  1. I've had this similar conversation dozens of times in the recent past when someone has taken an interest in what I do. Person: So what does Invision Community do? Me: We develop and sell an independent community platform. Person: Oh. Neat. I used to say the F word. But this used to cause some confusion. 'We develop and sell a forum system'. This used to elicit a response similar to this: "Forums? They're still going?" This line of thinking is quite prevalent among those who frequent Facebook, or use Facebook Groups to manage their micro communities. Even though they probably use forums regularly, or end up on forum topics when searching for things like "Why is my iPhone not charging", they don't realise this. I recently guested on a podcast, where we spoke about "Facebook or Forums?", and I received this comment. It appears, then, that the word "forums" has a lot of legacy connotations attached to it. It conjures up images of the past when Netscape Navigator was the world's favourite browser, and AOL was still mailing out CDs. That is all ancient history now, and we've moved with the times. The product we have now has roots in the product from the early 2000s but it is wildly different and much more capable. When you explain that you can segment discussions into separate areas (aka forums), and even set up independent micro-communities (clubs), you can see lightbulbs going off. "That's amazing! I had no idea! So you mean I don't have to have my community in a single stream struggling for attention among adverts?" Nope, there is another way. Why not try an independent community platform? I'd love to hear your thoughts. Do you avoid the F word too?
  2. Who doesn't like showing off their arms at parties? But what do you do when you're in a rush and are short on time? How do you get those pumped up biceps? Well, worry not. We've got your back. Here's a short time-saving workout that will get you an insane bicep pump: Firstly, your workout form should be on point, or else you would be just swinging your arms and won't be getting the potential results. Also, the tempo has to be very controlled. Keep the eccentric phase slower than concentric. © Thinkstock The Workout Rep Range for Working Sets: 12, 8, 6 Number of Working Sets: 3 Number of Warm Up Sets: 2 Rep Range for Warm Up Sets: 12 (Pick lighter weight compared to the working set of 12 rep max) Rest Period: 45 seconds-1 Minute The Split A. Target Muscles: Triceps A1: Close Grip Bench Press Pro Tip: Keep the grip shoulder width apart and slightly bend your forearms towards the chest when you bring the bar down. Give a one-second pause and then push it up while focusing on your triceps. A2: Lying Triceps Pulley Extention Pro Tip: Grip the pulley rod firmly at shoulder width apart. Bring it down slow and push it up without a jerk. Go for 2 drop sets after the completion of your last working set. A3: Reverse Grip Triceps Pulley Push Down Pro Tip: Give a one-second pause every time you push it down. © Picabay B. Target Muscles: Biceps B1: Biceps Barbell Curls Pro Tip: Do 2 warm-up sets here and during the working set, give a one-second pause at every concentric movement. Feel the contraction every time you curl. B2: Incline Dumbbell Curls Pro Tip: Set the bench at a 45-degree angle and when you take the starting position, make sure your head is resting back at the bench. Arms should be hanging down straight and do not take your elbows forward while you curl it up. B3: Hammer Dumbbell Curl Pro Tip: During the eccentric phase, let your arms get fully straight and while you curl it up, keep your elbows stable. Go for at least 3 drop sets here in your last working set. C. Target Muscle: Forearms C1: Farmer's Walk using dumbbells (3 rounds) Pro Tip: Grip the dumbbells from the centre. Increase the weight with every round and prefer picking a challenging weight. Do wear a belt for better core support in the heaviest set.

  3. If you're looking to start afresh with a new job, or life after a breakup, the first step should be an exciting makeover. A makeover not only changes the way you look but gives you a much-needed boost in your self-esteem so that you can exude confidence wherever you go. We're talking experimenting with your wardrobe: adding diverse colours to it. Adding accessories to your outfit to add extra detail and changing your haircut. Or getting a new perfume. Now, we understand that getting a change in haircut can be super stressful. From deciding what goes with your face shape and hair texture to save yourself from a major disaster. But don't you worry, here is a definite guide to interesting hairstyles that you should definitely try. The best part about these hairstyles is that they've been curated and mastered by Michel Baltzar, Lead Hairstylist and the Creative Director of Training & Education at Jean-Claude Biguine, India. 1. The GI JOE Look (a.k.a The Fading Buzz Cut) © Twitter An extremely popular style in the Latino culture, the fading buzz cut is characterized by tapered sides with a short crop of hair on top. “The best thing about this army inspired buzz cut is that it goes well with all kinds of face structures and especially works great with a well-groomed beard,” says Michel. The contouring if done right, can give you a strong, sharp and slick look. “It's also hassle-free and requires literally no styling or setting on a daily basis,” adds Michel, this look is fairly low maintenance if you don't count the fortnightly salon trips needed to retouch/trim the hair growth. (which is a great bargain for a sharp look like that) 2 The Crop Top © YouTube This style has been around for a long time in Europe, especially in England and is making a strong comeback this year around the world. Think Thomas Shelby from Peaky Blinders, that's exactly what we're talking about. “The crop top is a refined look and is understated yet fashionable. It involves a gradual fade on the side with focused short hair on the top-front,” says Michel. Being highly versatile, you can achieve both clean and messy looks with this cut. “Wax is ideally needed to set the hair in place as per your face structure,” adds Michel. 3 The Slick-Back Look © artofmanliness The classic look requires mid-length hair to give it a tamed appearance. It's a quick way to make your hair look stylish and offers many variations. “Using wax or gel is necessary to create this look, you can either direct it to the back or flip it to one side to give it a structured look,” says Michel. “This hairstyle blends well with an au naturel beard, a moustache or even a fresh clean-shaven look,” adds Michel. 4. The Mad Men Look © madmenfc A hairstyle inspired from the 'Mad Men', this elegant, clean look is a great choice for working professionals. This style is suitable for straight, fine hair but needs a little help of styling products. “You can cop this look by directing your top front hair to the side while following the outline of your head without creating much volume,” says Michel. 5 The BCBG: Bon Chic Bon Genre look © artofmanliness Inspired by Leonardo DiCaprio's legendary haircut in Titanic, this classic style of the 90s is back in force this year. “We love this messy-tousled style for its casual yet playful.
  4. PUBG Mobile and Fortnite have been sensational in 2018 and the craze is yet to fade. While these games undoubtedly redefined the capabilities of mobile gaming on a larger scale, they've also proven to be extremely resource intensive and often addictive. In the past, we've seen games like Temple Run and Pokemon Go become instant hits and the ones who started early ruled the leaderboards. We've compiled a list of games for iOS devices that you should be playing right now. These aren't exhaustive for the phone and also offer the right combination of fun, without the addiction! 1. Garena Free Fire - Winterland © Malavida It is a survival shooter game wherein the player is placed onto a remote island for ten minutes and pitted against 49 players, and the ultimate survivor wins. This game belongs to the infamous battle royale genre, but add a lot of different twists to it. You can freely choose your starting point and should aim to stay within the safe zone all the time. You can also create a squad of four players and pit against various other teams. How is this different from PUBG? The game is built to be short, so you don't end up spending almost an hour playing just one round. Get it here 2. Helix Jump © YouTube If you are in the mood for a cool and challenging reaction game, you should try Helix Jump. Your goal is to make the bouncing ball descend as much as possible as it jumps constantly on the same spot. In this game, you don't control the ball at all, but you get to turn the platform around to make the ball fall down through the gaps. How long will you last though? Get it here 3. Press Inc © Ruby Games Like seeing those satisfying videos on YouTube about various things getting crushed under a hydraulic press? This game intends to bring the same concept in a more interactive way. You can crush literally anything, starting with a cake to a nuclear fuel pod, anything! Why play the game? It is human to vent out stress by breaking things. Why go through actual physical damage when you can experience the same virtually? This game has actually helped many relieve stress in a non-lethal way, and besides, it's always fun to see a hydraulic press working! Get it here 4. Modern Combat 5 © Gameloft While it is common to see PC games getting mobile versions these days, it is really rare to see mobile games get made into a PC game, which is happening for Gameloft's Modern Combat 5. Modern Combat 5 is an intense FPS that puts you in control of one of 10 unique soldier classes, each packing their own unique arsenal, skills, and personality. You can completely customize your combat style by first choosing a class to play as, then unlock new skills as you level up, and equip advanced tactical suits and weapon attachments to fine-tune your capabilities. Get it here 5. Left To Survive © YouTube As the name suggests, you need to defend yourself from oncoming zombie attacks in a post-apocalyptic world. Build your encampment to defend yourself against enemy attacks and attack using rifles, grenades, shotguns, and anything in your arsenal. As you climb up the levels, new addition includes a helicopter for aerial attacks as well as challenging Zombie bosses. Another interesting aspect of the game is its intense PvP mode wherein you can test your skills against live players. Get it here 6. Need For Speed: No Limits © EA Need For Speed: No Limits is a free racing game that delivers short but intense races as you blast through an underground street racing circuit. You can heavily customize your car, and the branded cars actually include Ferrari, Lamborghini, McLaren, Pagani, Koenigsegg, Hennessey, and more. Just like most other Need for Speed games, you can play multiple channels like evading police, drifting, time trials, as well as online racing with friends. Being free to play, NFS: No Limits features a variety of in-game and premium currency systems, as well as a fuel system. Get it here 7. Egg Inc © AUX Brain While the Instagram egg has been the hottest word in town, this game is about a future in which eggs unlock the secrets of the universe. The very nature of the idle game allows players to do nothing and still be rewarded, occasionally pressing a button to increase the reward or the speed at which they are rewarded. Hatch chickens, build hen houses, hire drivers, and commission research to build the most advanced egg farm in the world. Basically, a modern day Farmville for eggs! Get it here
  5. Most young guys step into the world of fitness watching a famous bodybuilder who's been winning. Some look up to movie stars who went shirtless and swept the audience off their feet. Now, there's nothing wrong with drawing motivation from these personalities, but there's a problem and it's a pretty big one. The Problem is Trying To COPY Them As It Is People start following these famous personalities for nutritional advice, which is the dumbest thing one can do. You know what's even worse than that? Paying these bodybuilders for their diet plans! What most men do not understand is that 1. They do not have the genetic gifts that a pro bodybuilder has. 2. They do not and cannot work out for hours like a pro bodybuilder. 3. They do not use steroids and even if they do, they are nowhere near the dosages that pro bodybuilders inject. All of these things, especially the steroids help these bodybuilders get away with crazy amount of food, at least for a few years. A normal gym rat on the other hand won't get away with for a week. If you try and follow these “muscle gain” diets and you'll get fat and wreck your health. Keep following these diets and you'll start developing a host of problems like anabolic resistance where your ability to pack on muscle mass is seriously impaired due being in an unnecessary caloric surplus for a long period of time. What A Huge Amount Of Uncalculated Food Does © Pinterest It makes you insulin resistant to start with, then comes leptin resistance and when in full swing, it blows you up like a balloon where you even start losing the pump no matter how hard you work a muscle. Strength gains diminish drastically, inflammation is high, and you even start suffering from low libido. Cutting down to lower body fat levels also become very very difficult due to the above mentioned conditions. This is the reason why following the same diets as pro bodybuilders is a very bad idea if you are not using the same amount of exogenous assistance and training the way that they are. Don't Pay For Problems © Pinterest The sad reality is that many people end up buying diet plans from these bodybuilders and internet 'contest-prep' gurus and end up regretting it after they make a mess of their physique. The funny thing is that these Gurus claim that these diets are customized when in reality, they make diet templates and email the one that is the closest to a person's details. Doesn't even come close to being customised for a person's needs and preferences! What Should You Do? When it comes to advice about nutrition and more importantly supplementation, never take the word of a pro bodybuilder for it. These guys are athletes, not nutritionist. Nutrition is not their area of expertise and you would never take the advice of a guy about a field that he is not an expert in, would you? It gets even worse when it comes to supplement as with boom in the supplement industry, every half witted moron who has six pack abs is now a sponsored athlete and expecting a honest advice from a sponsored athlete is quite simply, stupid. Following them for motivation is well and fine but you need to remember that the plans that you buy off the bodybuilders are their plans which were given to them by their Gurus and which they have been following blindly for years. These are neither tailored for your need or preferences nor are scientifically sound. © Pinterest You'll need a lot of trial and error to figure out which eating pattern works best for you. Mindlessly following a diet which makes you stuff your face with bland chicken breast and rice every 3 hours until you puke is the stupidest thing you can do. When in reality, you only need a surplus of around 200-300 calories above your maintenance to build muscles effectively. Don't believe me? Then keep paying someone else for the copy pasted templates and see how far it takes you. Ignorance is expensive.

  7. If you plan on getting a moustache, the pornstar moustache probably is the best kind to start with because A, it's easy to grow and maintain unlike a full-on handlebar, and B, it doesn't look like you're trying too hard. Hrithik Roshan started off he year with sporting one, and we think he has never looked cooler. © Viral Bhayani © Viral Bhayani Now one might argue that Hrithik legit looks like a Greek God and can pull off anything, but why should that mean that you can't? Life is short, and sometimes a seemingly small grooming move can change it for you. Why we think so? Read on. Here are 3 solid reasons why every man should try getting a pornstar moustache, at least once in their life. 1. For the uninitiated, a pornstar moustache or a pornstache derived its name from the '80s, when male pornstars actually used to keep moustaches like these, and it was a rage among the ladies. Lesson to learn from history: Ladies dig moustaches, and they probably won't say it out loud. Get one and find out for yourself if it works! © Viral Bhayani 2. 2018 was all about beards. Now, we aren't saying that the beard is dead, because it never will, but variety is the spice of life, they say. If you have a beard, probably crop it short, and let the moustache grow out, for a swanky new look. If you prefer being clean shaven, why not step up your game and try getting a moustache? It can change everything about how you look. © Viral Bhayani 3. A pornstar moustache is easy to grow and maintain, and it is the only kind of facial hair experiment where not much is at stake. Don't like it? Shave it off or let your beard grow (it will take less than a week for a thick stubble to catch up in most cases). Plus, you can experiment with multiple aesthetics by altering the length of your stubble. It's a win-win, we say! © Viral Bhayani Still not convinced? Take a look at Hrithik. We rest our case.
  8. While Christmas is a time with family and close friends, it also brings in some form of romantic closure. It could be because cosying up with someone in the cold harsh winter is the ultimate thing to do, while the festivities are in order. So, in case you're looking for date idea to brighten up your holiday, we have some rather swanky ones, that are away from boring Christmas traditions. © Pinterest Here are 5 different ways to spend the Christmas holiday together: (1) Cook A Grand Meal Together Since Christmas is all about good food, why don't you two take that up as a chore and get to work? Look up some Christmas lunch recipes and whip up something you've never tried your hand at before. Trust me, cooking together as a couple is quite therapeutic and of course, brings you a lot closer. © Pinterest (2) Go About Town In Ugly Sweaters Ugly sweaters are to Christmas what boners are to mornings. They're uncomfortable but natural! So, make a thing of it and wear the ugliest one you have in your closet and venture out during the day. You could go for lunch, watch a movie, or just stay home and chill, as long as you're in your ugliest sweater! © Pinterest (3) Soak In The Sun Head out for a picnic in the sunny afternoon and get drunk on some wine. While drinking may be prohibited in public places, I am sure you can sip some wine in a chosen picnic spot and spend the afternoon just catching up with some sun. © Pinterest (4) Have Some Wild Christmas *** Yup, role-playing is bang on (pun intended) on Christmas. You can dress up as Santa, she can dress up as a naughty elf and you can spend your afternoon just playing out festive fantasies! It's a good day to stay in, lock your doors and lose inhibition! © Pinterest (5) Spend Your Evenings Making Cocktails That's a brilliant way to spend Christmas with your SO. Fish out some cocktail recipes from the internet and get all the mixers and tonics in place and churn out some mean cocktails. They can be very festive in nature and hit the spot just about right. Imagine the fun you'd have wasted in the kitchen whipping up some amazing cocktails together! © Pinterest You can obviously do some clichéd stuff too like sitting around in your pyjamas and Netflix and 'chilling' or you can head out for a fabulous Christmas lunch somewhere or have a regular date night. The point is, it's a joyous festival, so doing something different is just an add-on, as long as you have fun doing it! So this Christmas, make the most of it with your plus 1 and have a fabulous holiday!

  10. Just like every year, and every season, when Fashion Week rolls around, we are given some style goals, not only by the designers but also by the attendees of the shows. We saw some amazing, creative, and innovative looks when it came to the street style, and these looks are the ones that were making heads turn off stage at the Lotus Make-Up India Fashion Week (LMIFW). We've decoded our favourite looks to tell you exactly what you need to get the India Fashion Week street style right. So, here are the 7 essentials we loved from the India Fashion week street style over the last few days: 1. White Shirt Redux © Tarun Chawla White tee-shirts and shirts have been around for forever, and they have been an essential part of every guy's wardrobe. But that doesn't mean there is only one way to do it. So give your basic white shirt a makeover, and embrace prints, embellishments, and even DIY upgrades of this closet essential. We recommend this subtle floral print shirt, if you aren't ready for a full redux © Amazon MRP: Rs 1,259 Buy it here 2. Stripes Aren't Going Anywhere © Tarun Chawla Stripes had been done, dusted, and put away in the farthest reaches of our wardrobes for quite a few years, especially for all the men out there. Stripes were that boring print that every guy with some imagination had put away (and for good reason), until this classic trend made a comeback last season. And now, stripes are everywhere, and on everything. From a shirt to pants, to a blazer, stripes will see you through, and in style. We recommend this striped navy blazer © Amazon MRP: Rs 2,413 Buy it here 3. Reinvent The Kurta © Tarun Chawla It is the festive season after all, and it will be incomplete without the perfect kurta to add just enough of a traditional touch to your look. We saw some really amazing desi inspired street style at India Fashion Week, and it is definitely time to get out the nice starched kurtas your mum always loved. We recommend this asymmetrical cotton kurta © Amazon MRP: Rs 699 Buy it here 4. Don't Ditch The Half Sleeves Yet © Tarun Chawla Most guys have probably been told that a half-sleeved shirt is unflattering, and it's simple, easier, and more stylish to just don a full-sleeved shirt. That is perhaps not completely untrue, half sleeved shirts are hard to pull off, most often than not because they don't fit properly, or have no personality. But a well-tailored, or well-fitting half sleeved shirt can actually make for a very good casual style staple. You can also go for interesting prints to amp up the style a bit more. We recommend this printed half sleeve from M&S © Amazon MRP: Rs 1,372 Buy it here 5. Embrace The Bold Prints © Tarun Chawla Prints are really taking over, and in the last few seasons, they have kind of become their own category. And if you can find a good print, one that captures your vibe, don't forget to experiment with it a bit. Embrace bold prints, by pairing them with subtle pieces and accessories to create a fun and vibrant look. We recommend this navy printed shirt to give off the right vibe © Amazon MRP: Rs 1,149 Buy it here 6. Frame It Well © Tarun Chawla Classic sunglasses will always be a fashion favourite, but it's time to step out of the box a little bit when it comes to frames. Don't just pick between a pair of aviators or wayfarers. Fun frames, like ovals, round frames are really in, and they actually do look good on a lot of people. So, break away from that myth, and try on a few different styled sunglasses. If you are still unconvinced, then simply get yourself a pair of tinted sunglasses, and rock a nice casual outfit with the least effort. We recommend these tinted metal frame sunglasses © Amazon MRP: Rs 666 Buy it here 7. Backpacks Aren't The Only Option © Tarun Chawla We all watched that FRIENDS episode where Joey simply would not let go of a 'man bag', and everyone else wanted him to. Thankfully, gendering the most basic accessories is something that we left in the 2000s. So when you want to get a bag, keep in mind that backpacks aren't the only option. Feel free to experiment with different styles, from manila style folder bags to messenger bags, laptop bags, or a khadi over-sized tote.

Combat Boots Aren't Only For Punk Kids © Tarun Chawla Summer is behind us now (almost) so it means we can finally wear things other than sandals, and slip-ons, with comfort and ease. And one footwear you must consider are combat boots. In spite much of what pop culture might have us believe, they aren't just for punk bands and actually make for a pretty good accessory. They look good with skinny jeans, cut-offs, flared pants, even ethnic wear, if done right.

  11. When it comes to setting trends, Bollywood is generally good at both making it and breaking it. But in some instances, Bollywood simply follows them as well. Let us understand whether we could call Bollywood a trend setter or a trend follower or both. Speaking of setting trends, Bollywood has always been the front-runner in the Indian entertainment industry when it comes to fashion and has given a huge impetus to the fashion industry. It surely knows how to up the style statement in every sphere – films, international red carpet appearances, fashion shows or brand endorsements. © Instagram Whether it is Manish Malhotra's fashion shows or Sabyasachi Mukherjee's creation during the Virushka wedding or other B-town celebrities, they definitely know how to make heads turn. Making international appearances, the leading ladies of Bollywood have grabbed a lot of eyeballs by walking down the international red carpet every year and by featuring on the covers of glamorous glossy magazine worldwide. Be it Aishwarya Rai Bachchan at the Cannes Film Festival or Priyanka Chopra and Deepika Padukone at the Met Gala; these B-town beauties have always kept the paparazzi on their toes. © Instagram From press conferences to film premieres, high-profile weddings to airport appearances, Bollywood never stays out of style and has become a fashion icon for the most part of the Indian population. With multiple clothing and grooming product endorsements, Bollywood has always raised the style quotient for many Indians. This is quite evident from the huge pay cheques they take home every year. Now, speaking of following trends, Bollywood has been following the footsteps of Hollywood in churning out the same old content in the form of remakes and sequels besides biopics. Also, with the new trend of remixing songs from the late 80s and 90s into present Bollywood films, Bollywood is just copying itself. © Twitter Bollywood has been following the same old trend of film promotions by reaching out to reality shows and guest appearances in TV soaps. Furthermore, it still relies heavily on local language films to bring mass audiences to the theatres. What do you think – is Bollywood good at setting trends or following them?
