  1. How about this diarrhea Apocalypse http://www.dumpaday.com/funny-pictures/funny-pictures-of-the-day-87-pics/attachment/funny-toilet-paper-6/. I'm not sure whether to appreciate the idea of having toilet paper as the bridal dress. Are we in some sort of crisis to rely on toilet papers for the gown. Would like to know what inspired the designer to think about toilet paper? Well, I'm sure where this idea originated :-). It inspired me to study more about toilet papers. I went through the statistic and found that Americans use three times as much toilet paper as Europeans. I don't think what this statistics shows :-) Plumbing contractors at toronto say that on an average 2/3 rd of US tissue consumption is in the consumer sector.

  4. "Smart" Cities are Watching You

    Samsung's 'peeping Tom' smartphones can spy on what you are reading and watching (https://www.thesun.co.uk/tech/3751944/samsungs-peeping-tom-smartphones-listen-and-watch-what-you-do-on-the-web-while-monitoring-your-emails-to-target-you-with-ads/). It can also monitor emails in your inbox. They switch to spy mode after they are alerted by a beacon. We are living in a world where mobile apps are watching over us. The insidious tracking reveals our every move. No wonder the British security services uses American technology to spy on others. This snooping operation is often justified by the defenders quoting the information as harmless while, on the other hand, the victims regard this as a violation of one's privacy. No one can forget the phone bugging incident of Angela Merkel (German leader). Though they claim that the 'metadata' does not reveal the content of phone calls and emails, in the wrong hands, a database containing innocent metadata could turn out to be an automated blackmail machine. If you take a close look at the 'metadata', you will be surprised to find that it monitors where you had been at any one time of a year. To be more precise, the number you call is revealing in themselves. The new free spying app for Android or iPhone (Highster Mobile App) is compatible with both Android and iOS devices. With the booming rise in smartphone numbers, there is a surge in mobile application development courses, more than ever before. For people struggling with drug addiction, for the gay and lesbian who need support, it might come in handy.
  5. 1,100 strangers showed up at his home for sex. He blames Grindr

    If someone is impersonating pretending to be you, get in touch with service and report the issue. Some applications like Facebook doesn’t allow impersonate other people. Not sure if this would work, still there is no harm in giving it a try. Go to the profile that is impersonating you. You can access by searching for the name. There should be an option “Report” I guess. There should be instructions for impersonation. Some services even have a form for filling the details of the impostor account. You can even request a copy of data posted to the account impersonating you. If you find no response from grindr, go for professional advice by approaching a lawyer or your law enforcement agency and discuss with them. In that case, have your lawyer review the operational guidelines. There are times when even the service providers fail in furnishing the requested information due to technical limitations. I have heard such incidents of impersonating profile pics, selfies etc. In Grindr, you have the option of Block or Report Spam profile. Select Impersonation where you will be given the option to provide more details. In fact, one of my colleagues encountered a similar situation. I would suggest OP report it to Tumblr and provide the policies. There are many dating apps which trick the woman into an affair. Hope you remember the outlaw fake dating app incident reported in theguardian were Anna Rowe was duped by a married man using a false photo and name. There had been a steep decline in the dating standards over the past few years, though online dating apps never use fake profiles. I was surprised when a gay matchmaker cited that an early form of dating website dates back to 1700s. It has evolved over the years. One easy way is to use Google Image search or TinEye on the pics.

  7. 86-year-old raises $400,000 and then gives it away

    Thanks for this post. I salute the indomitable spirit of your father. His noble idea of recycling has contributed not just to reducing the carbon footprint, but also in imbibing good values in his children. Nine million pounds is a big amount and deserves all accolades. To give away the whole amount to the poor is something unbelievable. He proved to be a responsible citizen, a good philanthropist, and above all a good dad. It is for all of us to emulate such great minds. I promote the idea of recycling, every time I get a chance. Many things which we think belongs to the trash can be another man's treasure or in fact our own through repurposing. In the recent past, there have been quite encouraging signs with more organizations devoting their valuable energy, man hour, resources on recycling, in turn, preserving the ecosystem. Paying attention while disposing of hazardous waste can avert the serious damage it poses to public health and the environment. Wastes from homes contain reactive, flammable, corrosive items which are hazardous. I teach my children to reuse old household things and thereby reduce waste. Nike has a recycling program for old worn out shoes which is a very good move. I read it in this article(http://www.gorillabins.ca/blog/5-household-things-you-didnt-know-you-could-reuse/). Similarly, keys, spectacles, wooden crates, almost all can be recycled. If not the whole amount, at least a portion we can donate to the needy emulating the great John Jennings.
  8. Most interesting news associated with bacteria was the recent discovery that bacteria can eat plastic bottles. The kind found in disposable bottles. This was published in the journal Science which would pave way for maanging 50 million tons of particular type of plastic produced globally every year. The plastic found in water bottles, polyester clothing, frozen dinner trays and blister packaging, polyethylene terephthalate or PET is resistent to being broken down by microbes(biodegradation). To confirm the discovery , the Japanese research team from Kyoto Institute of Technology and Keio University collected 250 PET-contaminated samples including sediment, soil and wastewater from a plastic bottle recycling site. This is quite encouraging, but let us not take things for granted and minimise the usage of plastics, because the breaking down process is very less compared to the disposal rate. Devise easy ways of recycling plastic bottles ? ( http://www.gorillabins.ca/blog/seven-innovative-ideas-for-recycling-plastic-bottle/ ) Probiotics or good bacteria which reside naturally in our body is beneficial and infact needed for our survival. Good bacteria is your gut, which help you digest your food and fight invading microbes. The balance is altered by abundance of starches, sugars, vegetable oils in the diet. Now outside they are the best decomposers which break down dead and decaying organic matter, from leaves to insects. They are used to clean oil spills keeping environment healthy. Outside of your body, bacteria like lactic acid and streptococcus bacteria aid in producing food. They are used to make dairy products like cheese, yoghurts, sour cream and crème fraîche! These bacteria are added to milk and they grow and ferment the milk. Bad bacteria on the other hand can make you sick , go on to spoil food, water, and worsen unhygenic surrounding since they multiply fast. Hygiene when you are buying, storing, preparing, cooking and eating food will ensure that you avoid getting bacteria on your food and any small amount that do make it will be killed by making sure you cook your food properly. But the fact is we often talk a lot about bad bacteria and seldom about good because the latter unleashes damage at largescale in a very short period of time. These good bacteria is needed to keep you safe from some of these bad bacteria.
  9. Sounds interesting...Another simple option is the Mul-T-Lock with the new "secure keyway" technology which locksmiths often claim to be reliable. They argue that locks are the fist line of defense. Check this article that I found http://protectionplus.ca/blog/hi-security-mul-t-lock/ . They go through rigorous testing and are given high security rating.
  10. The term selfie has gone to become an inseparable part of our everyday life. From terorrists behave the way it is expected of them, no wonder. Selfie Mania, a viral fashion has influeneced all spheres of life. From the president to the pope, no one is spared, everyone has had taken published it or tagged to social network. There are even selfie contests like the one I found at freshslice http://www.freshslice.com/2016/04/29/win-pizza-for-a-year-freshsliceselfie-contest/#more-404. The best part is the lucky winner will win feast pizzas for a year. Some selfie contest in UK went on to raise funds for the sight loss prevention through selfie campaign. From the meanest to the nicest use it.
