Fille.lv Keep your boots safe

Recently I finished a new home page for new start-up, called Apavu Sargs . The target audience is women, car-drivers. The problem product solves is footwear damage that is caused while women driving a car. Pressing gas and break pedals causes friction to the bottom part of the shoes, that causes scratching off the heels. Especially the right foot, that is used for gas. By wearing the product over the shoe while driving it prevents show damage. And everyone knows how much women loves their shoes (:.

Over and out.

Lose-Lose situation

Image
The other day I saw a guy with 2nd day beard, and out of bed hairstyle. It did look that these were his intentions to look bearded and stinky. Of course, he did not stink, but his outfit suggested otherwise. Who knows who he wanted to impress  But seriously, the stink was the only missing thing from his outfit, and that lack of stink made him look fake. So using that kind of outfit really puts person in lose-lose situation. If he stinks, he repulse people with the stink. If he does not stink, he looks fake. So, at the end of the day, what's the point?

Your alter ego

Our DNA contains all our genetic material. But it contains more than that. It actually contains twice as much information what is used in our physical bodies for producing the proteins that makes what we are including our physical appearance.

Wouldn't it be interesting to know the other half of  the information our DNA contains?

Well, probably in not so far future it might be one of very exciting ways to spend couple of thousands of dollars to ask scientists to make up a real photo for your alter ego. The procedure could be quiet simple. You would sign the contract with the company that no information from your DNA would be given out to third parties and some other legal stuff. Then you would be guided to the laboratory where scientists would take a little blood from you to get some of your stem cells. Then scientists would extract the DNA from the stem cell and split each of the chromosomes into two chromatides. Now all that information would be read and uploaded to the computer,…

Why do some peeps dislike Hijabs

Image
Human rights and freedoms in Europe has deep roots. Many citizens, especially the youngest ones, take that for granted. Everyone is free to choose his/her religion and express their own opinion, wear clothes to express their personality without fear of discrimination.  Even for all that being true, many of old Europe citizens feel dislike when they see Hijabs. In France Hijabs are banned from schools.
So here is why I think we dislike Hijabs. Muslim woman is wearing Hijab because the God made an obligation for them to do so. And if they wear the Hijab, they are pure inside and God likes and helps them. So indirectly that implies that woman who do not wear  Hijab are dirty and impure. Woman dressing normally might feel insulted by those who wear Hijab and thus they feel dislike.
I really see there no problem. Woman should be wearing whatever she feels comfortable in. If it is Hijab she feels comfortable in - let it be Hijab. Even thought I highly doubt Hijab is  comfortable  in hot su…

Future of education

Image
Education is evolving continuously as civilization matures. The first university opened more than thousand years ago. There are new experimental teaching methods purposed all the time. For example Khan Academy is purposing teaching through watching videos. The idea stands behind one Indian men Khan, who is exceptionally good teacher. He makes math, physics, history, biology and other science classes fun, interesting to listen, easy understandable, so he has recorded thousands of videos himself teaching all these classes. Could that be the future of education? Well, i really doubt so, because Khan is not trying to monetize his project. It is however a very good supplement to the current education system.

Now, let me tell what I think future education will look like. Kids wont carry heavy bags around, but they will be replaced with tablets. That is obvious, one tablet can carry more than hundreds of bags and is less heavy. Most of test will be replaced by automated electronic tests. Th…

My contribution for the Wikipedia

I always admire the people who spend their time on making worlds biggest encyclopedia articles and corrections. A long time ago I published one article in Wikipedia about the town I spent most of my teenage years called Gaujiena, or on ancient times Atzele. Up until this day, nothing has really changed in this wikipedia article, bu there is another good article about the Atzele in new Apes district hope page, here.
