  1. It was a good day in Melbourne for Rafael Nadal, who looked like his old self in a straight-sets victory against Australia's James Duckworth in a comeback game after not playing for months due to excruciating pain in his knees. © Reuters During the on-court interview after the match, Nadal said: “It's not easy to come back after a lot of months, and especially against a player who's super aggressive.” But Nadal's greatest highlight came after the game and during the press conference when the Spaniard was answering a reporter's question. Nada's eyes got stuck on a particular reporter who had dozed off during the press conference and he hinted the rest of the crowd towards the soon-to-be roast victim with a hilarious facial expression. ð´ Nothing gets past @RafaelNadal #AusOpen pic.twitter.com/PebIxmYg4t — #AusOpen (@AustralianOpen) January 14, 2019 Displaying the sharp wit that he commands, Rafa quickly said in a very serious manner: “It's not interesting today” which resulted in everyone ending up having a laughing fit, which woke the poor journalist up very abruptly. © Twitter/Australian Open “I know you were closing your eyes to be more focused on what I was saying,” he commented jokingly to make the situation less embarrassing for the reporter. Nothing gets past Rafael Nadal!
  2. There was a time when Public Display of Affection (PDA) was frowned upon and lovers on the streets or at a public place were asked to go 'get a room' instead. But welcome to the growing gene-pool of adventure seekers and love tolerant people around, PDA is very much back in action and everyone wants to be a part of it. PDA officially means showing your affection publicly towards the person you're involved with. Could be your spouse, girlfriend or a date you're on. Snogging their world off, while you're in a crowd definitely qualifies for PDA and up until recently, it wasn't so welcoming in the society. © Twitter What changed though? Our most probable guess is the celebrity couple hangover that influences the general public threefold. Off late, we've been seeing various celebrity couples holding hands, hugging each other or proclaiming their love for one another in public and this trend is becoming more popular by the day. Which makes us wonder, what is actually wrong with displaying a bit of affection before people? It's certainly better than displaying any amount of violence, or public display of arrogance or even contempt for that matter, between couples who're out in public. So, if we love instead of all that negativity, it's always easier to digest. © Pinterest So, just in case you're a brand new couple, or an old one or just out on a date and can't keep your hands off each other or want to try some PDA, maybe you can keep these basic PDA- guidelines in mind! (1) Don't Get All Touchy-Feely If You're With A Third Person If you're hanging out with someone who's third-wheeling you, then maybe you don't have to drive that point home by being all over your girlfriend. Instead, make an effort with the third friend who's come out with a couple and make him or her feel as much at home as you possibly can, by not displaying too much affection in front of them. © Pinterest (2) Avoid PDA In Front Of Kids Little ones watching you going nuts over each other, literally, is hell raising! I mean, I'm sure the kids probably understand what you're up to, but why do you have to put them through the torture of asking their parents why your hand was up her dress? Maybe a peck or a hug works but if you're surrounded by kids, definitely find a safer space for the two of you to do whatever you want to. © Pinterest (3) Not 'Handy' In The Middle Of The Dance floor While I understand the dance floor can be an intimate space to show love for one another, it's also space for people to show off their moves. So, if you're trying to climb on top of each other while dancing and making a show out of it, do it at your own peril and, of course, discretion! © Getty Images (4) Definitely Avoid Straddling Straddling is sitting with one leg on either side and if it's not a motorcycle, you're straddling on a person. But the thing is, public straddling is a bit over-the-top unless, of course, you're at a strip club or behind closed doors. So, if your girlfriend straddles you in public, maybe it's time to make sure to tell her the rules have changed a bit! © Pinterest (5) Don't Cause An Inconvenience Even if you find a decent place to display a copious amount of PDA, make sure it's not causing any form of an inconvenience to people around you. It could be inside a public loo, where you've bolted the door for minutes and are busy making out, or it could be at a place where you're blocking a path and are too busy to realise people are having an issue passing by and are too uncomfortable to tell you to move! Whatever it is, make sure you chose the space effectively and display affection as suited for the place. © Pinterest Yes, PDA can be quite tricky to pull off, mostly because it's a spontaneous decision and not planned. You can get carried away in a moment and carry forth showing a lot of affection towards your lover, but it's up to you to decide how much public display of affection is too much affection, at the end of the day! Trust me, even celebs know their limit and while I know it's very important to show as much love as you can towards someone you're fond of, it's also important to keep things easy going for the rest of the lot, around you!
  3. Nora Fatehi undoubtedly ruled the Bollywood music chart in 2018.

  4. If one has to make a definitive list of hypebeasts in the country, two fashionistas will definitely find their names in there. We are talking about Karan Johar - the king of maximalism, and Diljit Dosanjh - the 'Putt Jatt Da' turned super-hypebeast. If you watched the Koffee episode where Diljit and Badshah spilled their fashion beans, you'd already be aware about how seriously both these people take fashion. However, the fashion feud is more intense than we thought and KJo just admitted that he is extremely heartbroken and troubled by Diljit's fashion shenanigans, that never let Karan win the game for a change. © Instagram/karanjohar Karan said there is something Diljit does that makes sure that he constantly is ahead in the fashion game, and Karan is clueless about to what to do to tackle that. He opened up about his fashion struggles in an episode of Neha Dhupia's show, 'No Filter Neha'. © Instagram/karanjohar © Instagram/Diljitdosanjh Karan said Diljit always beats him when it comes to flaunting a new piece or a new brand. "So, I've a big problem Neha. I am really troubled by Diljit Dosanjh. I mean, like you know the thing is that, I think we both are like crazy shoppers and I think we invariably land up wearing the same clothes because we have the same brands that we love, and plus they are also from the new collection and we are bit of like, I'm also an online shopper, so I go through this process of buying these things and wearing them on occasion. But Diljit buys and wears, immediately and puts up an image," he quoted. © Instagram/karanjohar © Instagram/Diljitdosanjh He also recalled an incident where Diljit left him so heartbroken that he almost was on the verge of singing 'Channa Mereya'. "So we had this faux fur jacket, you must specify that because I don't wear fur jackets... it's from a brand called as GCDS (God Can't Destroy Streetwear) and I was saving it for my big photo opportunity time when I was travelling to Europe and suddenly the night before I take that flight, I see the image uploaded by Diljit Dosanjh... I was like I called Nikita, my stylist and I'm like I'm shattered, I'm broken and I'm totally like Channa Mereya out right now because I'm like I wanted to wear this jacket and that was my FWP. And, I was so upset, it broke my heart," he vented. © Instagram/karanjohar © Instagram/Diljitdosanjh All we can say is that it looks like even KJo's fashion struggles are as dramatically eventful as his movies, sigh.
  5. Nargis Fakhri is coming back on the silver screen after a long hiatus and this time it is a horror movie called 'Amavas'. The movie also stars Sachiin Joshi and by the looks of the trailer, it fails to draw any emotion actually. The first thing that will come to your mind after you watch the trailer is that it kind of gives you a hangover of movies like '1920' and '1921', that's because the man behind the camera is Bhushan Patel. As the name suggests, the movie traces the haunting of the 'Amavas ki raat'. The movie also stars Ali Asgar and Mona Singh in pivotal roles and is all set to release on 11th January, 2019.
  6. First Allahabad and now Faizabad, looks like there's a wave of 'renaming' going on in Uttar Pradesh right now. Faizabad will officially be known as Sri Ayodhya from today onwards. #BREAKING – Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister @myogiadityanath renames Faizabad to Sri Ayodhya amidst thunderous applause from spectators. | #YogiInAyodhya pic.twitter.com/QRu4HL0UDJ — News18 (@CNNnews18) November 6, 2018 Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath made the important announcement just a few minutes ago during the grand Diwali celebrations being held in Ayodhya. While his announcement was met with thunderous applause, people on Twitter seemed to be divided about the second renaming in the state. While a lot of them are applauding the CM for this change, others are questioning whether renaming places is the only thing he does! Here are some of the reactions: Ok...another one now from Ajay Singh Bisht ( Naam Parivartan wale ) ... Faizabad will be known as AYODHYA from now onward . Utter stupidity technically . Faizabad is a district while Ayodhya has been a small town in it . Can we not name whole India as Ayodhya with this logic ? — Kishlaysharma (@Kishlaysharma) November 6, 2018 There's some support. So Faizabad is #Ayodhya now....... Great work by @myogiadityanath ....... — Vijay Deenanath Chauhan PRAYAGRAJ waale (@nawaabsab) November 6, 2018 A keen observation. Now Faizabad city and district will be known as Ayodhya. Once again renaming in Uttar Pradesh.. — Ujjwal Tripathi (@UjjwalBallia) November 6, 2018 Okay, then. I always use to wonder how Ayodhya is in 'Faizabad' which is Islamic by name. Can we think of Kabba situated in a place with such nomenclature? Great job Yogiji @myogiadityanath https://t.co/Ckejkw5m6X — Anirudh Goyal (@goyalanirudh) November 6, 2018 Asking the real questions. So Faizabad will now be renamed as #Ayodhya. Will it change anything for people of Ayodhya — dipak mondal (@Dipak_Journo) November 6, 2018 That's a legit hashtag? District Faizabad will now be known by its original name AYODHYA. Thank you @myogiadityanath ji for giving two hoots about leftists' opinion. #YogiRox ðð — ShankhNaad (@ShankhNaad) November 6, 2018 Umm. Faizabad district now to be known as Sri Ayodhya, which is its historical name and spiritual reality. @myogiadityanath leads Bharat steadily back to Ram Rajya. https://t.co/LBgsxSYUtd — Dr David Frawley (@davidfrawleyved) November 6, 2018 Do you agree? Faizabad gets a new name, it will now be called Ayodhya. Happy to have chosen Yogi Adityanath? to change names and do nothing — Uzair Hasan Rizvi (@RizviUzair) November 6, 2018 Was it? FAIZABAD to be renamed as AYODHYA Great announcement from CM UP. — A.G.M.SWAMI (@agmswami) November 6, 2018 Shakespeare and politics. What's in the name-- William Shakespeare Name is everything here. It displays your religion, caste.-- Indian Politics#Faizabad #Ayodhya #AyodhyaDeepotsav — Ujjwal Tripathi (@UjjwalBallia) November 6, 2018 Okay. I am glad to know that #faizabad is being replaced by the #Ayodhya District. Thanks n big congratulations to CM @myogiadityanath Ji #AyodhyaRamMandir — Dr Alok Tripathi (@cancimmuno) November 6, 2018 That's a different take. As a native of Ayodhya, I feel the name change of the Faizabad district is a reflection of @BJP4India bankruptcy — Sanket Upadhyay (@sanket) November 6, 2018 Another take. Faizabad was a separate city. It had its own distinct identity and boundary from Ayodhya so renaming it is an attempt to erase the Nawabi history. — Rana Safvi رعÙا राना (@iamrana) November 6, 2018 Alright. Faizabad is Ayodhya. â Now the fake historians, pseudo seculars, fake liberals, paid activists, commirats, anti-nationals will indulge in bangles breaking procession. Democracy in danger, UP overtaken by Hinduvta Brigade... ððð#Diwali#YogiInAyodhya #Faizabad #Ayodhya — Tapan Parida (@tkparida) November 6, 2018 A lot of important questions. How does renaming Faizabad to Sri Ayodhya help? This wasn't the demand of the seers. Isn't name changing just a political gimmick? — Marya Shakil (@maryashakil) November 6, 2018 Will he? wth will yogi adityanath ever stop? #faizabad — Maryam Shaikh (@Teeyarn) November 6, 2018 Wow. #Ayodhya becomes the District name for erstwhile #Faizabad. Moghul names will become a part of history books only. Jai Shri Ram — Abhinav Lakhera (@AbhinavLakhera) November 6, 2018 That last line, tho. Only and only a Ram temple will be built in Ayodhya Faizabad district will now be called as Ayodhya A Medical College by the name “DASHARATH” And an Airport after the name of “LORD RAM” These were the prominent decisions taken by Yogi Ji in Ayodhya DEEPAVALI SAFFRONISED — Mahesh Vikram Hegde (@mvmeet) November 6, 2018 A lot, apparently. What's in a name? - William Shakespeare A lot is in a name. - Yogi Adityanath #Faizabad #Ayodhya — Roshan Rai (@RoshanKrRai) November 6, 2018
  7. Just like everything else, Chinese companies try to copy or steal ideas from innovative companies and sell it as their own. Of course, there are a few exceptions to the rule however in a new scandal, Chinese hackers and spies were caught by U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) for stealing confidential aircraft technology from American and French companies. According to the indictment, the two accused were Chinese intelligence officers. © YouTube We've already seen Chinese companies lifting ideas, technology and designs in other products such as smartphones, earphones and even cars; however, this is the first time Chinese intelligence officers have been caught stealing information. According to DOJ, that from January 2010 until May 2015, the officers and their teams attempted to hack and steal tech related to a new turbofan engine. Stealing the information would enable Chinese companies (public and private) to copy and build similar jet engines. Stealing of this information would prevent the Chinese from investing a lot of money into research and development. During the time of the hacks, a government-owned aerospace company was working to develop a comparable engine. © Pexels The Chinese hackers targeted firms like Capstone Turbine, French company Safran SA, that co-develops engines with U.S.-based General Electric and other companies in Arizona, Wisconsin, Massachusetts, Oregon, and the United Kingdom. The packers used techniques such as phishing schemes, domain hijacking, and using the companies' own websites to steal visitor information. The two accused were employed by the French company and used their position to install the Sakula remote access trojan onto their systems. "State-sponsored hacking is a direct threat to our national security," said U.S. Attorney Adam Braverman. "The concerted effort to steal, rather than simply purchase, commercially available products should offend every company that invests talent, energy, and shareholder money into the development of products.” Seems like Chinese entities can't help themselves from stealing information and ideas rather than investing in research and development. Earlier this month, Yanjun Xu, a spy for the Chinese ministry of state security, was arrested for economic espionage and attempting to steal trade secrets from US aviation and aerospace companies.

  8. How often do you see yourself ditching the rat race that is a 9-to-5 job? It's that the one thing in your life that always leaves little to the imagination, post the first few months at your new place of work, no matter how many times you change organisations in the hope of finding the one. Everyone is in the quest to find that one place of work and worship that would set them free, and help them to finally discover what it is like to love their work, because this is exactly what they've slogged for so hard, ever since they graduated and yet, the “satisfaction and bliss” continues to evade them even after so many years of keeping at it. © Red Chillies Entertainment Well, turns out there's an entire generation of young men and women around the world who feel similarly, and the good news is that they have found the way of breaking free from this Sisyphean cycle! There is an entire online movement that has picked up pace in the recent years, which identifies itself as FIRE (Financial Independence, Retire Early) and comprises of a large community of young professionals from around the world, who are all for the hustle in the early years of life, saving up on those loaded paychecks, invest, and then live off the interest and profits for the rest of their life. © MSM Motion Pictures Sounds pretty sorted, doesn't it? Surely it can't be that easy? But there was no rocket science involved, then how is it that they're managing to retire at 40 while still doing the same things our parents did all their life? Well, bear with us for a moment and trust us with all the deets you can't wait to devour. Naren and Sugandha spoke to TOI and shared their personal story of aiming to retire early, and this is what they said, “when you become financially independent by 45, you can make bold life choices like changing careers, starting a business, working fewer hours for a healthier work-life balance or, simply taking a break for a few years”. © Nadiadwala Grandson Entertainment Now, that totally makes sense but it seems easier said than done. The pressing question still remains is, how do they do it? Here's your answer. In their interview to 'How Stuff Work', Tanja Hester and Mark Bunje aged 38 and 41 respectively, shared the meaty secret of their success story of retiring at 40. The secret is to downsize your expenses even as you keep banking those hefty paychecks at the end of every month. Something like moving into a smaller but comfortable apartment, using public transport more often and living a debt-free life as much as possible. The next step is to save super rigorously and cut on those superfluous expenses. With all that saved money, what you gotta do is INVEST! That's key you guys, and THE thing that'll make it or break it for you when you wanna retire at 40. Put your hard-earned money in slow-growing investments to draw benefits from for the second half of your life! © Red Chillies Entertainment FIRE supporters swear by the need to save 25 times their annual living expenses. Basically, the idea is to invest in the stock market or bonds and keep reinvesting in the dividends you incur and let the money grow steadily over time. By the end of it, you get to withdraw 4% a year and yet, never run out of money! Hence, we'd suggest you start eyeing those major sales in your favourite stores, use more of food coupons and invest in living budgets to help you achieve your goals in the longer run. Don't think you'd have to live like a monk for all the years prior to your retirement, but rather consider living a less lavish life for 15-17 years as the price you pay for a financially free life along with an early retirement, that would really allow you to do what you truly love. © Excel Entertainment We can only imagine how life would turn out to be once we reach there right? Post the hustle in our 20s and 30s, at least we'd have the confidence in our future we have set out to build for ourselves - one that we will really be able to live on our own terms.
  9. I have said the phrase “anything can be a meme” so many times but I never, ever thought even for one second that this would mean people will start making memes about moths. Yes, seriously. Moths!!! I'm pretty sure everyone has seen at least one of these weird memes that are floating around on the internet and after some investigation, we've tracked down what started it all. Actually, it was more like a quick Google search but whatever. Apparently, it all started on Reddit when user No_Reason27 posted a picture of a moth outside their window back in July. © Twitter And thus, began the journey of this unexpected meme. I'm not sure but this seems to be the first instance of the picture – and moths in general – showing up on Twitter. y'all got any fuckin lamps? pic.twitter.com/aTpxQdNz7G — jon (@jonwadec) August 7, 2018 And now, people can't seem to stop talking about moths. the moths looking through my window at night pic.twitter.com/H9aqp6KADq — nick (@3hunnathot) September 26, 2018 So many memes in one.

  10. There isn't another feeling that's more capable of inducing a heart-thumping rush than realising that you have fallen (in too deep) for someone. Well, on second thoughts, that's perhaps second only to the few other times you went paragliding or bungee jumping in some remote part of the country. But you get our point, this heady feeling is definitely something you can't just ignore anymore. Well, this might be all too new (or old) for you, but tough luck 'cause Cupid has decided to strike and there's no point in trying to run away from it now. So here's how it goes. You feel lovestruck, you've pondered over your cushy feelings for the past hundred hours and now all you really wish to do is come out with it to your lady love. But wait, before you do that, there's something you gotta know. © Dharma Productions Love isn't the first thing that's going to motivate the woman you are seeking, to accept or reciprocate your love, let alone convince her to get into a relationship with you. We know it doesn't make sense, right? Wasn't love supposed to be the pivotal force behind all the matters of the heart? Well, seems like times have changed and women today have decided to give the top spot to other things of significance. While it is a fact universally known that love forms the essence of every relationship, especially a romantic one, women today are seeking deeper connections that are more than just your profession of love. If you are wondering what such a thing is supposed to mean in the times of Tinder and Hinge, then that's exactly where the problem lies and women would want you to wrap your head around it, before you make that confession of love. © T-Series A deeper, spiritual connection is what women are seeking in the long run. This would eventually lead to other things that we all look for in a relationship but the start has to be such. Hence, if this love doesn't happen to be the love you think it is, and you aren't sure if a spiritual connection is something you'd want to invest in, you'd better steer clear right away. It's true that people often drop remarks such as, the “real thing” is not to be found in today's time that's dominated by one-night stands and passing flings, but the real thing is, we can never be too sure when “the one” (if there exists anything of the sort) decides to make an appearance in our life. But when they do, love won't be the only thing on their mind and you're expected to know as much. © Vishesh Films Women want real relationships that are not just a first copy of popular rom-coms. They know it as much as you do, that most of that shit is scripted and reality is by far more trying. They don't want you to be gushing over them all the time or treat their every whim as a priority. Instead, they want the real thing, real interaction and companionship. What that means is you gotta chuck your emotional elusiveness, communicate more, share your feelings, concerns and even the baggage, as openly as you discuss your day at work. What that means is, that she's up for discussing those ugly feelings we all try too hard to keep from others and wants you to be equally willing to participate in it. © Dharma Productions So we guess it's only fair if they want to be sure that you wouldn't run for the woods the moment you need to work through difficult situations and emotions. They want you to basically tell the truth in love, like always and at all times. It's kind of like letting her know, what and how much you're willing to invest in this relationship and truthfully so. We also need to keep in mind that like just the way we can't team up with any random person on this planet to work on our dream project, women also can't settle for just any man who doesn't embody the values they're looking for in their romantic partners. Things like commitment, emotional availability and a spiritual connection become key when women make decisions regarding the matters of the heart. They wish to be in a relationship that is led by their values and not just feelings - that's something we may have failed to realise this long. © Viacom 18 Motion Pictures Women like to be with a man whose character and core values align with theirs. She wants to know you would be by her side when the world begins to shake and crumble, as much as in the moments of joy life throws her way. Women seek such men who have the power to stand up for themselves as well as for others, the ones who are not afraid to feel and definitely not scared of showing it. Women today are looking for partners in the truest sense of the world. They want to share not only a relationship but everything else that such a commitment brings into existence. So you might love her, but if you can't share her spiritual aspirations and celebrate her vision for personal and professional growth, you're not gonna make it. © Jhoom Jhoom Productions It seems women are looking forward to more open terms of sharing a bond that's not tied down by stereotypes. One that lets you be the person you are and allows her to be herself when she's with you. They want to have a say in every aspect of the relationship just as much as you do and they want to pick up the ropes too. It's like they want their men to know that they want to take care of you and your dreams and wouldn't settle for anything less other than you fanning their ambitions, no matter how high they might be. Perhaps, they want to ensure that you wouldn't give in to gender stereotypes and hold it against her if she brings home a higher paycheck than you or stays back for an important meeting instead of cooking you dinner. © Dharma Productions Equality, respect and a certain amount of sensitivity and empathy are the values she would score you upon. Not on the basis of how flamboyant your proposal was or how eager you are to meet her extended family. We've got to match their wavelengths and trust them to be our partners if we wish this feeling to get anywhere beyond the reason of your sleepless nights. As for love, no it's not off their charts at all. It still remains the main footing of all their relationships. After all, would we be even discussing this entire topic at such a great length if she wasn't already in love with you? But for now, being in love is no longer the dominant reason for her to say yes to a deeper and committed relationship. She is looking for more and we can only figure out how much of it do we have it in us to match up to the core values they are looking for.
  11. Two gorgeous divas and one attention-grabbing distraction – that's the word on the street that's got the two actresses fuming. And rightly so! Rochelle and Nia have been all over the place, yet there is someone else who has been stealing the limelight right under their noses. Don't believe me? Watch for yourself and find out. Photoshoot Or Not, Rochelle's Never Been Sidelined Before Guess, Rochelle is never used to being the second fiddle when it comes to attention. But can you seriously blame the photographer? Look at that beauty behind her! Even Nia Sharma Had A Hard Time Dealing With The Paparazzi Nia definitely didn't spend hours glamming up for the red carpet to be shunned by the photographers for a more gorgeous muse. But if you too can't get your eyes off the beauty that got the paparazzi crazy, there is a lot more to that than you'd want to know – like the Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza is all set to make another stunning debut with its Autumn Orange colour. This SUV comes with all new features! The exteriors have gloss black alloy wheels, and dual tone color shade of autumn orange and pearl arctic white, and a cockpit-style instrument cluster with mood lights in the interiors. The floating roof design and the dual tone paint makes the car stand out. The latest edition also includes Auto Gear Shift technology. Thoughtfully designed, this car is equipped with the SmartPlay Infotainment system. Brezza Can't get this beauty off your mind yet, right?
  12. Ever thought of having so much fun in your life that you forget what it's like to be sad and forlorn? Yes, that's exactly how you feel when you date a 'Punjabi' girl. Big heart with a bigger appetite, Punjabi girls are fun to date, even when you're not in a space to date anyone. She'll uplift your spirits and make you feel warm and full of love. What else do you really need in life, eh? Here's what's in store for you if you date a fun-loving Punjabi girl (1) If You're A Foodie You're Gonna Love Her Punjabi's love their food. Period. Well, most of it is stereotyped, when people say they love Butter Chicken or any form of chicken, but they enjoy all and every sort of food. Basically, they live to eat! So, if you're ever out on a date with her, let her decide the food joint because she definitely knows her food! And if you know your food too, then it's so much better! (2) She's Definitely A Fighter One thing you should keep in mind while dating a Punjabi girl is that she will never call it quits, especially if she's standing up for something she knows or thinks is right! She's a born fighter and will fight through anything. Nothing really seems to intimidate her and she doesn't care much any judgments passed at her. (3) She's Full Of Life If you ever go out dancing with her or just out anywhere, you'll see how much fun she can be! Dancing to loud boisterous music is her forte and laughing out loud to almost everything is in her nature. Never a dull day with her for sure. (4) If You Ever Meet Her Family You'll Fall In Love With Them Punjabi families are usually open-minded and love having fun together. So, if you're ever invited over to their house, they make sure you're done with the pleasantries and formalities. They usually treat you like their own and include you in any sort of fun they're having. So, if she invites you over for a drink with her family, don't turn down the offer! (5) She Can Outrun You In A Drinking Competition Yup, she got it from her genes, for sure. Punjabi's love drinking and they surely know their Whiskey. So, if you're out drinking with her, don't be shell-shocked at the amount she guzzles and still has the capacity for more. (6) She's Very Straightforward With Her Thoughts Nope, she's not the kind to beat around the bush or mollycoddle her thoughts before saying them out loud. She says it as it is and doesn't really care much for the consequences. Which could be a bad thing too, but more often than not, it's an endearing quality. If something doesn't look good on you, she'll say it loud. If she doesn't like a restaurant you've taken her too, she'll say it out loud. If you're a big dull dud and she wants to break up with you, she'll say it out loud! (7) She Will Never Compromise On Family Values Even though she's full of life, fun-loving and big on alcohol, she doesn't forget her family values and never compromises on them. She'll have a lot of respect for her family and never let her family honour down, no matter what she does or who she's with. (8) She Has Ample Self Respect If you're dating a Punjabi girl, you should know she comes with a boatload of self-respect. Which doesn't mean she's full of herself, it just means that nothing can pull her self-respect down. If someone breaks her heart, she moves on and grieves without letting people know she's hurting. There is no breaking her morale or her self-esteem, ever. (9) Every Moment With Her Is Unpredictable Yup, that's what she is. A bag of unpredictability. In a good way though. Imagine going out on a date with her and ending up in the hills or in a pool! What started off as a quiet, sombre evening is now a bundle of unpredictability. That's what it's like to date a Punjabi girl. You never know what life has in store for you, once you're with her. (10) She Has A Mighty Big Heart Yup, as garish and flamboyant Punjabi's may be, they do have big and welcoming hearts and if she's a true blue Punjabi kudi, she's got one too. She'll spend lavishly but live wisely and will always look out for the one she truly loves. She'll even look out for unfortunate souls around her and help them as much as she can. She's just not blessed with looks and a carefree personality, she has a loving heart too. So, if you ever date a Punjabi girl or have dated one, you'll have the time of your life with her. Just don't rub her the wrong way (pun unintended) because nothing will be worse than facing her wrath!
  13. What if a 'khush khabri' makes you not so 'khush' but awkward? The trailer of Ayushmann Khurrana & Sanya Malhotra's 'Badhaai Ho' just dropped and it is the quirkiest thing we have watched in a very long time. The poster of the movie was shared earlier and it did raise our curiosity. Ayushmann Khurrana, Sanya Malhotra and Gajraj Rao can be seen curled up in a foetal position in the poster, and every character has a different expression. While Ayushmann and Gajraj look stressed, Sanya has a chilled out look. © Junglee Pictures © Junglee Pictures © Junglee Pictures The film has everything to do with a 'naya mehman' coming into the house. This slice-of-life comedy revolves around Neena Gupta's character (Ayushmann's mom) who ends up getting pregnant at an older age and this surprising twist takes them through a roller coaster ride. © YouTube Sanya Malhotra, who plays his love interest, is very chilled out about the issue and often delivers the quirkiest lines. Every scene takes you on a laughter riot. Surekha Sikri (of 'Balika Vadhu' fame) plays Ayushmann's grandmother and fits the bill right. It is amazing to see Neena Gupta on the big screen after a long time. This is the first time we see Ayushmann and Sanya together and one can't miss their chemistry. They will light up your screen with their crazy antics. Directed by Amit Ravindernath Sharma, the film also stars Surekha Sikri, Gajraj Rao and Sheeba Chaddha. The movie has a strong ensemble cast that makes this a hysterical ride and will hit the screens near you on October 19. Check out the trailer here:
  14. We start watching a TV series because of either a good plot or a strong protagonist. But sometimes, as the series progresses, it's the anti-hero that we feel empathy for. At times we start rooting for him. Maybe it's because of his great acting or the story showing that the guy is not all bad. Whenever we get an explanation for the bad choices he made, we get convinced that maybe he wasn't all wrong. This is how the anti-hero becomes one of the favourites of the TV series, if not THE favourite. Here are five such anti-heroes that won our hearts: 1. Punisher – Daredevil Season 2 © Netflix I don't know about you but the only reason 'Daredevil' was entertaining to me was because of this guy. He did what needed to be done, his actions made sense and he simply overshadowed our superhero. He's one of the best antiheroes that we've ever seen. 2. Boyd Crowder – Justified © FX Productions This man blows up a church in his first scene. Then he kills his partner because he found him a little 'off.' And yet, as the show goes on, we end up not hating this fellow, to say the least. Boyd Crowder runs a whore business, deals in drugs, kills people and does every other thing that makes him a bad character. Yet, we feel sympathetic towards him. Power of great writing, maybe! 3. Klaus – Vampire Diaries © Alloy Entertainment Klaus was one selfish SOB. He lived for himself, always kept his interests ahead and did whatever it took to achieve his goals. But somehow, we always liked him. Maybe it was the devilish charm, or maybe the British accent or perhaps the justifications on some of his bad actions, that we wanted this character to stick around. It became so popular that the network decided to start a new series revolving around Klaus & his family – The Originals. 4. Jaime Lannister – Game of Thrones © HBO The man slept with his sister. He killed the king he swore to protect. He plotted and revenged against the enemies of his sister, and some of them were good people. He attempted to kill a child who saw him with his sister in a compromising position. We should be disgusted by this character. But we aren't. It may be because of the pretty face, or the fact that he's the only one in his family who's sympathetic towards our beloved Tyrion. We end up liking him—not enough to see him sit on the throne but surely enough to see him alive until the last episode. 5. Gus – Breaking Bad © Sony Pictures Television Gus had his own style. He was calm, composed and knew what he was doing. Perhaps that made him likable. Or maybe it was the fact that Heisenberg needed Gus to survive in the meth game. Whatever the reason maybe, we didn't want this character to die. You know more such characters? Comment below and let us know!
  15. Starvation mode—you may have heard of this phrase if you have ever tried to diet and stopped losing weight after some time. You hit a plateau and it stays there seemingly forever. Your coach or your gym trainer will say things like your metabolism has shut down, you are into starvation mode, you have a broken or damaged metabolism, and so on. But does 'starvation mode' actually exist? Does your metabolism ever get broken? Let's find out. The Minnesota Starvation Study Let us look at the most infamous (as per the ethical standards) study known as the 'Minnesota Starvation Experiment' and its findings. It was a study conducted by Dr. Ancel Keys and his colleagues in 1945. The study was conducted on 32 men where they were semi-starved at a mind-boggling 55% caloric deficit for a rash 24 weeks. To add a bit of context to the harshness of the deficit here, I usually put my clients on a 10 to 25% caloric deficit based on their goals and lifestyle. © YouTube In the study, the average maintenance calories of the group were around 3400 kcals and to induce a 55% deficit, their intake was dropped to 1500 kcals for five and a half months straight. At the end of the study, the researches found that NONE of the subjects entered the so-called 'starvation mode' and stopped losing weight. Instead, on an average, they dropped around 24.5% of their body weight and continued losing so in the caloric deficit. For example, a 100-kilo guy would weigh around 75 kilos by the end of this study. © YouTube Most of these men dropped to an average of 5% body fat during this experiment. As you can see in the image above, how some of the subjects ended up looking towards the end of the study. One thing that did happen in the study was that the metabolic rate of these individuals slowed down by 40% on average during the course. This does happen when you diet and something known as 'adaptive thermogenesis' kicks in as a defense mechanism. Of this 40% drop, 25% was associated with the drop in body weight alone. Meaning, the lesser body tissue you have, the lesser calories it will burn. The other 15% was due to adaptive thermogenesis. © YouTube Irrespective of the drop, the subjects got to 5% body fat and the 15% drop in metabolic rate was the highest drop at those lean levels. And yes, the thing to note here is that the 15% drop was not sufficient enough to stop them from losing body fat. The main takeaway from this study would be that there is nothing known as a metabolic shutdown or broken metabolism or starvation mode in reality and if you are struggling to lose weight, this definitely is not the reason for it. The answer to “does your metabolism shut down” in a single word would be a resounding NO. This study, though a very severe and a harsh one, does answer a lot of questions and without a doubt, no ethics board would sanction such a study in today's world.

  16. Admit it, niceness is boring! Perhaps that's why all the badass protagonists have a dark side which almost put them in the category of villains. The only difference is, they 'almost' don't cross the line. That's what makes them an Anti-Hero. They have a charm which gets them out of everything even after doing bad things and the audience cheers for them, despite their raw actions. Following are such anti-heroes who've won our hearts: 1. Raylan Givens – 'Justified' “I've shot people I like more for less.” © Sony Pictures Television The man isn't afraid of killing. Even when there's absolutely no need for it! At times, it becomes hard to believe if he's a U.S. Marshal or a criminal. Yet his cowboy hat and the cheeky smile would make you root for him. 2. Jack Bauer – '24' "I have killed two people since midnight, I haven't slept in over 24 hours. So maybe, maybe you should be a little more afraid of me than you are right now." © 20th Century Fox Jack Bauer, the most lethal weapon of the U.S., is as bad as an anti-hero can be. The man is never afraid of getting his hands dirty when it comes to saving his country. 3. Dexter Morgan – 'Dexter' “You can't play on my feelings. I don't have any.” © CBS Television Distribution It's a delight to watch serial killers in a well-scripted TV show. It becomes even better when the serial killer himself is the law. Working in the Miami police department, Dexter Morgan finds time to hunt down the people who got away from the law. 4. Hank Moody – 'Californication' “A morning of awkwardness is far better than a night of loneliness” © Showtime Networks The guy knows how to drink, do drugs, get women, and write! He's a fu**** up guy who somehow lands in fu**** up situations. He has done things a normal husband or father wouldn't do and yet, he manages to get our sympathy in his situations. 5. Damon Salvatore – 'The Vampire Diaries' “I do believe in killing the messenger. You know why? Because it sends a message.” © Warner Bros. TV Distribution The hero who only believes in consequences and not the actions. He kills people for fun, tries to steal his brother's girlfriend, drinks whisky for breakfast and always gets in the way of trouble. Yet, he's the most adored character of the TV series. Such is his charm! 6. Don Draper – 'Mad Men' “What you call love was invented by guys like me to sell nylon.” © Lionsgate Television A narcissistic asshole who drinks like a fish, smokes like a chimney and cheats on his wife. Yet, you just can't hate the guy. 7. Walter White – 'Breaking Bad' “I am the one who knocks.” © Sony Pictures Television No matter what he does, this chemistry teacher somehow manages to gain sympathy. Be it for cooking meth or killing someone! 8. Tony Soprano – 'The Sopranos' "There's an old Italian saying: you **** up once, you lose two teeth.” © HBO Entertainment The Mafia. The Gangster. The Bad Man. The Killer. The Thief. Despite all this, you'll end up loving him and his actions once you start watching the series. 9. Gregory House – 'House' “Arrogance has to be earned.” © NBC Universal Television Distribution The wittiest character of all and the father of sarcasm! This doctor is rude, doesn't play well with others, is definitely not a team player, and is a drug addict. But he takes on cases which no one else can solve and isn't afraid of experimenting, even at the cost of his patient's life. In plain words, he's the most entertaining character of all! Now that you know being Mr. goody two-shoes is overrated, which poison are you going to pick?
  17. One of the most neglected factors when it comes to making progress in terms of fitness that people ignore is stress. Many a times, people who struggle with their fitness goals are going through some sort of stress in their life. Most people make the mistake of ignoring this factor but once you start managing stress better, other things start falling into place more easily. How Stress Works © Pixabay Trying to make progress in your fitness levels while being chronically stressed is like pushing your motorbike to the place that you want to ride it to. You might reach there but it would be a hell lot harder than if you would have ridden it. The reason behind it is that your body's sympathetic nervous system is stuck in "on" mode. It's like your body's smoke alarm is constantly going off which basically makes it's very hard for you to focus on anything and it depletes your will as well. The Peace Killing Hormone Is Friends With Stress Being stressed also makes your body produce a hormone called cortisol which has been linked to triggering cravings for comfort foods and eventually, food binges. Stress also depletes the energy you use to exert self-control. For example, if you are having a bad day at the office and someone offers you a piece of cake, you'll find it a lot harder to not eat it. Our impulse control takes a hit when we feel distressed, so we look for ways to feel better and that piece of cake looks like a very good alternative. How To Tackle Stress 1) The first and the foremost thing that you should do is that you should admit that you are stressed out. Only then you will look for a remedy to your problem. 2) Once, that is out of the picture, you should scale back a little. May be cut down on the number of sessions you work out every week and start dedicating your time towards an activity that you enjoy doing. This will help alleviate the stress of trying to do too much at once. 3) If you are trying to lose weight and the weight on the scale is stuck, remember, weight is just a number. Giving it too much importance can be stressful. There are many more factors to consider when it comes to tracking “fat loss” like taking your measurement, taking photos of yourself regularly, and looking at how your clothes fit you, etc. © Thinkstock 4) You should also look at adding activities which can relax you mentally and physically like yoga and meditation. These activities only take a few minutes of your time rather than hours and can go a long way de-stressing you. Taking care of yourself and it does not only include fitness and nutrition, take up a hobby or do an activity that you like doing, as doing things that you like reduces stress and keeps you active which in turn helps you live a happy life along with a healthy one.

  18. Jurgen Klopp has reinvigorated the Liverpool squad since taking over the reins from Brendon Rodgers in 2015. He not only has the support of his players but also the fans because finally they have someone at the helm who knows how to maintain a balance between performance and growth. As soon as he took up the mantle at Anfield, Klopp has slowly and steadily build a team which is in no ways perfect but does the job efficiently and therefore he has earned the respect of the old guard at Liverpool. Take for example the shock defeat which was dished out to the men in red after leading 3-1 at halftime. © Reuters When asked about the amateur mistake made by Loris Karius in defending the post to concede the fourth goal against Bournemouth, this is what Klopp had to say: "If you make mistakes, you get criticised. That's life, absolutely no problem. If you have the quality you get stronger from it. I'm pretty sure Jamie Carragher was criticised during his career at some point. I respect and accept everything you say about us today. If you want to say we are blind, silly, not good enough, then do it. It doesn't influence what I think about my team. That's all,” Klopp said. He further implied that mistakes were the pathway to success and elaborated, "Of course we made mistakes today, what else should I say? We missed chances... so we don't have good strikers? We have good strikers. The last goal wasn't the luckiest situation for a keeper. Loris will wish he had made a decent save, I'd have wished for a decent save. But this says nothing about him as a goalkeeper. It has happened and we go on." © Reuters These comments by Klopp show what kind of a manager he actually is. He is hard on his players during training and he rides them to perform and give their best on the field but once the game is done, he goes back to the drawing board because no matter how much he would love to change the result of the game, the only thing under his control is the preparation for the next one. This is one of the reasons why Liverpool has looked so strong this season. They are always looking to improve are taking the season game by game. There won’t be too many surprises if they do go on to clinch the title because this is one team which has figured out how to move forward without being anchored to the results of the past.
  19. Everyone has a secret they would like to keep from their partners from time to time. It's not like they deliberately want to hide something to hurt the other person, it's just some innate fears of opening up completely to your partner, just so you don't get judged. The other day I met this woman and we were having a similar discussion and she told me she has 'secret sexy behaviours' she doesn't like to display in front of her boyfriend. It seriously sounded like a line from *** And The City but I knew what she was trying to say and I absolutely get that. © Twitter But more often than not, men are curious as always and they would always like to know what she keeps from them and never reveals. It's just to ease their burden to constantly try and understand and read women. So, I made it a little simpler. I asked 10 women about the one thing they have never confessed to their partner and this is what they had to say. I am As Shallow As They Come "My boyfriend doesn't know this but I am as shallow as they come. I have dumped guys in the past because of bad grammar, oily hair, bad skin or terrible breath. I am not kidding. No, I do look at their personality too but come on, you have to live with that face forever. Of course my boyfriend doesn't know this about me and thank god he's perfect, as of now" - Meera, 28 It's Okay To Fake It "Come on, like you don't know women fake orgasms? And it's absolutely okay to do so as well. It gives my man the power that he's pleased me in some way and he's super nice to me doing things for me all week long. So, I think it's absolutely worth faking. Don't get me wrong, he does give me real orgasms too at times but there are times when a girl has just gotta fake it"!- Tanya, 30 Sometimes I Chat With Other Boys "There are times I chat with other boys to distract myself when me and my guy have a bad fight. He says the meanest things to me at times and I find respite by randomly chatting other men up through a dating app. Yeah, I haven't deleted my Tinder profile yet and I don't intend to"! - Nancy, 23 I Am A Closeted Shopaholic "I shop more than he knows I do and I am not ashamed about it but he really doesn't have to know everything" - Kavya, 28 I Fantasise About Having *** With More Than 2 Men "I fantasise about having *** with more than two men but I can't tell my boyfriend that, he wouldn't take it well I think. I also fantasise about orgies and gangbangs but it's too much information to give out"! - Kanish (name changed), 33 I Smoke Pot "Yeah my boyfriend has a stick up his a** when it comes to 'drugs' but is pot really drugs? He wouldn't get it so I smoke pot behind his back without him finding out. What's the need"? - Sara, 32 I've Had *** With Other Women "My boyfriend doesn't know this but I have had flings with other women and quite enjoyed it. I know my boyfriend will be thrilled about the idea and would want us to experiment with another woman but I am afraid he'll keep asking me for that. So it's best he doesn't know". - Deepti, 27 I Masturbate A Lot "Me and my guy live together and anytime he's not around I masturbate because I love it." - Tarika ( Name changed), 30 I Don't Like His Mother "I really don't like his mother. She's intrusive, possessive and I think she's obsessed with him. I just can't get myself to say this to him". - Mallika, 29 I Check His Phone "I check his phone all the time and I have mastered the art of doing so, without him finding out! There's a thrill attached to it and I don't have a reason to really do it because he's honest but I still can't help myself"! - Divya, 26 I am sure there are things men don't tell women either but who's to judge if they're worse or better than these confessions you've just read above.
  20. The argument about which food or food groups are good and which are bad is going on for about ages. People who believe in the “good food vs. bad food” mindset include some very famous people and people with great bodies with huge followings and they preach this approach like a religion to their followers, as these people have a great deal of success following this approach. © YouTube Regardless of the way you achieve success with this approach, it is not and should not be considered a long haul solution as it most certainly creates an undesirable relationship with food. Developing eating disorders to achieve and maintain your fitness goals is the last thing that you should be looking at doing. Rather than attempting to evade the utilization of "bad foods", a superior outlook to have is moving toward nutrition with the objective of being inclusive rather than exclusive. This means we need to receive an approach of including "healthy" nutrient dense foods, as opposed to barring foods that won't not have these characteristics. Now, let's get this clear, there are no foods that are inherently unhealthy for you which means there is no food out that that you can eat once and do harm to your body regardless of the quantity. The reason that some foods are labelled “bad” is because of the lack or low availability of micronutrients and nutrients like protein and fiber etc. A better term to use should be “empty calories” rather than calling them bad. This term means that while these foods contribute to your calorie and macronutrient counts, they won't do much to satisfy your micronutrient requirements. While this description is relatively accurate, it doesn't mean these foods should be villainized and completely avoided. © IIFYM What you should keep in mind is that you do not necessarily have to remove these “empty calories” from your diet as they can only be detrimental when you eat the majority of your calories out of your diet from them. Just make sure that you have included the “healthy foods” on priority in your diet and your nourishment i.e your nutrient needs are taken care of. After that, feel free to have the “bad foods” (which really aren't bad at all) in moderation as this will improve your flexibility and therefore your consistency. Doing so will also keep the psychological stress of dieting at bay as you will feel more normal, have more flexibility, less restriction, and ultimately more long-term adherence and success. For example sugar, which isn't inherently bad for you or fattening as some people claim, it is a carbohydrate like any other and has the same caloric value of 4 kcals per gram, the reason why sugar is avoided because it is not very satiating, for example - take 30 gram rice and 30 gram sugar, which food do you think will fill you up better? Also, when you are eating in a caloric deficit to lose fat, the quantity of food you get to eat is less, eating sugar only makes it lesser, also it is devoid of micronutrients and there are better options like fruits and artificial sweeteners but if your calorie quota allows you to have sugar, you most certainly can. Remember, your body does not know what “good” or “bad” foods are. Food that you eat, whether it be sweets and namkeens or chicken and broccoli, is fuel for the body which is used as energy. So, if you are trying to lose weight, as long as the energy intake is lesser than energy expenditure you cannot gain weight as you do not have extra energy coming in to be stored as body fat. Also, when you have met your basic micronutrient needs, there is no benefit of eating extra micronutrients and once your body gets more than enough micronutrients, it doesn't continue to benefit from more. Conclusion Instead of worrying about which food is good or bad, you need to assess if your entire diet is good or bad. Believe it or not, a rigid “clean vs. dirty” diet can actually result in a poorer nutrient profile than an approach that includes a broader spectrum of foods. Claiming that you are doing it to get healthy but eating only a handful of foods everyday is just plain stupid. If you cut out almost every food or food group, you end up with an incredibly limited diet that is unlikely to satisfy your micronutrient needs. This leads to you being unable to digest “non-clean” foods without incredible discomfort due to the loss of the enzymes and gut bacteria that are essential for the digestion of a wide variety of foods.

  21. A unibrow is perhaps the only thing that no one can pull off (apart from Frida Kahlo, maybe). Especially when it comes to men, our faces usually tend to be hairy anyway, thanks to the beard and moustache - which is dope btw, but a unibrow is where we should draw the line. Hey, don't @ us because we are not saying this, but women are. We were curious about what women think about this oft-ignored facet of men's grooming, and wanted to hear it from them. So we went ahead and asked 10 women about their opinion on men having unibrows. Read on: © Twitter 1. "Kajol couldn't pull it off, neither can you. Please get rid of it! It's just small patch of hair that can be easily removed. Chop chop! I mean, thread thread!" - Ankita, 27, Works in marketing 2. "Umm, nope. Unibrows are ugly. I'm all about body-positivism and 'embracing your true self' and everything that comes with it, but I can't help but be a little hypocritical when it comes to this bit. It just makes a good looking man look weird and creepy. So no, thanks." - Muriel, 25, Works in advertising 3. "We women have to go to the parlour at least twice a month to make sure our brows are on point at all times, even when we don't have a unibrow. Don't you think men should at least try? Not to woo women, just for themselves. That will help with the former too, because let's face it - unibrows are a turn-off." Nandita, 26, Works in HR © Twitter 4. "Does anyone like unibrows? I bet no one does. It's a very obvious question, really, I think. It's just like having a bald patch - everyone wants to hide it - unless you're Vin Diesel and can pull it off. Okay that wasn't the best analogy because he's completely bald. I'll just be blunt and say it - unibrows are an eyesore." Priyanka, 29, Entrepreneur 5. "I think it's absolutely fine to have unibrows because it's not a choice. Not doing anything about it, is what I'm not ok with. But if you just don't care, it's fine! Just like during my 20's I was a total tomboy, was going through a rebellious phase and absolutely didn't give two hoots about superficial things like my looks. But that was my choice. I chose that for myself and was happy with how I was - actually I didn't even care. If a man is that carefree and doesn't attach importance to that, it's absolutely his choice and I'm no one to comment on it. But aesthetically speaking, I think a unibrow doesn't suit anyone." - Divya, 31, Writer © Twitter 6. "Let's break it down - it's hair. It's a patch of hair. The thing is, it's just at the wrong place. You get your beard shaved, right? Even your hair cut? Why do you do that? Because there was hair at places you didn't approve of, essentially, right? So what's the big deal with this one here? You won't magically lose 5 points from your masc scale if you get that part threaded. Actually if that's the reason you're hesitating to get it done, I'm afraid you don't have enough points to start with, if you know what I mean. Don't hate me. It's true." - Rukhsaar, 27, Works in advertising 7. "I like my men hairy. There, I said it. I actually prefer men who don't get their chest or torso waxed, and I think it's hot. But unibrow is not something I can get on board with. It's hair, yes, but it doesn't really count as body hair - you know what I mean? It just sits on your forehead making you look shabby, and often creepy." - Sunita, 28, Software engineer © Twitter 8. "I like symmetry. I think symmetry is the underlying factor behind everything that is beautiful. A unibrow kills the symmetry on a man's face. The gap on his forehead acts as a divider, which makes the face look symmetrical, and hence attractive. If that divider is not there, everything kind of looks haywire, and even a very good-looking man can look untidy - all for a little bit of hair. I think men should always get rid of their unibrow." - Ipshita, 32, Copy Editor 9. "All anyone needs is a salon appointment or a pair of tweezers. Why do they exist, again?" - Juhi, 30, Analyst © Twitter 10. "I think if a man wants to sport a unibrow, that's okay. I don't, and won't find that attractive is a whole other story altogether. I mean, it just looks bad. Please go to a salon and tell your barber to get it fixed. The thread will probably sting a little, but it's totally worth it, trust me." - Shubhra, 24, Student Ouch. Those are some strong opinions. But they mean well and they do know what they are talking about, so homies, please get rid of your unibrow if you have one. "You will become unrecognisable" - we were told.
  22. We, at Invision Community, love nothing more after a relaxing day writing PHP code, making commits in git and fighting with jQuery to indulge in a little therapeutic "me time". Given that we've all chosen to work in a nerdy industry (nerds are cool now, we checked) it's no surprise that our down time is spent on nerdy pursuits. Here's how our team spent their allotted and begrudgingly given free time. Ryan (Developer who loves of loud noises) I'm an audio nerd. I go out of my way to hand pick each individual component whenever I'm building a an audio system. My computer, for example, currently has 4 satellite speakers (two Bose, two DCM models which are no longer in production - what is a shame, they are better than any I've ever had), and a sub-woofer (Bose). My living room system is my pride and joy - everything currently runs through a Sony 7.1 channel surround sound system, with a Polk Audio center channel, two Kenwood JL series tower speakers (before JL Audio was it's own thing - each contain a 1.5" tweeter, 5" Midrange, and 12" Subwoofer), two side-surround satellites that need replacing, and will soon have two rear-surround Bose satellites. Each system has specifically been fine-tuned and equalized to my specification. (Editor: I'd be happy with a HomePod) The same applies to my guitar amps - I've spent years fine-tuning my amps to perfection, and constantly adjust and tweak various settings to get different sounds. Still not loud enough, we checked Jennifer (Designer who loves board games) As everyone likely knows I do a lot of pretty nerdy things, from cosplaying to video games to play by post roleplaying (collaborative writing) to collecting nerdy-shirts and playing board games but I think one of my more nerdy things would be that I collect socks and intentionally mismatch them (aka I'm Bi-sockual). I collect socks of all shapes and sizes to have for any occasion including socks with capes, leg warmers and more. I have a pretty nerdy collection including a ton of super hero socks, some Power Puff girls and more. (Editor: Socks with capes. What a time to be alive) These are clean, we checked Daniel (Developer who loves amusing English words) It all started several years ago as a present.. I fall in love with this hobby and got some nice trees from my ex-wife. The collection grew and grew. That's my "poor mans" bonsai collection.. I once trashed a 1000€ plant, then I sold all other which were worth more then 500€ except one and now I just have these left, but it's enought to keep me busy... and to not cause any sadness if something happens to them...Now i really enjoy trying to create my own stuff instead of taking care of bought stuff. (Editor: Daniel is hands down the most interesting person I've ever met) These are legal, we checked. Brandon (Developer who loves movies) I haven't done one in a while, but I like to have movie marathons sometimes. For instance, I'll plan to sit down one day and do nothing but watch Star Wars movies (or Harry Potter, or LOTR or whatever) all day in order. You then have to make the ever important decision of putting the prequels first, or after the originals, but otherwise it tends to be a fun experience watching the continuity from one distinct movie to the next (or, alternatively, looking for broken continuity). When I do this, we tend to eat popcorn, milkshakes and candy for lunch and dinner. Most of my family cannot sit still that long and will just bounce in and out during the marathon. (Editor: I'm in, when do you want me to pop over?) Spongebob lives under the sea, we checked Marc S (Tech who loves things that crash) I guess other than coding, the nerdiest thing I do is watch Formula 1 racing. Whilst this doesn't seem that nerdy, I do go a little overboard with it (as my wife reminds me regularly). This should give you a bit of an idea. At present we are approaching pre season testing. For those not familiar with formula 1, this is a testing phase before the new season, for teams to test their new cars. This means that the new cars are just being shown to the world for the first time. I will watch for these to see them as soon as they come out, then will take a look at what new parts I can see on the car in comparison to last year. Today for example saw the first glimpse of Mercedes, and at 3pm Ferrari will show off their new car online. In addition to that, I've been looking at the stats from last year, along with the know changes this year in engines. I have my own analysis of who I think will be the winners and losers, through the changes from last season in drivers, engine suppliers, and even paddock staff. Testing starts on the cars on Monday in barcelona. Whilst this is not on TV, I will be keeping myself updated with the latest events on there. My daily routine whilst testing is on consists of. Testing live stream running throughout the day during testing Teds notebook in the evening - An show which analyses the days testing F1 show - Another show which analyses each days testing Autosport review - Article online with analysis Sky news site - Usually some good analysis on there BBC Sport - Again, some good analysis and different points of view Motorsport.com - Pretty good website for analysis And of course the formula 1 website itself. Boring to many (Editor: yep), but I guess everyone has to have a hobby. For me its formula 1 analysis. Would love to have a go in one, but to do so it hugely expensive! (Editor: given your history with crashing things, you'd never get insurance) John Woo directed this clip, we checked Andy (Developer who loves to follow instructions) Following a recent project we worked on for LEGO, I rediscovered a love for the brick with the Saturn V. Since then I’ve also started a nice little collection of cars including the incredibly geeky 2704 piece Porsche 911 GT3 RS with functional PDK gearbox and the VW campervan. My family bought me a few more sets for Christmas and I’m toying (no pun intended (Editor: Puns are my thing, it's the only job I have left)) with building a city with the larger modular sets. I’d say that was fairly geeky but I really enjoy the downtime of sitting down and building. I’m not terribly creative so following a set of instructions and seeing things come together appeals to me more than free building. Andy did build this, we checked Right, that's enough of that, everyone back to work! How do you spend your spare time? Let us know below!
  23. What is the one thing you'd like to do in life, but haven't got around to yet? This week, we get introspective and look at the things we'd love to do but haven't found the time to do yet. Brandon (Senior tech support and development) Travel more. I've traveled a little bit, but there are still many many places I'd like to visit. Something tells me I'll need to wait for some of the kids to get older and move out first however. Mark H (Tech support) Take a vacation in Hawaii, as that will complete a goal I set in my youth: Visit all 50 States of the US. Have vacationed, usually camping, in 49 of them so far. Marc S (Tech Support) I have a friend who I have spoken to in the US since I was about 13, through originally chatrooms, then ICQ, and these days Facebook. We have always said one day we will meet up, and thats something I certainly intend to do one day, but havent gotten around to it. Rhett (Cloud Support) A week in Phillip Island, Australia for the MotoGP Race. It's still on my todo list! Matt (Senior Developer) Write a book. Unlike my colleagues, I have no strong desire to travel. I've always wanted to write a book though. In my early teens I used to spend time in front of a mechanical typewriter (through choice, I'm not THAT old) and knocked out a few short stories. They were awful, obviously, but I do love the written word and have a few stories I'd like to get down. Andy (Senior tech support and development) Over the years I’ve started learning a few languages and know just enough French and Italian to be dangerous. I’ve never really focused on either though. I would definitely like to get around to becoming a proficient speaker in at least one other non native language. Mark W (Senior Developer) I'm going to go with everyone else and say more travel. Since I get to work from home I often get a niggling feeling that I could be doing this anywhere in the world rather than in my little office in Colchester. I've made some strides in that direction this year: I spent New Years Eve in Sydney, a somewhat interesting series of events led me to spend some time in Washington DC (but that's a story for another time), plus I visited Berlin and Krakow. 4 countries in one year isn't too bad I think, hopefully next year I can break it though! Jennifer (Designer) Visiting my Irish friend in the UK and attempting to go drink for drink with him to see what sort of shenanigans/trouble he gets me into. Daniel (Senior tech support and development) I want to sail around the world for at least one year (but preferable much longer) and visit as many countries as possible on this trip. I would really love to spent my whole retirement on a sailing ship cruising around the world till i get bankrupt! Stuart (Senior tech support and development) I think quite a few people may have a similar answer, but travelling more is something I would really love to do but haven't got to it yet. I've been to USA many times. There are many places on the list I'd like to go at some point like Peru (Machu Picchu), Austraila, Dubai, Indonesia, Bali... Endless list really. A more realistic answer would be to finish some of my project cars that have been sat in a barn for years. We'd love to hear what you would like to do, but don't have time for just yet. Let us know below!
  24. This week, the team have been discussing the one thing they can not live without. Some found this a hard question to answer. What is the one thing you cannot live without? A tricky question for some. Could you pick just one thing? Brandon (Senior tech support and development) My family is my saving grace and escape, and even though they're (collectively) the ones typically causing me the most work I wouldn't trade them for anything. Mark H (Tech support) I believe my choice would have to be "good coffee". I can deal with no phone, even deal with no credit card. But no coffee? The horror.... the horror. (2 points for naming the reference). Marc S (Tech Support) For me, no matter how much I like my computer, and look around for my phone before I do so much as make a coffee, it would have to be speakers. Not because I have a decent set of speakers, and don't even have to be my own speakers, but something that can play music. Whether I'm doing tickets, developing, cleaning, driving, sat in my office or sat in a bar, its the one thing I cant do without. Rhett (Cloud Support) The question really has two answers, On the tech side, it would be my iPhone, I can do anything from it you can think of really and my go to device for communication of all sorts. In life in general, that's an easy one, "My children, they are the center of my life, and really all that matters is I have them by my side!" Matt (Senior Developer) The one "thing" means I don't have to say family or kids! So I definitely think it has to be my MacBook Pro. I switched from a traditional desktop set-up earlier in the year and haven't looked back. I like being able to pick up my MacBook and carry on working while out and about. When I'm home, I plug it up to my two external monitors and it performs as well as any desktop. Jennifer (Designer) My iPhone. There is no worse thing than leaving my house without being able to check my chat programs or to be able to play Pokemon Go. Daniel (Senior tech support and development) The nerd in me can't live without alfredapp to automate all the things! ( check out their great forum https://www.alfredforum.com ) And the two hours a day of free time I get, I couldn't be without my son and bike. Stuart (Senior tech support and development) I pretty much couldn't be without my laptop, I use it for everything from Gaming, Films to Work. Is there one thing that you can't be without? Let us know below!
