Penny Boards on the Line!

Travelling has surely become one of the most popular hobby of people..be it of the elders or the youth..people enjoy travelling to the fullest because exploring new places and the way to go to new places is truly exciting. If you pull out social media bios of people you will find wanderlust or love for travel surely mentioned..which obviously tells that people have started working hard so that they can travel all around their city, travel all their country and travel all over the world.

There are certainly a lot of safe ways to travel..and of course they are preferable, but sometimes doing something risky or travelling with a risk(but with full security) brings in an adrenaline rush.

  1. Motorcycle: Motorcycle is a very exciting but a risky way to travel..it is fast but uncovered..although bikes may have the reach to travel on thin roads and rocky terrains, but maintaining a balance might be an issue..and, after you loose your balance, there might be a chance that you may not survive. But, riding a motorcycle is exciting as it is the only vehicle that let’s you feel the weather as it is. It helps you to travel in open air and on small roads. Point to remember: ALWAYS WEAR A HELMET WHILE TRAVELLING ON A MOTORCYCLE.
  2. Airplane: On one hand, airplane is the safest, shortest and easiest way to travel, but on the other hand, it is risky too.. in case of an engine failure of the machine, or in case of any problem in the working of the machine, the whole airplane can lead it’s passengers to horrific deaths. Point to remember: ALWAYS FOLLOW THE SAFETY PROTOCOLS MENTIONED IN THE AIRPLANE AND FOLLOW THE SAFETY PROCEDURES IN CASE OF AN EMERGENCY
  3. Penny Boards: What are penny boards might be your question. Penny boards are a kind of a skateboard..which is made of plastic and it is smaller..penny boards has four wheels and you can travel on it for short distances..penny boards can be risky if the traveler doesn’t know how to handle it’s speed and doesn’t know how to operate it well. POINT TO REMEMBER: PRACTICE WELL BEFORE RIDING A PENNY BOARD AND WEAR PROTECTIVE GEAR WHILE RIDING IT.
  4. Sledge: Dog sledges are generally used in snowy areas as a mode of transportation..these sledges are low sitting and are carried by many dogs at a time. This sledge might be very exciting and exhilarating but they are risky too, as the passenger can easily slide off from the sledge because of the incredible speed of the dog. The sledge can flip over while being used too. POINT TO REMEMBER: TRAVEL ON A SLEDGE WHICH IS OPERATED BY TRAINED DOGS ONLY.
  5. Boats: Boats are a very exciting way to travel but they are risky too, as they are small and cannot carry much loads..they are easily prone to drowning and can cause the passengers to gasp for their lives..especially in water bodies with a high current of water. POINT TO REMEMBER: ALWAYS GET ON A BOAT WITH A LIFE JACKET ON, IT WILL HELP YOU TO FLOAT IN CASE YOU ARE DROWNING.

Travelling with risks are surely exciting and exhilarating but necessary actions and precautions should also be take care of..after all, your life is precious.   


Acne Scars Gone!

Imagine the world where everything is perfect..the perfect life, perfect jobs, perfect dresses, perfect homes and perfect skin, isn’t it so dreamy and gorgeous? I mean everyone would want this world, right? Everyone runs around like a headless chicken working to their utmost potential just to get this kind of world, but have you ever wondered, that have you even stopped for a while to see that what this world really offers? I mean to say, that it is not wrong to dream big and to work hard to achieve your goals..but isn’t it better to halt for some time and at least admire what we have..I mean aren’t we missing out on our present just to make our future better?

I mean sure, I wish to achieve the perfect life..but I am quite content with what I have..I wish to achieve the perfect job, but hey..I feel that I am doing good now and learning a lot from my job..I surely want the perfect dress..but my wardrobe has no space to accommodate even a handkerchief(ahem..shopaholic and hoarder alert!). I even have the perfect pet! Also, so many Facebook friends(It’s important nowadays, you know.)

I surely want the perfect home, but whatever I do, wherever I go, some place or the other would be better than mine(that’s the harsh reality)..so I’m pretty content with the house I’m living in..and when it comes to the perfect skin, my mind goes haywire because I really do wish to have the perfect skin(I mean, who doesn’t)..I know it is something that shouldn’t define me..but hey, a person wants they want..I can at least make myself good about me.

Anyway, I have a LOT OF ACNE..so I tried this product The Ordinary for acne scars …I had heard a lot of times about this product and I had to try. Although I know I am beautiful and will be beautiful, no matter what, but I had to do this..so I started using these multiple products which not only gave me relief from the acne I had but also helped my skin to be healthy and radiant.

  • The Ordinary Vitamin C Suspension 23% + HA Spheres 2%– This product helps to fight the signs of aging and hyperpigmentation. The presence of 30% pure L-ascorbic acid and Hyaluronic Acid reduces the scars caused by acne, smooths the skin and makes it radiant.

  • The Ordinary Peeling Solution 30ml AHA 30% + BHA 2% – With glycolic acid, salicylic acid, and lactic acid, it is a powered exfoliator which reduces fines lines, hyperpigmentation and wrinkles.

These products gave me what I wanted *the perfect skin* (happy cries)

 

 


Happy, Smiling Places!

Working in a good environment is very necessary for a productive mindset and thus, to gain success.. unfortunately, many people do not have access to such good work environment..many people I know face overload of work, biasness from their superior, gender discrimination..these situations also sometimes goes to the extent of workplace harassment..I mean what?? How is it even possible to have the audacity to harass your fellow colleagues.

This kind of environment not only hinders the personal growth of the employees, but it also hinders the overall growth of the company.
Luckily, as a working professional, I have never faced such situations..in fact, I haven’t even heard any one else facing any type of prejudice or any kind of biasness in my company. All I can see is happy employees and hard working, supportive superiors around me..which in my opinion is the secret to a healthy growth.
I would like to take the liberty to speak on behalf of my fellow colleagues that the employee satisfaction of my company is very high..I mean we all are so much fond of our company that we look forward to wake up the next day to go to work..our workplace is the perfect mix of formal and in formal environment which promotes great team building skills and creates a healthy communication atmosphere. 
Along with good work environment, we also have a lot of activities that help us bond as employees..it helps us to increase our social quotient..these activities can be easily inculcated by any company to create a fun and healthy work environment
1) Movie night: Every last Friday of every month is a movie night..every team chose movie of their choice and book slots for three hours on that day for the home theater present in the office complex..all the employees watch their chosen movie and bond over popcorn and sodas. I organized a super emotional movie night last Friday..every one cried(success,!)
2) Potluck lunch: Every Thursday of the second week of every month is potluck lunch day, wherein people bring one dish each from their homes and everyone sit together and eat..they all enjoy home cooked food and bond over delectable food.
3) Workshops: Our company believes that every one has a special talent..so they allow us to organize one workshop on any topic once in a month for one hour(obviously it should not overlap other social activities day)..so I organized a workshop on how to make best comic book frames..every one loved it(especially the comic book nerds- which are surprisingly in a big number)
4) Competitions– Once in every three months, we can organize a competition between teams..it can be sports related or writing skills related..or anything..provided that it remains on friendly terms..I participated in Golgappa eating competition organised by a team..I lost though!
All these things make us light headed and relaxed ao that we could spend the next day in giving our best services and working with full force..the warm environment of my office makes us want to stay longer and the growth opportunities they offer help us to be happy and content..which is a very rare feeling nowadays, given the world we are in.

Click, Click, Click!

Lying in the Tucson sun, scrolling through my phone, seeing people move at their respective pace, I usually wonder that what is the craziest thing happened to human kind? I mean there has been a lot of discoveries but internet has surely caused a frenzy out there. I mean what a wonderful place is the internet!  Internet is also a crazy, crazy place. Anything and everything is available to us since the internet has reached to the masses.The Internet  is ta global system of interconnected computer networks that uses the Internet protocol suite to communicate between networks and devices. It is a network of networks that consists of private, public, academic, business, and government networks of local to global scope, linked by a huge variety of electronic, wireless, and optical networking technologies. The Internet carries a broad range of information resources and services, such as the inter-linked hypertext documents and applications of the World Wide Web (WWW), electronic mail, telephony, and file sharing. Internet is home to various websites and web pages and every website has a unique URL(Uniform Resource Locator).

Internet is a saving grace for today’s generation as it is highly useful in every aspect of life and nowadays, almost every household has an internet service provider because be it a child, an adult or an old person, everyone requires internet. Common methods of Internet access by users include broadband with a computer modem through telephone circuits, broadband over coaxial cable, fiber optics or copper wires, Wi-Fi, satellite, and cellular telephone technology (e.g. 3G, 4G). Taking the current situation in mind, internet is the pillar on which our whole society is resting, that is, studying is online, work is online, shopping is online , dating is online and even getting married is online(true story). You surely got the gist of it that internet is one of the most important tool we possess.

There are some websites that have made way into our homes and lives to make our lives easier, they are called E commerce websites . These websites save us time, money and efforts as we can do everything while sitting at home, there is no need to go out and shop extensively as they provide us with an instant home delivery option. With the likes of websites like Amazon our shopping experience has become a treat as it can be done while sitting on your bed, sipping tea without any hassle. In places like shops and malls, there is a lot of crowd to deal with, moreover, a lot of unwanted options and unsolicited opinions come our way, so to avoid the chaos offline, shopping online is a way better option. Everything from a pin to an airplane is available on the internet, be it the soap you use or the food that you eat or the clothes and shoes you wear, everything is affordable, authentic and available. Not only junk food, but best health food stores in Tucson are also just a click away. An affordable, quick and hassle free way to shop is the in thing and I guess this process would surely last for a while as it has made people more carefree and relaxed.


Sisters Before Misters!

Just when I think that I couldn’t be luckier, my sister goes ahead and does something unthinkable. My elder sister is not actually my sister, she is my second mother, although she is only five years elder to me but she has been a nurturing person since I was born, as my mother told me that my I always fell asleep in my sister’s lap and she gladly offered help to my mother even though she was herself a child, as we grew up, she knew that I was a shy and a coy child, she always taught me to be tough because she knew that the world is cruel and if I don’t toughen up, I won’t be able to face the world, all by myself. Since we were kids, she made me watch WWE because she wanted me learn some moves for my self defense, in fact, when I was seven years old, I was climbing up to my house(I lived on first floor), a man came up to me and he engaged me in a conversation, I was a child and couldn’t figure out his motives so I kept talking, while talking I suddenly felt his hands on my thigh and then he started going up, suddenly I started feeling uncomfortable and then I remembered what my sister had taught me, to be tough, so I mustered up all my courage and hit that man hardly with my leg and ran away from his clutches. I might’ve been kidnapped or molested, but my sister’s teachings came into handy.

Later in life, my sister became my best friend, I shared everything with her, from my dissapointments to achievements, from my boy troubles to my happiness, you get the gist of it-EVERYTHING. As I turned eighteen , I started demanding my parents to send me on a trip with my friends, alone and obviously, my parents denied, I did everything to convince them- I cried, blackmailed them, requested them, but nothing seemed to work. Then, my sister wore the cape and came to my rescue, I do not know how but she managed to convince them. I was cloud nine. Although, she was a little skeptical(was concerned about my safety) and upset(she couldn’t convince our parents for her own trips) but she was even more excited than me and finally, I took the trip. This incident made me believe that she indeed is my super woman!

When my sister got married to the love of her life, I was the happiest person on the face of this earth, I was the most excited and I danced the most, but somewhere deep inside I was worried that now her love for me will be reduced because now she would be moving to her husband’s house. While dancing on the dance floor, I excused myself for a minute because I had tears in my eyes , of course she saw it and ran after me to check if I was okay. In the beginning I denied that I will not miss her or I will be happy to sleep on the bed alone(the old sibling corny arguments) but inside, I knew I will miss her the most. She then kissed me on my head and said that for her, it will always be sisters before misters. We both hugged each other and thought it was an Instagram worthy moment, we clicked some really cool pictures, saw some sister insta caption ideas and posted them instantly.

It is rightly said-“Sister. She is your mirror, shining back at you with a world of possibilities. She is your witness, who sees you at your worst and best, and loves you anyway. She is your partner in crime, your midnight companion, someone who knows when you are smiling, even in the dark. She is your teacher, your defense attorney, your personal press agent, even your shrink. Some days, she’s the reason you wish you were an only child.”

Why are Gujaratis the best business people

If you are lucky to have a Gujarati friend like I do, you must have got some insights into how the mind of Gujarati people works. While there are Gujaratis who have their jobs, owning and running a business on their own is a hereditary trait that makes them think about business like nobody else. One of the most interesting things about Gujaratis who work under someone else is that they will try and learn all they can to start a business of their own. To add to it, most Gujaratis have family businesses. All they have to do is just take the baton from their fathers or whoever elderly runs the business.

Apart from the hereditary factor, there are many other things which account for the steady growth of Gujaratis as entrepreneurs. The next generation of entrepreneurs coming for Gujarat are tech-savvy. They have a holistic approach when it comes to operating a business. They focus on taking the business to a global stage. They use the power of the internet to make the business operation smooth. They keep innovating and trying out new things. This is one of the crucial factors that make Gujaratis top business people not just in India but all over the world.

I have a friend who is the owner of a top Ahmedabad SEO company. He talks about business to me and I have learned a lot from him. When I was starting my business, it was he who helped me with the basics. Now when I want to take my business online, I searched for the top Ahmedabad SEO company and found him. This is how innovative they are. They spread their business far and wide and there is a high chance of finding a Gujarati in all the major business sectors in the world.

One thing that I really like about Gujaratis is that they are risk-takers. When they start a business, they take the full responsibility to run it and bring it to the top. You can find Gujaratis migrating to the remotest corners of the world to set up their business. They are ready to tackle any threat coming their way. They are the real risk-takers in the world of business.

Another thing that really intrigues me about Gujarati business people is their sense of adaptation. They can evolve and adapt to any kind of situation to make their business functional and profitable. If a work is deemed to bring them money, they are going to try all the variations to turn that into a full-fledged business.

Aso, there’s a strong sense of community in Gujaratis. They are always ready to help their community members in growing. Collective strength is what makes them successful in the long run.

Those were some of the best things about the Gujarati business people. Hope you found this information useful.


Best countries to live in the world

Everybody has a dream to go on a foreign tour and if possible, settle themselves abroad. When you say, settling abroad it does not mean picking out any country of the globe, packing your luggage and just walking away. There are certain prospects and requirements to choose that country. Here we are going to discuss those prospects, why you should choose that country to live in.

1. Personal freedom

The first thing you should have in your life is freedom. You cannot think of a life where there is no freedom. Freedom does not mean you are under someone’s supervision. Freedom means you have the right to speak about your feelings, you can do whatever you like (all the legal work), practice your religion without hurting others’ sentiments.

2. Cost of living

The cost of living varies from country to country. For example, Switzerland is the most expensive country to live in followed by Norway, Iceland, Japan and more. You cannot cut down some of the expenses like food, accommodation, utilities. So, you must go through the cost of expenses you can afford to move on.

3. Healthcare

In this competitive world, you forget the value of your health and ignore spending some time on it. So before moving check through the healthcare facilities and healthcare insurance available in that country. No doubt, many of the developed countries consist of top-class hospitals, equipment and services. Many of the European countries, the United States, the gulf countries like the UAE have the best hospitality care for all kinds of diseases. One of the most interesting things about the UAE is that it has the best insurance policies for any category. You will be amazed to know that some of the best Insurance companies in the UAE also have their presence in most of the European countries. 

4. Education and Jobs

Education and Jobs are one of the important factors that should be given importance when you are thinking of moving to a different country. Because education is the greatest gift that cannot be earned by money. It is the process through which you can acquire knowledge, skill, value, and moral habits. It is also very important to improve knowledge, way of living along with the social and economic status of your life. With better education, you can expect a better job. Opportunities are many. You must have the courage to follow them and move forward. Job is not only an income source but also defines your standard of living and status in your society. So move to a country where you find a better opportunity in education and jobs and having low unemployment as the rate of unemployment is increasing day by day.

5. Safety and Security

Every year IEP releases a Global Peace Index report of different countries. Follow the list and make up your mind to choose the country based on the safety and security followed there. Take a proper survey of the rate of robbery, pickpocket, thieves, terrorists, a natural disaster takes place. Measure the happiness of the citizen of the country.

Many people want to enjoy the natural beauty present around their surroundings and some on the high skyscrapers around them. If you are a natural lover look for natural destinations like mountains, beaches, waterfall, the natural scenario for pure air, and a peaceful mind. And if you love to be around Manhattan, there are various countries such as Italy, Japan, the US, UAE, Switzerland and more.

So, taking into account the above-mentioned points, you would find it easy and have a better idea to pick out the best country to live in the world.


Spirulina Cures Acne

Spirulina has been associated with all manner of health benefits in recent years, but one of the most intriguing suggestions is that it may help with cases of acne. It is a microscopic filamentous alga which is typically blue-green in colour. It has been recognised for its nutritional properties, and contains over 150 different nutrients. b

Apart from its nutritious values, how does it help with acne?

Acne is caused when the cortisol levels go up in your body, it prompts the sebaceous glands in your skin to produce the oily substance sebum which keeps the skin moist and flexible. When an excess of sebum is produced, the oil clogs the pores on your face and causes inflammation. This leads to oily skin, which further leads to blocked pores leading to acne.

Some key uses of Spirulina Acne are,

It is known for its anti-inflammatory properties that help reduce acne, swelling, redness, and prevent further breakouts as well.

Affects sebum production and reduces skin inflammation 

Excessive sebum production and inflammation plays a vital role in cases of acne. When the sebaceous glands become blocked, the bacteria that are present in your pores can start to build up. This, in turn, leads to the body initiating an inflammatory response to try and deal with the microbes. It is this inflammation that contributes to acne looking red and swollen. Fresh Spirulina helps acne because of its phycocyanin content which is one of nature’s most powerful anti-inflammatory substances. It also increases the skin’s metabolism, which enables faster healing and also prevents bacteria overgrowth.

In a recent study, researchers have found that taking 2 grams of Spirulina a day for twelve weeks can down-regulate allergies in, leading to significantly reduced inflammation and acne.

Hydrates the skin 

The gamma linolenic acid contained in spirulina helps to support the layer of the skin responsible for retaining moisture. In doing so, the skin stays healthier, better hydrated and demonstrates improved elasticity. Such impacts can be beneficial for acne prone skin. Also, it’s antioxidant properties has the potential to protect the skin from free radical damage, helping to keep skin young-looking and healthy.

For acne sufferers, a healthy intake of vitamin B12 from spirulina may help to ensure that the skin heals quickly after any bout of spots.

Offers Exceptional levels of Protein 

It is about 50% – 70% protein by dry weight, used as the building blocks for making collagen. Consuming high-protein foods will necessarily benefit acne directly, keeping your skin plump, healthy and certainly won’t do any harm. Studies have shown that spirulina for twelve weeks experienced better skin hydration, which was also reflected in less dry skin, irritation, and itchiness.

Recommended use of Spirulina to cure acne

Spirulina is available in tablet or powder forms. One can add it to smoothies, shakes or even drink it with water. It is also available in the form of face scrubs, serums, creams and even sheet masks. When used regularly, it improves the blood circulation, detoxifies and refines skin complexion. Also, defends the skin from free radicals and treats dull and lacklustre skin.

 Spirulina retains the miracle compound which makes it a great and powerful natural remedy for dealing with acne.

 

 

 


Cretan Hound-The ball of energy

A girl named Lily was absolutely bewildered as to what kind of breed she wanted, but she knew exactly what kind of dog she wanted to buy, so absolutely puzzled she went to a woman whom she knew dealt with dogs and knew all about different breeds. Lily went ahead and explained what kind of canine she wanted.

Lily (to the woman) : I want an affectionate, playful and loyal pet. The dog should be intelligent, well polished, self disciplined , prompt and skillful. I want a dog who can be an excellent watchdog, it should be curious enough to notice strangers and notify my family if it finds something strange. I want a dog which zestful and full of energy, and hence, loves to go for long walks and runs as I love to go on hikes and treks.

I live in a big house, the garden is big, so a lot of stray animals visit often and try to get into the house, the dog should have a strong sense of smell so that it could sense all the other animals before they could enter my house, but it should also be easygoing when pets of my friends come to visit. It should be able to exist with other animal because I have other pets too. It should be social with my family, friends and other pets.

Woman : I think I know which breed will be best suited to you according to your requirements, it is the Cretan Hound.  Let me tell you somethings about  it’s origin and appearance, then you can make a final decision. Cretan Hound is a purebred dog which was earlier reared for coursing, it was bred extensively during the Minoan civilization that blossomed approximately from 3000 BC to 1100 BC, because Crete’s island was cut off from other places, these dogs did not come in contact with other breeds for a long time.Moreover, they were protected by the Cretans, who mostly kept them pure, and it is believed that the hound today mostly looks like it did in the early days. The dog was further exported to other parts of Greece and then to other parts of Europe, and one can now find breeds in these places that have evolved from the this breed.

As far as appearance is concerned, it grows up to twenty to twenty seven inches in height and up to twenty to thirty kilograms in weight. It has a medium to large built with a lean , muscular and athletic body. It is longer than it is tall,  it has a long wedge-shaped head; almond-shaped eyes;  a dark nose; ears that are erect, a strong and sturdy chest and thin muscular legs. it’s busy tail has curled hair upwards and falls towards its head in a ring form. The hair that is longer at the tail’s base makes it look like a brush. It has a short, smooth and hard coat. It comes in many colors, such as, cream, black, brindled, grey, fawn and white. This robust canine usually is low maintenance , much grooming is unnecessary , just some regular brushing, cleaning, and flea treatment is needed.  It mainly needs a lot of physical exercise.

Lily: Now I am excited! This dogs seems to be exactly what I want in a pet. I cannot wait to buy one, after all a dog is a friend and loyal companion for a lifetime!
