Talking to Girls

Ever wondered why that guy with average looks is so popular with females while you are left             un-noticed most of the time?
Well, it is because he has successfully avoided doing things, which could get him blacklisted. There are a lot of do’s and don’ts involved in the process of talking to the fairer sex, assuming she has noticed you. It’s almost like an elimination-based game, where you have to survive to keep conversation flowing. Here are 7 tips, which can help you:
1. Talk less, listen more: ever noticed that the dude you hate speaks less and nods more? Oh yes women dig people who can take all their blabber–jabber. They like to talk, so they need some one to listen to. All you have to do is be that guy and nod in between words. Dropping words like ‘absolutely’, ‘really?’ ‘Wow’ periodically could get you brownie points. The trick is to know the highs and lows of the sentence.
2. She saw you staring, DON’T do it again: you think you are fast? Think again. Chances are she saw you steal that peek while you were busy thinking she isn’t. So, as inviting as it may seem, DON’T! And watch out for that cross hand routine. It means you are slipping in her ‘this guy is creepy’ zone.
3. Sex jokes are NOT funny: chances are, that she has studied biology while in high school and considering how much heed is paid to sex education in India, knows about human anatomy as much as you do. So DON’T crack those sms forward jokes. No, not even that. Save them for your boys night outs.
4. Try not to be the know-it-all guy: ever wondered why you never heard about the love interest(s) of Einstein? Because there weren’t any. These people knew too much for their own good and there is something about nerds that repels women (my guess: they don’t want to be proven wrong). So, even if you know she isn’t right, breathe in, and… you know the rest!
5. Comic books don’t count as books: beware when she mentions how she has been reading this awesome book and asks what you like to read. Don’t even mention comic books (I KNOW, RIGHT?) because, sadly, women don’t think like us men. Dropping names like Deepak Chopra, Robin Sharma and Dale Carnegie can help you sound intellectual. The best part is you don’t even have to read them, no one remembers what they wrote.
6. Like sports? Great. Now breathe in and breathe out and repeat: ok let me put this straight, women don’t catch sports signal. No, not even the women special sports. They DON’T. To them it’s just a piece of information that doesn’t make much sense. For them desperate housewives > (any sports possible). If you keep rubbing it in their face, well… please read the topic again or else you can try to make her like it.
7. Conversation and debate are two different things: women don’t like to be corrected all the time when they get the facts wrong, which happens most of the time. The trick is to act like nothing happened. Your job is to nod to it whenever possible between two words. Talk facts and you will have them go zzzz on you faster than you can say ‘go’. Watch out for sentences starting with ‘you know what I think...’
These tips should see you through in a conversation easily. Rest depends on your personality and how you carry yourself. Don’t worry, she will tell you that from her actions/ reactions. Try not to overstretch your welcome with a female to avoid creeping her out and things should be fine. Let words flow, cheers!

World's Sexiest Criminals

Sandra Avila Beltrán
This Mexican drug lord hailed from a family with strong ties to the underworld. She was exposed to the world of crime at a young age, and had several affairs with various cartel members. She even married two police officers who later got involved in the drug trade. After years of trying, the authorities finally mounted substantial evidence against Beltrán and arrested her in 2007 for money laundering and smuggling of illegal drugs.

Although she's behind bars now, this 50-year-old still ensures she looks just as good as she did back when she was seducing the biggest drug lords in Mexico. She even had a doctor sneak in a botox injection into prison recently! Now that's commitment!

Laura Zuniga

This 27-year-old hottie first rose to fame thanks to her triumph in a beauty pageant in Mexico. She was all set to represent her country in Miss International 2009. However, her arrest in December 2008 put a damper on her promising career. She was found to be in possession of $53,000 and a bunch of weapons. Till date, Zuniga claims her innocence and alleges that her then-boyfriend was trying to kidnap her and take her to Colombia and Bolivia. 

The authorities detained her for 40 days, but later released her as there was no concrete evidence against her. She's now trying to make a comeback into modelling. In fact, the 2011 Mexican film 'Miss Bala' is loosely based on her life!

Anna Chapman

We wouldn't blame you if you mistook this 30-year-old former Russian spy for a glamor model. After all, she is one now, and she's posed for some major magazines, including Maxim. Till 2010--when she was busted by the FBI--Chapman was the CEO of a real estate website in New York. However, there were many holes in her story, and the authorities soon figured out that everything wasn't on the up-and-up.

She was sent back to Russia in a swap deal with the United States, which included nine other Russian spies. She is now a big media personality in her homeland!

Mata Hari

This Dutch exotic dancer, who primarily operated during World War I, is one of the most celebrated female spies in history. Margaretha Geertruida Zelle aka Mata Hari was accused of spying for the Germans and was later executed by a French firing squad. Years after her passing, there have been many discoveries hinting at the fact that she was innocent. However, authorities of many countries had (apparently) stacked together a mountain of evidence against her.

Either way, she remains one of the most enigmatic--and beautiful--figures in modern espionage!

Simone Farrow

This Penthouse Pet recently made headlines after she was arrested for allegedly running an international drug ring. She was on the run before the authorities caught up with her in a cheap motel in Queensland, Australia. This blonde bombshell apparently used 20 aliases--the most famous one being Simone Starr--while operating underground. 

Farrow, who ran her drug trade from her Hollywood apartment, told reporters that she was constantly on the move because someone was out to kill her! However, police claim she had high-grade crystal methamphetamine packed in bath salt containers.

In an eggshell 
The chicken egg offers 13 essential nutrients — everything you need other than vitamin C. “Your body needs high-quality protein, choline, folate, iron and zinc, and the eggs provide all of this in abundance,” says Seetha Bhaskar, nutritionist, dietician and wellness expert. “What’s more, contrary to popular belief, it doesn’t have to be fattening. The average egg contains just about 80 calories.” Primarily consumed for its protein content, which helps muscle power and strength, vegetarians across the country have slowly started including eggs in their diet to make sure they get the right amount of protein. “The riboflavin content in eggs is another reason to have them, so is the presence of all nine essential amino acids and vitamin D,” adds Seetha. Eggs are also high in fibre and certain other minerals, which means they are great for hair, nails and skin. One can’t help but remember the popular jingle in the early years of Indian television by the National Egg Co-ordination Committee (NECC) that made the rounds — “Meri jaan, meri jaan, murghi ke ande.” This endeavour to encourage people to dig into their egg was a huge hit, and appropriately so. 

An eggy debate
There’s a constant debate about the consumption of only egg whites, as opposed to the whole egg, due to the cholesterol in the yolk. “Egg whites are good, no doubt, but have at least one egg yolk a day,” says Seetha. The reason? “The yolk contains choline, folate, lutein, zeaxanthin and vitamin D, along with almost half the egg’s protein content. These ingredients are good for your eyes and brain.”

However, the con lies in it’s cholesterol content — nearly 213 mg per yolk. Given that your daily cholesterol consumption should be less than 300 mg, it is a large amount to be taken in at one go. So restrict yourself to not more than one egg yolk a day and watch your cholesterol intake from other sources. 

Eggs are a mainstay of what bootylicious Hollywood star Megan Fox eats. They are the main source of protein in her diet. In fact, before the release of her film Jennifer’s Body, she told a television channel, “I eat Eggs Benedict every morning with breakfast.” She reportedly tucked into 30 gms of almonds, a good number of eggs and avoided grains during her preparations for her breakthrough film, Transformers.

There are two types of dressing: casual and power.
While the casual refers to jeans, shorts, chinos, and comfortable      t-shirts, power dressing is all about making a strong statement. Power dressing involves dressing to make an impact, to leaving your mark behind, to coming across as competent and authoritative and to perhaps even intimidate others. It is obvious to think how clothes can do all of the above. Well, the right clothes can. And we are here to help you get your power dressing wardrobe in order.

1. The fit

We cannot say this enough number of times. The fit of your clothes is of utmost importance. Get the fit right and half your battle is won. The fit has to be such that it enhances your assets and covers your fat areas. It should make you look leaner, taller and sharper. Wherever you get your clothes from, we suggest you never compromise on the fit.

2. A watch

Nothing makes a smart statement like a solid branded watch. An investment in a good watch of a reputable brand will never go to waste. If anything, it will add oodles of importance, and elegance to your personality. Buy a watch that fits your wrists and can be worn across occasions.

3. Brogue shoes

Your shoes will say a lot about the man you are. Therefore you must wear a smart pair. Brogue shoes look expensive, make a statement and are always in style. Invest in a pair of black brogues and your shoes are sure to leave their mark.

4. Ties and Cufflinks

If you think no one notices cufflinks and your tie is not of much importance to your entire power look, then you are thinking all wrong. A smart pair of cufflinks, and a well-woven, bright coloured tie will add a lot to your power look. Your suit without these is like a cake without cherry. And no one takes a cake without cherries seriously.

5. A briefcase

How can your power look be complete without a proper case? Boys carry backpacks. Men carry briefcases. Buy one that is smart, handy and purposeful. One in which you can carry your iPad and necessary files/documents with ease, without one fighting for space with the other.
Put all the above five elements together and you have the ultimate power look. A man, who wears these elements right, is sure to charm others with his charisma. He will ooze of authority and command respect. You can be all this too. All you have to do, is Power Dress.

Romantic Zodiac Sing

Discover the romantic side in you

So, what if Valentine's Day is over? The season of love continues as love never dies. Discover the romantic side in you with your zodiac sign. Go all romantic and sweep your partner of their feet. Make your partner fall in love with you all over again...

When in love, you don a pair of rose-tinted glasses and the world is a magical place for you. The idea of romance captivates you and you ignore all else to be near your beloved. Candlelight dinners, soft music, slow dances, late night walks hand in hand by the light of the moon on remote windswept beaches - everything is possible, and it does not stop there, Aries will profess undying love for their beloved - a promise they are most likely to keep. 

Taureans are family-oriented people and enjoy spending time with loved ones. Strong believers in fidelity and stable relationships, you can be romantic, attentive, tender, and affectionate. Rarely feeling the temptation to stray, you can be quite possessive and can indeed get jealous if your partner's attention wavers. The romance with your partner is something that will be of constant interest and is unlikely to die even when you settle down to the routines of married life. 

Gemini : Anyone romantically involved with you, even for a short while, is likely to find you affectionate, interesting, adventurous and a fun person to be with, but your fickle, almost uncaring attitude will manage to break many hearts before you finally settle down. You may be a notorious flirt, but it will be wonderful coming home to someone who has stood by you through all the highs and lows. 

Cancerians are continually pulled into romance with those who are quite opposite to you in nature. You are strongly attracted to people who are confident, strong and successful. Although you fall in love all the time, your introvert nature and your uneasiness in disclosing your true feelings makes many of these affairs one-sided.

Leos have a gregarious personality easily standing out in a crowd, always the centre of attention at social gatherings. You are often loud and brash and people often take offence to that. If your big ego doesn't get the better of you, you can be a warm and considerate person. You are a lover with style, wooing your beloved in the most elegant manner. You wine and dine them, shower expensive gifts and roll out the red carpet all the way.

Not the most passionate of signs, a Virgo's love life is rarely turbulent or stormy. You are not the kind who likes to cuddle and make a public display of affection but can be quite romantic in your own way. Your style of courtship includes sending a never ending stream of flowers and going to romantic dinners at quiet and elegant places.

Emotional relationships are based on equal give and take. Librans tend to be involved in a number of affairs and sometimes their affection and friendship is misunderstood as something quite different. Librans like to have friends come over frequently for meals and parties; being good hosts, they ensure guests have a relaxed and comfortable time.

Scorpions are among the best lovers, instinctively knowing what your partner wants. You are intense and passionate and none of your lovers will ever forget you. You will sweep many off with your magnetic charm. You will rarely distinguish between a passing fancy and true love. For you, it will always be a passionate involvement.

Although affectionate and loving, Sagittarians are not apt to be too demonstrative. Not much cuddling, showering of gifts, or saying it with roses - something that may be misconstrued as lack of warmth. However, you will make it exciting enough for your beloved. Bungee jumping, mountain climbing, horse riding, going to exotic destinations... all this you will do with your partner.

You have an ardent and incurable romantic yearning for true love, which is put under check by Saturn -- the stern planet of discipline. It commands you to be calm, practical and serious. Nevertheless, love for a stable home and loyalty towards the spouse are your primary concerns. Man or woman, Capricorns love their home, but they are reverent about family ties -- be these their own or the ones created with the partner.

Once in love, you will try to make everything perfect for your partner. You will accommodate compromise and adapt even if you find that person is not exactly the ideal match you imagined him or her to be. Your approach to love and marriage is logical and intellectual, loving with your mind, as well as your eyes.

In the world of romance, you crave fairytales, being more in love with the idea of love than being in love itself. You can be unnecessarily suspicious and jealous, and this might cause a lot of heartache. The most important ingredient you bring to a relationship is love. You are gentle, sensitive, and a romantic through and through, valuing fidelity in a marriage and will be kind and affectionate to your spouse.
