Meet The World’s Hottest Math Teacher!

You remember how as a student you always had crushes on your teachers? Well, here’s a math teacher who can push the crush quotient to insane levels!

Pietro Boselli teaches math at the University of London and recently, his students found out that their teacher – who they anyways thought was the hottest one around anyway, was actually doubling up as a model! The 25-year old, who holds a Ph.D. in Mechanical Engineering, was discovered by Georgio Armani and his hot photographs on his Instagram account have earned him more than 468,000 followers (and growing!).
The Italian hunk has a rippled body to die for and when he’s not teaching his students the intricacies of math, he sure looks like he spends all his free time at the gym! Now that his secret is out, he’s simply taking it all in. “There have been Facebook posts and even some fan pages, but never to this scale, never to the viral scale,” he says about his story.
The perfect embodiment of brains and brawn, Boselli keeps it simple that way, knowing that both are equally important. “Both aspects are very important to my life. Fitness motivates me on the off days. I think both parts are complementary,” he says.
Well, one thing’s for sure. Now that his story is out in the open, a lot more students will now be signing up for his lectures!

At the agency today 🙂 @models_1uk

Set to Elliot Moss’ Slip, here’s what it looked like. Get ready to be blown away!

This Is Why Supercars Are Not For Everyone

Driving lessons are fun as well as eye-opening. You get behind the wheels of a car for the first time and know immediately that the beast you have at your fingertips is capable of a whole lot of destruction.
And sometimes, there are lessons you’ll learn without even getting behind the wheels!
Dishing out a new set of instructions to the world on how not to drive a supercar, an unidentified driving enthusiast crashed a shiny new Porsche 918 Spyder and by the looks of it, seemed unfazed by the entire incident. Moreover, it didn’t even seem like it was his car!
Check out this guy as he’s soaking up all the attention like a boss, right up until he crashes the car like a beginner! He did manage to swerve in time and save the lives of a couple of innocent bystanders though!

Here’s a crew taking stock of the damage while the driver’s possible girlfriend tries to talk some sense into him, and we still do not know he could grin away. Probably hoping his pearly whites could turn back time?

And here’s the car being pushed into a garage while a security guy is asking the driver to accompany him somewhere (probably to his checkbook). We also see the girl walking away to speak to someone on the phone. Looking for a new boyfriend already?

Well, we’ve seen plenty of hilarious aftermaths of temporarily inflated egos, but this one’s is surely among the best!



Enemy: Intelligent and Gripping

The psychological thriller film, Enemy was released in 2013 and earned numerous awards for its excellent direction and the actors’ performances. Of course, Director Denis Villeneuve deserves all credit for the creation of the film and the excellent performance he manages to get out of his actors.

A French-Canadian writer and film maker, Villeneuve is celebrated for having won three Genie Awards for Best Director. The first was in 2001 for his film Maelstrom, while his second and third awards were for Polytechnique and Incendies in 2010 and 2011, respectively. All these films also won the award for Best Picture.
His latest directorial venture was the film Enemy. Enemy was created and directed between the making of Villeneuve’s two other excellent films, Oscar nominated Incendies and Academy Award winner Prisoners.

Released at the Toronto International Film Festival, in 2013, the movie has received positive responses from audiences and critics, and even though the plot may be confusing and bewildering, the story unfolds in an eerily well-designed manner. Adapted from the novel The Double, written by José Saramago, the movie has bagged five Canadian Screen Awards, including Best Director, Best Performance by an Actress in a Supporting Role and Best Picture. The 2014 Toronto Film Critics Association Awards nominated Enemy as the Best Canadian Film of the Year.

Villeneuve has always had a penchant for excellence. His creation of this double-themed film is one of the best creations in the history of film-making. While filming Enemy, Villeneuve definitely did his homework and has even managed to surpass his previous works in several ways. The story is gripping and every aspect has been carefully designed. At first, one may be totally at sea, thanks to the various intricacies of the storyline. But if the film is carefully analyzed, you will see what a beautiful director Villeneuve is and will surely agree on him having rightfully received all those awards.

Enemy is a mesmerizing story about a history professor, Adam Bell, who leads a simple yet complicated life with his girlfriend Mary. He happens to come across an actor named Anthony Claire, who looks exactly like him. The story does not flow in a smooth manner as most movies do. So there is no transitional element that truly gels one scene to another. In spite of this, each scene is carefully placed in its rightful position. This position may not be chronological and therefore, each occurrence must be looked at separately. If one fails to grasp this nuance, confusion is bound to reign!

While Villeneuve gets his audience to believe that the two identical characters in the movie, Adam and Anthony, played by Jake Gyllenhaal, are two different people; they are actually the same. This can be easily understood when they discuss their identical features right down to a scar on the chest. The truth is that Adam is actually experiencing the condition known as Multiple Personality Disorder, a favorite topic in the film fraternity. And in the movie, it is the main protagonist’s girlfriend who realizes this when she notices the sudden change in his behavior.

The film is so enthralling that you wouldn’t lose your focus for even a moment, for fear that you may miss out on something important. That’s the flair Villeneuve uses in his films to get his audiences’ undivided attention.

In the film’s poster and well as in the film, Villeneuve uses the image of a spider now and then. Its significance is unknown as there is nothing explained about the spider anytime during the movie. This metaphorical use of spiders in the film gets audiences to react, think and analyze the film differently.

Some believe that the spider signifies Adam’s mental conflict with the thought of commitment to his girlfriend. In some spider species the males are known to sacrifice themselves during copulation, while some female spiders kill the male spiders even before mating has occurred. Adam’s relationship with his girlfriend Mary is strenuous and could be compared to that of the spiders’.

This mind thrilling film grossed a colossal $3.4 million worldwide. With music by film score composers Daniel Bensi and Saunder Jurriaans, the film’s soundtrack is as extraordinary as the film itself, giving this project a well-rounded finish that is certainly worth a watch!


Internet Helps Success Kid’s Dad In Big Way

If you’re familiar with any kind of meme, you should be familiar with success kid as he can be found all over the Internet. Google the words and you will find hundreds of memes popping up of his cute face with determination and perseverance written all over it. Of course, there’s the clenched fist to add to the tenacity of it all too!
Now, the success kid, after providing countless hours of smiles to people, has written a special success story for his ailing dad.

Sam Griner’s dad, Justin Griner, has been fighting against the serious effects of kidney disease since 2006. In 2009, the now 39-year-old Justin suffered complete kidney failure. Recently, in a bid to raise money for her husband’s treatment, Laney Griner took to GoFundMe in the hope that complete strangers would see their plight and help her family out. After all, the fear that Justin had lost his mom to the same disease must have been foremost on their mind.
It wasn’t wrong to hold on to the hope of help from the world wide web though, the same web that helped their son’s face gain millions of admirers. Although Sam’s mom refrained from mentioning her son’s meme history on the page, believing it would be wrong to mention this detail, people soon found out and soon enough, everyone knew that Justin was the Success Kid’s father and needed help.
Now eight, Sam’s popularity on the web is well-known and in only a matter of days, his family not only raised the required amount of $75,000, but also overshot it. The last time we checked, the campaign was going strong with over $100,000 coming its way in the form of donations and blessings from around the world.
Laney is understandably elated the way things have worked out for her husband and cannot believe that so much love could come their way because of their son.
“I can’t thank you all enough for getting us to our goal and way beyond. We’re so thankful and humbled by the outpouring of support and kindness. This has all been far beyond our wildest hopes for fundraising. We never could’ve dreamed this. I’ll be eternally grateful for the support and hope you all gave to us. I love the internet so much,” she wrote on her campaign page.
We all know it isn’t just Sam’s popularity that has driven people to donate wholeheartedly towards this cause. The Internet truly is a place where loads of amazing stories turn up every day.

A Girl Walks Home Alone At Night – A Review

A Girl Walks Home Alone At Night is a brilliant debut work by writer and director Ana Lily Amirpour, telling us how even the minimally experienced can turn out to be brilliant.

The film premiered at the Sundance Film Festival in 2014 and made waves there as well as with future audiences, and rightfully so. Amirpour drew influence from a short film written and directed by her under the same title and that short even went on to win the award for the Best Short Film at the Noor Iranian Film Festival in 2012.
The story that A Girl Walks Home Alone At Night revolves around a young woman, played by Sheila Vand. Simply called ‘The Girl’ in the movie, the character is a twisted one, a lonely vampire lurking in the dark, hunting and preying on men who display a lack of respect toward women. Set in an imaginary Iranian town that goes by the name Bad City, the film unfolds in a slow and leisurely manner.

The plot further becomes interesting through the introduction of a young handsome lad, a role played by Arash Marandi, whose hard-earned ’57 convertible ride is taken away by Saeed’s (Dominic Rains) procurer, as collateral for the drugs sold to Arash’s father Hossein (Marshall Manesh), an aged drug addict. Arash is later entangled into a play of mistaken identity following death and bloodshed. As the plot unfolds, Saeed and Hossein are killed by ‘The Girl’ for their disrespectful treatment of women. Arash recovers his car and later meets the lonely vampire, while he is ironically dressed as the Dracula.

Amirpour utilizes expressions and gestures more than dialogues and weighs importance in bringing out the message through non verbal means. In almost all scenes of the film, Amirpour gets her audience to concentrate on her characters intensely. The film is mostly a series of tableaux and this lends it a different hue.

A Girl Walks Home Alone At Night gives off the perfect amount of eeriness, suspense and emotion and Amirpour uses ancient as well as modern elements in her film well. The film’s black and white cinematography is the perfect touch to Amirpour’s concept of a town stalked by a revengeful vampire. The Iranian-American writer and director envelopes the perfect blend of novelty and conventional elements in her debut direction.

This movie is the multi-production film made by Elijah Wood, Reza Sixo Safai, Ben Conrad, Daniel Noah, Josh Waller, Daniel Grove, Alexei Tylevich, Nicholas Moceri and Patrick Grove, and while Amirpour has included a talented cast to play each character, the movie can easily be termed a successful debut.

Having played out well with her first shot at a feature film, Amirpour is all set with her next feature film, The Bad Batch, starring Keanu Reeves, Jim Carrey and Diego Luna. Going by her undoubtedly successful debut film, the brilliant cast of The Bad Batch is likely to have great expectations of this blossoming director.

And since we all know how the talented only get better in the film world, so here’s hoping that Ana Lily Amirpour repeats the success of A Girl Walks Home Alone At Night with her new venture too.


These Films Surely Deserved A Sequel!

No matter what genre, Hollywood is celebrated for its indisputable ability to create some of the best sequels in the history of cinema. While some movies were best in the original, some others exceeded all expectations in their sequels.
And then there are these few brilliant standalone movies that never had sequels. Now, even though these original movies have been much appreciated, one can’t help but wonder as to why there weren’t sequels created.
Forrest Gump


This epic romantic comedy movie was viewed and loved by numerous movie aficionados all over the world. Even with the success of the movie, much to the disappointment of its fans there wasn’t a sequel released. The movie was based on a novel by Winston Groom who released a sequel novel in 1995 titled Gump and Co. Director Robert Zemeckis however, did not go with making a movie sequel. Many viewers would not be of the same opinion but it is said that the creators of Forrest Gump did not find the sequel plot relevant.

The 1998 sci-fi film Armageddon is one of the most well received movies at the box office. Having earned revenue of over 553 million, this movie had great prospects to go all out with a sequel. Lately, director Michael Bay is drowned in the making of the Transformers franchise. But we strongly believe that given the opportunity, Armageddon would’ve made an amazing sequel maybe with the storyline of another world ending meteor threat that truly creates havoc this time.
The Sixth Sense

This supernatural thriller scripted and directed by M. Night Shyamalan and released in 1999 gripped its viewers with its spellbinding plot and talented cast. The movie was even nominated for 6 Academy Awards including Best Picture and Best Director. Due to the huge success of this movie, there were rumors about a sequel; however, this was soon doused and the movie was left at its original.

Another one of M. Night Shyamalan’s epic drama films, Unbreakable is a movie about a superhero that survives any calamity and escapes without a scratch. Surprisingly, there was no sequel created to this film. The movie had great potential for a sequel but Shyamalan may not have been of the same opinion as some of his other films didn’t meet its audience with the same enthusiasm as expected.

Moviegoers doubted the success of Inception as it didn’t really seem likely to hit the box office big time, being a risky jump at something totally original and stimulating. However, once released, the movie scooped unbelievable revenue trailing a great opportunity for a sequel.
Mamma Mia!

The 2008 musical romantic film is based on the songs sung by the celebrated pop group of 70’s, ABBA. While the plot of the movie may not have been the best in this genre, movie fans gorged on the movie solely for the songs, the music and the talented cast. There was great potential for director Phyllida Lloyd to fashion a sequel, considering the numerous songs by ABBA that could be incorporated into the next movie. But Lloyd decided to make and stop Mamma Mia! at its original.

Actor Will Smith created waves with his image as the King of the Box Office. That is one of the reasons that made Hancock a hit amongst its viewers. Hancock being a movie about a man who was originally a bummed out alcoholic and was then transformed into a superhero that saves the day, is a plot that was enjoyed by many. This action drama movie laid the foundation for a great sequel, but surprisingly, this is nowhere on the cards.

With the enormous success of the Titanic, it is rather surprising that James Cameron didn’t go in with the idea for a sequel. It is agreed that the sinking of the great ship on its maiden voyage would spell the end of the movie; however, the idea of a sequel that showed the survival and existence of Rose would make for a great sequel. Hence, it is astonishing that after earning such gargantuan revenue the makers had not jumped at the thought of a sequel.
Easy A

Emma Stone at her best in this comedy drama film Easy A! The plot involves a teenager who goes with a rumor and ends up being the center of attraction at her high school. She is then inspired by the novel The Scarlett Letter and changes the way people look at her. With an interesting plot, the movie would’ve made for a great sequel. But guess the director thought otherwise.
True Lies

Arnold Schwarzenegger has been appreciated by his fans all through his Terminator movie franchise. His work in True Lies alongside Jamie Lee Curtis too gained equal response. Hence, it would be a great idea to make a sequel of the movie. But the director thought the movie was best left at its original.


Working Out Safely During A Pregnancy

The human body goes through various changes all throughout life. Right from birth, through infancy, puberty and old age, we experience physical and mental transformations. A woman’s body experiences a lot more change as compared to a man’s. The reason this is so is because a woman goes through a more intense phase of puberty and she also bears children.

To ensure a smooth transitioning from one phase to another, it’s best to keep your body healthy, fit and fine. In any case, there’s nothing like a good work-out to keep yourself fit. But there are certain aspects of your physical condition that you must consider before going ahead with a selected workout program. When we say physical condition, we are focusing on things like age, weight and during pregnancy.
A few important exercise points that would be worth considering during pregnancy have been discussed below. The level of exercising needs to be altered as you get further and further along.
Seek your doctor’s advice before indulging in a workout routine

If you already follow a routine for your daily workout and you’ve just received news of your pregnancy, it’s best to contact your doctor before proceeding with your next workout session. Depending on the stage of pregnancy you’re at, various exercises are prescribed to ensure you and your baby stay safe. If you have been advised of any complications in your pregnancy, you would definitely want to tone down your fitness routine or stop it completely.
Choose your exercise wear

Exercising while you’re pregnant could be quite a task as the changes to your body make it difficult for you to move or stretch comfortably. One aspect that could ease this tension would be the clothes you wear while working out. It’s best to wear comfortable clothing made of soft fabrics so you don’t feel too hot or sweaty after you warm-up. Most pregnant women suffer from swollen feet, so choose footwear that is loose and that keeps you relaxed.
Watch your calories

Most workouts concentrate on losing calories, but the scenario is different when you’re pregnant. You need to follow a healthy diet so as to ensure that you and your baby’s growth are positively affected. Your doctor and physical trainer can guide you accordingly. Another important factor to consider when you’re pregnant is if you are underweight or overweight. Your fitness regime will need to be carefully planned and executed, closely following regular check-ups and professional advice.
Pre and post-pregnancy exercise routine

Women who exercise before and during their pregnancy, based on their doctor’s advice, are more likely to get back into their pre-pregnancy body after delivery. Your healthcare provider will suggest the best exercises and diet that you need to follow in order to stay healthy.
Circumstances that completely restrict you from exercising

Certain complicated pregnancies completely refrain from any kind of physical or mental strain. These circumstances may include vaginal bleeding, premature contractions, blood pressure fluctuations and rupture of amniotic sac. In these situations your doctor would ideally advise you to refrain from any kind of physical stress which would include working and exercising. You could discuss with your doctor the option of other fitness routines like yoga and meditation instead.
A good warm up

When you are pregnant, your body’s ability to deal with sudden pressures decreases. Hence, most women are advised to either work or exercise less or refrain from both completely. If, after consulting with your doctor, you can exercise, it’s best to start your routine with a nice long warm up session. This gives your body the time it needs to prepare itself for exercise. A good warm up also helps you increase your heart rate gradually and not suddenly.
Remember, exercising while you’re pregnant is a good way to stay stress-free, physically fit and mentally stable, but doing it right is equally important!


A Mom And Her Brave Daughters

Mothers adore their little ones and making memories with them is often a priority that surpasses several others. One such mother has turned this adoration into her passion.

Happy Mother's Day to my mom @paintedpieces, an amazing artist but an even better mom and Mimi. We are very lucky!

Kate T. Parker is an Atlanta-based, commercial fine-art photographer who prefers capturing the casual and imperfect moments. She finds beauty in the toothless smiles, scraped knees and messy hair of little children and she draws inspiration for her unique style of work from her two daughters Ella and Alice.

Kate did not decide on this course of photography and life. The talented photographer was browsing through some of her daughters’ pictures and out of the blue, it suddenly occurred to her that her most brilliant pictures are those candid moments that she captured while her daughters were doing what they do best – being their brave little selves.
The freckled and messy little girls created the perfect images that caught Kate’s eyes and soon enough, she was clicking away the best pictures with her favorite models in the world!
Kate admires the very natural images brought out by her innocent but bold girls and sharing these images with the world has brought her loads of appreciation and goodwill.
Kate Parker has clicked a series of photographs that feature her daughters and their friends. She rightfully calls these photographs ‘Strong is the New Pretty.’

The fool on wABE today. 🙂
