8. Impressive COFFEE Facts & Effects Of CAFFEINE

  • The effects of caffeine start showing 15-20 minutes after the first sip.
  • Caffeine affects our brain in a similar way to cocaine.
  • Coffee beans come from the coffee plant’s red berries.
  • A cup of coffee contains approx. 100 mg of caffeine.
  • The effects of painkillers are increased by up to 40% when combined with caffeine.
  • Your daily caffeine dose shouldn’t exceed 400 mg.
  • 12 to 17 year-old constitute the most rapidly growing group of coffee consumers.
  • Smokers metabolize caffeine up to 50% faster than non-smokers.
  • Finnish people drink the most coffee worldwide.
  • Caffeine is processed faster in women than in men.

Journey of Coffee from Tree to your Cup

Coffee travels a long way before reaching your coffee mug.
Here are some more interesting coffee facts:
It takes three-to-four years for a coffee seed to grow into a tree that produces coffee beans.
Seeds are first planted in nurseries. Six months to one-year later, seedlings are transplanted to open fields. Workers must prepare the planting ground for the small seedlings by loosening and grading the soil.
Approximately two-and-a-half years after transplantation, the trees begin to flower and the flowers produce a small fruit known as a coffee cherry. In the center of each cherry are two green coffee beans.
Coffee plants grow best where there is plenty of rainfall at certain times of the year and thrive in a well-drained, rich, volcanic soil. The plant does not like sudden changes in temperature, and frost can severely damage or kill it.
During harvest, coffee cherries are hand picked. It takes approximately 2,000 cherries — 4,000 beans — to produce one pound of roasted coffee.
After being husked, sorted and bagged, the green coffee beans are shipped from the countries where they were grown to the countries where they will be manufactured and consumed.
Manufacturing involves the roasting and grinding of the coffee beans, or the production of instant coffee. Once manufacturing and packaging are completed, the coffee is ready for the consumer.
The leading coffee producing countries of the world are Brazil and Colombia.
 
The United States imports and consumes more coffee than any other country.
 

Is Drinking Coffee Good or Bad for your health?

Drinking large amounts of coffee can cause a spike in blood pressure and heart rate. Studies have suggested that coffee increases heart rate, thanks to caffeine’s impact on hormones and neurotransmitters. But drinking coffee in moderation—one to three cups per day–shouldn’t have a noticeable impact on a healthy adult.

Flight Tracker Visualizes June 30 as one of the Busiest Days ever in Air Travel

The best live flight radar app I have ever used – Flight Radar 24.

The skies look a lot more crowded today than they did a century ago.

At any given moment, there are 9700 airplanes traveling through the air on average. Saturday, June 30 was an especially busy day for air travelers: Flightradar24 recorded 202,157 flights, the most the flight-tracking app has ever documented in a single day.

Since 2006, people have used Flightradar24 to see visualizations of aircraft making trips around the world.

Each tiny yellow plane depicted on their map uses data from airlines and airports, and users can click the icons to learn the route, model, speed, altitude, and departure and arrival time of each craft.

Flightradar24 is a Swedish internet-based service that shows real-time commercial aircraft flight information on a map. It includes flight tracks, origins and destinations, flight numbers, aircraft types, positions, altitudes, headings and speeds.

Do you know that Artificial Intelligence in 2019 can predict your death?

Artificial_Intelligence_Can_Predict_Human_Death

Last Updated: 22nd January, 2019

Yes, it’s true. Artificial Intelligence can be used as a death factoring calculator. Case studies have proved that AI can predict metastatic cancer and deaths caused by heart attack. Let’s deep dive how? Google is creating an Artificial Intelligence (AI) system that can be used to predict a patient’s death—Simply astonishing.

Google’s Medical Brain team is using a new type of Artificial Intelligence algorithm that can make predictions about the likelihood of death among hospital patients. The company claims that the AI can predict when a patient might die more accurately than other traditional models used by doctors.

Artificial Intelligence (AI) systems are clearly taking the world by storm. AI technology is revolutionizing the world and is prevalent in almost every facet of our lives:

  • The way we purchase items.
  • The way we communicate.
  • The way we move across the world.

These days, AI is pushing its boundaries further and entering into the deadly territories: Death Prediction.

What is Artificial Intelligence?

Artificial Intelligence is a branch of Computer Science which aims to make machines simulate Human Intelligence Tasks/Processes. These systems usually make predictions using a technique referred to as Machine Learning.

How does Google AI make Predictions?

Artificial Intelligence Can Predict Your Death

The system works by chewing up data about various details of a patient such as age, gender, ethnicity, previous diagnosis, present signs, and laboratory results.

What’s more, the system can also take data buried on charts and PDFs and use it for making predictions.

After testing the algorithm, Google found out that it could make death predictions with an astonishing accuracy level of 95%, which is 10% more accurate than the traditional models.

In one of the case studies, the Google AI software crunched about 176,000 data points of the records of a woman with metastatic cancer and pronounced that she had a 19.9% chance of dying in the hospital. The doctors at the hospital had given her a 9.3% chance of dying.

Amazingly, as predicted by the AI software, the woman died after two weeks—beating the doctors at their own game.

Although the Google’s AI may not be perfect at predicting deaths, it would continue to perform better as it is ‘taught’ with more data.

Therefore, if this breakthrough healthcare technology is improved, it can reduce human error in medicine and lead to more lives being saved.

The Gelmer Funicular in Switzerland – Steepest in Europe

Planning for a Switzerland trip? Then do ride the best Switzerland Mountain Coaster which has a speed of 2mt/sec.

Speed 2 metres per second (6.6 ft/s)
Journey time 10 mins
Capacity 24 passengers per car; 60 persons in each direction per hour

The Gelmer Funicular is a funicular railway in the canton of Bern, Switzerland. Are you looking for things to do in Switzerland and also ready for an adrenaline rush? Then watch this video !!!

With an inclination of up to 106% (no, that’s not a typo), this funicular is the steepest of its kind in Europe. It was originally built to transport heavy construction materials for the Gelmer dam, however, nowadays it is open for adventure-seeking hikers.

It’s not that high speed as it looks, although it’s just that the filming is high speed.

It’s a cog railroad, slow and steady and very safe.

In a blink, the funicular makes its way to the Gelmer valley 1860 meter above sea level.

It’s a Great adventure ride for families and anyone who enjoys glacier-covered mountain views without the effort.

There’s just one more thing: to reach the funicular you have to cross the Handeck suspension bridge, which hangs some 70 metres above the Handeck Gorge.

Venue name: Gelmer Funicular

Address: Guttannen 
Opening hours: The line operates from the beginning of June through to mid-October, in daylight hours only.

Manikarnika: The Queen of Jhansi

Manikarnika-Queen-of-Jhansi

National-award winning actress, the feisty Kangana Ranaut will be seen playing the courageous Rani Laxmibai in Manikarnika: The Queen of Jhansi next year.

The story is based on the famous Jhansi ki Rani.

Directed by Telugu film-maker Krish, the movie is hands down one of the highly-anticipated films of 2019.

maxresdefault (2).jpg

Speculations were rife that the magnum opus has been postponed due to the fact that it involves heavy VFX.

Rani Laxmibai was a freedom fighter and thus, it only seemed apt for the makers that the project is screened in the month of our Independence. Rani Lakshmibai’s battle against the Britishers was the first fight for freedom, so looking at the emotion, the call was taken to release it in August 2018, however the film’s release has now been postponed.

As per latest information from the sets of Manikarnika, Krish’s focus has shifted to the NTR biopic, co-starring Nandamuri Balakrishnan and Vidya Balan, thus Kangana Ranaut decided to complete the film in time to release next year on Republic Day.

Krish assigned his dates to the NTR biopic, which is also slated to release in the first half of 2019.

Google Celebrates 130th Birth Anniversary of Oskar Schlemmer with a Doodle

oskar-schlemmers-130th-birthday

Happy Birthday, Oskar Schlemmer ! Google celebrates the 130th Birth Anniversary of German painter, sculptor, designer and choreographer Oskar Schlemmer, who was a German artist and choreographer known for both his paintings and ballet productions.

His best-known work, The Triadic Ballet (1922), reflected Schlemmer’s interest in the convergence of colors, shapes, and human movement.

“If today’s arts love the machine, technology, and organization, if they aspire to precision and reject anything vague and dreamy, this implies an instinctive repudiation of chaos and a longing to find the form appropriate to our times,” he once said.

Born on September 4, 1888 in Stuttgart, Germany, he studied both design and fine arts as a young man. Wounded while serving in World War I, after returning to his hometown in 1916, Schlemmer helped spearhead updating the Stuggart Academy of Fine Arts curriculum and attempted to have Paul Klee appointed as a faculty member. He went on to teach at Walter Gropius’s Weimar Bauhaus before the advent of the Nazi regime during the early 1930s. Over the following decade, the artist’s life was drastically altered by the Nazi’s restrictions, forcing him to earn a living working a lacquer factory and paint traditional portraits and landscapes. Schlemmer died on April 13, 1943 in Baden-Baden, Germany.

Today, his works are held in the collections of The Museum of Modern Art in New York, the National Gallery in Washington, D.C., and the Albertina in Vienna, among others.

Soft Pastel Drawing

Put your best pencils and doodle art to one side – it’s time to delve into the art of pastel drawing. In use by artists for centuries, pastels are an especially portable medium, enabling you to create colourful art with no need for water, brushes or palettes.

What exactly is a pastel?

A pastel is an art medium in the form of a stick, consisting of pure powdered pigment and a binder. The pigments used in pastels are the same as those used to produce all colored art media, including oil paints; the binder is of a neutral hue and low saturation. The color effect of pastels is closer to the natural dry pigments than that of any other process.

Reddit – More than 10K views – Most Popular

Reddit surpasses Facebook and become’s the 3rd most visited site in the US

According to Alexa – the Amazon-owned web traffic analyzing platform – more people now visit Reddit than Facebook in the US.

Spotted, of course, on Reddit by user IamATechieNerd, the stats will be a big boost for the social sharing platform, especially with many users still irked about the recent re-design.

It’s important to note that analyzing web traffic using a tool like Alexa is not an exact science, but it’s interesting that it has now put Reddit ahead of Facebook.

If the stats are to be believed, Google is still the most visited site, followed by YouTube, Reddit, and Facebook, with Amazon rounding out the top five.

On average, Reddit users spend 15 minutes and 10 seconds on it everyday, a figure substantially higher than its competitors. Google users spend 7 minutes 16 seconds, YouTube 8 minutes 31 seconds, Facebook 10 minutes 50 seconds and Amazon 7 minutes 37 seconds on the sites each day.

This isn’t great news for Facebook on the face of things. The social media company’s audience is ageing and shifting to other platforms and, with the Cambridge Analytica scandal, the company’s lost a lot of sheen.

Still, the Facebook-owned Instagram and WhatsApp are thriving, so Zuckerberg won’t be panicking too much yet.

Whether long-term Reddit users will be happy with this increased traffic is another matter. But, let’s be honest, when are they ever satisfied?
