Shut Up And Eat More Cholesterol If You Want Higher Testosterone Levels

I see a lot of unhealthy people trying to be healthy, avoiding cholesterol. Show them an egg yolk and chances are that they won’t speak with you again. These are the same people who clock in countless hours on the treadmill, cheat every Friday and hop from one diet to another but still stay fat. Well, if you identify yourself as one, it’s not your fault, you are just gravely misinformed. The Research That Demonized Cholesterol And How We Got it All Wrong © Youtube In the year 1956, Dr. Ancel Keys, a noted American scientist conducted a study popularized as the ‘Seven Countries Study’. The study specifically stated that ‘dietary fat’ and ‘cholesterol’ caused heart diseases. In actuality, Keys cherry-picked only 7 countries where the data ‘mostly’ not ‘really’ supported his flawed theory, out of the 22 in which the study took place. Hence, ‘Seven Countries Study’. The study was quickly picked up by USFDA and propagated throughout America. Of course, the world had to follow suit. Dietary fat and cholesterol were now officially the ‘culprits’. As the study seeped into regular life, fat was actively abandoned. Sadly though, people were still not getting any thinner. In fact, they were getting fatter than they had ever been. Why? People replaced fats with carbohydrates. The study had to be questioned now.  It’s The ‘Very High’ Carbohydrate Intake That Can Give You A Heart Attack. Saturated Fat Has NOTHING To DO With Heart Diseases © Thinkstock Simply putting it, fats don’t make you fat. Excessive consumption of refined carbohydrates makes you fat and vulnerable to heart ailments. Carbohydrates high in sugars and low in fiber are related to lower HDL (good cholesterol levels) and very high LDL (bad cholesterol). The triglycerides levels are also greatly affected by high carbohydrate intake. If you are consuming as much as 60% calories from carbohydrates and are predominantly a couch potato, you REALLY need to cut back! Testosterone Is Derived From Cholesterol. More Testosterone Means More Muscle © Thinkstock The most potent muscle building hormone is testosterone and the body can only derive it from Cholesterol. Yes, the higher the good cholesterol, the higher will be your T levels. So next time you take that chicken skin off or decide to dump the eggs yellows, think that you are wasting testosterone. But please, now don’t go out chasing high serum cholesterol. Just stick to eating whole eggs, beef, shrimp and cheese.

We Used The iPhone 7 and Itandamprsquos One Of The Best Phones Weve Put Our Hands On

Whenever Apple comes out with a new phone, the world suddenly stops. Even though the iPhone 7 and the iPhone 7 Plus are not exceptionally groundbreaking phones, they still retain that oomph factor every other phone manufacturer desires. The continuity of design has made Apple one of the most consistent brands out there.  The iPhone had the home button which was iconic to many of its users, but it’s now gone. Instead, they have replaced it with pressure sensors, and vibrations with haptic feedback that makes you feel as if a button is present there. And, of course, they removed the headphone jack.  Apple’s decision to remove the headphone jack was the butt of all jokes, but if you really think about it, it was an act of confidence. Sure, it causes all of us a few inconveniences, but Apple feels it’s time to move on. They have done the same thing with some of their own proprietary products like the 30-pin connector, and they were the first ones to remove the CD drive from a laptop. So, we can assume that the headphone jack’s days are numbered. No Headphone Jack? How will I live my life!  Let me tell you one thing, I was probably the most pissed off dude on the planet when Apple announced that the headphone jack was gone. We’ve been using headphones for the past 50 years and we’re very used to the 3.5Mmm jack. It’s the only way we knew how to listen to music. It’s the only thing common between my grandparents and me.  The new lightning earpods that come with the phone feel exactly the same. They fit well in the ear and are good for calls, just like the older version. However, when it comes to listening to music, the audio quality did drop a bit. Even when I used my monitoring headphones that I connected via the audio jack adapter, the sound quality was good but not up to the mark. You see, a digital audio output can never be better than the audio output you’d get from an analogue device. At least with what technology we have available today. However, the inclusion of the lightning to audio jack adapter does not alienate people completely.  The real motive here is to push users towards wireless audio. Which is why they have introduced their new AirPods, which are essentially a wireless Bluetooth earphone which pairs up with the phone faster and easier than any generic Bluetooth headset. This is possible because of Apple’s chip called the ‘W1’ and custom software that is present on all Apple products.  However, there is one major criticism we cannot ignore. The phone cannot be charged and have headphones plugged in at the same time.  Unless you buy a separate accessory which will cost you a bomb! Considering the fact that we are already paying INR 60,000 for the phone, it doesn’t look like a sound investment.  It Actually Loves The Water Now With any previous iPhone, I always had to be careful when I was around water. However, with the iPhone 7, since it is water resistant I could use the phone in the shower with my waterproof UE speakers, I dumped it in a bathtub and I even put in a bag of full of water for a long period of time to see how it did. Much to my surprise, the phone survived every scenario in perfect working condition. It’s Got The Best Smartphone Camera, Period The iPhone 7 camera is the best camera in the market right now. This is not just a claim by Apple, it’s a fact. One needs to understand that most people upgrade to a new phone judging by the camera performance. The iPhone 7 has a new and faster f/1.8 lens which enables it to take pictures with fuller and wider colours. The image stabilisation has drastically improved and it easily outperforms the iPhone 6s, Galaxy S7 and other top tier phones. The only phone that comes close to its quality is the Google Pixel.  However, you must note that when you compare images from the iPhone 6s and 7, there isn’t much difference. The only way you can tell the dissimilarity is when you zoom in and that is where the iPhone 7 blows the 6s out of the water.  Home Button, What Home Button? The iPhone 7 has no home button. It got a reaction from almost everyone but hey, it’s not what you think. You can no longer ‘click’ the home button since it doesn’t move at all. Instead, it’s completely solid like the trackpad on the MacBook.  The Taptic Engine which jolts when you apply pressure is the feature that tricks your brain into thinking that you might be clicking a button. There are three different types of haptic feedback settings and it still feels strange since you really aren’t clicking on something.   I loved the new button, but most people in our office found it uncomfortable. It’s a matter of getting used to it. The Taptic Engine adds a lot of depth to the phone as it interacts with iOS 10 cohesively. For example, if you drop down the notification shade or do something similar, it gives you a slight nudge.  A nudge, that made me feel as if iOS 10 is alive and is responding to my commands. 3D touch is still hanging about on the iPhone 7’s display and it works just like it used to on the iPhone 6s.  Other Observations The iPhone 7 does have better battery life than the 6s as it lasts 1-1.5 hours longer. It would last for 6-7 hours with continuous web browsing, WhatsApp and music streaming while 3G or LTE was switched on. I used the iPhone 7 for Apple Music very often as I have a very long commute to work. I check Facebook, Twitter, Snapchat and take pictures because it was part of my job.  With constant GPS use, music streaming and aggressively checking social media, the phone lasted for 13 hours for me and I still have about 10% left. The iPhone 7 has stereo speakers which makes the sound quality better and louder than before. Multi-tasking and playing games are as smooth as you can imagine thanks to the A10 chip.  The Final Say If you are a loyal Apple user, you need to get this now. Break your current phone, throw it in a pool or drop it from the top of your building, but upgrade it as soon as possible. The iPhone 7 starts at INR 57,000 and can go up to INR 72,000 but it’s worth every rupee. If colour preference is your choice, we must advise you stay away from the Jet Black since we live in India and it does tend to get very dusty.

Microsoft Unveils The Surface Studio Its First Ever Desktop Computer andamp Its Way Ahead of Its Time

For some time now, desktops seem to have taken a backseat, thanks to our generation’s gradual bend towards laptops and MacBooks. But, things are about to get a little more interesting as Microsoft introduces its first ever desktop computer that turns into a digital drafting table and trust us; it’s going to blow your mind. This computer, called the Surface Studio, is Microsoft’s first desktop PC. Similar to the iMac, this desktop will be an all-in-one device.  © YouTube Talking about the design, the PC has a sleek aluminum body with 28 inch screen on top of a stand. In fact, Microsoft also displayed a new accessory called the Surface dial – this device augments computer mice and gives users a precise way to zoom into images and perform other actions as well. The display is touch sensitive and can be worked on with both your hands and a stylus well. There is also a ‘zero gravity’ hinge in the stand that allows you to position screen at an angle so that you can write and draw on it. In fact, it is this amalgamation of pen, touch and Dial that makes working on the illustrations fun and interesting.  The Surface Studio starts at $2,999 (around Rs 3 Lakh) and will be shipped in limited quantities this holiday season with broader availability in early 2017. In terms of specifications, the device is powered by the 6th Generation Intel Core processors that are accelerated by NVIDIA GeForce GPU for great performance and power. It offers 2TB storage, 32 GB RAM and 2.1 virtual surround speakers. It comes with four USB 3.0 ports, a mini display port, one SD card slot and an Ethernet port. This device is said to be compatible with the Surface Pro and Surface Book. According to Microsoft, this desktop has the thinnest ever LCD monitor with a 28-inch display that has 13.5 million pixels and a 4.5K ultra-HD screen. The monitor has a feature known as ‘true scale’ that helps the users preview designs in their real-world size. Do you think Microsoft is trying to remind us of how cool they are? Well, if that’s the case, we think their purpose is served, to some extent.

Donald Trumps Hollywood Walk Of Fame Star Destroyed With A Sledgehammer

From multiple attempts to deface it and offensive scribbles drawn all over it, and a wall built around it by a performance artist, to a controversial spray-paint job (someone had drawn a backward swastika on the star)—Donald Trump’s Hollywood Walk of Fame Star has been through a lot. But, someone decided that they've had enough of the controversial Presidential candidate, and finally took a vicious stab at the star.   © Twitter In an exclusive, Deadline.com reported that a man disguised as a construction worker attacked the star yesterday in Hollywood, taking to the sidewalk, first with a sledgehammer and then a pickaxe! The man repeatedly smashed the star, using the axe to pick apart the letters in Trump’s name. No one came to the star’s rescue (obviously)—as pedestrians recorded the man on their phones, with one man even picking up one of the letters as a souvenir. Tragic! © Dominic Patten_Deadline

Latest Apple Leak Confirms An All Glass iPhone And They Have Ditched The Home Button Entirely

Apple has been sticking to its guns by consistently following the same design for the past two generations. We already know that the next iPhone will be an exciting prospect and will have a major overhaul in terms of design but it seems like Apple will be exceeding our expectations.  The Apple iPhone 7 is kind of similar to the iPhone 6s and we can assume it was intentional. However, Apple is planning to release a brand new design in 2017, and reports indicate that the next iPhone will have not two but three different models. We don’t know whether it will be called the iPhone 8 or it will be called something else, but be prepared to be surprised. © Veniamin Geskin The phone is rumoured to come in three different sizes i.e. with 4.7-inch, 5-inch and 5.5-inch displays. The phone is expected to have the front entirely made of glass as well as the back, where a metal frame will hold it together. Nikkei, one of the most reliable sources for Apple leaks, suggest that the phone will have glass faces designed by Biel and Lens. It is important to note that the last time Apple used an all-glass unibody, it was on the iPhone 4s. © Veniamin Geskin “Apple has tentatively decided that all the 5.5-inch, 5-inch and 4.7-inch models will have glass backs, departing from metal casings adopted by current iPhones, and Biel and Lens are likely to be providing all the glass backs for the new iPhones next year,” an anonymous source told Nikkei. Nikkei also elaborates that the 5.5-inch model will sport a curved AMOLED screen. This rumour has been floating around the internet since August. However, they also reiterate that the two other models will sport LCD screens like the current iPhone 7. Apple is also expected to remove the home button and will introduce wireless charging, which is a first for any iPhone since its inception. Wireless Charging has been a regular feature on premium Android phones and it Apple wants to catch up with the competition.  Source: Nikkei

LinkedIn India Plans To Create Opportunities Where Getting A Degree From IIT Shouldnt Matter At All

Whether you are a fresher, a recruiter or a working professional with a good amount of experience; LinkedIn is one platform that almost every individual is aware of and has taken help from at least once in their career. After all, it isn’t called the world’s largest professional network for nothing. Since LinkedIn paved its way in India in the year 2009, the company has grown remarkably here, making it the second largest market outside the US. It seems that even LinkedIn understands the potential of the Indian market and is trying to push for larger growth by introducing interesting initiatives.  © Flickr Discussing the budding opportunities in India, Akshay Kothari, LinkedIn India head and Chief Product Officer, said in an exclusive interview with Quartz, “we wanted to figure out a way to level the playing field and provide a democratized opportunity in a way where it shouldn’t matter if you went to the IITs or you went to some college that nobody’s heard of.” Well, we couldn’t agree more since in India, even today, a lot of students are concerned about the college name more than they are focused on the course they want to enroll in. Akshay further added, “What we also noticed was that in most colleges there were at least a couple of people who were quite brilliant. They were self-learned, and, regardless of the college and the location, they had figured out a way to be strong in their fields.”  © flickr/Harsha K R Akshay further emphasized on the fact that India produces nearly 8 to 10 million graduates every year with 1.5 million being engineers alone, but out of those, there are many who aren’t aware of the job opportunities available in metropolitan cities like Delhi and Bengaluru, especially the ones who are in tier II and III towns. What's more, there are several companies who don’t go to these places to hire and hand pick students. They only do so from a few “elite”colleges. So, LinkedIn is kind of trying to become a catalyst for those intelligent students who might be missing out on great opportunities.   When asked about the ever growing competition coming from other job portals, Akshay stated that they don’t call themselves a job hub; they are rather here to help individuals find the best opportunity and hone the skills of the employees. Considering India is a strategic point and one of the fastest growing markets, LinkedIn launched three major products in September – a job platform for fresh engineering graduates, a service pack for startups and a ‘lite’ version of its website that can work even on slow internet speed.  Source: Quartz India

Railways Has Blocked Porn Sites At Patna Railway Station After Reports Of Free Wi-Fi Being Misused

Sorry guys, this has really happened. For those who were ecstatic about free Wi-Fi at railways stations, there’s bad news. The Railways has blocked porn sites for Wi-Fi users at Patna Railway Station. Sometime back, RailTel conducted a survey about Wi-Fi usage on railway stations and Patna railway station had topped the list with maximum searches on porn.  © Thinkstock/Getty Images East Central Railway (ECR) CPRO Arvind Rajak, while talking about the reason behind the blocking of porn sites, said that free Wi-Fi was being provided to commuters to help them access train timings and schedules mostly. “Unfortunately, the facility was being used for some ‘other’ purposes,” he said.  © Wikimedia Patna Railways Station, which was the first station in Bihar to get free Wi-Fi, sees tremendous footfall and is one of the most crowded stations in the country. No wonder the Railways was so prompt in banning porn sites at the station.  Indian Railways plans to provide free Wi-Fi to around 400 railway stations around the country. And now that porn sites are being banned at stations, we guess the Wi-Fi usage won’t exceed limits anyway.  H-t – ET Telecom

Xiaomi is all set to launch its uber cool Android phablet called the Mi Mix and this bezel-less screen smartphone is nothing short of a marvel for the tech market. The phone’s design is innovative, captivating and something that was, till now, only in our dreams as a concept.

The rear camera is 16 MP. Just in case you are wondering where the sensors and earpiece go, it looks like it kind of disappeared. Don’t be too surprised, the firm has designed a piezoelectric ceramic driver that converts the electrical signals into mechanical energy which eliminates the need for an earpiece altogether. The resolution of the phone is 2040x1080 pixels which is pretty impressive. The concept smartphone has been designed by world-renowned designer, Philippe Starck. Looking at the other features, it has a full ceramic body i.e. back cover, frame and side buttons, 8 MoHs hardness. It has replaced the traditional infrared proc sensor and instead included an ultrasonic proximity sensor hidden behind the display. It is powered by a 2.35 GHz Snapdragon 821 processor and comes with 4GB LPDDR4 RAM, 128 GB storage and a massive battery of 4400 mAh.   The phone is priced at an affordable amount i.e. $ 516 which is Rs. 34, 500 approx. The phone also has an 18k gold version that comes with double the storage and an added 2GB RAM (6GB) and is priced at $590 (Rs. 39,500 approx). The specifications and the overall design of the phone sounds extremely interesting, but only time will tell how Xiaomi plans to pitch this concept smartphone globally.

Let Your Muscles Recover If You Want To Get Bigger And Stronger

You can work out all you want. You can even pull two sessions a day but if you aren’t resting enough, forget about getting big and getting stronger. To grow stronger and to get bigger, muscles need time to recover. Simply put, muscles go through a shock during workouts and you need to rest to let them recover. After all, you don’t get stronger while working out. You get stronger when you recover well from your workouts. Lack of sleep, poor nutrition, dehydration, overtraining and stressful lifestyle is some of the key reasons for lack of recovery in most individuals. This will not only lead to muscle wasting but can also lead to overeating, poor performance, prolonged muscle fatigue and injuries in some cases. Following factors are important in the written order for optimal recovery: 1) Sleep, Rest Days And Active Rest Days © Thinkstock Sleep is the most important factor in recovery. An athlete will need anywhere between 7 to 9 hours of sleep depending upon their age, genetics and lifestyle. Try to incorporate some rest and active rest days in your workout routine. Rest and active rest day requirement will vary from individual to individual but it is crucial even for pro athletes. Active rest means not training hard and including light jogging or stretching to get the blood flowing for better recovery.  2) Nutrition  And Hydration © Thinkstock Proper Hydration, especially post workout, plays a significant role in an athlete’s recovery.  Hydration post workout helps repair damaged muscles, digest vital nutrients, reduce soreness and recover hearth rate.   Good nutrition is required to avoid deficiencies of vital nutrients which help in recovery. Try to keep a balanced diet which includes a lot of dark and leafy vegetables, protein, healthy fats; include some dark fruits and limit sugar, starch and packaged food items.

Daughter Gets Her Deceased Fathers 50-Year-Old Heartwarming Bottled Message

In the absolutely-amazing, faith-in-humanity-restored category news we have a news item which is like a pleasant surprise. A stranger traveled all the way across the country to return a bottled message to a daughter that was put out to sea by her father 50 years ago…yes yes! You heard it right … 5 decades ago. So, Paul Tsiatsios (now deceased) wrote a note and dropped it in the Atlantic in the 1960s near the Beachcomber Motel in Hampton, which he used to own in New Hampshire along with his wife Tina and here is what the note inside the bottle said, “Return to 419 Ocean Blvd and receive a reward of $150 from Tina, owner of the Beachcomber.” Tina who is Paul’s daughter received a stranger at her door-step named Clint Buffington of Utah. Clint had found a Coke bottle half-buried in the sand while he was vacationing in the Turks and Caicos and flew across the country to deliver the deceased father’s message to her daughter. What a beautiful gesture!

These Tips Will Help You Maintain Your Beard In Winters

Winters call for some very specific yet easy beard care routines. If you sport a full and a heavy lumberjack beard, winters can wear your look down. Therefore, a few simple steps can save you from the trouble. With our 24/7 busy routines we do take out time to pick up swanky pieces for our wardrobe but we skip some easy grooming routines that can last long. So, to keep your beard shiny and soft, here are a few tips. 1. Avoid Washing In Hot Water © Pinterest We understand it is unbearable to bathe in cold water in winters but you need to understand the fact that if the water is too hot, it will wash off all the natural oils from your beard, making it dry and rendering you skin flaky. Hot water also makes your beard weak and brittle. Hence, we recommend taking cooler showers. Also, if you need to take a hot shower, make it quick. Before the shower, running a comb through your beard would be a great idea. 2. Prefer Conditioners Over Shampoo © Pinterest Just like over usage of hot water, overuse of shampoo can also harm your beard. It again strips of the hair of its natural oils and makes it weak, which may lead to bald patches and weakening of its roots. Instead, you can use conditioners to keep your beard clean and keep your beard hydrated. A mild shampoo used with a conditioner afterwards will make your beard softer and shinier.  3. Use Beard Oils © Snapdeal Yes, you read us correct. Beard oils are specifically meant for your beard which keeps it soft and reduces itchiness caused by dandruff and dry skin. With a number of beard oils just a click away, pick up oils rich in jojoba, argan, hemp seed, almond and coconut. All these ingredients are beneficial for skin and hair.   4. Trim And Comb It Regularly © Pinterest We understand this is the most underrated suggestion we might be making but trimming your beard regularly is of great help. Trimming your beard immediately after you shower is something we strongly recommend as your hair is soft and manageable. Also do not use a regular comb on your beard, hunt for a boar hair comb to sort your beard out.

Apple Leaks New MacBook Pictures Which Show A New Touch Strip andamp A Fingerprint Reader

Apple is expected to announce the new and redesigned version of the Macbook Pro at their event on Thursday and it seems like they may have let a few images of the new laptop slip out. Macrumors, a website dedicated to everything Apple spotted these images embedded with yesterday’s macOS Sierra update. The images show a brand new MacBook Pro which sports a touch panel right about the keyboard and even a fingerprint reader.  © Macrumors These images indicate that the Macbook Pro will be narrower than previous models and will have similar bezels around the keyboard and the screen. Apart from these major differences, the MacBook looks, more or less, the same.  However, one key highlight of these images is the presence of the touch strip and how it will be used. The images clearly give us an idea that the touch strip will display nothing when the computer is off however when it is in use, it will display colours, symbols and buttons.  © 9to5Mac In one of these pictures it also shows the fingerprint reader being used for Apple Pay. The arrow in the pictures is pointing towards the right corner where the fingerprint reader is situated. There were also icons inside the macOS which show that it can be used to unlock the laptop and also authenticate applications with Touch ID. Source: Macrumors

WWEs Sheamus Talks To Us About The Brogue Kick And Being A Really Chill Guy

WWE’s Sheamus was in India from the 20th to the 22nd of October 2016 as part of the WWE Talent Tour and we got a chance to catch up with the Celtic Warrior and ask him a few questions that are on every WWE fan’s mind. MensXP: Tell us about the Brogue Kick—the move and the name.  Sheamus: My moves have evolved over years and are something I have worked on. You’ve got to find moves that suit you. I have discarded moves in the past that don’t work for me but the Brogue kick along with a few other signature moves have become a huge part of my repertoire. © Edelman MXP: Do you get any time for yourself with your gruelling schedule? If yes, what do you use it for? S: I am constantly travelling, I travel almost 4-5 days a week which makes it very difficult for me to get any time for myself. But whenever I do get time for myself I like reading books or watching movies and just relaxing. MXP: Think you can win the WWE Tag Team Championship with Cesaro? S: We both need to be on the same page first. There is quite a big clash of egos and we need to overcome that to be able to be on the same page. I have never been a tag team champion and I’m looking seize the title. I am willing to work with him to overcome our clashes and become a stronger team to be able to win the title but it depends on whether he will do the same or just let his ego come in the way. © Edelman MXP: Something about you the WWE fans don’t know…  S: I’m actually just a really cool, chill guy who’s fun to be around. I’m really funny and life is always a party. MXP: Your experience playing an iconic character like Rocksteady…  S: Acting has been so much fun and TMNT was great. It was well received and is still being well received after it came out on DVD. I’d love to do some more acting, it’s just that my schedule at WWE is too hectic right now to be able to. Playing Rocksteady was an amazing experience. I interacted with some great people. The crew and cast were really amazing and I got to learn so much from them. It was quite challenging and I love challenging experiences. © Edelman MXP: Can we expect the Celtic warrior to be WWE Universal Champion anytime soon? S: I have become WWE World Heavyweight champion four times. For me right now it’s more about finishing my collection with the WWE Tag Team Championship title and the WWE Intercontinental Championship. Then maybe I’ll consider the WWE World Championship again. But right now I’m focusing more on completing my collection and if Cesaro becomes organized there will only be one left. But hopefully before I visit India the next time I’ll be a WWE Universal Champion. Here’s wishing the Irish superstar all the best in the future.
