Have you ever thought what happens when you are on holiday?
You have multiple bosses when you are not in the office or you are out of office.
You are going on holiday and have told everyone in the office not to call or email you. You have left the laptop at home.
But you will definitely carry smart phone with you and you will be tempted to use social media.
And obviously you will post photos of every move that you make. Then you will expect likes and comments on these photos.
If you are an excellent phone photographer with a large fan following, the photos you tweet on twitter or post on instagram are making someone else rich.
Infact you have many bosses during vacations.
Twitter sells ad space based on your user engagement. Same goes for Instagram.
These platform owners thrive and become billionaires only if there are people willing to put their best efforts and make some good contributions.
These social media platforms are just a monotonous application without the labour of its users.
The people you are interacting with are probably on the full app, so you are keeping them engaged while FB serves them ads. Same goes for Airbnb or Uber or Google maps or Trip Advisor.
You have either earned those cash or helped them grow stronger in some way.
Blue wine. You may not have heard about it before.
A new cobalt blue colored wine is being launched in USA in October 2017 after a two year experiment mainly in Spain. The maker of this wine Gik who originally launched in Spain were fined Euro 3000 by Spanish government as this colour was not legally approved in wine industry.
It will be launched in USA in October and is expected to be priced between $12 to $14.
The producers of this wine are trying to do something different with fun element. The wine consists of both red and white grapes sourced from various vineyards in Spain and should appeal to everyone tasting and drinking it.
So what are you waiting for?
Taste it and have fun.
Do you know age of a tree planted around you?
As a tree grows, its trunk thickens as new wood is added in the middle of the trunk.
The age of a tree can be judged not only by the thickness and height of a tree but also by the number of circles on the trunk. Each circle indicates roughly a year.
In fact if find any severed tree you will see number of concentric circles in a cross section of trunk growing from the middle outwards. The space between two concentric circles represent annual layer of wood and by counting number of circles themselves the age of a tree can be known.
If you count number of circles in some giant fir trees, it will be many hundreds of years old.
These circles are also known as tree’s rings.
Amazon rainforest is one of the most famous and dense rainforest in the world. It is also dangerous if anyone goes deep into it.
This world’s largest tropical rainforest lies in much of north western Brazil and extending into Colombia, Peru and other South American countries. It measures about 5.5 Million sq km.
Discoveries by scientists have been mostly in endangered areas threatened by human activities as confirmed by World Wildlife fund (WWF). It took nearly 2 years for scientists to do this task.
Nearly 381 species were found including 216 plants, 93 fish, 32 amphibians, 19 reptiles, 1 bird and 20 mammals.
Some of the interesting new finds include fire-tailed titi monkey, or Milton’s titi, a white ball acari, a nocturnal river fish, and a ‘honeycomb’ stingray, a freshwater ray.
A Brazilian judge has held an order on proposed mining in the area nearly size of Switzerland which is really applaudable otherwise these discoveries will cease in future and we will lose all natural resources.
Parking is a very serious problem in major cities especially in Delhi. You cannot park your vehicle in narrow roads and in rainy weather when the roads are choked with water and become mini swimming pool. Wide roads look good but again one floor/one family has 3-4 cars making it very difficult to park your […]
