  1. Ronaldo has the best physique among his counterparts in the sport and is one of the best athletes in the world. His day begins with a team practice session that lasts for about 3-4 hours, which includes football drills, HIIT drills, sprinting and weight training exercises. Ronaldo trains in the gym for 4 days/week. His lifting routine primarily focuses on enhancing strength, speed and a little bit of hypertrophy. This type of training is extremely beneficial for athletes. © Reuters Here are six tips that can help you in getting a body similar to that of the Juventus star: 1) Focus On Nutrition: For your body to look jacked, you need to get rid of excess body fat. To get rid of it, get into a state of calorie deficit. A calorie deficit is when you consume fewer calories than is required to maintain your current body weight. Lower body fat is required to showcase your muscles. For most guys, this is 7 to 10% body fat. © Unsplash 2) Pick A Sport: Sports can really help you to in staying active. Pick any sport whichever you like and enjoy it 2-3 times per week. 3) Lift Weights: Weight training is the base to look jacked like Ronaldo. Weight training has various benefits like improving your concentration, building muscle, burning fat, improved *** life, less risk of injury, etc. Hit the gym 3-4 days in a week and be consistent with it. Incorporate compound movements and isolation movements. Learn the motor-skill pattern to build your core strength. © Unsplash Full body movements like the squat, the bench press, the deadlift or the overhead press engage and train your core. Implement big movements properly in your training plan so that you can lift heavy overtime and gain a good amount of muscle. 4) Cardio- Doing some cardio will not hurt your gains if you take care of your nutrition. Cardio can help you to condition your physique, however, cardio can also be a problem if you do too much of it. You can do any form of cardio like HIIT (high-intensity interval training) or LISS (low-intensity steady state). 5) Sleep- Your body will never show signs of improvement if your sleep pattern is not on point. What do I mean by this? You need to get at least 6-7 hours of deep sleep. A good range is 7-8+ hrs for better recovery outcomes. Some might require more than 8 due to their genetics and stress. If you are not able to get at least 6 hours then you might face sleep deprival effects. 6) Supplements- Supplements can really help you fill the gaps. You don't have to take a ton of it and especially not bullshit ones like BCAAs, fat burners, testosterone booster, etc. In fact, I would suggest you take the effective ones like: 1) Whey Protein- Whey protein is more of a convenience food which can help you to fulfil your protein gap. Mostly required by vegetarians and vegans who find difficult to complete their protein intake per day. © Reuters 2) Creatine- Creatine can help you to look fuller overall. It also helps you to increase strength and lean body mass. 3-5g/day intake is sufficient. 3) Caffeine- Caffeine is a stimulant which can help you boost your mood before any intensive work. It boosts your performance in the gym and helps you do more work in a short time. A couple of shots of black coffee will do the magic. To achieve Ronaldo's physique you have to be consistent, disciplined and dedicated. Author Bio: Yashovardhan Singh is an online fitness coach with www.getsetgo.fitness, an online fitness platform. Along with lifting weights and building his physique, he is also a motorbike enthusiast, an animal lover. You can connect with him on Instagram or drop him an email on yashovardhan@getsetgo.fitness.
  2. Religious lifters are always looking to get big. It's not just their bench and deadlift numbers that will give them the content of getting good results. They will always chase that size in their muscles as well. via GIPHY If you are one such lifter and are looking to grow some size and look more muscular than before, here are a few strategies that you should implement to achieve that look: 1. Up Your Carb Intake via GIPHY If you've spoken to a competitive bodybuilder, you would know that they all play around with their carb intake near their competition date. They do this to look their absolute best on stage when they are competing. When you eat enough carbs, your muscles get enough glycogen and they are able to bind more water molecule in them to look bigger and bulkier. This strategy works best when you are already carb depleted. However, even if presently you were not consuming enough carb in your diet, try to increase it a bit and see the difference by yourself. Carb sources should be a combination of simple and complex carbs in which complex carbs like sweet potato and oats should be dominant. 2. Stay Hydrated via GIPHY Majority of us think that we drink enough water during our normal routine; however, the truth is that only 15% of the total population actually drinks enough water according to their hydration needs. People who workout need to consume more water as they lose water during their workout. If you do not replenish your hydration level, your muscles will look flat. Try consuming more water even for a day than what you are consuming right now and you would start seeing the difference. Your muscles will look round and full. 3. Take The Right Supplements via GIPHY Though its generally the pre-workouts that promise you that insane pumps and big muscles, but it's creatine monohydrate that can deliver this for you. Creatine Monohydrate is the supplement that every 'natty' guy out there should include in his supplement arsenal. In fact, if you can afford even a single supplement out there; creatine monohydrate should be your choice. The results of creatine monohydrate are totally visible. Though it won't show you the results in a couple of days, yes, a few weeks on creatine and it will be a game changer for you. Creatine Monohydrate will give you that full muscular look that you have always been looking for. 4. Ample Rest via GIPHY Another way to look bigger in a very short period is to give proper rest to your body. Majority of the time people only concentrate on their workouts and compromise on their rest period which includes getting less sleep time. When you sleep less, your muscles don't recover properly and they look flat. Get good sleep of around 8 to 9 hours and you'll notice the difference in your muscles. Fully recovered muscles look more round and full. Anuj Tyagi, author of this article, is a Certified Sports Nutritionist and Therapeutic Exercise Specialist from American Council on Exercise (ACE).

  3. Jim Sarbh is the king of quirk, and no, we're not referring only to his choice of roles. When it comes to matters of style and fashion, the man is as non-mainstream as his roles are. Right from rocking gender-fluid ensembles to wearing clothes that manage to steal the collective thunder of the entire Bollywood. His latest avatar, however, is something we have never seen before. Take a look. © Instagram/Jimsarbhforreal © Instagram/Jimsarbhforreal Jim is legit looking like an edgy Indian king, wearing statement sherwanis by Shantanu & Nikhil. The impeccably stitched pieces spell elegance and royalty like nothing else, and we're obsessed with the innovative layering game. © Instagram/Jimsarbhforreal What stands out is the subtlety of the ensembles, in terms of the colour palette. The fact that they can look super conspicuous in spite of that, in terms of sheer design elements, is noteworthy. © Instagram/Jimsarbhforreal © Instagram/Jimsarbhforreal Modern Indian grooms can definitely take a leaf out of Jim's book when it comes to standing apart, as opposed to opting for the same old tried and tested outfits. The draping in some of the outfits are so unusual, that they are effortlessly ramp-ready. © Instagram/Jimsarbhforreal © Instagram/Jimsarbhforreal All we can say is, Jim's style game surely does look like it was 'made in heaven'.

  4. This is the right time for a film like 'Kesari' to ride the patriotic wave that's risen in the country, as many who've misplaced their sense of belonging right now can bring it back with this insanely impactful movie. The Akshay Kumar starrer brewed a solid total of almost 100-crore in the first week of its release and if you haven't watched it yet, it's time to get your a*s to the nearest cinema. The film was released on the occasion of Holi, this year and currently it stands at 87 crore. © Zee Studios 'Kesari' is definitely and by far the biggest opener of 2019 and of course the second biggest show-stopper for Akshay Kumar, after 'Gold'. Fortunately, this also makes Akshay Kumar's ninth hit in a row after 'Gold' (102.10 crore), 'PadMan' (78.22 crore), 'Toilet: Ek Prem Katha' (132.07 crore), 'Jolly LLB 2' (117 crore), 'Rustom' (127.49 crore), 'Housefull 3' (109.14 crore), 'Airlift' (128.1 crore), and 'Singh Is Bliing' (89.95 crore). All we can really say is Kudos Akshay Kumar, you did good! © Pinterest Trade analyst Taran Adarsh also Tweeted his two bits on the success of the film. #Kesari shows an upward trend on Day 3 [Sat]... Metros pick up, mass circuits good... Big Day 4 [Sun] on the cards... Eyes â¹ 80 cr [+/-] *extended* weekend... Thu 21.06 cr, Fri 16.70 cr, Sat 18.75 cr. Total: â¹ 56.51 cr. India biz. — taran adarsh (@taran_adarsh) 24 March 2019 The film was a mixed-bag of reviews. While it created an impact with most of the people, some of them thought it was too mainstream for a patriotic film. Rotten Tomatoes had about 11 reviews which were not very tasteful for the film. But other than that, the film did remarkably well, all over. © Zee Studios The film is based on the battle of Saragarhi, where 21 Sikh soldiers defended the fort of Saragarhi against 10,000 foreign invaders of the Pashtun fighters in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa region, now in Pakistan. If you haven't seen it yet, here's the trailer, so you can finally make up your mind!
  5. Comic book and superhero movies are all the rage these days, what with so many incredible movies releasing. But, since we cover so much Marvel and 'Avengers' (who can blame us?), here's us taking a little break and talking about 'Shazam'. This is for all those people complaining about all the 'Captain Marvel' articles and how we don't cover DC enough. Enjoy! So, the movie is releasing on April 5th and so it was time for the first, spoiler-free reviews to come out and they're all positive so far. The movie is basically getting a unanimous thumbs up from people who have watched it. There's a special mention for Zachary Levi and how brilliantly he basically portrays a young adolescent. It's entertaining, joyful, and sweet. Moreover, people are saying it completely understands the superhero genre. My spoiler-free #review thread of #Shazam The Donner's Superman of our generation, Shazam has so much heart and goes back to the original core of the superhero genre. This movie makes us believe in a world where Superheroes could exist and be loved at the same time. PT 1/15 pic.twitter.com/wh4TFrSPcn — Luiz Fernando (@Luiz_Fernando_J) March 23, 2019 This is a long review thread. There are many fantasy elements though, but inserted in a real world, with relatable people and situations. In such a way that you really believe that all those things could coexist. Basically what the #DCEU tried since #ManOfSteel, but is Shazam who better hit the goal. PT 2/15 — Luiz Fernando (@Luiz_Fernando_J) March 23, 2019 Let's hope so. The cast is perfect in their characters having the time of their lives, and there is chemistry everywhere. Mark Strong delivers a good villain, the supporting characters are awesome. I loved Billy's adoptive parents. Zachary Levi will get the praises he truly deserves. PT 10/15 — Luiz Fernando (@Luiz_Fernando_J) March 23, 2019 To summarise, #Shazam is a triumph, understands the superhero genre like few did recently. Amazing cast and storytelling. An emotional rollercoaster. As said in my reaction, a Gift for the genre, and a winner for WB. PS: wait til the end of the last bunch of credits. PT 15/15 — Luiz Fernando (@Luiz_Fernando_J) March 23, 2019 Seems promising. #Shazam (2019) SPOILER-FREE REVIEW! This movie reminded me of my childhood. I HATED MY CHILDHOOD! That Billy Batson is a MENACE-IN-TRAINING! I yelled, I laughed, I may have even shed a tear. 7/10 pic.twitter.com/2Oaof7gWnN — J. Jonah Jameson Reviews (@jonah_reviews) March 25, 2019 That's exciting. #Shazam ably carries the ball forward for DC's movie universe from #Aquaman. Big action, big laughs, big heart underneath, with terrific star turns from both @AsherAngel & @ZacharyLevi. (I also have to give it up for how well the marketing kept the best surprises under wraps!) — Zaki Hasan (@zakiscorner) March 24, 2019 Well, that's good. My Non-Spoilery thoughts on SHAZAM! SHAZAM is the 1-2-3 punch of the DCCU solo movies, continuing the streak from WONDER WOMAN to AQUAMAN to this fun Big Red Cheese-y flick! @ZacharyLevi @AsherAngelâ© â¦@Jgrazerofficialâ© are all perfect! Will watch EVERY movie in this franchise! pic.twitter.com/q0uYHphqGf — Dan Slott (@DanSlott) March 24, 2019 That's one way to put it. Ain't talked about #Shazam much but I think if you don't “like” this movie or find it “entertaining” you're probably dead on the inside lmfao. — 3-6 Mafia Gang (@MichaelHJordan) March 25, 2019 Can't wait! Saw an early screening of #Shazam . Probably one of the best Christmas movies ever made, right up there with Die Hard and Iron Man 3. Can't wait to see it again April 5! @ponysmasher is amazing! — Funmi Adetola (@FunmiAdetola1) March 24, 2019 Let's hope so. The fun thing is, #SHAZAM is basically creating a VERY new version of the whole mythos for an audience that will mostly have never heard of it, but oldschool/hardcore fans wondering how far/"deep" it's going to go will know like 2 minutes in... and then still be impressed. — Bob Chipman (@the_moviebob) March 24, 2019 Okay then. #Shazam is easily the best DC Comics movie of the current editions -- an absolute blast from start to finish and impressive balance of fun, heart, and terror. Full review: https://t.co/a2OVm4ojpa pic.twitter.com/LXiSzqx6H2 — Brandon Davis (@BrandonDavisBD) March 23, 2019 It's full of surprises! WB deserves a serious round of applause for the level of restraint they exercised with the marketing. That's not an exaggeration, it's unheard of for a CBM......and that's the closest you'll get to a spoiler from me. Incredible. #Shazam — TheFliteCast (@TheFliteCast) March 23, 2019 Oh wow. #Shazam isn't just a great superhero movie, it's the best DCEU movie. Even better than Aquaman. Definitely going to see it a few times before Avengers comes out! pic.twitter.com/DC7p8ynnCS — Jeremy Conrad (@ManaByte) March 24, 2019
  6. The twelfth edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL) brought two heavyweights Chennai Super Kings (CSK) and Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) facing each other at a packed MA Chidambaram stadium on 23rd March. To set the hearts racing, the opening match also pitted two of the biggest names in international cricket - MS Dhoni and Virat Kohli - against each other. But, in a contest that had star players including the likes of Kohli, Dhoni and AB de Villiers, an unlikely candidate managed to steal the spotlight. © Twitter/IPL Harbhajan Singh stunned the RCB and left every cricket fan in awe with a brilliant bowling spell that ended with impressive figures of 3-20. The inclusion of Harbhajan, who took just seven wickets in 13 games last season, in the Chennai line-up had surprised cricket pundits and fans alike. But, the off-spinner repaid the faith of his captain and team management with a brilliant outing. For someone who took his last T20 wicket against Rajasthan Royals (RR) on 11th May last year, Bhajji appeared to be a class of his own as he claimed the prized wickets of Kohli, De Villiers and Moeen Ali. Thanks to his bowling effort, Chennai managed to restrict RCB to a mere 70-run total - the sixth-lowest total in IPL history. © Twitter/IPL In reply, Chennai chased the paltry total with seven wickets and 14 deliveries to spare. Harbhajan was also adjudged the 'Man of the Match' for his pivotal bowling effort. "This is a special award for me. It goes to my wife and family. You cannot ask for a better start. Since they have a lot of left-handers, Fleming came and told me I will be playing. It was nice to get a wicket up front and once you have it, your confidence level grows up. Imran bowled really well and it's always nice to get wickets of Virat Kohli and AB de Villiers. How often an off-spinner gets their wickets," Harbhajan said at the post-match press conference.
  7. One of the worst terror attacks happened recently and took the lives of 49 people who were just praying peacefully at their place of worship, a place that was supposed to be safe for them. The Christchurch shooting in New Zealand happened yesterday and the tragedy has shaken the entire world. A gunman opened fire at two mosques which claimed the lives of 49 people and injured another 40. With so much emphasis being shed on how the shooter targetted a mosque that was completely peaceful, a Twitter user thought to bring light to the fact that every mosque is indeed peaceful. A place of worship is obviously a peaceful place, I mean it's kind of like a safe haven for people and the fact that someone targeted people while they were worshipping adds even more to the tragedy. Twitter user Rami Ismail called on the Muslim Community across the world to share their most ordinary and mundane experiences at a mosque and it gave birth to one of the most beautiful Twitter threads ever. Since several news networks emphasize that the mosques at the Christchurch shootings were #PeacefulMosques, as if most aren't: Hey muslims, tell me something painfully mundane and common at your mosque, whether you visit it five times a day or one time a year. Non-muslims, RT. — Rami Ismail (@tha_rami) March 15, 2019 He started it off. At my #PeacefulMosques, we used to have this 5-ish year old kid that would always run in front of everyone during prayer, and when he grew old enough to realize that was improper he stopped doing that and I actually kinda missed him messing up my prayer. — Rami Ismail (@tha_rami) March 15, 2019 The pigeons need a home. at my local mosque, the third floor has been abandoned and completely taken over by pigeons — abdullah (@ahmedinho_s) March 15, 2019 Who will complain about that? We hire security guards during Ramadan and have cops here every Friday. Over time, they just became part of our community. When we break fast, folks will take plates of food out to them and sit and eat with them, since they're usually missing dinner with their own families. — Haris Khan (@hariscodes) March 15, 2019 This is too cute to handle, tbh. When I went to my local mosque the other day, this little boy was feeding water to a thirsty cat â¤ï¸ #PeacefulMosques pic.twitter.com/Z5LDy87IH7 — Nishard (@iamnishard) March 15, 2019 Moms are the best! It always takes forever to find my sandals so if I go with my mom she'll make me carry my sandals in a plastic bag. — Fried Calamari watched Captain Marvel (@thehipstersquid) March 15, 2019 He must be a great teacher. After Quran lessons all of us would stand outside and wave to our teacher as he drove out of the parking lot. He was well loved! — countess bouchie flagrante ð¦ (@tweetsbybabz) March 15, 2019 More cats! A CAT!!! Pretty sure every mosque has a few inhabitant cats, strolling around, lazily lie itself during Friday prayer ð±pic.twitter.com/EJpr8A2vfa — Êá´É´á´á´Êá´ á´Êá´á´ (@alambentoo) March 15, 2019 The context makes it funnier. Ps: the written words are in Indonesian, it says, “Sleeping is prohibited inside the mosque” — Êá´É´á´á´Êá´ á´Êá´á´ (@alambentoo) March 15, 2019 A compromise. The battle of the thermostat in the ladies' prayer room. We compromised and the menopausal women now have a fan blasting in front of them. — Nida Nizami | Ùدا (@NidaNiz) March 15, 2019 Such a nice lesson on kindness for kids. I remember going to my #PeacefulMosques in eid with a bag of candy just so i can give it to other children, soon those children grow up to take my place in doing this kind stuff — farah (@afish4aday) March 15, 2019 I would've laughed out loud. In my #PeacefulMosque growing up, one time someone was standing a bit too far behind the line compared to the people beside him, and the dude behind him literally headbutted his bum while getting up from sujood. ð — Buhlyle (@itsSonOfAzad) March 15, 2019 Flowers are the best. There's always someone selling roses at my local mosque :) — Chad Toprak ð(@MrChad) March 15, 2019 That is so commendable. I'm a non believer but that did not matter to my local mosque when my house caught fire. They didn't care about anything but helping us. This is heartbreaking.#PeacefulMosques — Heather Brown (@springchikun) March 15, 2019 Just a simple act of kindness that makes a huge difference. Best thing was learning that a lot of tourists like us miss their ferry all the time & the mosque had a place of sleep for them simply out of kindness! — Ceylan (@lawvsmed) March 15, 2019 Exactly! I used to go to the mosque to just sit and think sometimes. Mosques are peaceful, that's the whole point. — t.exe (@gorizmi) March 15, 2019 This is so great. The way a hundred strangers will say “asalamualaikum” with a small smile before you take find a spot on the carpet to pray. The way people will ask not only how you are, but how is your mother, your father, your sister, your brother? The way you leave, loved. Every single time. — Farah (@far_ah_way) March 15, 2019 So much love. Our resident masjid grandma who would scold us when we failed to volunteer but also push us to the front of the line for Iftar during Ramadan. That's love right there. — Aliya Karim (@alumalu) March 15, 2019 Make space for everyone. "Brothers, please scoot forward, we have a lot of space here, so please make room for the people standing outside" — zeffykins (@zeffykins) March 15, 2019
  8. I don't know exactly when this meme started, but I'm so on board with the entire 'spoiler without context' thing. It's so simple and genius, if you've seen the movie, you'll get the joke and that's fun and if you haven't yet watched a certain movie, congrats nothing is getting spoiled! I think the first time I saw the movie spoiler without context tweets, was right after the release of 'Avengers: Infinity War' and since then I've seen more and more people tweet this for different movies. Along with 'Infinity War', we've seen some hilarious spoilers for movies like 'Deadpool 2' and 'Antman And The Wasp'. Now, another Marvel movie is all set to join the list. Yes, 'Captain Marvel' basically just released and well, a lot of people still have to watch it, but you know that Twitter works fast. There are already a bunch of spoilers without context floating around the website and they're hilarious.

  9. The Khurana brothers are perhaps the most stylish siblings in Bollywood right now, and even though Ayushmann usually is the forerunner in terms of kickass style moves, Aparshakti is not far behind at all. He just demonstrated it once again with his accessory game, by wearing an industrial belt that's more than 6 Feet 7 Inches in length. Take a look. © Viral Bhayani © Viral Bhayani Aparshakti is wearing the Off-White industrial yellow belt that was showcased first during Virgil Abloh's Fall-Winter collection in 2016. The yellow belt runs a super extra length of 205 cm and has an adjustable metal buckle. Of course, he had to wrap it around 2-3 times. © Hypebeast Off-White is famous for creating pieces that set the wearer apart in a crowd, and this clearly is one of those statement pieces of accessories. The fact that Aparshakti is wearing it with a basic black T-shirt and a relaxed pair of black trousers, shows that the man understands the nuances of subtle street style. © Viral Bhayani © Viral Bhayani Coming to how much it costs, the belt is worth 211 USD, which when converted to NR comes close to about Rs 15,000. But when one piece can transform your entire ensemble, we guess it's worth it after all.
  10. Yes, the Indian cricket team lost the two-match T20I series against the visiting Aussies and yes, it is for the first time in 40 months that the Men in Blue have lost a series on their own soil. It's just one of those things you can't and mustn't complain about. This is where the sportsman spirit steps in: to be equally content in wins and losses. Major props to Glenn Maxwell who delivered under extreme pressure to seal the deal for the Australia cricket team and also made a case for himself before the selections of the upcoming ICC World Cup 2019 as he scored an unbelievable 119 off just 55 deliveries. But we are here to talk about 'Thala' himself! Mahendra Singh Dhoni, at 37 years of age continues to show the batting and fitness abilities of a 25-year-old athlete. Flexible Dhoni â¤ð¥ 2.14m ðpic.twitter.com/fTnSwULGTP — Ponraj (@goking2000) February 28, 2019 In the 11th over of Team India's innings, Dhoni went of out the crease to try and hit a big one but Adam Zampa's delivery went on to be wide, completely out of the Indian batsman's range. His wicket-keeping instincts quickly took over as he extended his right leg for an astonishing 2.14 metres to get inside the line to avoid being stumped by Australian keeper Peter Handscomb. The third umpire gave a decision in favour of the batsman as the replay showed that Dhoni was too quick and well inside the crease for Handscomb to knock the bails off. Mahi had shown off his flexibility once before as well in a match against New Zealand in November 2017.

Forming a solid partnership with Indian skipper Virat Kohli was dismissed scoring just a single, Mahi gathered a much-needed 44 in just 22 balls and it was as if the number of Dhoni haters suddenly dropped to zero.

  11. Innovation doesn't come easy and Samsung managed to pull off a working foldable smartphone and calls its the “Galaxy Fold.” It's a phone that can fold and can be bought for a lot of money. There's no doubt that the Galaxy Fold is an engineering marvel; however, it has one very obvious caveat. The Galaxy Fold may look different from anything you've ever seen, but it's too damn thick when folded. © Samsung The device itself has a screen size of 4.6-inches when folded and turns into a 7.3-inch display when unfolded and becomes a tablet. It's probably the most refined foldable smartphone we've seen yet. The one feature that sets the Galaxy Fold apart from others is its app continuity feature. Currently, it works with YouTube, WhatsApp, Google Maps, YouTube, Netflix and Facebook. © Samsung On one hand, the Galaxy Fold is a device that lets you fit something in your pocket that is as big as a tablet. On the other hand, the Galaxy Fold is way too thick for it to sit comfortably in your pocket. Reports suggest that the Galaxy Fold is 17mm thick when folded and 6.9mm thick when unfolded. To put things into perspective, the Galaxy Fold is as thick as the Nintendo Switch and it is certainly not practical to fit something that thick in your pocket. On the brighter side, the Galaxy Fold does come with impressive specifications that makes it one of the most powerful and expensive smartphones yet. The Galaxy Fold comes with 12 GB of RAM and batteries on each side of the foldable phone. It has six cameras, i.e. three on the back, one on the front and two inside. © Samsung The rear cameras are a 12-megapixel wide-angle camera, a 16-megapixel ultra-wide camera and a 12-megapixel telephoto camera. On the inside, the two cameras are a 10-megapixel selfie camera and an 8-megapixel depth camera. As for the front-facing camera, the Galaxy Fold has a single 10-megapixel selfie camera. Even though the Galaxy Fold is probably the most exciting thing made by Samsung yet, it's sheer thickness can be problematic for users who want a practical device. The Galaxy Fold also costs $ 1980 (Approx Rs 1,40,670) which is a fair price for something that's innovative. Whether folding phones will be a thing of the future remains to be seen. Maybe, future iterations will be thinner and more affordable.
  12. “India's music festival scene seems to have taken a leaf out of the big fat Indian wedding booklet. They keep getting grander,” I overheard a fellow attendee who was attending her first major music festival in India. First of all, let's establish that I'm no expert on the subject. But music fest regulars keep telling me about amplified audiences and improved logistical arrangements in the last few years. These efforts have definitely put India on the world map of parties and merrymaking in the name of music. I assume that most of you reading this are at least aware of the Fyre documentary on Netflix; so we know how bad things can get. My friends from the PR industry insist that Budweiser, especially with its vertical Budweiser Experiences (BE), has had a critical impact in this space. To be honest, it's hard to ignore the good things that have happened in electronic music via BE fests like Tomorrowland, Electric Daisy Carnival, and Sensation. In India, it has also introduced 'What's Brewing' – a global music platform where local and international artists perform exclusive sets and BUDx Boiler Room, which claims to be the first global electronic music lab in India. © Budweiser/MensXp Budweiser Experiences calls itself an innovative platform curated with an aim to shape youth culture in India and provide world-class experiences for our consumers across the passion points of music, art, sport and lifestyle. And going by our experience at Sensation, when they invited us over for arguably India's most well-known dance music festival Magnetic Fields, we had to answer the call. It was my first trip to the magical land of musical experiences in the North West corner of Rajasthan, Jhunjhunu. The festival takes over the ostentatious Alsisar Mahal every December to bring together the most regal rave in India. Around 4,000 partygoers gather to freely glamp in the sand, meander across sunbaked roofs, and enjoy the fluid nature of the festival's structure (you aren't given the Festival Guidebook until you arrive at the venue) across three days. Plot twist: I was sober throughout the rave. I'm not averse to experiments, but ingesting psychedelics didn't feel as inviting at that point in time. It's easy to feel like a misfit in that sea of 3,999-odd others in that situation but I got through and had a lot of fun in the process. With the party season is in full swing right now, you might also find yourself in similar situations. That's why your saviour has made you a proper guide to stay sober and yet make the most of India's big fat music festivals. And it goes like this: Immerse in the travels © Budweiser/MensXp There's only one way to approach Alsisar Mahal i.e road transport. Most attendees chose to drive but our media junket was provided with our own bus from Delhi. The camp site was around 225km away and the landscapes after exiting the NCR confines were a huge relief from city life. More so for the music journalists who were travelling from Mumbai. There's only one midway restaurant on the way though. Cars had made a beeline and the costumes of their passengers were a definite giveaway about their destination. Do try their pakodas with chaai, and have a plate of the biryani if the hunger pangs are too intense. Pro tip: Carry your own cigarettes and carry your own snacks. Everything else you're too careful about, I'm sure. Make friends © Budweiser/MensXp I met a few familiar faces from my Mumbai circles, in Delhi. But little did I know about India's music journalist community. Some of them, just like the sports and auto sectors, are true nerds of their craft. And eventually, nothing beats a good old glass of rum to make new friends. The rest of the fest's audience was drawn from across the country, particularly the party-friendly cities of Mumbai and Bangalore. There were also expats from the Gulf and a number of Europeans, of the backpacking, hippy variety, who were climaxing on this orgasmic intersection of 'culture' and history. “Ek bottle paani,” I heard a white dude ask a local vendor. A few quick exchanges later we exchanged numbers and promised to host each other in Germany and Delhi respectively. Pro tip: Just go up to people and talk. Most fest goers don't bite. Eat well © Budweiser/MensXp Speaking of local vendors, don't fall into the trap of glamping restaurants; rather eat at the by lanes running along the palace's boundary walls. The entire village comes to life during Magnetic Fields and locals conjure up tiny eateries, extending from their patios. Try out all the local food and especially some of the desi chicken and mutton preparations. It was so cold I couldn't resist the Maggi and eggs either. Pro tip: Carry toilet rolls if anything goes wrong. You're in the middle of a fucking desert. Colder climates don't run a high risk of dehydration unless you're drinking. Alcohol can easily be obtained at one of these makeshift local shops. Prices are nearly double the standard rates, but that's the least you can pay for that convenience. Either way, stay hydrated under the day Sun (which can be scorching at times) and pee responsibly. Enjoy the countryside © Budweiser/MensXp Apart from satiating gastronomic requisites, the Rajasthani countryside also offers unique handloom shops and other surprises. It likes to pride itself in being a capsule illustrative if a time when the land was ruled by Rajput warriors. Look carefully and you'll find ancient frescos and carvings on the medieval era buildings. Lucky ones, like yours truly, also get guided tours from the palace's prince himself. He followed him around the maze-like gullies and arrived at a pop-up staged called Pukaar. No trip to Rajasthan is ever complete without a dose of folk music and Kutle Khan's group was just that glimpse of the region's melodic prowess. Pro tip: Talk to the locals, they're fascinated by everything that's happening around them. PS: The more orthodox ones might just be a little pissed Let the music guide you © Budweiser/MensXp And finally, the variety of musical experiences is a fitting exhibition of the festival's essence. There's a stage called Oasis, which is a cute little setup in the sand. DJs from Monica Dogra to Kristy Harper, and Delhi Sultanate played under the winter Sun here across the three days. Grab a six-pack from a nearby counter and you're sorted for a few hours. The sundown magic begins at the terrace party, where I discovered the effortless coolness of Lifafa and the nights then unfold at the North Stage, the South Stage and the BudxYard. Along with the likes of Daphin, Pangaea and Carista at these arenas, a Delhi band called Submarine in Space enthralled a niche crowd at Piano Man Jazz Club's 'The Peacock Club' stage. My personal favourite at the festival though was undoubtedly Tajdar Junaid. Before his participation was announced, big acts including Nabihah Iqbal were cancelled. Music journalists were especially bummed, but Junaid put a smile on everyone's face and a tear or two in a few eyes. Pro tip: Keep listening, there'll be a tune for you. So there you go. Next time you're feeling left out at Mag Fields or any other big fat Indian music fest, here's your tried and tested guide to merriment. Thank me later.
  13. The Redmi Note 7 was launched earlier this month in China, and the phone's biggest feature that has been advertised is its durability. In order to prove their claims, the company released a video where the smartphone was put through a bunch of stress tests. The video shows employees stomping on the Redmi Note 7, throwing it down the staircase and also a man used it as a skateboard. © YouTube The first video below shows Redmi CEO Lu Weibing throwing the Redmi Note 7 down a staircase and it suffered multiple tosses yet did not suffer any bumps or scratches. Another user used the smartphone as a skateboard by sticking wheels with duct tape. Even in this scenario, the Redmi Note 7 did not suffer any scratches or any other form of damage. This was possible thanks to the phantom grade double-sided Corning Gorilla Glass 5 body that protects the smartphone from such ordeals. In terms of other specifications, the Redmi Note 7 has a dual 48-megapixel camera set up at the back, 4,000 mAh battery and a teardrop notch display. Redmi is now a separate sub-brand of Xiaomi and its first phone is the Redmi Note 7 that has already been launched in China. The Redmi Note 7 features a 6.3-inch Full HD+ (2340x1080 pixels) display with 19.5:9 aspect ratio and Corning Gorilla Glass 5. It runs on a Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 octa-core SoC paired with 3GB, 4GB, and 6GB RAM options along with 32GB and 64GB storage options. © Redmi For more information on the Redmi Note 7 and the Redmi Note 7 Pro, you can check out all the details here.
  14. Comedy is just a funny way of being serious but there is nothing harder than doing comedy. Laughter is a big part of our lives, we must try to laugh as much as possible because life is too short to be grumpy and irritated. In recent years, TV Series' have become an essential part of our lives. A heartfelt thanks to all the writers and actors who put a smile on our faces with their humour and wit. Comedy isn't only about being funny, it is a perspective on greater problems in a jovial way; it questions the long-standing, archaic human emotions. Feeling low? Watch a funny show, you will feel positively better. Whenever it comes to comedy shows, 'Friends' and 'Seinfeld' among others always take the cake. But, there are a lot of other shows which don't get their due because of not enough fanfare or publicity, even if they are funny and have good material. Under the more popular opinion, these shows tend to get underrated. Being a 'Friends' fan myself, I can't possibly think that there is some other show which might come at par with it; this is where I stand wrong. If you only eat a particular type of food, you wouldn't get to experience the taste of others. So, branch out! Here are six of the best comedy shows (unfortunately underrated) which deserve a much bigger fanbase and greater popularity: 1. Grace and Frankie (2015-): What would you do if you found out that your partner of 40 years was gay? This is what happens to Grace Hanson and Frankie Bergstein who are well into their early 70s and find out that their respective husbands, Robert and Sol (played splendidly by Michael Sheen and Sam Waterston), are gay and have been cheating on them with each other for the past 20 years. Crazy, right? To top it off, Robert and Sol want to divorce their respective wives and get married. © Netflix / Skydance Television / Okay Goodnight This starts a series of hilarious incidents with Grace and Frankie leaving their husbands and moving into a beach house owned by both families. What follows is a funny train wreck. With starkly opposite personalities, the prim and proper Grace and eccentric, scatter-brained Frankie who hate each other and have never got along well, clash at every opportunity which ends up with comedic results; Frankie being declared officially by government offices, Sol becoming a theatre artist, Grace exploring her sexuality and dating pool, eventually Grace and Frankie becoming best friends and starting a vibrator business! If you think what a show with two old women could have in store for a young person like you, then you will be mightily surprised by the comedic elements and situations of the show; which is the main theme. Just give it a try! Why do we recommend it? - Jane Fonda is superb as Grace Hanson, the no-nonsense, uptight intelligent blonde and Lily Tomlin as the lovable, doofus, hippie-inspired Frankie Bergstein and they carry the whole show on their shoulders. - Their comedic timing is impeccable and their camaraderie from the “9 to 5” (another movie in which they starred together) days is fun to watch and effortless. © Netflix / Skydance Television / Okay Goodnight -An ensemble cast with June Diane Raphael and Brooklyn Decker as the Hanson daughters and the Ethan Embry and Baron Vaughn as the quirky Bergsteins are a hoot. - It shows how you don't need to worry about age to have fun and start afresh. Nothing more to be expected from Marta Kauffman, who gave us 'Friends'! You are sure to get a lot of 'Friends' vibes. No. of seasons: 4 Total no. of seasons: 5 (4 released, 1 to be released in 2019) 2. Schitt's Creek (2015-): Don't judge a show by its title! :D © CBC / Not a Real Company Productions When the uber-rich Roses lose their multi-million fortune to tax evasion, they are forced to leave their mansion and settle in a town, Schitt's Creek, which they once bought as a joke for their son's birthday. Follow the Roses as they try to adapt to their new life in this dilapidated town in America; starting with living in a descript, cheap motel and the town's horde of quirky characters; Roland Schitt, the creepy mayor and his innocent wife, Jocelyn among others. The series further follows the lives of the individual characters, and how they evolve; Johnny Rose: The patriarch, previous owner of a chain of video stores, Rose Videos, who is trying to come to terms with his loss and his new business ventures which mostly have funny repercussions. Moira Rose: A former TV star of a mildly successful show called 'Sunrise Bay' who can't cope with the sudden shift of fortunes and is still trying to maintain her lifestyle, complete with her over the top costumes and precious wigs (which she has individually named). Alexis Rose: The spoilt, slightly dumb and utterly selfish daughter who has breezed through life till now and been everywhere in the world, with her various rich boyfriends and is trying to be okay with her situation because she likes the vibe. :P David Rose: The gay, sassy son of the Roses, who needs everything in order and is not very happy with how his life has turned out and is trying to find some direction in life and also friends and love (and does so with the motel receptionist, Stevie Budd). © CBC / Not a Real Company Productions Why do we recommend it? -The iconic pair of Eugene Levy and Catherine O'Hara, who play Johnny and Moira, gives the laughs and the feels for the show. Their camaraderie is unbreakable. Catherine's Moira is superlative. Only she can pull off all those different accents and the whole uptight, classy lady act. For all the troubles they face, the love for each other doesn't diminish in the slightest. Eugene is Eugene, the affectionate dad from American Pie. -The episodes are funny and earthy; they have captured the essence of human relations and portray them through comic scenarios. -“Eww David!”, Alexis' (Annie Murphy, who plays the character brilliantly) catchphrase will make you laugh every time and will make sure that you won't be able to say and hear “David” normally again. Stevie (Emily Hampshire) and David (Daniel Levy) are friendship goals; they are adorable together. -Chris Elliot as the mayor, Roland, provides the creepiness required which is balanced by his counterpart, Jocelyn, played by Jennifer Robertson. No. of seasons: 4 Total no. of seasons: 5 (4 released, 1 to be released) 3. Full House (1987-1995): Even though it was a popular show, I somehow find that it doesn't get its fair share, being termed as a family comedy. A comedy about a recently widowed guy, Danny Tanner (Bob Saget), who along with his best friend, Joey Gladstone (Dave Coulier), and cool brother-in-law, Jesse Katsopolis, tries to raise and care for his three daughters. © WB Television / Miller Boyett Productions The series focuses on the crazy antics of the Tanner family and the hysterical situations they fall into owing to the kookiness of Joey, the OCD which Danny has and his obsessive nature and the cool dude factor of Jesse. The girls, DJ, Stephanie and Michelle, aged 10, 5 and six months, add to the charm of this family comedy. Why do we recommend it? - Before Joey Tribbiani was asking women how they were doing, it was Jesse, played by John Stamos who was making women go weak in their knees with his “Have Mercy!”. The character is tailor-made for John, with his obsession with his hair and music, he is the cool uncle we want and the guy everyone wants to be. Get a few pointers from him but follow them at your own risk! :P - Joey and Chandler are iconic, no doubt about that but so are Jesse and Joey. Their bromance will make you laugh all the way through its 8-season run. You could say that they were the “Chanoey” of the 80s. Aunt Becky (played by Lori Loughlin), Jesse's wife, doesn't have a chance. © WB Television / Miller Boyett Productions - The show features the now reclusive Olsen twins: Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen as Michelle Tanner. Starting out at the age of six months, it was their stairway to success. Prepare to get sappy with their adorable acting and laugh at their fights with her on-screen older siblings. - Danny Tanner, with his penchant for cleaning, will remind you of Monica. They are basically the same person; Type A, nerdy, cleanliness freaks, I can go on and on. You will find yourself relating to him. - Dave Coulier's impressions are legendary, and you get to hear Ted Mosby's 2030 voice before it became cool, i.e. the voice of Bob Saget. No. of seasons: 8 Total no. of seasons: 8 4. Community (2009-2015): This show is what we would call the runt of the litter. Even though it has intelligent writing and superb performances, it doesn't get featured much on the comedy scene. It has an unconventional brand of humour, mostly meta humour which most people don't get or are not used to in the conventional sitcoms. It features a sarcastic former lawyer, Jeff Winger, who has been disbarred owing to his lie about having a law degree from Colombia University, as a result of which he enrols into Greendale College in order to obtain an authentic law degree. After starting a fake study group to spend more time with his new crush, Britta (Gillian Jacobs) who is an activist for various causes, his plans go awry as she invites other students into the group. © NBC / Sony Pictures What follows is a laugh riot comprising of his struggle to finish his degree with minimum effort and having to deal with a host of weird fellow students and teachers while trying to enjoy his time as a student. © Pinterest Why do we recommend it? - Joel McHale as the glib, manipulative, suave ex-lawyer, Jeff, is perfection. His chemistry with classmate Britta is believably sweet. - Abed and Troy are poster boys for friendship. Their scenes together are tummy-tickling funny and the best thing about them is that they bring out the best in each other, Abed's influence and pop-culture mania make Troy carefree and different from his bully demeanour and Troy helps Abed to become more sociable. -Ben Chang, the eccentric teacher who is constantly changing his behaviour, played by Ken Jeong (of 'The Hangover' and 'Dr Ken' fame) is hilarious. Also, Shirley and Annie add to the insanity with their antics. No. of seasons: 6 Total no. of seasons: 6 5. Psych (2006-2014): A detective comedy which centres around Shawn Spencer (James Roday), a crime consultant who has made people believe that he is a psychic and is then mainly hired by the Santa Barbara police department for solving complex crimes. What no one is aware of is that he is no psychic, but he has just heightened observational skills and a strong eidetic memory. He is joined by his best friend, the only one on the secret, Burton Gunser (Dulé Hill) who is extremely intelligent and apprehensive about joining him initially. Together, they solve crimes with hilarious incidents preceding it. © NBC Universal Television Studio / Universal Cable Productions Why do we recommend it? - The comedy is not derivative and very real. There is no canned laughter and the series relies on the comic timing of the leads completely. - The episodes are not over the top and unlike other comedies has a story. The stories are well-executed and don't drag on. - The episode starts with a memoir from the childhood of both leads usually ending with a life lesson which further helps them in cracking the case. © NBC Universal Television Studio / Universal Cable Productions No. of seasons: 8 Total no. of seasons: 8 6. Everybody Loves Raymond (1996-2005): Created by the talented Philip Rosenthal, with events inspired by his own life, it is an uproarious comedy about Raymond Barone (Ray Romano), a successful sports writer for the newspaper “Newsday”, who is sarcastic and irresponsible and as a result constantly finds himself in the middle of some or the other funny argument or jam, a creation of his own callousness. The constant struggle between his wife Debra and his mother, Marie, keeps throwing him in a tight spot, from which there is no easy escape without offending one of them. Yet again, if not these two women, he is bound to get in the middle of some familial argument, which doesn't go well for him due to his indecisiveness on any matter which sure entertains the viewer. Raymond's knack for joking even in serious situations also lands him in hot waters; he doesn't know when to crack jokes and this makes him adorable. © CBS / HBO Independent Productions / Where's Lunch Why do we recommend it? - The dry humour is a respite from the slapstick humour recent shows provide and are heavily dependent on. You are bound to get a 'Sarabhai vs Sarabhai' vibe while witnessing Debra (Patricia Heaton) and Marie (Doris Roberts) arguing. - The sibling rivalry between Raymond and his older brother, Robert, a giant of a man with a sweet disposition, who is not so famous and is clearly not the parents' favourite, will surely remind you of your sibling! They keep arguing throughout the show because Robert is constantly jealous of Raymond's celebrity and likability but loves him deep down. - The show explores how family is important and how much it matters to have a loving one and how it changes you. Frank Barone, typical of his American-Italian heritage is shown to be tough but is a loving father under the surly exterior; which Raymond has adopted in a way which is a bone for contention in his and Debra's marriage. No. of seasons: 9 Total no. of seasons: 9 Now that you know that there are better shows out there, go get your fair share of laughter!
  15. The Apple Watch Series 4 comes with an ECG function that was recently released in the U.S. Since it became available for about a month, the feature is already proving to be a useful one. It was able to detect atrial fibrillation with the new feature and saved a man's life in Nashua, New Hampshire. Barry Maden originally bought the Apple Watch to “keep a closer eye on his health after suffering a brain injury.” He bought the Apple Watch for it's Fall Detection feature. “He originally got it because they have a new fall risk app where, if he were to fall and I'm not nearby, the fall sensor will sense that he fell and call 911,” said his wife, Tara Maden. © MensXP_Akshay Bhalla He originally thought he was suffering from anxiety due to travelling for the holidays. However, his Apple Watch alerted him that his heart appeared to be in A-fib. It isn't clear if Maden used the ECG app right away to detect the A-fib. However, it was enough for him to double check if he was suffering from something serious. He soon thereafter took himself to the emergency room. © Apple At the hospital, doctors performed their own tests using a more advanced ECG device to verify the Apple Watch's discovery. It was soon discovered that Maden's “heart was essentially stopped and restarted by doctors.” The Apple Watch has been found to save lives previously and recently saved a woman from drowning in water as her car flipped over. You can read about all other instances where Apple Watch has been found detecting heart diseases here. Source: WMUR
  16. There have been numerous instances in the past where the Apple Watch saved lives, thanks to features on board that facilitates emergency services. There have been instances where users were warned of an impending heart attack, indicating heart diseases due to abnormal heart rates and even car crashes. You can read all previous cases of Apple Watch's capability to save lives here. © MensXP/Akshay Bhalla Now according to a report from Spectrum Bay News 9, another incident resulted in the Apple Watch saving its user's life. However, this time a woman was saved due to a car crash that flipped several times before it landed in a ditch filled with mud and water. © YouTube (for representation purposes only) During the crash, Amanda Antonio, 20, had lost her phone but managed to locate it using a feature on the Apple Watch that pings the smartphone. She then called 911 and according to the transcript this is what she said “Hi, I've been in a car accident. My car is flipped and I can't see anything and there's water getting in the car. I can't get out. The water level was apparently rising at a fast pace and had reached Antonio's chin level. © MensXP/Akshay Bhalla The feature on the Apple Watch lets users ping their paired iPhone that makes a sound to let the user know where it is. It's a nifty feature that not only lets you find your iPhone, but apparently can also end up saving lives. To know more about Apple's latest smartwatch, you can read our review here.

  17. Yet another match, yet another early dismissal for the Indian Test opener, KL Rahul who faced only 5 balls before Shaun Marsh sent him away with an easy catch at slip. The 26-year-old was visibly disappointed as he walked back to the locker room bagging all but 9 runs for his first innings. View this post on Instagram Oh what a start for the Aussies! The seam position on this from Josh Hazlewood ðð A post shared by cricket.com.au (@cricketcomau) on Jan 2, 2019 at 4:02pm PST Rahul has not been in form and was dropped for the third Test at Melbourne after performing poorly at Adelaide (2, 44) and Perth (2, 0). Evidently, the fans were annoyed when they saw his name in the Final 13-man squad for the extremely crucial fourth and final match of the series. In all honesty, very few believed that despite making the Final 13, Rahul would actually play today and were hoping to see an injury-recovering Ravichandran Ashwin on the field as a replacement for Rohit Sharma who is in India, visiting his week-old daughter. Despite opening the match with his best friend and U-19 teammate, Mayank Agarwal, who has been exceptionally good and consistent during the series, Rahul was unable to capitalise on the chemistry and went to the bench within no time. And of course, the hardcore fans of the game had things to say on Twitter. I got up 5 mins late. Missed legend's batting.

Come to think of it, when Sunil Gavaskar bashed India's team management a few weeks ago and suggested sending Rahul back home where he could have partnered with Manish Pandey for Karnataka for the Ranji Trophy, it does not sound like a bad idea now in retrospect. Rahul would not only have been of great significance for Karnataka but would also have a lot of matches to play and the time to get his mojo back. But there is no point crying over spilt milk now. With the ODI series at hand starting 12th January and the World Cup around the corner, what do you think is in store for KL Rahul?

  19. If you are an iron head, you know who Ronnie Coleman is. Heck, even people who live in the cardio section know who the King of bodybuilding is. Eight times Mr. Olympia and arguably the biggest and the most conditioned bodybuilder to ever grace the stage, Ronnie was a freak of nature put on steroids. I recently watched his latest documentary called 'The King'. Rightly named, the movie chronicles Big Ron's life and times even before he started professional bodybuilding. Mind you, it's not a spectacle of any kind to watch. If anything, it's a journey through the mindset and most importantly, the pain of being the best in the world. It's just as painful as it's inspiring. Ronnie Was A Freak Of Nature © YouTube Whichever sport Ronnie took part in during his school and college days, he came up as a champion. His naturally athletic demeanor made him stand out in American football, track and field and what not. He was built for sports. At 18, he first stepped on the stage and won his very first amateur bodybuilding competition. This win changed the course of this entire life and the Ronnie Coleman that the world now knows, was born. Hustle And Flow © YouTube Ronnie never came from a 'provided-for' background. He hustled his way through daily life. Despite of being brilliant at accounting, circumstances led him to serve pizzas at Dominos. Soon after he joined the police force as rookie and it was here where a fellow officer of his, introduced him to Brian Dobson. Impressed by the size Ronnie was already carrying and knowing the fact that Ronnie can't pay the gym fee, Dobson offered him a free lifetime membership. From here on- Ronnie started aiming for the Olympia. The world of bodybuilding was about to witness something that it had never seen before. Ronnie Trained Hard. But Did He Train Smart? – Jay Cutler © YouTube 800 pound squat, 2,300 pound leg press, 200 pound dumbbell chest press. Ronnie, despite being a bodybuilder, trained a lot like power-lifters. The weight he lifted on a regular basis astounded all his peers and raised eyebrows about his health. A brief look at his training videos and you will realize how he guzzled weight. All this heavy lifting had to have consequences and it did. Injuries And An Absolutely Ruined Old Age © YouTube At 46 years old, Ronnie's spine is in a complete mess. So much so, that he can't even stand for minutes in a row, let alone standing with a straight spine. He walks with crutches and around the time of his surgeries resorts to a wheel chair. His low back disks were fitted with screws so as to avoid them from compressing on top of each other. He somehow broke those screws and along with the screws broke his disks where the screws were drilled. At this point, he literally has a broken back. Both of his hips too are preplaced. He recently came about the internet and told his fans that he might never be able to walk again. If all this isn't saddening, I don't know what it is. The Pain Of Seeing A Champ Go Down In Misery Ronnie has the money (10 million + net worth). He has kids and a loving wife. He can pay off for his treatment but all this isn't enough. It's pretty sure that he will never be able to stand up straight again, ever. Soon, he won't be walking too. Once the strongest bodybuilder is now is extreme physical misery simply because of how he trained for years. Through the 1.5 hours of the documentary, I felt the pain. Ronnie never thought this would happen and it's only getting worse.
  20. Dorain Yates, on Joe Rogan's podcast, once said that the exercises to build muscle will never change. And every day, in the gym, hustling my way through iron, I find this as the supreme truth. That's exactly what the old school exercises gave us- thick and big muscles. Fancy new school exercises are well, yeah, just fancy to look at. The big compound moves will always be the cornerstone of the muscular development. One such old school giving is the dumbbell pullover. Lost in time, this exercise was once a staple in every meathead's upper body routine. Now, not many people do it. Why and how did the pullover become such a controversial exercise? Let's decipher. The Dumbbell Pullover © Pinterest Right through the 50s till the early 70s, the dumbbell pullover was a staple chest and back exercise. Reg Park, Sergio Olivia, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Lou Feriggno and many other golden era kings advocated this exercise. The Disappearance Of The Pull-Over © Facebook Enter Arthur Nautilus, the man who introduced the pullover machine into the world of bodybuilding. Nothing was the same after that. Since the bodybuilders now had access to a more specific machine, the inclination towards the free weight dumbbell pullover diminished. Soon after, the 90s saw the exit of the pullover with the pompous entry of the functional fitness advocates. Bashed left, right and centre and the pullovers were labeled a 'shoulder-killer'. Does It Really Cause Shoulder Injuries? Almost any exercise done wrongly can cause injury. Either you are just too weak or simply lack the mobility to perform the pullover. Before jumping right into a pullover, check your over head shoulder pressing. Can you press with a full range of motion? If yes, go ahead. If no, you need mobility work. Can you do dead-hang pull-ups- all the way down and all the way up? If yes, you can try the pullover. To know whether if this exercise is for you or not, take a lighter weight and perform some initial reps. If you feel something weird in your shoulders, it's not for you. How Bros Do It Wrong! 1) Not bracing the core. 2) Dead straight arms by locking the elbow. Always maintain a slight bend. 3) Bending the elbows way too much and hence involving the triceps. How To Do It Right 1) First things first, tighten your core. 2) Use a moderately heavy weight to start with. 3) Don't lock the elbows into a straight arm. Keep a slight bend, not too much either. 4) Don't over-stretch in the over head position. 5) Keep the shoulders depressed (retracted) into the bench. What Does it Really Build Though? © Facebook Well, both. The pullover was once called the upper-body squat for a reason. It hits nearly every damn inch of your back and the chest. Depends on how you perform it, chest and back can be targeted separately. But all in all, it does hit both the muscle groups.
  21. Qualcomm and Apple are in the middle of a legal fight that concluded to an injunction against the Cupertino giant in court. The ruling prevents Apple from importing and selling multiple iPhone models in China. Qualcomm and Apple have been in a legal battle for a while and the Chinese courts' order specifically bars the company from selling the iPhone 6s, 6s Plus, 7, 7 Plus, iPhone 8, 8 Plus, and iPhone X. The iPhone XS, XS Max and XR are still going to be sold in China. It is also worthy to note that this ban only applies to China as the Chinese courts have no jurisdiction in international markets. © Reuters “Qualcomm's effort to ban our products is another desperate move by a company whose illegal practices are under investigation by regulators around the world,” Apple said in a statement. “All iPhone models remain available for our customers in China. Qualcomm is asserting three patents they had never raised before, including one which has already been invalidated. We will pursue all our legal options through the courts.” Qualcomm claims that Apple is apparently infringing Qualcomm patents which include users to adjust the size and appearance of photos. Qualcomm also claims that Apple is also infringing another patent which includes the procedure of managing apps on a smartphone. “We deeply value our relationships with customers, rarely resorting to the courts for assistance, but we also have an abiding belief in the need to protect intellectual property rights,” Qualcomm said in a statement. The company is upset that, “Apple continues to benefit from our intellectual property while refusing to compensate us.” © Twitter Apple has filed an appeal to overturn the court's decision and will fight the ban and are set to face off in court in April. Apple has been battling the San Diego based chipmaker since early 2017 and some companies in Apple's supply chain predict that the two companies will reach a settlement over Qualcomm's 5G tech.

  22. What would you do if you had the chance to interact with one of the world's most richest man that there is? Coming across such an opportunity would give us the power to shower them with some of our most eager questions! So, finally, when the opportunity presents itself, we will surely have the most superb (read eccentric) queries to pose to our heroes. © Reuters The world knows him as the face of Microsoft, or as the possessor of the former 'World's Richest Man' title. We are talking about Bill Gates, and the man is currently second only to Amazon's Jeff Bezos in terms of their riches. Gates holds the second rank on the list of world's richest men, and he is currently worth $90 billions as per Forbes' 'World Billionaires 2018' list. World's richest or not, generations of young students, entrepreneurs and professionals have been inspired by Gates' vision and achievements. Millions of people around the globe look up to him for the inspiration that he is. Similarly, Gates never disappoints his admirers and tries to interact with them as often as possible. © Reuters During his last interaction,Gates participated in an AMA (Ask Me Anything) session on social networking site Reddit. While numerous questions were posed by eager participants, the response to UncomfortableChuckle's question has shed new light on Bill Gates beliefs and ideologies. UncomfortableChuckle asked Bill Gates, “If you could give 19-year-old Bill Gates some advice, what would it be?” and Gates' response has been nothing less than a revelation. One read, and we realise that such clarity of thought and depth in perception only comes from experiencing life and being at the very top of the financial ladder. © Reuters Yet, every word that left Gates' mouth in response to the question are such gems, that we cannot help but admit that no school in the world would ever want us to learn about it. However, Gates swears by it and we can totally understand why. Here's the advice Bill Gates would like to give his younger self, that we can relate to as well: “I would explain that smartness is not single dimensional and not quite as important as I thought it was back then. I would say you might explore the developing world before you get into your forties. I wasn't very good socially back then, but I am not sure there is advice that would fix that — maybe I had to be awkward and just grow up?” © Reuters Allow us to break it down for your better understanding. There seem to be three very significant things that Gates is talking about, and here is exactly what you need to know about the life-altering advice: 1. Unlike What School Tries To Tell You, Being Smart Isn't Everything What Gates seems to be saying at the very onset is that smartness comes in many shapes and sizes, and it isn't the only prerogative that promises success. On the other hand, Bill Gates is actually suggesting that one must keep the curiosity alive and never stop gaining more knowledge. 2. Travel Should Top Your To-Do List Bill Gates then suggests that exploring the world while one is still young and able should turn into a priority. Travelling around the world and exploring new places and cultures allows a person to become more perceptive and aware, which helps them gain personal and professional insights. © Reuters One such exploration in South Africa changed Bill Gates and his wife's perception when they witnessed what extreme poverty and diseases looked it. Gates called the experience “phenomenal” and the couple later went on to establish the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, to fight poverty and hunger around the world. 3. Being Shy Doesn't Make You 'Weird' The last thing Gates pointed out was that being shy isn't as weird as people suggest it to be. One should be okay with how they are, shy or not, and make the most of their strengths. Surely you remember how our teachers told the shy kids in the class to “speak up more often”, “participate more often” and the likes. All of this makes complete sense. The man gets the things our school hardly ever understood.
  23. Fights and tiffs are an inevitable part of any healthy relationship. After all, if you aren't having the occasional (and NOT habitual!) tiffs with your girlfriend, there's something seriously flawed with your relationship. But as healthy as those occasional fights can be, making up with your girlfriend after a fight can be an agonizingly painful exercise. And considering the onus will almost always lie upon you to make things right, this task becomes even more daunting. And so, to help you get out of such a predicament, here are four simple yet effective ways of making up with your girlfriend that will put you right back in her good books: 1) Give Her Time AND Space Before you do anything else to make up with your girlfriend, you need to absolutely make sure that you give her enough time AND space to get in the right frame of mind. After all, you won't be able to achieve ANYTHING, let alone fix her mood, when she's still reeling from the anger or annoyance of the tiff. So give her time to calm herself down, and you can then move on to the next step. Which brings us to... 2) Don't Shy Away From Having A Conversation If you give her the time and space to tone down her anger, chances are that she'd want to talk to you about the fight you guys had. Now, most guys tend to run away from conversations like these, primarily because they really don't know how to navigate their way through them without making things worse. Well, if you have the conversation with an open mind, actively LISTEN to what she's saying, and acknowledge your screw-ups, you'll be able to put forward your own point of view without turning her off. On the contrary, she'll be more likely to understand and listen to your grievances if you listen to hers. 3) Get Her A Gift © iDiva While we are not advocating for you to solely take the materialistic route, getting your girlfriend a gift, as a means of making up with her, does make for a sweet gesture that can help lighten up her mood and ease the tension. Avoiding cliche tropes like flowers or chocolates is advisable, especially since the entire point of gifting her something is to make up for a fight. So try and opt for a more personalized gift, or opt for something that you know she'd love to own. Pro Tip: If you are finding it a bit challenging to get her a gift, something which we are certain is a predicament that most guys out there will find themselves in, you can check out the iDiva Beauty Box for your girl. 4) Take Her Out To A Place She Will Love © Dharma Productions Finally, you should think about taking her out to a place she will love. This can be anything, from a movie she's been wanting to watch for the longest while or a restaurant that she absolutely loves to dine at, to even a nearby city or hill station that she's been wanting to explore. Apart from helping cheer up her mood, it will surely make her forget all about the fight you both had just a few hours (or days) ago!
  24. iPhone pre-orders have kicked off globally and the phone is scheduled to start shipping from October 26. It is expected to sell a lot more, thanks to its considerably lower starting price of US$ 750, instead of iPhone X's US$ 999. According to reputed analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, the new iPhone XS and XS Max both exceeded Apple's expectations, and the iPhone XR will continue the streak. The iPhone XR has been slightly delayed due to a few setbacks in production, but despite the delay, anticipation for the phone has been least affected. Now that online pre-orders have opened up, we have a clearer idea of how good the demand is. A few colour options like yellow and PRODUCT(RED) iPhone XR models from T-Mobile won't ship out for one to two weeks. © CNBC Even in the UK, the coral and yellow models are estimated to have at least 1-2 weeks of minimum shipping gap. T-Mobile has already sold out the 128GB and 256GB yellow version of the phone and the same goes for the coral and red 128GB models. For now, Apple opened up pre-orders for contract phones only, SIM-free models of the iPhone XR aren't included, meaning there may be a shortage of supply. Though, the SIM-free variant will be making its way to international markets soon. © Apple The USA and UK have reported only delayed shipping as of now, but given the trend, it won't be surprising to see them completely run out of stocks soon. The iPhone XR is designed to take some load off the iPhone XS and XS Max, and with a lower price tag, the user base further expands. The iPhone XR sports a 6.1-inch LCD display and a notch that has the same Face ID array we see on the elder siblings. The rear has a 12-megapixel single wide angle lens on and the front has a 7-megapixel sensor. It runs the same A12 Bionic chipset and brings in all the latest machine learning and artificial intelligence features. © The Verge The phone is available for pre-order in India as well, and is priced at Rs 76,900, while its 128GB variant costs Rs 81,900. The 256GB storage version can be purchased at Rs 91,900. It can be pre-ordered online from Airtel, Jio, Paytm Mall, and Amazon and offline from resellers like iWorld, Imagine, and others.

  25. When it comes to smartphones, people tend to look at specifications with more importance than what's actually working behind the scenes —especially in India. Sure, there are smartphones out there with specifications that can rival an entry level laptop, but what if you could do more with less? That's exactly what Google has implemented with the new Pixel 3 and 3 Xl, a strategy similar to Apple. The Google Pixel 3 and 3 XL have a new edge-to-edge display and also a new camera system, that utilises artificial intelligence (AI) to improve image quality. It houses the Snapdragon 845 processor under the hood and is coupled with 4GB of RAM. The smartphone does not have 10GB or 8GB of RAM to function because it simply does not require it. Pixel 3 XL and Pixel 3 come with Android 9 Pie out of the box and has some nifty features that are exclusive to these handsets. Let's find out how the smartphone performed during our tests and will it be able to compete with other flagship devices in the market: Design & Display © MensXP_Akshay Bhalla © MensXP_Akshay Bhalla Both Pixel 3 smartphones look similar to their predecessors apart from a bigger 6.3-inch display with QHD+ resolution. The screen looks more colourful and vivid when compared to the previous generation and has a massive notch on the XL variant. At the back, the smartphone has a glass back with some sort of matte finish that basically helps in holding the smartphone more securely. The matte finish is also a great way to avoid fingerprints at the back which I detest on other smartphones from this year. © MensXP_Akshay Bhalla We got the Clearly White variant for review which looks elegant, minimalistic and alluring to the eye. Both smartphones definitely have a distinct look which can be spotted from a kilometre away. At the back, you also have the fingerprint sensor in the middle which can also be used to scroll down notification panel if you like to use the smartphone with one hand. © MensXP_Akshay Bhalla You will be happy to know that this year the Pixel 3 XL has a better and more colourful OLED panel. In fact, a recent teardown of the smartphone revealed it is a Samsung OLED panel which is considered to be the best in the industry. We used it to watch an episode of 'Stranger Things' and all the darker tones were represented accurately on the screen. The colourful 80s vibe in the episodes looked plush and we faced no discolouration issues during the course of our review. The brightness, on the other hand, could have been better as we got a reading of 359 nits which is far less when compared to iPhone XS' 600 figure. The Best Smartphone Camera On The Planet © MensXP_Akshay Bhalla Whether you want to accept it or not, the primary use of a smartphone in 2018 is taking kickass pictures followed by communication. Sure, people use their smartphones to game and listen to music, however, our research shows otherwise. Google also knows this fact and managed to deliver us arguably the best smartphone camera on the planet. Google managed to achieve this with a single 12.2MP f/1.8 aperture lens and some super cool AI computation. A new feature called 'Top Shot' is probably our favourite feature, where the Pixel 3 takes a burst of images and selects the best one for you. You can even adjust the depth of field after taking a picture which has been previously seen in Samsung smartphones. At the front, Google has opted to go with a dual camera setup where one lens is wide angle. The other lens is an 8MP selfie shooter that works like you would expect it to. The wide-angle lens causes more interest here as we can now fit in more people in a selfie picture than ever before. Other features like Super Res Zoom also manages to capture details that we didn't expect from a single rear camera. Here are some sample images for you to drool on: View this post on Instagram #Pixel3 making my wife look prettier than any Bollywood actress. #madebygoogle #teampixel A post shared by Akshay Bhalla (@editorinchief) on Oct 12, 2018 at 5:07am PDT View this post on Instagram Portrait mode on the #Pixel3 works like a charm on puppies too! #puppy #technology #dogsofinstagram A post shared by Akshay Bhalla (@editorinchief) on Oct 12, 2018 at 11:28pm PDT View this post on Instagram I'm not a big fan of selfies but damn the #Pixel3 can take some awesome pictures.

Unbelievable. pic.twitter.com/3pqPHVL8eF — Akshay Bhalla (@Bhallanator) October 13, 2018 Low-light photography on the #Pixel3 #noedit pic.twitter.com/IZ0euJdi0d — Akshay Bhalla (@Bhallanator) October 12, 2018 Testing out the Super Res Zoom on the #Pixel3 in New York. pic.twitter.com/eGtEKWhQMh — Akshay Bhalla (@Bhallanator) October 12, 2018 Performance © MensXP_Akshay Bhalla As mentioned before, the Pixel 3 XL has a Snapdragon 845 processor and 4GB of RAM which results in a very smooth experience thanks to Google's custom stock Android experience. Having said that, the benchmark scores weren't as impressive, as the phone only managed to score 2382 in single-single-core and 8343 in multi-score Geekbench 4 test. In the 3DMark Slingshot Extreme test the Pixel 3 XL reached 4,342, which is less when compared to the iPhone XS Max (4,370). © MensXP_Akshay Bhalla The biggest disappointment with the Pixel 3 XL will be its battery life. It's enough to get you through the day however if you like to game or are a heavy user, you will end up charging it more than once in a day. We used the smartphone for instant messaging, web browsing, navigation and some gaming and the battery was already at 35% by 4:00 PM. Sure, it comes with a fast charger that will juice up the battery to 60% in 30 minutes, it's still inconvenient to have a smartphone that does not have enough battery life if you're a heavy user. The Final Say The Pixel 3 XL starts at Rs. 83,000 for which you're getting the best smartphone camera on the planet and some awesome Ai features. It may not be the best-looking smartphone camera out there, but look at some of the pictures you can take with this beast and it will definitely drop jaws. Pixel 3 also offers the best software experience you can expect from an Android device. We would have loved to see a larger battery so that it could last longer, however, Google's latest offerings still classify as a flagship for us. If you love to take awesome pictures, this phone is a no-brainer.
