Anushka Sharma and Varun Dhawan's 'Sui Dhaaga' trailer dropped yesterday and so did our jaws after we saw how brilliant it was. From Varun and Anushka's crackling chemistry to highlighting a small town couple's struggle to chase their dreams, the trailer has all the ingredients for a blockbuster.  

Sui Dhaaga trailerYRF

On one hand, where half the world was busy applauding Anushka, Varun and the director of 'Dum Laga Ke Haisha' for giving us a movie like 'Sui Dhaaga - Made In India', Twitter on the other hand was busy doing what it does best - churn out hilarious memes out of anything and everything. And this movie wasn't spared either. Just like the trailer, the memes too are pure gold.

'Sui Dhaaga' is the story of a simple guy named Mauji (a tailor) who does odd jobs and gets humiliated every day by his employer. His wife Mamta (an embroider) suggests he does something of his own and that's when the duo begins their struggle to achieve their dreams and come up with their own Sui Dhaaga, which is 'Mad In India'.   

In case you missed the trailer, you can watch it here.

'Tu jaanta hai ki mera baap kaun hai' and 'baap pe mat jaa' – the two lines have been spoken so much for years, that they've honestly become a joke now. Every person in Delhi is associated with these lines and it's quite hilarious.

But, there's another 'baap'-related line to join the ones above – 'tere baap ki sadak hai kya?' and the Ministry of Road Transport and Highways is making the most of it.

There's A New Traffic Cop In Town & He Looks Like Akshay Kumar

We all know how passionate Akshay Kumar is about social causes and has always tried his best to do his part in bringing about a change, both with his movies and in real-life. 

The universally loved actor was the obvious and perfect choice to convey the message of road safety to the masses and he did it brilliantly.

Better late than never. Follow traffic rules for your own and others safety, kyunki road kisi ke baap ki nahi hai. #SadakSurakshaJeevanRaksha pic.twitter.com/N8mh675BRv

— Akshay Kumar (@akshaykumar) August 14, 2018

He has posted three small videos which work as PSAs and is using humour to warn people who believe 'yeh unke baap ka road hai'.

It is always better to be safe than sorry. Follow traffic rules for your own and others safety kyunki road kisi ke baap ki nahi hai. #SadakSurakshaJeevanRaksha pic.twitter.com/tGILVR1cGR

— Akshay Kumar (@akshaykumar) August 14, 2018

As the brand ambassador for the Government of India's road safety campaign, he donned a traffic cop uniform and targeted people's behaviour on the road in the three one-minute videos.

Follow traffic rules for your own and others safety kyunki road kisi ke baap ki nahi hai. #SadakSurakshaJeevanRaksha pic.twitter.com/XhuPsm4Uij

— Akshay Kumar (@akshaykumar) August 14, 2018

Apparently, he didn't waste any time to join the road safety campaign when he got to know the “shocking facts and figures related to road accidents which can be prevented.” 

Well, that's true, though. I mean traffic rules are there for a reason. If you think you won't get caught and think you're an exception, you're just risking becoming the rule yourself.

A casual encounter with India transformed into a longlasting love affair for Gabriella Demetriades, who never imagined she would come to call the subcontinent her second home in the near future, since her first visit to the country in 2009. 

A South African model, she now has another title added to her crown, that of a designer and a successful entrepreneur whose designs have been sported by some of the leading names in the fashion and film industry.

A beauty to behold, with sculpted features and green eyes gorgeous enough to leave you spellbound, she wears many hats, steals as many hearts and rocks at everything she decides to put her mind to.

When It All Began

Having been to India once before, Demetriades found herself back in the hustling 'n' bustling country in 2011 for a modelling contract that spanned over three months. However, we must tell you and perhaps also refresh your memory as to where else you might have spotted this beauty before. 

She first came into the limelight when she auditioned for Miss IPL Bollywood in 2009. She also happens to be one of the contenders for FHM magazine's '100 Sexiest Women In The World'. Having been the face of Deccan Chargers as well as also having been a Miss IPL Bollywood representative, she caught the eyes of spectators who then chose her to represent Kolkata Knight Riders. Thus began her ride to glory.

Not All That's Rosy, Is Pretty

Like every big name in the making, Demetriades had her share of hiccups and the most memorable one has to be when she made national news back in 2010. 

She found herself amidst a tiff between businessman Lalit Modi and Congress leader Shashi Tharoor over certain disagreements involving the model's visa, which made Gabriella find her way to the headlines. 

The episode left her parents worried but the former model claims that she didn't feel scandalised even for a moment. Whatever the actual cause, we presume it did some good to her career in terms of publicity and recognition.

The High Life

Cut to 2016 when the model donned the hat of a designer and launched her own clothing label 'DEME'. With some of the prominent industry bigwigs attending her store launch in Bandra, Mumbai her entrepreneurial journey got a kickass start. Ever since a number of celebrities and leading models have stepped out in her designs that are a mix of edgy and soft, flowy silhouettes which complement any and every woman of style out there.

Stealing Hearts And Bringing Up The Temperature

Gabriella Demetriades, The Model-Turned-Designer Who Has Stoked Public Interest In Indian Men© Facebook

Now, while she has turned into a businesswoman for the past two years, she hasn't ignored her talents as a gorgeous model and is often seen updating her Instagram account with photographs from various shoots and outings. 

Her feed screams “sexy” and “oomph” and one can always spot a great number of men (and women) fawning over her beauty and charm.

With every post, she sends her followers into a tizzy and the paparazzi into a shutter frenzy, because no matter the time or occasion, every appearance she makes turns up the heat by a few degrees. People have and continue to take notice of this beauty, who now calls this country her home and plans to continue to explore, expand and do what she is best at.

Take a look at a few of her posts on Instagram to be sure of our claims and add to your list of divas to 'Follow' on insta.

From a Paris man climbing up 5 floors with bare hands to save a child dangling from a balcony to to an NDRF cop crossing a sinking bridge in Kerala with a child in his arms; heroes can be found in every corner of the world. In fact, we can never thank them enough for risking their lives to rescue people. 

Firefighter In London Told To 'F**k Off' By Parrot He Was Trying To Rescue© Malayala Manorama

Throughout our lives, we've been taught to selflessly help others, irrespective of whether they are humans or animals. Especially, with animals you need to be careful while rescuing them and take utmost care because they get scared easily and can't tell you how they feel. But, a macaw parrot in London knew exactly how she felt and clearly, that did not translate to “help me!”. 

Firefighter In London Told To 'F**k Off' By Parrot He Was Trying To Rescue© Twitter

A firefighter unintentionally got on the wrong side of Jessie, a yellow and blue Macaw parrot, who asked him to “f**k off” when he was trying to rescue her. Jessie was sitting for nearly three days on the roof of a house in Edmonton, North London. Out of concern and assuming that she might be hurt, the London Fire Brigade was called to attend to the bird and get her down. However, when a firefighter brought a bowl of food to her, she shrugged him off with her badassery and kept telling him to “f**k off”.

To rub salt to the already embarrassing situation, turns out Jessie wasn't injured in the first place. After giving the firefighter a piece of her mind, she flew to another roof and eventually flew back to her owner, thus giving major burn to the firefighters in the process.

Woah! Jessie, you've got some serious attitude problem, girl! You need to calm yourself down. 

Before the rescue mission, the owner gave specific instructions to the firefighter to say 'I love You' to Jessie. But, looks like Jessie was in no mood for all this. 

Honestly, I don't know what's more embarrassing - someone asking you to “f**k off” or being told to “f**k off” by a parrot. 

And you guys thought that you are having a bad day!

The final season of everyone's favourite 'Game Of Thrones' is still going to take a while before it hits our screens and blows us away with what it has to offer, in terms of the many questions that are hanging on our heads like daggers.

The New Jon Snow-Night King Theory Will Blow Your Mind© HBO

While the wait is crazy and it's less than a year (as if that's a consolation) left when we'll shun social life for decrypting episodes, a bizarre new theory about the insane connection between Jon Snow and the Night King is doing the rounds on Reddit. Let's discuss what everyone is expecting from the finale. A major chunk of the fan population feels that Jon Snow will reign, Khaleesi will unite and have a family of her own with him, Cersei will be defeated and it's going to be one happy ending for our guy who was previously unlucky in love with Ygritte. However, if history is proof then we know that the makers do anything that is ever predictable and everyone changes sides like a game of chess.

The New Jon Snow-Night King Theory Will Blow Your Mind© HBO

According to this bizarre new theory, Jon Snow will be the end of the Night King and will replace him, and not just kill him. Allow yourself a breather and read this before you react:

“Someone has to 'pull out' the dragon-glass in his chest which was used to create him in the first place. By doing this the Night King would 'die,' but unlike what happens when someone kills a 'normal' white walker, none of the creatures the Night king 'created' or turned would die. Instead they would lose the mind controlling effect the Night King has on them, and they would start doing whatever the f*ck they want, i.e. rampaging around the country. To prevent this scenario from happening someone has to take the place of the Night King by stabbing himself with the previously extracted dragonglass-dagger. By doing this the person (in our mind Jon Snow) would sacrifice himself for the greater good, gaining control over all of the wights and walkers. He then would lead them back over the wall back into the north where they would stay like it has been before since the last long night (like a beast in a cage).”

Now we know that Jon Snow is the ever-sacrificing, people-loving King; so this actually makes sense if you allow this theory to persist.

So I am adding this theory to the list of things that have addled our brains and made the wait harder that it already was.

The might of an actor lies in their ability to act, yes, but it is equally about creating an impact capable of leaving the audience intrigued and hooked on for more. An actor does not just portray a character and performs on stage or the screen, but also works on the delivery that does justice to the demands of the character and renders it memorable to every theatre or movie-goer.

While we talk about such fine actors, there's got to be a mention of the man of the moment, who has every cinema enthusiast going gaga about the endless possibilities over a particular '007' development. 

The World Might Have Just Found Its First Bond Of Colour© Reuters

News has surfaced that we might be looking at Idris Elba as the next “double-o-seven” in the making and we couldn't be more satisfied with the choice.

Known best for his dynamic acting skills and a voice that has played a pivotal role to making many roles highly memorable (think Shere Khan in the 'Jungle Book'), we bear no doubts that Idris makes for a great fit as “Bond, James Bond” in the upcoming movies after Daniel Craig's departure from the franchise next year.

More On The Man Himself

The World Might Have Just Found Its First Bond Of Colour© Reuters

For those who might not be well aware of the man in question, Idris Elba is a 45-year-old British actor, who has made a name and carved a niche for himself in Hollywood. Fondly remembered for his stellar performance as Stringer in 'The Wire' and BBC's home production drama 'Luther', Idris has time and again showed the world that he holds immense potential to go from suave to ruthless and from sinister to disarming in a matter of few characters (or even frames for that matter).

The news of him having potentially bagged the role of 007 started doing the rounds when he posted this intriguing tweet -

my name's Elba, Idris Elba. pic.twitter.com/kEyyaVg8JX

— Idris Elba (@idriselba) August 12, 2018

This got the tabloids into a frenzy and the news soon hit the screens across the world. However, within a little while, after the 'hype' began to gain momentum, Elba posted a new tweet that acted as sort of a killjoy to all the premature celebrations. This is what he had to say -

Don't believe the HYPE...

— Idris Elba (@idriselba) August 12, 2018

While we agree that we'd love to have a confirmation, this tweet has, however, left all of us hanging and we simply can't wait for a confirmation (or sadly even a denial) on the rumours!

Now, while we have been voicing our support for this choice, you surely didn't expect us to leave you hanging without giving you valid reasons for it. 

Here are Elba's performances in 5 major productions that will re-affirm that he is indeed the best choice for the iconic role.

1. Stringer Bell From 'The Wire'

The World Might Have Just Found Its First Bond Of Colour© YouTube

We had to kick off our argument with this one. The character of Stringer Bell portrayed by Elba in 'The Wire' is perhaps how the world went gaga over the man. 

His captivating and charismatic take on the aide de camp to a drug lord Barksdale, goes well with the cool and panache exhibited by Bond in difficult situations. Stringer Bell is calm and calculative with a display of intelligence we identify with 007. Convincingly cutthroat and well assessed in his means to achieve his targets, Bell reminds us of Bond's obsession of completing his missions to the T.

2. John Luther From 'Luther'

The World Might Have Just Found Its First Bond Of Colour© YouTube

The titular role that put Elba on the map was that of detective John Luther who exhibited more than a few similarities to Bond's ways in this show. 

The otherwise calm Luther's demeanour stood out in greater contrast when he lost his cool, again reminding us of Bond, who is known to play to cool and sharp at all times. 

The show's violent edge also comes in handy when we're trying to pitch the two characters' combating skills against each. Severe and exuding vibes that scream danger, Luther chooses to stay aloof and within a shell, with not many friendships to count on, much like Bond.

3. Commandant From 'Beasts Of No Nation'

The World Might Have Just Found Its First Bond Of Colour© YouTube

Another one of Elba's memorable portrayals, he does justice to the characters that are complex and flawed with defunct morals. His portrayal of a brutal and nuanced commandant or leader of a militia sets him as the predator who fights for the cause. 

The Commandant stands as an example of how situations can turn any man into a beast. The character and its struggles are relatable and on the other hand, remind us of Bond and his skilled antics and methods to achieve his goal without caring about the means. 

Charisma, strategy and resources all pulled into one - like Commandant, like Bond!

4. Nelson Mandela From 'Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom'

The World Might Have Just Found Its First Bond Of Colour© YouTube

When most actors shuddered at the idea, Elba came through as the perfect fit to play one of the world's most loved political leaders of all times. The stellar performance he renders in the movie befits Mandela's amazing life story. 

Elba effortlessly presented the leader's struggles and strengths, thereby giving the world a closer look at the man's life. From the myriad shades of Mandela that he showcases on the screen, it can be said that he possesses the capability to portray the multi-hued and demanding character of James Bond.

5. Stacker Pentecost From 'Pacific Rim'

The World Might Have Just Found Its First Bond Of Colour© YouTube

The leader of the pack and the one who sounded the cry of war and claimed his right to might, Marshal Stacker Pentecost came through as the ideal person to look up to. 

The depth of character and gravity that he showcases sets him in line to take up Bond's role in the truest sense. Pentecost is stern but can be kind too, just like Bond is to M, and knows just the right way to make people follow his commands.

The World Might Have Just Found Its First Bond Of Colour© Reuters

Based on the many skills and acting calibre exhibited by Elba over the years and across various genres of film and drama, we bear no doubt in our minds that he is indeed a great choice for Bond and is more than capable of doing justice to the iconic character.

The cryptocurrency craze was at its all-time high last year, as people were highly optimistic and the sudden demand made currencies like Bitcoin soar higher than ever. 

The timing was everything. In November 2016, India implemented demonetisation of the Rupee and the following months were harrowing for those with a huge pile of black money. 

Money laundering is a very old concept, every time any authority brings in a new law to curb it, the process changes. While many were fine with giving away a huge chunk in 'commission' for converting the black money to white, a new scheme was in town that promised to take your black money, pay you interest on that sum and ultimately improve your returns exponentially, thanks to the cryptocurrency boom.

One such scheme was run by BitConnect, a cryptocurrency firm that was being promoted in Gujarat by a man called Satish Kumbhani. The company promised to offer 1 per cent interest daily on Bitcoins and double its valuation within 100 days. Trading in cryptocurrency was still legally a grey area, there were no definite laws to regulate it. 

BitConnect lured many rich investors from all parts of India and carried out the transactions without any proper documentation. These transactions remained anonymous and were a perfect safe haven for laundering as well as earning out of your untaxed money.

The process was simple. You deposit your bitcoin with BitConnect and receive BitConnect (BCC) coins in return. Then you earn interest rates on their funds, which could sometimes be more than 40 per cent per month.

BitConnect's plan was to slowly increase the demand for its BCC currency, this way its value would also increase. And to lure in more people, the interest scheme was set up. This setup ensured that BCC's value kept on increasing and coins bought at US$ 50-100, became worth US$ 362 in a year.

All the uptrend came to a screeching halt when the company's operation was kept on hold by the securities boards of Texas and North Carolina, USA. 

BCC crashed to a meagre US$ 2 overnight and it currently trades for just US$ 0.5. A perfect Ponzi scheme, BitConnect collected Bitcoins that were globally valued, and in return gave their own so-called currency, that has no backing. 

The Reserve Bank of India (RBI) has practically banned all virtual crypto-based transactions in the country. Google searches about black money, laundering, and tax evasion spiked massively after November 2016 and in a bid to find a safe route for their possessions, investors blindly fell into such traps.

Many phones from major companies like ASUS, Essential, LG and ZTE are shipping with severe vulnerabilities out of the box, according to a report by cyber-security firm Kryptowire. 

Android is the most targeted mobile OS, firstly because of its huge user base, and secondly, because OEMs usually install their own skins on top, without keeping security in mind. 

Apps are usually the easiest way to gain access to your phone, a link you may have clicked, or a .apk file you may have installed could be syphoning your data in the background. This has been the core reason why Google has always recommended its users to install apps from trusted sources or the Play Store.

Kryptowire has recognised 38 different vulnerabilities that can allow spying and factory reset to be loaded onto 25 Android phones. There are at least 10 devices sold across the major US carriers that come pre-loaded with bugs that are a security threat. The list of Android vendors affected includes Asus, Essential, LG, Nokia, Sony, and ZTE.

Angelos Stavrou, Kryptowire's CEO, and Ryan Johnson, the firm's director of research, disclosed their findings at the DEFCON hacker conference on Friday.

"All of these are vulnerabilities that are prepositioned. They come as you get the phone out the box," Stavrou said. "That's important because consumers think they're only exposed if they download something that's bad." 

Essential has confirmed that they have fixed the vulnerability after Kryptowire shared their findings, while LG has said it's working on fixing these loop-holes. Even ASUS has confirmed that they are working on patching the security concerns raised and will be pushing out OTA updates soon.

Kryptowire says the issues are at the firmware level, as malicious apps from the Google Play store too can cause a lot of damage. The ASUS ZenFone Live is said to be the most affected one, as it exposes the user's entire data and a complete system takeover is possible including taking screenshots and video recordings of a user's screen and making phone calls. 

If you own any of these phones, you should install OTA updates as soon as possible in the coming few weeks. Running an anti-malware app won't be of any help here, as the loop-holes are at the firmware level.

Not too long ago, an Indian sportsperson made an emotional appeal when barely 2000 people showed up to watch him and his team play against Chinese Taipei (which India won by 5-0). Yes, you guessed it right! We're talking about captain Sunil Chhetri, who urged his fans to come and see the match and said, "Abuse us, criticise us but please come to watch the Indian national team play." 

Virat Kohli Posts An Emotional Message For Fans After Lord's Defeat© Twitter

People were so moved by his appeal that the subsequent matches against Kenya and New Zealand were sold out. At times fans' support is all that our sportspersons need to boost their morale and we've already seen the amount of difference fans can make in the lives of their favourite players. 

Fast forward to the present time and another captain has now urged his fans to never give up on him and his team. We're talking about Indian skipper Virat Kohli who posted an emotional message on social media, after the Indian Cricket team lost against England second time in a row, in the ongoing Test series at Lord's. England won by an innings and 159 runs. Reportedly, it was the first innings defeat since the Oval Test (2014) and the first-ever innings defeat under Kohli's Test captaincy.  

Virat Kohli Posts An Emotional Message For Fans After Lord's Defeat© Reuters

Victory or loss is part and parcel of every sport and owning up to it and taking a lesson from it is one of the hardest things to do and possibly the best way to go about the defeat. And Virat Kohli who is known for unabashedly expressing himself, did not shy away from facing defeat and wrote this message, which will make every fan fall in love with him all over again. 

He wrote, "Sometimes we win and other times we learn. You never give up on us and we promise to never give up on you either. Onwards and upwards."

While people are busy bashing Kohli and his strategies, let's not forget that Kohli is standing against the English players like a wall and putting a tough competition in front of them. India will be playing the third match on 18th August at Trent Bridge.

While we all eat for different fitness goals, sometimes following certain guidance on food instructions blindly can cause certain complications if you are intolerant or allergic to certain foods. It is very important to be sure what food works for you and what type of food could kick you back to the starting line when you are so close to making those gains. So let's start with understanding that food allergies and being intolerant to certain foods are two different things.

Understanding The Difference Between The Two

Food allergy causes an immune system reaction that affects different organs in the body. It can cause many symptoms. In some cases, an allergic food reaction can be severe or even send you to the hospital for days. Food intolerance symptoms are generally less serious and often have to do with just digestion issues. For example, certain people, who are lactose intolerant, could make them run to the toilet almost immediately. So, this is a good heads up for the guys who plan on starting with whey protein.

Symptoms Of Food Intolerance Could Look Like Those Of Food Allergy

A big difference in food intolerance is that it does not involve an attack on the immune system or cause severe allergic reactions such as bloated face, rashes on the skin, etc. While food allergies can be detected through medical tests, food intolerance does not show on medical tests. Symptoms may begin at any age and may develop quickly or slowly. It occurs more commonly in women, which may be because of hormone differences, as many food chemicals mimic hormones

Symptoms Of Food Intolerance

There are certain things that happen to you that could indicate you are intolerant to certain foods. Sudden body tremors, breaking out into cold sweats, feeling of palpitations, loose motions, breathing problems, unusual feeling on the skin such as burning sensation, these things are common. Pay attention to these signs and act upon it quickly.

Symptoms Of Food Allergy

If you happen to experience any of the following symptoms, then you better put that cookie down! Itching, burning and swelling around the mouth, swollen eyes and face skin rashes almost immediately after eating something you're allergic to, feeling of nausea and then vomiting, abdominal cramps are certain symptoms you need to look at.

Treating Food Allergy Or Intolerance

Sometimes you have no choice but to give up on certain foods that were giving you all those gains. But it's for your own safety and health. But that would be the simplest way. Sometimes temporarily stopping some food for a period and then resuming to eat it after a big gap, that too in small quantities would be fine for food intolerant people, but allergies to certain food could be a lifelong symptom and those people may have to come in terms with that. Before you eliminate or reintroduce foods, seek advice from a specialist doctor and dietitian.

Conclusion

Dealing with food allergies can be irritating. The degree of reaction to certain allergies or intolerance can range from just a slight botheration to something that could be deadly. People with food allergy must vigilantly avoid the foods or supplementations that trigger a reaction. When food intolerance is present, it is important for people to plan, particularly while away from home. Checking with the people at the restaurant about the type of food served to simply preparing your own meals wherever you go would be a smarter option to avoid anything that could pull you backwards with your fitness goals.

Eating right is a task especially when surrounded with a lot of challenges, and people who are prone to these complications need to be extra careful.

Whenever you open any fitness or health website, you can always see a new workout program that has come up and promises you with serious gains. A lot of emphasis is given to workouts in research-based articles too. I am not saying that it's something that bad but you are forgetting that gains aren't just the results of your hard work in the gym. It is your recovery too that needs be to be prioritized. When we talk about gains, recovery is often neglected and then people struggle to make it to the gym the next day or even if they do, they lack the intensity. What's the use of that new workout program if it can't even recover your body for the next workout session? Today, I am going to tell you a few tips that will help you shorten your recovery period so that you can be prepared for the next workout session in no time.

1) Monitor Your Pre And Post Workout Nutrition

No matter what diet you are on and no matter how much low-carb you go, make sure that you consume enough carbs around your workout time. The reason for this is that you want to make sure that when you enter the gym, you have enough glycogen stores in your muscles and once you leave the gym, you replenish your glycogen stores properly. Training fatigue is directly related to your glycogen stores. If your glycogen stores are depleted when you start training, you will feel more fatigued. Similarly if you do not re-feed yourself with enough carbs, you will feel fatigued throughout the day. Thus, to speed up the recovery process, make sure that you consume enough carbs before and after your workout.

2) Make Sleeping Your Part Time Job

Recovery is impossible till the time you get a good sleep daily. The sleep should preferably be at the same time and for the same number of hours, daily. It should form a part of your daily routine just like your office and gym. While you may think that getting a good sleep of 8 to 9 hours once or twice a week is okay but you may not know that you might be a victim of poor quality of sleep. People who get poor quality of sleep often face the problem of increase in cortisol, decreased insulin sensitivity and higher release of hunger hormone known as ghrelin. Sleep disturbances also impact your testosterone and growth hormone which have a direct impact on your recover period. Thus, consider sleep as your daily job if you are serious about your recovery and gains.

3) Supplement If Necessary

Though I am not a big fan of supplementation but when necessary you should use them. Supplements like whey protein and Citrulline Malate can help you immensely with shortening the recovery process. People who consume whey protein after their workout are able to recover in lesser time than people who don't. Amino acids like Glutamine and L Carnitine help your body to recover in lesser time than a placebo. Citrulline Malate also helps in shortening the recovery period by reducing the soreness in your body.

In case you didn't know, Apple is expected to launch three new iPhones this month which will comprise one iPhone X successor with an OLED screen, a larger 6.5-inch model with an OLED display and another 6.1-inch LCD variant. We've known this for a while; however, the names of the next iPhone may have also been leaked on the interwebs. New reports suggest that the three iPhones will be called iPhone XS, iPhone 9 and iPhone XS Plus, respectively. 

Here's a Better Look At The 3 New iPhones© YouTube

If you're wondering how the devices will look and feel like, we've included two hands-on videos of the three devices that were acquired by YouTubers. From the videos, we can derive that all three models will have a glass sandwich design while the iPhone 9 will have an LCD display and single camera setup. One can also notice that the flash module has been moved to the bottom of the camera sensor to give it a unique look. The 5.8-inch iPhone XS will sport an OLED display and have a vertical dual camera set up at the back. The iPhone XS Plus will have the same design albeit a larger 6.5-inch screen. All three models are said to support wireless charging just like the current generation. 

Here's a Better Look At The 3 New iPhones© YouTube

One should also note that the hands-on video below is of three high-quality replicas of the actual phone that will launch in September. The videos showcase everything we have mentioned above and the only notable difference is the large lock screen button on the iPhone 9. Here are the two videos if you want to get a closer look:

 

There aren't any pricing details known for the new iPhones; however, we can draw a conclusion from reports published by top analyst Ming-Chi Kuo. According to Kuo, the 6.1-inch LCD model will be priced at $600-$700 while the 5.8-inch iPhone XS will cost between $700-800. The more expensive iPhone XS Plus will be the costliest model of them all and is touted to start at $999.

While technically you can use your beard trimmer to shave you body hair as well - do you really want to do that? Just think about it for a second. Firstly, would you want to use the same trimmer for your beard (and on your face!) that you'll be using on other (less hygienic) parts of your body? And secondly, a trimmer just cannot be as effective (or hygienic) as an electric shaver can. As such, using an electric shaver becomes a more effective, hygienic, and in some cases the ONLY way of shaving your hair.

Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas' love affair is pretty much the topic of everyone's interest these days. No doubt, everyone wants to know if they are engaged or are getting married this September.

Priyanka Chopra Breaks Silence On Engagement To Nick Jonas© Twitter

Having a celebrity status often means being under the scanner at all times, and your every move is tracked and talked about. Well, being a celebrity has it owns perks and losses.

For instance, Priyanka exiting from Salman Khan's 'Bharat' gave birth to the speculation that she did it, because of her engagement to Nick Jonas. However, later on, we got to know that it was because she had signed a movie with Chris Pratt.

Just yesterday, even Salman Khan went all savage when asked about PeeCee's exit.

While nothing official has been announced yet about her relationship status, Priyanka finally broke her silence on the matter.

The actress shared her thoughts during a session on 'Challenging the Status Quo & Forging New Paths' organised by FICCI Ladies Organisation in Delhi, last night.

Her response was classic PeeCee, making it clear once and for all that, her personal life is not for “public consumption”.

“My personal life is not for public consumption. 90 per cent of my life is for public consumption but 10 per cent is for me. I am a girl and I have the right to keep that to myself. My family, friendship, my relationships are things I don't think I need to defend or explain to anyone. I am not running for the Office, so I don't think I need to give explanations.”

Well, no doubt fans are pretty excited about PeeCee and Nick and whatever new venture lies in their future, but at times, most of us tend to forget that even they have a personal life, and have all the rights to keep a part of it to themselves.

Well, official or not, we are definitely loving our desi girl and her awesome attitude.

When they said your body is your temple, they actually referred to a temple with good maintenance, not an ancient structure that will fall apart and is only dependent on your prayers. 

You need to take care of your body and do your best to make it reach its best version, because honestly, that is the only thing you really own, and the only thing money can't buy you. A well-built body, and the efforts you have put in to achieve that, legit count as your best investment.

In MXP Body Love, we will ask people with amazing bodies the key questions, and seek their guidance on the same. Our Body Love expert here, is actor Tushar Khanna, who answers 7 questions on how to look good without clothes.

1. One Food You Should Never, Ever Eat?

For me, it has got to be sugar. Sugar is one of the most dangerous food items because it's the hardest to get rid of from your diet, and causes the most damage. I have read that getting rid of a sugar addiction is as hard as quitting drugs, because they impact the same part of your brain. I try avoiding it as much as I can, but I give in a little bit on my cheat days. A man's gotta survive!

2. The One Body Part You Should Never Ignore When It Comes To Workout?

Legs. When it comes to Indian gyms, I have noticed most people are just obsessed with their upper bodies, mainly chest and arms, and end up ignoring their lower body. The result? A weak core, and a weird, misshapen body. Chicken legs are not sexy, homies! Also, your upper body strength increases when your legs are equally strong.

Tushar Khanna On How To Look Good Naked© Instagram

3. Natural Fuzz vs. Waxed/Trimmed Body Hair?

I am more of a natural or neatly trimmed person. I anyway don't have an excessive growth, plus waxing is just not my thing. I don't think I can ever get waxing done, because it hurts even while thinking about it, haha!

4. Grooming Essentials - What Are The Products You Can't Do Without?

Face wash, sun block and a moisturiser. I also think it's extremely important to scrub once a week, to get rid of dead skin. I only use products by Kiehl's, as they suit my skin type.

5. Shave Down There Or Trim It?

Trim, always.

6. Best Lighting For Clicking Nudes (Or Just For The Boudoir)?

If you're in good shape, the lighting doesn't matter!  *winks*

7. Any Last-Minute Tip?

If you ask me, I'd just say that confidence is the key to looking good, with or without clothes. Just be proud of who you are, and be confident, and you'll automatically look good.

If you've ever felt that you are too old to pursue a passion that you once cherished, or are too old to chase a dream which you buried alive, then this beautiful story is a life lesson for all of you. 

96-year-old Karthyayani Amma from Kerala went back to school and enrolled in the 4th standard in order to complete her education and wants to finish 10th grade as well.

Inspiring 96-Yr-Old Lady From Kerala Goes Back To School© The Week

It all began in January 2018, when the literacy crew of the 'Cheppad Gram Panchayat' was on a literacy drive for the elderly, and while most people didn't show any interest, Karthyayani came forward happily to participate.  

She spends time learning tables in Mathematics and also took her first exam recently, which she cleared with good marks. She draws inspiration from her 60-year-old daughter Ammini Amma, who passed the literacy mission's course. 

Karthyayani now wants to learn English and follow the footsteps of her daughter.

The elderly woman's will and passion have inspired 30 senior citizens to take up the same course and pursue education. 

Ironically, her father was a tutor but she and her sister gave up their education at the age of 12 owing to their circumstances. 

This piece of news is not only heartwarming but makes you believe that there still is hope for our nation to grow as a whole, where our elderly are not cruelly left to their fate, but embraced and cherished right until their last days.

The world is aware of the fact that our Indian soldiers are known for their bravery, fearlessness, courage and selflessness.  Honestly, no amount of words can express our gratitude towards them, for putting their lives in danger to protect us from external threats. 

But, on days when they are not risking their lives to protect us, they are just like any one of us, who love singing and dancing. Watching them showcase their skills is a treat for us indeed.  

Indian ArmyWikimedia (For Representation)

Recently, we came across a dance video of an Indian soldier, which is now going viral and it speaks volumes about his exceptional talent and amazing dance moves. In fact, this jawan's hip-hop moves are so good, he can give most of our Bollywood actors a run for their money.

As he danced to the beats of a popular song from the movie 'Aloo Chaat', his fellow soldiers were seen cheering for him and so will you, once you start watching the video.

Men, let me tell you one thing. Women check you out even before agreeing to go out on a date with you, and if you fail in their style or 'presence' meter, you're not making it anywhere with them. First impressions go all the way and you wouldn't want to fail in that department now, would you?

When you get dressed in the morning, you obviously want to look good for yourself and make yourself irresistible to the ladies. That will only happen with two things- always listen to the ladies in your life about style, and stop wearing jeans that are tighter than JLo's butt.

Women On The Most Attractive Clothes A Guy Can Wear© Facebook

We rounded up 12 women and asked them about the sexiest, most attractive things men can wear or don (thank us later?) and here's what they had to say :

A Nice Fitted Suit

Women On The Most Attractive Clothes A Guy Can Wear© Eros International

"I like a man who can fit into a nice suit and show his body off. Of course, he needs to be lean and have a decent body to show it off through his suit. I don't like men who dress up scruffy, especially for a formal occasion or wear loose clothes. I mean, what's the deal with cargo shorts and a tee that hangs on you like you're a hanger"? - Priyanjali, 32.

A Pair Of Nice Boxers

"I am a big sucker for men in their boxers. Yeah, it's probably the same as men having a thing for women in their underwear, but this is different. I'd like my man to roam about the house in nothing but boxers and it would turn me on, instantly! I think boxers should become a legit thing to wear outdoors"! - Kritika, 30

White Tee & Jeans

Women On The Most Attractive Clothes A Guy Can Wear© Pinterest

"This fetish for seeing men in a white T-shirt and jeans started with my obsession with John Abraham and I fall weak on my knees when I see any man dressed like that. Support the jeans with a good belt and you're golden!" - Khushboo, 29

A Pair Of Good Sneakers

Women On The Most Attractive Clothes A Guy Can Wear© Pinterest

"Basic good sneakers can go a long way and can be pulled off with a pair of cargos or denims even. I am not too big a fan of colourful sneakers but a basic black or white would do. Even a good pair of Converse is quite cool on a guy". - Hinakshi, 23

A Pink Tee/Shirt

Women On The Most Attractive Clothes A Guy Can Wear© Twitter

"For me, pink is associated with positive emotions and if a guy can pull the colour off, it's really sexy. A nice light/baby pink shirt looks remarkable on a man. Who says pink is only meant for girls?" - Deepti, 28

Chinos

"It's a refreshing change to see a man in a pair of well-fitted chinos, than the regular denims or pants. Khakhi chinos look really amazing on men and if they have a great butt, it's a double whammy"! - Akanksha, 33

Polo T-Shirts

"I like men in Polo tees and prefer them to v-necks or round necks any day. They look comfortable, stylish and suave, all at the same time. They're also the best thing to wear if you want to experiment with different colours." - Harshleen, 25

A Pair Of Aviators

Women On The Most Attractive Clothes A Guy Can Wear© Twitter

"Oh man, whenever I see a guy in aviators, I just want to go right up ahead and get to know him better! They look so hot on men and they're the most stylish, old-school things that will never lose their charm! A man walking down the street in a pair of good aviators is surely going to turn some heads around" - Mansi, 35

A V-Neck Sweater

"I have a thing for men in solid v-neck sweaters. I think they look rather classy with denims or with a pair of pants even and it can be used for both formal and informal wear. Solid colours define the actual taste of a man. So, if I see a man in a nice blue v-neck, I'll definitely check him out"! - Gauri, 24

A Black Henley

Women On The Most Attractive Clothes A Guy Can Wear© Pinterest

"Henley's are cool and can be worn with anything, from shorts, to cargos, to denims to even pants. It's a step up from a t-shirt and great for casual weekend wear, I think. Guys pulling off a Henley look darn confident. I LOVE the colour black, so a black one does the trick pretty well" - Prachi, 27

Rolled Sleeves

Women On The Most Attractive Clothes A Guy Can Wear© Twitter

"I love men who roll their shirt sleeves up and show their forearms off. Boy, that's such a turn on! It just makes it seem like he's kicking back and relaxing after doing some rugged work all day. I always insist my man on rolling his sleeves up, haha"! - Natasha, 30

Mufflers & Beanies

"Men in winters have to look warm fuzzy and hot, all at the same time. They should be like a cup of nice warm tea. Making you feel really good! I love men wearing caps, hoodies and beanies for the winter with a nice warm muffler. They look so tempting"! - Trisha, 29

So, there we have it. 12 women revealing what looks the most attractive to them in a man, in terms of accessories and clothing. Wear this stuff in front of them, and you're golden. 

Apart from these clothes, you need two more things though. An ounce of confidence and a smile that lights your face up, to match your outfit!

While we don't know him personally, Ranveer Singh's online presence screams one thing – this guy really loves himself. He literally is the definition of self-love and every person should honestly aspire to appreciating themselves so much, it's so important.

The world sucks so you gotta be your own biggest fan and hype yourself as much as you can and to achieve that, let's take some pointers from our favourite eccentric actor.

After going through his Instagram, one biggest observation I made was how he almost always posts his own pictures, even Deepika isn't there in a single picture. He also uses his Instagram stories to hype himself up.

Exhibit A – all three of his stories from today.

Probably an old picture that should be seen by everyone again.

Ask any pseudo-scientist: “What is the best way to lose fat?” and the answer you will get is: “Do Keto Bro! Carbs are bad & make you fat.”

The Ketogenic aka Keto Diet has been trending in the fitness community for quite some time. It is basically an extremely low carbohydrate diet. A person on a keto diet will be consuming merely 30-80 carbs per day. The advocates of this diet proclaim it to be an advanced diet for boosting fat loss. But does the keto diet really live up to its hype?

The Hidden Truth Behind The Very Popular Keto Diet© YouTube

In this article we will be scientifically breaking down everything you need about ketogenic diets:

* Nutrition Basics

* What Is It?

* How It Works? (KETOSIS)

* Is It Superior To Other Diets? (Breaking The Bubble)

Nutrition Basics

Like any machine, the human body requires fuel to function. Humans have 3 fuel sources (Macronutrients), that is, protein, fats and carbohydrates. Alcohol is the fourth macronutrient but for a healthy and well-functioning body, it is advised that you get majority of energy from the initial three macronutrients. Calories are the amount of energy your body can derive from these macronutrients. Caloric content of all four macronutrients is mentioned below.

The Hidden Truth Behind The Very Popular Keto Diet

Essential And Non-Essential Macronutrients

Protein and fats are essential macronutrients, carbohydrates are non-essential. Essential means body requires them for survival. Protein is necessary for the maintenance of lean muscle mass and vital organs such as the heart. Fats are necessary for hormonal regulation.

P.S: Non-essential does not mean carbs are bad. (More on it ahead!)

What Is The Keto Diet?

Typically an individual consumes a combination of the three macronutrients. If you watch your everyday Indian diet, it has some amount of protein, moderate fats and a lot of carbohydrates (lentils, pulses, rotis, rice, fruits, etc). A keto diet removes all carbohydrate containing foods such as potatoes, whole wheat, milk, fruits, rice, oats, etc. The diet primarily consists of foods high in fat and proteins such as meat, chicken, fish, cheese, nuts, etc. Thus, in a nutshell, keto diet is a low carb, high fat and moderate protein diet.

As stated above, carbohydrates are not an essential macronutrient. Carbohydrates are broken into glucose which the body utilizes for various purposes. Carbs are the preferred source of energy for our body but technically our body requires glucose, not carbohydrates. In the absence of carbohydrates, in case of a Keto diet, the body can produce its own glucose by breaking down amino acids in the muscles by the process called 'gluconeogenesis'.  But solely relying on this mechanism will result in excessive muscle tissue losses in vital organs such as the heart, and eventually causing death. And to sustain this mechanism (being alive) a lot of protein intake would be required, which is 350-450g per day.

Next, the body can also rely on Free Fatty Acids (FFA) in the bloodstream and stored body fat, for energy requirements. Most of the tissues in the body can utilize FFA as fuel.

However, our brain cannot use FFA. Hence, your body begins to oxidize fat for the production of Ketone which  are a byproduct of incomplete metabolism of FFA in the liver. Our body is producing ketones in some amounts all the time but under normal dietary conditions, they play an insignificant role. During a ketogenic diet, ketones play a significant role in energy production, especially in the brain (The brain can derive up to 75% of energy from Ketones.) When ketones are produced at accelerated rates, they accumulate in the bloodstream, causing a metabolic state called ketosis. This shifts the body's metabolic system from glucose utilisation to fat utilisation, which is the basic principle of a keto diet.

Is It Superior To Other Diets?

“As your body is oxidizing fat for energy production, your body turns into a fat burning machine.”

I am sure you must have heard this statement from a Pro-Keto person. Even though your body is oxidizing fat for energy production, all of it is not body fat (which you want to lose) and at the same time you are also consuming substantial amounts of dietary fats, ranging anywhere from 150-250g per day. When caloric intakes are matched the amount of fat loss on a conventional balanced diet and a ketogenic diet is about the same. Therefore, total caloric intake is the fundamental factor that influences fat loss.

And if you overeat calories on a Ketogenic diet as well, you will get fat. Calories are what counts, after all! (Surprise)

Faster Fat Loss?

Ketogenic or any other low carb diet is believed to accelerate the rate of fat loss. Individuals on a keto diet will observe drop of 500g-1Kg within one day. But this is mainly due to water loss from the body and not true fat loss. Cutting carbohydrate intake affects water levels in the body. Every gram of carbohydrate stores 3 grams of water in the body. So, if you drop 200g carbohydrates from your diet you would easily lose 400-600g. Hence, majority of the initial weight drop on a keto diet is water weight. Once water loss has been taken into account, the rate of total fat loss is generally the same for ketogenic versus non-ketogenic diets.

Final Verdict

The ketogenic diet simply provides a fat-derived fuel alternative (Ketones)  for the body. It cannot be called a fad diet but it is also not superior to other conventional diets for fat loss.

Chhote Nawab has always had that rare royal edge to his outfits, irrespective of what he is wearing. Being a 'Nawab' has to be stressful when it comes to maintaining an apt appearance everywhere you go, but Saif has proved time and time again, consistently so, that he can manage to do that without breaking a sweat. In fact, he is an inspiration for anyone who wants to dress up like the royalty. His latest appearance cemented that fact, when he stepped out wearing the ultimate vintage outfit - a 'Godfather' inspired suit, with a real red rose to boot.

Saif has decided to keep and grow his majestic 'Sartaj Singh' beard from 'Sacred Games', which just intensified the appeal of the outfit. (Okay, the fact that Kubra Sait accompanied him, looking every bit as resplendent as Kukoo, certainly helped). The wide lapelled old world charm of his blazer was a perfect addition to the modern trousers, with a vertical side stripe. Saif looked straight out of an Italian movie from the '70s or '80s. Vito Corleone would be proud!

Saif's look was so on point, that SRK decided to shower some major love on him.

No wonder they are the OG style icons of Bollywood.

That look was totally lit, Saif. *Applause*

Learning a foreign language is not an easy task. It takes a lot of time, effort and dedication to learn a new language and be fluent in it. I am sorry but asking for 'wo-tah' instead of water does not count as learning a foreign language, it's just a fake accent.

Language classes were a huge deal back in school and had most of us not bunked those lessons to watch movies with our friends, we would have learned something new by now, or at least could have gotten the world talking about us, just like how they are praising this Chinese woman right now.

What can be so special or unique about a Chinese woman talking about the Great Wall of China, that people are watching the video on loop? Her impeccable Tamil speaking skills. 

While most of us can't even speak our native language fluently, she made speaking in Tamil look like child's play for everyone watching the video.

Anand Mahindra, whose Twitter account is like a goldmine when it comes to looking for unique extraordinary talent, found and shared this video with the caption, "Not easy to learn the accent & cadence of the language but this Chinese lady seems to have conquered the Great Wall of Tamil." 

Thanks for this video Ravi. Fun start to a Monday. Not easy to learn the accent & cadence of the language but this Chinese lady seems to have conquered the Great Wall of Tamil. Have to ask my buddy @MM_Murugappan if he approves..ð pic.twitter.com/h3V8cr30Gm

Apart from her flawless Tamil speaking skills, people even loved her traditional attire (off-white Anarkali with a red dupatta). Although the way she spoke wasn't colloquial and looked like its straight from a textbook, we are really impressed with her efforts. 

I wish I had paid more attention to my foreign language classes, than on the food in the canteen!

Apple has been performing extremely well in terms of sales and revenues and the company just released the company's third-quarter results. The earnings are indicative of the fact, that Apple has been earning most of its money from services and hardware sales. 

Apple sold 41.3 million iPhones during the third quarter of the fiscal year. The sales figures were only marginally lower than what was expected by Wall Street, however, Apple made up for it with an increased average selling price. 

The average selling price of the iPhone stood at $724, thanks to the higher priced iPhone X that retails starting at $999.

In terms of revenue from services, Apple says the company earned $9.54 billion in revenue in the last quarter, a 31 percent year-over-year growth. 

Apple earns the majority of its revenue in services from the App Store, Apple Music, Apple Care, Apple Pay, Cloud services and other business solutions. Apple recently celebrated the 10th anniversary of the App Store and said the company has paid $100 billion to developers.

Apple earned $29.9 billion in revenue from iPhone sales, which is a 20 percent increase from the same period last year. Even though the iPhone sales declined considerably, thanks to increased competition in premium smartphone space. 

Apple is now looking to launch new iPhone models later this year that will have a similar design to the iPhone X.
