  1. If you're a Marvel fan, the second you read this headline you probably thought, "hey. I'd do it for free"! But jokes apart, an American company called Cable TV is willing to pay $1000 to a die-hard Marvel nerd to basically binge watch 20 MCU movies. © Marvel It's not just hard cash that's going to come their way. The winner will also get lots of Marvel goodies like a Thanos mug encrusted with Infinity Stones, a Captain America popcorn popper amongst other super cool things. This is a promotional event for the upcoming movie 'Avengers: Endgame' and hence, they want someone with a high level of patience and will love to binge-watch this truckload of action more than anything else. The company is looking for a Marvel nerd who can over-enthusiastically live-tweet their entire experience and also have an outgoing personality. As a submission to participate in this contest, one needs to sum up in 200 words so as to why they are the ideal choice. Sadly, this is only valid for people living in America and over the age of 18, so well, there's a lot of FOMO attached here. Maybe you can help a friend living in the US to apply for it.
  2. At the beginning of 2019, it was announced that a biopic on our Prime Minister Narendra Modi is in the works. The news also confirmed that it would be actor Vivek Oberoi who would be seen essaying the titular character in the film, which has been titled 'PM Narendra Modi' and is being directed by Omung Kumar. View this post on Instagram Jai Hind ð®ð³ð We humbly ask for your prayers and blessings on this incredible journey. #AkhandBharat #PMNarendraModi A post shared by Vivek Oberoi (@vivekoberoi) on Jan 7, 2019 at 5:59am PST When the first look of the film was revealed in January, we saw Vivek Oberoi in a brand new avatar, bearing a close resemblance to PM Modi. However, now it has been further revealed that the actor shall be seen sporting nine different looks in the biopic, and the said looks seem pretty striking. Take a look at the looks here: Vivek Anand Oberoi's different looks in the biopic #PMNarendraModi... Directed by Omung Kumar... Produced by Sandip Ssingh, Suresh Oberoi and Anand Pandit... 12 April 2019 release. pic.twitter.com/lkIMrbBhJT — taran adarsh (@taran_adarsh) March 18, 2019 Shared by trade analyst Taran Adarsh on Twitter, the looks seem very different from one another, not only because of how they appear but also because of the curiosity they evoke regarding the context behind them. While we know that the biopic is said to narrate PM Modi's journey from his humble beginning to his rise as the Prime Minister of India, these looks have piqued the interest of the audiences. It has also been reported that the film will be released in 23 Indian languages! #RajendraGupta as Mr Narendra Modi's father and #YatinKaryekar as Lakshman Rao Inamdar in the film #PMNarendraModi Here is the look!@Sandip_Ssingh @Sureshoberoi @OmungKumar pic.twitter.com/vwMjTvEbqA — Komal Nahta (@KomalNahta) February 26, 2019 Last month, Komal Nahta had also shared that actors Rajendra Gupta and Yatin Karyekar have been roped in to portray the role of Modi's father and Lakshman Rao Inamdar respectively. Moreover, it is also being said that Boman Irani will be seen as Ratan Tata in the biopic. The trailer for 'PM Narendra Modi' is expected to release tomorrow, while the film will hit the theatres on April 12th.
  3. Have you ever felt frustrated when your girlfriend, during an argument, tells you that you are not a good boyfriend? Have you ever felt intense jealousy when she compares you to a fictional character and sighs, ruing the fact that why can't you be as romantic as them? If your answer to the above questions is “Yes”, then this post is just the one for you. Often, while rolling your eyes when something romantic happens on screen (with your girlfriend slyly pointing out how great a boyfriend the character is), you contemplate whether the term “good boyfriend” is a myth. © Pinterest The truth is that you can hardly compare to a fictional boyfriend; the charm, the intensity, the articulation, the good looks, everyone is not blessed with all of these. And even though your girlfriend is well aware of this fact, people can hope, can't they? (Don't act like you have never compared her to Hermione or RobinScherbatsky :P) © 21 Laps Entertainment/Netflix Oft-misunderstood and perpetually trying to achieve the perfection required by the girlfriend, being a boyfriend seems like quite a job, eh? :P But that doesn't mean that every character in fiction, or to be precise, every fictional boyfriend is the stuff of dreams and are faultless. They, like real people, make wrong choices, have fights, do the wrong thing. © Warner Bros. Television/Alloy Entertainment/ The CW In fact, all these years, through various series, novels and movies, we have seen a parade of superficially great fictional boyfriends who get the girl. And the girl seems happy with him. © NBC/ Warner Bros. Television/ Bright/Kauffman/Crane Productions After multiple viewings and thorough character analysis, this is the truth we arrive at: All this while, they have been masquerading as perfect boyfriends who can do no wrong while in reality, they are terrible human beings. © Elizabeth Meriwether Pictures/20th Century Fox Teevision So, the next time your girlfriend accuses you of being a bad boyfriend, you can tell her that there are still worse ones out there, and you have fictional characters to back you up. Here are 12 of the worst boyfriends in fiction: 1. Ted Mosby (How I Met Your Mother): © CBS/Bays and Thomas Productions/20th Century Fox Television Intense, dedicated, romantic. He is the most relatable guy on TV. Could there be anything wrong with Ted Mosby? Unfortunately, yes. Ted Mosby (Josh Radnor) is one of those people who keep whining because they are not in a relationship and when they are in a relationship, they whine about how it was better being single. He is that proverbial nice guy who makes you feel bad about yourself. Ted is the textbook definition of obsequious; he lets people walk all over him in a relationship just so they continue to be in one with him. No doubt that Ted loves with passion and no one else can love as Ted does, but he lets his emotions get the better of him. His ambition to be perfect always comes in the way of his love. Moreover, he tries to manipulate the person he is dating in his own way and throws a tantrum every time they don't concede. He is sweet, but he tries too hard to prove that he is good and better than the rest of the men on the planet. He is narcissistic in the worst possible way, which overshadow his good qualities. In his quest of becoming the “Best Boyfriend Ever,” he hardly thinks about others, in fact about the girl he is dating. His over the top gestures might seem romantic but he but it just comes across as annoying. The biggest problem is he knows what's wrong with him but conveniently chooses to ignore it. 2. Mr Big (*** and the City): © HBO Oh, where can I start on Mr Big (Chris Noth)? He is perhaps the modern equivalent of Mr Darcy, but a very abominable one. He is handsome, smart, rich and articulate. But all these have no value when you are a douchebag. After proclaiming to Carrie that he is no ready for a serious relationship, he ends up getting married to the next woman he runs into. He is commitment-phobic; he finds relationships stifling and he has no qualms in starting an affair with Carrie when he is married. He is unsure of his own feelings and never says what he means, tries to hide the fact that he is dating from other people because others may judge him for the person he's dating. He never seems to care for Carrie or any of his wives. He loves Carrie but is never sure about it and brings out the worst in her (leaving aside the fact that Carrie is terrible herself) and even after a long, long, long courtship leaves her at the altar. 3. Joe Goldberg (You): © Netflix/Berlanti Productions/Alloy Entertainment/Warner Bros. Television The personification of the “Nice Guy Syndrome”. The more you say about Joe (Penn Badgley, who seems to be cursed to play bad boyfriends, but he does it so well), the less it is. He may be the guy next door, but he is the type who doubles up as a murderer/stalker (talk about multi-tasking :P). He seems to take the notion of loving someone to death quite literally, that“someone” usually turning up dead. Yes, all of it is not his fault, Beck isn't completely innocent, but killing another person isn't justifiable. Doesn't really qualify him to be “Boyfriend of the Year”. Worse is he thinks himself to be the victim and justifies his murdering people with being a “protector”. He is a sociopath: he schemes all his movements to the tee and tries to show himself in the best light possible and can lie with élan. He sweet-talks, fakes the good boy act and gaslights with alarming ease. He is delusional; after only a chance meeting and superficial flirtation, he believes that Beck is meant for him and they met because of some plan, that she belongs to him, then tries to manipulate everything in order to achieve that, eventually even choosing violence on the way to get her. 4. Damon Salvatore (The Vampire Diaries): © Outerbanks Entertainment/ CBS/ Warner Bros. Television Sexy vampires cannot hold a candle to the suave and debonair Damon Salvatore (Ian Somerhalder). He is a different kind of bad boy: the supernatural bad boy; not only is he wicked but he also is a vampire (what more can you ask for, right? :P) This does not change the fact that Damon is not the perfect boyfriend material. He is selfish, possessive and fights dirty, is abusive (*drinks blood*) and has the worst possible track record in dating. To his credit, he is not afraid to declare it and that is where the problem is; he is too invested in his interests to care about his partner or anyone for that matter. He loves Elena with a fierce intensity which quickly transforms from compelling to dangerous. His desire for Elena stems from the fact that his brother also wants her; he fights for her, not because he loves her but because he hates to lose. To him, Elena is a prize to be won over, not an equal partner. That is hardly the foundation of a good relationship. 5. Don Draper (Mad Men): © Weiner Bros./Silvercup Studios/Lionsgate Television Don (Jon Hamm) is possibly the king of bad boyfriends, a poster child of what a fuckboy should be. He continually cheats on his wife (because why not, it's the '50s, right?), lies to her and treats her with as much respect as people give to a doormat. A true womanizer, one who would put Casanova to shame, he has a string of girlfriends whom he does not care about and are mostly for his sexual gratification. He tries to run away from responsibilities and can hardly be true to someone. He thinks that money solves all his problems and just spending it or throwing it around on people makes up for all his mistakes. To be true, he is a *** addict and a psychopath, with little regard for the feelings of the person he is involved with. Moreover, he is dominating (again the '50s) and can never let the woman have the upper hand or her opinion for that matter. His dangerous charm, good looks and devil-may-care attitude seem good on paper, but does it hold up in real life? He might be the best advertising mind out there (his only redeeming quality), but an advertisement about his skills as a boyfriend won't take off in the market anytime soon. 6. Jess Mariano (Gilmore Girls): © Warner Bros. Television/Dorothy Parker Drank Here Productions Ah, the messiah of bad boys! Brooding, hot and a lover of books makes Jess (Milo Ventimiglia) the perfect fictional boyfriend, but nothing can be further from the truth. Of all of Rory's boyfriends, he is the brashest and most uncouth. He is rude to everyone; his teen angst is misplaced, and his self-assuredness is annoying. His rebel without a cause attitude seems appealing only to Rory, who is blind to his emotional manipulation. He is perhaps the worst “bad boy” trope out there: exasperating the girl he is interested in until she gives in. He makes Rory break up with Dean, with his apparently nonchalant run-ins and woos her by showing how much they have in common, but once he makes her his girlfriend, he takes her for granted and starts ignoring her, doesn't call her back and becomes increasingly rude. To top it off, he tries to force her to have *** with him and gets angry when she declines and runs off to California. Though he seems to have finally turned a new leaf in the reboot, Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life. 7. Rhett Butler (Gone With The Wind): © Pinterest Well, we all know that Rhett (Clark Gable)“frankly doesn't give a damn”. And he means it. A roving eye, a cavalier attitude and a megalomaniacal nature hardly come together to make a good boyfriend. But he is glib, a smooth talker and says what he means and yes, that is very sexy. That's what makes him so desirable to Scarlett O'Hara. Then again, talking is so much easier than doing, isn't it? He is prejudiced, he belittles Scarlett throughout the novel/movie, demeans her (Scarlett isn't exactly the faultless heroine either) and worries only about himself. Just like his slippery talk, his qualities and personality are also “gone with the wind”. 8. Nate (The Devil Wears Prada): © Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer/Selznick International Pictures The most annoying character in “The Devil Wears Prada” has to be Nate (Adrian Grenier), Andy's seemingly perfect (with a slight clothing fetish), saintly (*ahem*) boyfriend. He sulks around the screen like a petulant 5-year-old whose candy has been snatched away. His tantrums are worse than Miranda Priestly, he can easily give her a run for her money in that department. He ridicules Andy every chance he gets; about her job, demeans her job, never supports her and masks it with a veil of fake concern for her. He keeps telling her that she has changed, like that is a bad thing, because she doesn't cater to his every need like she used to. He tries to make her feel bad for choosing her career over him though he has no problem in doing the same and is angry with her when she stands up for herself. He seems very sweet and encouraging but that's a façade for his insecure personality. 9. SteveHarrington (Stranger Things): © 20th Century Fox/Fox 2000 Pictures/Dune Entertainment Steve Harrington (Joe Kerry) is the best babysitter in all of Hawkins. Fashion expert par excellence. Dedicated mother hen to the Stranger Squad.Awesome big bro to Dustin. But as a boyfriend, he is a jerk. Though he does realize his mistake later on (sadly after Nancy has moved on), his abysmal treatment of Nancy (and Jonathan) in the first season makes one's blood boil. He is one of those entitled jocks who run around making others miserable. Also, when Barb dies, he is flippant about it and his lack of emotion is appalling. The indifference about it plays a major role in Steve and Nancy's break-up. He loves Nancy but he has an odd way of showing it; he pushes her to be cool and let down her inhibitions, but he also wants to control her. He wants Nancy to be more free about herself, loosen up, but forgets that she is a reserved person and they need time to open up. As of Season 2, he has redeemed himself as a person, but not as a boyfriend. Ah well, there's still the next season. 10. Ross (Friends): © Netflix/21 Laps Entertainment Ross “We were on a break!” Geller (David Schwimmer) is the epitome of the “Nice Guy Syndrome” (A well-natured cousin of Joe Goldberg in that way). He suffers from intense jealousy, can't seem to comprehend that his girlfriend can have a life which does not revolve around him. He hangs on for Rachel for 10 years, until she gives in. People might call it persuasive and romantic, I say it is borderline stalkerish and psychopathic. He tries to justify his atrocious behaviour by blaming the people around him and tries to prove himself right on a technicality. He does not trust his girlfriends, even though he is hardly perfect. He is extremely conflicted about the possibility of being wrong and thinks himself to be blameless. Touchy about his masculinity is just another feather in his boyfriend's cap. His goofy ways are supposed to be endearing but they don't come across as extremely childish and irksome (at least to me :P). Even when he is not in a relationship with Rachel, he keeps sabotaging her relationships and behaves abominably when he finds out that she is dating Joey. 11. John Willoughby (Sense and Sensibility): © NBC/ Warner Bros. Television/ Bright/Kauffman/Crane Productions John Willoughby (Greg Wise) is handsome, chivalrous, classy, eloquent and can make girls go weak in the knees. He can read poetry with dramatic intensity and gusto, he can be effectively charming and speaks with unnatural grace and economy. Granted everything, that doesn't change the truth that he is a flake; a spineless gold-digger who would rather be married to an heiress than to the supposed love of his life who is penniless. He leads Marianne on, takes her on wild horse-rides, is extremely romantic with her, makes her feel that he loves her but does not tell her the truth about himself. Instead, he breaks her heart and goes off to London and ceases communication. When they meet in London again, after Marianne's unsuccessful but relentless attempts to communicate with him, he is cold and acts aloof. The reason? He has been engaged to Miss Grey, who has a formidable fortune and tells her that there was nothing between them. Classic case of “literary fuckboy”: leading on for personal gain. Not only that, he impregnates Eliza, Colonel Brandon's adopted daughter, and runs off leaving her pregnant and helpless. Not so gallant after all! 12. Lucas Scott (One Tree Hill): © Warner Bros. Television/Tollin/Robbins Productions One word: Indecisive. A total and complete jerk! No doubts on this one, please. Lucas (Chad Michael Murray) is like a child with a shiny, new toy: He knows what he wants but doesn't want to work for it. Once he gets what he wants, he doesn't want it. He cheats on his girlfriend repeatedly; does so just before proposing to Lindsay and pulls the quintessential “sleeping with the best friend” when he is with Brooke. He knows that he wants Peyton, but when he finally ends up with her, he behaves in a weird way with her. He has no remorse and is selfish, he just needs what's good for him and does not care what happens to others. Moreover, he thinks that making a grandiose speech about how he loves someone is enough to make the other person forgive him. So, there you have it. Who's the worst according to you? Tell us in the comments!
  4. The entire nation cheered with pride when Indian Air Force (IAF) pilot Wing Commander Abhinandan Varthaman was released by his Pakistani captors to come back home and serve his country once again. From people in small villages to the Bollywood fraternity, every nook and cranny of the country was thrilled to welcome him back home, like a hero who'd just returned from war. © Twitter From people naming their newborns after him to some men aping his gunslinger moustache, everyone has been in awe of the brave pilot, whose presence of mind during his capture will always be remembered. Recently, some folks took to Twitter and raised notions about making a movie about him and also suggested that Ranveer Singh would be best suited to play him in the biopic! Fair enough, Ranveer with his rogue style and a definite moustache clash with Abhinandan can do apt justice to the role for sure. © Twitter While we're sure a movie will definitely surface on Abinandan's bravery, it's just a wait-and-watch situation as to when that happens. After all, we're eager to see who plays him. But for now, the audience seems pleased with Ranveer and here are some endearing tweets they've shared. @RanveerOfficial Why don't you try a Abhinandan style moustache. #AbhinandanMoustache — Pulkit Shah (@pulkitshahh) 3 March 2019 #SanjayLeelaBhansali to produce a film on Balakot airstrike.https://t.co/rJ1vOAQM6J — Filmfare (@filmfare) 4 March 2019 Now he'll cast @RanveerOfficial as Abhinandan — Mohammed Touqeer (@mohd_touqeer_) 5 March 2019 Ranveer Singh to Play "Abhinandan" in Movie Wo 56 Ghante! https://t.co/ZoaTB5z8ZB — sargamarora (@comsargamarora) 4 March 2019 You should enact Abhinandan when his Bio/ Pulwama attack movie will be made — Police (@snjay0) 3 March 2019 You missed one thing Ranveer singh to play the character of abhinandan varthman. — Pinkesh D Chawda (@ChawdaPinkesh) 4 March 2019 I propose that Ranveer Singh should play the role of #Abhinandan in the Bollywood movie about to be made - no one else can carry off that moustache. P.S.: And PLEASE! Not Salman Khan! — The Bad Doctor (@DOCTORATLARGE) 1 March 2019 Any guesses who would play Abhinandan- Ranveer Singh — Deepak Rastogi (@dpakrastogi) 5 March 2019 @RanveerOfficial You should totally inact Respectable WING COMMANDER #Abhinandan We as public will be inspired to see his journey through you! — Mini (@Mini76541361) 5 March 2019 Ranveer Singh as Abhinandan? Too Mooch! https://t.co/Kt01cjFsmf — Deep Halder (@daipayanhalder) 5 March 2019 While the grapevine does tell us that Sanjay Leela Bhansali is going to make a movie on the Balakot airstrikes and with so many people supporting Ranveer to play Abhinandan's role, we're sure Bhansali will definitely consider him.
  5. First dates can be really agonising. Meeting a stranger for food and drinks isn't exactly a comfortable situation to be in. From not disclosing TMI to keeping it chill, striking the balance can be really tricky. Then there's the question of how to dress for the date. Apart from grooming habits that your date can instantly notice to, an emergency pimple popping guide, here's some women answering the burning question of how they want men to be dressed on the first date. View this post on Instagram A post shared by KARTIK AARYAN (@kartikaaryan) on Feb 27, 2019 at 2:18am PST 1. "Love a guy who can pull off semi-formals outside of a work setting. A blazer can almost go with anything, if worn a well. And if a guy can pull off a blazer with jeans with a pair of boots, I'll be majorly impressed." -Anukriti Talukdar, 25-year-old Lawyer. View this post on Instagram A post shared by Vicky Kaushal (@vickykaushal09) on Feb 12, 2019 at 5:40am PST 2. "A guy who knows layering is a guy worth keeping. Seasons like the Winter can be really dull for a guy's wardrobe. If a guy can experiment and bring out the best of creativity to that effect, I'm sold." -Priyanka Sharma, a 27-year-old PR Associate. View this post on Instagram A post shared by Raj Kummar Rao (@rajkummar_rao) on Dec 26, 2018 at 7:43am PST 3. "Someone who is open to experimenting with cool fashion trends and keeping themselves suave is always impressive. A bum bag, or a cross body sling is super trendy and useful at the same time." -Raagini Sarkar, a 23-year-old Fashion Stylist. View this post on Instagram A post shared by Ishaan Khatter (@ishaan95) on Dec 16, 2018 at 10:35pm PST 4. "I really like a guy who can clean up well and wear polished formals to a date night. There is nothing hotter than a guy who carries himself well in well-ironed formals," -Sana Malhotra, a 28-year-old Consultant. View this post on Instagram A post shared by Shahid Kapoor (@shahidkapoor) on Nov 24, 2017 at 4:41am PST 5. "What's not to love about a guy who can pull off monochrome. Also, I'm a big fan of ethnic wear. A long kurta or a bandhgala are among the offbeat choices that I'll be hugely impressed by," -Vibhuti Kapoor, a 26-year-old Architect.
  6. Kartik Aaryan has always been at the forefront of the 'cool millennial style revolution'. Relaxed, oversized, and often meticulously layered - Kartik's outfits boast of the edgy aesthetic that modern street style is all about. The chirpy, bright colours sure do help, when it comes to the cheerful demeanour associated with his overall style (that his stylist The Vainglorious clearly has decoded, and now mastered). We particularly have always had an eye out for all the sweatshirts Kartik wears, as there is something inherently stylish and sophisticated about them that scream hypebeast. Here, we have shortlisted 5 sweatshirts we want to steal from his wardrobe. 1. The Beautiful Trauma sweatshirt from Faith Connexion View this post on Instagram A post shared by Priyanka & Kazim (@the.vainglorious) on Mar 1, 2019 at 12:30am PST We are absolutely in love with the versatile colour palette along with the edgy front. Date night to beer pong - wear it wherever! 2.

This classy black sweatshirt from IH NOM UH NIT View this post on Instagram A post shared by Priyanka & Kazim (@the.vainglorious) on Feb 17, 2019 at 10:01pm PST Everyone needs a basic black sweatshirt.

  7. MWC saw quite a few interesting and weird smartphones, however, the show was stolen by all the foldable smartphones that were announced. Samsung unveiled the Galaxy Fold at its Unpacked event, followed by a more practical foldable smartphone by Huawei called the 'Mate X'. As of now, foldable smartphones have been teased by various companies like Xiaomi, OPPO, LG, Motorola and others. Apple has considered making a foldable smartphone in the past and has also filed a patent that covers “Flexible Display Devices”, however, we have not seen anything from the Cupertino giant as of now. Even though Apple may just be the only manufacturer that has not flirted with a foldable prototype, it didn't stop Apple Co-Founder Steve Wozniak from wanting one. © LetsGoDigital Speaking to Bloomberg, Wozniak said that he really wants to get his hands on a foldable iPhone and wants Apple to be a leader in this segment of smartphones. “Apple has been a leader for quite a long time in a few areas such as Touch ID, (Face ID) and easy payment with the phone,” Wozniak said during the Bloomberg interview. “They're not the leader in areas like the folding phone, and that worries me because I really want a folding phone.” Apple is known to have surprises up its sleeve and we cannot be sure whether the company is already working on a foldable smartphone. Even though the Mate X and Galaxy Fold have been announced, the two smartphones are not yet ready for consumers. It's still quite expensive and is in the initial stage of development. Apple, on the other hand, is known to launch devices that just work and it may be too soon for the company to unveil its own foldable device. © LetsGoDigital Even if Apple does make a foldable iPhone, there's a good chance it may look like the image above. It's a render based on the patent filed by Apple and developed by LetsGoDigital. Do you want a foldable iPhone in the near future? Let us know in the comments. Source: Bloomberg
  8. Fashion is essentially subjective, of course, but there are some things that one should just stay a hundred miles away from - unless of course, they enjoy wallowing in bad taste. Men's fashion is becoming more and more inclusive every passing day, but that should never be the license for wearing 'the bad and the ugly'. In spite of all the subjectivity, trust us, there do exist some unforgivable fashion faux pas, that every man should steer clear of. Don't worry if it sounds too confusing, we're here to tell you what not to wear. We have listed out 6 things that men should never, ever wear. 1. Shiny shirts © FashionLeisure They were popular once upon a time, but we'll never understand why. No one can pull them off! Shiny shirts will make you look weird AF, even if you look like a Greek God. They look super cheap, extremely gaudy, and plain ugly. 2. Ill fitted, baggy jeans © Alibaba If you want to convert your Tinder right swipes to left swipes in real life, please go out on a date wearing these atrocities. Yes, comfortable and blah, but so are a pair of nice, crisp pair of linen trousers that fit you just right! Why would you want to look like a confused teen from the hood in a Gangsta movie who's had a trip or two to the juvie? 3. Socks with sandals © Getty Images We can't stress upon how harmful this one right here can be for your romantic/*** life. It, however, will work as a great contraceptive method because you will never be getting laid if you're seen in public wearing them. Go on, try it out. 4. Huge belt buckles © Democratic Underground You're not a cowboy (unless you actually are). But even if you are, why should you be a fashionably deprived one? Plus, it's not the '70s anymore and they should just be discarded. 5. Square toed shoes © ShoesLovetoknow Who can pull them off, honestly? Your feet would look 60 if you wear them. 6.

  9. Is there a better way of finding out what women want than asking them? No, there isn't. That's why we decided to ask women in 2019 what they want from men.
  10. While I agree that dating is hard in today's day and age, it's also necessary as a survival tool for the young generation today. That's because it's healthy and keeps the young people balanced and on their feet constantly. While dating has become the need of the hour, it's still circled as something only 'confident' men excel at. However, that's not entirely true. While you do need confidence to manoeuvre your dating game, you also need to be complete in order to look for another person. You can face nervousness while asking a girl out but what you need to remember is that the nervousness is just a solemn cover for making sure you don't ruin the game for yourself. In simpler words- it's okay to be nervous. © Twitter So, the next time you want to approach a girl and you think you lack the confidence to ask her out on a date, just remember these 3 simple things: (1) Let Her See You As The 'Nice Guy' Why don't we end the stereotype of 'nice guys finish last' once and for all? It's a give that women nowadays seek nice guys and not the usual chunk of 'bad boys' anymore. The sensitivity to be with someone who is kind and understanding is growing steadfastly and that's the side you need to show her. If you spot her at a bar or if she's someone you already know, it's time to show her your nice side. That doesn't mean put up a charade or show her a side where she ends up friend zoning you. It just means that you need to make her see you as someone she'd have difficulty finding, in today's and age. © Zee Studios Approach her with a conversation and find something of common interest to pick up on and start talking. Maybe have a deeper meaningful conversation and actually LISTEN to what she says. Not only will you come out as a good listener but also as a sensitive bloke. Just be the nice guy every woman wishes to find today. (2) Let Her See You As The Funny Guy Yes, agreed not everyone is funny but you can try appreciating good humour. I am not saying try your best to be humorous. Humour comes naturally, yes. But you can try and make her laugh the best to your ability. Humour always shows a very kind and soft side to someone. If you can muster up the courage to narrate a few jokes or make the conversation lighter with humour, you have her right then and there. If not, you can advocate some good humour and take her for some good comedy shows around town or a movie that's funny perhaps. Whatever you do, make sure you add the element of humour to it. © Pinterest (3) Let Her See You As The Chivalrous Guy They say chivalry is dead, but it shouldn't be. Chivalry is the mark of a man. If he's chivalrous, he's got it all. Chivalry includes everything- kindness, manners, etiquettes, compassion and being a gentleman. When we were growing up we often saw our fathers or men around show utmost chivalry. Be it opening doors or holding the chair back so a woman could sit. We don't see that anymore. Yes, women are capable of opening doors or paying the dinner bill but it's an aspect that gives women the additional strength and warmth they need, if and when a man is chivalrous. So, if you do go up to her, be your chivalrous best, to a point where if she sneezes, you hand her your handkerchief! Chivalry shouldn't die and if you gradually bring it back, you'll see the dating game change in your favour. © UTV motion picture So, if you have these three things sorted then you're good to go out and ask the girl you've been doting on, out. Just remember, pretence can only take you so far. So be your natural self and try and do your best. Your nervousness will fade away and you'll understand what women really want, clearly.
  11. It's that time of the year again where the city is decked up in pinks and reds, and while most people enjoy the 'love' displayed all over, some are significantly indifferent or not so savvy towards it. It's a choice really. Even for couples who'd just like to spend Valentine's Day without any cupid-induced festivities and treat the day just like any normal day. For single people, Valentine's Day can be a little rough or unremarkable. Either you feel bad about the fact that you don't have anyone to spend the day with or you're happy in your skin, feeling content with yourself, all the time. © Netflix Whatever it is, we have a rebellious remedy for the Val Day naysayers out there. The remedy is simple. Just drag yourself to a couch or your bed, alone or with a significant other and watch these 5 shows that are absolutely anti-candy hearts and sugary cupid and not at all Valentine friendly, and re-live a normal non-cheesy day: (1) The Umbrella Academy © Netflix Hollywood star Ellen Page and music legend Mary J Blige star in this hot new superhero series fresh out on Netflix.

  13. In an avalanche of political biopics this year, there is a new surprise entry which no one knew about. After 'The Accidenal Prime Minister' and 'Thackeray' creating a major buzz in the nation, the trailer for a biopic on Rahul Gandhi dropped today, completely unannounced. Before we even begin to dissect it, let's just have a look at it first. The trailer follows a young Rahul swimming while his grandmother Indira Gandhi looks upon him dotingly. It is established that he shares a very warm relationship with his grandmom and his father and the death of the PM affects him more than others. 'My Name Is Raga' Trailer Out: Rahul Gandhi's Biopic Unveils First Look #MyNameIsRaGa @RahulGandhi @INCIndia @WithPGV @rahulgandhi2020 @rupeshpaul @priyankac19 @BJP4India @AjayLalluINC @SaralPatel @Chiranjeev_INC https://t.co/jOavO0AOLD pic.twitter.com/erMQskqHap — News World India (@NewsWorldIN) February 10, 2019 The trailer then shows a caricature (if I may call it that) of ex PM Manmohan Singh and an agitated Modi Ji as well. We see the grown up leader form of Rahul Gandhi who ends up winning hearts of everyone. The trailer ends on a very vague note and while the acting and dialogue delivery is quite questionable, we wonder why couldn't the direction be a bit more serious? This looks more like a parody and that's exactly what social media is wondering about. Brace yourself, biopic on Rahul Gandhi is on its way. The trailer is terribly cheap, it's as poor as his political ability.. Such a third class making & what a director is chosen who has made legendary movies in the past. ðð #MyNameIsRaGa @RahulGandhi https://t.co/gUzml5VEe1 — Vikram Joshi (@vikramajoshi) February 9, 2019 Trailer starts with "tumne hume jeetna sikhaya hai"ð Is this movie made by @RahulGandhi haters to troll him under the pretense of a bio pic?ð#MyNameIsRaGa https://t.co/28x8JqR24d — Voice Noteswali Krutika ð¹ð (@certifiedKruti) February 9, 2019 People are wondering if this is some sort of an elaborate joke and if the movie is releasing on 1st April. When is it getting released 1st April 2019 it seemsðð https://t.co/OeKTyveCgM — RAKESH KUMAR SINGH (@Hanibals) February 10, 2019 Bahut ho ghatiya cast and dialogue delivery hai. Full paisa barbaad trailer and would be movie. Ye @RahulGandhi ko badnaam karne ki saazish hai. — तनà¥à¤®à¤¯ à¤à¥à¤¨ (@tanmaygoon) February 9, 2019 The man deserves better than this for sure. Let's just hope the movie is better than this trailer.
  14. The act of gifting can be a particularly difficult pain in the behind. Especially if you're someone who in spite of trying multiple times, cannot help but stare at failure over and over again. And damn, sitting in the month that celebrates Valentine's Day only makes the pressure worse, doesn't it? But don't fret! You can thank us later for giving you a lowdown on this go-to list about what to buy and what not to buy when picking a gift for your girlfriend or wife! And to make things easier for you, we will also tell you where to shop these gems from! So all disheartened little souls, to keep up with Valentine's Day, there's Flipkart that brings to you the FlipHeart Days, with great deals and discounts. Follow these recommendations to the T, and you'll surely be good to go: 1. If you want your girlfriend to really appreciate your choice, get her the latest book by her favourite author or the collection of their works! There's nothing more romantic than the sweet sound of your partner reading her favourite book out loud while you're chilling together. Dharma Productions 2. If your girlfriend loves Marvel movies, why not gift her something that has more longevity than comic books. Like a Groot Planter Flower Pot for her to keep on her office desk as a reminder of her love for Marvel and of course, you. Sahil Kedia/MensXP 3. Buying a pair of sunglasses for your girlfriend can be a risky business. With things like face-structure, nose-structure, frame, etc. to keep in mind, you might get that wrong. Why not buy her something that's completely tried and tested. Like a perfume that she loves to wear! You cannot go wrong with that. Dharma Productions 4. So, let's be honest... buying a piece of jewellery for your partner is risky to the max. You can never be sure whether they will like it or not and good morning, most jewellery items CANNOT be returned. So why not put your money in something that you're sure they'd love, like lipsticks? Think Wet 'n' Wild, Maybelline, Makeup Revolution etc. 5. Pamper your busy-bee girlfriend with a long bath on Valentine's Day, because doesn't she deserve that the most? Get essential oils, flowers, and candles, and decorate your bathroom to look like an in-house spa! Safe to say she would like it more than being taken out to a fancy restaurant for food and drinks! And quit worrying, guys! For each of these gifts, Flipkart has you covered. You can get all of these gifts and more during the FlipHeart Days from February 1st to February 14th. Flipkart has the widest selection across beauty, grooming, books, toys, chocolates, and home décor.

Or even if you're planning to be your own Valentine and shower yourself with some self-love, there's something for everyone! So go on and shop for those you love, and everything they love!
  15. Arguably one the biggest and most prestigious football clubs in the world, Arsenal is currently evolving under the structure of new coach Unai Emery, who replaced long-serving Arsene Wenger last year. The former Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) manager has struck a chord with the fans and continues to strive for the club's success. However, the recent times are proving to be really tough for the Gunners and their fans. Their chase to finish in the top four was dealt with a major blow after the likes of Hector Bellerin, Laurent Koscielny and Sokratis Papastathopoulos were recently injured. Moreover, their 3-1 defeat to Manchester United in the FA Cup on 26th January also dampened the mood in the Arsenal camp. But, just when you thought their troubles were over, the Gunners and their fans found a new one thanks to Esha Gupta - the Arsenal club ambassador. Instagram/@egupta The Bollywood actress, who earlier dated Bellerin, stirred up a storm after a Whatsapp conversation with her friend surfaced on social media. The social media was abuzz and football fans up in arms as a snapshot of her conversation compared Arsenal forward Alex Iwobi to a gorilla. Instagram/@egupta Following the Gunners' FA Cup loss to United, the 33-year-old shared a screenshot of her conversation with a friend on Instagram as one of her stories. "Solves our winger issues. I can't see that gorilla faced Iwobi running down the flank again. He's so bad ya," her friend wrote. To which, Esha replied: "Hahahahahaha...I honestly dunno why they don't bench him more". The former Miss India International winner deleted the post, but the fans were not impressed by the antics of their club ambassador. Following a lot of backlash on the social media, Esha issued an apology, but it was a tad too late to undo the damage. Guys m sorry you thought it was racist. Was bad on my part, being a sports lover. Wallah never meant it. Sorry guys forgive the stupidity ðð½ #gooner4life — Esha Gupta (@eshagupta2811) January 27, 2019 "Guys m sorry you thought it was racist. Was bad on my part, being a sports lover. Wallah never meant it. Sorry guys forgive the stupidity," her tweet read. It was us discussing our frustration during the game.sorry as I din realise it directed towards racism.laughed over the spur of the moment, which was the games result guys.been victim of racism myself before. But this is not something m proud of. It was a fault,sorry guys — Esha Gupta (@eshagupta2811) January 27, 2019 "It was us discussing our frustration during the game. sorry as I din realise it directed towards racism. laughed over the spur of the moment, which was the games result guys. been victim of racism myself before. But this is not something m proud of. It was a fault, sorry guys," she wrote in another tweet. But, Arsenal fans were in no mood to forgive as they slammed the actress for her "ignorance" and called her out for being a "racist". Your response is embarrassing! You state on one hand you've suffered racism yet on the other have no idea that you've made a racial slur! Your ignorance and arrogance of this whole situation is beyond words! Please remove gooner from your profile! Your not part of our club/family — Keiron Batchelor (@keiron85) January 27, 2019 I'm extremely proud to be a supporter of a club that has historically been at the forefront of the fight against racism and homophobia that are so prevalent in the game even today. You've failed that legacy. You need to resign. You're no ambassador for our club's values. — Chris (@KrimboSausage) January 28, 2019 Hold these L's and apologise to @alexiwobi and to @Arsenal pic.twitter.com/ixXrQBsdT2 — Dave O (@DUO84) January 27, 2019 See now, we don't want to kill you over it but the fact that you could laugh at him being called gorilla faced and then uploading it on spur of the moment, being the ambassador of the club isn't worth an apology. That is actually the worst thing you could do for the Indian fanbse — Kushagra Jain (@kushagrajainn) January 27, 2019 Do us all a favour and never step foot at arsenal and take the word gooner out your biog as you def ain't one of us — Football Dad (@FootballDadUK) January 27, 2019 I have no idea who you are but shocked to learn you are an ambassador for the club .@Arsenal get this hate out of our club !!! — Leroy Tyson (@LTyspn) January 27, 2019 Please do not associate with our club. If you are a true gunner you will stand down and respect others around you. ESPECIALLY IWOBI — William (@William17384989) January 27, 2019
  16. Hafþór Björnsson is probably the only human in the world who could play and justify the character of The Mountain in the iconic show 'Game Of Thrones'. The giant Icelander, who stands at 6 feet and 9 inches, obviously shares nothing in common with the brutal character he essays, except for his size, of course.

Taking to social media, as is the norm for newly-married celeb couples these days, he posted a picture of them sipping on some hot cocoa or coffee (we don't know and we are just assuming it) in a normal sized mug. Now, you may be wondering why this simple picture has gone viral. Well, take a look for yourself.

The picture has created so much buzz, that there is a whole dedicated Reddit thread for it ! Obviously, people have mixed emotions and various opinions the unbelievable image. Well, you have to admit that this picture is kind of funny and he looks so big in comparison to that tiny mug, that we literally want to use him as a measurement scale! He has also been tagged as the strongest man in the world and holds the title of the 'Arnold Classic Champion 2018' as well.
  17. Gossip mills haven't had the time to relax ever since the first sparks flew, suggesting that one of Hindi film industry's up and coming star and desirable bachelor Vicky Kaushal might be taken, and in a committed relationship with upcoming actress Harleen Sethi. While celebrity tabloids have constantly been on the lookout for more concrete details about the status of their relationship, both Vicky and Harleen have time and again avoided confirming or denying the suggested liaison. View this post on Instagram ⨠Thank you वà¥à¤°à¥ @vickykaushal09 for turning up and lending us your ever reliable hand â¨. . #brokenbutbeautiful streaming tomorrow on @altbalaji . . @ektaravikapoor @saritatanwar @itsharleensethi @sanndstorm A post shared by Vikrant Massey (@vikrantmassey87) on Nov 26, 2018 at 10:17am PST But now, things seem to be changing, and for this once, we are tempted to say that change is indeed good. It seems like the alleged couple have now decided to go public with their hush-hush relationship, and chose a very opportune moment to make the declaration about the same. With Vicky's latest release 'Uri' soaring in the heights of box office success, the film's team decided to celebrate in a grand style. Sure enough, Vicky's rumoured girlfriend was also in attendance. But that's not it, in the picture shared by Harleen on her official Instagram account, we can see her sporting a customised sweatshirt with a dialogue from 'Uri' printed on it. View this post on Instagram High Sir! #URI A post shared by Harleen Sethi (@itsharleensethi) on Jan 16, 2019 at 10:12pm PST Smiling at the camera, arm in arm, their closeness and camaraderie can be easily sensed in this image. People have taken this as a subtle hint of confirming their rumoured romantic relations on social media. Both Vicky and Harleen have come out in support of each other's professional projects, be it Vicky turning up during the launch of Harleen's latest project 'Broken' with Vikrant Massey, or Harleen attending the special screening of 'Uri'. No matter when these guys decide to officially speak up about their dating status, we still totally ship the highly talented and good-looking pair!
  18. Ranveer Singh was just spotted wearing, what we think, is the most interesting piece of clothing we have seen in a while. He wore a longline shirt (it's a shirt that's long - like a kurta with buttons all the way down) designed by the esteemed Rajesh Pratap Singh. What struck us was the print on that shirt. It was dotted with (well, they weren't exactly dots, much bigger, but that describes the pattern) Jimi Hendrix heads. Say what? Take a look. © Viral Bhayani Well, you probably can't see it here because of the angle, so here is a picture of him wearing it as a part of one of his airport looks a while back. © Viral Bhayani Staying true to his reputation of being the king of eccentric clothes, Ranveer chose to sport the king of Rock on his clothes this time. Any rock enthusiast will be thrilled to own that shirt, irrespective of whether they are a 'fashionista' or not. Even though the shirt is supremely eye-catching at first glance, it doesn't look or feel 'outrageous' - something Ranveer wouldn't have the slightest problem with, even if it were. Plus, looking at it fills you up with this vibe of quiet longing, and a rush of nostalgia. Perhaps that has to do with Jimi's expression. © Viral Bhayani Isn't that a dope piece of clothing? We bet every guitarist would kill to own that shirt, and for good reason. © Viral Bhayani Let's just say when it comes to Ranveer, it always goes like: another day, another outfit we're jealous of.
  19. Cristiano Ronaldo's Juventus have found themselves in a bit of a sticky wicket, as their pursuit for the first title in the New Year is overshadowed by rage, protests and probably the most bizarre human rights violation in the history of football, as Saudi Arabia has banned 'women unaccompanied by men' to enter the football stadiums. As the reigning Serie A and Italian Cup champions Juventus prepare to go against A.C. Milan in tomorrow's Supercoppa Italiana final at King Abdullah Sports City Stadium, in Jeddah, Amnesty International, an NGO which works for the Human Rights all over the world, have requested the both of them to not participate in the contest at all. The request came from the NGO following the assassination of journalist and women's rights activist, Jamal Khashoggi. Le donne alla #SuperCoppaItaliana vanno allo stadio solo se accompagnate dagli uomini. Ma stiamo scherzando? I signori del #calcio vendano pure i diritti delle partite ma non si permettano di barattare i diritti delle donne! — laura boldrini (@lauraboldrini) January 3, 2019 When Serie A made public the information about some seats being available only to men and that women may only be allowed to sit in the 'Family' section of the stadium, it only added fuel to the fire. Italian Deputy Prime Minister Matteo Salvini showed his displeasure by calling the whole act “disgusting” and announced that he will not be watching the game. While no news from either of the teams about shunning the game is out yet, Saudi Arabia's decision to ban single women from stadiums cries for support from big influences like Juventus and A.C. Milan. Players like Ronaldo and Paulo Dybala, who are loved by millions from all around ought to feel a sense of responsibility towards their fans and their human rights. But sadly, Juventus defender Alex Sandro feels that “the Saudis have taken a step forward," allowing at least married women to come and watch the sport. He believes that “they have a different fan base…” and hopes to have a good final. Partial human rights mean no human rights at all.
  20. Ever since the so-called 'special' episode of 'Koffee With Karan' aired last Sunday, the lives of Hardik Pandya and KL Rahul have turned around for all the wrong reasons. Owing to their misogynist and sexist comments on the show, the two Indian cricketers have already faced a lot of backlash as they await fitting punishment for their actions on national TV. After the Committee of Administrators (CoA) chief Vinod Rai's recommendation of a two-ODI ban, the duo was charged with misconduct and indiscipline before being suspended from all forms of cricket pending a detailed inquiry into the controversy. The two cricketers were later forced to return home from Australia where the Indian cricket team is currently engrossed with the ODI series. Amid the uproar on social media, Virat Kohli made his stand clear and stated that the comments made by Hardik Pandya and KL Rahul are not are not acceptable and the personal opinions are not the view of the India team. "We, definitely, as the Indian cricket team do not support views like that and that has been communicated. I can definitely say that as the Indian cricket team and responsible cricketers we definitely don't align with those views and those are purely individual views," Kohli had said ahead of India's first ODI against the Aussies at the Sydney Cricket Ground (SCG). BCCL Following Kohli's strong stance on the demeanour of the two cricketers, Harbhajan Singh, too, came out all guns blazing against Pandya and Rahul for tarnishing the image of the game and those who play it. even went on to add that he won't be comfortable having Pandya and Rahul around his wife and daughter. "I will not travel with these two guys in the bus if my daughter or my wife are travelling in the team bus with me. How would they feel? You are looking at women in only one angle and that is not right," Harbhajan told India Today. The veteran Indian spinner also pointed out that the duo's comments have now put every cricketer's reputation on the line. "We don't talk about all this even with our friends and they were talking on public television. Now people might think was Harbhajan Singh like this, was Anil Kumble like this and was Sachin Tendulkar," Harbhajan added. Instagram/@hardikpandya93 "Pandya has been in the team for how long to talk of the team culture in the manner he did. I think this is the way to go," the 38-year-old said, when asked about the suspension. "The BCCI did the right thing, and this is also the way forward. This was expected and I am not surprised," Bhajji said. Following the nation-wide outrage, Pandya and Rahul, in response to the BCCI's showcause notice demanding an explanation from the two cricketers, had regretted their actions and apologised for hurting the sentiments of people. However, the BCCI officials unanimously decided to suspend the Pandya and Rahul while ordering an inquiry into the row.
  21. Xiaomi announced two new Mi TV models and a soundbar that has eight drivers which include two 20mm dome tweeters, two 2.5” woofers for the mids and four passive radiators for bass and low-frequency sounds. With the rise of sales of Smart TVs in India (partly thanks to cheaper offerings by Xiaomi), the company has now entered into the home entertainment segment. © Xiaomi The Mi Soundbar is Xiaomi's first home audio device for India and costs only Rs 4,999. The aggressive pricing will definitely turn a few heads as I've been using it for a few days myself. The overall experience is great for casual viewing in your bedroom and gives that extra oomph for action-packed movies. I've been rewatching the Harry Potter series and the soundbar offers detailed sound to fill up my room. It's the perfect accessory for your TV if you are on a budget but don't want to compromise on sound quality. © Xiaomi Setting up the Mi Soundbar is fairly straight forward as you can use various input options such as Bluetooth, Line-in, Optical, Aux and S/PDIF. I prefer to use the traditional RCA option as it gives the best audio output as it is warmer and more lifelike. Bluetooth can also be used if you want a wireless solution however since it's Bluetooth, you will notice a difference in sound quality. That's just the nature of Bluetooth audio technology at the moment. You can use an optical cable or the S/PDIF input; however, I prefer the Line-in option. The Mi Soundbar has a frequency range from 50 Hz – 25000 Hz ( -10 dB) and a nominal impedance of 6 ohms. That's quite impressive for something that costs less than a fine dining meal in New Delhi. Most solid-state amplifiers are designed to work with loudspeaker combinations of anything from 4 ohms to 8 ohms. In terms of design, it follows the unique “Mi Look” which means it has a very minimalistic look but remains stylish at the same time. It has a mesh fabric overlay that gives it the “retro” look which you have already seen on other devices and soundbars before. You can even mount the Soundbar on a wall thanks to the supplied screws in the box making it more of a DIY solution. How Does It Sound? In order to review this product, we watched the Harry Potter series and listened to music on Spotify in order to test the sound quality. Being an audiophile, I often scrutinise audio devices based on bass clarity, mid clarity and goal clarity. Since this is a soundbar, we had to consider the surround simulation as well. © Xiaomi The Mi Soundbar was consistent when it came to watching movie content and offered a balanced sound while using the Line-in input. The result was similar while using an S/PDIF cable. When we switched to Bluetooth, the sound was a little degraded since the audio output was being transmitted wirelessly. AUX cable was good enough only for listening to music as it could not offer the same experience we got from an RCA cable. The mid and low frequencies are pronounced, making movie effects powerful. While watching movies, the surround sound simulation is the most important feature you want to look at. For something that costs Rs 4,999, the Mi Soundbar delivered satisfactory performance and served the purpose. Of course, there are some better ones out there but they also cost a bomb. The Mi Soundbar proves that you can be cost-effective and don't need to spend a lot of money. Remember, the Mi Soundbar is perfect for a small to a mid-sized room and can't deliver a full home theatre experience. What We Didn't Like The Mi Soundbar does not come with a remote and you can only select the source by operating the physical buttons on the loudspeaker. You cannot control the volume of the soundbar via the TV which makes it a bit annoying to get up every single time. You can only control the volume remotely if you are connected via Bluetooth which means you may have to compromise on the sound quality. We would have loved to see some IR/App integration so that we could control the individual volume of the soundbar from the comfort of our bed. The Final Say The Mi Soundbar is probably the most affordable home audio device out there that delivers a great experience on a budget. If you don't want to spend a bomb on an expensive solution for your TV, you need to check out the Mi Soundbar. For Rs 4,999, the Mi Soundbar offers way more than its counterparts. We would have loved to see some sort of remote to control volume; however, it's something we can live with for now.
  22. 2018, without a doubt, belonged to Vicky Kaushal. From the best roles to the best media presence which translated to the best fandom one could ask for, the lad had it all. One more thing that he really nailed last year, and clearly wants to excel at this year too, is his style game. He started off the year scoring a lot of brownie points in terms of his outfits and his shoes. He just wore a pair of shoes for the promotion of 'Uri', which are definite collectables. © Viral Bhayani © Viral Bhayani Vicky is wearing the Yeezy 500 'Salt' sneakers - the super statement shoes with a suede panel sitting on top of a sporty mesh base. Just look at that chunky but edgy pair! © jordanupdate When it comes to collectables, sneakerheads will most definitely look forward to owning Yeezys, as they have pretty much set the tone for the bulky street aesthetic of new age sneakers (them and Balenciagas, of course). © jordanupdate This particular pair stands apart because of its blue tint and the luminous reflective panels. The bold calf suede sneakers feature a round toe, a lace-up front fastening, a rubber sole and an AdiPrene foam midsole. © jordanupdate These Adidas sneakers cost 200 USD, which is pleasantly inexpensive (by celebrity standards, 14K is inexpensive, don't @ us). © Viral Bhayani © Viral Bhayani Coming to his overall outfit, we love the turquoise pop on the black-brown base. Living the sartorial dream all right, Vicky!
  23. If you are regular to the gym, you already know how essential a gym bag is. I mean, I can't really do without one. Right from wrist straps to deodorants and the protein shaker, 'everything gym' finds its way into the bag. But have you ever wondered what all you really need to have in your gym bag? Well, here are 5 gym bag essentials that every dude must carry in his gym bag all the time. 1) Deodorants © YouTube Well, your fellow gym members are surely going to thank you for this. Carrying a deodorant in your gym bag is always a smart move especially if its summers. However, I would recommend to keep it handy in all seasons. Sweating inside the gym is inevitable but poor hygiene is not. Some people smell really bad when they sweat and make others feel uncomfortable around them. I am sure that you must also have experienced something similar around you in your gym. The worst part of it is that you can't even ask people to use a deodorant on themselves so that you don't sound rude to them. By taking care of your hygiene you will at least be encouraging people around you to do the same. 2) Non-Leaky Water Bottle © YouTube The chances of you being properly hydrated during your workout are more if you are carrying a water bottle with you. You will not make a deliberate effort to hydrate yourself if there's only one water cooler in the gym and it's always surrounded with people. You would rather concentrate on finishing your set than to walk over again and again and stand in the queue to sip in water. Thus it is always smart to carry a water bottle along with you. It is also better for you own hygiene as majority of the gyms don't even offer disposable glasses and use the same steel glasses again and again. 3) Hand Towels That Don't Stink © YouTube You would consider yourself lucky if your gym offers you a facility of availing a hand towel everyday as majority of the gyms in India don't do that. Even if they did offer you a hand towel, it isn't a smart thing to use it as these hand towels are used by so many people throughout the day and who knows how properly they are washed. I've seen people even using their t-shirt to wipe off sweat off their face. That's really a poor hygiene for your skin health. That could also be one of the reasons for your face acne. Thus, make sure to carry a neat towel in your gym bag every day. 4) Pain Relief Sprain Ointment Or Spray © Tiger Balm, Facebook Injuries often take place during working out in the gym. It could be a mild bruise due to a fall or it could be a sprain due to incorrect lifting while performing a heavy lift. Sometimes these sprains can be so painful that you will even face difficulty to grab your stuff and leave for home. Now if your gym has some form of basic medicine box that has quick relief spray, its good, if not then you are up for a painful ride to your home. A quick spray for sprains isn't too much costly and barely takes up any space in your gym bag thus it is smart to carry one. The day you get injured, you will thank yourself for keeping one handy. 5) Lifting Straps And Belt © Amazon If you're a serious lifter, you should always carry your own lifting straps and belts. There isn't much of an option with lifting straps as gyms generally don't offer any from their end. Lifting straps come in handy while performing some heavy compound lifting or even with isolation movements sometimes. They can prevent injuries when you really push yourself to limits. In the similar way, though the gyms do offer lifting belts, but it isn't necessary that it will fit you precisely. The best way is to go to market and buy one as per your own size and shape so that you don't have to compromise with the fit. If the lifting belt doesn't fit you precisely, it won't be of much use to you.

  24. Famously, all Maria Carey wants for Christmas, is you. This is great news if you're a Maria Carey fan. As the holiday season draws closer and our staff chat channel turns to egg nog, twinkly lights and why is wrapping so hard, we asked the question: What would you like for Christmas? Brandon With so many children, Christmas is more focused on them and the family than myself. My eldest son who started college this year just returned home for the holiday season yesterday which has been awesome. You don't realize how it's like a piece of you is missing until they're back. I guess you could call that a Christmas present for me. Also, my wife and I took a quick 2 day cruise to the Bahamas as a gift to ourselves. My children have not requested very much for Christmas this year either, so my wife and I have decided we're going to plan a trip to Disney/Orlando for some time later in 2019 as a family gift instead of focusing on a bunch of little toys the kids will quickly get bored with. The family time together is the best Christmas gift to me. Awww Mark H In truth, what I’d like for Christmas isn’t something Sanata could provide. At my age I already have most of the “things” I simply want, and the things I really *need* I already have; family and friends. But… I wouldn’t object to Santa dropping off a new gaming computer with a motherboard for an Intel core i9, an RTX 2080 Ti video card, 16 GB of RAM, and one or two NVME SSD’s. Me too Andy I’ve been trying to de-clutter my life for most of the year so hopefully I won’t get much in the way of stocking fillers and things that are fun for a few days and then pushed in a drawer. I’m not a total Scrooge though, honest. I’m really looking forward to spending time with family and friends, Christmas Day walks in the snow and coming home to a toasty warm fire and a few beers… just the simple things really. Marc S I think you get to the point with Christmas where presents become largely unimportant, and its more a time for family to get together and have fun etc. But I guess if I'm going to choose anything particular that I know I would use, I would probably go for a new iMac pro with all the extras. LOL. Seriously though, I'm happy with the break, a few drinks and games. This is what Christmas is all about. Lost a couple of family members over the past 12 month, and unfortunately none of us live forever. Brings home the realisation that there is more to life than material items, as much as we all enjoy them. Where's My Computer? Jennifer I don't really celebrate Christmas traditionally in my house. Like almost everyone in my house has already gotten all of their Christmas gifts. I would probably want just a quiet night with a long hot bath, my favorite bath bomb and a glass of wine. She really does How I became a cliche mom that wants bath stuff for presents. I have no idea. I'd likely love to get Metro Exodus pre-order. I know my BF doesn't pre-order games anymore because of some of the new pre-order issues with games with un-dedicated developers but it's a game I am excited for and hope to have come February when it comes out. Rhett A week in Hawaii, no phone, no computer, feet in the sand and a beer in my hand! Is that too much to ask for Santa? I've been good. Jim I'd say world peace but I think a 2019 Chevy Corvette ZR1 would be easier! Mark Wade A couple good bottles of wine, or I'd also quite like a new iPad Pro. Not relevant but made me laugh Matt Like others here at Invision Community, I've reached the grand old age where material possessions aren't what I long for. I'm happy watching my two children open their gifts on Christmas morning and then share a meal with family. Or maybe a new iPad Pro because if Mark is getting one, I want one too. Yet again Charles and Lindy declined to comment, so in the spirit of Christmas generosity, I've written their answers for them. Charles I would like a butler because it is what I deserve. Lindy I would like a panic room like in that Jodie Foster movie. I don't think for a second I'm going to be attacked in my own home. I just need a place to hide from the kids now and again. I'll kit it out with fresh kombucha, artisanal popcorn and poetry books. I'll be happy for hours. So, that is what we want for Christmas. What about you? Have you been naughty or nice?
  25. I get a lot of comments on my YouTube channel to make a shoulder workout videos. I haven't made the video yet but I would like to share my thoughts on how you can achieve massive shoulders. Remember, this is the base of any shoulder workout plan you will see on the internet. With the help of this, you can easily find out where you are lacking if you have weak shoulders or why your shoulders aren't as muscular as they can be. 1. Shoulder Press When it comes to building strength and size, the good old shoulder press is the king of all shoulder exercises. The best thing about shoulder press is that it works all the 3 heads of the shoulder i.e. anterior (front), side (lateral) and rear (posterior). Not just the shoulders, even your triceps get worked to a certain extent. There are various variations of this exercise that you can do with barbells or dumbbells, for example - standing overhead press, seated front press (military press), Arnold press and lying dumbbell press. © Pixabay Beginners should always master the seated variation before moving to advanced variations. Most people don't know that they can emphasise different heads of shoulders by using different elbow positions and grip width while doing the shoulder press. -Using a narrow grip while keeping the elbows forward, isolates the anterior (front) deltoid and clavicular head of your pecs. Also hits the triceps more hard. -Using a wide grip with elbows out to the side isolates the anterior (front) and middle deltoids. 2. Lateral Raises If you want something referred to as the 3D shoulders look, you can't ignore lateral or side raises. This exercise can again be done using a dumbbell, cable or even an e-z bar. Lateral raises target the middle deltoid or the side shoulder mainly. Hold a dumbbell either in one or both the hands and raise it to the side until it becomes horizontal to the floor while keeping a slight bend in the elbow. Lower the dumbbell under control without letting it fall under the action of gravity taking 2-3 seconds. © Pinterest Note- It's very important that you keep your elbows slightly bent in order to work your muscles effectively. Since the deltoid is a multipennate muscle, meaning it has multiple rows of diagonal fibres with a central tendon (tissue attaching muscle to a bone) branching into two or more tendons, it makes sense to hit it from all the angles. 3. Exercises For The Rear Deltoid The posterior (rear) deltoid is the most commonly ignored head of the shoulder. People get a lot of front deltoid work from various presses done on chest or shoulder days while the poor opposite rear deltoid is mostly left on its own. Having a stronger anterior head but an even weaker rear head is asking for trouble. Poor posture and injury chances increase by doing so. © Pixabay Make sure you add exercises such as rope pulls, high pulley lateral extensions, bent over lateral raises and rear deltoid extensions on a pec dec machine(rear pec dec fly) along with the exercises mentioned in points above for maximal shoulder development. Following the above protocol consistently while focussing on increasing weight/ reps will result in overall shoulder development.
