There is no other part on earth that I might consider as ‘haven’ other than Thailand, Phuket. Work has been rather intense and I have recently chose to take few months off to discover new places. From the few places that I’ve gone to, nothing left greater feeling than Phuket.
Could it be the folks? Could it be the landscape? Can it be the food? Is it the weather? I am not sure. Why is Phuket so special is probably the adroit blend of everything.
While most of the planet has forgotten in regards to the catastrophic tsunami that rocked Phuket in 2006, the same cannot be said of the locals residing in Phuket. From the way I notice it, pictures from that disaster remain vivid in the minds of the people. Nontheless, lives had to move on and that’s what happened with the people there.
Below are a few pictures that I’ve captured during my visit to Phuket. Hope you guys like it!Read More
Steve Jobs, a standout amongst the most enigmatic leaders and innovator of our age, perished in the year 2011. But a couple of years after his death, his legacy can nevertheless be smelled in the air and Apple turned into the most valuable business on the planet in 2014. Years after his passing, Apple remains the same firm that is close it has always been. For those who aren’t just Apple enthusiasts, there are lots of fascinating things about the company you may not be aware of. Here are a few fascinating facts about Apple that’ll do nothing. I am sure you will be amazed and they might give you a glimplse of the secret recipes that turn out such ground-breaking products as the iPod and iPhone.
Apple is the most famous firm for its remarkable secrecy. It’s hard to trust that no other people (except for Steve Jobs and his small team of engineers) has seen what an iPhone looked like when it was initially introduced in 2007. All of us wonder how these guys succeeded to achieve that, although this type of secretiveness is remarkably astonishing. It truly is said that bogus endeavors are frequently created by Apple in order to test out their employees’ trustworthiness. In case an employee is entitled to this kind of endeavor and leaks out advice, they’re fired instantly.
After revolutionizing the music industry, another revolution was made by Apple in the mobile phone business. And their cash heap are raising at a speed that is genuinely intriguing. By the year 2014, Apple had $160 billion in cash accessible. To place this number in context, Microsoft just had $85 billion while the US Treasury just had $49 billion in the first quarter of 2014. And to illustrate farther, this cash is enough to buy an iPod for each and every individual in America and still not get depleted. If Apple was a nation, it’d be placed at the top 50 largest market in the world because of its huge cash reserve.
Apple is known globally for their iconic layout. But their stores are income generating powerhouses. They have broken records previously held by Tiffany and Co which used to be the leader when it comes to the amount of cash generated per square foot. In 2013, each Apple store allegedly generated twice as much revenues compared to Tiffany & Co. and that record was shatteredTo be exact, each square foot of every single Apple store generates $6,050 compared to the $3,017 created by Tiffany. Actually, this is an accomplishment that no other firm has been able to replicate.
This is a big event that the entire world takes note of, when Apple is starting a new product. Attendees for their launching day and the amount of media attention outdoes any company by hundreds of miles. Every year thousands of Apple devotees in the launching of Apple’s new iPhone, would gather outside the shops all for the benefit of being the first to get their own hands on the iPhone. There hasn’t been another episode of supporters lining up for hundreds of hours on the launching day and this only occurs for Apple. In 2014, the headline was made by a Japanese man before the product was declared, by queueing for the iPhone 6.
Even as years pass by, Apple never captures to shock the world with their products and sales records. As as a brand and a company, they continue to shatter beliefs of what is potential. They’ve performed at every degree and continue to achieve magnificence as they transcend heights man impossible at such an early part of the new millennium. With the untimely departure of Steve Jobs back in the year 2011, Tim Cook inherited enormous shoes to fill. A lot of people consider that Apple’s ‘finest days’ are over however Tim Cook and his group has by now revealed that they can keep up the business’s increase at least for now. Although we know that everything is bound to come to an end. The coming few years will be fascinating and everybody will be intently watching in case the planned Apple’s launch of watch will be another success or failure.Read More
Our planet world has some fascinating spots that anyone will relish visiting if presented with the opportunity to do it. There are numerous odd spots on the planet though the most unexpected of will undoubtedly leave you gasping. As someone who loves to travel and discover uncommon things about the world that we live in, I have lately formed a compilation of the strangest places ever discovered. They including those that I’m personally yet to visit and those that I’ve witnessed and managed to see. Hereis the list I have compiled, I hope it encourages more to travel and enjoy some incredible things the world has to see.
Everyone of us dreams of retiring sooner or later in our own lives. The thought of retirement that is perfect differs between folks though there’s one retirement town that hit the news recently. Situated in Florida, The Villages is reported to be one of the biggest retirement community in the world. To many, this town would look like an idyllic retirement home with its location in a place like Florida. The reality is far from The Villages and ideal was recently thrusted into the spotlight due to the amount of scandals and sexually transmitted diseases (STD) which has been reported. The large number of golf courses, country clubs, bars and restaurants in the area may look like a place that is perfect though not when outdoor sex and outrages are widespread.
Located south of Tokyo is a town called Miyake-jima island because everyone who is living in this city might have to carry a gas mask, and it truly is one of the oddest place on world. The main reason is because they are living in the heart of Mt Oyama where it’s considered to be among the deadliest volcano. There is even a public crisis system on the standby to raise alarm if any increase in the amounts of noxious gases is detected. I have ever been stupefied why the residents of Miyake-Jima still decide to carry on placing their lives in danger like this. I think there are only some strange things that are wired within us and none of us can fully comprehend.
Here is an interesting fact: New Zealand is a country that is home to more sheep than individuals, so New Zealand is a lovely spot to see them in all their furry glory, if you are fond of sheep. I recently came across a city in the US called Lawndale in which the amount of living residents is outnumbered by the deceased. This city can be said to get less than 2000 living residents in a land that’s home to over 1. 5 million dead bodies. It must be a scary place to live in as you will find virtually nothing but graveyards on every turn of the junction. While there aren’t any special reasons for visiting such a location, you can don’t hesitate to check it out next time San Diego is in close view.
Situated in Cyprus is Varosha city except that no one is living in the city that looks as good as normal from afar. What was once the most famous tourist destination in Cyprus has turned into a shadow of its former glory. It was the 1974 Turkish invasion that drove away all the inhabitants of this town. No one ever came back to this area and the invasion was left entirely immobilized in time ever since then, even after it was over. From afar, it looks totally the same like the bustling city it absolutely was in 1974 except no one lives there anymore. Thinking about walking into this uninhabited town only rouses a thrilling feeling that is freakish.
Mine was only a little compilation of areas which are found on our planet’s most weird. In my opinion, seeing such areas is vital for anyone who is looking to be amazed and expand their outlook of the entire world. Despite how some of these peculiar areas seem quite frightening to me, I however want to visit them one day. Although it’s stated that a picture speaks a thousand words, what you feel unless you really step into these areas and experience cannot be achieved. I am sure more strange places will probably be found and I’ll make an effort to keep this list updated.Read More
From all different furniture possibilities, bean bag is probably one which is regularly less talked about. Bean bag selection goes beyond more than merely a piece of furniture collection but one that will have an impact on the life-style that you’re likely to love. To most people, the idea of furnitture can’t be way from either wood or steel and anything else is regarded secondary. What most people aren’t conscious of is that bean bag as furniture choice, can add exceptional dynamic and they are able to inject fun into any room that’s equipped with it. Here are a few great means to incorporate bean bag chairs and a beanbag sofa into your everyday life.
Among the biggest group of bean bag fanatics is among the youngsters. It is possible to see for yourself the epinephrine-like reaction from kids at the sight of bean bag sofa and I can bet with you that they’ll require little reluctance to jump into it. In reality, lots of parents decide to buy their bean-bag maybe not for themselves but for their children. The versatility with beanbag chairs allow kids to convert it into various designs as they enjoy it. Kids tend to get bored really easily and also this characteristic of bean-bag makes it the ideal furniture for kids. Parents also love to let their kids use a bean-bag simply because they will have less to be concerned about as the injury hazard associated with bean bag is lower.
One well-known use of beanbag are available in the library. As you get your self prepared to be immersed in the novel that you have grabbed from the shelf, there’s really nothing more comfy than slugging your self in to a bean bag couch. Just like the way in which you let yourself be caught up into the storyline, you’re able to let yourself be ‘sucked’ by the bean bag. If you are a designer and seeking furniture thought that is not only chic-looking but also cozy for your own audience, bean bag undoubtedly makes one of the outstanding thought. Regardless of the color and theme of your decor, the perfect bean bags can be personalized for you provided the adaptive nature of beanbag it self.
Using bean bag as a swimming pool furniture is an idea that is increasingly common nowadays. I get a shock reaction every time I mentioned this to a buddy. But it really is true that when it comes to the pool area, bean bag can actually make among the best piece of furniture. What you need to do is simply select bean bags that are made of waterproof fabric and deploy them without having to worry about them getting all the splashes. The minimal quantity of care and upkeeping is one edge that bean bag can provide. The notion of discovering your-self boating the pool as you bask your self under sunlight is unquestionably appealing and if you own your private pool, it is something that you can try.
Improper sitting pose is an issue which is common to many folks and this has been the major reason for back problem among many. As most people have a tendency to connect bean bags with entertaining rather than ‘actual’ furniture, maybe not a lot of people comprehend of the wellness benefit that a good back can do to the health of your again. But through numerous studies, it’s been repeatedly demonstrated how bean bag chairs can enhance one’s sitting position which will eventually provide good impact to the wellbeing of one’s back.
The use-cases mentioned above are just a small set of illustrations on how a bean-bag can be utilized. It is one piece of furniture equipment where your imagination is the only limit. While you can find bean bag makers that offer you ready made layout, the greatest is still one which you can totally customize to your liking and preference. It’s increasingly harder to locate bean bag manufacturers who will willingly allow you to customize which is recognized since any business design that relates to personalization can not be mass-produced. Yet, you will be fortunate if you can find one which lets you have total customization liberty which frequently means it is possible to select anything from the shape, textile material and fabric pattern.Read More
There is this thing that always makes my head work overtime thinking. I always wonder if I was given the chance to reside in any city in the earth what sort would it be. This consideration is logically made with a predictable strategy. I will go to google and do a search for the best spot to reside in the world. Google has been likened to God as it’s proved to have much of the advice we desire. For this I expect to get a exact answer from it. But on the other hand, I could be incorrect. The responses google gave me are highly subjective as the individuals who are linked with those responses might have been subjective in how they chose those cities. For instance, Florence is the answer you get when you ask CNN Traveler that’s a small city that’s found in Italy. Yet, Telegraph would give your Melbourne as the best city, and this is the 2nd largest city, situated in Australia. This pushed me to make my own list up. Based on my knowledge and inclination, here are my top picks.
Chiang Mai is just another great city to contemplate. I know you may be wondering where on earth is Chiang Mai, it’s in Thailand. It’s also not that popular, since Bangkok is the most typical city in Thailand. There’s no significant traffic jam such as the one in Bangkok, although the city is not located far from Bangkok. The three facets that make the city a good area to dwell is the amazing food, the fine weather, as well as the fraternizing individuals.
Milan is just another great city, which is considered to be the epitome of fashion on the planet, and it has been my favored place. Suppose you’ve visited Milan, you could understand it is more than a trend destination. The food here is simply delicious. To any pasta lover who has never seen Milan, it’s clear that they may not have eaten the real pasta. One more thing which makes Milan even more special for me is its soccer culture. I’m a big fan of AC Milan and I want to watch them play every week.
Another city which has always been a favorite is San Francisco. In USA, it is one of the best places to reside in the city that’s also known as the hi tech capital of the world. The weather here is more friendly as compared to other cities in the state. Watching the golden bridge lights up at night is actually an incredible treat. Subsequently there is the cable car ride that is probably the only few ones left in the world. The cultural combination is some thing else I value about the city. This is because many individuals from different portions of the globe met at San Francisco to establish their very own tech entities.
This has been my personal listing of the best cities to live in. I’m not saying this list is for everyone. It is because different individuals have memories or their own affections to particular areas. It is dependent upon where you have been raised and it depends on simply how much exposure you’ve of any specific city. For instance, it is possible that individuals dwelling in Europe will have little or no exposure to cities within Asia. And also, if you live in Asia, you may not know about European cities. Thus, it is very important that we respect people’s opinion on this and prevent getting the experience and stereotyping about any city before seeing with it.Read More
If an animation company is to granted a gold standard award, it’s pretty apparent which company that would be. From the year 1995, when the first toy story was released into the cinemas, Pixar has churned up an animation blockbuster after another one per annum. Here is an interesting fact. For movie production company to be lucrative, they almost all have to release more than one picture each year. But for Pixar, they are just a class above the remainder. Rather than making several films, Pixar should spawn one each year. The folks working at Pixar must be very great at what they do because not one of their animation movies failed to be a box office success. Here is a peek at some Pixar movies and characters that have actually grown on both, young and old audiences alike.
Among the classic favorites among children (and car afficionados) is The Autos. Since its release in 2006, the film proved to be a great hit that remains to date. You can try showing this movie to any kids and I can guarantee you that they’ll stay glued to the display. Close to ten years later, Pixar continues to pick profits from the sales of its own Autos merchandize. Lightning McQueen and Mater are the most popular and memorable characters from the movie. was obviously compared to the first one, after Cars 2 was released in it. Many people are exceedingly fond of Automobiles 2. Personally, I adore both of them and selecting a winner from the two is not an activity I want to participate in.
The debut release from Pixar was Toy Story in 1995 and it revolutionized the animation film industry. Pixar’s celebrity skyrocket was seen by the movie because of its intense success. The main character of the movie is Woody and it is a character that is no stranger to any children nowadays. What makes Toy Story this kind of classic is the story line and characters that all of us can connect to. Almost all of us are guilty of mistreating our toys in one way or another. What Toy Story educates us is that even toys, though they have no feelings, need valued and to be medicated with care. The second episode of the movie appeals more to me than any other of the two.
Finding Nemo has to be one of Pixar’s highest grossing creations since the inception of the company’s. This really is among these perfect movies that every parent simply has to take a seat and see with their kids. The story line is based on a very protective dad whose son goes missing. Then he goes on a crazy ride of an assignment to find his son and bring him home. During this search operation the parents discover that being over protective of their children isn’t good. What parents learn from Finding Nemo is just how to fend for themselves and to educate their kids the significance of being responsible. Finding Nemo is a heartwarming movie that opens up the imagination to life in the underwater world with its magnificent fish characters.
I love food that is great and I’m confident that’s some thing that everyone of is enthusiastic about. Ratatouille is a must see for people who wish to have a look at mice in a whole new light and critic or virtually any food lover. Personally I’ve watched this film more than ten times and I’m consistently thrilled each time I do thus. Like in most other Pixar films, the primary character isn’t human but rather a rat in this case. For anybody who hasn’t watched the movie, the story of a rat becoming a gourmet chef will not seem very appealing as rats are considered pests who eat up all our food. But as usual, Pixar will not fail to convince an audience with amazing animation and its exceptional storytelling ways. No cartoon film production company comes close to narrating this kind of story in ways that reaches out to crowds and changes how they look at matters.
Today, Pixar is a company on its own. In that year, Disney acquired Pixar on impact the move would have on the company’s future work amid a cloud of adverse outlooks. Ever since then, several hit films which have been on par with the quality of movies released as an independent business have been released by Pixar. But there’s one question that myself have always pondered over. I always wonder whether the purchase has put a stay to the creativity and technological advancement that was witnessed back in the day. I’m yet to view a real breakthrough movie like their classic Toy Story in 1995. But anyway, I am an enormous Pixar lover and I definitely expect they continue making great stories for several years into the future.Read More
Alarming growth rate is shown by the average waistline of Americans above a number of years. The rate of obesity in America is the greatest in the planet according to numerous reports. Even the First Lady herself Michelle Obama initiated a Lets Move plan to improve the health consciousness on Americans. I am becoming a health fanatic thanks to the competitive push made by such initiatives. Thus, I’ve been contemplating numerous factors before making food choices at the grocery store. And I put measures seeing what my kids will eat. Let’s go through the listing of foods making it to my blacklist. In addition, I advise anyone to do the same and avoid such foods.
Many of us love cookies and crackers, and this is especially so with children. It must be fairly clear to you personally that the high level of sugar and salt contents alone make crackers and cookies unhealthy option of food. Many of the cookies and crackers sold in the store comprise unhealthy quantity of trans fat, to make the issue worse. Some food manufacturers utilize a trick to hide this. According to the rules determined by USFDA, producers are allowed to attach the ‘zero trans fat’ label into their product if each portion contains less than 0. 05 grams of fat. Due to how such tagging would boost the image of their merchandise, some of these manufacturers abide to this rule by frequently reducing their serving size rather than actually lowering the levels of fat in their own product. They have 1 cookie per serving instead of having 3 cookies per serving. While the regulation permits this, in fact, there is enough unhealthy fat to give unwanted extra pounds that tamper with your own life to you.
Potato chips and french fries have been criticized for developments and unhealthy patterns, but people still get drawn to their sweetness alluring scents. However, to get out of the conscious guilt, the standard potato french fries are being slowly replaced by other forms of chips like apple chips. Common in supermarkets now are apple chips which are one way consumers attempt overcoming people’s feelings. Many consumers believe that eating apple chips is really great for their health only on account of the famous quote that alludes an apple a day keeps the doctor away. This really is really something which is far from the truth. The chips sold today include large amount of MSG and artificial ingredients to better their flavor.
According to most health care and fitness specialists, salad offers numerous advantages and is a very health food. However, most key health benefits of salad are revoked when you add rich creamy dressing. Many creamy salad dressings are capable of enhancing the entire flavor by multiple times. But you have to take note that these creamy dressings are not low in calories and saturated fats are contained by it. Consequently, when you are seriously interested in becoming healthy, you should begin changing your consumption of fruits and vegetables. You must start devouring fruits and the vegetables raw instead of adding any unhealthy dressings. It will not just lead to loss of nutrients but also be more dangerous thank advantageous.
The above foods are a few of the many that one who’s serious about their health better avoided entirely. I can go on, and enable you to understand the list is endless, if you want. So as to maintain your health, the most significant point to think about would be to avoid all kinds of processed foods. Thus, the very next time you go to the grocery store, you need to be careful about picking up certain things. It’s important to ignore the marketing strategies used by various food manufacturers and you also need focus on more healthy food options, and to be a clever consumer. Remember, more often than not, those foods that are vapid or simple are simply the best and healthiest. Consequently, there’s this rule that I’ve developed myself. I begin to discover the ingredients in the taste of the food that make it taste that good, in case it is not bad.Read More

The world is now a place that was sophisticated, almost every apparatus here may be connected wirelessly. It is amazing to think about how far technology has come and yet we’re still at the dawn of a new era that many are referring to as ‘The Internet of Things’. Every wireless gadgets or apparatus we’ve has enriched our lives, the convenience and control they bring to our day have in no doubt helped our lives in some way or another, regardless how trivial they are. For better or for worse, we’re now dwelling in a wireless world, now since there is no escaping from it I decided to train myself at a few of the myths, superstitions, and disinformation concerning wireless technologies and checked if they have some grain of truth in them.
Now, our computers are shrinking in size but yet the computing power of devices that are small are growing at speed that is tepid. There is one major drawback that comes with every one of the modest but powerful computing devices like our smartphone. They have to be charged frequently as the battery life of such devices is not enough to continue the entire day together with the amount they may be used. Until today, there’s no worldwide connector which could be used to charge all our cellular devices. This implies that if I’ve a phone along with a notebook, I still need to carry with me 2 different charging connectors for every one of them. The thought of wireless charging has been mooted for a while now but it has not reached the maturity for mass adoption yet. Several people are distrustful of this type of device’s existent, but I believe it’s definitely possible and certainly will make its introduction into our wireless lifestyle sometime soon.
It’s almost hopeless for us to escape from the electromagnetic wave that originates from our wireless devices unless you’re residing in a remote rural area. In the modern world, yet, nearly every dwelling has WiFi technology for internet access via laptops and cells. As helpful and suitable wireless technology is in our everyday lives, there’s also controversy surrounding it with respect to the ill- effects it could have on our health. Many research have been done on wireless transmissions with physicians and scientists questioning the dangerous rates of carcinogenic emitted from the devices. However, so far it seems like none of those studies has been able to conclusively associate these wireless transmissions to any substantial health hazards. I love my wireless devices but I am still a little paranoid about it. But nowadays, I have attempted to make it a custom to keep the devices away from me when I’m not using them.
The 5. 8GHz was added recently and more and more number of latest Wi Fi capable devices are supporting it. A lot of folks make the false assumption that 5. 8GHz is better than 2. 4GHz and it’s surely better than the 900MHz that was previously used for mobile phone transmisison. This turns out to be wrong as the it depends on what one defines as better. The primary reason the 5. 8GHz spectrum has been added is because the 2. 4GHz is becoming overcrowded and not because it better. Many people detected their Wi Fi performance to improve on changing to the 5. 8GHz spectrum. The sole rationale that’s true is because there are gadgets and less folks using that spectrum.
Majority of the people are starting to believe wireless connections is as reliable as traditional wired connections, now that wireless devices outnumber wired apparatus. It depends on how you examine the problem and it’s going to discover whether it turns out to be a true of false assumption. Most individuals won’t be able to judge the difference between the two types of connections, should you consider only speed as a factor, then according to me. As far as physical connections are concerned, they always have a chance that something may get damaged or go wrong. This really is when you understand that troubleshooting wireless connection can indeed be multiple times less easy than troubleshooting wired connection issues.
It’s an undeniable truth that our very lives is currently affecting. It’s interesting to discover how some people have wireless technology that is entirely misunderstood. I am no specialist in this technology and the things I’ve discussed here are nothing more than my individual opinion on a matter that I consider is quite fascinating to say the least. It is my hope that this discussion helps you in clearing the myths associated with wireless technology off your mind. I am no expert in regards to this subject, so please do comment and bring your view on wireless technology and maybe together we can differentiate between facts and myths.Read More
Ranging from the outbreak of Ebola to the Malaysian airplane’s disappearance. As with every other year, there are quite a few occasions happening in 2014 which are more critical than many others. 2014 has not been short of memorable events and I have compiled a handful of them. There may be others which aren’t included while I’ve tried to list many occasions that I will recall of 2014. So, don’t hesitate to add any other major happenings which you feel I may have left out yet they matched the threshold via remarking below to be in my list.
In March 2014, the Malaysian Airline flight MH370 went missing. A total of 239 passengers went missing along with the plane which sparked off the search operation that was most substantial and high-priced that we have ever seen. With a total of 26 states participating, billions of dollars spent and some of the very innovative equipment deployed, the world was left clueless with the whereabout of the ill-fated airplane. There were several rumors and conspiracy theories about the way in which the airplane went missing but almost one year later, no firm deduction was made.
In 2014, one of the major insurgent group in Nigeria found an attack to kidnap a total of 276 female pupils. The group claiming the accountability named themselves as Boko Haram and they cited their opposition to westernization as the root cause of their extremism. I can visualize you have a daughter and if you lived in Nigeria, you won’t ever be in a situation to dwell peacefully once again. With such misery going on around the globe, I’ve learnt to value the safety I love in my area and can just pray for a better future.
2014 additionally marked one of the largest technology acquisition in our generation. Consistent jointly with the increasing utilization of smartphone is the rise of messaging programs. 90% of smartphone users entirely rely on Whatsapp to send personal messages, though we all use Facebook as it pertains to keeping track of our friends. Whatsapp’s hundreds of millions of loyal users gave Facebook sufficient impetus to dig quite deep into their deep pockets, coming out with a whopping $22 billion valuation for Whatsapp. Considering Whatsapp had only 70 employees during the acquisition, such valuation is remarkable by any means. It is adequate to make every Whatsapp worker a millionaire. It remains to be seen its new acquisition will become a giant cash cow. Hopefully we will not need to return to the olden days when we’ve got to cover each message. All of the emoticons can charge since those matters are useless to me and I can live with it. But if they have to resort to advertisements to generate income, it’s one thought that I definitely do not wish to live with.
Not all of us can remember the amount of petroleum at when the global financial crisis began in 2008. Back then, oil cost was in the reach of $60 per barrel. The following years found petroleum price creeping to $130 the greatest phase, drastically to the pain of several households owners who found their utility gas statement doubling of per barrel. Subsequently finally the oil crisis came to happen in 2014, dropping back to its price levels before 2008. All along I considered that lower oil price would be great for typical guy like me but I was perplexed when I read that such low cost is really not good for the international market. At the conclusion of 2014, gas prices in several cities in the US had come down from its peak of $5 to less than $2. That’s why this year seems like the one that US auto-owners will be remember the for quite a long time to come.
I am sure some of you may remember the year 2014 for reasons other than what I’ve included here. But the world will be quite so dull if all of us see things the same way. The things that interest us will determine the importance of an event and I do not expect everyone to have the same interests as mine.
