  1. To all the people who're getting on an airplane anytime soon, I'm sorry for what you're going to read next. There's a terrifying video of some violent turbulence on a plane that is going around right now, because well, it's terrifying. (I know I said terrifying twice, but this video deserves it. Possibly the worst flight ever was an ALK Airlines flight Boeing 737 going from Kosovo to Switzerland where at one point, the turbulence got so bad that a flight attendant crashed into the roof. Yep, the roof of the plane. Passenger Mirjeta Basha managed to capture the moment and well, here it is. Warning - this might make people's fear of flying even worse. The video shows the powerful jolt that threw the flight attendant into the roof of the aircraft. The fear among all the people aboard can also be seen. Reportedly, a few passengers were even hospitalized after the flight landed. Talking to a Swiss paper, Basha said, “People started screaming and crying. I thought we all had to die. My husband has scalded his neck.” A statement from the airport authorities said, “The flight from Pristina with airline ALK experienced turbulence in the air around 20 minutes before landing. The pilot alerted handling agents so that the airport firemen were immediately on the scene when the plane arrived. The aircraft continued for a normal landing, no emergency was declared. Medical assistance was requested after landing, two passengers needed medical assessment. No seats were ripped off at all.”
  2. Exactly a week from now will mark the one month anniversary since the last episode of 'Game of Thrones' was aired across the globe. While fans have not yet been able to get over the shocker that was the final season of 'GOT', it seems that the makers are not in the mood to let the fans get over the pain and disappointment any time soon. © HBO After HBO submitted the dissatisfactory final episodes from its highly criticised final season of 'Game of Thrones' for Emmy consideration, fans have been left furious. They simply cannot wrap their heads around why the worst episodes from the worst 'GOT' season were sent for the nominations. © HBO According to a TV Guide report, 'GOT' Season 8's only appealing episodes, 'Winterfell' and 'A Knight of the Seven Kingdoms' have been overlooked in favour of the worst-rated episodes under the writing and directing categories. © HBO HBO submitted Miguel Sapochnik's name for 'Game of Thrones' season 8's 'The Long Night', David Nutter for 'The Last of the Starks', and DB Weiss and David Benioff for 'The Iron Throne', in the Best Directing category. Benioff and Weiss' script for the finale - 'The Iron Throne' - was the only submission in the Best Writing category. Fans are fuming at all the possibilities that this presents. so who thought it was a good idea for hbo to submit 8x06 of game of thrones for an emmy nomination in best writing category when this episode is of the most boring season finales to ever exist pic.twitter.com/UkI5dGFPdG — ellie (@odairannies) June 11, 2019 TFW you realize the best episode of #GameOfThrones' last season—"A Knight of the Seven Kingdoms," obviously—is submitted for neither Directing nor Writing at the #Emmys. pic.twitter.com/PpSDtxjI4q — Myles McNutt (@Memles) June 10, 2019 you: surely it's been a month and you've run out of new Game of Thrones things to complain about me: THEY DIDN'T SUBMIT A KNIGHT OF THE SEVEN KINGDOMS FOR OUTSTANDING WRITING OR DIRECTING AT THE EMMYS — Victoria Edel (@victoriaedel) June 10, 2019 The #GameofThrones team submitted their episodes for writing and directing Emmy categories and none of the ones submitted are the best one of the season. Hate to see it. pic.twitter.com/O6pWXPO64H — Joanna Robinson (@jowrotethis) June 10, 2019
  3. You probably know by now, from the nonstop conversations around you, that you're supposed to prep your skin before going out in the sun. UV rays can be really tough on our skin, but you probably didn't know that your skin needs protection indoors as well. Evolving research finds that the new keyword for the grooming regime is blue light, which is the harmful radiation emitted from all of our digital screens like phones, cameras, tablets, computers, and more. There are negative effects of the blue light on our sleep and skin too. We check our phones on an average of 150 times a day and clock up more than 10 hours of screen time daily. This means we are getting significantly more blue light exposure than we get from the sun alone. © Getty Images Skin damage caused by HEV light may be as harmful as the damage caused by UVA and UVB light combined. It does not generate the redness and inflammation triggered by UVB and UVA, but like UVA, blue light may be another silent, long-term ageing wavelength. Blue light has the highest energy wavelength, which can penetrate deep into the skin and damage even the innermost skin layer. © Getty Images How Does Blue Light (HEV) Damage The Skin? The Blue HEV light has exposed the harsh reality that we are all exposed to some form of HEV light every day and our skin is under attack, even when we are indoors. Computer monitors, flat screen televisions, mobile phones with flat screens, energy efficient cool white daylight or full spectrum lights, reflective surfaces like snow, concrete, sand, water, and glass or even sitting near car windows, provide constant exposure to the damaging effects of HEV light. Research indicates that the blue light triggers cell oxidation and damages proteins in the human skin. What's worse is that long-term exposure to concentrated blue light energy can cause skin damage, including colour changes (think; dark spots and hyperpigmentation), inflammation (redness), developing fine lines and wrinkles. Considering the humongous amount of time, your skin is exposed to the screen, you can imagine how fast your skin is ageing. © Getty Images How To Punch Back The Blue Light (HEV) Damage? The good news is that there are measures you can take to protect your skin and lessen the damage that HEV- blue light can inflict. © Getty Images · Use a full tablespoon of organic sunscreen with protection from UVA and UVB rays on your face and reapply at least every two to three hours even when you are indoors. · Load up on antioxidants; whether in your skin care routine or diet. They help fight free radical damage to your body cells. · Dim the light on your phone and computer screen to lessen the impact of the blue light, or apply a blue light filter, but this is not guaranteed to prevent damage. So, pack your sunscreen into your work bag! The new rules of sunscreen will guard your skin against the blue light. Remember to protect your skin every day- yes, it's the new swag, to use sunscreen indoors. Author Bio: The author of this article, Mr Rahul Aggarwal is the CEO of Organic Harvest.
  4. We all have dreaded exams throughout our lives. Alright, at least most of us have dreaded examinations of any sort for a good part of our lives. But matters only got worse when we were in class 10th and 12th. The kind of accumulative pressure (but mostly expectations) from peers, family, relatives, neighbours, to even the house help, milkman and sometimes, the school caretaker, amongst many others is something that most children at that 'tender' age are not able to handle. © Getty Images As if preparing and sitting for the examinations were not enough, we even had to deal with the nasty results that haunted us even in our dreams. (Don't tell us you haven't ever had one of those). However, while students (and parents) can deal with most kinds of mess related to our report cards, the one thing that was a plain red flag was getting an 'F', that is, failing. Well, as you have already guessed from the headline of this article, this nightmare came true for hundreds of 10th class students in Gujarat yesterday. © Getty Images Out of the 8,22,823 students who appeared for the class 10th board examinations conducted by the Gujarat Secondary and Higher Secondary Education Board (GSHSEB) earlier in March, only 5,51,023 students have managed to clear the exams. If reports are to be believed, results show that not even a single student from close to 63 schools in the state have been able to clear the Secondary School Certificate examinations. The overall pass percentage came to 66.97 per cent, which was slightly lower than 67.5 per cent of last year. © Getty Images We can't even imagine what the students and their parents must be going through right now, but this also throws light on the harsh reality of the sad state of our education system in many parts of the country, which requires better and deeper intervention at the earliest.
  5. Another day, another disappointment for Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) who continue their winless streak in the twelfth season of the Indian Premier League (IPL) having played four matches and have found themselves at the bottom of the league's points table. After captain Kohli got dismissed by a magnificent Shreyas Gopal (who ended up with a three-wicket-haul), the second RCB opener, Parthiv Patel put the burden on his shoulders to help his side reach a respectable total of 158. Patel's bat contributed with 67 runs off 41 balls which also included 9 boundaries and a maximum. However, Rajasthan Royals (RR) opener Jos Buttler and Steve Smith were too hot to handle for the men in red and gold as they spearheaded Royals to win their first game of the season. Having said that, Tuesday's match against Rajasthan got Virat Kohli an incredible feat to boast about as it provided him with the opportunity to captain an IPL squad for the 100th time and make him only the third cricketer in the world to do so, behind Chennai Super Kings star Mahendra Singh Dhoni (162 matches) and former IPL player, Gautam Gambhir (129 matches between Kolkata Knight Riders and Delhi Daredevils. Today our skipper – @imVkohli becomes the third captain in IPL history to play as captain in 100 matches. Congratulations Virat, keep playing bold! #PlayBold pic.twitter.com/Ar5FASqB24 — Royal Challengers (@RCBTweets) April 2, 2019 Ironically, such a record that should normally bring a sense of pride to any athlete, also brings immense shame to RCB skipper as Kohli has the worst record amongst the men who have reached such a status. Amongst the 162 games led by Dhoni, he has a win percentage of 60.24% while Gambhir's is at 55.42% with three and two titles under their belts, respectively. Kohli, on the other hand, is at a below average mark of 46.87% wins as captain. Not to forget the fact that Bengaluru have never won the trophy. With another loss of the season in what appears to be a lost cause, RCB fans have resorted to humour to hide their pain but we see right through it: RCB Fans: When will we win our 1st IPL title???

  6. Arjun Kapoor has been best friends with Ranveer Singh for the longest time. Only recently, however, he's given in to his creative side and served us with interesting fashion lewks one after the other. There are certain favourites too that have emerged out of Arjun Kapoor's new relationship with fashion. © Viral Bhayani © Viral Bhayani Firstly, the moustache. The heavy duty bush has stuck around for quite sometime now and is definitely here to stay from the looks of it. His hat is another constant in his life; just like water and food, Mr. Kapoor cannot survive without his hat it seems. © Viral Bhayani But here's the interesting bit, the unconventional combinations has got us hooked. Only recently, Mr. Kapoor was spotted wearing a Dean Dan shirt. Take a look: And if you can't read the message clearly, here's what it says: © Viral Bhayani And very rightly so, dads wouldn't want their kids to become the kids that they warn their kids about. However, as dysfunctional as the reality maybe, the Tee definitely has a charm to it.
  7. 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!
  8. Sarvatra Sarvottam Suraksha- Omnipresent Security of the Highest Level. Bharat Mata Ki Jai!- Hail Mother India. With this motto and war-cry as the primary ideal and an ethos that includes pursuit for excellence, leading from the front, zero-error and launching surprise attacks on intruders with speed, stealth and precision, the National Security Guard (NSG) Commandos or the Black Cats (named after their black uniform and gear) of the Indian Special Forces, are one of the most fierce warriors. Not only are these men great warriors, but they are also fine tactical athletes of their own kind. The NSG was officially established in 1986, in an effort to create an elite force to counter any terrorist activities within the boundaries of our country. Like every branch of our Special Forces, the NSG has also developed gradually and their physical and mental fitness requirements have evolved from the time it got established. I am fortunate enough to be good friends with a few individuals who have been and are still serving in the Special Forces; and hence by writing this piece, I hope fellow Indians realize how gruelling the NSG training can be in order to stand a chance to protect our beloved country from within. Due to reasons pertaining to national security, not everything can be revealed but I have tried my best to portray the fitness requirements of the Black Cats after interviewing a few Black Cat Commandos. © Defencelover “The NSG is a volunteer arm and it has two parts: The Special Action Group consists of commandos selected from the Army and the Special Ranger Group consists of commandos from the Central and State Police Forces. Out of thousands of candidates, only 0.3% get selected to serve in the NSG. It is a very competitive procedure”, said Commando A (Name undisclosed). But why is the selection process so aggressive? It is mainly because the candidates are expected to change and transform themselves from soldiers or police personnel to Commandos in a very short time, and this procedure is physically and mentally taxing. “Candidates are not only expected to attain a minimum of “excellent” fitness performance as per the regular army standards (these include running, long jump, chin-ups, pushups, rope climbing and sit-ups; with and without combat gear), but also expected to become independent leaders by demonstrating excellent personality development and soft-skills.”, Commando A added. © Defencelover “The roles of the NSG include security of VIPs, room intervention and combating any and every sorts of terrorist activities within the country. During the counter-terror operation of 26/11 at the Taj Hotel in Mumbai, the commandos had to perform room intervention and make a quick decision as to when to shoot or when to hold fire after breaking open every room-door. There could have been terrorists or only innocent guests or both in the room and decision making was crucial.”, said Commando B. “During the initial three-month training, commandos are not given more than 2-3 hours of sleep. I was made to stand for hours while wearing heavy loads on my back” said Commando C. We all know how important sleep is to us and how it helps us perform daily activities with ease. But we can't even imagine how much willpower it would require to ace physical tests, to learn martial arts and to be precise with target shooting while being sleep deprived! The NSG commandos are also well-trained in MMA (Mixed Martial Arts), Pekiti-Tirsia Kali (A Filipino martial art) and Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu by qualified martial arts trainers. © YouTube If you thought that this was the end of their training, then let me add that after being a member of the NSG, commandos are tested either monthly or quarterly to make sure their skills and fitness levels remain up to the mark. Besides, they undergo multiple simulations for preparation and real-life projects that civilians never hear of. In 2018, the US Special Forces (Green Berets) conducted a joint drill with the NSG in Kolkata and were very impressed with the drills carried out in the Metro Railways by the Black Cats. There is no doubt that India is in safe and strong hands indeed.
  9. There were a lot of emotions flowing throughout the WWE Universe during yesterday's episode of RAW. People got extremely emotional when Roman Reigns announced that after battling cancer for more than four months, he is on remission. However, they were shocked and surprised as Batista returned to the ring and attacked the Nature Boy Ric Flair on his 70th Birthday. But probably the strongest emotion the fans of the show felt was that of annoyance and the feeling of cringe, when Jinder Mahal and his minions, the 'Singh Brothers' joined Flair's birthday celebration after RAW went off the air. EXCLUSIVE: @JinderMahal got to come to @RicFlairNatrBoy's birthday party after all when #Raw went off the air... pic.twitter.com/LonJJrXVrs — WWE (@WWE) February 26, 2019 After Ric Flair failed to make it to the ring for his party after Batista's assault, Mahal and the Singhs came in front of the WWE Universe complaining about not being invited to Flair's birthday bash. He then went on to have a “Punjabi Bhangra party” of their own as loud Punjabi music filled the stadium, overpowering the massive boos being growled by the audience. After watching Mahal's antagonising dances moves for a couple of seconds (which honestly felt like hours), Shawn Michaels decided to end the debacle with a well-deserved sweet-chin music superkick to his face followed by Kurt Angle's Angle Slam on top of the birthday cake. Michaels also superkicked the Singh Brothers as well, while Angle rubbed a huge chunk of the cake on one of the two's face. Last night's show was rich in content and with the Batista segment at the end, it did not require anything else to add to the fans' memories as they drove back home. The fact that the last thing the WWE Universe saw before exiting the stadium was Jinder Mahal's face covered in cake, is just one of those things people have to endure and move on in life with. Obviously it wasn't accepted by the fans of the show and they let WWE have it: 2019-2-25 @WWE RAW in Atlanta, post match: Jinder Mahal was still upset after the show went off the air and tried to take over the party with the Singh Brothers.

  10. If the Indian Premier League (IPL) is considered to be one of the most lucrative T20 tournaments across the world, then Australia's very own Big Bash League (BBL), too, continues to entice cricket fans with entertaining and exciting clashes over the years. From some breathtaking bowling spells to batting masterclass of marauding batsmen, the BBL has given cricket fans some of the greatest moments in the sport. Staying true to its nature, the eighth edition of the BBL is proving to be one of the best since the league's inception. There have been crazy catches in the stands and on the field. The individual batting performances have also come to the fore. And, thrilling contests continue to set the tone of the ongoing BBL season. More recently, another incident rose to the spotlight during the clash between Melbourne Renegades and Hobart Hurricanes. Australian fast bowler Riley Meredith became the talking point for reasons he wouldn't be able to forget for a while. The 22-year-old was looking to aid Hurricanes with a clinical bowling performance, but who would've thought the he would end up giving away 17 runs on a single delivery? Yep, you read that right. © Twitter/@BBL Riding on the heroics of skipper Matthew Wade (58), Hurricanes fancied their chances after posting a competitive total of 183 runs. In reply, Meredith was handed the responsibility of opening the attack as Renegades' openers came to the crease. But, what was arguably one of the worst overs bowled in T20 history, Meredith was seen conceding 23 runs in the first over of the innings. After conceding three runs off the first three deliveries, Meredith strayed off his line in epic fashion. The right-arm bowler overstepped on the fourth delivery, then bowled a wide that slipped past the wicket-keeper for a boundary, overstepped again and got whacked for a four, overstepped once again and got hammered for another four. The legal fourth delivery he eventually ended up bowling produced a single. 17 runs... FROM ONE BALL ð³ This Bucket Ball bonanza was the worst start to the innings the Hurricanes could imagine.@KFCAustralia | #BBL08 pic.twitter.com/FfS7svQXpm — KFC Big Bash League (@BBL) February 7, 2019 By the time, Meredith was finally done with his first over, his deliveries read: 0, 0, 1, 1nb, 5wd, 5nb, 5nb, 1, 4lb. The young Aussie paceman ended up conceding 23 runs in the first over of Renegades' innings - surely not the kind of start Hurricanes would've wanted. Thankfully, Meredith's horror over didn't have a major impact on Hurricanes' chances. With Jofra Archer, Qais Ahmad and D'Arcy Short bagging two wickets apiece, the hosts managed to restrict Renegades' chase to 167/8 in 20 overs, winning the contest by 16 runs. However, Meredith's error-ridden over became a major talking point as cricket fans across the globe expressed their views on social media. Riley Meredith has struggled since Warney said he should play for ð¦ðº #Kissofdeath #BBL08 #BBL pic.twitter.com/Iqc8T8jr0w — Justin Devine (@jdevine1974) February 7, 2019 I don't think Riley Meredith is a bad bowler I think it was just a terrible over, every bowler has a terrible over sometime in their season #foxcricket — Jake Glasson (@GlassonJake) February 7, 2019 Not sure which over was worse. Alex Keath's on debut in the BBL for the Melbourne Stars back in 2013, or that effort from Riley Meredith. #BBL08 — Matt Balmer (@MattBalmer7) February 7, 2019 Poor Riley Meredith has just bowled one of the worst overs in T20 history — Will Unwin (@Will_Unwin) February 7, 2019 #HHvMLR Riley Meredith topper of Dinda Academy ð — Aniket (@imAniketPshetty) February 7, 2019 Riley who .

  11. In a bizarre incident in Mumbai, a bus driver did something no one would have ever imagined doing. The driver of a school bus allegedly hit a BMW car while driving but that's not all. When the BMW driver got out of his car to reprimand the driver for the accident, he found out the driver was using a piece of bamboo as a gear stick, instead of having a normal gear stick in place. While on his way to school, the bus was probably doing a decent speed, a little more than he should have perhaps and he rammed in to the BMW. During the confrontation, the driver revealed that the steering wheel was giving him some problems for him to manoeuvre the bus with ease. Turns out, it wasn't the steering wheel but the bamboo stick he was using as the gear. We don't even know how that is possible, to begin with! © Twitter While confronting the driver, the BMW owner called the police to have the matter checked. When the police got to where the incident took place, they asked the driver about his callous bamboo make-shift gear, to which the driver replied he was using it as the gear knob had broken a few days ago and he found the piece of bamboo to replace it. Watch the video here: The reason why the driver, Raj Kumar, was using the bamboo stick was because he couldn't find time to repair the damaged gear and replace it with a real one. He's been booked under Indian penal code, section 279 for rash driving and 336 for the act of endangering a person's life. We're just wondering if there are any acts on using wooden or bamboo make-shift, fake gear sticks at all! The school is obviously shocked to hear about the incident and they will take whatever action needs to be taken for the callous bus driver. © Twitter Road safety is a big concern in most cities, especially with buses who drive rash and pay no heed to pedestrians. The upkeep of public transport is a matter of concern and it should definitely not be neglected at any given cost as it plays havoc with people's lives. I hope this is a lesson enough to understand the severity of using vehicles which are poorly managed. We really hope we don't read about a bus driver using an accordion as a brake, next!
  12. Electricity in the air. You. Your date. Stellar ambience. You look deep into each other's eyes. Ah, the magic of the first date! First dates are all about shy glances, getting to know each other, thinking about how to broach a topic and constantly trying to gauge what's going on in the other person's mind. But are first dates really all that about beauty, naivety and nervous charm? First dates are strenuous. The anticipation, the nervousness, the struggle to put your best foot forward. No one wants to make a bad impression on the first date. Like the cliché goes, the first impression is the last impression. But sometimes, no matter how hard you try, things do not work out in the way you want them to. Blame it on yourself, or the other person, the universe or just plain dumb luck, the fact that the date is ruined won't change. A first date does have a lot of potential, though we give too much importance to it, sometimes more than necessary, it is the first initiation in the world of dating. Don't worry. If it's meant to be, it'll happen even if it got ruined once. No one forgets their first date, especially if it was a bad one. We asked six men their worst first date experience and we were mighty surprised and quite amused by what we found: 1. The Blind Date: “It was a blind date. Though we had decided not to look at each other's pictures before the date, I ended up checking her profile on Facebook. Cut to the day of the date, I was running a bit late. I saw her seated at one of the booths of the café. As I approached her, she mistook me for the waiter and asked for a glass of water. Taken aback, I meekly poured the water in her glass and quietly walked away. “Bhaiya, paani yaha lago do please” still rings in my ears. Needless to say, we never dated again.” - Chinmay, 24 2. The Unknown Occurrence: “I met this girl at a friend's birthday party. We hit it off instantly. I was attracted to her and I could tell that she was too. After a few days of talking on WhatsApp, I finally plucked the courage to ask her out. She said yes and we decided to go for lunch. Lunch progressed smoothly and we made plans for a movie. I was very happy with the way things had turned out. After the movie, as I walked her back to her place, she launched into a tête-à-tête about her current boyfriend of three years. I was completely shocked because I had assumed her to be single. I dropped her home and couldn't believe what had happened. No brainer, never went out with her again.” -Krishna, 24 3. Sweet Nothingness: “I met her through mutual friends, and I was blown away by her personality. I asked her out. On the date, I was at my charming best: witty jokes, quick banter, making her laugh. All the works. During dessert, as I was doing my impression of Marlon Brando from “The Godfather” which she was immensely enjoying, I gestured a bit too excitedly and upset the entire hot chocolate sauce which the waiter had just arrived with onto my lap and my shirt. With an incredulous look as I glanced at her, while thoroughly embarrassed and valiantly trying to not scream as the warm liquid trickled down me, I found her laughing her head off. Till today, I can't see chocolate sauce the same way again.” -Shyam, 23 4. The Inception: “We met online. After chatting for a few months, we thought that going on a date was the inevitable next step. We started off quite good as the months of talking had helped us break the initial hesitation of being awkward. As we talked, the talk turned to sci-fi movies. We started debating on the possible end of “Inception”. We both had different views on the matter and we both thought we were correct. Matters started worsening as our theories didn't match. No one was backing down. We started arguing vehemently resulting in both of us leaving the restaurant in a huff. We haven't spoken since. Leonardo DiCaprio owes me an explanation.” -Sayantan, 25 5. Best Friend Forever: “I met this girl in the first year of college. She was cute and I liked her a lot. After much speculation, I finally asked her out. She seemed to be thrilled by the prospect. So was I. The date started normally, we were both extremely nervous and making small talk. Everyone around us could make out that the date wasn't going well. Still, we were trying to act casual. Suddenly, her best friend magically turns up at the same restaurant. I did not think much about it. The friend then proceeded to sit down with us (insert awkward look) and started interrogating me about myself. It was awkward. Then, my date abruptly started crying. The friend then looked at me as if I had done something terrible. They left without a word. I do not know what the matter was till today. Now, when we pass each other in the corridors we just pretend that the other doesn't exist.” -Adwait, 20 6. Beauty And The Beast: “There was this extremely beautiful colleague of mine. Exceptionally beautiful. We were both freshers in the company. Every time I saw her, I would become utterly self-conscious and act stupid. One fine day, she asked me out. I was over the moon. How could I be so lucky? Ridiculously happy, I prepared for the date. On the fateful day, I was a nervous wreck trying to do all the things right. She seemed genuinely interested in me. I was sweating profusely and thus, I politely excused myself to go to the washroom. When I came back, I was surprised to see that she was going through my phone, which I had left on the table. She had managed to unlock it and was viewing my photo gallery in a very nonchalant way. To top it off, she had also eaten more than half of my fries. I was stunned. She looked up and with a smile on her face said “Oh! You are back!”, gave me my phone back as if nothing had happened. My crush on her evaporated as quickly as it had come. Sometimes, appearances can be deceptive. And they can eat your fries too” -Alex, 27 What was your first date disaster? Let us know!
  13. A sportsman lives a very tricky life, as every once in a while, even if yours is the best team in the world, you tend to lose and lose big. We have seen that with Germany in the FIFA World Cup 2018, and now in cricket, we saw that with India's disastrous performance today. Scoring just 92 runs, they were completely demolished by New Zealand in the 4th ODI. Till date, India has had many low totals, but today's score of 92, made another record in itself, and that is of being the lowest total scored against New Zealand on their home soil. Here's a complete list of India's lowest totals ever: 1. New Zealand Vs India (Netmed ODI Series, 2019) © The week A Virat Kohli-less India couldn't do much against the fierce Kiwis in the 4th ODI of the Netmed Series, 2019. Clinching the series by 3-0 in the first three ODI's itself, might have been the reason for the dismantling of the Indian batting order by the home side. Making just 92 runs in 30.3 overs, the Men in Blue became prey to Trent Boult's vicious attack. 2. South Africa Vs India (India in South Africa, 2006) © YouTube There was a time when the whole world believed that if you bowl out Sachin Tendulkar from the Indian team, you might just win the match. And to be honest, that was somewhat true. We got to witness that against South Africa in 2006 when the Indians were chasing a total of 248 in Durban, and the moment Tendulkar got out on 35, the complete Indian line up collapsed before the lethal attack of Andre Nel and Jacques Kallis who restricted India to the score of 91, eventually losing the match by 157 runs. 3. India vs New Zealand (India-Sri Lanka-New Zealand Tri Series, 2010) © Reuters Carrying a young side to Sri Lanka for the Tri-Series in 2010, MS Dhoni would never have imagined this sort of distortion by the Kiwis. Once again chasing the total of 288, the Indian side relied on just a handful of experienced players they had on their side, counting Virender Sehwag, Yuvraj Singh and MS Dhoni himself. Once the top order was ripped apart, the tail-enders couldn't do much and the whole team got out on mere 88 runs. 4. Pakistan Vs India (India In Pakistan, 1978) © YouTube Let's take you back to 1970s, where legends like Sunil Gavaskar, Kapil Dev and Mohinder Amarnath, who were the masters of their craft, played some of their best innings. But wait, who said legends can't fail? Even this golden trio was toppled in fashion in a match against their arch-rivals, Pakistan in the year 1978. India, struggling to post a good total on the board, could only score 79 runs, with Sir Amarnath being the highest scorer with 34 runs to his name. Without a doubt, Pakistan comfortably won the match with 8 wickets to spare. 5. India Vs Sri Lanka (Sri Lanka in India, 1986) © Cricket Country Again from the '90s, another big loss came for the Kapil Dev-led team at Kanpur in 1986, and this time, it was Sri Lanka on the other end. Posting a reasonable total of 198, everyone thought that India would easily win the match considering the presence of Gavaskar, Ravi Shastri and many other decorated players who made the roster. But on the contrary, the Men in Blue had to face a horrifying loss after getting bundled up at just 78. 6. Australia Vs India (Benson & Hedges World Series Cup, 1981) © YouTube The Australian Tour has always been tough for India, but who thought that it would be so tough that the Indians would just be able to put a total of 63 on the board against the mighty Aussies. While the World Cup-winning team of 1983 was in the making, this defeat came as a wakeup call for the Indian side to pull up their socks. 7. India Vs Sri Lanka (Sharjah Trophy Final, 2000) © Reuters The worst defeat for the Indian side came in the Sharjah Trophy final against Sri Lanka in which, the dominating Sri Lankans posted a total of 299, with the highest individual score of 189 coming from Sanath Jayasuriya. On the other hand, India was wrapped up at a trifling 54. With RP Singh scoring the most number of runs from the Indian side (11), the rest of the scorecard looked worse than that of a gully cricket match (if there has been one).
  14. Girlfriends! Wondrous creatures, aren't they? They irritate you when you specifically ask them not to, just to tease you, wear your clothes which they swear are more comfortable than their own, make you watch their favourite series even though you hate it, eat the stuff you don't like, comfort you when you are down. At the end up the day, they do these things to show that they love you. via GIPHY Talking of series, the fictional land is full of intriguing characters who share their lives with us and we, in a way, share a part of our lives with them. They say art emulates life. Thus, when we see these characters have relationships, we think about our own relationships. We cried happy tears when Rachel came back to Ross instead of going to Paris, rejoiced when Jim finally got together with Pam, ugly-cried when Derek died and left Meredith alone. via GIPHY You are bound to have a crush on these TV ladies as well and idealize them in terms of your girlfriend and sometimes compare them in your mind. (Remember that they are just characters, they act the way the script demands.) At times, you might think that your girlfriend is the worst, probably after a fight and fantasize about how some couples on TV never fight. Well, everyone has an evil side. You, me. Even TV girlfriends! via GIPHY Everyone has their faults; flaws make us human and this is more apparent when we see it on TV. You do something that sets your partner off, and they do the same to you. One can hardly vouch for a couple who have never quarreled in their life.. via GIPHY People come with various traits; both good and bad. Being in a relationship will test your limits and how much you can find the good in the other person. So, what makes these ladies on TV transition from their beautiful dispositions into horrible girlfriends? Let's find out. (Note: This post is regarding why these characters make a bad girlfriend and does not mean that their respective significant others are faultless and innocent. It takes two to tango. :P ) 1. Penny- The Big Bang Theory: Beautiful, resourceful, quirky and sassy, Penny (Kaley Cuoco) “without a last name” is the quintessential girl-next-door on the surface. Based on the “dumb blonde” archetype, she captures Leonard's heart the moment she moves into the apartment opposite his. © CBS What makes her the worst girlfriend? Penny's sunshine demeanour is cast aside by her more dominant nature; Penny seems manipulative and doesn't shy away from making a fool out of others, using her charm and guiles, though she gets fooled quite a lot. Time and again, she uses Leonard's infatuation with her for her own good. Moreover, she seems to have little regard for his feelings and always makes fun of him, his job and his friends. She does not necessarily support his decisions concerning any aspect of their lives. via GIPHY Penny is also particularly nasty to his friends, tries to sweet-talk herself out of commitments and she makes Leonard put up with the slack. In the initial seasons, even though she doesn't specifically want to date Leonard, she sabotages his relationships so that she can have him when she wants and gets angry when Leonard stands up for himself. Even after getting married to Leonard, she reiterates that she has better options and he got lucky with persuasion, makes Leonard grovel for them to remain in a relationship. She also conveniently forgets the times Leonard has had her back when she messed up. 2. Carrie Bradshaw- *** And The City: Choice in shoes? Wonderful. Choices in men? Ghastly. As a person? Irritating. The opinionated and talented Carrie Bradshaw (Sarah Jessica Parker) is a resourceful journalist and witty writer but that doesn't change the fact that she is a horrible person when it comes to relationships. © Avery Pix What makes her the worst girlfriend? Carrie's most significant relationship on the show is with Mr. Big and Aidan Shaw. The biggest obstacle in any relationship she has, which Carrie is oblivious of, is that she is a narcissist; everything has to be about her. She doesn't seem to comprehend the feelings of the other person she is in a relationship with and self-sabotages everything when they fall into a pattern. She is completely unaware of what she wants about anything in her life (well, that might be true about every one of us); especially relationships! Carrie ends up with Mr. Big (no spoiler here) after nearly a decade of an on-again-off-again relationship with him. Till then, she tries to change him so that it suits her and throws a fit every time he doesn't comply; like forcing him to tell her that she is “the one”.(Mr. Big acts like a douchebag time and again, as I said, it takes two to tango.) via GIPHY She dates a bisexual guy and then shames him for his orientation by ditching him and has a long-drawn discussion about how bisexuality is not a real thing with her friends. Irony: She is apparently a *** columnist on the show. She starts dating Aidan and when things start going smoothly, she begins cheating on him by having an affair with Mr. Big (who is married and is not such a great person either) and then when Aidan finds out and forgives her, she breaks his heart again after agreeing to marry him and then freaking out at the last moment. Moreover, she makes Aidan buy her apartment and then feels bad for herself when he asks her to buy it back from him after their breakup. What else did you expect, Carrie? A free apartment? Her intelligence and vivacity are overshadowed by her worse traits. As a result, she comes off as selfish and paranoid; she refuses to part with her old clothes in order to make room for Aidan, she is obsessed with herself and also a bit of a snob, hardly bothering to think about her friends, even agrees to marry her gay best friend for a fortune (though good sense prevails at the end). 3. Rory Gilmore- Gilmore Girls & Gilmore Girls: A Year In The Life: The studious, rosy-faced, beautiful 16-year-old was a fresh respite from other characters on TV in the cable-dominated early 2000s. © Dorothy Parker Drank Here Productions With her beguiling charm and pretty face, Rory (Alexis Bledel) had a gaggle of guys waiting for her to say yes to a relationship. Add to it her rapid-fire, witty, pop culture reference-bombarded dialogue with mother Lorelai, and you get a hearty show with her being the best character in it. (I loved the character initially.) That is until Rory decided to ruin it all. Still, she was a fairly nice character until she started as a freshman at Yale and everything went downhill; not only did her clothes change but also her attitude and outlook towards life, especially relationships. Though the warning signs had always been there from her first relationship. What makes her the worst girlfriend? Rory is an ideal girlfriend but her bad side rears its head up with Dean; when he loves tells he loves her (who tries to force her to say “I love you”. Not cool, dude!) which she handles in an atrocious way, making it seem like she had little part in the break up. Provided, she is young and inexperienced at handling situations like these, Rory unknowingly plays the victim, unlike being the smart girl she is. She never tells anyone why they broke up until Lorelai finds out. via GIPHY She gets back with him and all seems well until bad boy Jess shows up in Stars Hollow and it starts Rory's transition into a weird girlfriend. She starts developing feelings for Jess and flirts with him all over town (eventually kissing him), making her boyfriend, Dean, feel insecure about their relationship. Instead of letting Dean go, she treats him badly; ignoring calls, not meeting him, not writing back and strings him along until “he” breaks up with her. Albeit in a funny way, she rags on Dean who is (nauseatingly) sweet and wants him to follow everything she says. Her timing is always off; she sleeps with Dean when he is married (both parties guilty) in a departure from her smart girl persona. The relationship is doomed from the start and she starts feeling claustrophobic. Enter douchey, rich boy Logan and Rory leaves Dean to run off with him and completely goes off-track; enticing Logan to steal a yacht, giving up on Yale, stop talking to her mother, becoming Horrid Henry's cousin. Then, when Logan cheats on her she becomes self-righteous and mad at him. No one likes it when it happens to them, eh, Rory? We return to Stars Hollow in the reunion and guess what? Rory has become a horrible person; she doesn't remember that she has a boyfriend of two years, Paul, (who is extremely forgettable; vouching for that is every other person on the show) and repeatedly cheats on him with Logan, who is now engaged. 4. Lily Aldrin- How I Met Your Mother: People might love her fire-brand spirit and red hair but one of the most problematic characters on HIMYM has to be Lily (Alyson Hannigan). Throughout the show, her character has no real growth; she starts off as an unlikable person and ends that way. Though it provides the required laughs, she comes off a bit too calculating for her own good. © CBS What makes her the worst girlfriend? She leaves Marshall and breaks off their engagement in the first season when things don't work out. She returns three months later and begs him to rekindle their romance because she fails in San Francisco. It is no argument that she loves him dearly but her way of showing it is abysmal. She has an astronomical credit card debt, yet she never tells Marshall this the whole time they are dating; she manipulates him into a corporate job even though he wants to work for the environment, to pay off her personal debts. via GIPHY She makes him take a large loan for a house which turns out to be crooked. She becomes self-righteous when people call her out on her behavior and breaks up with people at the slightest bit of confrontation, Marshall included. She also meddles with Ted's relationships in order to make her dream of the “Front Porch” come true. She makes it a point to make Marshall pay for his goof-ups, but she never seems to have any semblance of being wrong when it comes to her antics. Haughty and snarky, Lily Aldrin is the queen of worst girlfriends. She tries to micro-manage every aspect of her boyfriend's life and is a control freak. 5. Jackie Burkhart- That '70s Show: Jackie (Mila Kunis) is the stereotypical mean girl; rich, a cheerleader, kooky and beautiful. Jackie is Michael Kelso's (Ashton Kutcher) girlfriend is the beginning of the first season, with her shrill voice screaming “Michael” whenever she needs him to do something. © Carsey-Werner Distribution/Fox What makes her the worst girlfriend? Jackie constantly threatens Michael about breaking up with him if he does not agree with her. She uses Kelso's dumbness to makes him do all sorts of weird stuff. Adding to that, she is extremely materialistic and shallow (though to her credit she does not shy away from the fact) and keeps on hanging on to the relationship because it seems comfortable. Michael is no prize either and keeps cheating on her during their relationship. via GIPHY She then dates Hyde and redeems herself a bit; though being extremely difficult and manipulative in the beginning but regresses to her original money-crazy persona and spells dooms over the relationship. Fez, whom she ridicules every chance she gets, treats like a servant, walks all over and wants to cater to all her whims and fantasies is the person she ultimately ends up with, which is absurd. She is controlling, bossy, even bordering on physical violence if necessary, which qualifies her as one of the worst girlfriends of the series. 6. Piper Chapman- Orange Is The New Black: 'Orange Is The New Black' is an exemplary show and a great deal of its success is owed to its characters; Piper, Alex, Daya, Taystee, Red, et al. The most problematic character is Piper Chapman, portrayed by Taylor Schilling, the central focus of the show. Beautiful, Waspy and a goody-two-shoes at the beginning of the series, her transition into Litchfield's resident criminal queen is a journey to be seen. The only thing that doesn't change is her holier-than-thou attitude and the constant struggle to prove that she is good. © Lionsgate Television What makes her the worst girlfriend? Piper is gay; but to placate her parents and to some extent herself, she starts a relationship with Larry and is engaged to him before being incarcerated. She comes clean before going to jail and tells them about Alex, the girl with whom she had a relationship when she was a lesbian. She ends up in the same jail as Alex (Laura Prepon) and turns up cheating on Larry with Alex and doesn't own up to it when Larry asks her. All seems to go well between Alex and Piper, until Stella (Ruby Rose) shows up; new, exciting and dangerous. Alex gets dumped by Piper, because, why not? When you can have the honey, why worry about the comb? via GIPHY She gets angry when Polly and Larry hook up and does not forgive them even though she easily cheats as easily as they did. She dumps Stella as soon as she becomes the new IT girl in the prison, not to mention the face of white supremacy, and banishes Stella to the max a day before she is to be released as punishment for stealing. Then she rekindles her relationship with Alex after tricking her into getting arrested and keeps on making up and breaking up with her. After all this manipulation and falsifications, she worries and cries about not being liked or loved. Much drama? 7. Quinn Fabray- Glee: The unofficial poster girl of worst girlfriends, Quincy is a terrible girlfriend and possibly a worse human being. Putting Regina George to shame, she has it all and uses everything in her arsenal to get what she wants. Hot boyfriend? Check. Head cheerleader? Check. An unparalleled sense of revenge? Check. Check. Check. She is a lying, obsessed, mean girl to the core and pulls all the stops to be nasty to someone who apparently wrongs her. She is a bully but plays the victim. She does become a little better as the series progresses, but too little, too late! © 20th Century Fox Television What makes her the worst girlfriend? Sleeps with her best friend' s boyfriend. While drunk. While being the head of a celibacy club. Doesn't make her “Girlfriend of the Year”, does it? If that wasn't bad, she gets knocked up by Noah and tries to manipulate Finn into thinking that he is the father. Scheming, she constantly tries to break up Finn and Rachel. via GIPHY Also, she makes it a point to not let Finn join the New Directions because it would harm her popularity and queen bee status. She never loved Finn in the true sense, he was just her hot jock boyfriend. She comes across as a mean girlfriend; trying to fake a pleasant appearance on the surface for selfish reasons. She is a conceited princess with a penchant for torture. *Honorable Mention* Robin Scherbatsky- How I Met Your Mother: Robin (Cobie Smulders) is beautiful and sexy for sure. She is a lot of fun as well and one of the best, strongest female characters on TV! But there is a part of Robin which spells trouble. via GIPHY Don't get me wrong, I am completely in love with Robin as a character; she is a very relatable one and any guy would be lucky to have her as a girlfriend. The only problem is her agreeing to the concept of being a girlfriend. via GIPHY She seems to have a lot trouble adapting to the girlfriend persona. Maybe, because of the past histories of being best friends with her boyfriends; be it Ted or Barney. You see, she does not have a hard time being a bro and kicking back with scotch, cigars and guns (and hockey obviously). She tries very hard at being the dominant one in the relationship, controlling to a fault because she doesn't want to come across as vulnerable or needy. This becomes very apparent when she makes Ted give up all the belongings from his ex-girlfriends but doesn't have a problem with the dogs she keeps; a gift from her exes. This makes her an honourable mention in this company of girlfriends. If only she could give up a little bit of her control and try to be equals, she can become the best girlfriend out there. Your girlfriend is looking pretty level-headed and nice now, isn't she? Gives you some perspective. :P Well, you are welcome!
  15. Getting fit is difficult. It requires time, efforts, sacrifices, hard work, and dedication to get there. A lot of people dedicate years to the process, mostly as they end up doing all kinds of things and exploring shortcuts before learning the reality and trusting the process. As this road is often a difficult one and longer than most expect, it is reason enough that people need someone to look up to. Especially when they feel like they are fighting a losing battle and they need something to make them believe that there is sunshine at the end of the storm. It is when they turn to the media and start idolizing those who have made it, and quite naturally so. It is the same as all those who aspired to play cricket for the country idolized Sachin Tendulkar in some way or the other. But, the problem is that there are some of these fitness inspirations that are hurting people than helping them. Most of the time, they are not worth even the fitness, let alone the inspiration. Who are these people? 1) Actors Every now and then we have actors who undergo massive transformations and in just a matter of two to three months gain a lot of muscle or lose a lot of fat. Or better yet, manage to achieve both at the same time. I still remember the pictures of Christian Bale showing how he went from super skinny to buff for Batman in a matter of a few months. Let's understand that to undergo these massive transformations, these people use all kinds of assistance and aid. Mainly because their goal is to LOOK GOOD for a particular role! They do not care about doing it the right way or to do it in a healthy way. They just want to do it the quick way which more often than not is unhealthy. 2) Instagram Models (#Fitspiration) © Pixabay Just do a #fitspiration search on Instagram and you will get millions of pictures of massive dudes rocking fake tans, wearing singlets, having perfectly shaved chests rocking a single digit body fat percentage pretty much year round. The thing that most people forget is either: A. They are doing this to sell a lot of the sponsor's supplements to you and earn a commission. B. They are only showing you certain selective aspects of their lives. Special angles, special lighting, special effects, photoshopped images, etc. They will do it ALL to fool you into buying the magic supplements they sell. And add to your misery as well. 3) Bodybuilders © YouTube I may end up receiving some flak for this but it needs to be put out there. Bodybuilders are the worst of the fitness inspiration lot. Most of them have at some point confessed to drug use or to do certain extreme things to their bodies just so that they can appear a certain way and get on stage. It is unhealthy, especially with the sheer amount of drugs that they are putting in their bodies lately. They would go to any lengths just to appear a certain way discounting the havoc they are wreaking on the inside. And it is not uncommon to hear news about young bodybuilders dropping dead due to heart attacks or organ failures nowadays. Think wisely before you choose your fitness inspiration and more importantly, do it for yourself.

  16. I can't think of a better deal for men than women openly voicing out what they like and don't like. It's almost like you don't have to try too hard to figure out why women are mysterious, as long as they're vocal and if I have to give any advice to you lot, it's just going to be about how you should already know what women want, by the virtue of how they express themselves often. Don't get me yet? I stumbled upon this excellent compilation of 'women sharing their first date experiences' on Twitter and some of it is actually avoidable. It's only helpful for you because you're hearing it straight from the horse's mouth! © Pinterest A Twitter handle by the name of 'A Tribe Called Breast' asked some ladies to share their first date experiences and the ladies didn't stop telling since! Here, take a look and get some ideas, and the dos and don'ts in place! Ladies: tell me your worst date. — A Tribe Called Breast (@_ItsMissBre) 23 August 2018 A guy spent all of dinner telling me about his ex-girlfriends and how after each break-up he had to move out of their place and move back home. Then he asked how big my apartment was. https://t.co/XgbDwzzHhO — Danielle Sepulveres (@ellesep) 27 August 2018 Wow. Talk about a serial apartment inhabitant! Like seriously, why would you even bring up your ex girlfriends? That's one thing YOU should never do, unless of course she asks you point blank! Took me to a dinner where he didn't make reservations, so we couldn't get a table. Go to a different place where he proceeds to drink too much. On the way home asks me to get out two stops before my actual station to watch him pee into the train tracks. https://t.co/nLQ5Ecg0Kr — Natt à¸à¸²à¸£à¸¸à¸à¸£à¸±à¸à¸©à¸µà¸§à¸à¸¨à¹ (@nattgarun) 29 August 2018 Really, don't know what to say to this one except maybe plan your date better and don't drink like a thirsty goat on your first date? Why would you want to get drunk out of your mind instead of getting to know the woman you're on a date with? Oh and don't make her watch you pee? He picked me up on a Sunday morning. Thought we are going to have a breakfast date at a hotel. Ended up in the hotel's conference room where his church gathersð® Had to sit through a 2 hour church service ð¥ https://t.co/AL8br17vB2 — La Dolce Far Niente (@Onhwa86) 27 August 2018 Did I ever tell you about this one time I was on a date with a guy and he spent the whole evening trying to tell me about the goodness Christianity brings to people's lives, hoping I'd convert. He even tried to hand me some pamphlets. It was really weird. I mean what the fu** right? This one's exactly like that. Don't talk about religion on your first date. It really doesn't serve much of a purpose. © Pinterest Over coffee, he told me he was married but that his wife was "flexible". There was no second date. https://t.co/A20N8kGcl8 — Elizabeth (@historyinpearls) 29 August 2018 Uhh seriously? Don't pull this off. Ever. He talked about himself nonstop and only asked me two questions: 1) Was Michael Jackson guilty and 2) What was the point of the Dewey Decimal System? Then he got an emergency text about a fire in the chemistry lab he was supervising and invited me to come. HARD PASS. https://t.co/V6LUzTKJZ1 — Danielle Dreger (@DanielleDregerB) 28 August 2018 Okay guys, another reason why you may never get a second date is because all you did in the first date was talk about yourself and made the evening all about you and then just asked her to go home with you. I mean, why would she? Balance it out and ask relevant questions. Walked me to the bar, popped me down on a seat, said he was going for a shit, never came back. https://t.co/DC4aBoJbBH — Quim Jong-un (@sheikyerbouti_) 28 August 2018 Ouch. What a shitty excuse. © Twitter I showed up to meet a guy I'd only talked to online and the first thing out of his mouth was "You looked prettier in your pictures." Coincidentally it was also my shortest date. https://t.co/0vdA17mlnk — holly. (@hollydiggity) 28 August 2018 Yeaahhh, for all the 'blind daters' and people who meet online and then plan a date offline- if you don't like what you see, then be polite about it. He was a professional athlete who kept making sure I knew how impressive he was, and then told me in the car ON THE WAY to the restaurant, "There's a 90% chance I'm gonna sleep with you tonight." I guess he underestimated my 10% say in the matter. https://t.co/XlsKdTErvE — Kristin Butz (@TheRuralGaucho) 29 August 2018 This is just bad date ethics. Absolutely bad! Don't overestimate anything, ever! First Date: he took me home and we cooked/ate dinner with his mom and dad. https://t.co/jXBhnc2NOF — Kara McDowell (@karajmcdowell) 28 August 2018 Umm, why would you have a family dinner with your first date? What kind of a hurry are you in? Watched The Dark Knight in his room and he kept pausing it to check that I understood what was going on. Also lent me Sophie's Choice so that I would understand his degree better (he did philosophy) https://t.co/Zam06DkSGR — fre shavoc a do (@charlotteearney) 28 August 2018 I literally have no words except, don't underestimate the woman you're with, ever! © Thinkstock And here's 'Just Some Guy', acknowledging how 'wild' these stories are! the stories you all are sharing about worst dates are mad wild — just some guy (@b_eternal757) 23 August 2018 But seriously, if you're ever out on a first date with a woman, just be yourself, don't get too drunk or rude and underestimate her! Don't get ahead of yourself and certainly don't eat with your mouth open and always listen to the ladies!
  17. Samsung currently is the world's largest manufacturer of mobile phones and has shipped more than 78 million phones in Q1 of 2018. This is followed by Apple, who shipped more than 52 millions units. While Samsung has managed to maintain its supremacy, a new report by Blancco states that Samsung is at the top of the list of failures among Android makers, with the failure rate of a whopping 27.4 percent. The report mainly focusses on the failure rates of mobiles from Samsung devices and iPhones. While iPhones are found to be prone to failure at some extent, Samsung handsets have been found much more unreliable, when it comes to failure rate. © BCCL According to a report titled 'The State of Mobile Device Repair', Android phones have nearly 60 percent of the market but are more likely to fail than their iOS counterparts. Samsung devices are most often submitted for repairs and have a failure rate of 27.4 percent, followed by Xiaomi with 14.2 percent. The iPhone 6 and iPhone 6S are the worst performing iOS devices and they have experienced a failure rate of 22 percent and 16 percent respectively. The iPhone X has a failure rate of just 3 percent though. Even though the failure rate of the iPhone 6 is quite high, it is still considerably lower than the highest failure rate of Samsung devices. © Blancco Blancco also notes that recent software updates have also adversely affected the battery lifespan of both the iPhone 6 and 6S. Huawei is the world's thirst largest manufacturer and has managed to keep its failure rate at 8 percent. The Samsung Galaxy S7 has been ranked the worst performing Android device followed by the S7 Edge. © BCCL About 34 percent of these issues are related to performance in Android phones followed by the camera at 14 percent. On the other hand, Bluetooth issues are at 9 percent in iOS followed by WiFi at 8 percent. The data also reveals that 74 percent of iPhones and iPads are running Apple's latest iOS 11 software, while 52 percent of Android phones are running Google's Nougat OS. © iFixit The data and accumulated result from Blancco is based on the “data collected from iOS and Android devices brought into wireless carriers and device manufacturers for Blancco testing and erasure”.
