  1. The Time's list of Most Influential People)is out and obviously, there are a few Indians who're making the country proud by being among so many incredible people from all over the world. Last year, Deepika Padukone, Virat Kohli, Ola co-founder Bhavish Aggarwal, and Microsoft's Indian-born CEO Satya Nadella were named in the list and it was great to see so. This year, Mukesh Ambani and lawyers Arundhati Katju and Menaka Guruswamy, who quashed Section 377, have made it to the list. Along with them, Indian-American comedian and TV host Hasan Minhaj is also part of the 100 Most Influential People. Anand Mahindra took charge of writing about Mukesh Ambani) and had nothing but praises for the business tycoon. He talked about Dhirubhai Ambani, Jio, and how Mukesh Ambani did keep all the promises he made. He said, “Mukesh Ambani's father Dhirubhai was a visionary in Indian business, whose Reliance Industries conglomerate pioneered ways of targeting global scale. But Ambani's vision is now even more ambitious than that of the father whose blessings he unfailingly invokes at the launch of each initiative. The scale of his Reliance Jio mobile-data network, which has already connected over 280 million people in India with low-cost 4G, is impressive by any standard. But what is truly jaw-dropping is the way it will allow Reliance to potentially dominate a staggering array of new businesses. When its enormous retail division is married to the Jio network for e-commerce, it will give Amazon a run for its money. When the media entities Ambani owns begin leveraging Jio, he could create India's default entertainment destination. The mind boggles at the possibilities.” Lastly, he said, “Back in 2003, Ambani promised Indians in a well-known advertising tagline that his company would “put the world in the palm of your hand.” It won't be long before he delivers on that promise.” Coming to Arundhati Katju and Menaka Guruswamy, the badass lawyers responsible for the decriminalisation of homosexuality and quashing 157-year-old Section 377 of the Indian Penal Code. Writing about them and praising them was none other than Priyanka Chopra. She said, “'I am what I am so take me as I am,' said the Chief Justice of India as the Supreme Court struck down Section 377 of the Indian Penal Code in a unanimous vote. An outdated legacy of the British colonization of India, Section 377 rendered all sexual activities “against the order of nature” punishable by law. This landmark judgment, overturning a 157-year-old law, was the outcome of a long-term campaign orchestrated by two amazing public-interest litigators, Arundhati Katju and Menaka Guruswamy. The fight has been hard. The LGBTQ+ community has battled on both legal and social fronts for decades-—for their fundamental rights, for privacy, for dignity, for safety and for love.” She went on, “Armed with a well-planned strategy that went beyond their well-researched legal arguments, Arundhati and Menaka became beacons of hope for the Indian LGBTQ+ community. Their perseverance and commitment led an entire community to a historic win by humanizing their struggles and giving them the freedom to love. As the Chief Justice said, “Constitutional morality cannot be martyred at the altar of social morality.” Arundhati and Menaka have helped take a giant step for LGBTQ rights in the world's largest democracy. In their committed fight for justice, they have shown us that we as a society must continue to make progress, even after laws are changed, and that we must make an effort to understand, accept and love. It is who we are as people.
  2. Over the years, Indian cricket fans took a special liking towards MS Dhoni calling the shots on the field. And, why not. Under his leadership, the Indian cricket team scaled new heights (needless to mention the World T20 triumph in 2007 and World Cup title win in 2011). But, then, came a change - one that brought a more expressive and aggressive leader to the fore. Virat Kohli took over the reins as India's new captain and his never-say-die attitude created a new environment in the dressing room. But, despite being the captain, Kohli doesn't shy away from seeking out Dhoni on the field. Whether it's about placing the fielders in the right positions, taking DRS calls or even giving advice to the bowlers, Dhoni has pretty much been the unofficial captain whose experience and know-how of the game is being wisely used by his successor Kohli. Such has been Dhoni's judgement that not only Kohli but Rohit Sharma - who has often been seen leading the Indian side as stand-in captain - also looks up to the former Indian captain for advice. © AP But, on 5th March, the Indian cricket fans witnessed a rare moment of magic when all these three captains combined their acumen to eke out a thrilling eight-run win over Australia at the Vidarbha Cricket stadium in Nagpur. Defending a below-par total of 250 runs was always going to be difficult in the modern-day setup. And, India never looked in complete control of the match against the Aussies. As the match reached its climax, Kohli was contemplating the idea of using Vijay Shankar for the 46th over. But, a brief discussion with Rohit and Dhoni saw him changing his decision as he gave the ball to Jasprit Bumrah. "I was thinking of using Vijay in the 46th over, but I spoke to Rohit and MS, and they said, let's stick with Shami and Bumrah, and if they get some wickets we're on top, and that's exactly what happened," Kohli revealed after the game. © AP The decision bore fruit immediately as Bumrah dismissed Nathan Coulter-Nile and Pat Cummins in the 46th over to put pressure on dangerous-looking Marcus Stoinis. The seesaw battle between the two sides eventually boiled down to 11 runs off the final six deliveries. The situation looked tailor-made for death-overs specialist Bumrah, but he had already bowled his quota of 10 overs. And, that's when Kohli pulled another ace in the pack following yet another crucial discussion with Rohit and Dhoni. "We had a discussion on whom to give the final bowler. We had a thought that if a spinner's delivery comes in the radar, then it will be easier to step out and hit it for a six. There was reverse swing on offer for a fast bowler. So, I was hoping that Vijay would be able to reverse swing a bit," Kohli said. "If he bowls in the right areas, the batsman might go for a swing and miss, which happened on the first ball. And then it reversed a bit on the final ball, and we won. So we were hoping he could exploit the swing on offer. 11 runs were needed in the final over, so I knew it could be easier for Vijay. Because then the batsman had to go for a big hit. And they just had two wickets left," he added. © AP It was a battle of nerves as the Indian skipper tossed the ball to Shankar, who had earlier aided his team with a gem of an innings. The first delivery of the over saw Stoinis getting trapped in front of the stumps and even a review couldn't save him. The second ball allowed Adam Zampa to score two runs. And, the third delivery - a perfect yorker - resulted in another wicket and dashed Australia's hopes. "I was ready to bowl that over. Only if I do it will people know I can. It was just about being mentally clear, not be crowded mentally. Wanted to hit the hard lengths because it was reversing a bit, and I told myself to bowl at the stumps. I think when you play for the country you have to be ready to do whatever the team needs. I keep telling myself to work on all aspects of the game, and when the opportunity comes, be ready to grab it. I thought I was timing the ball well, rotating the strike in the middle overs. I was confident of doing that and it was a good partnership," Shankar said. © AP` Kohli, too, heaped praise on Shankar and his contribution in India's 500th ODI win. But, the sight of three important members of the side coming together and sharing their experiences and tactics is what stands out in India's triumph. The likes of Dhoni, Kohli and Rohit will be key for India's chances in the ICC World Cup in England & Wales, not just in their assigned roles, but also in making crucial decisions for the team. "Vijay kept it stump-to-stump, kept it simple, and it worked. It's always nice to speak to Rohit, he's the vice-captain, MS has been around for so long, and you go and speak to the bowler as well. Invariably they're all on the same page. Bumrah is a champion, two wickets in an over, just turned the game, happy to have him in our team. Just coming through these kinds of games gives us confidence. It's important to look ugly at times, and come through and win. We might get these low-scoring games in the World Cup as well," Kohli concluded.
  3. The Marvel universe is just that, a pure marvel. It boasts of a following that's no less religious about its super teams and superheroes, than the ones who believe in the existence of a higher order placed within holy shrines. An array of captivating movies and stunning characters have taken birth on-screen under the Marvel Studios banner over the years. From the 'X-Men' to 'Fantastic Four' and 'Spiderman' to 'Deadpool', Marvel universe's oeuvre is packed with the best of the best that there are in the arena. © Marvel Studios Yet, regardless of the marvellous stories, and powerful characters that have made their way to the silver screen over the years, with over close to 35 Oscar nominations to its credit, none of them actually came close to take the gilded dude home. However, Marvel's bad luck with Oscars seems to have come to an end as 'Black Panther' won an Oscar for the Best Costume Design in a Motion Picture. 'Black Panther' had earned seven Oscar nominations in the Academy Awards 2019, of which designer Ruth Carter's costume designs for the film brought home the gold! Not just that, Carter also became the first black woman to ever win under the Costume Design category. In her acceptance speech, Carter said, “ It's been my life's honor to create costumes. Thank you to the Academy. Thank you for honouring African royalty and the empowered way women can look and lead on screen.” Apart from costume design, 'Black Panther' also won an Oscar for Best Production Design in a Motion Picture. Production designer Hannah Beachler also happens to be the first black artist to not only win under this category but also get nominated in the category in the last 90 years. Hannah Beachler to @laraspencer after becoming 1st African-American to win #Oscar in production design: "I want all the young women of color...to be able to now stand on my shoulders." Backstage #Oscars moments presented by @Cadillac. https://t.co/VY7QZnkOdq #KeepRising pic.twitter.com/tGxY3OFdUY — Good Morning America (@GMA) February 25, 2019 But if you thought that was it, you're wrong. It seems 'Black Panther' was on a mission to make up for all of Marvel's lost chances, and went on to bag an Oscar for Best Score in Motion Picture, which was accepted by composer Ludwig Goransson. It's been a good day for the cast and crew of 'Black Panther' and the rest of us Marvel fanatics. Wakanda Forever!
  4. Indians are not new to the coffee experience, even when a steaming pan of chai remains a common sight at the tea stalls we spot in every nukkad in town. Yet, the narrative around coffee has undergone major developments in the last few years, as a result of which the appreciation for this darkened gold has made its way beyond the southern borders of the country, where it has been ruling over the hearts of people for the longest time. One of the key game changers in bringing about this notable change in how Indians enjoy their coffee is courtesy to to the makers of 'Sleepy Owl', a specially brewed, gourmet coffee brand that was co-founded by Arman Sood, Ashwajeet Singh, and Ajai Thandi in 2016. © Facebook Before the trio introduced Indian coffee drinkers to the rich and novel taste of cold brew coffee, co-founder Arman by his own admission said that, “up until law school he didn't even know coffee was a bean, that had to be roasted, then ground and brewed.” So we wonder how these three young men came across the gold mine of taste and the high of caffeine discreetly guarded by a select few who had discovered this beauty. Ajai's stint at JP Morgan in New York, stirred his love for coffee for the first time, and in the time he ended up spending there, the love turned into a solid affair. So of course he was more than interested when Ashwadeep show the slightest interest in introducing cold-brewed coffee to people back home. Soon Arman joined the dua, and together the kick started 'Sleepy Owl'. © MensXP So from the very beginning the trio had a very simple agenda, “we wanted Indians to have a fantastic coffee experience, but we wanted to bring it to them in a convenient way for them to enjoy it. So that's what Sleepy Owl does - we make very convenient coffee products,” Arman tells MensXP. 'Sleepy Owl' became a 'corporate-household name' when it came to great tasting coffee which could be freshly delivered to their work desks. The bag-in-box format of 'Sleepy Owl' played a huge part in this, its convenience and quirky packing only adding to the brand's offerings. © Facebook But thankfully, even with his academic backgrounds in law, Arman's family was more than supportive of his decision to transition from law to entrepreneurship. But there is one element that makes the co-founders' and Sleepy Owl's journey all the more special, and it's the fact that Sleepy Owl sources its coffee from within the Indian subcontinent. Proud of this fact, Arman tells MensXP that, “being a startup in India, we wanted to be rooted in the spirit of make in India. With India being the 4th largest coffee exporter in the world, we had to go with its fantastic Arabica coffee. We consistently source 100% of our Arabica coffee from Indian farms. © MensXP The makers of Sleepy Owl work with an aim to create delightful customer experience, yet the initial challenge of getting into retail stores did pose a hurdle. The brand decided to make use of social media popularity and built the hype around the brand online first, and followed it up with customer feedback. So once they had taken care of that along with the daily struggle of roasting, grinding and brewing coffee for that perfect blend, they launched on 16th June, 2016. What started in Ashwajeet's home kitchen in Dwarka, soon moved out to a larger facility in South Delhi, and today they are available in 120 stores in Delhi NCR. But that is just not where they want to draw the line. With the projection that coffee industry will be a 5 billion dollar industry by 2020, Sleepy Owl wants to have a very big portion of that pie. © MensXP So for Arman, every budding entrepreneur must keep this in mind that, “entrepreneurship is like jumping off the cliff without a parachute and building it along the way.” But he also adds that don't listen to the naysayers no matter what they say.
  5. You must have seen bodybuilders spending hours in the gym and you might think, “I do not have the time to be in the gym 4 hours a day. Does this mean I cannot gain muscle?” The short answer is NO. You can still very much gain muscle. Spending 3-4 hours in the gym is not realistic for people with regular 9-5 jobs. Here are 3 training methods which can help you gain more muscle in less time. 1. Supersets Supersets are done with pairing opposite muscles back-to-back without resting between two muscle groups. Let's say you have an arm day, so when you train your bicep muscle, the opposite muscle triceps are resting. Perform any variation of biceps for one set and then go perform a variation of triceps without giving rest. This enables you to perform quality volume in less time. Supersets can be done on compound movements but it would be ideal if one compound lift is combined with a single joint movement. Example - Superset between bench press and cable rows. © MensXP 2. Drop Sets A simple technique where you perform a set of any exercise single joint exercise variation to failure or just short to failure. Then drop some weight and continue for more reps with reduced poundage and no rest between sets. Eg - Barbell curls: Set 1- 20kg for 10 reps, drop the weight 10-15% do another 10 reps, drop the weight 10-15% and do another 10 reps till your planned sets are done. Drop sets should be done on single joint movements and not on compound movements as it's not safe due to its method protocol © MensXP 3. Rest-Pause Sets These are modern intensity techniques in which you can increase your muscle activation and training volume in a short amount of time. Plus, you get a magnificent pump. Rest-pause sets are performed by completing a normal set of exercise to concentric failure. This is when you physically cannot do another rep with decent technique. Then you rest for 15 seconds and do another set to failure with the same weight. Then you rest 15 seconds and repeat the process as many times as you desire. Rest-pause training activates all the muscle fibres in the first set, so every rep thereafter is maximally effective. Rest-pause training should be done on single joint movements like side raises, bicep curls, etc So, the next time you think you need to spend 4 hours a day in the gym or think your workout is not going to help you, give these techniques a spin and finish an effective workout in a shorter amount of time.

  6. Imagine a condom that changes colours when it comes in contact with an STI (Sexually Transmitted Infection). Yes, you read that right, just like a chameleon. Not only does it protect you from getting the said infection, but also gives a great heads up in advance. Three kids, Musaz Nawaz (13), Daanyaal Ali (14) and Chirag Shah (14) from London's Isaac Newton Academy wanted to tackle these high rates of STIs. For the annual TeenTech Awards in London which aims to inspire 11- to-16-year olds to realize their true potential in a STEM workplace, they presented the S.T.EYE condom. The S.T.EYE, in concept, will have molecules in the rubber-surface that'll glow when it comes in contact with different pathogens. The condom would say, glow green for chlamydia, yellow for herpes, purple for human papillomavirus (HPV) and blue for syphilis. Yes, I know, 'chameleon condoms' don't sound sexy at all, because who wants to put *** and a chameleon in the same sentence? Gross. But trust me, this particular chameleon is not gross and it'll save your life. Surely, you might have to have an awkward conversation if the condom changes colour. But, hey it's better than getting affected by an STI. “We created the S.T.EYE as a new way for STI detection to help the future of the next generation,” the kids told a leading publication. “We wanted to make something that made detecting harmful STIs safer than ever before, so that people can take immediate action in the privacy of their own homes without the often-scary procedures at the doctors.” The great idea won them the first position in the U.K.'s TeenTech Awards, and reportedly they have already been approached by condom companies. So, expect chameleon condoms soon in the market. The idea, of course, is not without loopholes. Like what if the condom comes in contact with two or more STIs and if both partners can be detected or just one. However, it's safe to assume that with the assistance of STEM labs they can work out the nitty-gritty.
  7. This year, we saw a lot of brands coming up with a sliding design. The addition of moving parts has never been a bright idea for a portable device like a mobile phone, but companies still went ahead and added sliding camera modules to eliminate the notch. The elimination of the notch meant a better screen-to-body ratio, and we gotta say, the automatic pop-up camera did look cool. Vivo was among the first few to come up with a sliding camera phone, and the NEX was one of them. Now, the brand is back with the successor of the phone, and the idea of a sliding camera module has been completely eliminated. We expected the successor to be called NEX 2 but instead, it has been dubbed the Vivo Nex Dual Display Edition. © Vivo Now, Vivo wants to try something new and has added a huge display on the back of the phone a well. While we've seen a similar concept onboard the Russian Yotaphone, the NEX stands apart thanks to its 3D TOF stereo camera. The front has a 6.39-inch bezel-less display while the rear has a 5.49-inch screen and both have an AMOLED panel and Full HD resolution. As expected of a flagship device, the Vivo NEX Dual is powered by a Snapdragon 845 chipset and will be available in 10GB of RAM coupled with 128GB of non-expandable storage. © YouTube/Engadget The back has some space on the top where the camera module, consisting of a 12-megapixel primary sensor backed with a 2-megapixel secondary lens, is located. A "Lunar Ring" on the back of the device is functional as well and acts as a soft flash for low-light selfie shots. The ring also changes colour to signify app notifications. Another unique addition to the phone is a time of flight (TOF) 3D module. It maps objects by firing pulses of light and then measuring the time taken for that light to return, which will allow for accurately modeling your face for more secure facial recognition, as well as for personalized beautification. © Vivo The phone runs on Funtouch OS 4.5 that's based on the latest Android 9 Pie. The phone is also equipped with an in-display fingerprint reader and the phone is expected to go on sale in various regions soon. In China, it is priced at CNY 4,998 (Rs 52,000).
  8. Every year the same joke comes back, with a few modifications of course, when Apple releases any new product and this time obviously wasn't any different. In case you have been living under a rock, Apple has released three new iPhones – iPhone Xs, iPhone Xs Max, and iPhone Xr. From so much confusion about the pronunciation of the names to making our favourite kidney jokes, people on Twitter did not disappoint. Since almost all of us can't afford to upgrade every time there's a new model, we can just upgrade our jokes and make everyone laugh and all of us can unite in being poor by Apple's standards. Coming back to the pronunciation, honestly is it “excess” or “tennis”? I don't think any of the options is the better one, tbh. So much confusion. Customer: I would like to buy an iPhone tens max. Max: How many iPhones tens do you want? C: No, I want a ten s max. Max: We don't sell tennis equipment here, you'll need to go to the Sports Authority. C: No, I don't want tennis I want a TEN S MAX! Max: Third base. — Michael Moore (@Kiey) September 12, 2018 It's a match to see who can actually afford it.

  9. Supplements are the bread and butter of many companies promising magical and overnight results to you. They promise to make you leaner by selling their fat loss pills to you and undo the years of fat gain in a matter of a couple of weeks. They also promise to make you jacked and muscular in 21 days if you pop their magic pill. Something along the lines of how Captain America emerged all beefed up from the pod after a supposed treatment. There's already a piece written on the 'ONLY' supplements you will ever need. In this piece, I will cover the three most sold 'Muscle building' supplements and why they are a waste of money. 1. Branched-Chain Amino Acids © Pixabay Branched-chain amino acids or BCAAs are considered to be the holy grail of recovery and muscle building. You will see this pink alien piss carried in huge gallon jugs by bodybuilders around the gym. What are BCAAs? They are 'essential' amino acids. Essential being the key word here as your body cannot produce them on its own. The main one in them known as Leucine is responsible for activating the muscle building pathway mTOR. Now the role of supplements is to supplement aka filling deficiencies in your diet. If you are eating enough protein, you do not need BCAAs as BCAAs occur in the food you eat to consume adequate protein. And in case you are not getting enough protein, it is better to supplement protein over BCAAs as it has been shown that BCAAs in isolation may have negative effects on muscle building. 2. HMB © YouTube HMB is a metabolite of the amino acid Leucine which claimed to reduce rates of muscle breakdown and also reduce soreness. When further researched, these claims fell flat on its face as it was seen that when compared to a placebo, HMB did not outperform by even the slightest margin in both untrained as well as athletic population. And other studies have also found that there is no statistically significant benefit of supplementing with HMB for both muscle growth or to prevent muscle soreness. 3. Glutamine © YouTube Glutamine, like BCAAs, has shown positive health benefits in terms of gut health. In this piece, we are talking about supplementation and muscle growth. Glutamine is a conditionally essential (it becomes essential to supplement in some cases) amino acid. For muscle building, studies have consistently shown glutamine to have ZERO benefits on strength gains, building or retaining lean mass, or reducing muscle catabolism in comparison to a placebo. And again, if you are eating adequate protein, glutamine does not provide any beneficial effects on muscle building. So if your goal is to build muscle, you might want to save your money and not buy these supplements. Instead, give these two articles a read: 1.

  21. Kaab Ibn Ujrah (radhi Allaahu anhu) relates that Rasulullah (peace be upon him) said Come near to the mimbar and we came near the mimbar. When He (peace be upon him) climbed the first step of the mimbar, He (peace be upon him) said “Aameen”, When He (peace be upon him) ascended the second step, He (peace be upon him) said “Aameen”, When He (peace be upon him) climbed the third step, He (peace be upon him) said “Aameen” When He (peace be upon him) came down, We said “O Rasool of Allah (peace be upon him), we have heard from you today something which we never heard before” He (peace be upon him) said When I climbed the first step, the angel Jibraeel (alaihi as-salam) appeared before me and said “Destruction to him who found the blessed month of Ramdhan and let it pass by without gaining forgiveness” upon that I said ‘Aameen’. When I climbed the second step, he said, “Destruction to him before whom thy name is taken and then he does not make Dua for Allah’s blessing on me (by saying, for example , Sallallaahu alaihi wa sallam).” I replied ‘Aameen’. When I climbed the third step, he said “Destruction unto him in whose lifetime his parents or either one of them reaches old age, and (through failure to serve them) he is not allowed to enter Jannah”. I said ‘Aameen’. (Hakim, Baihaqi) Note In this Hadith, it appears that Jibraeel (alaihi as-salam) gave expression to three curses, upon which Rasulullah (peace be upon him) said Aameen every time. In al-Durr al-Mansoor it is reported that Jibraeel (alaihi as-salam) advised Rasulullah (peace be upon him) to say Aameen. Being an angel of such high mark, Jibraeel ‘s giving these curses is sure to be accepted. May Allah (Subhanahu wa Taala) in His infinite mercy grant us His help and save us from these three dangers.
