by Tessa on July 22, 2014

It took Harley Davidson 86 years to make to the first billion while it took Twitter only 3 years. Similar is the story of Instagram, Evernote, Pinterest, Yahoo and Paypal. The question now is who’s gonna make the first trillion? The race is on!

You Think You Like Soda? Think Again

by Tessa on July 21, 2014

Sugar, Fructose, Glucose, Sucrose – You can find them all in your favorite soda drink. Ever wondered what is the leading cause of Obesity and Type 2 Diabetes, Cardiovascular Disease and Liver Disease? – well it’s the soft drinks we all love so much. Most of them have more than 50% fructose. Fructose can only be processed in the liver where it is converted to fat, which increases the risk for diabetes. Unlike the fructose in fruits which occurs naturally the large amount that we consume when drinking soda is making us ill. Fructose is the silent killer.

Baby Steps toward Getting Rid of Debt

by Tessa on July 17, 2014

According to a survey by Statistics Canada, there are some 202,200 cooks and 131,000 carpenters in Canada. How comes? It is simple. Real estate prices are soaring. And the gap between income level and real estate prices has widened over the last years, which explains why many Canadians are in a lot of debt. But there is hope on the horizon. Debt to disposable income, which is a major indicator, has improved slightly, showing that Canadians are making financial baby steps toward prudent debt management. It seems that we are getting better at exerting self-control to get the bonus marshmallow from the famous Stanford study of the 60s. And national net worth has increased.

3D printing is a technology that allows us to create three-dimensional objects and customizable products. Methods such as laser sintering, rapid prototyping, and fused deposition modeling are used to create replicas, bionic ears, Lego pieces, and even dinosaur bones. This is not all. 3D printers allow us to design spare parts for appliances. For your dishwasher, for example. This can come as a surprise, but there are companies that make fetus figurines. They use pictures or 4D or 3D ultrasound to create a figurine of your unborn child. Some people love the idea, others find it creepy. In any case, this is a realistic representation and unique gift by any means. And so are monkey handbags and inflatable flowers.

Silver is used to make superconductors, switches, electronic devices, strong alloys, and a lot more. While silver has been mined for millennia, new technologies have led to a rapid rise in production volumes. New technologies such as haulage, mine dewatering, and steam-assisted drilling allow miners to extract large amounts of silver. This is good news because silver plays an important role in medicine. It is used in treatments and technologies that help eliminate antibiotic-resistant germs and reduce the risk for surgical infections. Silver is used in medicine because of its biocidal effects on viruses, fungus, and bacteria. Silver-infused products are used in hospital settings and beyond, helping us fight killer super bugs.

Almost everyone has experienced burnout at some point in life – depression, loss of motivation, hopelessness, and disengagement. With tight schedules and competition for market share, many people in the developed countries are forced into overwork. If you are one of them and your workload has doubled, tell your manager or supervisor that your plate is full. Especially if they ask you to take on more responsibilities. Prioritize and take frequent breaks to extend your life at work. Truly, layoffs still loom, and it is better to have a job. But if you work 14 hours a day and you don’t live in Japan (and even if you do), you are probably working for the wrong company. If you are overworked and underpaid, this is certainly so.
