  1. The nation lost over 40 bravehearts last month, when a JeM suicide bomber rammed explosives-laden car into a CRPF bus in Pulwama, Jammu and Kashmir. People haven't forgotten that terrorist attack, nor will they ever. Post Pulwama, people from across the world are coming together to wipe tears of the family members of the martyred jawans. © Reuters The country was painted red last month with blood, and now when the festival of colours is here, the CRPF has decided that there will be no 'official celebrations' of Holi this year in the force, to pay respect to the jawans martyred in Pulwama. CRPF Director General (DG) RR Bhatnagar, said this during an event to mark the 80th raising day of the force in Gurgaon. © Reuters Reportedly, the DG also said that in order to better equip the troops during a combat, they are obtaining advanced weapons and gadgets that include Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs), light bullet proof jackets, rifles, ground penetrating radars and signal jammers gunshot locators. In fact, while paying tribute to the personnel who lost their lives, the CRPF chief also said that the force is creating a 'mobile app' to provide help to the families of martyred jawans.
  2. Let's face it, it has not been the best of days for the Chelsea Football Club in the recent past. After facing a crushing 6-0 defeat at the hands of Pep Guardiola's Manchester City a couple of weeks ago, the Blues saw another internal drama take the centre stage when goalkeeper Kepa Arrizabalaga decided to openly dishonour his manager Maurizio Sarri during the Carabao Cup final against the Citizens. However, it seems as if the Football Gods had had enough fun with the struggling Chelsea FC and decided to provide them with some sort of reimbursement. In came Tottenham Hotspur Right Wing-Back Kieran Trippier. In an English Premier League match up early this morning, Tottenham Hotspur (EPL Rank 3) went head to head against Chelsea FC (EPL Rank 6) and lost 0-2 to the Blues in spectacular fashion. However, a lot of credit for Chelsea's win must go to the Hotspur defender Trippier who did exactly the opposite of what his job description said he does: defend his side of the goal. Trippier. pic.twitter.com/bNQmN3aeyK — Busonzio (@Busonzio) February 27, 2019 When the Chelsea forwards decided to make a late-game push for another goal after Pedro's excellent strike in the 57th minute, the ball tumbled down to Trippier with no Blues player in his vicinity. The 28-year-old then decided to pass the ball to his keeper Hugo Lloris (at least that's what we think he wanted to do). Typical defender move, right? However, what Trippier did not realise was the fact that Lloris was running right towards him with the net completely unguarded. His skilful and unbelievably accurate shot thus placed the ball right in the bottom left corner of the goal post. Within microseconds of sending the ball for an own goal, the British footballer had realised what a mess he had created, as his keeper stood still, shaking his head in disbelief. The fiasco brought forward a five-year-old tweet the footballer had put up. “Come on Chelsea,” he had said one year before he had signed with Tottenham in 2015. Hotspur fans and well, fans of football in general were quick to jump on to the glorious internet to roast the unfortunate defender with the best memes they could think of: 𤣠Kieran Trippier. ð¤¦‍âï¸ð¤¦‍âï¸ð¤¦‍âï¸ #CHETOT pic.twitter.com/R6hLmoaOLD — Sky Bet (@SkyBet) February 27, 2019 Kieran Trippier has always been a Chelsea fan pic.twitter.com/iFAr2bvwr5 — The Futbol Sphere (@TTOFz) February 27, 2019 Trippier has better 1v1 finishing than Morata. #CHETOT pic.twitter.com/eysZBdTvw4 — Naman Khandelwal (@yungnaman) February 27, 2019 Players that need to leave the club this Summer: Trippier Ben Davies Lamela Aurier Dier We can't be a top tier contender having these kind of players. — Patrick Souza (@PatrickRSouza) February 28, 2019 Nobody: Kieran Trippier: pic.twitter.com/MpWUxGI13n — Steven (@SPURSWlN) February 28, 2019 The internet never forgets…but you know that, right?
  3. The Apple Watch has been dominating the wearables market ever since it was announced and is now considered the best smartwatch there is. The Apple Watch has added many useful features over the years, however, it lacked one feature that has been absent for a while. © Pillow The Cupertino giant is rumoured to be testing sleep tracking securely and according to insiders who spoke to Bloomberg and detailed Apple's plans. The Apple Watch is expected to launch the sleep tracking feature in 2020 and will essentially also kill third-party apps that are currently offering the same feature on the Apple Watch. Currently, apps like Pillow and Sleep++ offer a similar feature where it tracks a user's sleeping patterns and habits. Smartwatches that tend to have a sleep tracking feature usually last for days due to a larger battery. This will be a major hurdle for Apple to overcome, as the Apple Watch can last only for a day on a full charge. Apple may have to outfit the 2020 Apple Watch with a bigger battery or add a low power setting for speed mode. © Beddit Apple recently bought Beddit, a company that makes sleep tracking devices as well as apps for iOS and the Apple Watch. The company also launched a sensor strip that can be placed underneath a bed seat to track sleeping patterns and snoring habits. Sleep-tracking has been one of the most requested features by Apple Watch users, however, Apple will have to either increase the battery capacity or come up with a different solution in order to run this feature. We can only be sure when the new Apple Watch will be announced this year and its capabilities and see if it hints at the upcoming feature with a larger battery or a new power saving mode.
  4. MWC (Mobile World Congress) is in full swing right now and more than 1,00,000 telecom excutives, engineers, and enthusiasts are attending the trade show. While 5G technology has been making progress over the years and is expected to arrive soon, foldable phones have grabbed everyone's attention this year. Every phone maker is keen on releasing a phone with "foldable" or "bendable" display. With all the foldable phones launching left and right, this month has been a lively one for smartphones. For years we've heard Samsung tease its work on bendable displays, and are finally seeing it fructify. Here's a list of all the cool foldable phones announced this year at MWC. 1. Samsung Galaxy Fold © Samsung The Galaxy Fold literally folds in half like a book to use as a phone with a 4.6in screen on the outside, and unfolds to reveal a large 7.3in screen to use as a tablet on the inside. It comes with 12GB RAM and 512GB storage, along with six cameras: three on the back, two on the big screen and one on the front screen for selfies when the phone is closed. The Fold has a powerful and smooth hinge with hidden gears, a split battery and a new software system called app continuity that switches between the screen as you open the phone. The new device will be released on 26th April in the US and 3rd May in Europe, after nearly a decade in the making. It comes with a price tag of US$ 1,890 (Rs 1,34,000) and is a crucial product for Samsung as it tries to maintain its supremacy. 2. Huawei Mate X © BCCL Following Samsung's lead, Huawei unveiled its ultra-premium folding screen phone and enthusiasts can't stop admiring its design. It has a flexible OLED display that covers both the front and back of the device and which unfolds outwards to become an eight-inch tablet screen. Huawei's Mate X has just one screen on the outside. It features a fingerprint scanner for authentication, 8GB of RAM, and 512GB of storage. The large battery is capable of charging at 55W and Huawei calls this SuperCharge technology. The company claims it is the world's fastest 5G foldable phone and that its position as an equipment manufacturer gives it an advantage. The phone has been priced at US$ 2,299 (Rs 1,63,000) and will be available later this year. 3. OPPO Foldable Phone © OPPO While Samsung and Huawei have announced they'll be mass producing the phone soon, OPPO is taking a step back and analysing the market response. For now, the company hasn't even named it and it's still technically a concept. We've already seen multiple patents suggesting OPPO has enough research and development in place to actually launch a phone when needed. The company did show off a few pictures of the concept and it looks very identical to Huawei's Mate X. The design language is similar and we expect OPPO to add its own set of unique offerings. The brand has been making great strides in mobile camera technology, and we'd love to see a photography centric foldable phone from them. 4. Nubia Alpha © Nubia This is a combination of a watch and a phone, and Nubia likes to call it the world's first foldable wearable. It sports a 4-inch 960x192 OLED screen, has 1GB RAM, and 8GB internal storage. The battery is sufficient enough to last a day or two. It supports all standard smartwatch features like activity tracking, sleep sense, and heart rate sensor. Adding to this, it has an eSIM that can be used for calls, text, and data on the go. The OS is custom built on Android and supports voice controls, air gestures, and other intuitive controls. It retails for €549 (Rs 44,000) and will be available from the third quarter of this year. 5. TCL Displays © TCL TCL has a licence for making BlackBerry and Alcatel branded phones, and it has shown off a host of bendable displays that are cheaper to make and could be a part of many upcoming phones. The company is calling its folding mechanism "DragonHinge" and is being secretive about the working or construction. The DragonHinge helps in bridging the two screens together to create a foldable phone, and it's paired with flexible AMOLED displays from TCL's sister company, CSOT. With its technology, TCL wants to bring down the cost of making a foldable phone since both Samsung and Huawei cost a couple thousand dollar.
  5. Aero India is a biennial event happening in India since 1996, and the program has slowly gained a lot of momentum. These trade shows are a perfect platform for companies to show-off their offerings, and in a rapidly developing market like India, the possibilities are limitless. While India has shared deeper roots with the then-USSR in terms of defence and aviation acquisitions, the tides are slowly turning. India is among the top defence equipment importers in the world, and with nascent domestic aviation manufacturing, targeting India as a potential customer is natural. For the aviation geeks out there, the show is a mesmerising experience. Not only does it offer newer civilian aircraft, but also demonstrates the capability of India's armed forces. This year, more than fifty aircrafts were on static display at Aero India. Aerobatic performances were held by numerous aircrafts, and we've listed down our favourites. 1. Dassault Rafale © MensXP / Shivam Vahia The Rafale has become a household name in India now, but keeping aside the political controversies, it is among the most capable multirole fighter planes out there. It can perform air superiority, reconnaissance, ground support, as well as nuclear deterrence. The French Air Force primarily operates it, and Indian Air Force has placed an order of 36 aircraft. © MensXP / Shivam Vahia The French Air Force (regionally called Armée de l'air) brought a couple of their Rafale's at Aero India, and they undoubtedly attracted the most people. The delta wing design provides higher maneuverability and the jet can reach a maximum speed of Mach 1.8 (1,900 km/h). It can also go as slow as 213km/h and take off as well as land on aircraft carriers. It is a symbol of French engineering and carries forward the legacy of Dassault's Mirage 2000 jets. 2. Sukhoi 30MKI © MensXP / Shivam Vahia It is a 4.5-generation air superiority aircraft developed by Russia and India has more than 250 of them in service. With state of the art avionics and thrust vectoring nozzles, it can perform a cobra manoeuvre in which it suddenly raises the nose momentarily to the vertical position and slightly beyond. This lets it reduce air speed instantly, providing an edge in air-to-air combat. © MensXP / Shivam Vahia The Indian variant can carry a BrahMos supersonic missile and employs a variety of weapons for ground-based offensive as well. It can also fly at double the speed of sound and pick up enemy at ranges in excess of 200kms. 3. LCA Tejas © MensXP / Shivam Vahia It is an indigenously developed aircraft and the first squadron was raised in July 2016. The complete structure is made of composite materials to reduce weight and increase performance. Just like the Rafale, it has a delta wing design for increased maneuverability. The air show depicted its exceedingly high rate of climb along with sharp turns to provide an edge in air-to-air combat. It features a complete glass cockpit along with a heads-up display and fly by wire technology for simpler handling. Aero India 2019 dazzled when Tejas rose to the sky, thundering amidst the much hyped Rafale and staple warhorse Sukhoi. 4. C17 Globemaster III © MensXP / Shivam Vahia Transport aircrafts like the C17 were another spectacular sight. United States Air Force brought their giant from Pearl Harbour, along with the P-8I Poseidon. The plane is made by Boeing and features four engines that enable it to carry more than 77,000 kgs of cargo. © MensXP / Shivam Vahia The plane has multiple roles and can perform troop drop, strategic airlifting as well as relief operations. The Indian Air Force currently has 10 of these and they play a crucial role in maintaining logistics supply to the remote parts of the country. 5. Airbus A330neo © MensXP / Shivam Vahia The Airbus A320neo have become a common sight in India thanks to a huge operational fleet of IndiGo, GoAir, Vistara, and Air India. The A330 is a wide-body aircraft that can carry up to 400 people in a single class configuration. The "NEO" stands for New Engine Option and new Rolls Royce Trent 7000 engines are extremely efficient in terms of operating costs. So far, only three have been built and the first scheduled flight of the A330 will be operated to Mumbai. The cockpit looks very similar to the A350 and the two share a lot of common design elements.
  6. Anyone who follows Jim Sarbh on social media, knows very well that this man has his very own, special brand of aesthetic that only he can carry off. His outfits are wonderfully weird, and strangely artistic. It's not everyone's cup of tea, but it sure does exude confidence, charm, and most importantly, originality. He just proved it once again by attending an award ceremony wearing a very special black suit, that we think is the best red carpet outfit we have seen this year. Take a look. © Viral Bhayani Here is why we think that this outfit is special. 1. It takes skill to wear a suit without a tie or a bow-tie, and making it look equally fancy. Jim's black Mandarin collar shirt, buttoned all the way up, is doing that effortlessly. © Viral Bhayani 2. When was the last time you saw someone rock high-waisted pants on the red carpet, that too as a part of a suit? The high waist, along with the belt extension from the jacket, is making it look like a runway-ready piece. © Viral Bhayani 3. Usually, tapered pants are always preferred on a red carpet, because it makes you look sharper. But Jim isn't one to follow the beaten track, of course. He chose a super relaxed pair of pants with a magnificent fall, that makes him look like the fashion royalty. © Viral Bhayani 4. Look at the jacket. The collar lapel is one of the most unusual lapels we have ever seen, and there is a belt extension that goes around in layers, and then falls on the side, making it look like a tie-up belt. Surreal, we say. © Viral Bhayani This is what we call effortlessly innovative styling, while keeping it subtle yet classy.
  7. Tom Holland has done it again! And, if your mind didn't automatically go to giving spoilers right now, I'm sorry but you're not a true Marvel fan. Tom, along with Mark Ruffalo, are truly the best and the worst because of their tendency to give out spoilers. It's hilarious and even they know how much they screw up. Mark has reached a point where he's the one joking about it and was even fake fired by the Russo Brothers. And well, Tom is just Tom. View this post on Instagram Lmao same. #CommentsByCelebs A post shared by Comments By Celebs (@commentsbycelebs) on Jan 18, 2019 at 6:43pm PST But unfortunately, this is not the kind of spoiler he's given this time. Apparently, an old interview of him promoting 'Avengers: Infinity War' with Benedict Cumberbatch has resurfaced for a very important reason, as it basically confirmed a theory everyone already knew about. We knew that quantum realm will play an important part in the upcoming final Avengers movie, what with Scott Lang stuck there alone at the end of 'Ant Man And The Wasp' and then somehow appearing in the first trailer of 'Endgame', but obviously, Marvel will never confirm it. But thankfully, Tom did, and he did it before even 'Infinity War' released. Coming back to the interview and the unassuming spoiler, when both the actors were asked that out of the two, who flubbed the most lines, Benedryl Cucumber named himself but was Tom was quick to defend him. Tom said, “He has the most difficult lines, though. He has to talk about so much Quantum Realm... stuff. I just have to talk about, 'Yeah man, that's awesome!' So mine's easy, but his is all so difficult.” Well, back then a lot of people might have thought that it was an 'Infinity War' spoiler, but now we know Doctor Strange didn't mention quantum realm even once in that movie. This can only mean one thing, Doctor Strange is obviously coming back and he could also be the one to save Ant Man. Moreover, it seems like the quantum realm is the answer to all of the OG Avengers' problems and it will help undo Thanos' snap, and all the destruction it caused, and bring back all the 'dusted' characters. I can't stress this enough, but honestly, April 27th cannot come soon enough.
  8. The much-awaited trailer of 'Badla' starring Amitabh Bachchan and the super talented Taapsee Pannu is finally out. The thriller looks like one hell of a gripping watch and promises a power-packed performance. This is the duo's second powerful outing after wowing the audience in 'Pink'. Taapsee has already proved her mettle in acting with her stupendous performance as Rumi in 'Manmarziyaan' and now with 'Badla', it looks like she's raised the bar even higher for both her fans and herself as well. © Red Chillies Entertainment The trailer begins with a powerful quote “maaf kar dena, har baar sahi nahi hota”, spoken in the sonorous voice of Mr Bachchan himself, who plays a lawyer yet again in this movie. The movie is directed by Sujoy Ghosh and is backed by SRK's Red Chillies Entertainment. The trailer is already garnering rave reviews on social media. Gripping trailer of #Badla is out. Do watch it ! #sujoyghosh ka super thrilling dhamaka hai! @taapsee aur amitabhbachchan sir ka kamaal Abhinay.

  10. We find love in the strangest of places. All while a seemingly unthreatening person manages to disarm us with that one look or smile casually thrown our way, which leaves our heart craving for more, so much more! The arena of online dating happens to be one such space where most of us venture into without any set expectations of what might come our way. That is mostly because this entire scene of online dating bears an air of mystery and suspense around it - a sort of a thrill that has succeeded in luring even a few “hermits” around us. You never know who you will meet in this virtual world, and even if you think you like the person you behold on the screen going by their bio, likes-dislikes and hobbies et al., you cannot be too sure unless you meet them up close and see for yourself if the two of you are worth another shot. Souvik Thakur Sure, this might be true in 99% of the cases, though there still exist a few who get so lucky with their online dates, that they end up signing the deal of spending an entire lifetime with one another. Such is the story of Souvik and Upasana, who met each other on an online dating website, and so fiery was their chemistry from the very onset, that the couple ended up marrying each other within a year of their first official date! It all began in late 2017, or more specifically 22nd October 2017 as Upasana would point out when the two first found out about each other on an online dating platform. Souvik is quick to add that, “it was her smile that caught my attention,” and he didn't waste any time in getting in touch with Upasana after that. “It was love at first sight (for me), even though we were living in two different cities then. I was in Delhi, while she was in Kolkata,” adds Souvik. Remembering that fateful night, Upasana recalls, “I remember that Sunday. I had a night recess and after I woke up, I saw a notification of his request. After reading his message, I shared my phone number. Within a second he called me, and we started talking. He spoke for an hour and by the end of it, he proposed me for marriage.” Souvik Thakur We know, that almost sounds like a Japanese bullet train of dating on the move. But you know what, in the matters of the heart, when you know, you know. Whether it is a matter of knowing someone for an hour, a year or even ten years for that matter, you simply know it when you find 'the one'. However, we wonder, if their first virtual meeting was so zippy, imagine all the fire alarms that must have gone off when the two met each other for the first time, for real! You guessed it, for both Souvik and Upasana, their first date remains one of the greatest highlights of their relationship so far. It was 25th December 2017 when they finally met in person after constantly being in touch for a little over two months. While Souvik recalls the day for their exploration of the City of Joy, eating and shopping their hearts out and making memories together, it was much more special for Upasana. Souvik Thakur “It was 25th December and he had come down from Delhi to meet me. Naturally, it was special for me. We met at Esplanade, the heart of Kolkata. Then we went to Princep Ghat. After spending some quality time on the bank of river Ganges, we went to taste Biryani from Kolkata's famous Biryani shop. Then he surprised me by gifting me a yellow-green from a famous boutique,” shares Upasana. The saree, as Souvik tells us, was a gift to celebrate their first date. And they say men are not romantic and thoughtful enough. Anyhow, that's definitely one memorable first date the two had, won't you agree? However, from the numerous memories the two share between them, for Souvik one of the most unforgettable ones is when the two spent some quiet time alone in each other's company on the terrace at his place - “(the) terrace is a very special place for me. I love to read, write, sing on the terrace. Finally, I took her to my special place in the house,” recalls Souvik. Our man here had finally found the woman to share his special place with, and we all know that's a big commitment all by itself, even though many women don't know it at the moment. But since things were already moving in the fifth gear for the couple since the beginning, the real deal was never too far behind. Souvik Thakur Soon after their first meeting, Souvik couldn't wait to take the next big step. He had all the plans laid out. But like it is usually in the case of love, things don't come easy. Sure enough, Souvik had a hurdle to move past before he could claim his lady love, and make her his for the next 'seven lifetimes'. Since Souvik was living in Delhi for work, it meant that for Upasana getting married would be a lot more than just tying the knot. So when Souvik popped the question, Upasana couldn't accept the proposal instantly, even when she wanted to. “I would have said yes, but couldn't. Since he lived in Delhi for the sake of his job, and I didn't want to relocate from my hometown Kolkata, I clearly told him so. He was very disheartened, but tried to convince me to make the move. After 15 days, he succeeded. I agreed to move to Delhi.” Once this was taken care of, things picked up speed and their families got involved. The date for the wedding was set and finally, on 2nd December 2018, the couple got hitched. Even though most things happened in a blur in their relationship, married life has come with its own share of lessons and experiences for the couple. Souvik Thakur According to Upasana, their journey from bachelorhood to being married has changed their perspective about relationship and love. As a married couple, they are becoming more and more responsible with every passing day. Even Souvik agrees that the relationship has taught him to choose his battles wisely, adjust and compromise where necessary and take important decisions keeping each other in mind. However, with all things said and done, the newlyweds believe that their relationship has taught them to love selflessly and accept each other's quirks. “We are two very much different people. She is loud and expressive, whereas I am soft and calm. But we love to eat, travel & listen to music together. These are the binding factors of our relationship and our lives”, says Souvik. Souvik Thakur For Upasana, however, the most unique quality of her husband is that “he is a very good human being, funny and he is very passionate towards his work.” The couple may be completely opposite in nature and personality type, but these traits help to balance their relationship and add depth to it. Married for just two months today, the journey so far has been a revelation for the couple in a lot of ways. Not only are they getting to know each other more deeply, but they are also evolving as individuals as they take on this journey called life together.
  11. Opens Instagram Sees a picture of a guy with a six-pack abs The bio reads Fitness Influencer/Lifetime Natural Checks posts All ab shots Closes Instagram and feels bad about self. How often have you found yourself doing this? See, going on a diet to get abs is not a bad thing at all. Losing fat generally is healthy for you and putting in the work to get lean is rewarding. But there is a difference between lean and shredded. Let me break it down for you: . Lean and athletic - 8 to 14% body fat . Shredded - Below 8% body fat The problem is that there are these enhanced and drugged bodybuilders who keep posting pictures of themselves looking shredded with rock-hard abs all year round, making you feel bad about yourself, even when you are lean. You are in a constant battle against yourself to stay shredded all year round like them. If you are building a physique without using any drugs for assistance (aka anabolic steroids), here are five reasons why trying to be shredded year round is plain stupid: © Pinterest 1. Your Testosterone Levels Will Take A Hit Dieting to a very low body fat percentage impacts your testosterone levels. Your hormones dip. It will impact your recovery, mood, and sexual health negatively. The reason guys on anabolics do not face this problem is them taking the hormones externally. They inject testosterone in supra-physiological doses on a weekly basis. Natural testosterone levels do not mean shit to them. 2. Constant Hunger Low body-fat means your hunger and satiety hormones are at a whack. Your leptin or satiety hormone is at an all-time low and your ghrelin or hunger hormone is at an all-time high. You are in a constant bad mood and cranky all the time. People around you do not like this side of you as well. 3. Too Restricted You will have to micro-manage every single meal that goes into your body to stay shredded. You will have to count every macro, weigh every food item, completely cut out every delicious food from your diet to be shredded. After a point, this becomes super stressful. You cannot focus on other things in life. You will be food obsessed. 4. Cannot Make Gains To gain muscle, you need to be in a calorie surplus and gain weight slow and steady. You will gain body fat. To be shredded and maintain your abs, you will need to be in a constant caloric deficit or at best, at your maintenance calories. As you see, these are two sides of a coin. You cannot have both. It is one or the other. Again, enhanced guys get bigger taking steroids is the hormones injected externally. © Pinterest 5. Body Image Issues A lot of well-known bodybuilders and fitness models have come out and spoken about this. Once you see your body look a certain way and you always desire to look that way, the obsession takes an ugly turn. A lot of athletes have admitted to being in a state of depression due to this. Attempting to stay shredded all year round is not just harmful to your physical health but also your mental health.

  13. Yes, the World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) asked the Indian fans to vote for Mahendra Singh Dhoni to make an appearance in the show's iconic pay-per-view, the Royal Rumble. The Rumble is one of the most watched and loved events of WWE's calendar year and is known for bringing in the 'who's who' of the business to the organisation or help the legends of the show that were out due to injuries or bad run with the crowd, make a comeback. However, this year, WWE tried to make something a lot bigger happen, especially for the millions and MILLIONS ('The Rock' reference) of their Indian fans, by putting up a vote to call Indian cricket team's MS Dhoni to make a Royal Rumble appearance this year. - Countdown to 1ï¸â£0ï¸â£ - Cue the music ð¶ - Surprise entry to the rumble... @msdhoni India, do you want to see our very own Mahi enter the #RoyalRumble match this Monday? — WWE (@WWEIndia) January 23, 2019 This innovative social media stunt follows a tweet uploaded by WWE superstar Paul Heyman who is the manager and spokesperson for wrestler, Brock Lesnar. The viral tweet was a 'not so subtle' jab at Cricket World Cup by Paul Heyman who jokingly asked for royalties as the former paraphrased his tagline 'Eat, Sleep, Conquer, Repeat' which he uses to promote Lesnar. My most (in)sincere compliments to @cricketworldcup for promoting the amazing @msdhoni by paraphrasing my mantra for @WWE #UniversalChampion @BrockLesnar #EatSleepConquerRepeat. Our royalties may be paid in cash, check, stock or cryptocurrency. https://t.co/sGtIALzso1 — Paul Heyman (@HeymanHustle) January 18, 2019 Obviously, this was an attempt to promote the 2019 Royal Rumble in India which took place on Sunday evening and WWE seems to have struck the right chord with the Indian audience who not only voted but also replied with some hilarious tweets: @msdhoni is more of a bigger name than any wwe wrestler... He is worshiped by the millions & millions of his Fan Believe that..coz that's the bottom line..... — Sanjeev Jaiswal (@sj0007) January 25, 2019 WWE and heyman talking about Mahi is the best thing on Twitter ð — ACHIN (@achin_17) January 25, 2019 YES!

  14. As the viral '10 Year Challenge' continues to take the world by storm, more and more celebrities are coming forward and sharing their then-and-now pictures from 2009 and how they today in 2019. Actor Akshay Kumar is the recent addition in the list of people to take this #10YearChallenge. He also took this opportunity to share an exciting 'Good News' with his fans. Wondering what the news is? Well, it's 'Good News'. Confused? Actor Akshay Kumar has a lot of interesting projects lined up and 'Good News' is one of them, which also stars actress Kareena Kapoor Khan. Eros International Akshay Kumar and Kareena were last seen together in 2009 in 'Kambakkht Ishq' (technically 'Gabbar Is Back' but only for a few scenes) and now they are coming together once again for 'Good News' and there couldn't have been a better way than the #10YearChallange to announce the same. View this post on Instagram 2009 to 2019, the #GoodNews is that not much has changed, or so we hope ð First day of shoot it is, do send in your best wishes ðð» #10YearChallenge #KareenaKapoorKhan @karanjohar @apoorva1972 @raj_a_mehta @dharmamovies #CapeOfGoodFilms @shashankkhaitan A post shared by Akshay Kumar (@akshaykumar) on Jan 22, 2019 at 11:07pm PST He shared the picture on social media with the caption, "2009 to 2019, the #GoodNews is that not much has changed, or so we hope. The first day of the shoot it is, do send in your best wishes. #10YearChallenge." Kareena's friend and make-up artist Mickey Contractor too shared a picture and wrote, "Good News!!!! The star and her ENTOURAGE." View this post on Instagram Good News!!!! The star and her ENTOURAGE â¤ï¸ A post shared by Mickey Contractor (@mickeycontractor) on Jan 22, 2019 at 7:50pm PST Directed by Raj Mehta and produced by Karan Johar, 'Good News' also stars Kiara Advani and Diljit Dosanjh. The movie is expected to release on September 6.
  15. Video game revenue has been on the rise for the past few years and it reached a new peak of $43.8 billion. That's 18% up from previous year and has surpassed the projected total global box office number for movies. The numbers were released by the reliable NDP group and Entertainment Software Association. In fact, we predicted this over two years ago as games like GTA V, Fortnite, Fifa 19, PUBG and others are literally taking over the world. The increase in Video Games revenue could be attributed to a variety of factors. Free-to-play games such as Fortnite, PUBG Mobile and even AAA games have implemented micro-transactions in their games that may have resulted in an 18% revenue increase. In fact, Fortnite made almost $3 billion in profit last year. The same could be said about PUBG as the game also managed to rake in a $1 billion in revenue in 2018. Last year, it was projected that global box office revenue from around the world would hit $41.7 billion, according to comScore data. In fact, Video game revenues also surpass streaming services such as Netflix and Amazon Prime where it is estimated to rake in $28.8 billion. Reed Hastings, CEO of Netflix said in a shareholder letter “We compete with (and lose to) Fortnite more than HBO,” the company's shareholder letter stated. “When YouTube went down globally for a few minutes in October, our viewing and signups spiked for that time…There are thousands of competitors in this highly fragmented market vying to entertain consumers and low barriers to entry for those with great experiences.” According to te NPD group analyst Mat Piscatella, revenue in video games comes from a variety of sources i.e. hardware sales, micro-transactions, digital and physical game sales and mobile gaming. With keeping trends in mind, the video game revenue will steadily increase in 2019 and 2020 thanks to new consoles launching soon and blockbuster games like Anthem, The Division 2, and Death Stranding are on the horizon.

  16. It's a new year, and a new beginning. And the possibilities are endless for you and your community. It’s an exciting time to be leading an online community with Invision Community - whether you’re starting out or switching over - and the new year is the perfect opportunity to start anew. How are you celebrating the new year with your community? What are your community goals for 2019? To kick off the new year, I’ve outlined guidance for several types of communities, whether you’re just starting out or you’re looking to take your community to the next level. New Community Are you a new community or looking to start one? You’re in the best position because you have a blank slate and everything is possible. Invest in a formative experience during your first year of defining your community’s purpose. What are your community’s mission, goals, and objectives? What is your competitive advantage against other similar communities or are you developing a new niche? How are you going to develop content programming, site features, or digital services in support of that advantage? What is your marketing plan to attract new users? Who is your core base of users, and what’s your plan to cultivate your first set of superusers? What is your budget to create a sustainable plan for hosting? Interest Community Are you a hobbyist with an established community of passion? Your community is a labor of love for you, and while it can feel like you’re pouring your heart and soul into it on a daily basis, it can be refreshing to take a step back and take stock of your community’s purpose, engagement goals, and how you want to lead in 2019 through fresh eyes. What’s your plan to create more emotionally-driven storytelling in your community? How are you going to deepen your tribal connection to users and between users? How can you incorporate member feedback into your New Year’s resolutions through polls, surveys, and member insights? How are you building a scalable community that leverages automation, staff, and user generated content to achieve your objectives? What are your engagement metrics year over year for 2018, and what is your projection for 2019 metrics like active members, online activity, best answers, and other user targets? How are you going to achieve those engagement metrics through initiatives like new pathways for engagement or enhanced training for staff? Enterprise Are you a brand community that’s part of a parent organization? Your organization probably already understands the value of investing in an online community, but rest assured that you’re in good company. In the 50th Anniversary report by the research firm IDC, it’s estimated that 80% of all Fortune 5000 companies will host an online community by 2020. As a community manager, you’ve probably covered all the basics such as approving your community’s budget for the new year, provided performance reviews of your staff, and mapped out your community strategy to align with organizational goals. Nevertheless, there are always more opportunities to increase your community’s prominence: What new early-stage relationships do you want to cultivate with employees, suppliers, vendors or partners? How can you create more networking touch points between your community and key constituencies to deliver community-driven solutions? How can you present your community’s data to stakeholders in new ways for better insight? How can you vest key stakeholders into community decisions and let them be a rewarding part of the conversation? What growth areas are happening within the organization, and how can you make the community be an integral part of its delivery? My personal New Year’s resolution is to develop my website into a Community of Excellence. This involves incorporating thought leadership from professional community management resources, making data-driven decisions, and formalizing a growth plan based on best practices. I hope you’ll join me in a year-long journey of community management as we conceptualize, learn, and discuss how to co-build Communities of Excellence. It’s a new year of endless opportunities to drive new growth and excellence for our members and communities. What are your community goals for 2019? Share in the comments below or in the exclusive Client Lounge in the Invision Community forums, so we can cheer each other on, check-in periodically, and provide peer mentorship for each other. Join me in a Year of Community. - Joel R Joel R is a mystery wrapped inside an enigma. When he's not running his own successful community, he's peppering Invision Community's private Slack channel with his feedback, community management experience and increasingly outrageous demands (everything is true except the last part).
  17. Fortnite has been dominating the gaming world and is probably the most successful free-to-play game in gaming history. The game managed to make $2.8 billion in revenue in 2018 and it doesn't seem to die out in popularity soon. The Battle Royale genre was made popular by PUBG and the game has held its own when it comes to earnings. © Blue Hole 2018 was a huge year for PUBG and according to Superdata figures, the game made over $1 billion in revenue last year. That made PUBG the highest grossing paid game in 2018 and the earnings don't even include money made from PUBG mobile. If we take earnings from PUBG mobile into consideration, it is probably the second highest grossing game right behind Fortnite. Here's the full list of both free-to-play and paid games ranked according to their earnings: Top Free-to-play Games Fortnite, Epic Games - $2.4 billion Dungeon Fighter Online, Nexon - $1.5 billion League of Legends, Riot Games, Tencent - $1.4 billion Pokemon GO, Niantic - $1.3 billion Crossfire, Neowiz Games - $1.3 billion Honour of Kings, Tencent - $1.3 billion Fate/Grand Order, Aniplex - $1.2 billion Candy Crush Saga, King, Activision Blizzard - $1.1 billion Monster Strike, Mixi - $1.0 billion Clash Royale, Supercell, Tencent - $0.9 billion Top Paid Games PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds, Bluehole - $1.028 billion FIFA 18, Electronic Arts - $790 million Grand Theft Auto V, Take-Two Interactive - $628 million Call of Duty: Black Ops IIII, Activision Blizzard - $612 million Red Dead Redemption 2, Take-Two Interactive - $516 million Call of Duty: WWII, Activision Blizzard - $506 million FIFA 19, Electronic Arts - $482 million Monster Hunter: World, Capcom - $467 million Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Siege, Ubisoft - $440 million Overwatch, Activision Blizzard - $429 million PUBG has been continually losing players after it peaked with 3 million concurrent players worldwide however it still ended up being the top selling and most-played game on steam. Considering how Fortnite has been destroying everything in its path, it's impressive to see the game earn this kind of figures. © MensXP The mobile version of the game has become more popular thanks to its popularity in India and other regions. The mobile version earned $32.5 million in November 2018 alone and it seems like the popularity of the game will only seem to rise. It's not only the mobile version, the game saw a sudden rise in concurrent players on Steam I.e. 1 million players in December 2018. This may have been due to Blue Hole's effort to purge hackers that initially led to the game's stagnant growth. It would be interesting to see how PUBG will fare against Fortnite in 2019 and whether it would be able to rake in similar revenue numbers. Still, it was reassuring to see PUBG hold it's own against a juggernaut like Fortnite. Source: Forbes
  18. In the ever-changing age of the digital world, social media, from being a simple platform that initially came to fore with the promise of helping people to keep in touch and keep up with one another, has, now, gone on to become 'the thing' for people. No relationship is considered real unless it's posted on the likes of Facebook and Instagram. Happiness is now measured by the number of vacation photos you share on your social media profile. There is so much and, still, much more. Then, there are those social media trends that get the users spell-bound, making it almost imperative for others to participate while inflicting FOMO (another irritating new-age lingo) if they don't. Staying true to its nature, social media has a new trend for everyone to follow - '10 Year Challenge'. A harmless fad, right? Or, is it (that's questionable). (Plus,minus)- 10 Year Challenge ðð @rogerfederer #10yearchallenge pic.twitter.com/2lAvyKMNj6 — Belinda Bencic (@BelindaBencic) January 17, 2019 The rules are pretty simple: you simply upload two photographs of yourself - usually side by side - which were taken at least ten years apart. What's the overall message here, you'd ask? It's again simple: self-love and showing the world how you've 'glowed up' (in other words, showing how you haven't aged a day). The '10 Year Challenge' is already a rage on the social media platforms. Facebook, Instagram and Twitter; you name it. The collage of photos would have thronged your feed on social media. From cricketers to footballers and politicians to actors, everyone has been happily riding the bandwagon. And, why not, in the age where information is second-handed (read digital) and real life is secondary, social media trends is the oxygen you cannot do without. But, amid all the crazy collages of people we've seen, there came one from Rohit Sharma that stands apart from the rest. The only #10YearChallenge we should be worried about pic.twitter.com/Tph0EZUbsR — Rohit Sharma (@ImRo45) January 17, 2019 Using the '10 Year Challenge' fad as an opportunity, the Indian opener highlighted one of the long-standing problems that might soon spell doom for the mankind. Taking to Twitter, the Mumbai batsman shared a collage of photos of the marine life where the one from 2009 was colourful and lively, while the one from 2019 was dull and dusty. He captioned the post with a valid point: "The only #10YearChallenge we should be worried about". In the year, where we all were going gaga about the stock image of an egg beating Kylie Jenner's record of the most-liked photo on Instagram, before Netflix's 'Bird Box' had people running around blindfolded, Rohit has set a much-needed precedent for celebrities and fans alike, showing that such social media trends can actually be used responsibly, and for something good. And, while there are already rife allegations that the collages of the photos that we all have been happily sharing on the social media could very well be used as data to test the facial recognition algorithms, people must proceed with due diligence. After all, humans are the connective link between physical and digital worlds. It's human interactions that make the 'Internet of Things' interesting. And, sadly, our data is the fuel that makes businesses smarter and more profitable.
  19. Surely, you have heard of 2019's first internet trend - the 10 Year Challenge, in which people compare their present self to what they used to be or how they used to look ten years ago. It's simple, interesting and can bring a smile to your face. Add to that your favourite sportspersons, whom you have grown up watching and idolising, and you've got yourself a hit! Here are the best of the #10YearChallenge from the ever-evolving world of Indian cricket: 1. Virat Kohli Getting along with the #10yearchallenge! Our skipper, @imVkohli has aged just like fine wine. ð#PlayBold pic.twitter.com/cQYd6baUCb — Royal Challengers (@RCBTweets) January 16, 2019 Keeping aside the apparent transformation, Kohli has worked hard on his skills as a batsman but more importantly, as the leader of the Indian cricket team. From getting in trouble for 'flipping the bird' to the Australian crowd to gracefully and with a great sense of humour, dealing with their racist comments with a gentle bow, Kohli has come to realise the responsibility, as India's representative to the world, which lies on the skipper's shoulders. From winning the Under 19 World Cup to becoming the best batsman in the world, this cub has found his roar and matured into a lion, the king of his jungle. 2. MS Dhoni @msdhoni â¤ï¸#2009vs2019 credit :- @ICC#2009vs2019challenge Years are temporary, Sixes are permanent.ð#Dhoni â¤ï¸#10yearchallenge pic.twitter.com/Kcgde3VKCY — Aditya DHONI (@_aditya_dhoni) January 16, 2019 'If it ain't broke, don't fix it.' Despite being a decade older, Dhoni continues to be an essential part of Team India. Even though he has given up his captaincy, Kohli had openly acknowledged the fact that he continues to seek Dhoni's advice when it comes to crucial decision making. His ability to deliver in the clutch and win games for his team is still consolidated and has him finish matches for the Men in Blue even now. It is not a must for a person to change if they are already ingenious. Humble in person and an absolute beast with his bat, the former Indian skipper, Mahendra Singh Dhoni, is dominating the 10 Year Challenge without changing a single thing about himself. 3. Prithvi Shaw .@PrithviShaw's #10YearChallenge is the only motivation you need.#ThisIsNewDelhi #DelhiCapitals Picture courtesy: Mumbai Mirror, NewsClick pic.twitter.com/fJ7T0AcZqo — Delhi Capitals (@DelhiCapitals) January 16, 2019 Another young prodigy, Prithvi Shaw was only nine-years-old a decade ago when he picked up the bat for the first time and sealed his destiny to become one of the finest batsmen the country will produce in the future. The 19-year-old is the newest member of the family that the Indian cricket team is, and has become the apple of the eye for the Indian fans ever since his show last year, during the Test series between India and West Indies, during which he became the youngest Indian to score a century in a Test debut. Shaw is considered to be the 'Next Big Thing' for the squad and who knows, by the time the 10 Year Challenge comes back in trend, he'd have many more records and titles under his belt to brag about. 4. Rohit Sharma #10YearChallenge #RohitSharma 1. Maggie Man on the left in 2009 2. Hitman on the right in 2019 pic.twitter.com/eZooB8HnW9 — Umashankar_Solanki_ð¥ð¥ ðð(@UmashankarSol10) January 16, 2019 There is a stark difference between who Rohit Sharma is today, and who he used to be ten years ago. Back then, struggling to be in form, Sharma had not scored a single century since his debut in June 2007 and used to play as a backup for some of the greatest players of the era. This meant that Sharma would constantly miss out on opportunities to play against big countries and was even dropped for the World Cup roster due to his inconsistency. Who knew the guy would eventually become one of the most successful batsmen in Indian history with the most number of 150s in the history of ODI cricket and would be able to outscore the entire opposition team on two different occasions. Sharma, who recently became a father, played an important role in India's historic Test series win against Australia and is irreplaceable in the squad during the ongoing ODI series. 5. Ravindra Jadeja #10yearChallenge Sir Ravindra Jadeja and Dhoni. ðpic.twitter.com/yQjEU0mclu — Direct Hit (@bevdashastri) January 16, 2019 Sir Jadeja made his International debut after an impressive Ranji season during which he scored 700+ runs and picked up 42 wickets. The selectors realised how useful the addition of Jadeja to the Indian roster would be and signed him up for an ODI against Sri Lanka. Despite having a journey of several ups and downs, Jadeja played his best cricket in 2013 and 2016 and was named as one of ICC's World ODI XI twice. He has finally made it to the inner circle and remains an integral part of the Indian squad. In 2018, Jaddu was also ranked 2nd in ICC's 10-top list of Test all-rounders.
  20. If you like the idea of your shoes resembling a full-fledged golf course, the kind where as soon as you enter a golf course your shoes disappear in the vast lands of freshly grown crisp grass blades like a chameleon, then this pair is made just for you. Heads up: They're not using real grass though. Disappointed? © Instagram The Nike Air Max 1 is a grass-covered shoe with laces that match the grass. A lining of astroturf covers the shoe surface in its entirety. On the sides, you'll find the monogrammed Nike logo in white. Below sits a Zoom Air midsole and a gum rubber outsole with golf-ready traction. So, the next time, you want to flaunt cool sneakers that disappear in the golf field, you wear these. But jokes aside, in all honesty, with all the dirt that clings to golf shoes, you don't want to take them to the golf course. © Instagram The launch date is not confirmed yet, but the shoes are rumoured to launch soon with the retail price of $140 which amounts to rupees 9,915 approx. Now that is a good deal for a shoe that is already making headlines and caters to your pastoral interests.
  21. Apple's wireless charging mat, better known as AirPower, was unveiled two years ago and was slated to launch in 2018. However, the wireless charging mat has not seen the day of light ever since. But now it seems like we may finally see it this year. © Apple According to reports, AirPower has begun production of the wireless charger which will be able to charge the iPhone, Apple Watch and AirPod simultaneously. The product was expected to launch alongside the iPhone XS and XS Max, however, it was delayed due to unknown reasons. ChargeLag, a reputable charging expert organisation has detailed that the AirPower is alive and well and will now be entering mass production. The information comes from an unnamed source working in the supply chain. Breaking: AirPower is finally coming. We just learned from credible source in supply chain that the manufacture Luxshare Precision has already started producing Apple AirPower wireless charging pad. Luxshare Precision is also the maker of Apple AirPods and USB-C cables. pic.twitter.com/UqgWIAh3sx — ChargerLAB (@chargerlab) January 12, 2019 The source says that the AirPower is being manufactured by Luxsare Precision, the same company that makes the AirPods and USB-C cables for Apple. Even though the tip-off seems quite credible, we can't be sure if the AirPower will launch sooner than expected. © Apple The AirPower was mentioned in the instructional manual that comes with the iPhone XS and XS Max and details how to charge the phone with the mat. Previous reports suggested that Apple had trouble getting the charging mat work the way Apple envisioned it would. AirPower was touted to charge three different devices at the same time. This may have been a cause for the wireless mat to overheat and cause other issues such as being slow, buggy and unreliable. If the tip by ChargeLag is to be believed, Apple may have solved the aforementioned issues and have indeed gone into mass production. Only time will tell when we will see the final product and its eventual launch date. Source: AppleInsider
  22. MS Dhoni is a man blended with perfection. Captain cool, best husband, a doting father and a great human being are just some basic adjectives and personality attributes that one can use to describe this humble man.

  23. 2018 was majorly a year for superhero, drama and musical films. Though we saw a few good scary flicks like 'A Quiet Place', 'Hereditary' and the sequel of 'Halloween', horror was not the genre that ruled Hollywood last year. via GIPHY However, this year, major horror films are releasing including the much talked about the sequel of 'It' and we are sure movie buffs will be preparing themselves to get scared like never before. via GIPHY Let us take a look at some of the most awaited horror films of 2019: 1. Us From Academy Award winner Jordan Peele comes another horror film that has already fetched amazing reviews on its first look. 'Us' is Peele's second feature film following 'Get Out' (2017). via GIPHY The Blumhouse Production dropped the trailer of the film on Christmas this year. What looks much similar to 'Get Out' is actually going to be quite different from it, explains Jordan. via GIPHY Starring Lupita Nyong'o and Winston Duke in lead roles, the film's trailer chronicles how a family on vacation gets horrified as they come face-to-face with masked creatures that look exactly like them. via GIPHY The film seems to offer many scary moments and has got some major supernatural elements to it. 'Us' remains on the top of our list, and we are also expecting the film to break many records. 2. It: Chapter 2 Stephen King's novel adaptation 'It' became the highest grossing horror film of all time surpassing others in the league including 'The Exorcist', 'Get Out' and 'The Conjuring'. via GIPHY The second chapter of the film is already in the making and is expected to hit the silver screen in September 2019. The film stars Jessica Chastain, Bil Hader, James McAvoy, Bill Skarsgård and James Ransone. After 27 years, the evil clown Pennywise makes his return to take revenge from the now grown-up members of the Losers' Club. via GIPHY It is expected that the Warner Bros. will be releasing the first trailer of the sequel much earlier before the film's release. Previously this month, Stephen King wrote on his Twitter account, 'IT CHAPTER 2 is coming'. We are sure, the trailer may be just around the corner. 3. Annabelle 3 The prequel of the horror franchise released earlier in 2018 and did a commendable business at the US Box office. The makers of 'Annabelle' are now gearing up for the release of the third part of the film. via GIPHY 'Annabelle 3' will take the audience into the journey of the possessed doll and will depict how it wreaked havoc at paranormal investigators' Ed and Lorraine's house museum. via GIPHY The film stars Patrick Wilson and Vera Farmiga in lead roles. This looks like a promising attempt in giving a final touch to the 'Annabelle' franchise. Producer James Wan has described this as 'Night at the Museum with Annabelle'. 4. Grudge 'The Grudge' series is one of the most talked about horror franchises in the world. The film has got various reboots, sequels, and remakes and remains in headlines every now and then with more new versions. via GIPHY The film came up in the year 2004 with the remake of the 2002 Japanese film 'Ju-on: The Grudge'. Since then, 'The Grudge' franchise has only grown. via GIPHY The film's thirteenth part will be releasing in 2019, and we are expecting it to be on similar lines of the previous films.

  25. Ninja, the prolific games streamer whose real name is Tyler Belvins, has been ruling the internet with streaming games online. Ninja was already a competitive Halo player for the year; however, he achieved new found success after streaming Fortnite with rapper Drake in 2018. © YouTube The success has obviously paid off and he told CNN in an interview that he made nearly $10 million (Almost Rs 70 Crore) in 2018. He told CNN in an interview that 70 percent of his earnings came from Twitch and YouTube via ads and subscriptions. 30 percent of his income came from sponsorship deals with companies like Samsung, Red Bull and Uber Eats. Let's not forget that Ninja's $10 million earning is probably before tax. However, it's still a lot of money for a streamer to make in 2018. Earlier in 2018, Ninja reported that he was making around $500,000 every month from various sources. © YouTube In the interview, Ninja mentioned that he spends around 12 hours each day streaming, and in 2018, he estimated he played over 4,000 hours of Fortnite. Ninja has also seen success in other areas such as a cover star of ESPN magazine and also made an appearance on Jimmy Fallon's late night show. Fortnite and other Battle Royale games have been taking over the world for the past two years and it doesn't seem like the game will lose steam anytime soon. Ninja believes Forntite still has a lot of room to grow and will continue to stream the game. Ninja has also expanded to his own clothing line which he sells via his website and streams.
