Walk the talk

Did you know that it takes us only seven seconds to form an impression about somebody? Which means, unnervingly enough, the reverse is also true. The moot point is this - you've got very little time to impress all those on the interview panel at your dream company.

A game to win

A team from SRM University's AP-Amaravati's Next Tech Lab beat 46 others to win the 2018 Indian Game Development Challenge. The game they designed is called Time Track. It features Clara whose time machine breaks down, "messing up her time continuum" and sending her to the Stone Age. The objective is to help Clara dodge obstacles and gather enough collectibles on her way to open a time portal that will take her to the next stage of human evolution. The team will be taking Time Track to Helsinki, Finland, to showcase it at SLUSH, the largest start-up conference in the world.

Free the frizz

It’s that time of the year when the skies open up every now and then and you can get caught in a downpour anytime, anywhere. And one of the many problems of getting wet is your hairstyle getting ruined by the rainwater. Monsoon brings with it certain other hair woes as well, and topping the list are frizzy locks and excessive hairfall. The build-up of styling products, pollution and rainwater, which is dirty and acidic, damage your hair, making it dull and drab.  During monsoon, hair tends to get greasy and oily due to the humidity and keeping your scalp clean is important.
