“Loss of life Of Conversation: How Cell phones Take Over Our World

I give many a chemical rush when they answer my call, 8-10 US
Citizens believe I was addictive, and I can destroy you if I’m abused.

What am I? A cell phone, of course! Because of cell phones, we are
more linked than ever before, but disconnecting is also more painful.

The following shows, as well as the ‘Death Of Conversation’ job by
Babycakes Romero, show some of the funny and not-so-funny side
associated with our plugged-in lifestyle.”

The funny thing is, these all ring so true 😉

Truly Beautiful Mannequins can be Found only in Venezuela

http://bit.ly/2uwQ1am

“As a tourist who has visited Venezuela, with all responsibility I
declare – in this country make beautiful mannequins from rest. Still,
they say, good specimens are found in Panama, but it is still only in
the plans. Mannequins with extreme proportions have become standard in
stores as Venezuelan women increasingly use plastic surgery to transform
their bodies. www.ru”

Dog Photograph of the Year Competition

http://bit.ly/2uovHYQ

“Every year, The Kennel Club, perhaps the oldest recognized canine
institution in the world, delights us with pictures from their Dog
Photographer Of The Year competition – and makes us fall in love with
dogs even more…

The prestigious contest
has been running for 12 years now. It received nearly 10,000 entries
from 74 countries around the world. The competition has 10 categories,
including ‘Puppies’, ‘Assistance Dogs’, ‘Rescue Dogs’, and ‘Dogs At
Work’. There’s also a ‘Man’s Best Friend’ category, that showcases
photos that capture the deep bond between dogs and humans.

This
year, Maria Davison from Portugal won the overall prize with a picture
of a black puppy resting by her friend’s feet. Davison said: “This image
was already close to my heart and it is one of the photographs I am
most proud of. It was not only a beautiful, real and candid moment I got
to capture, but also a demonstration of the strong bond between one of
my closest friends and her dog, Yzma. Winning not only the Man’s Best
Friend category, but also the overall winner prize with this picture
feels really good.”

The winning images will be exhibited at the Kennel Club in Mayfair, London.”

Indian Train Journey

http://www.haazy.com/indian-train-journey-by-tamina-florentine-zuch/

“Nowhere else in the world will you find so many travellers, travelling by
train in India. Every day, more than 20 million people travel by this
mean of transport in India. In this country the largest railway network
in the world, which connects all corners of this big country. Journey in
an Indian train will never be boring – when you meet a person of any
class, education, caste, age. Given that the level of the rail network,
quite frankly, old, for the unprepared person the trip of a few days can
be a living hell – there is no air conditioning, clean linen; often the
trains a giant crush because of overpopulation of the country. For
Indians the same – it is routine”

Gaming and Education

https://www.hacker9.com/relation-between-games-and-studies.html

We all know that most kids these days don’t particularly like textbooks – did we ever? But if you can sneak some actual facts and figures into computer games then the chances of kids being more enthusiastic about homework go through the roof.

In fact modern computers and software have revolutionised education – or they would if the government actually realized this and budgeted schools for more of them..

Oh but I forgot – we wouldn’t see any difference in results for another generation so the mostly middle-aged politicians in power now just don’t care 🙁

Yener Torun – Images of Istanbul as a Colourful and Modern City

http://bit.ly/2tA2ZDK

“What imagery comes to mind when you think about Istanbul? Whatever it
is, it’s probably not modern architecture, and that is what Turkish
photographer Yener Torun is trying to change.

Just think of the Istanbul photos you have seen before:
grand mosques, old streets, seagulls over the Bosphorus. I show a
completely different side. Even long-term residents can’t believe these
pics were taken in the city they live in,
” says the photographer.

He
regularly updates his Instagram account with these incredibly vibrant
examples of Istanbul’s modern architecture. It started a couple of years
ago, when he found an inspiration for his photography in architecture: “Usually architecture easily provides the things I look for – colours, geometric patterns, strong lines, shadow plays.“”

That’s Some Boat!

http://bit.ly/2tbK3xn

“Demand for the luxury in growing. One of the expanding industry is
luxury boats production. New companies constantly appear offering their
services in luxury boat building. Nobody had any experience first,
there were no luxury boats in Soviet Russia for 70 years in a row. So
some manufacturers copy their works from the Western industry, but some
go their unique, Russian way, creating something looking not alike to
any other, like this one made for one of the Siberian governors.”

School Lunches From Around the World

http://bit.ly/2qslsiD

“It’s important that growing children eat healthy, but judging by the
appearances of some school lunches out there, it doesn’t seem like
schools like to deliver the goods. But with the help of her dad and the
Sweetgreen restaurant chain, 12-year-old Scottish schoolgirl Martha
Payne released a series of school lunch comparisons from countries
around the world on her blog, where she reviews the school lunches she
and others eat.

From a US or UK perspective, the school lunches in
many other countries seem mouth-wateringly fresh and varied. The
lunches from Brazil and South Korea especially stood out for their
delicious-looking variety. In other countries, unfortunately, lunch
ladies have earned reputations as distributors of foul, toxic
concoctions.”

I notice that the UK isn’t included – we all know what UK school dinners look like and it ain’t half as good as any of these look lol

“Everyone loves animals, but most are aware that if you don’t treat them
with the caution and respect they deserve, they can be very dangerous
indeed. However, some are not so clued up on this fact or either choose
to ignore it at their peril. Here we have several photographs taken just
before disaster struck to illustrate just how cautious you should be at
times.”
