KFC is one of the leading fast food chains in India. In March, the fast food chain launched the 5-in-1 Meal Box to provide a complete meal at an affordable price to their customers. But with a step forward, KFC has tied up with a digital agency, Blink Digital to launch ‘watt a box’. The box will have 5-in-1 meal with a built in power bank to charge a phone.

Delicious Fried Chicken with Phone Charging

This special box will contain features such as USB, micro-USB and Lightning connections — and even includes the cables — to charge your mobile devices with delicious 5 meals. The box comes with magnetic flaps and contains your usual meal but has a power bank integrated on its side. The best thing is the power bank is removable, so you can carry it along. The power bank claims to have a 6,100mAh battery.

The fast-food chain has launched this limited-edition “Watt-A-Box” packages in Delhi and Mumbai. Most of these boxes are up for grabs through an online contest, although some are being gifted to customers at select stores. If you are one of the lucky winners of a Watt a Box, you’ll not only get some truly unhealthy (but simply amazing) grub, but a 6,100mAh battery with all the connections — and cables — you’ll need to charge your favorite device.

Do It satisfy the claims??

According to the test conducted by BGR this Box fall short for the claims made. They tested on iPhone 5s with the battery pack and gained 17 percent after half-an-hour. Not terrible, until you factor in that the battery bank was completely drained during that time. After recharging it to 100 percent, they attempted to charge a Redmi Note 3, but only managed to get 7 percent before the battery died again.

Clearly the box doesn’t fulfill its claims but can charge your phone at least till the time you finish your yummy food. So, as unlikely as it may seem, the best portable battery banks probably aren’t coming in KFC containers. But, that doesn’t make the promotion any less cool.

Besides, this isn’t the first time these fast food Brands—Pizza Hut, KFC, and Taco Bell—has tried such innovations. Back in September last year, KFC came up with the ‘Don’t Panic Man’ campaign in Romania, which rewarded people with a free meal for coming to a KFC store when social media platforms were down. KFC is not the only one to toy with such marketing campaigns. Pizza Hut came up with a limited edition box in Hong Kong that converted into a projector for smartphones. McDonald’s had launched a special edition of its Happy Meal boxes in Sweden that could be converted into cardboard VR headsets. Coca Cola too had a similar cardboard VR headset one could make from its 12-pack cartons.

So you never know what is next in store for these Brands to attract their customers.

If anybody tried “Watt a Box”, they are welcome to share their experiences with us. Do comment below and we are all ears to listen to your feedback.

People have tumbled down the steps of the Taj Mahal, fallen off bridges and been electrocuted in an effort to take the perfect selfie.

In fact, Selfies have killed more people than sharks this year. According to media reports, at least 12 people have been killed in selfie-related incidents so far in 2015 and many more injured, while only eight have died as a result of shark attacks.

The latest selfie-related death was of a 66-year-old Japanese tourist, who reportedly suffered a heart attack while posing with a selfie stick at the Taj Mahal in India last week. Other deaths have been caused by distracted photo-takers falling off cliffs, crashing their cars & being hit by trains. In Russia, a teenager shot himself in the head, posing for a selfie, few weeks back. In another incident two men in the Urals were killed while taking a selfie of themselves holding a hand grenade with the pin pulled out.

Some governments have introduced measures to reduce the risk of accident. The selfie craze has proven so dangerous that officials in Australia had to fence off a 16-storey high rock that looks like a wedding cake because people wouldn’t stop taking selfies on it, despite fears of its collapse any time.

“It’s all about me. It’s putting me in the frame. I’m getting attention and when I post that to social media, I’m getting the confirmation that I need from other people that I’m awesome,” lead researcher Jesse Fox told Reuters“You don’t care about the tourist attraction you’re destroying; you don’t care about annoying people in your social media feed … you’re not even thinking about the consequences of your actions, so who cares if you’re dangling off the side of the Eiffel Tower?”

The moral of the story seems to be not only that fatal shark attacks are far less common than you might think, but to think twice before you do something reckless in the hope the photo will win you some approval online.

As a part of the crowd funded Super Awesome Micro Project, two talented guys from Australia, Steve Sammartino and Raul Oaida built a functional car out of Lego bricks that runs on air. They used around 500,000 Lego bricks and 256 pistons to design this masterpiece. The car, from engine to seats, is made completely from the tiny bricks, with the exception of a few structural parts including wheels, tires, and gauges. According to an estimate they’ve dropped $60,000 on Lego bricks alone.

Forty Australian patrons funded the project after seeing a single tweet that Sammartino sent.

“We are building something that has not been built before. It is high tech, eco friendly, quirky, strange and very, very cool. Those involved can come to the launch party. An official page of ‘patrons’ will be developed on a .com address so the world will know those who made it a reality. We will launch it to the world via a video – a mini doco. But it will be real. People can come, see and touch it.” said Steve Sammartino in the Super Awesome Micro Project Prospectus.

The car was built in Romania and then shipped to an undisclosed location in Melbourne, which was not an easy task.

The car was significantly damaged during shipping,” Sammartino told an Australian podcast. “We were like, ‘Well it’s just Lego, we’ll snap the pieces back together,’ But it wasn’t that easy. The pieces were warped because it had gone across the Equator, pieces were freezing and heating up — it was worse than you’d think.

But they were able to patch those damages up, and now they’re taking the car to the streets but admit that they currently “drive it slow as are scared of giant lego explosion.” It uses four radial engines for power and can currently reach speeds up to 20mph.

Is this the Russian way of testing G-Force abilities? This kid has achieved every kid’s dream ever. He gets to the very top of swing and starts doing 360 degree spins at full speed. But it gets better: a man comes and starts to push him to limits. At one point he must be experiencing the G-Force. And the people in the background were just like “this boy does this every day”

In my country swings have chains. Damn I was robbed of my childhood!

“We fear things in proportion to our ignorance of them.” – Christian Nestell Bovee

Fear is the most basic human emotion that prevents us from living our greatest potential or following our hearts. Most of us have experienced this at one time or another. The fear of failing can cause us to do nothing, and therefore resist moving forward. But when we allow fear to stop our forward progress in life, we’re likely to miss some great opportunities along the way.

Countless successful people have mentioned that they experienced fear at least at some points in life. The ones that keep their fear under check make it to the next level.

Whatever it is that scares you, here are 5 ways to help you cope with your fear and anxiety:

Take Your Time

When you are flooded with fear it is almost impossible to think clearly. So first thing is you need to calm down. When you are relaxed you’ll feel better and be able to decide on the next move.

Face Your Fear

The best way to cope with you fear is to face it. If you panic one day getting into a lift, it’s best to get back into a lift the next day. Stand in the lift and feel the fear until it goes away. Whatever your fear, if you face it, it should start to fade.

Don’t Run After Perfection

Don’t feel like if you are not the best you are a failure. Many of us feel that our lives must be perfect. But you need to remember that bad days and setbacks will always happen, and it’s essential to remember that life is messy.

Talk About It

Sharing fears takes away a lot of their scariness. Talk to your friends, partner or an expert about your fear. It will help.

Believe In Yourself

You ARE enough. By your very nature of being here on this earth, you are enough. Avoid comparing yourself to others and really focus on being the very best that you can in your own journey.

So how do you fight your fear? What works best for you? Leave your opinion in comments.

Drinking-Water

How do you know if you’re drinking enough water? Experts say there’s an easy way to judge. If you’re not thirsty, your fluid intake is just right. Below are the five common myths about drinking water

MYTH-1 Drink Eight Glasses of water Each Day

According to scientists there is no clear benefit of drinking or sipping water all day long. So where does this myth comes from – We have no idea. Believe it or not, taking in too much water can have serious and even fatal consequences.

MYTH-2 Drinking Other Liquids is the Same as Drinking Water

Other beverages like coffee or soda are not water-equivalents. Actually coffee dehydrates your body. So you need to drink extra amount of water to compensate the after effects of coffee.

Myth 3: Drinking Lots of Water Helps Clear Out Toxins from our Body

Its not true at all. Kidneys filter out the toxins from our body which are then flushed out through the urine. But drinking extra water don’t improve the function of kidneys. Actually it puts more pressure on the kidneys and reduce their ability.

Myth 4: Drinking Lots of Water Makes your Skin Beautiful

Most common anti-ageing tips ig going H2O. Your body is already 60% water. So adding a few glasses will only have a limited effect. Fruits and Greens are equally essential. Just be normal don’t try to gulp excess amount of water.

Myth 4: Drinking Water Between Meals is Bad for Digestion

This has been passed down from generation to generation. However, there is no scientific evidence to indicate that it will affect the digestive process. At the most, it will probably fill you up and reduce your appetite for dinner. But besides that, go ahead and enjoy a glass of water with every meal

I bet the little girl will laugh after watching this video, I don’t understand how it’s “bad parenting” as some people are commenting under this video on YouTube, it’s called making the situation brighter and making jokes. This video has been posted on YouTube by Kathy sterner where her husband is lip syncing his daughter’s temper tantrum.

“My 6 year old daughter had been in her room wigging out for about an hour, and there was no talking her down. I was getting fed up, so my husband decided to lighten the mood. For the record, she’s not typically a beast child – she’s actually a pretty awesome little kid who was having a rough day.” said Mom, Kathy Sterner in video description.
