  1. There is something about wearing formals that makes you stand out in the crowd. The suit places you in a superior position in the power dynamics in meetings. The blazer makes you look smart, spiffy and suave all at once. There is no denying that the suit is also extremely sexy when worn to a date. However, a suit can't be worn as often as we may like it. Not all settings present themselves as deserving for a formal suit. In these scenarios wearing a suit comes across as over-dressed and odd. However, that doesn't mean you ditch the magnificent blazer completely. There are ways you can wear the blazer without making it look too formal. 1. Ditch pants for a pair of jeans whose shade matches your blazer. This creates the illusion of a two piece without being one. If it's a chilled out lunch meeting client, you could even pair it with cool sneakers. © Instagram 2. Try pairing chinos with blazers. While chinos are usually associated with a more casual setting, add a blazer and voila! It's work ready. © Instagram 3. In winters, pair your blazer with a hoodie underneath. It gives uber cool vibe and looks great. Exhibit A. © Instagram 4. Another quirky option is adding graphic tees in the outfit. Add a funky graphic tee underneath your hoodie like this: © Instagram 5. A kurta under a blazer looks like a pair that won't work but look at Vir Das and Ayushmann work it, and we bet you'll want to try it too. You could experiment with both short kurtas and long ones. With long ones, make sure the shade matches that of the blazer. © Instagram © Instagram 6. A turtleneck under a blazer is a classic. It makes men look adorable. Rajkummar Rao is one person who can really pull it off. © Instagram So you now know that you don't have to be Mr. Overdressed for your love for the blazer. In fact, you'll be inspiring people with your #OOTDs.

  3. There was a time when games would first come to iOS, followed by Android. This is now rapidly changing and developers are often prioritizing the open source platform, thanks to the larger available user base. While 2018 has been all about battle royale games like PUBG and Fortnite, there are thousands of simulation and arcade games that are equally fun to play and less time intensive. With the new year already here, now's a good time to reboot the available games on your phone and try something different. We've compiled a list of trending games for Android that are fun to play and are challenging as well! 1. Command and Conquer: Rivals © Android Central Command & Conquer: Rivals is a real-time player versus player (PvP) game, where gamers lead their faction to victory in the war for Tiberium, a key resource. EA's new Command & Conquer: Rivals was designed with mobile platforms like Android in mind. The game offers players two factions: The Global Defense Initiative and Brotherhood of Nod. Each faction has different commanders with different abilities. In the new mode, EA said players go on a run of battles, competing with others in a unique matchmaking pool. Competition is segmented by rank. The better people perform, the more rewards they receive. While the game works fine on mobile, it is even more convenient and fun to play on a tablet. Download from Google Play Store 2. Assassin's Creed Rebellion © EA You can grab Assassin's Creed Rebellion off the Play Store for free, though advertisements are included along with in-game purchases. According to the listing, you'll find access to over 40 characters, some old and some new, building a group of assassin to take on the Templars and oppression taking place in Spain. You'll be able to manage your own base of assassins, build new rooms, craft new equipment, gather resources and create new medicine. You'll be building up your assassin army and expanding your domain, all the while pulling off missions, similar to Fallout Shelter. Download from Google Play Store 3. F1 Mobile Racing © YouTube You can develop and customise your own F1 car from the ground up, or race for one of the 10 official F1 teams. In the multi-player mode, you can challenge opponents from around the world, or add up your friends to race. It also features official circuits, including Hockenheim in Germany. It doesn't end here, you can also assume the role of legends like Lewis Hamilton, Sebastian Vettel, Max Verstappen and Fernando Alonso. The graphics are stunning and the gameplay is top-notch. In fact, we can confidently say this is one of the best simulation/racing game for Android. Download form Google Play Store 4. Asphalt 9: Legends © Gameloft Gameloft has retained the frenetic, cinematic action that made the earlier games so popular and taken things up another notch. The game is free to download but features ads and in-app purchases. This game features a top roster of real hypercars from manufacturers like Ferrari, Porsche, Lamborghini and W Motors. Gamers can start their street journey in Career mode by completing over 60 seasons and 800 events. Gamers can race against up to 7 rival plays from all over the world in the online multiplayer mode. Other features include a new Club mode where you and your friends can work towards achieving more challenging rewards, as well as 8-player local multiplayer. Download from Google Play Store 5. Skiddy Car © YouTube Compared to other simulation games, the controls on this one are fairly simple. Just tap to turn right, release to turn left and drift your way to the finish line. Sounds easy? The actual experience is extremely challenging and requires focus. If you want a game that gets you hooked and constantly tests you, this one is definitely built keeping you in mind. It has a wide collection of vehicles to choose from, the graphics are colourful, and the tracks have different designs as well. Overall, it's a light game to pass time quickly. Download from Google Play Store 6. Rise Up © YouTube The goal of the game is simple, you are tasked with protecting a balloon as it rises through various obstacles, and it shouldn't hit anything. With a single finger, you have to drag a circle around it to deflect the objects and obstacles that appear. All you need to do is move your shield with one finger to protect your balloon. Clear your way as you reach higher and higher, but reaching the top score is extremely difficult. This is another game that is exceedingly light and best for short duration fun. Download from Google Play Store 7. HeliHopper © Oddrok HeliHopper is a fun helicopter game where you hop from a helipad to another. It has missions, endless mode, tons of unlockables and a simple UI. The game is controlled by a simple slingshot mechanism and you can perform side-hops in the air by swiping the screen during the flight. Wind and various landing pads make things even more tricky. In total, it has 65 missions and 9 endless levels to choose from, along with 10 different helicopters. Download from Google Play Store

  5. PUBG Mobile and Fortnite have been sensational in 2018 and the craze is yet to fade. While these games undoubtedly redefined the capabilities of mobile gaming on a larger scale, they've also proven to be extremely resource intensive and often addictive. In the past, we've seen games like Temple Run and Pokemon Go become instant hits and the ones who started early ruled the leaderboards. We've compiled a list of games for iOS devices that you should be playing right now. These aren't exhaustive for the phone and also offer the right combination of fun, without the addiction! 1. Garena Free Fire - Winterland © Malavida It is a survival shooter game wherein the player is placed onto a remote island for ten minutes and pitted against 49 players, and the ultimate survivor wins. This game belongs to the infamous battle royale genre, but add a lot of different twists to it. You can freely choose your starting point and should aim to stay within the safe zone all the time. You can also create a squad of four players and pit against various other teams. How is this different from PUBG? The game is built to be short, so you don't end up spending almost an hour playing just one round. Get it here 2. Helix Jump © YouTube If you are in the mood for a cool and challenging reaction game, you should try Helix Jump. Your goal is to make the bouncing ball descend as much as possible as it jumps constantly on the same spot. In this game, you don't control the ball at all, but you get to turn the platform around to make the ball fall down through the gaps. How long will you last though? Get it here 3. Press Inc © Ruby Games Like seeing those satisfying videos on YouTube about various things getting crushed under a hydraulic press? This game intends to bring the same concept in a more interactive way. You can crush literally anything, starting with a cake to a nuclear fuel pod, anything! Why play the game? It is human to vent out stress by breaking things. Why go through actual physical damage when you can experience the same virtually? This game has actually helped many relieve stress in a non-lethal way, and besides, it's always fun to see a hydraulic press working! Get it here 4. Modern Combat 5 © Gameloft While it is common to see PC games getting mobile versions these days, it is really rare to see mobile games get made into a PC game, which is happening for Gameloft's Modern Combat 5. Modern Combat 5 is an intense FPS that puts you in control of one of 10 unique soldier classes, each packing their own unique arsenal, skills, and personality. You can completely customize your combat style by first choosing a class to play as, then unlock new skills as you level up, and equip advanced tactical suits and weapon attachments to fine-tune your capabilities. Get it here 5. Left To Survive © YouTube As the name suggests, you need to defend yourself from oncoming zombie attacks in a post-apocalyptic world. Build your encampment to defend yourself against enemy attacks and attack using rifles, grenades, shotguns, and anything in your arsenal. As you climb up the levels, new addition includes a helicopter for aerial attacks as well as challenging Zombie bosses. Another interesting aspect of the game is its intense PvP mode wherein you can test your skills against live players. Get it here 6. Need For Speed: No Limits © EA Need For Speed: No Limits is a free racing game that delivers short but intense races as you blast through an underground street racing circuit. You can heavily customize your car, and the branded cars actually include Ferrari, Lamborghini, McLaren, Pagani, Koenigsegg, Hennessey, and more.

Being free to play, NFS: No Limits features a variety of in-game and premium currency systems, as well as a fuel system. Get it here 7. Egg Inc © AUX Brain While the Instagram egg has been the hottest word in town, this game is about a future in which eggs unlock the secrets of the universe. The very nature of the idle game allows players to do nothing and still be rewarded, occasionally pressing a button to increase the reward or the speed at which they are rewarded. Hatch chickens, build hen houses, hire drivers, and commission research to build the most advanced egg farm in the world. Basically, a modern day Farmville for eggs! Get it here
  6. Setting up LED light strips is not something new as gamers have been using this technique for their setups for a while. However, with home automation becoming more accessible and IFTTT is advancing at a rapid pace to make it more affordable. You can control lights from your smartphone and change colours with infinite possibilities. You can setup different moods, lighting effects and scenes straight from the palm of your hand. Currently, the only two reliable brands that sell smart LED light strips in India are Phillips and Yeelight. I chose the latter to set up my room because it costs exactly half as much as the Phillips Hue light strip. © MensXP/Akshay Bhalla The Yeelight Aurora Smart LED Light strip costs Rs 3,200 in India while the Phillips equivalent costs Rs 6,000. Of course, I would end up using the cheaper option because it does the same exact job for cheaper. You can always use other light strips from other brands; however, we aren't sure about whether their ecosystems or even their apps are reliable. © MensXP/Akshay Bhalla A smart LED strip can be used for various purposes, such as lighting up the back end of a TV/Monitor so that it reduces eye strain. We can even use these light strips for indoor decorations during parties or for festivals like Diwali. What's cool is that you can even sync the Yeelight Smart LED Light strip with some of their other lighting products to get that uniform look. The Yeelight lightstrip supports 16 million colors and goes up to 140 lumens, which results in better illumination at a really affordable price. How To Set It Up Setting up the Yeelight Smart LED light strip is quite simple and straight forward. You will need to follow these steps below to get started: 1. Download the Yeelight app on your Android/iOS device. 2. Launch the app to see your listed products i.e. the Yeelight Smart LED Light strip. 3. Follow instructions to pair your device and light strips using Wi-FI and Bluetooth 4. If you need to reset your Yeelight LED Light strip, follow this instructional video below: 5. You're now ready to use the light strip How To Customise Colours And Set Scenes Once you're all setup, you can change the colours of your light strip according to your liking. I chose the colour red as all my PC components were also using the same hue and I like uniformity in my workspace. All you need to do is go to the device page, tap on your product and then select your colour to your liking. You can even change the brightness level to your liking, this comes in handy when you're watching a movie or having a date night. © Akshay Bhalla If you don't want to manually change colours every single time, you can also setup scenes so that you don't have to manually tap on a colour each time. You can also add lighting effects/moods in scenes such as a sunrise effect or night mode. In my party scene, I've setup a yellow light that would flicker like a candle. You can also customise the number of times you want the light to flicker and the duration in the customisations tab. As we said before, lighting effects are limitless if you know what you're doing. Automation The great thing about the Yeelight Smart LED that is compatible with Google Assistant and Amazon Echo. It even works with Siri Shortcuts if you are an iPhone that works similarly to aforementioned voice assistants. Here's how you set it up with Google Assistant Open the Google Home app and tap on the Add icon. Select Set up device Works with Google and search for Yeelight. Tap on it to open the Xiaomi login page. This action will link your Xiaomi account and your Google Home account. Sign in using the same credentials that you used to sign-in to your Yeelights app. Assign the Yeelight Smart Light strip to a room Give a nickname if you want to use your own phrase Siri Shortcuts © Akshay Bhalla Siri Shortcuts work only after you setup a scene on the Yeelight app. After setting up you can add a Siri Shortcut straight from the Yeelight App and it will ask you record your phrase. Since I have two scenes setup, I've recorded my phrases as “Turn on Gaming Lights”or “Turn on Party Lights”. So there you have it, you can now have super cool looking room that is completely automated. You can always use cheaper LED light strips that come with a remote to change colours. However, since these aren't compatible with Digital voice assistants or have IFTTT support, you will be limited to using single colours and lack customisation options.
  7. Apple has introduced some cool and hidden features on iOS which you can find deep within the settings menu in iPhones. You can check out all the hidden iOS 12 tricks we found during our tests here. Having said that, there's a new tip going viral that allows users to use their iPhone as a microphone if you own a pair of AirPods. It works even if you are far away thanks to the Bluetooth technology on board. If u have AirPods ð§, u can press “Live Listen” to “On” and leave your phone in the room with someone and u can hear what they saying, thank me later𤫠pic.twitter.com/fC6KYmqpB4 — arnold (@arnoldcrndo) January 9, 2019 The feature was spotted on Twitter and is called “Live Listen” which basically turns your iPhone into a listening device. The person who tweeted about the feature said that it could be used as a way to cheat on a test. © MensXP After checking out the feature for ourselves, “Live Listen” is targeted towards people with hearing loss. It was introduced in a software update in September for Apple's AirPods and basically lets people with hearing listen in via the Bluetooth enabled earbuds. Basically, after turning on the feature you can point your phone towards the person you want to hear speak. You basically get to hear what the person is saying through the hearing aid feature on the AirPod. Apple describes it as "Made for iPhone hearing aids, sound processors, and now AirPods can help you have better conversations in loud places. Just turn on the Live Listen feature and move your iPhone toward the people you're talking with.¹ Live Listen uses the microphone to pick up what they're saying more clearly.” Here's how you can turn on the “Live Listen” feature: © Twitter Go to Settings Control Center Customize Controls. Turn on Hearing. 2. Put AirPods in the ear and open Control Center 3. Tap the ear icon, it should say “Live Listen” 4. To get clear audio, place the iPhone's chin facing the person to hear what they have to say. It is unclear if Apple is already aware of the situation, and if it will do something about it. Perhaps can bring in a new update where it would play a sound to alert people around the phone that the Live Listen feature is activated. For now, please be responsible and respect other people's privacy.
  8. PUBG has taken over the Indian gaming scene ever since it was available for free on smartphones.

  9. Nobody likes to be snooped upon, and with chatting becoming our primary medium of communication, it's always best to safeguard these apps. Up till now, you'd have to depend on third-party app lockers or ROM support to lock them using a PIN, Pattern or Fingerprint. But thanks to a new oncoming update, you won't need external help anymore. © Reuters WhatsApp is currently working on adding fingerprint authentication on Android, according to a report by WABetaInfo. In a separate report, WhatsApp was said to be working on a similar feature for iOS with support for two biometric authentication methods – Face ID and Touch ID. © Apple These in-app locking mechanisms aren't new and a plethora of apps have been locking themselves in a similar way. While a lot of IMs are trying to incorporate this, financial apps have long depended on these sources of authentication. The report notes that the feature currently has no timeline for when it will be released to users, but it is definitely in the works. The feature will allow users to unlock WhatsApp and all the chats inside it using the same fingerprint scanner that you will use to unlock the phone. WhatsApp hasn't officially announced the feature yet. But it has already been spotted in recent beta versions of the application. © Reuters It is worth pointing out here that WhatsApp does not have any in-app lock feature. Last year, Alan Kao, a Software Engineer at WhatsApp, had acknowledged that the company had received a lot of request for such a feature. Currently, the WhatsApp app supports two-step authentication with a code. Once users turn on this feature, the code is required to log in to the app, though not always. The code is asked once in a week to continue encryption of chats. © MensXP While you always have the option of using a third party locker, an inbuilt functionality is always prefered as you don't have to mess with pesky ads, and the number of background processes is reduced. The outlet notes that the functionality is still at the alpha stage of development, suggesting it'll be months before it actually launches. Additionally, the report also stated that the new WhatsApp beta version will also get a new and improved Audio picker where users will be able to preview the audio files before sending them.

  10. CES (Consumer Electronics Show) is the world's largest tradeshow for everything electronics and will be starting this week in Las Vegas. All the latest products and technologies are unveiled at the event, and due to the exponentially huge number of companies trying to make a mark, we often see them take a dig at one another. This year, Apple has a strong message for Google, Amazon and a plethora of other companies who utilize user data for advertisements. “What happens on your iPhone, stays on your iPhone,” says a billboard facing the Las Vegas Convention Center. This is right outside CES 2019, and while Google and other companies actively participate at the tradeshow, Apple has always kept a distance. © Twitter / Chris Velazco Apple has also mentioned the link to its privacy website where users can better understand the data policies of iPhones. Even though the company has no official affiliation with the industry event, it sure wants to send across a strong message. The timing is even more interesting because Apple has revised its revenue forecast due to lower than expected sales of the iPhone. The statement is similar to the popular statement, "what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas." Also, while Google's ads are filled with colours, Apple has opted for a black and white only palette, indirectly meaning it's damn serious. © Twitter / LVMonorail As far as technicalities are concerned, Apple isn't wrong with the ad. Even though iPhone's have suffered some really embarrassing bugs in the last few years, privacy is one point that always remains unhindered. iOS is crystal clear about these privacy norms and doesn't let any app or service access your data without explicit permission. Even if we ignore third-party services, Apple never "processes" your usage data to target ads. On the other hand, Google is definitively an "advertising" company and relies on metadata to feed your phone with relevant ads. Amazon too had a number of dubious moments last year with the latest case being-- Amazon sharing 1,700 Alexa recordings of a man with a stranger. © Reuters After the Cambridge Analytica scandal, even the end user is more aware of data privacy and the industry has undergone drastic changes. Companies have been trying their best to convince people their data is safe. Apple's CEO Tim Cook has also been very vocal about user privacy in recent times. He also called on tech companies to essentially to “deidentify customer data or not to collect it in the first place.” While the Apple vs Google fight will go on indefinitely, these snarky ads are surely very entertaining for us.
  11. Benchmarks in the smartphone industry are rising every month, and it is at its peak right now. With a plethora of options to choose from, it becomes a daunting task for the end consumer to pick one. Brands have been increasingly getting aggressive in terms of pricing and to differentiate themselves from the rest, they have spent billions on research. The ultimate winner of this conflict is the end buyer. Every aspect of the phone is being improved upon, this includes the display, cameras, design, as well as processor. Companies are also doubling down their efforts on improving long-term software support and battery life. So if you're out and about to get your hands on a new phone, here's a list of the top smartphones right now. 1.

The four rear sensors are -- a 24-megapixel lens with f/1.7 aperture, a 10-megapixel telephoto lens with f/2.4 aperture and 2X optical zoom, an 8-megapixel 120-degree ultra wide lens with f/2.4 aperture and finally a 5-megapixel depth sensor with f/2.2 aperture. The front has a 24-megapixel selfie shooter that supports facial recognition.
  12. We barely need to delete images for making space on our phones any more, thanks to more than sufficient internal storage. 64GB of internal storage has pretty much become a standard feature now, and expandable storage via a microSD card pushes the limit further. But, this also means we no longer have the habit of taking backups. Earlier when storage was a privilege, we would periodically take a backup of all our photos, clear the device, and use it again. This way, even if you lost your phone or device, a backup copy of the data is still available with you. Offline backup is age-old, but the concept remains the same. Offline: © Adafruit Industries You transfer your pictures from the phone to another flash drive like a spare microSD card, SSD hard drive, or even your computer. Plug-in the cable, select "View Files" and copy paste all the content. But, this process too is primitive and lacks advanced functionality. On Android, apps are specially built that aim to make taking backups even simpler and hassle-free. And, these apps don't just cover your pictures, but also contacts, calendar, SMS, and in some cases even app data. A few of these apps are CM Backup, Super Backup, Easier Backup, and many more. © MensXP You can also completely eliminate the use of a computer by using internal storage only for regular use. Then, insert a microSD card to take backups and transfer all the internal data to the external card. Once done, eject the card and keep it safe. This way, you can quickly take backups on the go, and won't confuse yourself with all the data that's combined in both the storages. For iOS users, the offline process is slightly tricky. You can't just connect your iPhone to the PC and copy-paste files. Firstly, you'll have to install iTunes on your Windows PC, login with the same Apple ID that's loaded on your phone, and then establish a connection. Once connected, the software suite will offer a lot more than just backups. © Digital Trends You have the option of importing photos or even taking complete iPhone backups. The complete backup will include everything, right from apps to system settings. Lastly, the same software can be used to load music or soundtracks from your PC to iPhone and even manage Apple Music library. If you're taking backups on a computer, we recommend using the T5 SSD Hard Drive. And if you're using a microSD, the SanDisk Class 10 128GB card is highly recommended. Online: © Pexels This is a much simpler and worry-free process since you don't have to perform any task after the initial setup. While Android and iOS have different offline backup methods, the online procedure remains common, thanks to an open app ecosystem. You can use a variety of services from Google, Microsoft and Apple to store data in the cloud. We'll start with Google's services -- Drive and Photos. Essentially, they are two different apps that pretty much do the same thing. The Drive app lets you manage everything, starting from pictures to zip files. On the other hand, the Photos app is built for pictures only and comes with AI-powered recognition that auto-creates albums, recognises pictures, and makes going through your gallery a lot simpler. © Google Ultimately, both the apps are interconnected with the rest your Google utilities like Gmail. You'll get 15GB storage free for lifetime, and you can choose to purchase additional storage later depending on requirement. Both, the Drive and Photos app, are capable of uploading your camera roll in the background when connected to a WiFi connection and charge simultaneously. Microsoft has its OneDrive service that is similar to Google's offerings. It has its own ecosystem for email, documents, and storage. It has one app that does everything, the OneDrive app. You can manage your files, it's connected to Office apps, and pictures get auto-compiled into albums thanks to AI recognition. Though, you get just 5GB free in the base tier. The OneDrive app is compatible with Android as well as iOS. © Microsoft Lastly, you can use iCloud, though this one is restricted to Apple users. The service is deeply integrated into all Apple products and is capable of storing even app data. You get 5GB in the free tier, and complete device backups are possible. Though, sharing outside of the ecosystem can often be tricky.
  13. At the end of every year, the world gets divided into certain categories - 'The New Year, New Me' group, 'I will make new resolutions and follow them religiously' group, 'I will make resolutions but will never follow them' group, 'I will get in shape this year and stop eating junk' group, 'I will not be single this year' group and 'let's finally go to Goa in 2019 group admin' group. Pexels While we are guilty of being a part of at least one of these categories, there is something common amongst all of us - the urge to know what the new year has to offer. So, as we have officially entered 2019, here's a look at what this year has in store for each and every Zodiac sign. ARIES - March 21 - April 20 Nothing will hold you back from making even your wildest dreams come true this year. You will get multiple opportunities to show how talented and capable you are.

Always remind yourself that nothing is impossible for you if you set your mind to it.

You will be sought by your friends and family members for advice in crucial matters. Hard work is the key to your success this year and you will manage to achieve it all with your genuine efforts.

  14. When life gets crazy and there are multiple things that you are stressing about, more than often, the first thing to go haywire is sleep. We don't get enough rest and are always somehow sleep-deprived! If you eat healthy and exercise regularly but still don't manage to squeeze in at least seven hours of sleep every night, you may undermine all your other efforts. You can still work towards your goal of a sound sleep with a fool-proof schedule or a purpose-built innovation designed to be the most effective sleep-inducer like the Bose Sleepbuds! This new product is the perfect thing to make sure that on-the-go millennials like us catch up on our sleep to avoid facing the perils of not getting enough sleep. But before talking more on the wonder product, here's a reality check of all the things that happen to your body when you don't sleep enough or well: 1. You Get Sick Unsplash Have you ever found yourself falling sick after having a very hectic schedule all week? That's your immune system getting its revenge. Losing sleep can impair your body's ability to fight off illness. This makes it easier to get sick. And there's even a reciprocal relationship between sleep and your immune system. You are more likely to lose additional sleep if your body is fighting off a bug and haven't had enough sleep. 2. You Gain Weight Unsplash If you've not been sleeping well, it can lead to you packing on a couple of kgs. A study examined the relationship between sleep and weight in 21,469 adults over the age of 20. It was found that people who slept less than 5 hours each night over the course of the three-year study were more likely to gain weight and eventually become obese. Those who slept between 7 and 8 hours fared better on the scale. 3. You're More Accident Prone Unsplash If you get 6 or fewer hours of sleep every night, you're three times more likely to be involved in a car accident, according to the National Sleep Foundation. The people most vulnerable are shift workers, commercial drivers, business travellers, and anyone else working long or odd hours. Think twice before getting behind the wheel if you're not sleeping enough. 4. Your Skin Suffers Unsplash Your looks suffer too! One research studied the relationship between sleep habits and the condition of the subjects' skin. The results revealed that those with too little sleep had more fine lines, wrinkles, uneven skin colour, and marked looseness of the skin. The poor sleepers were also more dissatisfied with their appearance than their well-rested counterparts. 5. Your Thinking Capabilities Deteriorate Unsplash Ever noticed how to tend to not think clearly or forget things if you miss even one night of sleep. In a study published by Experimental Brain Research, a group of 18 men was given a task to complete. The first task was completed following a full night's sleep. The next task was completed after skipping a night of sleep. Brain functions including memory, decision-making, reasoning, and problem-solving worsened, along with reaction time and alertness. We've all been there. Those nights when you just can't sleep because annoying sounds like snoring, traffic, and loud neighbours are keeping you awake. If you think you have not been sleeping well, don't worry! There is a new solution: a purpose-built innovation designed to be the most effective and comfortable in-ear noise masking solution on the market- the Bose Sleepbuds! Designed for comfort, these tiny, truly wireless sleepbuds deliver uniquely engineered sounds that mask unwanted noise and lull you to sleep. So you can wake up refreshed and ready to take on the day. They look like tiny headphones, but Bose noise-masking sleepbuds are uniquely designed for sleep. They don't stream music or have acoustic noise cancellation. Instead, they use pre-loaded, soothing masking sounds to cover up unwanted nighttime noises so you can get to sleep and stay asleep. If you've not been sleeping well, buy yourself a pair of sleepbuds here. And if you're a loud snorer, do your partner a favour and gift them a good night's sleep with this blessing!
  15. When the two Khans of Bollywood unite, the internet goes into a frenzy. An old video of the 'bhais' in arms having a karaoke session has gone viral. Salman and Shah Rukh Khan are jamming on the classic number 'pyar humein kis mode pe le aaya' . View this post on Instagram Epic stuff! This video of @beingsalmankhan and @iamsrk jamming together is sure to make your day. A post shared by Filmfare (@filmfare) on Dec 27, 2018 at 8:26pm PST The 'Karan-Arjun' of B-town had hit a rock bottom when their relationship got patchy a decade ago. They avoided attending parties and functions where they could meet eye to eye and fans were pretty sad with this bromance getting over. © Colors However, seems like the love is real and is not lost after all, because a few years ago, they buried their hatchet and got together. SRK even made an appearance on 'Bigg Boss' which was like making it official that the Khans were back together. Salman recently made an appearance in 'Zero' for a song. Well, all's well that ends well and now we want to call our 'bhai' for a jamming session of our own.
  16. A successful community manager is a combination of so many things. Being a successful community manager demands that you be a multi-faceted person and to apply a dynamic personality to a position that’s always in flux. You’re the authorized ambassador of your organization; you’re the chief moderator who sets and enforces community guidelines; and you’re the counselor and friend to all of your peers in the community. You may also be the one who updates your community suite, approves members, and manages the moderator team. Oh, and you find time to be the social media coordinator, digital designer-in-training, and all-around fantastic human being. You wear many hats and it can be challenging to juggle all of those hats. So what do you do? Take a breather. The good news is that you don’t have to wear all the hats, all the time. My head used to spin at the sheer amount of work that I faced as a solo community manager - especially when my community first started out – and I didn’t have a disciplined approach to community management. I didn’t even know what hats to wear! Over time, I’ve learned that there are specific ‘hats’ to community management. The best way to figure out which hats to juggle? Determine which hats are most important to you, which hats to wear for a specific goal, and which ones to swap out as your needs change. Create the change you believe in by wearing the right hat. Evangelist No matter the niche or industry, you should be a self-professed evangelist who is passionate and always learning about the topic. This personal interest will shine over time with your expertise in helping other users, bringing in new members with your helpful knowledge, and focusing discussion to evolving trends. You’re trusted as a leading voice of the community and your organization, and you can use your expertise to spread the positive impact of your organization’s mission. User Advocate You’re passionate about your users because you understand that the beating heart of your community is the valuable feedback, peer support, and testimonials that your users provide. You’re a champion of nurturing a positive and supportive community that’s aligned with your organizations’ goals. Customer service is a vital component to your team’s community outreach. Digital Marketer An effective community manager will engage people, even outside of the community. This means being a leading voice on external sites like blogs, partner communities, social media, industry events, and professional organizations. It extends the reach of your organization through non-traditional marketing and gives you and your community an online impact in relevant areas. Relationship Builder Part of your job is to be a networker for all the people around you and to be a bridge for authentic relationships. You want to listen to the ensuing conversations happening around your product, company, or industry, then add value and build relationships with key stakeholders both online and in-person. It’s especially important to build meaningful relationships within your organization to advocate for your organization’s mission through your community. Suite Administrator Finally, you should be an expert in Invision Community to leverage the built-in tools. Invision Community makes it easy for community managers of all technical backgrounds to get started and run successful communities. The more you learn of the Administrator and Moderator functionality, the more effective you become in supervising your community staff and driving your organization’s success. Community Management is one of the most exciting and rewarding roles in the modern web. It’s a position that’s filled with dynamism and people, and you grow yourself in ways that you never imagined. An effective community manager needs to extend herself by trying on new hats. And while some of these hats may be new to you at first, I encourage you to try all the hats and slowly develop your expertise in these new roles over time. Putting on more hats is the first step to becoming a more valuable and effective community manager. What hat do you wear today, and what hat do you want to wear tomorrow? No matter which new role you decide to embark upon, hats off to you for stepping up and growing yourself as a community manager. 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. Yes, it's a music festival and the number one reason to visit Sunburn is for the music. But sometimes, just sometimes, it can get a little too much, right? Don't worry, you won't have to leave the festival if you want a little break. There is a bunch of other stuff you can do there too. Here are a few of the activities you can partake in if you're looking for a break from the music: The Monster Remember how much fun we used to have jumping around a bouncy castle when we were kids? Too bad we grew up and aren't allowed to get on the bouncy castle anymore. Luckily for us though Sunburn is introducing us to the Monster. Source: Sunburn Festival A 300-meter castle with 40 obstacles that would be every kid's and even every adults dream. If you ever wanted to feel like a kid again, this is the perfect opportunity. Aqua Roller So what if it's winter. There's never a bad time for a quick dip in the pool. The days are quite pleasant even in December in Pune and you may come across multiple opportunities to enjoy a quick dip. Source: Sunburn Festival Not just any dip, a dip in the Aqua roller. The inflatable rollers make this pool all the more better. Kick Consider yourself to be as good as David Beckham? Think you have the precision to score a free kick from anywhere in the attacking third? Well, with Kick, you get a chance to prove your mettle. Source: Sunburn Festival This amazing game combines darts with football for a unique opportunity to have some fun. If your legs haven't started shaking to the music yet, perhaps you could get them moving here? Hot Air Baloon How many of us have actually been in a hot air balloon? We've certainly seen people flying in hot air balloons on the television. But, being in one yourself is a completely different experience we're sure. There's nothing like seeing the entire Sunburn Festival from high up in the sky. If you are an adventure seeker, be sure to give this one a shot. Twin Cycle There will eventually come a point when you're tired of walking. This is where the twin cycle comes into play. If everyone got regular cycles, it would have been fun too. But, with the twin cycle you and a friend get to cycle around together. Source: Sunburn Festival And if you're worried about looking good while cycling around the festival, don't. The LED lights have got you covered. It will be a ride to remember. We promise.

  19. Wireless Charging has been slowly gaining traction in the last few years and a wide range of phones support it today. Even though the practicality of using the technology has often been challenged, there is no doubt that it offers more convenience. Just keep your phone on the charger and you're good to go. © Youtube/Mobile Fun There are many out there who prefer a "fast wired charger", and for them, technology has been improving at a quick pace. Wireless Chargers too now support faster charging and with almost every other flagship phone being equipped with the tech, it's sure to take over the world soon. After all, we did slowly get over the headphone jack! For those who aren't aware, Wireless Charging is technically called Inductive Charging and uses an electromagnetic field to transfer energy. An induction coil in the charger creates a field while another coil in your phone receives it. These are our top recommendations for the best wireless chargers: 1. Belkin Boost Up: © Belkin Belkin has worked closely with Apple to design the charging pad and it's perfectly optimized for the iPhones. It supports the universal Qi protocol for wireless charging and hence can also work with supporting Samsung, LG, Sony, and Google phones. It supports 7.5W of charging and can also work with cases up to 3mm thin. A green LED light shows when your phone is correctly aligned on the pad and charging along with an amber light in case foreign objects are detected or the phone isn't placed properly. The surface is non-slippery and just for your peace of mind, it comes with two years warranty. Buy from Amazon.in 2. Samsung Wireless Charger Pad 2018: © Samsung Samsung's charging pad is built keeping the brand's smartphone offerings in mind. It looks similar to the Galaxy phone design language. Unlike Belkin's offering, this one supports charging up to 9W. Though, Samsung officially says the 9W figure is functional with compatible S and Note series phones only. The charger supports Qi wireless, meaning it can also charge your iPhone or other OEM devices. It also has a built-in fan that keeps your device cool and more efficiently charges it. Buy from Amazon.in 3. Google Pixel Stand: © Google The Pixel 3 supports wireless charging, but if you want to get the fastest wireless charging, you'll need the Pixel Stand (or another, Google-licensed 10W wireless charger). With a third-party charger, the transfer has been limited at 5W, which is base Qi speed. Though, the Pixel Stand can do more than just charging. Once paired with Google's new phone, it provides quick access to Google Assistant by voice or touch, along with shortcuts to popular Assistant commands. Buy from Google 4. Mophie Wireless Charger: © Mophie Just like a majority of other charging pads, this one too supports 7.5W wireless transfer and is compatible with Qi standards. Its base has a rounded outer edge and the cable slots into a recessed port along with a flush finish at the mat's edge. Also, this particular charger ships with a wall adapter in the box meaning that you'll be charging the moment you take it out of the box, a convenience that can't be said about thousands of options available out there. Buy from Amazon.in 5. Haavitek Wireless Charger: © Haavitek While most of the chargers here are directly from a smartphone maker or certified by one, the Haavitek charger is purely universal. It's built keeping all types of phones in mind and supports the Qi standard for transfer. This one is capable of 10W fast charging and has a design similar to the Pixel Stand, without the smart capabilities though. Compare to other chargers, this one is significantly cheaper. Buy from Amazon.in
  20. Famously, all Maria Carey wants for Christmas, is you. This is great news if you're a Maria Carey fan. As the holiday season draws closer and our staff chat channel turns to egg nog, twinkly lights and why is wrapping so hard, we asked the question: What would you like for Christmas? Brandon With so many children, Christmas is more focused on them and the family than myself. My eldest son who started college this year just returned home for the holiday season yesterday which has been awesome. You don't realize how it's like a piece of you is missing until they're back. I guess you could call that a Christmas present for me. Also, my wife and I took a quick 2 day cruise to the Bahamas as a gift to ourselves. My children have not requested very much for Christmas this year either, so my wife and I have decided we're going to plan a trip to Disney/Orlando for some time later in 2019 as a family gift instead of focusing on a bunch of little toys the kids will quickly get bored with. The family time together is the best Christmas gift to me. Awww Mark H In truth, what I’d like for Christmas isn’t something Sanata could provide. At my age I already have most of the “things” I simply want, and the things I really *need* I already have; family and friends. But… I wouldn’t object to Santa dropping off a new gaming computer with a motherboard for an Intel core i9, an RTX 2080 Ti video card, 16 GB of RAM, and one or two NVME SSD’s. Me too Andy I’ve been trying to de-clutter my life for most of the year so hopefully I won’t get much in the way of stocking fillers and things that are fun for a few days and then pushed in a drawer. I’m not a total Scrooge though, honest. I’m really looking forward to spending time with family and friends, Christmas Day walks in the snow and coming home to a toasty warm fire and a few beers… just the simple things really. Marc S I think you get to the point with Christmas where presents become largely unimportant, and its more a time for family to get together and have fun etc. But I guess if I'm going to choose anything particular that I know I would use, I would probably go for a new iMac pro with all the extras. LOL. Seriously though, I'm happy with the break, a few drinks and games. This is what Christmas is all about. Lost a couple of family members over the past 12 month, and unfortunately none of us live forever. Brings home the realisation that there is more to life than material items, as much as we all enjoy them. Where's My Computer? Jennifer I don't really celebrate Christmas traditionally in my house. Like almost everyone in my house has already gotten all of their Christmas gifts. I would probably want just a quiet night with a long hot bath, my favorite bath bomb and a glass of wine. She really does How I became a cliche mom that wants bath stuff for presents. I have no idea. I'd likely love to get Metro Exodus pre-order. I know my BF doesn't pre-order games anymore because of some of the new pre-order issues with games with un-dedicated developers but it's a game I am excited for and hope to have come February when it comes out. Rhett A week in Hawaii, no phone, no computer, feet in the sand and a beer in my hand! Is that too much to ask for Santa? I've been good. Jim I'd say world peace but I think a 2019 Chevy Corvette ZR1 would be easier! Mark Wade A couple good bottles of wine, or I'd also quite like a new iPad Pro. Not relevant but made me laugh Matt Like others here at Invision Community, I've reached the grand old age where material possessions aren't what I long for. I'm happy watching my two children open their gifts on Christmas morning and then share a meal with family. Or maybe a new iPad Pro because if Mark is getting one, I want one too. Yet again Charles and Lindy declined to comment, so in the spirit of Christmas generosity, I've written their answers for them. Charles I would like a butler because it is what I deserve. Lindy I would like a panic room like in that Jodie Foster movie. I don't think for a second I'm going to be attacked in my own home. I just need a place to hide from the kids now and again. I'll kit it out with fresh kombucha, artisanal popcorn and poetry books. I'll be happy for hours. So, that is what we want for Christmas. What about you? Have you been naughty or nice?
  21. The second edition of the Riders Music Festival has created waves ahead of its opening day on December 22 at the Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium in Delhi. As much as it is a celebration of the biking community in the country, it is also a carnival that brings in other elements, like music “With the ever-evolving biking community and the increasing fad of motorcycles every year in our country, we believe there should be something for everybody,” believes Nisha Narayanan, COO RED FM. “What's better than to bring together an amalgamation of biking, music, grub and more for that perfect concoction to make your weekend a memorable one. Riders Music Festival was a huge success in its inception year in 2017. This year we look forward to the IP becoming bigger, better, and louder. Let the bikes roar & the music play,” she adds. Here are a few of the big Indian performers that you can catch live at this extravaganza. 1. Mame Khan The manganiyar singer is known for his expertise in traditional Folk and Sufi music. He is a former India's Got Talent contestant and found instant success with his rendition of the song Chaudhary for MTV India's music show Coke Studio. 2. Lucky Ali A cult star of the 90s, Lucky Ali barely needs any introduction to the generation that grew up listening to his songs and idolising him in those uber cool music videos. For the ones who are not well acquainted with him, check out a few of his tracks and prepare yourself to fall in love with his soulful brand of music. 3. Nucleya One of the biggest Indian DJs and mixers of this decade, Udyan Sagar became a countrywide phenomenon with his kitsch, bass-heavy sound that was immediately lapped up by the masses. His USP is a very distinct and unique usage of Indian street sounds that has earned him a reputation of someone who is bridging the gap between indie and mainstream in a way that few others have. 4. Divine Born with the name Vivian Fernandes, Divine's rise from the streets of Mumbai to India's coolest rap sensation has been nothing short of a dream. But behind the realisation of this dream have been many years of hard work that yielded superhit numbers like Yeh Mera Bombay and Mere Gully Mei. 5. Bhuvan Bam One of our cover stars for the month of December, Bhuvan Bam started his stage career as a musician in small-time Delhi restaurants. It took a back seat when he started making videos for his Youtube channel BB Ki Vines, but his first love has resurfaced with tracks like Safar and Sang Hoon Tere. And he's surely as good at singing as he is at other things.

  23. Have you ever been on a journey without plugging your earphones in or turning your car stereo up to the maximum? Have you ever had a moment where your feet just start tapping to the rhythm of a song when you visited a local cafe, bar or restaurant? We all have! I am sure my questions will help you re-live those select experiences that left a resounding mark on your soul.

There are some songs that complement the thrill of the road. From Steppenwolfe's 'Born to be wild' to Roger McGuinn's 'Easy Rider' to Jim Morrison's 'Riders on the storm', every song identifies the adventurous attitude of non-conformist bikers. There are many Bollywood songs too which are centred around travel and biking. It's a fact that music can either make or break your mood and if done right, it leaves you with a thirst for the unchartered territory. When we talk about biking, it is not just adventure that brings bikers closer, it is also about catching just a fleeting glimpse of what is beyond the horizon. Every biker swears by the thrill of unraveling the unknown, a road that brings them together and the ecstasy of blood pumping through their veins. So how about a platform for them to come together, connect and share their unique moments on the road with one another? A live music festival for bike riders is what exactly is on offer to fulfil this demand. The amount of passion shown by bikers last year at the Riders Music Festival sealed the deal and this year we are back with a bang.

They take a part of this diversified culture with them, establishing unity and oneness amongst fellow aficionados. The biking community has also created awareness for various issues like drug abuse, organ donation, HIV, road safety, child abuse and much more through their motorbike rallies.

  24. You don't have to be a collector to recognize the unmistakable click of a Zippo lighter. The unique sound is not just soothing to many but is also a click that nearly 4 out of 5 adults will instantly recognize anywhere across the world. These aren't just tall claims but are facts that are supported on relevant grounds. Established way back in 1932, the Zippo windproof lighter easily found its way into the popular culture references and won many hearts with its unique design and unwavering durability. Yup, the biggest keyword that defines this as a collector's prized possession is the fact that despite the improvements to the flint wheel and evolving designs over the years, Zippo remains true to its famous lifetime guarantee – "It works, or we fix it free.™" Coming back to the click of the century, the Zippo click sound has recently been trademark joining the ranks of other unique sounds that you'll instantly connect with. So what really makes the click so unique? The crisp click of a Zippo lighter opening and closing is a trigger to numerous emotional responses. Approximately 70% of people stated that the sound instils positive emotional benefits. Sound is having an impact more than ever on people's moods evident in the global phenomenon of ASMR (Autonomous Sensory Meridian Response) content. This is characterised by a static-like, tingling sensation that occurs due to a relaxing response to stimuli. ASMR triggers can range from whispering voices to the heightened audio of everyday sounds- with each trigger affecting the listener on a very individual level. This image of the inner workings of the Zippo lighter breaks down its anatomy revealing the small things that make the big difference. Made up of 9 essential raw materials, this collector's item clicks each of the products into motion resulting in the crisp click sound and the subsequent flame. Filling and Lighting the Zippo The Zippo windproof lighter is filled by removing the inside unit from the lighter case (9). Turn the inside unit over and lift the felt pad (8) to reveal the packing material in the fuel chamber (3). Hint: Use an unfolded paper clip or similar tool if the pad is hard to lift. With the felt pad out of the way, the fuel chamber is ready to be filled with lighter fuel, slowly saturating the wick (6) and the packing material (7) inside the fuel container. Once reassembled, the lighter is ready to use. A simple downward flick of the flint wheel (1) strikes it against the flint held in place by the flint spring (5), creating hot sparks that ignite the lighter fuel coating the wick (6). When opening the lighter, the distinctive Zippo click is created by the cam (2). The wick continues to draw lighter fuel from the packing material (7) in the fuel tank, and sends a continuous flow of fuel up the wick to keep the flame lit. This unwavering fuel flow, along with the perforated chimney design, helps the flame stay alight even in wind – an integral feature of the Zippo lighter's design since it first debuted in 1932. Finally, when the lighter lid is closed, the flame is immediately extinguished as it becomes deprived of the oxygen it needs to burn. If you are an aspiring collector of this nearly-a-century old masterpiece, make sure that you check the markings and manufacture date (this marking began in 1958) at the bottom to decode the lighter's age.
