Teardown Reveals iPhone 12, 12 Pro Are Nearly Identical From The Inside And It’s Deja Vu

While Apple would like you to believe that the iPhone 12 and 12 Pro are different from each other, a teardown video shows that the two smartphones are nearly identical to each other. In fact, they are so similar, it’s quite hard to differentiate between the two.  © YouTube When we look closely, both devices have the same L-Shaped printed circuit board (PCB) with the only difference being the additional LiDAR connector on the iPhone 12 Pro. The iPhone 12 does not come with a LiDAR sensor and logically the connector is also missing from the PCB. What’s weird is that the PCB on both phones are so identical that there are plastic fillings for the missing LiDAR and telephoto sensors in the iPhone 12. 
The iPhone 12 and 12 Pro also have the same battery capacity i.e. 2815mAh, however it could have been possible for Apple to house a bigger battery for the iPhone 12, but instead it opted to use the same battery on both devices. Apple probably chose to use the same batteries in order to cut costs. This also means that both devices will more or less have the same battery life.  Most of the components used in both phones are the same which means these components could be interchangeable. This could also be a way for Apple to reduce repair costs for the iPhone, however one can never know if these components are interchangeable.  © Unsplash It’s been long suspected that the only difference between the two models happens to be only in the camera department and this teardown shows exactly that. What’s astonishing is that the two models have a huge price difference especially when there is only a difference in the camera and RAM capacity. Most of the components such as the Taptic Engine, the TrueDepth camera system, display and even Qualcomm's X55 modem chip are all in the same place. 
What do you think about the iPhone 12 and 12 Pro being nearly identical but having vastly different prices? Let us know in the comments if this changes your decision for which iPhone 12 to get.

5 Common Skincare Mistakes Men Make That Are Causing Blackheads & Excess Oil Secretion

When we think about getting ready for a special occasion or taking care of ourselves, skin care is mostly never on the list. 
This holds true for most people. Looking your best is a part of our daily lives but we mostly concentrate on grooming alone.  Most men forget that skincare is just as important as grooming.  No matter how amazing your beard and hair look, your skin should look just as good. Today, we will help you achieve that flawless, clear skin by telling you what not to do. All of us are guilty of making these skincare mistakes. However, the impact of these mistakes can be huge. Here’s how. What Are The Main Causes? Have you ever noticed that more men have enlarged pores and blackheads than women? Well, this is because men have thicker skin than women. This means that your blackheads, once rooted, tend to go deeper and thus are harder to get rid of.  The hormone DHT (Dehydrotestosterone) is another contributing factor. It stimulates the sebaceous glands to produce more sebum. This results in larger and more visible pores. Simply speaking, excess oil secretion and hard, undernourished skin are two of the main causes of blackheads.  Now that you know the main causes, let’s get on to the bad habits that may be aggravating your blackhead troubles. __ECOMLOOKS__1911__ __ECOMLOOKS__1912__ __ECOMLOOKS__1913__ __ECOMLOOKS__1914__ __ECOMLOOKS__1915__ Form A RoutineOn a concluding note, we would like to remind you that If your skin is prone to blackheads, you need to develop a solid skincare routine. Without a routine your blackheads will keep returning.  Explore More

5 Songs From The 2000s We Need To Revisit That Used To Be Our Favourite When They Released

Bollywood songs from the 2000s are some of the best songs that Hindi cinema has ever given us. These songs have made us feel alive and some of them have also been part of long drives and house parties. These songs will instantly remind you of the fabulous time back then and will make you want to go back in time. The hook steps of these songs have been etched in our hearts forever and we will never forget them. However, some of these songs were our favorites but now we have completely forgotten them. So, here is a list of 5 such Bollywood songs from the 2000s that we forgot about, which used to be our favorite when they had released.  Pappu Can’t Dance Sala  Almost all of us have enjoyed dancing to this song and, not only the song, the film also did great at the box office. The film starred Imran Khan and Genelia D’Souza in the lead roles and revolved around how two best friends fell in love with each other. 
Mitwa The song from the film Kabhi Alvida Na Kehna was a hit at that time and now that you have been reminded about this song, you’d definitely want to listen to it once. The film starred Shahrukh Khan, Rani Mukherji, Preity Zinta and Abhishek Bachchan in prominent roles. 
Ab To Forever The film starred Rani Mukherji and Saif Ali Khan in the lead roles and both of them looked stunning in the film. A lot of women got a similar haircut that Rani Mukherji donned in the film and also this song became one of the superhits of that time.
It’s The Time To Disco  If you don’t know the hook-step to this song, then you’re clearly missing out on some fun in your life. Most of us have given solo performances in front of the mirror on this song. The film Kal Ho Na Ho gave us some great songs but this one stood out and made it to the list of our favourites. 
Woh Ajnabee This song had extraordinarily catchy lyrics and if we listen to this song today, many of us will still know the lyrics. The song is from the film The Train starring Emran Hashmi, Geeta Basra and Sayali Bhagat in prominent roles.

The OnePlus 9 May Release Earlier Than Expected And Here’s What The Specs Could Be Like

It hasn’t even been a week but we’re already hearing about the OnePlus 9 and when it is expected to launch next year. Usually, OnePlus reserves the months April-May for the launch of their flagship smartphones, however it seems like this time around the company may move their plans ahead.  © MensXP/Akshay Bhalla Smartphone cycles don’t seem to stop and that was evident even during the COVID-19 pandemic amidst limited production and output from factories. However, that did not stop companies from launching their latest products including the recently announced iPhone 12. Now, a report from Android Central claims that an insider source tells them that the OnePlus 9 is expected to launch a month earlier than the company’s usual launch cycle. 
The OnePlus 9 is being planned for a March launch in 2021 according to Android Central’s report which is a month before OnePlus' usual launch date for their phones. OnePlus is not the only company looking to move up their launch schedule as last week reports suggested even Samsung is moving up its launch schedule for the next ‘Galaxy S’ smartphone.  © MensXP/Akshay Bhalla There’s no additional information about the OnePlus 9 as of now however we can make an educated guess about the upcoming phone. Much like every other OnePlus device, we can expect the OnePlus 9 to be powered by Qualcomm’s latest flagship chipset which could be the Snapdragon 875. The OnePlus 9 will also use the company’s new 65W Warp Charge feature since it has now launched on the OnePlus 8T and it will be a standard feature for future OnePlus smartphones. 
Similarly, the OnePlus 8T also comes with a 120Hz display just like the OnePlus 8 Pro and there’s no reason why it wouldn’t make a return on the OnePlus 9. There could be a chance that the smartphone may even come with a 144Hz display on the Pro model since we’ve already seen OnePlus’ competition i.e. ASUS and Xiaomi roll out smartphones with 144Hz refresh rate displays.  © MensXP/Akshay Bhalla It would be prudent to point out that most of the information above is still very early to be accurate and should be taken with a pinch of salt. In terms of specifications, we’ve speculated based on OnePlus’ past launch trends and weighed in what the competition is offering in order for the company to keep up with the industry.

It's Halloween time and the only type of movie anyone is allowed to watch this month is horror movies. Sorry, I don't make the rules. Every time a new horror movie comes out, we always get to hear how it's the 'scariest movie ever', and well, they rarely live up to the expectation.  © Warner Bro With every scary movie marketed that way, it was time for science to decide the scariest movie ever, once and for all, and we have the results. © Broadband Choices According to “Science of Scare Project", a study conducted by Broadband Choices, we have a definite list of science-approved scary movies and it's a little unexpected.
Basically, for this study, they took 50 people and hooked them up to a heart monitor. Then, they were made to watch 120 hours of the best horror movies out there. And then, everyone's heart rates were taken into account to declare the scariest of the scariest. © Broadband Choices Disclaimer - yes, 50 people is not a lot, and of course, the list is not accurate for the entire population, we get it. It's still a scientific study.
So, here are the top ten movies that made people's heart rate go up by a lot, starting from the scariest:  1. Sinister © Alliance Films The movie follows a has-been true-crime writer who moves his wife and kids into a house where a family had previously been murdered. 
Determined to solve the mystery of the murdered family to use as a basis of his next novel, he soon realizes there's a lot more going on in the haunted house. 2. Insidious © Blumhouse Productions Another haunted house story but in this, the parents realize that their comatose son is actually possessed by some evil entities.
3. The Conjuring © Warner Bros *clap clap* Yet another movie where white people move into a sinister-looking house in the middle of nowhere and then realize it's haunted. 
The Perron family starts going through increasingly terrifying events and then get help from paranormal investigators. 4. Hereditary © A24 After the death of the matriarch of the Graham family, the family starts to uncover the terrifying secrets of their ancestry as they get haunted by a mysterious presence.
5. Paranormal Activity © Blumhouse Productions A couple senses that they are being haunted by a supernatural presence in their home and set up a camera to uncover the truth and document it. 
The found-footage approach actually makes the movie seem more authentic, thus even more terrifying. 6. It Follows © Northern Lights Films Basically, an STD, but make it haunted. A teenage girl is followed by a supernatural entity after a sexual encounter and can only get rid of it after having sex with someone else and passing it on.
7. The Conjuring 2 © Warner Bros. The sequel continues with the Warrens, the paranormal investigators from the first movie, coming out of a sabbatical and jumping continent to help out a family in the UK. 
After the Warrens try to help the youngest daughter who's possessed, they end up becoming the new target of the malicious spirit. 8. The Babadook © Entertainment One A monster movie, The Babadook follows a single mother dealing with her son's paranoid fears of a monster only to realize they are surrounded by a sinister presence all around.
9. The Descent © Celador Films A group of women head to a cave to explore it but soon after descending, they find strange paintings and evidence of a previous expedition, soon realizing that they are not alone.
10. The Visit © Universal Pictures Another found-footage movie, it follows two teenaged siblings going to their estranged grandparents' house to spend a week with them as their mother goes off with her boyfriend. 
Can't say anything else without spoiling it, but it gets real creepy real quick. So, if you have seen all the movies mentioned above, well, congratulations! you're a true horror flick connoisseur.

Here Are 3 Things We Like The Most About Samsung Galaxy M51

The past couple of months have been overwhelming in terms of smartphone launches as none of the OEMs wanted to miss out on the festive shopping spree. With an influx of devices, it often gets difficult to pick and choose the ones that offer the most value for money. For Samsung, we think it was the newest entry into the M-Series, the Galaxy M51. Honestly, we didn't expect this gem of a phone to come knocking at our doors. This is one of those phones that has managed to stay with us ever since it came out. There are quite a few things we like about the Galaxy M51 but we'll be talking just the three of them here. Battery Life © MensXP/Karthik Iyer The Samsung Galaxy M51 is good at many things but the battery is where it brilliantly dominates the competition. The phone packs a generous 7,000 mAh battery. It is by far the largest battery we've seen on any mainstream smartphone.
Regardless of how busy the day has been for the phone, there's a good chance that you'll still end your day with enough charge left to play a few games or watch a movie or a TV show. We tried really hard to kill the battery in one day but we gave up before the phone did. The charging speed is also not too shabby considering the battery size. You get a 25W charger inside the box and it takes about 2 hours to top it up. We'd love to see a faster-charging solution for the successor more than anything else. Display © MensXP/Karthik Iyer The Galaxy M51 also sports a beautiful 6.7-inch Super AMOLED Plus Infinity-O panel. It's got a tall 20:9 aspect ratio with support for FullHD+ resolution. It's a typical Samsung AMOLED panel that we've come to cherish over the years. It's a joy to look at and we certain that you'll have a great time using it, be it for gaming, watching videos, etc.
It also has widevine L1 support to stream HD content on OTT platforms. There's also support for HDR, so those HDR-supported YouTube videos will look really good. It's a best in class Super AMOLED panel with great color reproduction.
Performance © MensXP/Karthik Iyer The Galaxy M51 is powered by the Snapdragon 730G this time instead of going for its in-house Exynos chipsets. It is backed by up to 8GB RAM and 128GB storage. The performance of the phone is super smooth across all the day-to-day tasks.
You won't encounter any lags while using the phone. Samsung's OneUI has also gotten better now and it's far from the sluggish UI were used to on older Samsung phones. You'll also have a great time gaming on this phone. The performance is solid and you won't have to worry about the battery too. The Final SayBesides the points we've mentioned above, there are plenty of other things we like about the Galaxy M51 and that's exactly why we keep coming back to it even after using so many devices that are coming out. It's a great phone and we think it's perfect for those who are looking to buy a phone under Rs 25,000.

Sharad Kelkar Seen Wearing The Chunkiest Pair Of Shoes We've Seen Until Now

Sharad Kelkar graduated to the film industry after being a part of the television industry for a long time.  Besides him impressing us in movies like Tanhaji: The Unsung Warrior and Bhoomi with his acting prowess, we also have to shed light on the fact that he is a celebrity with fashion-forward choices.  He doesn't make a lot of appearances, but when he is papped sometimes our eyes instantly go to his outfits.

5 Things About ‘Fast & Furious’ Films That'll Make Every Race Fan Want To Scratch Their Brains Out

The Fast And The Furious franchise began with a basic concept of drag racing combined with highway heists and an undercover cop joining their gang as a street racer.  The first couple of films were decent, if not great. Tokyo Drift was refreshing and managed to be the best film of the franchise (in my opinion) without the help of a massive actor roster but subsequently, things came crashing down to the point at which cars are parachuting on a highway and planes are running on endless runways. This list isn’t about the such stupid incidents that the scripwriters included in the film in the name of creativity. This list is about the stupid things they showed in the fancy cars that made every race fan want to bleach their eyes and stratch their brains out. The Extra Gear Shift So, can we already talk about how, no matter how fast the car is going, Vin Diesel is always able to shift one gear up when it matters the most?  Is he necessarily driving on one gear lower throughout the race, in which case completely messing up his fuel consumption and risking his engine to overheat too quickly? I get that it could be the case in a quarter-mile race but not when drifting through a glacier, being chased by a freaking submarine, right? NOS Leading To Time Warp If you watch the first two films of the franchise, as soon as the racer pushes ‘the red button’ to initiate a Nitrous oxide boost, they’d show it as if the car is ready to travel faster than the speed of light and convert into a time travelling machine.  Sure, the boost can make the car go faster but not in a way that’d give Marty McFly and Doc from Back To The Future a run for their money. How Long A ‘Quarter-Mile’ Race Lasts A quarter-mile is just a little more than 400 metres. With supercars that go from 0-100mph in a couple of seconds that are loaded with ‘time-traveling’ NOS, how does it take them 30 seconds or more to complete a short race on a straight road? Considering the average time for a real drag race is somewhere between 4-9 seconds, the races in the Fast & Furious franchise are hilariously long. The Glamourous Pre-Race Atmosphere The first movie of the series came in 2001 and the “street-car racing” environment showed women in ultra small skirts talking around expensive rides and “bending down” to check the fancy engines for some reason. Now this could be the avid YouTube viewer in me speaking but none of the legitimate street-racing videos that I have seen online have such overglamourised people next to the cars. Normally, there are two cars positioned side-by-side, they bet a certain amount on the race and then… race! Of course there are a bunch of enthusiasts crowding the starting line but that’s about it. The Physics This doesn’t just upset the race fans but humanity in general. Fast and the Furious cars do not obey the laws of physics one bit. Be it jumping from a platform and onto a yacht or five cars trying to hold down one car and eventually flipping high in the air and crashing into one another just because Vin Diesel’s car had more horsepower than that rest of them combined. Science? What science, eh?

IPL 2020: 5 Players Nobody Expected Would Rise As Match-Winners This Season

The Indian Premier League (IPL) has witnessed numerous players carving their own niche on the back of spectacular performances over the years. Their success didn't just earn them plaudits, but it also garnered high expectations from pundits and fans alike. Such has been their consistency that it's almost criminal to expect them to deliver the goods every time they take the field. Take AB de Villiers for instance. The South African has been one of the most influential stars in the tournament over the years. Whether he's in form or not, the target is competitive or impossible to achieve, the sight of ABD walking out on the field wielding the willow always gets us on the edge of our seats amid expectations of total carnage. Similarly, the thirteenth edition of the IPL, too, had cricket fans expecting the usual suspects to deliver big time. While many expected stars have surely delivered, the ongoing season has become more of a story of those unexpected match-winners who have not only aided their respective teams in crunch situations but also surprised everyone with their unmatched skills. Marcus Stoinis © Twitter/@IPL Arguably the most popular name on the list, Marcus Stoinis is well known for his all-round abilities on the international circuit. But, his poor stint with Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) saw him finding new employers in Delhi Capitals (DC) this season. Owing to ordinary performances in RCB colours, Stoinis was not really expected to do well this season. But, the Aussie, contrary to popular perception, has been clinical for Delhi.
In the very first game for Delhi, Stoinis emerged as the match-winner for his side in the 'Super Over' thriller against Kings XI Punjab (KXIP). The 31-year-old scored a brilliant 21-ball 53 and then impressed everyone with his bowling figures of 2-29 to eventually bag the 'Man of the Match' award. Rahul Tewatia © Twitter/@IPL In a team that boasts of proven stars like Steve Smith, Jos Buttler and Ben Stokes, no one could have possibly imagined that Rahul Tewatia would have such an influential season for his team. The Rajasthan allrounder had already given a glimpse of his capabilities during a three-wicket spell against Chennai Super Kings (CSK) early in the tournament. But, it was the game against Punjab that really showed his class.
Chasing a total of 223 runs, the likes of Samson (85) and Steve Smith (50) surely laid the foundation of their run-chase but it was Tewatia's late fireworks that sealed the deal for Rajasthan. The left-hander's herculean batting effort of 31-ball 53, including 7 sixes, against all odds allowed Rajasthan to pull off the highest successful run-chase in IPL history and emerged as the unlikeliest of heroes this season. Axar Patel © Twitter/@IPL Dropped from the team after playing just two matches, Axar Patel got a second wind this season after Amit Mishra's unexpected injury. Since then, the Delhi allrounder has not only been impressive with both bat and ball, but he has become a key contributor in the rampant run of his team this season.
In nine matches, Axar has taken eight wickets and has been explosive with the willow at the end of the innings. His power-hitting was in full display during Delhi's five-wicket win over Chennai. Shikhar Dhawan's unbeaten 101 surely played a key role in Delhi's triumph, but there is no doubt that if it wasn't for Axar's 5-ball 21, which included three sixes, the Capitals wouldn't have pulled it off. Rahul Tripathi  © Twitter/@IPL At a time when Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) were struggling with Sunil Narine's form, Rahul Tripathi grabbed the opportunity with both hands and made his position at the top his own. Tasked with the responsibility of getting KKR off to a flyer, Tripathi smoked a match-winning 81 against Chennai on a day when others failed to step up.
The 29-year-old smashed eight fours and three sixes in an innings that came at a strike-rate over 158. While none of the established Kolkata stars couldn't score past 17, Rahul's 81 ensured his team reached a competitive total of 167 runs. His batting effort proved decisive as Chennai eventually fell short of the target, losing the game by 10 runs. And, Rahul bagged a well-deserved 'Man of the Match' award. T Natarajan © Twitter/@IPL In the glitz and glamour of IPL where international stars often hog the limelight, no one would have thought T Natarajan, a left-arm seamer from Salem in Tamil Nadu, would emerge as Sunrisers Hyderabad's yorker specialist. During their 15-run win over Delhi, Hyderabad had a few key contributors including the likes of Jonny Bairstow (53) and Rashid Khan (3-14). Natarajan, too, had his role to play with figures of 1-24.
While his figures might not seem extraordinary, it shouldn't take anything away from the outstanding overs (14th and 18th) he bowled during Delhi's run-chase. The left-arm seamer bowled as many as 10 toe-crushing yorkers during the match which played a key role in Hyderabad's win. Though Rashid bagged the 'Man of the Match' award, it was Natarajan who ran away with plaudits from pundits and fans alike.

What We Need To Remember About The Power Of Letting Go When Someone Doesn’t Love Us Back

You probably are thinking that it is obviously easier said than it’s done. Absolutely not denying that fact, and neither lacing it with any fancy words that will wrap this painful thought in embroidered words is going to help. When you love someone, and if you’re really lucky, they decide to love you back and stay in your life. However, sometimes letting go of a one-sided, toxic or even a dead relationship is a bigger blessing than anyone of us can fathom. If you’re struggling through it, or know anyone who might need this, here are some personal thoughts on what I believe we need to remind ourselves when we have decided to let go, but we continue to struggle.
© pexels Don’t Take Everything PersonallyOkay, before you say ‘yeah right’ and roll your eyes, hold on. Allow me to explain and that even though it is happening to you, it is not meant to be personal to you. If you think about it, when you have truly given it your all, worked your way up for someone, made your share of compromises and yet you continue to receive a half-baked version of their love, please analyse the basic fact that it is possible that maybe you are not even the problem. Most times, what others do and how they perceive a relationship has got less to do with us and more to do with their own share of trauma, insecurities, validation issues and unresolved emotions. © UTV motion pictures I have seen some couples struggle for years to sort things out when both of them are unable to fulfil their set of expectations, and I have also seen some people work things out with minimum arguments or grudges harboured against each other.
Let Go Of The ‘Confusion’ That Was Not Caused By YouOftentimes than not, in most relationships that have run their course, and one partner is sadly moving on because ‘nothing was happening’, or the wheels of their relationship were jammed, you will notice that it is usually this weird vibe of confusion that surrounds the existing love. Sometimes, a partner is unsure and confused about their own goals, their own vision in life and the kind of future they see for themselves. That cocktail of emotions makes it difficult for them to put you in line with any future plan so conveniently, it is termed as ‘confusion’ and the onus of the irritation is often put on the partner who is clueless about the other person’s personal struggle. © UTV Please remind yourself that if you are clear about your plans, if your commitment lacks no effort, if their love is compromised because they probably feel guilty sometimes after blaming you for the pressure you put, then it's probably best to not borrow this confusion and blur your own vision. In case you fall in that trap, a lack of self-confidence, lack of worth, and every negative emotion will begin piling up which will make the vibe more toxic. Remember, you were clear with what you want, they were confused.
Face The Truth & Start HealingThere is no other way of saying it except swallowing the bitter pill. You loved someone truly and they could not love you back or maybe they once did, and can no longer love you the way you want. Find strength in the fact that you are letting go of something which was not meant for you in the first place and when you open your heart, you will be allowing it to make space for someone who will love you for what you are. The right people come with no manuals, or confusions that make them force you to swim in the dark water of their unresolved emotions. Please remember that this is not a rejection of your emotions, this is you picking up your own pieces and mending your heart for your own sake. © RatPac-Dune Entertainment Put together the love you put in someone and give that love to yourself. When you love yourself and make yourself a priority, the world begins to fall in love with you. We often bend our rules and happily compromise for being accepted by someone else but what about what we want? Sure, moving on will be tough, but staying in a relationship that is not moving forward itself is tougher. You are more than the ‘maybe’, the ‘not yet’ and the ‘I don’t know’ that is breathed by someone who is unsure of what they need in their life. You will heal when you feel the right love.

10 Pictures Of The Guy-Next-Door Lucas Bravo That Prove He Has Killer Fashion Sense IRL Too

If you have already binge watched the most riveting show on Netflix, Emily In Paris, you already know what we are about to deep dive into. Lucas Bravo, a 32-year-old French actor, has made everyone go weak in the knees, with his endearing personality on the show. For the less acquainted, Bravo is a charming chef, who is the face behind Gabriel and he happens to be a neighbour in the series who is Emily's love interest (we'll stop with the spoilers now). While we are already captivated by his dazzling personality on the show, we also couldn't miss out on his sartorial aesthetics. A quick look at Bravo's Instagram profile and you would be convinced that the man is super fashionable in real life too. Let these pictures speak for themselves!  1. Never underestimate the power of a clean-shaven face and a simple, basic outfit. Also, boots around the neck? That's a stylish move! © Instagram/Jetaimelucasbravo 2. Eat your fruits while looking fashionable ft. Lucas in a denim jacket layered over a colourful striped T-shirt. Bravos, that's bravo!
© Instagram/Jetaimelucasbravo 3. Only Lucas can make cuffed pants look so darn good and work it with a white T-shirt and a camouflaged shirt over it? Brownie points for you man!
© Instagram/Bravolucas 4. Okay, he is totally killing it here with his warm, winter outfit and slick back hair.
© Instagram/Bravolucas 5. While denim on denim can be a tricky trend, here's Lucas proving that it's a child's play.
© Instagram/Bravolicas 6. If you thought a bomber jacket or a trench coat, pairs well only with denim, here's Lucas showing how to flaunt the winter silhouettes, with grey tapered pants.
© Instagram/Bravolucas © Instagram/Bravolucas 7. The fact that he looks good with long hair or short hair, beard or clean-shaven face with perfect style aesthetics is truly questionable.

Scientists Have Discovered New Organs In The Human Skull & We Don't Know What's Happening Anymore

We've heard a lot of weird and unexpected things happen in 2020. Now, we just learned about the discovery of new organs in the human skull. Yes, a team of doctors from the Netherlands stumbled upon a set of previously undiscovered organs. The doctors were said to be studying high-resolution brain scans when they found it. They say the organ was hiding inside the base of the human skull, which they say is the fourth pair of salivary glands. The glands are tucked away up where the top of the throat meets the nasal cavity. This hasn't been officially confirmed yet, but it'll be a huge discovery that would mark the first pair of new salivary glands discovered in about 300 years. This particular research is being led by the doctors at the Netherlands Cancer Institute and it looks like they're working with fairly limited data right now. It could really change the way we study the salivary glands. The other three salivary glands are right beneath our skin but this new one, which the doctors claim to have found, is tucked underneath. So they may go unnoticed unless someone's specifically looking for them. This also possibly explains why the potentially damaged glands went undiscovered all this time. © Reuters It looks like the gland is not very accessible inside the skull. Study author Dr. Wouter Vougel, a radiation oncologist at the Netherlands Cancer Center, said, "The location is not very accessible, and you need very sensitive imaging to detect it.”

6 Super Stylish Actors We Got From TV Shows Of The 2000s Who’re Classier Than Most Stars Today

As cringey as some of their shows might be, we cannot ignore the fact that the Indian television industry has given us some really talented and capable actors.   Some of these actors went on to have illustrious careers in movies and had some of the most iconic films under their belt. © Twitter/RK1610IsMe Even fashion and style-wise, we have had some great actors from the television industry. 
We take a look at 6 such actors from the 2000s, who delighted us with their performances, and style: 1. Rajeev Khandelwal © Twitter/RK1610IsMe Rajeev Khandelwal had a number of great television shows, all of whom were massively popular. Furthermore, he had a charm that most people found endearing. 
That, combined with his sense of style and a great ability to create some tasteful ensembles, ensured that he has a massive fan following. 2. Ronit Roy © IMDb Now, technically speaking, Ronit Roy isn’t exactly from the 2000s television industry, he had a Bollywood career much before that. 
However, it was the original Kasautii Zindagi Kay, that sort of revived his career and cemented his popularity among the masses. And can we just say, that Mr Bajaj, the original one, was one of the most stylish characters on Indian television for a considerable period of time? 3. Sidharth Shukla © Twitter/sidharth_shukla Sidharth was already a popular name before he made his television debut in 2008. However, the wonders that television did for his career is just incredible. 
Almost overnight, he became a household name, thanks to some really powerful and nuanced characters he played. Of course, his sheepish charm, and a very relatable and functional sense of style, also helped. 4. Cezanne Khan © Balaji Telefilms The main lead of Kasautii Zindagi Kay, Cezanne Khan, was all people could talk about when the show was popular. Men and women alike would follow him and keep track of his activities like crazy. 
For a show that was from the early 2000s, it was actually very fashionable and contemporary. 5. Rahil Azam © IMDb Remember Hatim, the fantasy show? The guy, Rahil Azam, who played the titular role, was pretty popular back in the day. 
Like most other people on the list, he started out as a model and was seen in a number of music videos and TV commercials, which should tell you all about his ability to dress with style.  Once he made his television debut, he became immensely popular among adults and kids alike. 6. Sushant Singh Rajput © Balaji Telefilms Finally, there’s Sushant Singh Rajput. He always had an immaculate sense of style, even during his days as an actor in television soaps. 
Of course, over the years, his sense of style and fashion evolved immensely, and he gave us a number of tasteful and really well put together outfits.  During his time at Pavitra Rishta, he had a very relatable, and functional sense of style, which resonated with a lot of people. Furthermore, he always had this charm, which people found very endearing.

Apple Watch Series 6 Review: No Smartwatch Even Comes Close To The King Of Wearables

Apple recently launched its latest smartwatch in India and if you aren’t familiar with its predecessors, it is the best wearable ever created. While the Indian market has been flooded with fitness trackers and smartwatches, none of them can even match up to Apple’s offering. The Apple Watch Series 6 is probably the only smartwatch worth getting if you are an iPhone user or even worth switching to the Apple ecosystem for it. The Apple Watch Series 6 is a small upgrade from its predecessor, however it doesn’t mean improvements haven’t been made under the hood. It’s a little weird reviewing this product especially since it’s almost identical to the Apple Watch Series 5 but it does come with its nifty features with watchOS 7. Here’s what we think about the Apple Watch Series 6: Design The Apple Watch Series 6’s design is well the same as before. It looks and feels like an Apple Watch that comes in three materials i.e. aluminium, polished stainless steel and brushed titanium. Our favourite is the Blue aluminium model which we’ve been using as our review unit for the period. Finally, Apple has given us some bright interesting colours for its accessories and the blue variant looks phenomenal.  © MensXP_Akshay Bhalla The smartwatch has the same always-on display meaning you won’t have to keep twisting your wrist to check the time or notifications. It’s best when you are working out or driving as it’s less distracting and requires one less action. What’s great is that the Apple Watch Series 6’s battery lasts about the same time as its predecessor even with features like Blood Oxygen readings happening in the background. 
© MensXP_Akshay Bhalla The Series 6 comes in two sizes and if you have a large wrist like mine, I would recommend the 44mm variant. If you’ve got slimmer wrists, the larger model is going to look quite awkward on your wrists but thankfully you can get a 40mm version as well. You can either get an LTE variant if you need to make a lot of calls on the go or simply the GPS version if you just need it for notifications and running.
While most of the Apple Watch’s design remains the same, Apple did introduce new Solo Loop bands that we didn’t get the opportunity to check out. Having said that, the Series 6 does come with a silicone strap which also requires you to give Apple the exact measurement of your wrist. To be honest, it’s worth it as you can then simply slide in your wrist into the Apple Watch or slide your wrist out making it far easier to use. Think of it like any ordinary wrist accessory that you may have worn in the past but instead this thing has a smartwatch on it as well.  © MensXP_Akshay Bhalla The right side of the Apple Watch has the digital crown which you use to navigate and select apps on the Apple Watch. It doubles up as a sensor for the ECG feature as well. The bottom of the smartwatch houses most of the sensors that include the heart-rate monitor, and infrared LEDs for SPO2 readings. 
If you like to hike or go climbing, there is also a dedicated watch face complication that uses the barometric altimeter and GPS to track your elevation in real-time. This means you can track in real-time how many flights of stairs you’ve climbed or how high you’ve hiked up on a hill.  Performance The Apple Watch Series 6 comes with the new S6 dual-core chipset based on the A13 Bionic SoC. The smartwatch feels faster than the Apple Watch Series 5 and Apple claims it to be around 20 percent at that. To be honest, the Series 5 was already quite fast but it was surprising to see Apple beat itself at its own game this year.  The Series 6 runs smoothly when navigating or opening apps - a major complaint I’ve had with every other smartwatch. This is what sets any Apple Watch apart from Google Wear devices or even other fitness trackers. If you are going to move from a Fitbit or a Galaxy smartwatch, you will notice a whole new world right away. There’s isn’t lag whenever I get a notification on my phone and the smartwatch, it rings at the same time as I get a call on my phone and it is the best performing fitness wearable device right now. None of these things is done well by any of its competitors which is why Apple Watch is still the king of wearables in our opinion.  In our testing, the Series 6 would last around 15-16 hours on a single charge with always-on display, notifications, phone calls and blood oxygen readings being taken in the background. While its competitor's devices can last up to days, none of them perform as well as the Apple Watch. What good is a smartwatch that can last days but can’t do anything well? However, in the case of the Apple Watch, I don’t mind it not lasting an entire day because it does everything it is supposed to do well. It works throughout the day and only requires charging when you are about to go to bed. FeaturesWe aren’t going to talk about all the previous features on the Apple Watch Series 6 as they work just as well on the Series 5 and you can read all about it in our review here. To keep it short, it manages all the health tracking metrics well and accurately including heart rate tracking, ECG, breathing and exercise tracking. The only thing you need to know is that Series 6 can do everything faster and more accurately than the Series 5. However, we will talk about the major new features i.e. Blood Oxygen and Sleep tracking that is exclusive to Series 6.  © MensXP_Akshay Bhalla The SPO2 reading feature on the Apple Watch works in two ways. You can either fire up the application manually or check on your levels from the health app since the Series 6 checks for SPO2 levels automatically in the background at all times. In terms of accuracy, we used a Pulse Oximeter and compared the results with the Apple Watch. In almost every case, the Apple Watch was only 1-2% off in accuracy when compared with the readings taken by the pulse oximeter machine. 
© MensXP_Akshay Bhalla The process for tracking SPO2 is fairly simple as you just need to fire up the app and rest your wrist. 15 seconds later, the watch will display your readings with a percentage. If you are curious, blood levels anywhere between 95% -100% are normal and anything lower means you should check in with your local doctor. Having said that, while the feature works well, there were times we faced problems as we would get a message saying "measurement was unsuccessful” even though we were resting our wrist as indicated. Maybe an update in the future might fix this problem but for now, you need to remain extremely still to get accurate readings.
© MensXP_Akshay Bhalla The second feature introduced with Series 6 and watchOS 7 is the ability to track your sleep. It’s been a long-requested feature and Apple finally made it happen. It’s quite simple to use and you simply need to set your bedtime in the Health app or the Watch itself. The Apple Watch will automatically go into sleep mode. When you wake up, the Apple Watch will tell you the number of hours you slept and your heart rate throughout the night. Having said that, we would have loved to see the Apple Watch giving us more details about our sleeping patterns such as deep or light sleep and REM. 
The third feature that has been added is Series 6’s ability to detect if you are washing your hands. It’s probably the most relevant feature to add on the smartwatch since the COVID-19 pandemic. WatchOS 7’s new hand-washing detection gets triggered automatically when the smartwatch’s microphone picks up the sound of running water and a soap dispenser. The mode will start right away and lasts for 20 seconds. The Apple Watch will notify you when the timer is up indicating that it is safe for you to be done with washing your hands. While it may seem quite pointless to have this feature on the smartwatch but you will be surprised to know how people don’t take washing hands seriously. It may not be a big deal, but this feature was necessary for people who want to stay safe during this pandemic.  The Final SayThere’s no denying the Apple Watch is the best smartwatch on the planet and the Series 6 takes it a bit further. With new valuable features, faster performance and new customisation options, the Apple Watch Series 6 is by far the king of smartwatches and fitness trackers as far as we are concerned. Sure, we would have loved it to look a bit different and have longer battery life, but for an average user, it doesn’t get better than this in 2020.

5 Bollywood Actors Who Would Be Perfect For The Role Of Amit Shah If A Biopic Was Made On Him

The Union Minister of India, Amit Shah, turns 56 today and he is one of the indispensable leaders that BJP has. He is also currently serving as the National President of the Bharatiya Janata Party. He has played an important role in the BJP and is also addressed as the modern Chanakya. From joining the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) at a young age of 14 to being appointed as the Union Home Minister of the country under Prime Minister Narendra Modi's rule, Amit Shah has seen a meteoric rise in his political career.  View this post on InstagramA post shared by (@amitshahofficial) Born on October 22, 1964, Amit Shah's father Anilchandra Shah used to run a business dealing in PVC pipes. Amit Shah completed his schooling in Mehsana and pursued his graduation in biochemistry from CU Shah Science College in Ahmedabad. For a brief period of time, he handled his father’s business and then worked as a stock broker in Ahmedabad. It was early in life that he found his way into politics and after joining RSS, he soon became a member of the Akhil Bharatiya Vidyarthi Parishad (ABVP), the student wing of the RSS. It was in 1982, he met Narendra Modi for the first time. The two came together and things were to change for good.  View this post on InstagramA post shared by (@amitshahofficial) When Narendra Modi was first appointed the Chief Minister of Gujarat in 2001, Amit Shah also gained popularity. In July 2014, he was appointed as the BJP's national president and he was appreciated for his tactics which changed the wave for BJP’s political ways. He moved the bill to scrap Article 370 in Jammu and Kashmir and also introduced Citizenship Amendment. The two always come together when it comes to taking powerful decisions in the political arena.  View this post on InstagramA post shared by (@amitshahofficial) Today, Amit Shah is celebrating his 56th birthday and we wonder if there were a biopic on the modern Chanakya, who could possibly play him. And we think these five Bollywood actors will be perfect for the role of the politician. 1. Paresh Rawal View this post on InstagramA post shared by (@pareshrawal1955) Widely respected for his versatility, he has impressed us with some very powerful performances. We feel he can be perfect for the role of Amit Shah as we have seen him nail the Gujarati accent in the past too and his acting skills need no introduction. 2. Pankaj Tripathi  View this post on InstagramA post shared by (@pankajtripathi) From playing Kaleen Bhaiya to a Guru in Sacred Games, Pankaj Tripathi is a man who can pull off any character with ease. He could also portray Amit Shah as he can add meaning to any character he plays on the big screen. 3. Saurabh Shukla  View this post on InstagramA post shared by (@saurabhshuklafilms) When a biopic on Prime Minister Narendra Modi was announced, people wanted Saurabh Shukla to play the role of Amit Shah because he looks a bit like Amit Shah, and with his power-packed performance, he can take the role to another level. 4. Boman Irani  View this post on InstagramA post shared by (@boman_irani) From Dr. Asthana from Munnabhai MBBS to Virus in 3 Idiots and a politician in Bhoothnath Returns, Boman Irani has always been appreciated for experimenting with his characters. He can surely play the role of Amit Shah and nail it to perfection. 5. Manoj Joshi  View this post on InstagramA post shared by (@actormanojjoshi) Manoj Joshi has already played the role of Amit Shah in the Narendra Modi biopic but he was underutilized in the movie as not many scenes focused on how Amit Shah changed the image of BJP and Narendra Modi. Considering how brilliant an actor Joshi is, he can surely ace the role. Who do you think is perfect for playing Amit Shah from our list? Have any other names in mind? Let us know in the comments below.

7 Simple & Useful Hacks To Turn Down The Madness Of Frizzy Hair

Frizzy hair is quite taxing as the innate nature and the tendency of the hair is dry and dehydrated. The outer layer of the hair, the cuticle, lifts up and it lets the moisture pass through it and makes hair strands swell up.  But, thankfully, you don't have to live with frizz forever. Once you have figured that your hair is too dry, you can try out these effective hacks that will help control the frizz: 1. Say No To Combs © iStock Combing is one of the most dreadful things for frizzy hair. When you run a comb through your hair, it will be more unkempt than ever. 
Instead of fluffing your hair up, use a wide-toothed comb. If that doesn't work for you, you can run your fingers as well. Try this hack as it will keep frizz under control. 2. Wash Your Hair With Lukewarm Water © iStock When you use hot, styling tools, it can damage your hair follicles. The same way, even cold water or extremely hot water can turn your follicles dry. 
Instead, stick to lukewarm water. You'll find the benefit of fighting the frizziness in no time with this hack. 3. Cut Down The Shampoo Frequency © iStock Frizzy hair can be a hassle, especially when you use chemically filled shampoos on your hair. These shampoos take away your hair's endogenous oil from the scalp and in turn, give dry hair texture. 
To combat it, invest in a paraben and sulfate-free shampoo, followed by a hydrating conditioner. Shampoo your hair three times a week.  If you still want to continue the good old fashion of washing the hair daily, skip the shampoo and only use a dab of conditioner on your hair and then rinse it off. 4. A Conditioner Is Gold For Your Hair © iStock No matter what you do, you can't possibly escape the goodness of a conditioner, when you are dealing with frizzy hair. 
In fact, it's a good idea to use a leave-in conditioner for your hair daily, for at least half-hour, since your hair demands hydration and this is the best way out.  Ensure it's not filled with silicones or sulfates and we promise you, your hair will thank you for it. 5. Change Your Pillowcases  © iStock Frizzy hair can't deal with friction, which is why everything that hinders with this hair texture, should be completely avoided. 
If the surface of your bed is not suitable for your hair, it will only lead to more frizziness. Trade your cotton pillowcases with silk or satin ones, to keep your hair away from reacting with abrasive surfaces. 6. Do Deep Conditioning © iStock It looks like a big deal, but it's just one more extra step in your shower caddy. Deep conditioning or using a hair mask is a treatment that you can do at home once a week. 
Since these methods penetrate deep into the skin, with natural ingredients, you can typically keep them on longer than your everyday conditioner and reap its benefits. 7. Say No To Heat © iStock Drying your hair using a blow-dryer every day will only dry up your hair even more. Your scalp will turn weaker and result in breakage. 
Instead, opt for air-drying and when you are in rush, you can always stick with a diffuser, which is less aggressive on the hair.
