If You're Overweight, Stop Blaming Your 'Genetics' Or 'Hormones' & Start Doing The Hard Work

If you think this is another post that is going to give you a 'not-my-fault' card and blame carbs, hormones, sugar, junk, insulin, etc. for you being overweight, pay twice the amount of attention. Let me first put out the most important fact on the table. Who do you think is responsible for you being fat? YOU. Nothing and no one else. So firstly, stop with the blame game.  You may still be thinking that "no, it is the hormones. I eat healthy all the time. How can it be?" Read through and you will realize how it is still you. The very basic of weight loss or weight gain is calorie balance. Eat more and expend less, you gain weight. Eat less and expend more, you lose weight. As simple as that. So the ONLY rule to lose weight is to burn more calories and eat fewer calories. Simply put, 'Eat less move more.' So, how do you figure that you are getting fat even if though you are eating healthy? 1. You Indulge In Mindless Eating Humans have evolved with survival instincts and this survival has one main food instinct which says 'see food, eat food.' I am not lying. You can try this experiment yourself. In your working space, fill a bowl up with chocolates and keep it someplace where people often visit, ideally by the printer or the water dispenser. © Unsplash Now check the same bowl towards the end of the day. There is a good chance that there would be little to no chocolates in there. Then, ask your co-workers casually what have they eaten all day. Almost nobody will mention chocolates on that list. Not that they want to lie to you, their brain simply does not register the food they eat subconsciously. The same translates to portion sizes and eating while not paying attention. Look at the computer screen or TV while eating and you might as well finish off an entire pizza, as your brain does not respond to the fullness signal as your attention is elsewhere. 2. Under-Reporting & Over-Estimation There is research which shows that people who keep food journals are terrible at reporting their food intakes and even worse at estimating their energy expenditure. © Unsplash A 1992 study showed that people under-reported food intake by 47% and over-reported energy expenditure by 51%. Considering that you eat as per the normal food guidelines and do around an hour of activity per day, your intake would come to around 2200 kcals and expenditure would be 400 kcals. But as per the study, the same example above meant people reported that they ate around 1200 kcals and had an expenditure of around 800 kcals. That is a huge margin of error and now you can see where you might be going wrong too. 3. Cheat Days Do Not Count This is usually the norm that even though you may be eating well or mindfully during the week, every weekend ends up being a deserved cheat day. © Unsplash Firstly, if you are dieting in the first place and you are above the normal range of body fat%, i.e. 10 to 15%, nothing about your cheat day is 'deserved'. And more often than not, these unaccounted cheat days are a shit ton of calories down your throat that needs to be stored somewhere. They are not going to magically disappear into thin air. So, the next time you think that it is the hormones making you fat, always remember this: It is ALWAYS you!   Author Bio: Pratik Thakkar is the co-founder and director of GetSetGo Fitness, an online fitness company and the founder of Mars Nutrition, a nutrition supplement company.

China Conducts Maximum Executions In The World & It's 10 Times Higher Than Saudi Arabia's Count

Death penalty -- that is what a government-sanctioned killing of a person is known as. And the grievous process of taking a person's life is known as execution. This isn't a topic most of us would want to read about on any given day. We're sure you have much better things to do than dwell on this, much like the rest of us. © Getty Images Yet, here we are writing about it, and if you're still here, hang on for a little longer because things are about to get interesting now. Recently, we came across a report on world's top executioners and the data literally forced us to pen this piece. For the longest time Saudi Arabia has been the most infamous for its executions that doesn't spare any human life guilty in the eyes of the law in the state. Turns out we were mistaken big time. Not only does Saudi Arabia doesn't conduct most number of executions, but it also doesn't stand at number 2 one the list. © Getty Images According to an Amnesty International report, revealed that China is after all the world's top executioner by far! Over thousands of people were put to death last year in the country even when the accurate figures are still not known and remain a state secret. Saudi Arabia on the other hand holds the third spot on the list after Iran, which is second in line with its number of execution lying at over 253 executions in 2018. Saudi Arabia on the other hand conducted 149 executions last year. © Statista Who would have thought one of Asia's fastest growing economies is also a leading country in carrying out the most number of executions! FYI, executions in China are mostly enforced for murder and drug trafficking, and are carried out by lethal injection or gun shot. *Jitters*

6 Simple Yet Crucial Steps To Follow If You're Looking To Get Jacked Like Cristiano Ronaldo

Ronaldo has the best physique among his counterparts in the sport and is one of the best athletes in the world. His day begins with a team practice session that lasts for about 3-4 hours, which includes football drills, HIIT drills, sprinting and weight training exercises. Ronaldo trains in the gym for 4 days/week. His lifting routine primarily focuses on enhancing strength, speed and a little bit of hypertrophy. This type of training is extremely beneficial for athletes. © Reuters Here are six tips that can help you in getting a body similar to that of the Juventus star: 1) Focus On Nutrition: For your body to look jacked, you need to get rid of excess body fat. To get rid of it, get into a state of calorie deficit. A calorie deficit is when you consume fewer calories than is required to maintain your current body weight. Lower body fat is required to showcase your muscles. For most guys, this is 7 to 10% body fat. © Unsplash 2) Pick A Sport: Sports can really help you to in staying active. Pick any sport whichever you like and enjoy it 2-3 times per week.  3) Lift Weights: Weight training is the base to look jacked like Ronaldo. Weight training has various benefits like improving your concentration, building muscle, burning fat, improved sex life, less risk of injury, etc. Hit the gym 3-4 days in a week and be consistent with it. Incorporate compound movements and isolation movements. Learn the motor-skill pattern to build your core strength. © Unsplash Full body movements like the squat, the bench press, the deadlift or the overhead press engage and train your core. Implement big movements properly in your training plan so that you can lift heavy overtime and gain a good amount of muscle.  4) Cardio- Doing some cardio will not hurt your gains if you take care of your nutrition. Cardio can help you to condition your physique, however, cardio can also be a problem if you do too much of it. You can do any form of cardio like HIIT (high-intensity interval training) or LISS (low-intensity steady state). 5) Sleep- Your body will never show signs of improvement if your sleep pattern is not on point. What do I mean by this? You need to get at least 6-7 hours of deep sleep. A good range is 7-8+ hrs for better recovery outcomes. Some might require more than 8 due to their genetics and stress.  If you are not able to get at least 6 hours then you might face sleep deprival effects. 6) Supplements- Supplements can really help you fill the gaps. You don't have to take a ton of it and especially not bullshit ones like BCAAs, fat burners, testosterone booster, etc. In fact, I would suggest you take the effective ones like: 1) Whey Protein- Whey protein is more of a convenience food which can help you to fulfil your protein gap. Mostly required by vegetarians and vegans who find difficult to complete their protein intake per day. © Reuters 2) Creatine- Creatine can help you to look fuller overall. It also helps you to increase strength and lean body mass. 3-5g/day intake is sufficient. 3) Caffeine- Caffeine is a stimulant which can help you boost your mood before any intensive work. It boosts your performance in the gym and helps you do more work in a short time. A couple of shots of black coffee will do the magic. To achieve Ronaldo's physique you have to be consistent, disciplined and dedicated. Author Bio: Yashovardhan Singh is an online fitness coach with www.getsetgo.fitness, an online fitness platform.

Doesn't IPL 2019 Remind People Of Drama-Laden 'Saas-Bahu' Serials & Terrible Reality Shows?

“Oh, did you watch MS Dhoni enter the field last night to challenge the umpires?” “Oh! Oh! Ashwin 'mankaded' Ben Stokes and now, his English teammate, James Anderson shredded Ashwin's photo! OMG!” “Sunil Narine had evil plans to 'mankad' Virat Kohli but our hero was too smart for him.” C'mon @circleofcricket, that was such a cheap idea 4 likes 'n cmmnts. Change ur handle name 2 KillerOfCricket.
NO #SunilNarine didn't try 4 a mankad. It was @imVkohli over reacting 'n being dramatic on d field 4 that. Love that some Narine give back to Kohlið#IPL @IPL #KKRvRCB pic.twitter.com/wL5QTuYl57 — Shan Kamarudheen (@ShanKamarudheen) April 19, 2019 *Sigh* With the kind of drama and plot twists the twelfth season of the Indian Premier League is producing, we might as well start calling the daily matches “episodes” of a cringey but superhit Indian soap opera that literally millions of people watch on a regular basis.  Along with all the lights, the music, the dancing, leagues like these are most definitely making the sport a lot more exciting and with the T20 format taking over the world life wildfire, cricket has never been more popular amongst the younger generations. But, maybe that's not enough. They want people to talk about controversies and rowdy behaviour by the players and disrespecting the officials like highschool bullies. I was alive when I saw Dhoni angry. #RRvCSK pic.twitter.com/ZCawlEqqKA — Akash Jain (@akash207) April 11, 2019 The battles of “he said, she said” do not help either. Well respected men of cricket, people like Harsha Bhogle and Shane Warne are fighting on Twitter over something like Ashwin's 'mankading' just to add a tinch of masala to the piping hot mess this season is turning out to be. Harsha you are missing the point completely & I'm disappointed in you as you  always push the spirit of the game - now you condone this behaviour ? Ashwin's actions were simply disgraceful, and I hope the BCCI doesn't condone this sort of behaviour in the #IPL ! #spiritofthegame https://t.co/BsIKDBN51X — Shane Warne (@ShaneWarne) March 25, 2019 The point is that IPL is famous, yes. Cricketing fans from all over the world are glued to their smartphones and televisions to watch the four-hour-long matches on weekdays and double the amount on the weekends. The viewership and continued to grow through the years thanks to channels like Star Sports 1 Tamil and Jalsha Movies providing match commentary in the regional languages and the male-female contribution in the exponentially growing views has remained consistent, according to a report shared by the Broadcast Audience Research Council of India.  In other words, business is good and that should be enough, right? So, what is the need to add such controversies and disputes to the sport?

RDJ Talks About His Favourite 'Avengers: Endgame' Theory & We're Sure Paul Rudd Doesn't Like It

Theories may come and theories may go, but this one goes on forever.  Ever since 'Avengers: Infinity War' came out last year, all Marvel fans have spent all their time watching and rewatching everything from Marvel, trying to find out clues and form theories for 'Avengers: Endgame'. Some seem spot on, some are too big to reach, and then some theories are so ridiculous, they become so iconic they even reach back to the cast and the directors.  If 'Ant-Man going up Thanos' ass and expanding' didn't immediately come to your mind, I'm sorry but you're not a true Marvel fan.  This is the theory that has formed a life of its own and has probably haunted Paul Rudd, and Josh Brolin, of course, for months. The theory is so simple yet so complicated, so ridiculous but ridiculous enough to actually work. And, we're not the only ones advocating for Ant-Man to go inside Thanos; turns out, even Robert Downey Jr is a fan.  While doing press for the biggest Marvel movie yet, two of the OG Avengers - Jeremy Renner and RDJ - talked about all the crazy fan theories. Jeremy kept it professional and said, “I just love the creativity that comes from theories. They're hilarious, they're pretty crazy… but it means people are invested in the stories.” RDJ, on the other hand, was just being, well, RDJ. He would obviously bring up the viral theory. He said, “My favorite [fan theory] is Ant-Man goes up Thanos' butt and then makes himself big. And that's exactly what happens.” Robert Downey Jr talks about his favorite #AvengersEndgame theories...

ð ð pic.twitter.com/BExlNXFUjM — EB Games Australia (@EBGamesAus) April 15, 2019 Well, the Russo Brothers were already on board with this theory and now that they have RDJ's support, it can only mean one thing - Thanos better watch his back...and his butt.  I wish I could say this was photoshopped but the Russo brothers really did that pic.twitter.com/U7zW1fYznN — mila â¡ (@voiidmarvel) March 29, 2019 Paul Rudd right now, probably!

Here's Why Doing One-Muscle-A-Day Workouts Like Your Gym Guru Is Complete Madness

If you go to a gym and decide to get your exercise plan from a beefy-looking bodybuilder, there is a good chance your training split looks like this: Monday – Chest Tuesday – Back Wednesday – Off Thursday – Legs Friday – Shoulders & Abs Saturday – Biceps & Triceps Sunday – Off On the surface, nothing looks wrong here and it looks balanced as well. Because you are hitting every body part once per week. There is no overlap between muscle groups and you won't be fatigued. Also, there is no fear of 'over-training' as well. © Unsplash In fact, it looks like the perfect training programs that are given in bodybuilding magazines by your favourite bodybuilders like Phil Heath, Jeremy Buendia, or Kai Greene. If it is something that pros follow and it works for them, it will work for me too. Right? Umm... WRONG! The athletes that you see on stage are on bodybuilding drugs or anabolic steroids. On those drugs, you build muscle better, recover faster and get a great physique even with a shitty training split. © Unsplash Their muscle protein synthesis aka MPS, the mechanism through which your body builds muscle, stays elevated for days after training.  But that's not you. If you are a natural lifter, the one-body-part-once-a-week means missed opportunities for gains. A study by Dr Stu Phillips found that after resistance training, MPS spiked to 65% above baseline after 24 hours, was elevated to 34% above baseline at 48 hours and then came back to normal. If you want to gain maximal muscle, your MPS levels need to be elevated as much as possible. If you hit one body part once a week, it will have the growth stimulus for 2-3 days and then nothing will happen. Another study from JSCR concluded that when the same weekly sets were matched, the group that trained the muscle 1x a week only gained 62% of the strength to those who trained the muscle 3x a week. © Unsplash To simplify it, if you do 12 sets of a muscle in one session, you will compromise your strength gains compared to doing 4 sets in 3 sessions. So, as a natural lifter, a frequency of 2-3x per week is a much better option for you if you want to get jacked. And for those bodybuilders you follow, you know what makes them grow muscle. So, Where To Start? If you want to graduate from the bro-split, a good start would be a basic Upper-Lower split. It would look something like this: Monday – Upper body (strength focused) Tuesday – Lower body (strength focused) Wednesday – Off Thursday – Upper body (hypertrophy focused) Friday – Off Saturday – Lower body (hypertrophy focused) Sunday – Off Start doing this and stop training like a bro and compromising your results.  Author bio: Pratik Thakkar is the co-founder and director of GetSetGo Fitness, an online fitness company and the founder of Mars Nutrition, a nutrition supplement company.

Two Women Cricketers Celebrate Love By Getting Married But Homophobia Instantly Takes Over

One of the leading ladies of international cricket and Kiwi superstar Hayley Jensen and her fellow athlete from Down Under, Nicola Hancock decided to make their cricketing partnership last a lifetime, as the couple tie the knot last weekend. Having been teammates for two straight seasons for Australia's Big Bash League franchise, Melbourne Stars, the couple saw a lot of individual success in the T20 league. While Jensen, an all-rounder, won the prestigious Una Paisley medal for being Victoria Women's Premier Cricket league's best player of the 2017-18 season, Hancock finished the latest season of the BBL as her squad's second-highest wicket-taker with 13 scalps in 14 games with an average of 19.92. The official news of the wedding was broken online by Hancock's team last evening: From #TeamGreen, congratulations to Stars bowler Nicola Hancock who married her partner Hayley Jensen last weekend! ðpic.twitter.com/QvWb7Ue0Qx — Melbourne Stars (@StarsBBL) April 18, 2019 "From #TeamGreen, congratulations to Stars bowler Nicola Hancock who married her partner Hayley Jensen last weekend!" the picture was captioned. Australia legalised same-sex marriage in December 2017 while New Zealand granted it the royal assent way back in 2013. However, as soon as the wedding pictures were available online, homophobia took over with the blink of an eye and flooded the team's twitter handle with slurs demeaning same-sex marriage: It isn't ryt — NITESH KUMAR (@nkojha9060) April 19, 2019 Challenge to Natural law — Kapil Kumar (@KapilKu03594795) April 19, 2019 Oh no
It is unnatural marrige
I think human is very beg animals — बà¥à¤°à¥à¤à¤à¤¾à¤° मà¥à¥à¤®à¥à¤®à¤¿à¤² फारà¥à¤à¥ (@MuzzammilFar) April 19, 2019 What a great indecent choice this sodomy women make to defile themselves — Joshua (@Joshua3059) April 18, 2019 If all girls will marry to each other then what will happen with boys or u can say who will marry with boys. I think this is unnatural. — kmljee (@kmljee) April 18, 2019 Pls  stop these kind of activities this is uncertain and not good for the society — JSP Tarak (@TDPTARAK) April 19, 2019 Cricket is meant to be a gentleman's game,, what happened to the world??????? — Samiullah Saifi (@Samiull91563821) April 18, 2019 One common response to such homophobia is that it is the part of the society and that homosexual people have to be mentally strong enough to make such a decision and face the society with their heads held high, but why? Maybe that is the question that needs to be answered now. With the LGBTQ community being welcomed into society with open arms, why is it that marriage, a gesture to celebrate love, needs for the people involved to “prepare themselves”? Do straight couples need to worry about the kind of criticism that they might face from society after they get married? Sure, homosexuality has become a part of the world that we live in and sure people now have the right to identify themselves as “gay”, but normalising it, in our mundane lives, is something that continues to be our "to-do” list

In The New 'Shell On Challenge', Teens Eat Banana Peels & Food Wrappers Making It A Health Hazard

The internet is truly a bizarre place and we say that because threes a race to one-up that bizarreness, everyday with new and upcoming trends on social media. The new trends that follow are weird and strange challenges, which take over the social domain like a hot piece of chocolate. Some are rather dangerous and the rest just strange. We've been on the receiving end of a lot of challenges that have come and gone. From the Kiki challenge to the tide-pod challenge, everything has been tried and tested, even in India and now we have a new challenge doing the rounds, which can be dangerous but it's a quite senseless TBH. (c)Twitter The 'Shell On Challenge' is going viral right now and taking the internet by storm as we speak. It basically involves teenagers challenging each other to eat the food along with its packaging, whether it's natural food or processed. Sounds strange right? Well, it really is! (c)Reddit Videos have emerged on the Internet where kids have taken the challenge a bit too seriously and have eaten banana's with their peels intact, lemon zest, egg shells, candy wrappers and plastic packaging on food for fun. I mean it may seem fun to these kids but it can be quite dangerous if what they're consuming is plain plastic! y'all eat banana with the shell on or off?? pic.twitter.com/y2X6uTWwEF — emily jane (@emilyjanefrank) 14 April 2019 A kid in the US, who is a student in high school tried to follow up with this challenge by biting off a packet containing carrots, in order to ingest the 'shell' or the plastic it was wrapped in. The video of him doing the same caught on and has now gone viral. 'Shell on' challenge is the latest dangerous Snapchat trend among teens https://t.co/MtNA8NhLCT pic.twitter.com/9vmQMcnI85 — New York Post (@nypost) 17 April 2019 He also made a statement saying “It just looks funny, because it's not really a shell but people are calling things shells. I guess that is what's funny about it,”  People from all over the world have reacted to the challenge and most of them aren't really amused by it as it's clearly the worst possible way to have fun! I think eating food with “the shell on” could be the next big college sport. Gonna start scouting for talent. — Jon Berger (@bergerbomb44) 17 April 2019 I wondered why Boomers judged GenZ until I saw a thread about the “shell on challenge”

After 12 videos of high schoolers eating bananas with the peel on... I can finally say I relate to the Boomers. — Devin Spinks (@devin1096) 13 April 2019 If they are that stupid then perhaps they deserve it. — Ester Evans (@EsterEvansie) 17 April 2019 Lack of parenting and needing attention is turning our country into fucking morons! Social media and the hope for instant fame doesn't help either! — Mike (@mikelawrence813) 17 April 2019 Kids are so fucking stupid nowadays. — ro-co (@roco4033) 17 April 2019 So the next time you see a kid around you eating a banana or a pineapple with its 'shell' intact, don't freak out. Just maybe tell them there are far better ways to have fun than slip in to and be part of stranger things.

CRPF Thanks Amitabh Bachchan, Aamir Khan & Ranbir Kapoor For Paying Tribute To Pulwama Martyrs

On February 14, when most people were celebrating the day of love i.e. Valentine's Day with their respective partners, some families were weeping and mourning the death of their loved ones, who were in the Central Reserve Police Force.  The nation has not forgotten their death and never will, and in order to salute their courage and bravery our Bollywood actors recently took out time to pay tribute to the martyrs. AP In memory of the bravehearts, actors Amitabh Bachchan, Aamir Khan and Ranbir Kapoor recently paid a soulful tribute, called 'Tu Desh Mera'. The official Twitter account of CRPF posted their BTS pictures on social media and thanked them for their tribute.  CRPF wrote, "Commendable work has been done by @SrBachchan, @aamir_khan and #RanbirKapoor for the tribute song #TuDeshMera dedicated to the Martyrs of Pulwama.

6 Smart Tips To Not Look Sweaty In Pictures During Peak Summer

Summer months can be terribly agonising especially when the humidity hits. From destroying hair that you freshly set in the morning as soon as you step out to sweaty patches in your pits, things can be a little hard to manage.   One such problem that no one talks about is greasy skin and especially in pictures. Think going to parties after dressing up except all your pictures turn out greasy. So here's how you deal with greasy skin: Here's the thing, your forehead and T-zone could use a little less of oil production and to minimise that, you should do the following: 1. Commit To Matte Products © Getty Images Sometimes, the necessary process of moisturising can cause you to sweat profusely. If the product is too dense, heavy, and oily, it's going to aggravate your already greasy situation. Thus, a lightweight, fast-absorbing moisturizer will allow your pores to breathe more easily.  2. Switching To A Face Oil Also Helps © Getty Images The trick to nixing oily skin is applying more oil. The oil that you apply absorbs quickly and leaves your skin oil-free because it registers the oily levels of the skin as sufficient so it is in fact counterproductive. 3. Add A Toner To Your Routine © Getty Images Ingredients like witch hazel reduce oil production in the skin without drying it out. However, stay away from alcohol-based astringents, they are counter reactive.  5. Keep Face Wipes Handy Oil builds throughout the day but you obviously can't wash your face all the time. That's why it's helpful to stock up on refreshing, skin-toning face wipes that absorb excess oil while rejuvenating the face at the same time. 6. Remember To Buy Yourself An Oil-Controlling Cleanser © Getty Images Control the everpresent oil production with an oil controlling cleanser. Other cleansers won't do you justice. Heavy-hitting ingredients like salicylic acid remove excess face oil, clean and shrink pores, and minimize shine for the rest of the day.  7. A Weekly Mud Mask Is A Move That Everyone Forgets © Getty Images It only takes10 minutes, but these ten minutes of hassle can possibly be the fastest way to remove oil production.  The clay in the mask will soak all impurities from the pores, preventing breakouts.  Don't do it more than once a week or your skin might turn dry.

For The Love Of God, Please Stop Wishing Your Christian Friends A 'Happy Good Friday'

It's that time of the year again when I go through my ritual of sending out PSAs to my non-Christian brethren to not go around wishing people a 'Happy Good Friday' and give high-fives saying “Yeah! Good Friday wala long weekend! Whooo!” The sad part is that despite my numerous attempts, through the years, there are always those select handful of morons who manage to fill my Whatsapp chats and social media feeds with a “Hey Marina, Happy Good Friday. Have a good one.” I can't even… via GIPHY Honestly, the mind just reels at the stupidity! What does it take for these people to get it? So, this year, I am taking my PSA responsibilities to the next level and am writing this article, to inform all you wonderful people, that walking around wishing Christians a 'Happy Good Friday' is probably the rudest and most disrespectful thing you could ever do. Now, I firmly believe that no one is doing this intentionally. Because if you ARE doing that, then my friend, the Lord save you. But I do believe that's it's clearly a simple matter of lack of information, which is making people say so. I mean, I get it. It has the word 'good' in it, so naturally, it's something to be celebrated, right? Sorry guys, but no. It, in fact, is one of the most solemn and sorrowful days for the Christian community across the globe. © Icon Productions Good Friday commemorates the day Jesus Christ was crucified to death in the most brutal way imaginable. The Bible says that Jesus was mercilessly beaten up, tortured and then made to carry his own cross on which he was crucified. Watch 'The Passion of Christ' to get a better idea. Yes, what's so 'good' about this entire thing, right? Clearly 'Sad Friday' would have been more apt. But there is a reason for Christ's suffering being labelled as 'good'. Now, I don't want to go into the whole logistics where the Oxford English Dictionary states that 'good' in this particular context, refers to “a day or season observed as Holy by the Church.” Instead, I want to show you the bigger picture and the deeper meaning behind Good Friday. We Christians firmly believe that Christ sacrificed himself to show his love for mankind. On Good Friday, we remember, according to 1 John 1:10, the day Jesus willingly died as the ultimate sacrifice for our sins. His suffering and inhuman death, as extremely terrible as it was, was God's incredible plan to save all mankind, even though he had to sacrifice his one and only son. © Icon Productions I imagine if I was there that day Jesus died, I would have probably agreed with most of you lot and questioned what was so good about that day. All hope was lost, Satan was clearly having a party and evil had triumphed. But a few days later, something happened that turned the tables around. Good Friday is followed by Easter, the glorious day Jesus rose from the dead, marking his victory over sin and showing a future full of promise and forgiveness, for all those who believed in him. As terrible as the day was, Good Friday paved the way for mankind's salvation, which is marked as 'good' by us Christians. We humans are not capable of erasing all our sins and guilt, but Christ did the unimaginable and died for us. © Reuters Most Christians around the world spend the day in prayer and fasting and confessing their sins, as they prepare for the Easter celebrations. So there you go, I really, really, really hope I have successfully made you guys understand the meaning and the significance of this day. And here's hoping I don't see any 'Happy Good Friday' messages on my feed anymore!

The Marvel Cast Loves Brie Larson & Captain Marvel While All The Dudebros Hate On Her

Ever since 'Captain Marvel' was announced and Brie Larson took on the role of the strongest Avenger, she's received way too much hate. If hardcore Marvel fans actually don't prefer her in the role of the superhero, that is still understandable, but most of the trolling she faced was mainly from sexist dudebros who personally had a vendetta against Brie or were just too intimidated by a badass female superhero. Whatever that case may be, I feel like she has been judged very unfairly by a lot of people. But, guess what? That doesn't matter that much because the entire Marvel cast has welcomed her into the Avengers family with open arms and couldn't be more happy with her or the character of Captain Marvel. This press tour has already given us so many iconic moments of everyone together, probably for the last time, joking around and having the time of their lives. It also gave us so many great moments of Brie with all her costars.  RDJ loves her.  robert downey jr being the biggest brie larson's supporter out there pic.twitter.com/V6UwvAgs1V — baru âï¸ (@ironjarvs) April 15, 2019 RDJ is a Captain Marvel stan, pass it on.

Looking For The Right Fitness Coach For Yourself? Keep These 5 Crucial Things In Mind

Due to the popularization of the fitness industry, thousands of fitness coaches are available right now and their demand is on the peak. Right from the 'not to be taken seriously' ones who teach you hacks to lose face fat and belly fat in 7 days to those who speak actual facts and back their practice with the latest evidence, you will find every type of trainer out there.  © Unsplash The problem is that a lot of people fall easily for the quick hacks and sorcery-promising ones and do not really pay attention to the latter. That is unless they screw their happiness and waste their money on the quick fix ones and then go to the evidence-based practitioners. If you are looking to work with a professional for your fitness goals, here are a few qualities they should have: 1. Professionalism © Unsplash Like I mentioned, if you are looking to work with a professional, that is what they have to be. A professional. That means they should clearly communicate with the client what can be expected in the coaching, their timelines, what do they expect from the client, their coaching style, their communication channels and turnaround times. Along with that, what results the client can expect from the program and what are the things they would be required to do. 2. Ethical A coach who is trying to sell you a particular supplement or a fishy product under their sponsorship agenda or asks you to take certain drugs saying that you absolutely need it to get good results, are NOT the best lot to help you out. A coach should only 'suggest' supplements as it is not their role to make recommendations or ask you to buy things. They should suggest stating the benefits only and keep the decision-making power totally in your hands. Drugs, should not even come up in a conversation with your trainer.  3. Should Walk The Talk If your coach is obese, does not train regularly, does not eat well, seems like they themselves need a coach and are not the best person to be a coach to someone. By walk the talk, it does not mean they should be ripped and flash abs year round but should be what is considered fit and have a supporting lifestyle. If they don't, you will never be inspired to go an extra mile forward for them to get better or take them seriously in the first place. 4. Creates Plans Individualized For You © Unsplash If someone takes your money under the premise of coaching and ends up sending you some template files or cookie cutter programs, they are selling you templates and not coaching. Coaching, on the other hand, means that the coach in question takes information from you regarding your goals, your lifestyle, your current nutrition, training, sleep habits and then creates a plan suited for your lifestyle and goals. It is YOUR plan. Not the one that is a one-size-fits-all plan. 5. Transparency & Education A coach should not just tell you what to do and ask you to follow him blindly. A coach should be able to give you a satisfactory explanation as to 'why' a particular thing or a plan has been set for you and how it would benefit you. Along with that, the coach should equip you with the necessary information and education so that you can be independent after a few months to take charge of your own fitness. © Unsplash Yes, there still might be situations where you would still be with them. Be it a contest prep or a powerlifting meet or a sports event. But those are special instances or situations where someone keeping an eye on your progress and planning does help. But, if just staying in shape means you being with a coach and taking his coaching for a lifetime, that coach is making you a handicap and not helping you out in reality.

Despite Agonising Pain, Soldier Crawls Past Marathon Finish Line To Honour Fallen Comrades

The world-renowned Boston Marathon has been one of the greatest tests of a man's physical capabilities, endurance and unshaken devotion. Throughout the years, the event has been home to some of the most memorable moments in the history of the United States of America, some good and some rather unfortunate, such as the 2013 bombings. A celebration of just 'being able', the Boston Marathon is more of a festival than a race. For Micah Herndon, a US Marine, however, it meant a lot more than all of that. The Ohio-born soldier was running the distance in honour of three of his comrades who lost their lives while serving their nation in Afghanistan. “I run in honour of them,” Herndon told the Record-Courier. “They are not here anymore. I am here, and I am able. I am lucky to still have all my limbs. I can still be active. I find fuel in the simple idea that I can run. Some can not.” However, the Marine's tribute for his fallen brothers in arms turned out to be a lot more difficult than he had ever imagined. After running for a little over 42 km and the finishing line in his sight, Herndon's legs suddenly locked up, ending up in him collapsing on the road. Going through immense pain, he was unable to stand on his feet. "Both my legs locked up, the worst pain I've ever experienced running,” Herndon said. As the medical team approached him, he refused to seek help, not until he cleared the finish line, all by himself, and he did. How badly do you want it? #BostonMarathon pic.twitter.com/EYo7liqM5Q — Dana Giordano (@dana_gio6) April 15, 2019 Crawling on his hands and knees, Herndon finally made it to the end of the marathon before immediately being assisted with a wheelchair and rushed to the hospital. "The mindset of a Marine, you finish it by yourself,” he said. The soldier also spoke about what kept him motivated throughout his ordeal. He said that whenever he felt like giving up, he just remembered his comrades' faces and names, which gave him the strength to carry on. Herndon also engraved the names of the fallen on the shoes that he wore for the run as a gesture of respect. After serving his time in Afghanistan, Herndon says that running helps him deal with his Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). "One way for me to deal with everything is to get in my own zone, my own headspace, and just go,” he said. “I will have setbacks in my life. I will go backwards, but it's how you respond going forward.”

Not Varun Or Alia, It's The CGI-Ed Bull From 'Kalank' That Was The Best Actor In The Film

There are some movies that are bad and then there is 'Kalank', which is so bad that people only love to troll it. 'Kalank' is one of those movies that could have just been a trailer or a short film. The story was so predictable and almost everything was given away in the trailer itself. But, people still went to watch it and we guess the only reason was to come back and make these hilarious memes.  © dharma productions However, out of all the performances of Alia Bhatt, Varun Dhawan, Aditya Roy Kapoor or Madhuri Dixit, it is the performance of the CGI-Ed bull that was loved by people. Although the makers put a disclaimer mentioning that no animals were harmed while filming the bullfight scene, why wasn't there any disclaimer stating "Watch it at your own risk because the CGI is bad"?  © dharma productions We guess KJo loves bullfights, or maybe he wanted to take inspiration from 'Baahubali: The Conclusion'. Also, FYI, Karan Johar's Dharma Productions is the same production house that produced 'Baahubali: The Conclusion'. © arka media works Seriously what is this obsession with showing a character's strength by making them fight a bull? First it was Bhallaladeva, now it's Varun Dhawan's Zafar. But, just look at the difference between the CGI effects and VFX in both the movies.  Looks like internet can't seem to get over Varun's struggle with the fake bull and have turned that particular scene into a meme.  Pic 1: Expectation
Pic 2: Reality#KalankReview pic.twitter.com/gQey2wYZHM — Satyam Singh (@MyFreakyTweets) April 17, 2019 Read that Kalank has a Varun Dhawan-bull fighting scene. Guessing it will be authentic, considering how people poked fun at Kangana Ranaut's mechanical horse scene in Manikarnika. — Chowkidar Pallavi Kamat ð¸ð¶ (@Pallavisms) April 17, 2019 @akashbanerjee is silent on Varun Dhawan's fantastically fake bullriding skills now.

Looks Like The Best Part Of 'Kalank' Is Not The Movie Itself But The Hilarious Memes On It

Looks like the audience cannot get enough of being 'tabaah ho gaye' after watching and experiencing the magnum opus of this year, 'Kalank'. The Alia Bhatt-Varun Dhawan starrer movie is a tale of pain and love set amidst the backdrop of the pre-partition era and while many expectations have been shattered in a day, the memes cannot stop pouring on our social media feeds. Audience after watching Kalank. #KalankReview pic.twitter.com/FxGps5Bb2y — Sagar (@sagarcasm) April 17, 2019 Audience in theatre: #KalankReview pic.twitter.com/cdD93CUqEv — Bwoy Bakchod (@bwoybakchod) April 17, 2019 People are claiming they tried hard to find something they can actually like about the movie but alas, they couldn't.

After Two Days, Samsung's Foldable Smartphones Are Already Breaking & It's Being Called Fold Gate

Samsung announced one of the most iconic smartphones in the company history back in February and was the first to show off a foldable smartphone. The company has managed to produce the smartphone at a scale and is now ready to be sold in various regions, Huawei showed off their version of a foldable smartphone as well that also touted a unique and exciting design.  Samsung has already started to send out review devices to journalists and there have been numerous reports about the $2000 dollar smartphone breaking after a single day of use. The Galaxy Fold has been suffering a broken screen sometimes due to user error or due to low durability.  The first report comes from Dieter Bohn at The Verge where he had a piece of debris under the Galaxy Fold display. It was pressing up against the back of the display and caused a bump in the OLED panel. The debris managed to press against the display enough to break it and killed some vertical and horizontal rows of pixels.  © Twitter/Steve Kovach For Steve Kovach of CNBC, the device's display broke right along the fold crease and the pixels in the folding area were dead. This kind of confirmed that the crease in the middle may cause an issue as the display broke right along the crease.  © Twitter The Galaxy Fold also comes with a layer on the display that resembles some sort of protective glass. The layer is not supposed to be removed; however, some of the reviewers were not known of the case. Mark Gurman from Bloomberg removed the layer of the display file saying, The phone comes with this protective layer/film. Samsung says you are not supposed to remove it. I removed it, not knowing you're not supposed to (consumers won't know either). It appeared removable in the left corner, so I took it off. I believe this contributed to the problem." The removal of the film totally killed the smartphone as the left half of the display died.  © Twitter/MKBD YouTuber Marques Brownlee also peeled off the protective layer and said "the display spazzed and blacked out. Started over with a replacement.” After one day of use... pic.twitter.com/VjDlJI45C9 — Steve Kovach (@stevekovach) April 17, 2019 Folding smartphones is a brand new concept for smartphones and it is bound to see some hiccups before becoming mainstream. Samsung is the only company right now that has managed to make foldable smartphones real then masses. The Galaxy Fold is definitely for first-generation early adopters as we will see some improvements in design in the near future. As of now, Galaxy Fold is already sold out when it comes to pre-orders and has "overwhelming demand”.

'GOT' Season 8 Premiere Was Pirated Over 54 Million Times In 24 Hours & Most Views Came From India

Game of Thrones season 8 premiere was the show's most-watched episode ever. That's right, it was watched by a record 17.4 million viewers when it aired. But you know what? That number could have been much higher if more people would have watched it, you know, legally. According to a digital-piracy analytics company Muso, the “Winterfell” episode was pirated 54 million times globally in just 24 hours. The pirated views easily dwarfs the legal views that came on the day it was aired. Of course, the number will likely go up in the coming days as more people start watching it, but so will the pirated views. © HBO MUSO's data also shows that the most pirated views came from India. Roughly 10 million views out of the estimated 54 million came from India. MUSO speculates that the piracy in India was higher due to the difficulty of accessing the show there. China, on the other hand, airs a censored version of the show, so 5 million pirated views came from there too. United States, despite having the easiest access to the show via HBO, came third in charts with close to 4 million illegal views. So yes, it looks like people are not ready to pay to watch 'Game of Thrones' after all. Anyway, the next episode of 'Game of Thrones' season 8 airs Monday, April 22 at 6.30 AM on Hotstar in India. So, you still have some time to catch up if you haven't already.

Shots Fired: Pragyan Ojha Calls Bias Against Hyderabad Cricketers As Rayudu Dropped From WC Team

To quote one of the most questioned players to make it to the final Indian roster for the upcoming ICC World Cup 2019 in Dinesh Karthik, “There will always be someone who will miss out. That's the nature of the game…”, and surely enough, with the total number of slots at 15 and over 25 supremely talented players competing for them, it is bound to happen that some players would miss out on the opportunity to represent their country in the biggest cricketing tournament there is.  One of the best (or worst?) examples of such a case is that of the 21-year-old wicket-keeper-batsman, Rishabh Pant, who missed out on the opportunity to a veteran like Karthik, who's considered to bring greater stability and consistency to the already talent-laden squad.  On the other hand is the curious case of the 33-year-old Ambati Rayudu who initially was brought up to the team as a batting all-rounder who'd fit perfectly in the two-down spot for the Men in Blue. However, with his questionable bowling action being rejected by the International Cricket Council (ICC) and he batting form spiralling, the Guntur born had to be removed from the final team ahead of the World Cup. Unable to take the news like a good sportsman that he is, Rayudu took a sly shot at the selectors and the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) by tweeting this:  Just Ordered a new set of 3d glasses to watch the world cup ðð.. — Ambati Rayudu (@RayuduAmbati) April 16, 2019 Losing his spot to Vijay Shankar, who made his ODI debut just a couple of months ago in January, Rayudu said that he's just ordered a pair of 3-D glasses to watch the World Cup. This was in reference to team selector MSK Prasad, who'd called Shankar a three-dimensional player. Responding to the tweet in support was yet another Indian cricketer who was put on the spot by the ICC for an objectionable bowling action and had to revamp the very essential part of his game, Pragyan Ojha. Curious case of some Hyderabadi cricketers... been in a similar situation... understand the winkâð¼ https://t.co/zLtAQIMvYn — Pragyan Prayas Ojha (@pragyanojha) April 16, 2019 “Curious case of some Hyderabadi cricketers... been in a similar situation... understand the wink”, tweeted the former Indian cricketer. Taking his own example after having missed out on the opportunity to play for his country in the 2015 World Cup, Ojha pointed out that being dropped from the team ahead of crucial games is evident for “some Hyderabadi cricketers”.  However, his dig at the selectors did not sit well with the fans of Indian cricket:  Isn't that why u were supporting him the day before selections? I hAvE gRoWn Up WiTh HiM. Pot calling Kettle black. Instead of whining over selections & talking nonsense filth to divide fans, support the ones who are selected, doesn't matter from which part of India they are from — Saurabh (@imsgshinde2) April 16, 2019 Aur ye Pragyan behati Ganga me haath dhote huye. — Ghenchebaaz (@MVBisht) April 16, 2019 Don't bring state into play.... He was given enough opportunity to perform. Though feel bad for him, but the call was justified on the back of past performance. — Gareeb Joker (@badoombaa) April 16, 2019 You wer dropd frm d team whn ther wer better spinners in d country. If it's a case of Hyderabadi cricketer, thn Laxman and Azruddin wouldnt hav played around 100 tests. Skill matters bhai which many others hav more than u guys. Raydu doesn't deserve a place in India A team also. — dryogeshpatel (@dryogiap) April 17, 2019 Hey Mr. Ojha, don't pull cricket into regional colors! — à¤à¥à¤à¥à¤¦à¤¾à¤° Aciditic Indian ð®ð³ ð®ð³ (@Aciditic_Indian) April 16, 2019

'PM Narendra Modi' Trailer Is Missing From YouTube & We Can Already Hear Vivek Oberoi's Fans Cry

A few days ago, technically one day before Vivek Oberoi's movie 'PM Narendra Modi' was going to release, the Election Commission put a ban on the film until the Lok Sabha elections are over. According to the order issued by the EC, "any Biopic material in nature of biography sub serving the purpose of any political entity or any individual entity connected to it, which has the potential to disturb level-playing field during the election, should not be displayed in Electronic media including cinematograph during the operation of Model Code of Conduct." © Instagram Fast forward to the present time and the trailer of the film, which is an "inspiring saga of a man, a politician, a leader and a visionary", has gone missing from YouTube.  The movie was already drowning in a pool of controversy thanks to the ban and memes, and now the disappearance of the trailer took away the last straw from the makers of the film.  View this post on Instagram Jai Hind ð®ð³ð We humbly ask for your prayers and blessings on this incredible journey. #AkhandBharat #PMNarendraModi A post shared by Vivek Oberoi (@vivekoberoi) on Jan 7, 2019 at 5:59am PST No matter how much people joke about the trailer or Vivek Oberoi's looks and performance, but a trailer or any video for that matter going off YouTube is a major blow and we don't how the cast and the crew of the film is going to deal with this new development.   View this post on Instagram Thank you to each and every one of you for your blessings, love and support. Thank you to the Indian Judiciary. We hope you like the film and that it inspires you all! #PMNarendraModi ð Jai Hind ð®ð³ @omungkumar @officialsandipssingh @oberoi_suresh @anandpandit @tseries.official A post shared by Vivek Oberoi (@vivekoberoi) on Apr 5, 2019 at 7:15am PDT Apparently, not just YouTube, the official trailer has been removed from most other platforms as well. All it shows is, "The video is unavailable." According to reports, this move might be related to the order of EC.  View this post on Instagram 2 days to go! Thursday 11th April! #PMNarendraModi A post shared by Vivek Oberoi (@vivekoberoi) on Apr 9, 2019 at 12:51am PDT So, in case you missed out on the trailer, looks like you won't be able to see it on the internet anytime soon. Directed by Omung Kumar and produced by Sandip Singh, 'PM Narendra Modi' was initially supposed to release on April 11, but has now been pushed for a later date.

As TikTok Disappears From Google & Apple Stores These Weird AF Videos Prove Why It's For The Best

The very popular, albeit annoying to the level of self-destruction, Chinese video making application TikTok has been finally taken down from Google and Apple app stores in India. The (awesome) news comes after the Madras High Court prohibited its downloads on 3rd April. Now, following the direction of the Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology, the app has been temporarily banned in the country. © Twitter The popular app which was actively used by millions of Indians to create short videos was said to contain “inappropriate content”, in a petition filed by senior advocate S Muthukumar. He further stated that children using the app were vulnerable to potential paedophiles using the application, and sought an immediate ban on the use of TikTok. © Justdial While there is strong merit in those allegations, we must recall that Indonesia also temporarily blocked TikTok last year, saying that it contained pornography and blasphemous content. Perhaps it is really time for TikTok to take a step back and think about regulating its content and privacy/security details. View this post on Instagram Comments how that vedio you like or not ???

While some can be genuinely fun to look at (only once in a while), most other videos are pure torture to the beholder.

Madhuri Dixit Singing 'Tabah Hogaye' Explains The Audience's Reaction After Watching 'Kalank'

Karan Johar's magnum opus ' Kalank' opened today and while the movie looked like a beautiful, aesthetic (but heavily inspired from Sanjay Leela Bhansali's works) watch, the majority of the reaction from the audience today has been quite 'meh'. Kalank review  -
story - fully bakwas,
screenplay - dull,
music - routine
Overall not worth watching @karanjohar â­ star... — Pooja singh (@filmireviewji) April 15, 2019 #Kalank Review : Headache Guranteed.. So instead of buying popcorn.. Buy Amrutanjan or Zandu Balm.. Hackneyed Plot.. Worse acting.. @aliaa08  Constipated... @MadhuriDixit Old Haggered... @duttsanjay Buffoon... @Varun_dvn only Body No Soul... @sonakshisinha Khaaaaamoooosshhhhhhhhh — Ganesh Mahesh (@NamoIn2019) April 16, 2019 Many are upset that the narrative was a concept stolen from SLB's style and reworked in a weird manner with a good star cast. #KalankReview :
They tried to imitate #SLB's scale and vision and believe me they were spot on visualy but where's the writing man?.Screenplay lethargic and drowsy , waited eagerly for an engaging moment but not a single engrossing pal , while same old formula to sell .(1/2) . — Rahul verma (@RahulVerma4860) April 17, 2019 Words for #Kalank #KalankReview

Kalank is a Perfect Example that High BUDGET, Multi Starcast, Massive Sets and Wide Release will nvr ensure Success, if your FILM LACK SOUL
Kalank = GOLDEN OPPORTUNITY WASTED

A few people loved it for the cinematography and the plot, while for others, watching the beautiful Madhuri Dixit on screen was reason enough. Jus saw #Kalank at d screening in  presence of the cast. One more reason to watch it is for @MadhuriDixit
And the grace she brings to celluloid. Her scene with @duttsanjay
N @Varun_dvn is epic. The bollywood masala movie buffs will love it #kalankreview pic.twitter.com/zoSwUDhjB0 — KARAN SINGH CHHABRA (@karan_chhabra) April 16, 2019 Jus saw #Kalank with d cast. Loved it for 1. The grandeur 2. The dialogues and story 3. The way actors of such stature hav been presented 
Otherwise:
4. Length could hav been shorter
5. Songs could have been bettr

The bollywood masala movie buffs will love it #kalankreview pic.twitter.com/lZzmSj5Mug — KARAN SINGH CHHABRA (@karan_chhabra) April 16, 2019 Don't believe the negative reviews. Kalank is like Game of Thrones and Avengers Endgame. Please watch it in theaters ð#KalankReview — Varunardo DiCaprio (@Varunardo) April 17, 2019 Nevertheless, if a good cinematic view and watching your favourite stars are good enough reasons for you to watch 'Kalank', then you should catch it soon.

Russo Brothers & The Cast Of 'Endgame' Are Reminding People That Thanos Still Demands Their Silence

'Say no to spoilers' – it's not a hard concept to understand. But, some people have a hard time grasping this and they don't realize how much the spoilers of a movie or a TV show can affect someone, especially if they have been waiting for a really long time to watch it. The entire spoiler debate going on right now is obviously because of 'Avengers: Endgame' - only 9 days to go! - and I still can't believe there are some sadistic people who would spoil things for others.  There are so many loyal fans and followers of the Marvel Cinematic Universe who want to and who deserve to watch the biggest Marvel movie yet without any interference. But, it can get so out of hand that the Russo Brothers had to come out and release another PSA just to plead with people. #DontSpoilTheEndgame pic.twitter.com/YZhbrwcijJ — Russo Brothers (@Russo_Brothers) April 16, 2019 Yes, I hate the giant purple grape and his stupid narrow way of thinking, but for once we should listen to him when he demands our silence. Be a good person, don't make fans have meltdowns and keep the spoilers to yourself. Be like Cap. But not us #WhateveritTakes #DontSpoilTheEndgame pic.twitter.com/KDKxFxl2dM — Danna Sofía (@DSofi427) April 16, 2019 Be like Dr Strange. pic.twitter.com/gPfbjD4xw9 — Tommy (@TommyWitney) April 16, 2019 Good joke. when someone spoils endgame pic.twitter.com/0rzbhGQ0D5 — dustin (@asvpxdusty) April 16, 2019 This is probably why Spiderman was killed off in 'Infinity War'. :) pic.twitter.com/i7b1w3aIt2 — Iván Gutiérrez (@ivandecat05) April 16, 2019 While this letter is good, nothing can beat last year's PSA about spoilers for 'Avengers: Infinity War'.  I'm kind of sad we don't have Tom Holland with tape on his mouth this time. © Marvel

Indians Now Hold The World Record For Spending The Highest Amount Of Time On Social Media

As smartphones and mobile data have become both cheaper and faster, Indians have started chugging data like never before. From watching Netflix in public to churning out TikTok videos, there's an influx in internet usage in the past few years. Now according to McKinsey's latest report on Indian online trends, Indians are spending the highest amount of time on social media in the world. Yes, in the WORLD!  © McKinsey The report noted that Indians spend more time on social media than online users in China or the US. Apparently, Indians are spending about 17 hours per week on social media sites like Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and others. It's a world record, which we think, has been set due to access to affordable smartphones and cheap cellular data (read: Jio) . India is also just behind China when it comes to app downloads. As you can see in the report, over 12.3 billion smartphone apps have been downloaded by Indians in 2018. © Pexels After Indonesia, India is said to be digitizing faster than every other mature and emerging economy across 30 dimensions of digital adoption since 2014. McKinsey's report is extremely detailed, and it talks about a lot of other accomplishments of India in the digital space. Check out McKinsey's report right here.
