I think we are all sensing it. Buckle up…How is what you do protected from them robots kicking you in the dirt huh?
The Wall Street Journal noted it took the landline telephone 75 years to hit 50 million users. Vala Afshar, the “chief digital evangelist” for Salesforce.com Inc., tweeted that it took airplanes 68 years, the automobile 62 years, light bulbs 46 years, and television 22 years to hit the same user milestones.
YouTube, Facebook and Twitter hit that 50-million user mark in four, three and two years, respectively.
Lots of other industries are being disrupted. Consider the combination of genomics and molecular biology, and what this might mean for longevity and the treatment of diseases. We are seeing it in materials science and architecture, in chemistry and energy storage, in fracking technology and the demise of coal. Big data and artificial intelligence are also changing the way the world works.
What a story! It starts out like this in the paragraph below and, well, it was so darn interesting I read it all. What drives some people? We are all different my friends…
In his 61st year on this earth, the man who calls himself Nimblewill Nomad left home and walked a very long way through the mountains – about 10 million steps, he estimates, or 4,400 miles. Then, he took another, even longer walk. And then another one. And then another. Soon, he had given away almost all of his money and taken to walking almost year-round, roaming the post-industrial wilderness of North America in what he called “a desperate search for peace”.
Wow. So weird watching Nirvana before they hit stardom playing in a…Radioshack of all places #mindblown. I always liked that band, you could feel the raw hurt…
The things you learn blogging. I could be spending my time learning about SEO, affiliate relationships, kissing the ass of “successful” bloggers and promoting the crap out of my blog. Well, I don’t. I spend time researching to bring you some entertaining, educational and sometimes inspiring stories. And stuff you will not read anywhere else. I try anyway. So, here is something I had never heard of!
Since many of you will be spending time at the beach this summer, I want to protect you! If you get bit by or in contact with any of these creatures, this is what you should do! You are welcome!
Here is one of them: Jellyfish
All stings hurt; some can be deadly
The oceans contain thousands of types of jellyfish, ranging from one-millimeter specks to giants with tentacles more than 100 feet long. Stings are common: According to a 2008 National Science Foundation report, about 500,000 people are stung in the Chesapeake Bay every year and another 200,000 in Florida.
Avoid ’em: Keep an eye out for jellyfish in the water, and definitely don’t pick up that colorful, balloonlike thing on the sand — it could be a venomous jellyfish cousin called a Portuguese man-of-war. If you’re stung, rinse with seawater and remove spines with tweezers or the edge of a credit card. Contrary to that “Friends” episode, urinating on a jellyfish sting can make it worse.
These are phucking amazing! This is a must click. Enough said!
You always wanted to know what these things are. Now you know…after reading the infographic below:
