As monsoon is just around the corner, many like to enjoy the rain dance in this season. But if you are worried about your skin, here are some simple beauty tips that will help to protect your skin. • Apply sunscreen lotion to protect your skin. Before applying makeup, first apply a layer of light moisturiser and then apply a coat of sunscreen.• As you will be in touch with water, avoid applying a very creamy foundation and concealer on your face, else it will smudge. • Apply a good quality of water-proof foundation. • Choose 2-in-1 stain product to colour your lips and cheeks. To apply it right, take a bit of lip stain onto two fingers and then tap it on your cheeks. Start in the middle, patting outwards so that you get a rosy blush that looks natural.• If you want to bronze your face, choose a oil-free product. This can stand water and won't wear off easily. Go for a shade that looks like a natural tan, dust it on your eyelids, a little above your cheekbones, on the forehead and the chin. By Lizitha
The researchers revealed that playing video game a day after reactivating the intrusive memories that you want to get rid of may reduce their occurrence over time. The researchers conducted two experiments. They examined the participants by allowing them to view films that contained scenes of traumatic content (for example, footage highlighting the dangers of drunk driving) as a way of experimentally inducing intrusive memories. After 24 hours that are asked to return to the lab. In the first experiment, half of the participants had their memories of the film reactivated by viewing selected stills from the film footage, followed by a 10-minute filler task, and then 12 minutes of playing the computer game Tetris. The other participants completed only the filler task and then sat quietly for 12 minutes. The researchers concluded that participants who had their memories reactivated and played Tetris experienced significantly fewer intrusive memories in a diary over the next week than the participants who came to the lab and simply sat quietly for the equivalent period of time. The results were published in the journal Psychological Science. By Lizitha
Group photos of mostly new recruits of banned terror group Hizbul Mujahideen have gone viral on the social media in Jammu and Kashmir. The photos alarmed the security establishment in the state, particularly because it had recently compiled a list of nearly three dozen missing young men, who were feared to have joined militant ranks. Sources said all the men posing in the photos, wearing military outfit and brandishing kalashnikovs, are Kashmiri, signaled a dangerous threat to the Valley. The authenticity of the photographs is yet to be verified but it has certainly worried the government authorities. The photos have come to light at a time when security in Jammu and Kashmir has been beefed up following reports of militants planning to target the ongoing Amarnath Yatra. According to reports, the Indian Army has launched Operation Shiva comprising 7,500 jawans to provide security to Amarnath pilgrims following an Intelligence Bureau reports of terror threat. The Amarnath Yatra has been on the radar of terrorist groups for long and every year there is an intelligence alert ahead of the pilgrimage. Sources said intelligence agencies have received inputs regarding Hizbul Mujahideen looking to carry out terror strikes during the 59-day long Amarnath Yatra. Jammu and Kashmir Police had recently blamed Hizbul Mujahideen for attacks on the telecom sector in Sopore which killed three people and injured many others. An unknown militant group 'Lashkar-e-Islam' had earlier issued warnings to phone companies to shut their operations and the landlords to dismantle mobile phone towers erected on their properties. It had blamed the telecommunication network in the state for facilitating arrest and killings of militants. However, officials had then said that the attacks were carried out by Hizbul Mujahideen and the terror unit was using Lashkar-e-Islam's name to confuse the security agencies.
According to a recent study, the researchers revealed that consuming food at restaurants end up consuming about 200 additional calories than eaten at home. "People who ate at full-service restaurants consumed significantly more cholesterol per day than people who ate at home," said researcher professor Ruopeng An from University of Illinois. "This extra intake of cholesterol, about 58 milligrams per day, accounts for 20 percent of the recommended upper bound of total cholesterol intake of 300 milligrams per day," he added. Fast-food and restaurant diners consumed about 10 grams more total fat, and 3.49 grams and 2.46 grams, respectively, more saturated fat than those who dined at home. "The American Heart Association recommends limiting the amount of saturated fats one eats to less than 5 to 6 percent of one's total daily calories. That means that if one needs about 2,000 calories a day, less than 120 calories, or 13 grams, should come from saturated fats," the researcher said. The study, reported in the European Journal of Clinical Nutrition, analysed eight years of nationally representative data from the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey, collected from 18,098 adults living in the US.

A new study performed by researchers from Brigham and Women's Hospital revealed that women sports persons with menstrual cycle abnormalities may be at greater risk of bone stress injuries and fractures. The researchers revealed that women with symptoms known as the "female athlete triad", a spectrum of symptoms that include low energy availability, menstrual cycle abnormalities, and low bone mineral density, are at an increased risk of bone loss."Any combination of these conditions can lead to premature bone loss in females," said lead study author and orthopaedic surgeon Elizabeth Matzkin from Brigham and Women's Hospital, Boston, US. The findings showed that both athletes and non athletes participating in any sports and exercise can develop symptoms of the female athlete triad. They also found that female athletes diagnosed with poor nutrition or low energy availability are two to four times more likely to sustain a sports-related injury. "Proper nutrition and energy balance are key to staying healthy in athletes of all ages. But maximizing bone health when you are young is paramount to your bone health later in life," Matzkin said. The study was published in the Journal of the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons (JAAOS). By Lizitha
Lower level of testosterone not only affects your sex life, but it also shows impact on your health. According to a research led by the researchers from George Washington University (GW), it was revealed that lower testosterone level in men could lead to depression and has opened the possibility for depression. To find out the fact, the researchers involved 200 adult men, aged 20-77, with a mean age of 48 years old, who were referred for borderline total testosterone levels between 200 and 350 ng/dL (nanograms per decilitre). From the analysis, they found that a total of 56% of the participants have depression or depressive symptoms. "In an era where more and more men are being tested for lower levels of testosterone - there is very little data about the men who have borderline low testosterone levels," said Dr. Irwig, associate professor of medicine and director of the Center for Andrology at the GW School of Medicine and Health Sciences. "We felt it important to explore the mental health of this population." The findings, published online in the Journal of Sexual Medicine. By Lizitha

Chief Minister of the youngest state in India, Telangana – Kalvakuntla Chandrasekhar Rao aka KCR, who uses a chopper for his tours in the state will now tour in a 5 Crore Mercedes Benz bus. A bullet-proof Mercedes Benz bus has been purchased for Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao for his tours of Telangana. The cost to the state is five Crores. The bus was brought this morning from Chandigarh to Hyderabad, the capital of Telangana. It will be managed by the state transport corporation. The bus is fitted with state-of-the-art technology and can withstand any type of attack. According to a Times Now report, it has an inbuilt bedroom, rest-room, a small meeting hall, internet and stairs to the rooftop of the vehicle. Rao has been primarily using a helicopter for his tours in the state - be it for site inspections, launch of programs or lying of foundation stones. The 'vanity' bus drew sharp criticism from the opposition on Friday, who termed it as a waste of money. "KCR is spending lot of money on a bulletproof bus to tour the state...before the election also he had toured the state. Why does he need a bus, that too worth five crores? The money should have been used to help the poor in the state," said senior Congress leader V Hanumantha Rao. However, the TRS is condemning the comments and claimed them as rumors. "Our Chief Minister will also be travelling in a state road transport corporation bus just like the common people of the state," a spokesperson in the Chief Minister's office told media. "It is not really a luxury bus. It doesn't even have a bed inside. It only has 12 seats for staff from the Chief Minister's Office to travel with him and hold meetings while on the move," he said. “The Chief Minister - KCR as he is popularly known- reportedly said he did not want a bedroom on-board, opting instead to use the space for a work area. The bus has easy stair access from within the roof so the Chief Minister can make public appearances”. He is expected to use the bus for the first time from tomorrow as he launches a tour to start a massive tree plantation drive
Earlier, there used to be a dictator called King Jong Un, who killed people doesn’t sing for him. There are many others in Indian history as well who embraces the tyranny. Now, is Delhi witnessing another dictator in making? Even after completing 100 days in Power, Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal has shown no progress in fulfilling his promises, which he made during the election time. While Delhi lists as the most polluted city in the world, the Aam Aadmi Party founder is enjoying in Air Conditioners. He is not bothered even if the power bill reaches six digits. Getting vexed with the leader’s behavior, a rebel member of Arvind Kejriwal's party conducted a press conference to share his criticism on the CM. However, he was left without any electricity in his office seconds before he began a press conference. Pankaj Pushkar, one of the 67 legislators from Mr Kejriwal's party in the 70-seat Delhi Assembly, alleged that the power cut for his office was orchestrated to impede his interaction with reporters. He did not, however, hold back on a litany of complaints. "The ethos of the party is in serious danger", he said, adding that he was forced to voice his concerns publicly after being refused an appointment by Mr Kejriwal and his deputy, Manish Sisodia, for over a month. That could be because Mr Pushkar is part of a rebel faction within the Aam Aadmi Party headed by leaders Prashant Bhushan and Yogendra Yadav, who have accused Mr Kejriwal of expunging dissent - including theirs - from all party fora. In evidence of his claim that the Aam Aadmi Party has deviated wildly from its commitment of providing down-to-earth, frills-free and transparent governance, Mr Pushkar referenced a television ad for the Delhi government that has aired to much criticism, not least because of its sexist depiction of its housewife protagonist. The ad, which played in heavy rotation, was also slammed for sneaking around a Supreme Court ban on politicians featuring in publicly-funded promotions for the government -the ad does not show Mr Kejriwal but mentions him with uninhibited frequency. Today, the opposition said that Mr kejriwal's government has budgeted a massive 500 core rupees for government advertising and promotion over the next year, as compared to Rs. 23 crores last year. As evidence of his claim that the AAP now functions exactly like the traditional parties it has criticized, Mr Pushkar cited an electricity bill of nearly a lakh for the Chief Minister's residence for the last two months. AAP has said the bulk of the costs were incurred for sections that are used by Mr Kejriwal as an at-home office space.
