One of my favorite sites to surf for binge-watching movies, shows, etc. is Youtube and then Fmovies because the best part of the sites is that you can watch almost anything here, and all the movies and shows are readily available here that too free.

The second best to recommend is Netflix because that is also one of the most interesting places to be at.

The show revolves around them and how this couple – Wanda and Vision hide their true identity as superheroes from the people of Westview and live like a normal couple.

Anatomy of a Scandal

If you are a fan of limited or miniseries like me then you should go for this one. Although the reviews aren’t that good about the show of how misleading it is or how poor the script is. But I personally enjoyed my time with this one. This show is for the ones who enjoy drama. I found it obvious and predictable at times but there is no harm to give it a try. This is a one-time watch series and falls into the category of psychological thriller, and legal drama. As it is a limited series so the number of episodes is 6 only, each of duration around 40 to 45 minutes. The cast is Michelle Dockery who is known for Burnt by the Sun, Downtown Abbey, and many such; Rupert Friend, Sienna Miller, and Naomi Scott. The show is written by David E.

The whole story revolves around the angel – Lucifer, who is handsome and powerful and was cast out of heaven for his rebellious nature. Bored out of hell, the devil decides to come back to earth, and starts a new life where he runs a nightclub and inadvertently becomes a consultant for the LAPD. The Lucifer TV show is based on the comic written by Mike Carey, which spun off from Neil Gainman’s, The Sandman. It’s a loose adaptation. You definitely crack up at the punchlines. The delivery of the dialogues and comic timing is equally good. The show is mystery, comedy drama and urban fantasy genre. It is suitable for the audiences 14 and above.

The Boys is full of action, drama, dark comedy, satire, action, and superhero fiction. It’s based on the comic book of the same name by Garth Ennis and Darick Robertson. This was originally published by DC Comics. The rest should be discovered by you, so I leave it here with the IMDb rating of 8.7 but just remember one thing the audience for The Boys is 18+, so make sure of that you are one of the suitable audience before watching the series.

Locke & Key

The series revolves around a family moving to a home with some supernatural mysteries to unravel involving a set of mysterious keys. The series varies in the tone and quality. It has still a lot of potential and a lot to discover and is yet to open which you can find out in the second season as well. This show is here to captivate its viewers more and stick till the end. The top cast includes –  Darby Stanchfield, Connor Jessup, Jackson Robert Scott, Emilla Jones, and Petrice Jones.

Fashion means being fun and quirky. But being fashionable in college is not the easiest job to be, don’t you agree? Then again it is so hot out there to slay your game.

Do you also think that comfort and fashion could not go along? Well, if you do not feel comfortable in what you are wearing, then it will be reflected too. It will look as if you are being awkward or shy all the time, thereby resulting in low confidence.

Who wants that, right? So be comfortable, especially in summers with your fashion game on point. Now you might be wondering how?

Therefore, do not worry, we have got you covered with our 10 tips to beat the heat keeping in mind your fashion needs.

1. Wearing Bright Colours

In this contemporaneous world, wearing bright colours is never out of fashion. That too in the summer, scorching heat. Wearing bright and light colours will help stay in fashion and as well as beat the summers.

2. Choose comfort clothes over blingy outfits

Fashion not only suggests looking cool and being pretty, but the main aspect of fashion is being comfortable. Choosing comfortable clothes not only at home but even outdoors works. That can be an overall casual and seamless look. Whereas blingy outfits could be suffocating.

3. Switching to Airy Fabrics this summer

Wearing light, flowy, and airy fabrics could be the best saviour for the summers for you. Cotton absorbs sweat and hence is preferable to wear in summers. You can also go for rayon or linen as well. There are a variety of designs and good materials available both offline and online for you to pull off in this humid weather. Shorts, skirts, Bermudas, baggy jeans and dresses that are now in trend can be one of the exceptional fits for summers that you can find in the right fabrics for you.

4. Wearing Shades wherever you go

Carrying shades should be a mandate for you to wear. Just kidding, not a mandate, but a necessity for summers. Shades and summers go hand in hand. So use shades/sunglasses in summers to keep the harmful ultraviolet rays away from your eyes.

5. Mixing Colours, Mixing Trends

You can always pair light with one solid-coloured piece. Remember that your colour palette should be nude. But you can keep experimenting with mixing nude shades with solid colours, they will give you a great contrast, and overall a good look for the summers.

6. Baggy clothes or loose fitted clothes

If you think that those loose clothes of yours are of no use, then you might be wrong here. Baggy clothes or loose clothes are in trend now and are going to be there for a long time because of the ease and comfort they bring about. This kind of style is breathable and you can go creative with it. They will make the heat bearable for you to enjoy summer wholeheartedly.

7. Printed Outfits Saving the Day

Well, printed outfits can never go out of style. In the summer, they can become your best friends. Floral prints, polka dots are easily the best and help you save the day. There are kurtas, shirts, and cute tops available in the same prints.

8. Hats as one of the accessories

Hats should be part of your attire whenever stepping out. It could go well with your dresses, or even with shirts and trousers. So consider hats as one of the necessary accessories that you are wearing besides neckpieces.

Be updated with what’s latest but do not forget to be yourself because that is the most important detail of fashion and that is being you.

7 things to check before taking up a PG

Taking up a PG or a hostel for the first time is both amazing and scary. Some people are in love with the idea of living independently, while some come to a PG because of college or work and it’s only later that they start loving it. Whatever the case may be, it’s always important to have a good, well-facilitated PG if you want your PG days to be a good experience.

So how do you actually go about finding a decent place for yourself to live in? You check online or ask some contacts, pick up a few options, visit the flats and check them for facilities and looks (or whatever your preference is), strike a deal, pay the rent and the humongous deposit amount, and shift in. Easy peasy!

Well, picking up the right PG is a very tricky task. You could visit once and think everything is fine, but once you shift, you start experiencing all the problems. You need to be very careful and pay attention to all the big and small details before moving into a PG. It’s about comfort, after all. It’s true that rented and shared accommodation could never feel like home, but now that you have to live in one, why not suit yourself in the best way you can?

Here’s a list of things to check before taking a PG. I noted these down when I was in one and was facing all the problems.

#1 Water
First thing, check the drinking water facilities- whether the PG has an RO or uses water from packaged bottles. If it uses direct tap water, it’s a no right away! Otherwise, check the RO machine if it functions properly or if the bottles have clean water.

Then, check the availability of water for other purposes. Check the medium of water supply- whether they have 24*7 access to water/submersible, or whether they depend on the municipality’s water supply that is available just 2 times a day for a limited time. Check that the water is not salty, smelly or unclean.

Trust me, water is one thing you can’t compromise with. I lost half my hair washing them with salty tap water.

#Electricity
You can’t live without electricity- you just can’t. I know people who start panicking (not sulking, actually getting anxious) when the power supply is cut off due to any reason- I am one of them! And the thing is that every time power goes off, I start worrying about all the horrible things that could happen, like my phone running out of battery or having no access to water because I couldn’t turn on the motor.

Before you move into a PG, get an idea on how often the power goes off in the area, how well the invertor works, and how many units of power the devices (especially AC or cooler) consume (as that would directly impact the bill). 

Check the wiring- make sure there are no loose ends or any chance to get hit by current or have short-circuits. 

#3 Food & Kitchen

  • Check the taste of the food. See whether it’s too spicy, oily or sugary. Make sure the curry is not watery and so on.
  • Check the menu. Make sure they provide nutritious food.
  • The raw items they use- whether the products are branded or loose, their quality
  • Check the containers and shelves where they store the groceries and veggies. Usually, there’s a lot of unclean places involved.
  • Check how hygienically they cook. In my old PG, they use to prepare the dough on the slab itself.
  • Check the dishwashing area to see if it’s kept clean
  • Check the facility and resources available for cooking, like stove, utensils, grinder, etc.
  • If you’re a non-vegetarian, ask whether they provide/allow non-vegetarian food in the PG.

#4 Nature/Environment/Neighbourhood/Locality
Well, when I first took a PG, I was lucky that it was in a beautiful society. I had a park right in front of the house, and that park became an essential part of my lifestyle. My room had a balcony. The neighbours were all decent, though it wasn’t easy to spot people every day. There was greenery in the society.

It was a gated society, so it was safer than the rest of the places. But there was one disadvantage involved- the gates of the society closed at 11 pm, so if I ever had to come late, I could only come in through the main gate, which was kilometres away. I had to walk outside the gate sometimes as cabs would arrive there instead of coming inside 

#5 Shops/facilities- banks, gym, ATM
Now, coming to the most basic requirements and their availability, it is very important to have shops nearby. I was unlucky I had to walk a long way for the basic grocery items, and take an auto for anything more than that. When you move in to a PG, make sure you have all the amenities nearby, at least the availability of daily necessities like milk, soap, etc.

#6Transport connectivity
Unless you have your own vehicle, not having transport connectivity at your doorstep would be an everyday torture. Look for a place that has availability of shared autos, e-rickshaws, etc. 

#7 Space, infra, facilities, furnishing, Wi-Fi, washing machine, etc.

Now coming to the basic features of the PG- the infrastructure and the facilities provided. These are the features which you can choose or compromise with according to your preference and budget- the look and space of the room, the furniture provided or available for use, appliances like washing machine, TV, geyser, fridge etc.

Make sure the PG provides good Wi-Fi because you would most certainly need it.

Make a list of things that you would like to be provided by the PG beforehand- mattress, pillow, bed sheet, table chair, etc- and when you visit the PG, check if you will be getting all those.

So, here’s your checklist. You’re now all set to go PG hunting!

5 Fashion Tips Every Student Should Know

Fashion should always be fun, but when you’re in school and have limited time to shop, it can be hard to find clothes that reflect your personality while also staying comfortable and versatile enough to mix and match with other outfits. Fortunately, there are plenty of fashion tips every student can use to look great without investing too much time or money. Here are five fashion tips every student should know.

1) Make sure you have the basics

There’s a saying that says you can be beautifully dressed but poorly prepared. While that may sound contradictory, it actually illustrates an important point: always make sure your wardrobe is full of staples that are versatile and dependable. Your dresser should never be empty; instead, it should always be stocked with items you know how to mix and match with ease.

2) Look at your wardrobe with a fresh set of eyes

Start by getting rid of clothes you no longer wear. Over time, your style can evolve and change, so keep an eye out for things that don’t fit you anymore—in terms of both size and taste. It’s time to clear out everything you know won’t work for your new semester wardrobe.

3) Dress for your body shape

Don’t try to fit into something you don’t naturally look good in. Pay attention to your body shape and dress accordingly, be it skin-tight leather pants or a flowing A-line skirt. Find what works for you, and stick with it! If you’re unsure of your shape, take an honest look at yourself in a full-length mirror. What do you see? Are there any areas that need improvement? Now is not the time to be shy; embrace those curves (or lack thereof) and own them! If there are certain parts of your body that aren’t as developed as others, focus on building up those muscles through exercise rather than trying to hide them under baggy clothes.

4) Have an active social life

College is a fantastic place to expand your social circle, but it’s also incredibly easy to get caught up in your coursework and end up isolated on campus. To prevent yourself from being socially ostracized, make sure you spend time with friends at least once per week and attend any events that interest you. Making an effort to meet new people will help you stay well-rounded as a student.

5) Dress to impress yourself

There are lots of ways to save money in college, but that doesn’t mean you should scrimp on your wardrobe. Spend what you feel comfortable spending on clothes, as long as it fits into your budget and allows you to buy a few new things every month or so. Your appearance is important and will help you feel more confident in class—and make a good impression at interviews, too!

Jitendra Kejriwal of sonear ply talks on “How to avoid banking fraud”

If you’re like most people, banking fraud isn’t something you usually think about on a daily basis – until it happens to you. Unfortunately, the world is full of people who would love to take advantage of you and your finances, so it’s essential to know how to avoid banking fraud/banking fraud cases and what to do if you become the victim of it. We talked to the philanthropist Jitendra Kejriwal, a well-known philanthropist and consultant of Sonear ply industries and prepared this guide that will help you to get the insight needed to stay safe when managing your money!

Don’t share your account information

When you are opening an account, don’t provide your PIN, account number or bank routing information over email or social media. It may seem easy enough to do when someone asks, but scammers will send official-looking emails and post on Twitter and Facebook that try to trick you into giving them confidential information. Remember: If it seems too good (or bad) to be true, it probably is. Don’t share your personal information online without knowing exactly who you are dealing with!

Be aware of what you’re signing up for

Before you sign up for any new product or service, review all of your options and be aware of what you’re getting yourself into. When filling out forms, do not supply information that’s personally identifiable like your Social Security number or bank account numbers (these should be provided when completing a transaction). Bank accounts can easily be traced back to individuals, putting them at risk for identity theft. Protect your personal data by staying cautious and knowing what you’re getting into.

Have a Password on Your Mobile Phone

Mobile phone banking has become incredibly popular in recent years. Many people like being able to manage their finances from their mobile phones, but it’s important that you protect your information at all times. You should never use an ATM if it is not equipped with a security camera, and you should always have your four-digit PIN code memorized when using your card or cell phone app at an ATM.

Know Your Limits

It’s critical that you know how much money is in your account at all times. You should have multiple checks on your bank balances to make sure there aren’t fraudulent transactions, and you should be wary of transactions that are significantly different from what they usually are. For example, if someone usually charges Rs100 a day for lunch but suddenly charges Rs 3000 one day, it might mean someone has stolen their card number.

Check Your Statements/Online Activity Often

It may seem like overkill, but scrutinizing your monthly bank statements and credit card charges is one of the most effective ways to spot fraudulent activity. Setting up automatic notifications for your accounts via your bank or credit card company can also help you flag anything out of place before it gets out of hand.

Meet the Blind DU student who is a national level cricket player

Md Shahrukh, a first year student of English Honours in Sri Venkateswara College, Delhi university has an inspiring story where he has conquered many downfalls and setbacks. He lost his vision at the age of 6 while watching his brothers play cricket when a ball hit him in his left eye. On speaking to Aapka Times, he says that everyone thought his life was ruined after he went blind, his family and his neighbours. He continues that his mother, who he labels as a “warrior” found out about National Association for the Blind and enrolled him there.

https://modafiniladviser.com/buy-modafinil-usa/



Shahrukh is a national level Chess player, having played on the national stage twice and even getting the chance to go international but wasn’t able to take it due to some issues. He is also a national level cricket player for the Delhi team where he plays as an all rounder. His life has not been without hardships, as he talks about how he was rusticated when he was in class 9th and had to spend a year without school. He tells us that he felt very down during this period and turned to cricket and chess as a release and started pursuing it.

Shahrukh, who is also focused on the academic side of things tells us about how he had a very low attendance because his school was two and a half hours away and his family couldn’t pay for the travel everyday. He never told his teachers about this and just said he was sick or didn’t feel like coming. He also tells us that he couldn’t pursue law due to financial constraints.

On speaking about cricket, he says that even though it was the reason he went blind, he never stopped playing it and it is now one of the reasons he is where he is. He tells us that all his life people have told him that he wouldn’t be able to do something but he has been able to live independently and manage regardless of his setbacks. He has excelled in both cricket and chess and he has never let anything hold him back.

According to Shahrukh, the idea that you can’t do something is simply not true. He says that with enough effort we can achieve anything. When asked about his hobbies, he says that he likes to write shayaaris, use social media, and is trying to start a blog and a youtube channel.

He was kind enough to share one of his shayaaris with Aapka Times, which he says is how he lives his life. It says “Jab Manzil rah dikhane se inkaar kar de, Jab zindagi Ek nahin dhokhe kai baar kar de,Tab Tu kismat ko dosh Na Dena ai yaar, Bas khud ke kadam par Ek bar aitbaar kar le.” This roughly translates to when the way is not clear and life betrays you many times, do not blame faith, but put faith in yourself and your faiths. Words by this young man to inspire all of us and inspire us to fight the idea that we cant do it.

Faisal Abidi shares 4 Ways to Protect Yourself from Digital Fraudsters

The digital age has brought along both opportunities and risks, and it seems that the bad guys are taking advantage of both in order to target innocent people who are simply trying to live their lives. If you want to protect yourself from digital fraudsters, scammers, and spammers, use these four tips shared by Faisal Abidi of RNF Technologies to your advantage as often as possible. You never know what’s around the corner!

1) Use 2-Step Verification
To protect yourself from digital fraudsters, scammers, and spammers on social media—as well as any other email accounts you might have—it’s a good idea to enable two-step verification. When you enable two-step verification, in addition to your password (which you provide at login), you will be required to enter a code that is texted or emailed directly to your phone number before logging in.

2) Sign up for text alerts
You can protect yourself from scammers, spammers, and fraudsters by signing up for text alerts via your wireless carrier. Many companies offer SMS or text-message warnings when your account is being used in a suspicious way, such as when someone is trying to access it without permission. If you set it up properly, you’ll receive an alert every time one of these unusual transactions occurs.

3) Turn on two-factor authentication
To protect yourself from digital fraudsters, it’s important to use two-factor authentication wherever possible. Two-factor authentication requires users to log in with their username and password, plus a special access code. There are a few different ways you can achieve two-factor authentication—it’s most common with Internet banking, but many other websites support it as well. If you don’t already have two-factor authentication turned on, now is a good time to get started.

4) Disable SMS Forwarding
If your phone is connected to your Facebook account, you can disable SMS forwarding by going into your Account Settings. Under Mobile, uncheck the box that says Messages and click Save Changes. This will ensure that scam artists don’t have access to both of your communication channels.
