Bitten by the travel bug, he too wanted to see the world, travel around, and have the time of his life. But travelling is expensive. So this creative ad guy came out with a novel concept of bartering his work for food and shelter. He created a video of himself offering his creative services to companies, and in return he did not want money but only a place to sleep in and a meal to survive.

The idea really picked up well with ad and media agencies, and he received around 750 offers from all over the world.

AB De Villiers’ Parents Reveal Why He Chose Cricket, And We Are Thankful To Them For Letting Him Make That Choice…

The family of AB De Villiers is in India for his 100th test match at the Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bengaluru and they got candid about their superstar son. AB De Villiers scored a handsome 85 in his 100th test match innings; however, South Africa was riled up by the Indian spinners on a slow track.

De Villiers’ father, a doctor by profession, weighed in on the performance thus far in the rain affected match, “Yes, it’s disappointing… But that’s how cricket goes”. “I think he was chasing his hundred because wickets fell one after the other… But I think that score today was more important to him than making a hundred.”

AB De Villier Parents say why he chose cricket

De Villiers was quite good in a handful of other sports including Golf, Tennis and hockey, says De Villiers senior. “I used to think lying in bed at night that Ernie Els would see this lad, because he’s striking the golf ball so magnificently. Later on there was tennis.”

His mother, however, knew from heart that her son would do well in a team sport rather than an individual sport. “He’s not one who will do very well in individual sport. He will miss the guys around him. He actually made the decision (to take up cricket) based on that as well,” Millie (AB De Villiers’ mother) said. “He loved his friends; the house was always full of his mates. They were always playing games.”

AB De Villier Parents say why he chose cricket

ABD has established himself as one of the best batsmen among his contemporaries including Virat Kohli, Steven Smith and Kane Williamson. His ability to strike the ball from impossible angles makes his game multi-dimensional and very difficult to pick-up for the bowlers. The way he entertains millions of fans with his flawless batting would not have been possible if not for his parents’ freedom to choose his sport of interest and for that we are eternally grateful to the De Villiers family.

12 Reasons Why Everyone Needs A Friend Who Doesn’t Drink In Their Lives…

1. Friends who don’t drink are usually the ones your parents trust the most. You can totally count on them to lie to your parents or girlfriend about your whereabouts without creating any suspicion.

Why You Should Have A Friend Who Doesn’t Drink

2. Admit it, you’d never remember where you’ve parked your car after getting drunk if they weren’t around. They take over the steering wheel when you’re drunk. Even during those times when you’re too adamant on driving, they are the ones who make sure you don’t ram your car into the pole.

Why You Should Have A Friend Who Doesn’t Drink

3. Let’s face it, drunk people can get really annoying, especially with their never ending rants and emotional outburst about life, friendships, parents, career, Arvind Kejriwal and what not! And that one friend always puts up with the torture without saying a word!

Why You Should Have A Friend Who Doesn’t Drink

4. When you’re drunk and emotional, they are the ones who stop you from drunk dialing your ex and embarrassing your friends. Also, they make great wingmen because they’re the only friends who know what they’re talking about at parties!

5. There have been times when you’ve gotten drunk and said mean, nasty things to them and they’ve still forgiven you each time and stuck around!

Why You Should Have A Friend Who Doesn’t Drink

10. Yeah, they always make embarrassing drunk videos of you and tell you things you don’t want to know the next morning but when you look back a few years down the line, these are the fun things you’re going to miss the most!

12. And most importantly, they’re your true friends. They’re still fun even when your alcohol wears down. They don’t hang out with you because you’re fun when drunk; they’re friends with you because of who you are as a person! How many other friends can you say that about?

This Indian 9-Year-Old Is A CEO And A Cyber Expert….

At his age, boys are just stepping into the fantasy world of Hogwarts and beginning to identify with the Wimpy Kid, but Reuben Paul has his eyes on the rain — the green code rain of The Matrix. The third-grader is already an accomplished hacker, app developer, cyber security expert and, not surprisingly, CEO of a game development firm, Prudent Games. In hacker circles, he is also a respected speaker, who shares his wisdom from the dais while standing on a chair hidden behind the lectern.

On Thursday, the smiling nine-year-old from Austin, Texas was back in action at Ground Zero Summit 2015, a meeting of cybersecurity experts and researchers that’s one of the biggest hacker conferences in the world. Last year, he had delivered his keynote on November 14, Children’s Day, but this time he’s here as a ‘special ambassador’ for teaching cybersecurity to children and has a special address lined up.

This Indian 9-Year-Old Is A CEO And A Cyber Expert

The four-day summit that has brought together an army of experts started at The Ashok Hotel with an address by the chief guest, Home Minister Rajnath Singh. Drawing attention to the new threat of radicalisation through social media, Singh said cybersecurity experts should try to stop it. He described the Worldwide Web as the “fifth dimension of security” and pointed out that busting cybercrime is difficult as it involves locations across the world, different languages, cultures and legal frameworks.

Paul, who is the youngest attendee, told TOI he cut his teeth in the field with ‘credential harvesting’, a technical term for stealing passwords. “With great hacking skills you get power, and with great power comes great responsibility,” he said, quoting his hero, Spider-Man. While Paul wants to become a “good cyberspy”, the venue was teeming with experts who have already earned their stripes.

One of the hackers said on condition of anonymity that he had started out by hacking his college’s system to know his grades in graduation. Another, Harsh Shah, hacked his college’s Wi-Fi and IT systems to block access to social media. Inderjeet, an ethical hacker, said he had found a security flaw in the online passbook printing tool of a bank.

Jiten Jain, CEO of Indian Infosec Consortium, which organizes the summit, said their objective is to have all the hackers and cyber experts under one umbrella for research on the country’s cybersecurity. Last year, they had found malware and viruses in many defence news sites.

10 Unhealthy Habits That Will Cost You Dearly…

Not Sleeping Enough

#WorldHealthDaySpecial: 10 Unhealthy Habits That Will Cost You Dearly

Numerous studies have pointed out the dangerous effects of not having enough sleep every night. From dizziness to obesity and a whole host of problems, your lost sleep is harming you in more deadly ways than you can ever imagine. Aim for 7 hours of sleep every night!

Not Drinking Enough Water

#WorldHealthDaySpecial: 10 Unhealthy Habits That Will Cost You Dearly

Another habit that we fail to keep a check on is the amount of water we consume through the day. Having anything less than 3 to 4 litres is a recipe for disaster as your body needs that much water to function at its optimum level. Do this for just a few days and you will see the difference.

Not Breathing Correctly

#WorldHealthDaySpecial: 10 Unhealthy Habits That Will Cost You Dearly

The most important activity of our lives is also the most underrated. Excessive pollution and garbage has made us close our noses in public and resort to erratic breathing at other times. Breathing correctly is the first step to a healthy heart and body, and if you are breathing anywhere above your stomach you need to learn how to draw full breaths.

Eating Too Much Sugar And Salt

#WorldHealthDaySpecial: 10 Unhealthy Habits That Will Cost You Dearly

Sodium and sugar are the biggest silent killers out there. From fluctuating blood pressure to bloating and rampant obesity, our processed food is full of excess sugar and salt that is nothing but toxin to your body. Resolve to eat healthy at all times even if it means sacrificing your taste buds. Your body will thank you for it.

Eating Too Much Or Too Little

#WorldHealthDaySpecial: 10 Unhealthy Habits That Will Cost You Dearly

Not being able to judge how much food we need is another lifestyle habit we suffer from. Eating in front of a TV or computer screen disorients our mind even more. Ensure that you chew your food properly and take time to eat. Learning how much food you need to eat is essential to keep your body healthy.

Having Bad Hygiene Habits

#WorldHealthDaySpecial: 10 Unhealthy Habits That Will Cost You Dearly

Whether it is biting your nails, not brushing properly or simply having a casual attitude to cleanliness, bad hygiene often doesn’t strike in its first attempt but if it gets in, you better be ready for a slugfest. Update your sense of hygiene if you want to live healthier.

Wearing Headphones All Day

#WorldHealthDaySpecial: 10 Unhealthy Habits That Will Cost You Dearly

No, we aren’t kidding. Headphones wrapped around your head all day results in bacteria around your ears. Worse, hearing music at a loud volume can damage your hearing permanently. Never increase the volume of your earpiece while commuting too. Invest in noise-cancelling headphones and limit the time you spend with your headphones.

Not Walking Out Of A Bad Relationship

#WorldHealthDaySpecial: 10 Unhealthy Habits That Will Cost You Dearly

This is more for mental peace of mind than anything else. After all, being in a bad relationship will only result in stress and frustration no matter what else you do. Whether it is your boss or your best friend or even your girlfriend or wife, if you feel you are stuck with any of them, then be frank and get out of the relationship. You might be saving more than yourself.

Being A Perfectionist All The Time

#WorldHealthDaySpecial: 10 Unhealthy Habits That Will Cost You Dearly

Perfectionism is a myth. No matter how well-made something is, there is always someone willing to criticize it. Stop being a perfectionist and instead change your strategy to doing the absolute best that you can do. Don’t push yourself too much and don’t harass others in the name of perfectionism. A calm and peaceful life is better than a life of chasing perfection unto eternity.

Not Devoting Time To Your Hobbies

#WorldHealthDaySpecial: 10 Unhealthy Habits That Will Cost You Dearly

Our daily lives are so absorbing in themselves that we like to do nothing but laze around when we have any time to ourselves. Stop binging on the latest TV series and surfing the Internet aimlessly and look towards devoting some quality time towards your hobbies, be it painting or learning a new skill or even writing your own book. Be an inspiration unto yourself and watch how your mind and body reward you with ideas and good health.

Best Biceps Exercise…

Exercise 1 Barbell Curl

Barbell Curl

Barbell Curl

The first biceps exercise to perform is barbell biceps curls, which will also allow you to overload those biceps with a heavy weight. Most trainees are slightly stronger when lifting a barbell versus a set of dumbbells, so this is a great one for maximum strength development.

When doing the exercise, the primary thing to focus on is that you’re not cutting the movement pattern short at all, and that you’re not allowing momentum to cause you to lean backward as you hoist the weight upwards.

This is one of the most common mistakes with this exercise—momentum performs more of the work than your muscles actually do. If you perform it in a slow and controlled manner, that should reduce the chances of this happening significantly and allow you to place a higher intensity deep within the muscle fibers.

Exercise 2 Incline Dumbbell Curl

114_1

incline dumbbell curl

The second exercise to add is incline dumbbell curls. This exercise is one of the best to help prevent that momentum issue from happening as we just discussed, since it essentially restricts the movement of the back.

When doing this exercise, you will feel maximum tension on the biceps muscle belly, so don’t be surprised if the weight is slightly lower. As long as you’re pushing yourself hard, using the lower weight but maintaining proper form will be the way to go for results.

Exercise 3 standing biceps cable curl

standing biceps cable curl

standing biceps cable curl

If you’re looking to target the deep-tissue muscle fibers, cable curls are a good bet. Since the pattern of movement is less stable with this movement, due to the constant tension provided by the cable, you will call all the stabilization muscles surrounding the biceps into play as you execute the exercise.

You can use a variety of different attachments to perform the cable curls including a rope, a straight bar, or rotating cable handles that allow you to work a single arm at a time.

Exercise 4 Concentration Curls

concentration curls

concentration curls

Finally, the last of the exercises to consider to blast your biceps into growth are concentration curls. When done while sitting, these will also limit the degree momentum plays in the execution of the exercise and place all the emphasis right on the biceps muscle.

There will be no helper muscles called into play when doing concentration curls (when done properly), so this is a good one to add in at the very end of your workout when you’re really looking to finish off the biceps and fully exhaust them.
