Here's Why Sansa Stark Getting The Iron Throne Will Be The Perfect Poetic Justice For 'GOT'

Yes, you read it right. Before you start speculating or wondering if I have a very narrow approach towards making a tall claim with this self-proclaimed yet logical thought, allow me to explain the aesthetics of this Bran Stark kind of vision my mind is having (including a few other people on the internet who seem to agree). Here's how one can draw the conclusion on the basis of what pivotal roles these main character might play in the remaining two episodes:
1. Arya Stark
As per Melissandre's prediction, a pair of green eyes awaits death at the hand of Arya Stark. Now everyone's obviously considering Cersei Lannister for this position, however, if you see, the mighty Khaleesi ALSO has green eyes. What if she indeed becomes the mad queen and is killed by Arya? Also Arya could secretly be working with Sansa and this could be their plan.
2. Jon Snow
Okay, the man has cheated death way too many times and he needs to die. He could possibly die while saving Dany from sister Arya and get killed as collateral damage and that will not only be a great twist to the story but serve the role of catharsis in the content cycle.
3. Tyrion
He will stay alive to carry on the Lannister legacy as the last remaining heir, maybe? Also if Sansa does get the throne, he could serve as her hand. Also there is an unsaid bond between the two anyway. HBO 4. Jamie and Cersei
The guy left the one woman who loved him at Winterfell and is back to save his true love. The poetic justice for his 'karma' would be dying at the hands of Cersei itself, I guess? HBO 5. Yara Greyjoy
Now she has to avenge the death of her brother and also take care of Euron.
6. Hound
A Cleganebowl is pending, so I guess he gets killed in there.
7. Varys
He already wants to dethrone Dany dearest and could secretly be plotting against her with Sansa. Okay, coming to how Sansa fits the bill and where she comes in the puzzle. Now she is a major character in the show and if the story line has not allowed her to kill any major person yet, that means she might hold to a crazy plot twist, right? What if she warned Cersei of Dany's arrival, is in tow with Varys and Arya (who is also not trusting the dragon queen at all) and wanted the dragon and the army to be caught off guard? This doesn't sound garish at all, right? What if when the war is over, she ultimately kills Cersei and in doing so, brings the story full circle with the fact that Ned Stark's daughter kills the evil woman. Now Cersei vs Dany on the throne is an obvious choice, Jon Snow on the throne will be very predictable and boring Arya doesn't want the throne. It leaves me believing the clever and the much respected Sansa Stark rules the throne with Arya serving as her chief of military and Tyrion as the hand.

Rakhi Sawant Won The Dadasaheb Phalke Award For The Best 'Item Dancer' But No One's Believing It

Yes, indeed, this happened. First things first, I have immense respect for the courage and the kind of boldness miss Sawant showcases when it comes to voicing some very strong opinions of hers. She gives two hoots about what one might think of her politically correct side because there isn't any and she speaks whatever is on her mind. So the much coveted Dadasaheb Phalke Foundation commended her with 'best item dancer' award in Bollywood but everyone is finding it hard to believe. We are not questioning her capacity to win an award but the title of the award itself. View this post on Instagram A post shared by Rakhi Sawant (@rakhisawant2511) on May 11, 2019 at 11:52am PDT Rakhi has performed on over 100 dance songs in her career and feels happy for winning this recognition. However, people on the internet cannot believe that this happened. Isn't this the same award that #HinaKhan won few years back..#DadasahebPhalkeFilmFoundationAwards
Kya baat hai #RakhiSawant ð¤£ð¤£ð¤£ pic.twitter.com/XCpAHEBwYU — RiA (@RiaRevealed) May 12, 2019 Aisa kaun award deta hai bhai ? ððððð pic.twitter.com/zAbFcrBcOF — Chowkidar Samir (@imsam6876) May 12, 2019 One of the reporters even questioned her if she bought the award and she replied that “Not at all. Hamari itni aukaat nai hai award ko purchase karein. The jury and the federation realised that Rakhi Sawant hasn't received an award since 12 years so I am very thankful to them. It gives us motivation when an artist is honored with an award. It makes us work harder.” Now sure Rakhi deserves an award but don't you think an 'item dancer' award is the wrong representation of her worth?

5 Badass Mothers Of Bollywood Who've Defied Stereotypes & Shown How Cool They Are

Bollywood has always tried to project the idea of a 'mother' in numerous ways. Earlier, she was portrayed as someone who would always have the martyr syndrome and would do anything to bring peace and love to her family.  While that's still the main character trait in most movies, mothers have now taken up a more evolutionary role in cinema. They've started defying stereotypes and have become more free-spirited and free-thinking for their family and themselves. (c)Eros International This is also a way to showcase the role of a woman in society and since cinema is the most malleable visual medium for people across the board, the significance of each character is viably important. Exceptionally so, if it's a woman who plays a vital role. (c)Viacom 18 Motion Pictures So, on Mother's Day, here are 5 mothers from Bollywood who're breaking stereotypes by actually being badass and cool at the same time: (1) Revathi- Margarita With A Straw (c)Viacom 18 Motion Pictures Revathi's performance was path-breaking when she played a mother to a child with Cerebral Palsy, whose daughter was struggling to express her sexuality. Definitely wasn't an easy role to play, for sure. (2) Sri Devi- English Vinglish (c)Eros International Shashi (Sri Devi), plays a very relatable character in this film who loves her family to bits and wants to do anything and everything possible to try and understand them. It is sometimes difficult to take care of everyone else's wishes while letting go of yours, but Sri Devi defied that characteristic and her role definitely speaks volumes. (3) Dolly Ahluwalia- Vicky Donor (c)Eros Entertainment Of course Vicky's whiskey-gulping, life-of-the-party Punjabi mom had to be on the list! As much as she loved emotionally blackmailing Vicky to get her way, as most moms do, she was also an embodiment of the perfect Punjabi Maa we most certainly know and want. (4) Tabu- Drishyam (c)Viacom 18 Motion Pictures Tabu plays a strong female character in the movie and we had to put her name on the list because she's a badass cop who spends the entire length of the film trying to avenge the death of her son and she does a good job of it. (5) Kirron Kher-Dostana (c) Yash Raj Films Our favourite paranoid Punjabi mom, who finally accepts and embraces the fact that her son was gay (even though he was just pretending)! We absolutely loved her character in the film. Indian mothers are the best, to be honest. They may be difficult to convince, emotionally woke and extremely sensitive with a dollop of paranoia and anger that can make her chappal throwing aim a game of perfection but at the end of the day, they know what you truly want and deserve and they'll go to any and every extent to make sure you have it.  So, this Mother's Day, maybe take inspiration from these 5 mothers and do something uber special for your own.

Here Are All The Behind-The-Scenes Videos Of 'Avengers: Endgame' Posted By The Entire Cast

Some people have stopped talking about 'Avengers: Endgame', but not us. It's been almost a week since the official spoiler ban was lifted by none other than the Russo Brothers and Chris Evans being just like his character, waited till then to share a lot of behind the scenes stuff from the biggest movie ever, unlike his fellow actors like Robert Downey Jr, Chris Pratt, and Elizabeth Olsen. Does that mean I can start posting set videos on Monday? https://t.co/X9c946pFW6 — Chris Evans (@ChrisEvans) May 2, 2019 Yes, the most responible one. Which is obviously WAY cooler than being the most handsome, funny, or talented. Take note, other Chrises. Losers. https://t.co/vG0JGheowM — Chris Evans (@ChrisEvans) May 3, 2019 So, I wanted to wait till Chris himself was done sharing a bunch of stuff from the sets of Endgame to compile a list of all of the BTS stuff, and here we go!

Umpire Who Broke A Door After Arguing With Virat Kohli Will Not Be Punished, But Is It Fair?

Season 12 of the Indian Premier League (IPL) will come to an end today when two of the most successful teams of the league, Mahendra Singh Dhoni's Chennai Super Kings and Rohit Sharma's Mumbai Indians will lock horns for either of their fourth championship, tonight.  However, while IPL 2019 will be remembered for the action-pact games on a nightly basis along with some of the most entertaining television commercials to promote them, it will also be remembered for something a lot more peculiar.  Ever since the beginning of the contest, the relationship between players and the umpires has only gotten worse. Some of the most infamous incidents included Indian captain Virat Kohli trying to barge inside the umpire's room, after a no-call cost Kohli and the Royal Challengers Bangalore a game against MI.  Then we had 'Captain Cool' losing his temper and march out of the dug-out and into the field to show his disagreement with the officials.  Things got out of hand, played were abused and looked down at and cricketers like Dhoni even had to pay half their match fee for “breaching the code of conduct”, which is great, by the way. It is important to maintain decorum, especially for a game like cricket that attracts millions of eyeballs, daily. The whole perspective changes when the heat comes from the other side of the altercation. Umpires and match referees are known for keeping their calm under crucial moments of the game and are expected to handle a situation with care if something seems to be getting out of hand.  However, when almost a week ago, when English umpire Nigel Llong was bombarded by Virat Kohli and Umesh Yadav with questions over the incorrect no-ball decision given by him, Llong's anger got the better of him and he ended up breaking a door of the M. Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bangalore. "It was an unfortunate incident. As a state association, we are writing to the COA today," Sudhakar Rao, Secretary, Karnataka State Cricket Association, told The Times of India.  Indeed, it was an unfortunate incident, but to let Llong go unscathed and without punishment for such a display of anger has to be an example of the Council's double standards. To add insult to injury, Nigel Llong is also the umpire who will be officiating the IPL final, later today.

The First Reviews Of 'John Wick 3' Are Calling It The Best Movie In The Franchise Yet

Everyone loves Keanu Reeves, the guy is just so amazing, and everyone loves him as John Wick ever since he took on the role in 2014 and avenged his dog. Now, the third movie in the franchise - 'John Wick: Chapter 3 - Parabellum' - is almost here, but some people have already watched it and it's no surprise that people are loving the movie. Ever since the first promo picture came out - Keanu Reeves with Halle Berry in a desert with two dogs - people have been so excited for the movie. And, concerned about the dogs, of course.  Welcome to the next chapter. #JohnWick3 pic.twitter.com/qtvXepVEvw — John Wick: Chapter 3 - Parabellum (@JohnWickMovie) December 19, 2018 People are also calling it the best movie in the franchise so far, and well, nothing builds the excitement more than that.  #JohnWick3 is an absolute blast and the best film of the @JohnWickMovie franchise so far

REVIEW: https://t.co/2fHZlkcn1Q pic.twitter.com/ZI8oocVzUn — UPROXX (@UPROXX) May 10, 2019 Some people disagree. On JOHN WICK: CHAPTER 3, which I think is a notch below the other two movies, but still a lot of fun. https://t.co/gXbqz1ugtL — Ignatiy Vishnevetsky (@vishnevetsky) May 10, 2019 Well. JOHN WICK: CHAPTER 3 is pretty fucking badass. Maybe the most violent studio movie since HOSTEL: PART II. The Boban fight scene RULES & I don't even know if that was one of the top 3 sequences. Loved Mark Dacascos, but everyone is good -- Halle, McShane, Lance, Fishburne, Huston. — Jeff Sneider (@TheInSneider) May 10, 2019 Now, that's cool. Migos finally have their track
“John Wick” featured on 
John Wick Chapter 3 pic.twitter.com/KxwHMsWSlT — MIGOS ð (@CultureTheAlbum) May 7, 2019 'Veheeery' good movie, apparently. OKAY. @VAMNit & I went to the premiere of John Wick 3 last night (or John 3 Wick, if you're the sign behind us)
It is veheeeery good. We loved it.
No spoilers, but ask me anything about the night, go pic.twitter.com/4LPvfeUaAV — Lin-Manuel Miranda (@Lin_Manuel) May 10, 2019 Yep. Within the first five minutes of CHAPTER 3, John Wick visits the Rose Main Reading Room of the Fifth Avenue New York Public Library, seven out of four stars, best film of the franchise — Jason Bailey (@jasondashbailey) May 10, 2019 Freaking awesome, guys! How is John Wick Chapter 3?! FREAKING AWESOME! Seriously GO SEE THIS! I didnt think they could top the last two in terms of action, but they DO! One scene in particular worth price of admission alone! Our NON-SPOILER Review! https://t.co/EQbxFdi8gg RT & Share Plz! pic.twitter.com/V9qxHVTtIL — Joe Vargas (@AngryJoeShow) May 10, 2019 Unrelated, but that little clip is everything.

I enjoyed John Wick 3 just fine--it's more John Wick--but I have to say I'm absolutely shocked that the RT rating is so overwhelmingly high. This movie DEFINITELY has more problems than a lot of critics are pointing out imo — Mike Rougeau (@RogueCheddar) May 11, 2019 That's good. John Wick 3 takes a page (and some actors) from The Raid in its relentless action and hard-hitting choreography. There's some plot wheel spinning that kept it from being perfect, but I just love this world and enjoy spending time in it. — Eric Vespe (@EricVespe) May 11, 2019 That's the tweet. #JohnWick Chapter 3 is the best movie ever. That's it, that's the whole tweet. — Brandon Katz (@Great_Katzby) May 10, 2019 Finally, please. I saw that they're handing out trading cards for Detective Pikachu. 

I hope for John Wick 3 they hand out guns. — Clipper Of Wings (@Exfatvirgin) May 11, 2019

9 Irresistible And Smart Hairstyles To Try Out This Summer To Score A Date

Styling your hair in the summer can be a tricky thing. You do not just have to keep it cool around the nape of your neck but also make sure you're not getting a nerdy look while you're at it. Besides, humidity is also a major concern in summers. So here's a guide to great summer hairstyles that you could use to show to your stylist next time you visit the salon. 1. The Fading Buzz Cut © Instagram The fading buzz cut is characterized by tapered sides with a short crop on top. This army-inspired buzz cut goes well with all kinds of face structures and especially works great with a well-groomed beard. 2. Low-Fade Spikes © Instagram A low-fade with a cropped (but slightly spiked) fringe is honestly great for the summer, since fades have been up and running for a long time. Plus, this hairstyle suits every hair type! 3. The Crop Top © Instagram Think Thomas Shelby from 'Peaky Blinders'; that's exactly what we're talking about. The crop top is a refined look and is understated yet contemporary. It involves a gradual fade on the side with focused short hair on the top-front. It is versatile and can achieve both clean and messy looks with wax.   4. A Faded Mess © Instagram For men with considerable volume on top, Kartik Aaryan can be your inspiration for getting a faded mess. The key is to play with texture on top and keep the sides short by opting for a fade, to make the cut look a lot more dramatic. 5. The Slick-Back Look © Instagram This look requires mid-length hair to give it a tamed mold. Wax or gel is a necessary tool to create this look: you can either direct it to the back or flip it to one side to give it a structured look.  This hairstyle blends well with an au naturel beard, a moustache or even a fresh clean-shaven look. 6. The Disconnected Crop © Instagram A hairstyle with a longer length at the top and a fade on the sides. The good thing about this hairstyle is that you can style it whichever way you fancy. You could go all neat for an office meeting or choose a dishevelled look for the after party. You cannot go wrong with this versatile hairstyle.  7. The Casual Dishevelled Look  © Instagram This look is for the low-maintenance guys who only prefer the rolled-out-of-bed look. Just keep a high-quality hairbrush and hairdryer handy. Before the big party, swipe the brush through your hair for a good look.  8. The Mad Men Look © Instagram A hairstyle inspired by the 'Mad Men', this elegant, clean look is a great choice for working professionals. This style is suitable for straight, fine hair but needs a little help of styling products.   9. The Bon Chic Look © Getty Images Inspired by Leonardo DiCaprio's legendary haircut in Titanic, the bon chic look is a classic style of the 90s that is back in force this year. We love this messy-tousled style for its casual yet playful look.

4 Stupid Reasons People Have For Using Steroids

Are steroids always bad? I do not think so. After all, 'Steroid' is a medical term. There could be many reasons when steroid usage is justified. For example, when prescribed by a doctor for certain conditions like TRT, HIV, burns etc. Another being their usage by pro-bodybuilders and athletes who are competing nationally or internationally and their livelihood depends on their physique. © Getty Images However, there are a few reasons for which the usage of steroids is completely not required. If you are using or planning to use steroids for any of these reasons, it is literally very stupid indeed:  1. To Become A Trainer: Being a trainer myself, who has been lifting naturally since 2010, I`ve met tens of trainers at different gyms. Initially, I used to get shocked learning about their steroid usage without even having a training base. Most of the time they are caught in this delusion that they need to look like a bodybuilder to be a trainer, which is not true at all. This makes them take anabolic steroids to get quick results. The same results which they could`ve gotten easily by training for a few more months with apt diet and training and that too without the side-effect of steroids. To become a trainer you need to have few years of lifting experience under your belt and some education. Having a decent healthy-looking physique is a plus point to motivate your clients but going for anabolics, thinking you need to look like a bodybuilder/physique model is completely uncalled for. Remember, your knowledge helps your clients get results, not your monstrously big physique. 2. To Impress The Opposite Sex: In today`s world of social media and tinder where shirtless pics get more likes, the sole aim of some youngsters for going to the gym is to get shredded/abs, post pics on social and get laid. This involves the usage of steroids and other drugs like clen and what not. The more desperate the guy is, the quicker he will get into shortcuts. © Getty Images Every second guy who is a gym-goer and is on Instagram has abs, but do they have girlfriends? Ask them and you will know. You may impress some juvenile teenage girls with your shredded physique but getting into a real relationship requires way more than just physique. It's you as a complete person that impresses the opposite sex, not your 3 hours everyday gym session. 3. On Trainers' Recommendations: If your trainer tries to brainwash you by saying “Every guy with a good physique is probably on steroids and you should take as well if you want those results”. He's either bullshitting you or probably has no idea himself. There are people with great physiques mostly due to two reasons- Great genes or years of training experience or a combination of both of these. These people with years of training experience will look better any day than your average guy/trainer who took steroids after just 6 months of training. Pro coaches make their pro-athletes use steroids for competition prep, that`s another story. But as an average gym-going guy who just wants to look good in clothes or naked, steroids are a big no due to their side-effects. 4. To Compete In Local Bodybuilding Competition: I don`t want to sound like I'm discouraging you to participate in local competitions but participating in such shows by using/abusing steroids is not worth it at all. © Getty Images Youngsters, usually with not much experience, try to compete in such shows and in order to win or secure good positions, go for steroids hoping to get massive or get a next-level shredded physique. Let me tell you, even after taking steroids they don`t get the desired results because steroids are not magic. They don`t have much training experience under their belt and have no idea about dieting and want steroids to do all the magic for them. Steroid usage could be justified in case you were preparing for a national or pro event after few years of dedicated training. But shutting your natural testosterone production for an event which gives you a tub of protein powder or gainer isn`t very smart. That`s all folks! Hope this helped. Share it if you can with a friend who goes to the gym and is in dire need of your help.

4 Reasons Why The Pixel 3a Is One Of The Best Android Smartphones One Can Buy Today

Google announced the Pixel 3a and 3a XL this week and if you are looking for an Android smartphone that delivers good performance, a phenomenal camera and not super expensive, it really ticks all the boxes right now. We've been using the phone for a while and simply fallen in love with the smartphone.  Pixel smartphones tend to have exclusive features that give it a few advantages over its counterparts. The Pixel 3a delivers computational photography at an unmatched level and offers a pure Android experience just like the Pixel 3. Here are some of the reasons why we love the Pixel 3a: Great Cameras © Akshay Bhalla_MensXP The Pixel 3a, in our opinion, takes some of the most incredible shots with its single camera sensor. It still takes pictures today that can outmatch almost every smartphone available today, even flagship level smartphones. For the first time, Google has proved that great cameras are not exclusive to flagship smartphones.  It comes with all the exclusive features you get on the Pixel 3 i.e. Night Sight, Super-Res Zoom, Top Shot, Photobooth, Playground and Google Lens built right into the camera app. Google also intruded a new time-lapse mode where you can set your frames to record at various intervals. This essentially will let you record a 20-minute video and condense the final video into 10 seconds. Here are a few camera samples from the Pixel 3a: The Best Android Experience  © Akshay Bhalla_MensXP Pixel devices have the cleanest stock experience you can find on an Android smartphone and also gets more regular updates. It comes with exclusive features that are not available on other devices such as computational photography, unlimited picture storage and overall smoother experience. The operating system has been fine-tuned according to its specifications and delivers an experience that not many phones can match. Other useful features such as Digital Wellbeing, Night Light and constant updates make this the best Android experience you can have on an affordable smartphone. It Has A 3.55mm Headphone Jack  © Akshay Bhalla_MensXP Flagship smartphones are now removing the headphone jack in favour of better water resistance however it does render your wired headphones useless. Many people; especially audiophiles still prefer to use wired headphones due to better audio quality. Pixel 3a comes with a headphone jack which makes me want to use my 1MORE Quad driver earphones even more. Overall, its a better experience when it comes to audio quality and Pixel 3a does a phenomenal job.  Night Sight  © Google Night Sight was one of our favourite features on the Pixel 3 and the same feature comes to Pixel 3a as well. If you love to go out at night like me, this will be the most important feature you want to be looking at. Basically, Google uses “computational photography” to enhance images taken in low-light environments. This will basically eliminate the need to use flash, as Google's algorithms spruce up the brightness, contrast and colour automatically. It takes multiple images and combines them together to give the best final picture that is social media ready.

Do you keep missing gym sessions due to lack of motivation? Do you find lame excuses to destroy your diet and screw your own fitness progress? Here, I am going to talk a little bit about human psychology and how you can kick the crutches of motivation and actually achieve the results you are looking for. Motivation is of two kinds: 1. Extrinsic Motivation - Motivation to act in a certain way due to external rewards such as money, fame, marks, and praise. E.g. – Losing fat so you can impress the girl that you like.  2. Intrinsic Motivation - Motivation to act in a certain way due to internal reasons. E.g. – Losing fat because you want to be fit and live longer. © Getty Images If you're losing fat because someone else wants it, you will lose motivation and go off-track soon. Apparently, our goal should be to shift our focus from Extrinsic Motivation to Intrinsic Motivation over time. This will give meaning to your goal! Okay, you get it now. But how to keep that motivation up, throughout? Let me tell you – even the topmost athletes lose motivation to stick to their Nutrition & Workout Plan sometimes. They're humans too. So what keeps them on the track? These things: 1. Structured Nutrition & Workout Plans: If you have a structured Nutrition & Workout plan outlined and customized according to your lifestyle, the chances of you going off-track reduce 10x. Do you know why? Because you look forward to the exercises and meals planned for the day. This makes you stick to the plan.  2. Meal Preparation For The Week:  In continuation of the previous point, the preparation of the majority of the meals of the week will make you stick to the routine and minimize decision fatigue. © Getty Images 3. Fitness As A Lifestyle: Make fitness, your workouts and eating accordingly, a part of your lifestyle. All of this should never be a burden to you. Instead, all of this should add meaning to your life.  4. Flexible & Realistic Plans:  If your plans are flexible, realistic and don't require you to eat salads all day, the chances of you to stick to your routine and keeping the motivated increase to a new level. You should indulge in your favourite foods moderately, whenever you want to. Summary – Stop waiting for Motivation to come and kiss your feet. Instead, create a routine that you can stick to and be disciplined.

EA's Apex Legends Is Finally Coming To Mobile & PUBG Mobile Has Something To Worry About

EA's new battle royale title became a breakaway gaming hit of this year. The game quickly became one of the top titles of 2019 by attracting over 50 million players in just a few months' time. Now, the company wants to bring it to mobile devices. Yes, it's finally happening. In its earnings call, EA noted that “it's in advanced negotiations to bring Apex Legends to China and to mobile.” Unfortunately, they don't have an ETA for the same, but we believe that it'll arrive sooner rather than later. After all, they'd want to continue the momentum of the game and attract some players to take on the likes of PUBG Mobile and Fortnite. © Respawn EA didn't confirm whether it's planning to bring the game to both Android or iOS, but we assume the game will arrive on both platforms. It is, however, worth pointing out that the game may arrive first on iOS before making its way to Android. Given the success of Fortnite and PUBG Mobile on mobile platforms, it only makes to sense bring the game to both platforms. © Respawn Anyway, let's hope Apex Legends doesn't end up becoming a new found addiction for mobile gamers. Seriously, the last thing we want to see is people getting arrested for playing games. But let's face it, PUBG Mobile is going to have some serious competition because a lot of playing ditched PUBG to play Apex Legends when it arrived on PC and consoles earlier this year.  Source: Gameinformer

Google Is Making Efforts To Help Disabled People And Make The World A More Inclusive Place

Google announced a bunch of new hardware and new software updates for products last night at its annual I/OI event in San Francisco. The search engine giant announced the Pixel 3a, The Nest Hub and upcoming Android Q features. Having said that, hardware products are refreshed each year and Google announced something more important than any average person would expect.  Google researched are working to train its already competent speech recognition system to understand people with speech impairments. It's a very basic thing nobody would have thought to explore via technology but Google is using Artificial Intelligence (AI) to achieve this feat. It's called Project Euphoria and we got to see a preview of what it can possibly do to help people with speech impairments.  © Google Having a family member who suffers from multiple sclerosis, Project Euphoria evoked an emotion that not many people can comprehend. Google is currently working with people who have neurological conditions including ALS or amyotrophic lateral sclerosis so that AI can better understand speech patterns. Even though it's in very early stages, we got to see how Project Euphoria can transcribe speech better to help people with speak impairment communicate.  © Google There are various ways for people to communicate, for example, transcribing is just one of the ways for someone to communicate. People can even use a keyboard to type out a response or even send commands via Google Assistant without ever speaking. This can be fired up with just a button that connects to Google Assistant.  © Google In order to improve speech recognition and prediction, Google is asking everyone from around the world to submit voice samples. This data will be used to improve algorithms that are used by the speech recognition software.  “Fundamental AI research which enables new products for people with disabilities is an important way we drive our mission forward,” said Google CEO Sundar Pichai onstage. “This will ultimately result in products that work better for all of us. It's the perfect example of what we mean by building a more helpful Google for everyone.” Why Is Project Euphoria Important? © Google Well for the simple reason that it will make the world a more inclusive place. The ability for people suffering from speech impairment to communicate with family members, friends and other people with similar diseases has far more social implications than you can imagine. Disabled people will be able to communicate emotions like laughter, despair, happiness, and even anger that was not possible earlier. It will also benefit people with hearing impairments as they can simply read the transcribed text for communication. This in turn not only makes the lives of disabled people easier, making it more inclusive. It makes people with speech and hearing impairments get more familiar with emotions, feel less conscious about communicating in public and above all else, express feelings that disabled people couldn't do effectively before.  To know more about Google's efforts and Project Euphoria, you can watch a short video below that will give you a better idea.

Here Are 5 Tips That Can Help In Avoiding Fat Gain During Ramzan

The month of Ramzan is when a lot of delicious food and delicacies are in an endless supply around you. There are no holds barred when it comes to different food choices that are available to you during this month, and it can get a little hard to stick to your diet. © Getty Images People who regularly go to the gym are caught in a dilemma. They keep asking themselves, 'Should I be sticking to my diet or should I go all out and get back on track after Eid?' How about finding a middle ground? You can almost always find a middle ground. Here are a few practical ways you can eat during Ramzan and not gain fat: 1. Set Your Goal As Maintenance And Not Fat Loss Or Muscle Gain Usually, one of the following two things happen during Ramzan: a. You gain weight hogging all the festive delicacies.  b. You lose weight as the long fasting hours and the heat kill the hunger. Your goal should be trying to maintain your weight, and you can go a step ahead and track your calorie intake with the help of an app. You roughly maintain your body weight consuming 14 to 16 calories per lb. of your body weight. Multiply your weight (in lbs.) by 15 and that's your maintenance calories. For example, a 150 lb. man would maintain weight at roughly 2250 kcals. 2. Pick Foods On How Your Appetite Acts If you get hungry easily, pick low-calorie foods like egg whites, lean cuts of meat, whey protein, fibrous veggies, fruits, potatoes, etc. If you struggle to consume the calories, pick calorie-dense foods like whole eggs, fatty cuts of chicken, whey protein, biryani, kheer, desserts, etc. 3. Eat Adequate Protein To maintain your weight and muscle, it is a good idea to consume 0.7 to 0.8g protein per lb. of body weight. For example, the 150 lb. dude would need to consume 105 to 120 grams of protein per day.  © Getty Images These foods can help with your daily protein intake - eggs, chicken, mutton, yoghurt, whey protein shakes, etc. 4. Try Not To Drop Your Calories Yeah, I know if you eat less and lose some weight, what would be the harm in that right? But the following things could happen if you eat fewer calories: a. You may be hungry through the day b. You may feel lethargic c. Your recovery may be compromised 5. Hydrate Yourself Even though the feeding window is extremely small, aim to get in at least 2.5 to 3 litres of water in your system, as it is essential for your system's functioning and you may be risking dehydration, as there is a good chance you may be dehydrated during the day. So. do this and ensure that you are in a good position to start putting in the work in the gym once the fasting days are over.

Billy Porter's Met Gala Outfit Included 6 Shirtless Men, An Elaborate Headpiece & A Plank

Billy Porter, the 'Pose' star has served us one look after the other this year. Starting with the Oscars where he wore a tuxedo gown, which was an iconic outfit, he's decided to keep up with his out-of-the-world outfits.  For the Met Gala this year, Billy Porter arrived on the red carpet dressed as an Egyptian winged pharaoh. The almost diva-like entrance was carried out by the six shirtless attendants who carried Billy Porter on a plank while strutting on the red carpet.  © Getty Images Imagine the grand entrance for a second. Wouldn't you want an entry like that? After entering, Porter unfurled the wings that spread out into a big spectacle.  © Getty Images Considering that the theme for the Met Gala was 'Camp', which was all about being out of this world and unnatural artifice, it looks like Billy Porter nailed it. © Getty Images Porter spoke to a leading publication and said “Camp means irreverence,”  he added, "Camp means as hugely over-the-top and grand and what some may feel is ridiculous and silly, and embracing all of those creative impulses inside us that very often are squelched.” he said. Take a look: © Getty Images The reason why this stands out is because it is so out of the ordinary and aligns with the theme, 'camp' perfectly.

Just Like The Starbucks Cup, Here Are 12 Mistakes In 'Game Of Thrones' Over The Years

HBO and 'Game of Thrones' actually made everyone's day yesterday when a single Starbucks cup appeared out of nowhere in a scene and became the most-talked-about cameo of the year.  © HBO But, obviously that's not the first mistake the show has made and it probably won't be the last (yes, I know only two episodes are left but I think HBO is capable of pulling that off). Yes, it's a huge show with more people working on it than you can count, little mistakes are bound to happen. But then again, we can look at it in a different way as well - so many people are working on this show, there should be an equal amount of people to just pay great attention to all the minute details.  Whatever the case may be, it's still funny to see stuff like this, so here's a bunch of hilarious accidents like the coffee cup or just straight up continuity errors:  1. Queen Of Wigs  © HBO How many different wigs does a Khaleesi need? At least two, apparently, in just one scene. Yes, a lot of elaborate braided hairstyles will probably be hard to keep constant, but it does kinda affect the continuity, especially to people who pay attention to everything. 2. Sansa Is A Targaryen For A Hot Second © HBO Back in the first season, the opening credits did show the Targaryen sigil right next to Sophie Turner's name. Well, Sansa was a Lannister at one point, and now she's also a Targaryen. 3. Daenaerys Was Also A Lannister And Not A Targaryen At One Point  © HBO Well, similar mistake, again. This time, it was the Lannister sigil that showed up next to Emilia Clarke's name. Well, looks like she should add another thing to her already essay-length name. 4. That One E-Mail Notification  Apparently, you can hear someone receiving an e-mail in the scene where Margaery Tyrell visits the orphanage back in Season three. I honestly couldn't hear anything even after putting my ear literally on my laptop's speaker. But, enough people have heard it so, it is a legit thing. 5. Where Is Catelyn Stark's Hand?  Kinda a minor little problem, but hey, it's still a mistake. 6. Melisandre's Necklace  © HBO In season six, it's revealed that Melisandre's necklace is this magical thing that works as an anti-ageing serum for her. As soon as the red woman removes it, she turns wrinkly and old. But, a lot of people recalled that the continuity error with it since she was seen at least once without her necklace while taking a bath. 7. Stannis' Charger  © HBO Yes, even though they live in a world with no electricity, they still need to charge stuff. 8. Jon Snow's Rubber Sword  © HBO Okay fine, I agree it would be hard to carry around a large metal sword while shooting for long periods but someone should've made sure there wasn't a flaccid sword flopping around in the real scene. 9. Shireen Baratheon's Hair  © HBO Back in season one when Ned Stark's head was still attached to his body, he found out about Cersei and Jamie's incestuous relationship basically because of the colour of the hair of all the Baratheon and Lannister children. Apparently, all real Baratheon children had black hair but Shireen is obviously a Baratheon with almost Lannister-like blonde hair. 10. Where Is Grenn's Sword?  Bro, are you picking up the sword or not? Or did you just throw it a second after picking it up? 11. Dead Bodies Disappearing  Yes, we've seen dead people walking around on this show but this obviously wasn't the case in this scene. 12. A Poor Knight Not Being Able To Handle The Sword  So sad, everyone's doing it so swiftly and flawlessly while you're just struggling and hoping no one notices.

Move Over Cricket, Franchise-Based X1 Racing League Is Set To Enthral Motorsport Enthusiasts In India

Cricket needs no introduction in India. The country considers the gentleman's game to be a religion and worships cricketers like demigods. The popularity of cricket can be ascertained from the success of the Indian Premier League (IPL). Currently in progress, India's cash-rich T20 tournament has kept everyone occupied with its fair dosage of matches in the ongoing season. And when the 2019 edition of the IPL comes to an end on 12th May, cricket fans will be treated to the coveted ICC World Cup, slated to begin later this month. While a majority of the Indian population is enjoying the cricket season, some are really tired of its overdose. Whether you're chilling with friends or making those tiring presentations at office, there's no escaping from cricket. Though we can't really do much about the overdose of cricket, the advent of a promising motorsport league in India might just prove to be a saviour. © X1 Racing League India's famed international car racers Armaan Ebrahim (29) and Aditya Patel (30) have joined hands to launch the Xtreme1 (X1) Racing League in India. Expected to kickstart in October this year, the X1 Racing League is a franchise-based tournament that will see eight teams locking horns in what promises to be a thrilling battle on the track. Ushering in a new era of racing in India, the X1 Racing League will be held in a mix of track and street circuits where the eight city-based franchise will be seen using two cars (custom-made two-seater sports car) and four drivers to pip each other to the title. Backed By FMSCI © X1 Racing League The X1 Racing League is backed and sanctioned by the Federation of Motor Sports Clubs of India (FMSCI), the governing body of motorsports in the country. The league has entered into a long-term exclusive commercial rights partnership with Federation of Motor Sports Clubs of India (FMSCI), granting exclusive rights including sponsorship, broadcasting, advertising, intellectual property, franchising and new league rights, amongst others exclusively for city-based 4W racing events and/or competitions in league format. Top Drivers In The Fray © X1 Racing League Talks are on to rope in well-known race drivers including former Formula One, Formula E, Indy 500, Le Mans and NASCAR drivers to the X1 Racing League which also happens to be the world's first city-based franchise league in motorsports. Each team will comprise of one international male driver, one international female driver, one Indian international driver and one Indian domestic driver. Women Empowerment © X1 Racing League In a strong move towards the inclusion of women in motorsports in India and pushing the theme of gender neutrality in sports, female drivers will race along with male drivers in this first-of-its-kind format. Boost For Youngsters © X1 Racing League The league aims to discover India's next racing superstar by providing equal opportunities to rookies and national champions through a platform where they compete with the best in the world. League Season © X1 Racing League Races will take place on Saturdays and Sundays. Each race will be of 45 minutes and there will be 3 races per day, with innovative race formats. Noida's Buddh International and the MMRT in Chennai are the obvious choices for the track venues and the street races will be announced by the founders in the near future. It was in 2011 when motorsport enthusiasts were given a first-hand experience of competitive racing as Formula One Grand Prix came to India. But, unavoidable hurdles - including tax disputes - forced the F1 GP away from India after just three seasons. Since then, competitive motorsport racing leagues have eluded India, leaving the fans disheartened. But, the advent of the promising X1 Racing League is undoubtedly a massive step in the promotion of motorsports in the country.

CID Officer Daya Is Back To 'Break' The Internet With These Hilarious 'Avengers' & GOT Memes

Even before 'Game Of Thrones' or 'Avengers' series came into our lives or existence, there was one show that ruled all our hearts - 'CID'. Watching ACP Pradyuman and his officers Abhijeet and Daya crack each case with precision and catch the criminals was all we looked forward to always. While we loved watching them do their thing, people also loved cracking jokes on Daya and his technique of entering a room. Of all the officers in the team, it was Daya who was loved by people the most for a) *Daya, Darwaza tod do* and b) his slap to make even the scariest criminal accept his crimes. 'CID' ruled the world of television for more than 20 years, before it went off-air. Now, after so many days, suddenly the internet decided to remember officer Daya in its own hilarious way.  In case you haven't noticed already, pictured of a 'sad and upset' Daya is doing the rounds on social media, to express the meltdown they expressed after watching 'Avengers: Endgame' and the initial episodes of 'Game Of Thrones' season 8.  Sadness at its peak after #AvengersEndgame #LokSabhaElections2019 #GameofThrones finishes. pic.twitter.com/573uBOKtsQ — Godman Chikna (@Madan_Chikna) April 27, 2019 When you want to break the door but thanos snapped people out, so there is no one to say "Daya darbaza tod"#Avengers #Thanos pic.twitter.com/ZL9rngoKwk — aftabð®ð³ (@biryani_babu) April 27, 2019 Pic 1: After watching #InfinityWar

Virat Kohli's Voter ID Card Picture Is Making Us Feel Good About Our Aadhaar Card Photos

Voting is our fundamental right and like I said earlier, the entire nation's fate depends on the tiny mark of blue ink on your fingers. Be it commoners or actors, cricketers and politicians; everyone is busy exercising their right and urging other people to do the same. So is cricketer Virat Kohli.  Instagram Virat Kohli, one of the finest batsmen in the world and RCB (Royal Challengers Bangalore) captain, is all set to cast his vote in the ongoing Lok Sabha elections 2019 and he announced the same on his Instagram on Sunday. Sharing his voter ID on Instagram story, Kohli wrote, "Ready to vote in Gurugram on the 12th May. Are you?"   Instagram However, he deleted the stories, probably because his personal information was revealed in public. He later posted only the front side of his voter ID and blurred out the details. Voting in Delhi and Gurugram will be held on May 12.  But, do you know what else is on May 12? The final match of IPL 2019 is in Hyderabad. Although, Virat Kohli's RCB is at the bottom in the point table, if they miraculously manage to enter the finals then Kohli will have a tough time travelling between the two cities. Instagram In other news, at least Kohli's goofy expression on his Voter ID card is making us feel less miserable about our Aadhar card pictures.

IAF Doctors Dancing To Pharrell Williams' Song 'Happy' Will Put A Smile On Your Face

What's the first thing that comes to your mind when someone says doctor? Injections, painkillers, antibiotics, and perhaps a man with a grumpy face sitting with stethoscope. I am sure you get my point. Well, no matter what thoughts come to your mind, dancing never finds its way to the list.  But, thanks to the Indian Air Force doctors, people can now imagine doctors as someone who is cool and likes to do fun stuff. Something like, clapping along to show that happiness is the truth, because they're happy.  Twitter In case you didn't get it already, we're talking about the viral video of IAF doctors, who took a break from their work to dance to 'Happy', and let's just say this is the coolest thing we've seen on social media in recent times. Twitter Be it doctors, air force officers or patients; everyone is seen enjoying while dancing and dabbing to the tunes of Pharell Williams' hit song. Reportedly, it was shot at the 12 Air Force Hospital in Gorakhpur, Uttar Pradesh.  If you Remember the Gangnam Style by the 68 DSSC at Wellington, in 2013, this will make your day.

It's Cheesy Fries & Wedges That Are Increasing Your Waistline, Not Potatoes

The potato has always been at the receiving end of hatred in the dietary world. The first piece of non-factual advice that comes from your peers, relatives or family members when you are trying to lose weight is "stop eating potatoes". The potato is blamed for so many reasons with some even going to lengths to make ridiculous claims like "you are what you eat". "If you eat potatoes, you will become round like one." © Getty Images Is this potato bashing even justified? Personally, I do not think so. Here's why the potato bashing is unjustified and why should you hop on the #savethepotato train with me: 1. Potatoes Are Low In Calories  Potatoes are actually one of the low-calorie food options you could add to your diet. In terms of calories per 100 grams, potatoes are only 77 calories.  And funnily enough, it has more potassium than a banana. Though not a fair comparison and not even that much of a difference, as bananas per 100 grams have 90 kcals. 2. It Is You Who Makes Potato A High-Calorie Food Like I told, the potato isn't a high-calorie food itself.  But this can changes drastically when the preparation method comes into the picture. Now think about the ways that you consume potatoes, it is in some form of deep-fried food items like french fries, potato wedges, cheesy fries and so on. © Getty Images Let's again compare the calories of all these variants: Potatoes - 75 kcals per 100 grams French fries - 345 kcals per 100 grams Potato wedges - 320 kcals per 100 grams  Cheesy fries - 380 kcals per 100 grams So, it is not the potato to blame but you who deep fries them before eating. 3. Potato Is Very Satiating In a study done by Holt et. al. in 1995, they took 38 carbohydrate-rich foods like fruits, bakery products, snack foods, breakfast cereals etc. and fed it to the subjects. The aim was to understand the effect of these foods on the satiety of the individual with white bread being the standard, thus 100 per cent. At the end of the study, they found out that the potato had the highest satiety index of 323% and the lowest was that of a croissant with a satiety score of 47%. This study was done comparing the foods in isolation which is not how we truly eat but this study makes a good enough claim that why the potato should be your go-to choice when dieting on lower calories. © Getty Images 4. It Beats Rice When It Comes To Dieting Thanks to some good amount of awareness being spread in the fitness industry, people have stopped demonizing rice finally. Now when we compare rice with potato, let's see who ends up winning. Let's say you have a portion of 50 grams of rice in a meal. That comes to approx. 180 kcals with the primary constituent being carbohydrates. For the same 180 kcals, you could consume 250 grams of potatoes and again, it is a source of carbohydrates. Long story short, you will get more food to eat for the same amount of calories and be fuller and more satisfied. Moral of the story: Stop bashing the potato!
