Male Grooming: Should you shave your armpits?

first_imgThis week Donegal Daily’s male grooming columnists from Maverick’s Barbershop discuss whether of not men should shave their armpits…Should a man shave his armpits? Simple question. And not an odd question if you think about it and one that gets thrown around the Maverick’s Barbershop the odd time!Half the population (women) already shave their armpits. So shouldn’t men shave their armpit hair as well? Doesn’t a shaved armpit have benefits? If it didn’t, why would women go through the ritual daily?Before we get started with the scientific reasoning behind shaving armpit hair – yes, there are experiments to prove my point – let’s begin with understanding why a man would ask such a question in the first place.Why would a man want to shave his armpit hair? >Armpit Hair And Sweat. There is circumstantial and somewhat vague evidence suggesting that shaving your armpit hair reduces sweating. While shaving your underarms won’t make your armpits cooler – or produce less sweat – the sweat stains on your clothes will be less pronounced.>Underarm Hair And Hygiene. The odour from sweat is caused by bacteria and the bacteria can multiply in the damp area of armpit hair – shaving the armpits results in less space for bacteria to breed. And increased effectiveness from your deodorant products.>The Aesthetics Of A Shaved Armpit: If you are an athlete or an underwear model – shaving your armpit hair would be of a professional advantage to you.Even if you are a regular guy – no one likes to see hair poking out from under your arms.>The Connection With Smell: There are widely circulated opinions that shaving armpit hair actually helps reduce a man’s body odour. Other studies show that a man’s confidence is lowered when he is aware of his own body odour. Which brings me back to my original question – Should a man shave his armpits to reduce body odour.We have come across two studies carried out on armpit hair and how the lack of it either creates or diminishes a man’s attractiveness. In summary the findings were as follows: The baseline results indicated that shaving armpit hair did have an effect on body odour – but it was minimal. More likely, other factors will affect how you smell to a much greater degree than whether you have hair in your armpits – your grooming routine, the food you eat, the beverages you consume, the regularity of your showers….The men with shaved arm pits had more confidence as they just felt they were feeling fresher for longer.Those men who believe they would be seen with their shirts off, be it their partner at home or at the beach, felt more confident and hygienic when they had their armpits trimmed.The benefits of shaving your armpits seem to be predominantly aesthetics. If you like the look and feel of it, if you feel more confident and more hygienic, then go for it! If you prefer to feel more natural and rugged then let them go free, it will be one less job to do!

Apple Hiring a Team to Build “the Future of Cloud Services”

first_imgTop Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hosting Tags:#cloud#news Related Posts A new job posting on the Apple website indicates the company is looking for the position of “Cloud Systems Software Engineer.” The job, first discovered by Apple Insider, is a full-time job at the company’s Cupertino campus.Apple says it’s looking for an engineer “who has built high-performance, scalable and extensible systems.” That engineer will join the team that is building “the future of cloud services at Apple!” That exclamation is from the original posting, which in a nod perhaps to some of the questions raised by our Mike Melanson about what exactly constitutes “the cloud” has now been expunged of all cloudy references, replaced with the word “Web.” Of course, the name change is more likely a response from the super-secretive Apple. Indeed, the listing – in either its original or altered form – gives very little detail about what Apple is up to with “the future of cloud services.” Or the future of Web services, as the case may be. Of course, Apple has offered “cloud services” for quite some time via MobileMe. But there has been much speculation, including a story in The Wall Street Journal, that the company will launch an enhanced version of MobileMe this year that will include cloud storage for photos, music, videos and so on. According to those reports, an updated MobileMe would give users the option to stream their digital content to their iPhones and iPads, eliminating the need for local memory on those devices.With the recent launch of the Amazon Cloud Drive and its ability to stream music, both Apple and Google are certainly feeling the pressure to make a similar service available.

The Editor’s Toolbox: Match Cuts

first_imgThe Match Cut is a timeless video editing technique that adds rhythm, flow, and style to any project. Let’s explore this eye-catching storytelling method.Top image via Sony PicturesThe match cut: Merging two separate scenes into a single seemingly fluid shot. It’s one of the most visually satisfying cuts available to filmmakers. It requires foresight, top-notch camera work, and an editor who knows what they’re doing. Celia Gomez recently released a supercut of films that have nailed the eye-catching match cut.The match cut is an extremely effective edit due to the rapid pacing that throws viewers into an entirely different scene in the blink of an eye. Super-fast-paced movies, like anything David Fincher makes or last year’s The Big Short, rely on these cuts to keep the film flying through space and time. The characters or objects in motion usually move from one end of the frame to the next as the edit happens mid-motion. Take this fun little match cut from The Graduate. It’s about as seamless as they come.Via MGMThe match cut is an excellent way to demonstrate your ability to plan and have a clear distinct vision for your work. Knowing how you will edit your video while you’re shooting is key when dealing with this type of work. Perhaps one of the most famous match cuts ever is in Lawrence of Arabia.Although the image isn’t technically the same, the idea of removing a small light source like a match and immediately replacing it with a shot of another light source (the sun) is pretty magnificent. The audio editing is crucial as well; without the sound of him blowing the match out, the silence of the sunrise wouldn’t be as effective.Some uses of this technique can imply a greater meaning or metaphor to your story, like the Psycho transition in the video above (her life escaping down the drain). But on a basic level, match cuts are an excellent way to change time and location in a way that feels stylish and effortless.Follow In These Editing FootstepsOne of the best filmmakers working today, Edgar Wright, makes use of this technique in order to amplify the comedy in his films. Working perfectly with his insanely fast-paced tones, every scene flows together in a rapid comedic burst of energy. This video essay released by Every Frame a Painting explains why this type of editing is crucial to today’s audience.For more video editing tips and tricks, check out these previous explorations into editing styles and methods:8 Essential Cuts Every Editor Should KnowCutting CommercialsCutting on the Blink: Editing Tips from Walter Murch12 Video Editing Cuts for Cutting a Documentary3 Stages of Editing a Corporate VideoThe Secrets to Using a Dissolve Transition Effectively What are some of your favorite examples of match cuts?

Police team was led into a well-planned trap

first_imgA six-member police team, headed by a Station House Officer (SHO), was led into “a well-executed and well-planned” trap on the road connecting Anantnag with Achabal in south Kashmir on Friday, resulting in the deaths of all on board the solitary vehicle in an ambush by militants.The team had been busy all day dealing with the deteriorating law and order situation in Anantnag town, sparked by the Arwani encounter where three Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) militants were trapped in nearby area. Sources said the trap was laid by LeT commander Bashir Lashkari, whose close aide and friend since 2015, Junaid Mattoo, 24, was trapped and living his last moments at the Arwani encounter site since Friday morning.“It was a revenge attack,” said Director General of Police S.P. Vaid.The police are investigating multiple dimensions of the attack, which lead to higher casualties for the police force, including costing the life of sub-inspector Feroz Dar.The militants, the police believe, knew SHO Dar and his team were travelling in a vehicle that was not bullet-proofed, and a well-guarded Rakshak vehicle. The police department had failed to provide a Rakshak to the Achabal Police Station.As the stone-pelting subsided, the team decided to travel back to the police station. “We are investigating to find out who passed on information [to the militants] about the movement of the vehicle at such a short notice,” said the officer.In fact, there was a mild stone-pelting on the vehicle near Thajiwar, which was otherwise peaceful. “The stone-pelting was intended to halt the vehicle. Indeed, the policemen got down to chase the stone-throwers. To their surprise, they faced a volley of bullets from all sides. It was premeditated and planned,” said the police officer. Sources said the nearby houses on the roadside were vacated by their inhabitants in advance, indicating a large group of militants must have converged and alarmed them. Militants, believed to number between six to 10, were part of the attack.Weapons lootedFive AK-47s, 18 magazines and one pellet shotgun were taken away from the dying policemen, said the police official. “We are going to track the killers,” said the DGP.Referring to the attack, LeT chief Mahmood Shah said, “The plots put up by [National Security Adviser] Ajit Doval are biting the dust. The time is near when the whole Kashmiri nation will celebrate its freedom.”last_img read more
