  1. Anushka Sharma and Varun Dhawan's 'Sui Dhaaga' trailer dropped yesterday and so did our jaws after we saw how brilliant it was. From Varun and Anushka's crackling chemistry to highlighting a small town couple's struggle to chase their dreams, the trailer has all the ingredients for a blockbuster. YRF On one hand, where half the world was busy applauding Anushka, Varun and the director of 'Dum Laga Ke Haisha' for giving us a movie like 'Sui Dhaaga - Made In India', Twitter on the other hand was busy doing what it does best - churn out hilarious memes out of anything and everything. And this movie wasn't spared either. Just like the trailer, the memes too are pure gold. Sab Badhiya hai Maujiðð Aap ne to kamal hi kardiyaa. #varundhawan #anushkasharma #suidhaagamadeinindia #SuiDhaaga #28thSeptember #yrf @varundvn @anushkasharma A post shared by VARUN DHAWAN™ FC ⤠(@varuniacslove) on Aug 14, 2018 at 6:38am PDT"> // --> // --> #Agle #janam #mohe #Ambani #kijo ð¢ð¢ #suidhaaga #anushkasharma #varundhawan #Bollywood #movie #celebrity #celebs #memes #gossip A post shared by Chaa Mudi Pari Hai (@garibmeme_) on Aug 14, 2018 at 6:09am PDT Finally, man!

His wife Mamta (an embroider) suggests he does something of his own and that's when the duo begins their struggle to achieve their dreams and come up with their own Sui Dhaaga, which is 'Mad In India'. In case you missed the trailer, you can watch it here.
  2. 'Tu jaanta hai ki mera baap kaun hai' and 'baap pe mat jaa' – the two lines have been spoken so much for years, that they've honestly become a joke now. Every person in Delhi is associated with these lines and it's quite hilarious. But, there's another 'baap'-related line to join the ones above – 'tere baap ki sadak hai kya?' and the Ministry of Road Transport and Highways is making the most of it. We all know how passionate Akshay Kumar is about social causes and has always tried his best to do his part in bringing about a change, both with his movies and in real-life. The universally loved actor was the obvious and perfect choice to convey the message of road safety to the masses and he did it brilliantly. Better late than never. Follow traffic rules for your own and others safety, kyunki road kisi ke baap ki nahi hai. #SadakSurakshaJeevanRaksha — Akshay Kumar (@akshaykumar) August 14, 2018 He has posted three small videos which work as PSAs and is using humour to warn people who believe 'yeh unke baap ka road hai'. It is always better to be safe than sorry. Follow traffic rules for your own and others safety kyunki road kisi ke baap ki nahi hai. #SadakSurakshaJeevanRaksha — Akshay Kumar (@akshaykumar) August 14, 2018 As the brand ambassador for the Government of India's road safety campaign, he donned a traffic cop uniform and targeted people's behaviour on the road in the three one-minute videos. Follow traffic rules for your own and others safety kyunki road kisi ke baap ki nahi hai. #SadakSurakshaJeevanRaksha — Akshay Kumar (@akshaykumar) August 14, 2018 Apparently, he didn't waste any time to join the road safety campaign when he got to know the “shocking facts and figures related to road accidents which can be prevented.” Well, that's true, though. I mean traffic rules are there for a reason. If you think you won't get caught and think you're an exception, you're just risking becoming the rule yourself.
  3. A casual encounter with India transformed into a longlasting love affair for Gabriella Demetriades, who never imagined she would come to call the subcontinent her second home in the near future, since her first visit to the country in 2009. A South African model, she now has another title added to her crown, that of a designer and a successful entrepreneur whose designs have been sported by some of the leading names in the fashion and film industry. A beauty to behold, with sculpted features and green eyes gorgeous enough to leave you spellbound, she wears many hats, steals as many hearts and rocks at everything she decides to put her mind to. When It All Began © Facebook Having been to India once before, Demetriades found herself back in the hustling 'n' bustling country in 2011 for a modelling contract that spanned over three months. However, we must tell you and perhaps also refresh your memory as to where else you might have spotted this beauty before. She first came into the limelight when she auditioned for Miss IPL Bollywood in 2009. She also happens to be one of the contenders for FHM magazine's '100 Sexiest Women In The World'. Having been the face of Deccan Chargers as well as also having been a Miss IPL Bollywood representative, she caught the eyes of spectators who then chose her to represent Kolkata Knight Riders. Thus began her ride to glory. Not All That's Rosy, Is Pretty © Facebook Like every big name in the making, Demetriades had her share of hiccups and the most memorable one has to be when she made national news back in 2010. She found herself amidst a tiff between businessman Lalit Modi and Congress leader Shashi Tharoor over certain disagreements involving the model's visa, which made Gabriella find her way to the headlines. The episode left her parents worried but the former model claims that she didn't feel scandalised even for a moment. Whatever the actual cause, we presume it did some good to her career in terms of publicity and recognition. The High Life © Facebook Cut to 2016 when the model donned the hat of a designer and launched her own clothing label 'DEME'. With some of the prominent industry bigwigs attending her store launch in Bandra, Mumbai her entrepreneurial journey got a kickass start. Ever since a number of celebrities and leading models have stepped out in her designs that are a mix of edgy and soft, flowy silhouettes which complement any and every woman of style out there. day to night looks from our new capsule â¤ï¸ #deme #demegirls #demelove @diva.dhawan @gabriellademetriades A post shared by Deme_Love (@deme_love_) on Jul 31, 2018 at 9:38am PDT Stealing Hearts And Bringing Up The Temperature © Facebook Now, while she has turned into a businesswoman for the past two years, she hasn't ignored her talents as a gorgeous model and is often seen updating her Instagram account with photographs from various shoots and outings. Her feed screams “sexy” and “oomph” and one can always spot a great number of men (and women) fawning over her beauty and charm. With every post, she sends her followers into a tizzy and the paparazzi into a shutter frenzy, because no matter the time or occasion, every appearance she makes turns up the heat by a few degrees. People have and continue to take notice of this beauty, who now calls this country her home and plans to continue to explore, expand and do what she is best at. Take a look at a few of her posts on Instagram to be sure of our claims and add to your list of divas to 'Follow' on insta. ð± A post shared by Gabriella Demetriades (@gabriellademetriades) on Feb 6, 2018 at 9:03pm PST Swamp thing @martinoprihoda #demelove A post shared by Gabriella Demetriades (@gabriellademetriades) on Oct 24, 2017 at 8:47pm PDT A post shared by Gabriella Demetriades (@gabriellademetriades) on Dec 22, 2017 at 12:00am PST all ya need is ... @taras84 A post shared by Gabriella Demetriades (@gabriellademetriades) on Jul 2, 2018 at 9:22pm PDT got something on my face @taras84 A post shared by Gabriella Demetriades (@gabriellademetriades) on May 17, 2018 at 6:46am PDT slip @rahuljhangiani A post shared by Gabriella Demetriades (@gabriellademetriades) on Jun 13, 2018 at 8:54pm PDT jaw game strong A post shared by Gabriella Demetriades (@gabriellademetriades) on Jul 24, 2018 at 11:42pm PDT A post shared by Gabriella Demetriades (@gabriellademetriades) on Jan 23, 2018 at 9:36am PST
  4. From a Paris man climbing up 5 floors with bare hands to save a child dangling from a balcony to to an NDRF cop crossing a sinking bridge in Kerala with a child in his arms; heroes can be found in every corner of the world. In fact, we can never thank them enough for risking their lives to rescue people. © Malayala Manorama Throughout our lives, we've been taught to selflessly help others, irrespective of whether they are humans or animals. Especially, with animals you need to be careful while rescuing them and take utmost care because they get scared easily and can't tell you how they feel. But, a macaw parrot in London knew exactly how she felt and clearly, that did not translate to “help me!”. © Twitter A firefighter unintentionally got on the wrong side of Jessie, a yellow and blue Macaw parrot, who asked him to “f**k off” when he was trying to rescue her. Jessie was sitting for nearly three days on the roof of a house in Edmonton, North London. Out of concern and assuming that she might be hurt, the London Fire Brigade was called to attend to the bird and get her down. However, when a firefighter brought a bowl of food to her, she shrugged him off with her badassery and kept telling him to “f**k off”. To rub salt to the already embarrassing situation, turns out Jessie wasn't injured in the first place. After giving the firefighter a piece of her mind, she flew to another roof and eventually flew back to her owner, thus giving major burn to the firefighters in the process. © Twitter Woah! Jessie, you've got some serious attitude problem, girl! You need to calm yourself down. Before the rescue mission, the owner gave specific instructions to the firefighter to say 'I love You' to Jessie. But, looks like Jessie was in no mood for all this. Honestly, I don't know what's more embarrassing - someone asking you to “f**k off” or being told to “f**k off” by a parrot. And you guys thought that you are having a bad day! Source: Daily Mail

  6. The final season of everyone's favourite 'Game Of Thrones' is still going to take a while before it hits our screens and blows us away with what it has to offer, in terms of the many questions that are hanging on our heads like daggers. © HBO While the wait is crazy and it's less than a year (as if that's a consolation) left when we'll shun social life for decrypting episodes, a bizarre new theory about the insane connection between Jon Snow and the Night King is doing the rounds on Reddit. Let's discuss what everyone is expecting from the finale. A major chunk of the fan population feels that Jon Snow will reign, Khaleesi will unite and have a family of her own with him, Cersei will be defeated and it's going to be one happy ending for our guy who was previously unlucky in love with Ygritte. However, if history is proof then we know that the makers do anything that is ever predictable and everyone changes sides like a game of chess. © HBO According to this bizarre new theory, Jon Snow will be the end of the Night King and will replace him, and not just kill him. Allow yourself a breather and read this before you react: “Someone has to 'pull out' the dragon-glass in his chest which was used to create him in the first place. By doing this the Night King would 'die,' but unlike what happens when someone kills a 'normal' white walker, none of the creatures the Night king 'created' or turned would die. Instead they would lose the mind controlling effect the Night King has on them, and they would start doing whatever the f*ck they want, i.e. rampaging around the country. To prevent this scenario from happening someone has to take the place of the Night King by stabbing himself with the previously extracted dragonglass-dagger. By doing this the person (in our mind Jon Snow) would sacrifice himself for the greater good, gaining control over all of the wights and walkers. He then would lead them back over the wall back into the north where they would stay like it has been before since the last long night (like a beast in a cage).” Now we know that Jon Snow is the ever-sacrificing, people-loving King; so this actually makes sense if you allow this theory to persist. © HBO So I am adding this theory to the list of things that have addled our brains and made the wait harder that it already was.
  7. The might of an actor lies in their ability to act, yes, but it is equally about creating an impact capable of leaving the audience intrigued and hooked on for more. An actor does not just portray a character and performs on stage or the screen, but also works on the delivery that does justice to the demands of the character and renders it memorable to every theatre or movie-goer. While we talk about such fine actors, there's got to be a mention of the man of the moment, who has every cinema enthusiast going gaga about the endless possibilities over a particular '007' development. © Reuters News has surfaced that we might be looking at Idris Elba as the next “double-o-seven” in the making and we couldn't be more satisfied with the choice. Known best for his dynamic acting skills and a voice that has played a pivotal role to making many roles highly memorable (think Shere Khan in the 'Jungle Book'), we bear no doubts that Idris makes for a great fit as “Bond, James Bond” in the upcoming movies after Daniel Craig's departure from the franchise next year. More On The Man Himself © Reuters For those who might not be well aware of the man in question, Idris Elba is a 45-year-old British actor, who has made a name and carved a niche for himself in Hollywood. Fondly remembered for his stellar performance as Stringer in 'The Wire' and BBC's home production drama 'Luther', Idris has time and again showed the world that he holds immense potential to go from suave to ruthless and from sinister to disarming in a matter of few characters (or even frames for that matter). The news of him having potentially bagged the role of 007 started doing the rounds when he posted this intriguing tweet - my name's Elba, Idris Elba. — Idris Elba (@idriselba) August 12, 2018 This got the tabloids into a frenzy and the news soon hit the screens across the world. However, within a little while, after the 'hype' began to gain momentum, Elba posted a new tweet that acted as sort of a killjoy to all the premature celebrations. This is what he had to say - Don't believe the HYPE... — Idris Elba (@idriselba) August 12, 2018 While we agree that we'd love to have a confirmation, this tweet has, however, left all of us hanging and we simply can't wait for a confirmation (or sadly even a denial) on the rumours! Now, while we have been voicing our support for this choice, you surely didn't expect us to leave you hanging without giving you valid reasons for it. Here are Elba's performances in 5 major productions that will re-affirm that he is indeed the best choice for the iconic role. 1. Stringer Bell From 'The Wire' © YouTube We had to kick off our argument with this one. The character of Stringer Bell portrayed by Elba in 'The Wire' is perhaps how the world went gaga over the man. His captivating and charismatic take on the aide de camp to a drug lord Barksdale, goes well with the cool and panache exhibited by Bond in difficult situations. Stringer Bell is calm and calculative with a display of intelligence we identify with 007. Convincingly cutthroat and well assessed in his means to achieve his targets, Bell reminds us of Bond's obsession of completing his missions to the T. 2. John Luther From 'Luther' © YouTube The titular role that put Elba on the map was that of detective John Luther who exhibited more than a few similarities to Bond's ways in this show. The otherwise calm Luther's demeanour stood out in greater contrast when he lost his cool, again reminding us of Bond, who is known to play to cool and sharp at all times. The show's violent edge also comes in handy when we're trying to pitch the two characters' combating skills against each. Severe and exuding vibes that scream danger, Luther chooses to stay aloof and within a shell, with not many friendships to count on, much like Bond. 3. Commandant From 'Beasts Of No Nation' © YouTube Another one of Elba's memorable portrayals, he does justice to the characters that are complex and flawed with defunct morals. His portrayal of a brutal and nuanced commandant or leader of a militia sets him as the predator who fights for the cause. The Commandant stands as an example of how situations can turn any man into a beast. The character and its struggles are relatable and on the other hand, remind us of Bond and his skilled antics and methods to achieve his goal without caring about the means. Charisma, strategy and resources all pulled into one - like Commandant, like Bond! 4. Nelson Mandela From 'Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom' © YouTube When most actors shuddered at the idea, Elba came through as the perfect fit to play one of the world's most loved political leaders of all times. The stellar performance he renders in the movie befits Mandela's amazing life story. Elba effortlessly presented the leader's struggles and strengths, thereby giving the world a closer look at the man's life. From the myriad shades of Mandela that he showcases on the screen, it can be said that he possesses the capability to portray the multi-hued and demanding character of James Bond. 5. Stacker Pentecost From 'Pacific Rim' © YouTube The leader of the pack and the one who sounded the cry of war and claimed his right to might, Marshal Stacker Pentecost came through as the ideal person to look up to. The depth of character and gravity that he showcases sets him in line to take up Bond's role in the truest sense. Pentecost is stern but can be kind too, just like Bond is to M, and knows just the right way to make people follow his commands. © Reuters Based on the many skills and acting calibre exhibited by Elba over the years and across various genres of film and drama, we bear no doubt in our minds that he is indeed a great choice for Bond and is more than capable of doing justice to the iconic character.
  8. The cryptocurrency craze was at its all-time high last year, as people were highly optimistic and the sudden demand made currencies like Bitcoin soar higher than ever. The timing was everything. In November 2016, India implemented demonetisation of the Rupee and the following months were harrowing for those with a huge pile of black money. Money laundering is a very old concept, every time any authority brings in a new law to curb it, the process changes. While many were fine with giving away a huge chunk in 'commission' for converting the black money to white, a new scheme was in town that promised to take your black money, pay you interest on that sum and ultimately improve your returns exponentially, thanks to the cryptocurrency boom. © Reuters One such scheme was run by BitConnect, a cryptocurrency firm that was being promoted in Gujarat by a man called Satish Kumbhani. The company promised to offer 1 per cent interest daily on Bitcoins and double its valuation within 100 days. Trading in cryptocurrency was still legally a grey area, there were no definite laws to regulate it. BitConnect lured many rich investors from all parts of India and carried out the transactions without any proper documentation. These transactions remained anonymous and were a perfect safe haven for laundering as well as earning out of your untaxed money. © Pexels The process was simple. You deposit your bitcoin with BitConnect and receive BitConnect (BCC) coins in return. Then you earn interest rates on their funds, which could sometimes be more than 40 per cent per month. BitConnect's plan was to slowly increase the demand for its BCC currency, this way its value would also increase. And to lure in more people, the interest scheme was set up. This setup ensured that BCC's value kept on increasing and coins bought at US$ 50-100, became worth US$ 362 in a year. © Google Trends on Black Money Searches in India All the uptrend came to a screeching halt when the company's operation was kept on hold by the securities boards of Texas and North Carolina, USA. BCC crashed to a meagre US$ 2 overnight and it currently trades for just US$ 0.5. A perfect Ponzi scheme, BitConnect collected Bitcoins that were globally valued, and in return gave their own so-called currency, that has no backing. The Reserve Bank of India (RBI) has practically banned all virtual crypto-based transactions in the country. Google searches about black money, laundering, and tax evasion spiked massively after November 2016 and in a bid to find a safe route for their possessions, investors blindly fell into such traps.

  9. Many phones from major companies like ASUS, Essential, LG and ZTE are shipping with severe vulnerabilities out of the box, according to a report by cyber-security firm Kryptowire. Android is the most targeted mobile OS, firstly because of its huge user base, and secondly, because OEMs usually install their own skins on top, without keeping security in mind. Apps are usually the easiest way to gain access to your phone, a link you may have clicked, or a .apk file you may have installed could be syphoning your data in the background. This has been the core reason why Google has always recommended its users to install apps from trusted sources or the Play Store. © Pexels Kryptowire has recognised 38 different vulnerabilities that can allow spying and factory reset to be loaded onto 25 Android phones. There are at least 10 devices sold across the major US carriers that come pre-loaded with bugs that are a security threat. The list of Android vendors affected includes Asus, Essential, LG, Nokia, Sony, and ZTE. Angelos Stavrou, Kryptowire's CEO, and Ryan Johnson, the firm's director of research, disclosed their findings at the DEFCON hacker conference on Friday. © MensXP "All of these are vulnerabilities that are prepositioned. They come as you get the phone out the box," Stavrou said. "That's important because consumers think they're only exposed if they download something that's bad." Essential has confirmed that they have fixed the vulnerability after Kryptowire shared their findings, while LG has said it's working on fixing these loop-holes. Even ASUS has confirmed that they are working on patching the security concerns raised and will be pushing out OTA updates soon. © YouTube Kryptowire says the issues are at the firmware level, as malicious apps from the Google Play store too can cause a lot of damage. The ASUS ZenFone Live is said to be the most affected one, as it exposes the user's entire data and a complete system takeover is possible including taking screenshots and video recordings of a user's screen and making phone calls. If you own any of these phones, you should install OTA updates as soon as possible in the coming few weeks. Running an anti-malware app won't be of any help here, as the loop-holes are at the firmware level. Source: CNET
  10. Not too long ago, an Indian sportsperson made an emotional appeal when barely 2000 people showed up to watch him and his team play against Chinese Taipei (which India won by 5-0). Yes, you guessed it right! We're talking about captain Sunil Chhetri, who urged his fans to come and see the match and said, "Abuse us, criticise us but please come to watch the Indian national team play." © Twitter People were so moved by his appeal that the subsequent matches against Kenya and New Zealand were sold out. At times fans' support is all that our sportspersons need to boost their morale and we've already seen the amount of difference fans can make in the lives of their favourite players. Fast forward to the present time and another captain has now urged his fans to never give up on him and his team. We're talking about Indian skipper Virat Kohli who posted an emotional message on social media, after the Indian Cricket team lost against England second time in a row, in the ongoing Test series at Lord's. England won by an innings and 159 runs. Reportedly, it was the first innings defeat since the Oval Test (2014) and the first-ever innings defeat under Kohli's Test captaincy. © Reuters Victory or loss is part and parcel of every sport and owning up to it and taking a lesson from it is one of the hardest things to do and possibly the best way to go about the defeat. And Virat Kohli who is known for unabashedly expressing himself, did not shy away from facing defeat and wrote this message, which will make every fan fall in love with him all over again. He wrote, "Sometimes we win and other times we learn. You never give up on us and we promise to never give up on you either. Onwards and upwards." While people are busy bashing Kohli and his strategies, let's not forget that Kohli is standing against the English players like a wall and putting a tough competition in front of them. India will be playing the third match on 18th August at Trent Bridge.
  11. While we all eat for different fitness goals, sometimes following certain guidance on food instructions blindly can cause certain complications if you are intolerant or allergic to certain foods. It is very important to be sure what food works for you and what type of food could kick you back to the starting line when you are so close to making those gains. So let's start with understanding that food allergies and being intolerant to certain foods are two different things. Understanding The Difference Between The Two © Thinkstock Food allergy causes an immune system reaction that affects different organs in the body. It can cause many symptoms. In some cases, an allergic food reaction can be severe or even send you to the hospital for days. Food intolerance symptoms are generally less serious and often have to do with just digestion issues. For example, certain people, who are lactose intolerant, could make them run to the toilet almost immediately. So, this is a good heads up for the guys who plan on starting with whey protein. Symptoms Of Food Intolerance Could Look Like Those Of Food Allergy A big difference in food intolerance is that it does not involve an attack on the immune system or cause severe allergic reactions such as bloated face, rashes on the skin, etc. While food allergies can be detected through medical tests, food intolerance does not show on medical tests. Symptoms may begin at any age and may develop quickly or slowly. It occurs more commonly in women, which may be because of hormone differences, as many food chemicals mimic hormones Symptoms Of Food Intolerance There are certain things that happen to you that could indicate you are intolerant to certain foods. Sudden body tremors, breaking out into cold sweats, feeling of palpitations, loose motions, breathing problems, unusual feeling on the skin such as burning sensation, these things are common. Pay attention to these signs and act upon it quickly. Symptoms Of Food Allergy If you happen to experience any of the following symptoms, then you better put that cookie down! Itching, burning and swelling around the mouth, swollen eyes and face skin rashes almost immediately after eating something you're allergic to, feeling of nausea and then vomiting, abdominal cramps are certain symptoms you need to look at. Treating Food Allergy Or Intolerance © YouTube Sometimes you have no choice but to give up on certain foods that were giving you all those gains. But it's for your own safety and health. But that would be the simplest way. Sometimes temporarily stopping some food for a period and then resuming to eat it after a big gap, that too in small quantities would be fine for food intolerant people, but allergies to certain food could be a lifelong symptom and those people may have to come in terms with that. Before you eliminate or reintroduce foods, seek advice from a specialist doctor and dietitian. Conclusion Dealing with food allergies can be irritating. The degree of reaction to certain allergies or intolerance can range from just a slight botheration to something that could be deadly. People with food allergy must vigilantly avoid the foods or supplementations that trigger a reaction. When food intolerance is present, it is important for people to plan, particularly while away from home. Checking with the people at the restaurant about the type of food served to simply preparing your own meals wherever you go would be a smarter option to avoid anything that could pull you backwards with your fitness goals. Eating right is a task especially when surrounded with a lot of challenges, and people who are prone to these complications need to be extra careful.

  12. Whenever you open any fitness or health website, you can always see a new workout program that has come up and promises you with serious gains. A lot of emphasis is given to workouts in research-based articles too. I am not saying that it's something that bad but you are forgetting that gains aren't just the results of your hard work in the gym. It is your recovery too that needs be to be prioritized. When we talk about gains, recovery is often neglected and then people struggle to make it to the gym the next day or even if they do, they lack the intensity. What's the use of that new workout program if it can't even recover your body for the next workout session? Today, I am going to tell you a few tips that will help you shorten your recovery period so that you can be prepared for the next workout session in no time. 1) Monitor Your Pre And Post Workout Nutrition © Thinkstock No matter what diet you are on and no matter how much low-carb you go, make sure that you consume enough carbs around your workout time. The reason for this is that you want to make sure that when you enter the gym, you have enough glycogen stores in your muscles and once you leave the gym, you replenish your glycogen stores properly. Training fatigue is directly related to your glycogen stores. If your glycogen stores are depleted when you start training, you will feel more fatigued. Similarly if you do not re-feed yourself with enough carbs, you will feel fatigued throughout the day. Thus, to speed up the recovery process, make sure that you consume enough carbs before and after your workout. 2) Make Sleeping Your Part Time Job © Thinkstock Recovery is impossible till the time you get a good sleep daily. The sleep should preferably be at the same time and for the same number of hours, daily. It should form a part of your daily routine just like your office and gym. While you may think that getting a good sleep of 8 to 9 hours once or twice a week is okay but you may not know that you might be a victim of poor quality of sleep. People who get poor quality of sleep often face the problem of increase in cortisol, decreased insulin sensitivity and higher release of hunger hormone known as ghrelin. Sleep disturbances also impact your testosterone and growth hormone which have a direct impact on your recover period. Thus, consider sleep as your daily job if you are serious about your recovery and gains. 3) Supplement If Necessary © Thinkstock Though I am not a big fan of supplementation but when necessary you should use them. Supplements like whey protein and Citrulline Malate can help you immensely with shortening the recovery process. People who consume whey protein after their workout are able to recover in lesser time than people who don't. Amino acids like Glutamine and L Carnitine help your body to recover in lesser time than a placebo. Citrulline Malate also helps in shortening the recovery period by reducing the soreness in your body.

  13. In case you didn't know, Apple is expected to launch three new iPhones this month which will comprise one iPhone X successor with an OLED screen, a larger 6.5-inch model with an OLED display and another 6.1-inch LCD variant. We've known this for a while; however, the names of the next iPhone may have also been leaked on the interwebs. New reports suggest that the three iPhones will be called iPhone XS, iPhone 9 and iPhone XS Plus, respectively. © YouTube If you're wondering how the devices will look and feel like, we've included two hands-on videos of the three devices that were acquired by YouTubers. From the videos, we can derive that all three models will have a glass sandwich design while the iPhone 9 will have an LCD display and single camera setup. One can also notice that the flash module has been moved to the bottom of the camera sensor to give it a unique look. The 5.8-inch iPhone XS will sport an OLED display and have a vertical dual camera set up at the back. The iPhone XS Plus will have the same design albeit a larger 6.5-inch screen. All three models are said to support wireless charging just like the current generation. © YouTube One should also note that the hands-on video below is of three high-quality replicas of the actual phone that will launch in September. The videos showcase everything we have mentioned above and the only notable difference is the large lock screen button on the iPhone 9. Here are the two videos if you want to get a closer look: There aren't any pricing details known for the new iPhones; however, we can draw a conclusion from reports published by top analyst Ming-Chi Kuo. According to Kuo, the 6.1-inch LCD model will be priced at $600-$700 while the 5.8-inch iPhone XS will cost between $700-800. The more expensive iPhone XS Plus will be the costliest model of them all and is touted to start at $999.
  14. While technically you can use your beard trimmer to shave you body hair as well - do you really want to do that? Just think about it for a second.

  15. Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas' love affair is pretty much the topic of everyone's interest these days. No doubt, everyone wants to know if they are engaged or are getting married this September. © Twitter Having a celebrity status often means being under the scanner at all times, and your every move is tracked and talked about. Well, being a celebrity has it owns perks and losses. For instance, Priyanka exiting from Salman Khan's 'Bharat' gave birth to the speculation that she did it, because of her engagement to Nick Jonas. However, later on, we got to know that it was because she had signed a movie with Chris Pratt. Just yesterday, even Salman Khan went all savage when asked about PeeCee's exit. © Twitter While nothing official has been announced yet about her relationship status, Priyanka finally broke her silence on the matter. The actress shared her thoughts during a session on 'Challenging the Status Quo & Forging New Paths' organised by FICCI Ladies Organisation in Delhi, last night. © Twitter Her response was classic PeeCee, making it clear once and for all that, her personal life is not for “public consumption”. “My personal life is not for public consumption. 90 per cent of my life is for public consumption but 10 per cent is for me. I am a girl and I have the right to keep that to myself. My family, friendship, my relationships are things I don't think I need to defend or explain to anyone. I am not running for the Office, so I don't think I need to give explanations.” Well, no doubt fans are pretty excited about PeeCee and Nick and whatever new venture lies in their future, but at times, most of us tend to forget that even they have a personal life, and have all the rights to keep a part of it to themselves. Well, official or not, we are definitely loving our desi girl and her awesome attitude.
