Showdown at high spoon

If you're not one for parties with formal table settings, there is a simple that will keep you from committing a cutlery gaffe. Start with the outermost and work your way in. There is an exception a soup spoon may be needed before you get to the next fork on the far left but it should be obvious that even the most rigid person doesn't forks for soup.      

Bread is the most common way people mess up on etiquette, at least in the minds of those with an eye for such things. Instead of sitting into a whole roll, put it on your bread plate and tear off bite – size pieces to butter and eat. You should also check your napkin use once everyone at your table is seated unfold the napkin and lay it across your lap. When you finish eating and leave the table, loosely crumple your napkin to hide any stains and set it to the left of your plate.

The great pyramid of GIZA

The great pyramid at Giza is one of the world's most amazing landmarks. Rising high above the Sahara desert in the Giza region of northern Egypt, the great pyramid stands some 450 feet into the burning desert sky and occupier an area of 30 acre. The tough climate of the Sahara has actually caused the pyramid to shrink 30 feet from it's original height. The pyramid was such an amazing feat of engineering, that it remained the tallest structure in the world for over 38000 years! The entire pyramid was originally faced with foolished limestone to make it shine brilliantly in the sun. 
      Most Egyptologists. Scientists who study ancient Egypt agree that he great pyramid was build around 560 'BC, a little more than 4500 'years ago. It took tense of thousands of workers twenty years to build. The pyramid contains over two million stone blocks, although most of the blocks weigh two or three tones. Some way up to 80 tons!                                  

The great pyramid of Giza was ordered was ordered built by the pharaoh Khufu as a magnificent tomb. His vizier ( adviser ) is credited with being the pyramid’s architect. Khufu’s pyramid . is actually part of a complex of pyramid that includes the pyramid of khafre . the smaller pyramid of Menkaure, a variety of smaller pyramid and structure and the great Sphinx the great pyramid of Giza is the last remaining of the seven wonders of the world.

Global warming

Economists have rightly emphasised the risk to globalization from economic and financial instability. They have ignored environmental destruction, and the resulting global warming which is now the central global concern.  Fast -growing middle – income nations, such as China, Malaysia and India, have a big in globalisation and therefore, in confronting this environmental danger. their rise has been tied to globalisation. They have doubled their trade in the past decade, and by liberalising commercial policies, have also helped others gain. To China, Indonesia as well as India, environmental outcomes have a special significance. They posses 60℅ of the world’s fresh water resources, 60% of the forests, much of the coral reefs, and valuable biodiversity. But they also face massive degradation of air, forest, land, fresh water and marine resources, with the rise in population, adding up to high cost. The atmosphere concentration of carbon dioxide reached 379 parts per million in 2005 compared to a pre industrial, level of 280 ppm. scientists concur that to avoid massive climatic instability, the change in global temperature ought not to be more than 2°C above are industrial levels. To secure that outcome with some certainly, the concentration of carbon dioxide needs to stay below 400 ppm. Rich countries like the united states, Japan and the European nations are by far the most responsible for this and other greenhouse gas emissions in per capita terms. so they must propel mitigation measures to improve efficiency and protect the environment. But middle income countries now account for half of the emissions, and they, would not want to emulate the poor example set by rich countries. In Brazil, China and India, air and water pollution. Is severely impairing peoples health and productivity in the workplace with a direct impact on grow’ prospects. Moreover, globalisation has speeded the spill – over of these damages. Growth fuelled by energy – intensive industry, urban crowding, and deforestation has added to atmospheric concentrations of carbon, warming land and ocean and bringing extreme weather. In turn climate change threatens to crode coastlines and provoke drought and floods, in rich countries and poor. A clear link is ’emerging between’ deforestation and soil degradation on the one side, and the fastest ‘ rising natural disasters, which are floods and wind storms, on the other, societal benefits of abating high levels of emission far outweigh the costs of doing so. Economists and policy makers have not drawn the implication of the calculations for the reform agenda, be it in trade, energy, or i infrastructure. Sadly, the cost of such neglect are large. Also, no country, rich or poor, has enough motivation to confront global problems alone. Because only a part of the benefits of addressing those problems would accrue to countries taking action. While others could have a free ride. The gains are also spread over time, beyond the horizon of politicians’ interest. Such situations call for collective action even if they are not easy when many verse countries are involved. The crucial question is how to be countries might participate in collective measures to mitigate environmental threats to growth. One opening involves avoiding deforestation. Cutting down forests accounts for a fifth of the emissions , more than those from all transportation. by protecting their forests, countries can reduce carbon emissions in the atmosphere, paving the way for new markets for tradable emission permits that would compensate them for the protection. Whether and how quickly the environment is accorded top priority will determine the future of the world economy.

Savings

The way to save money

Of the many that have taken place thanks to liberalisation, a major one is that today’s youngster are earning more than ever before. In some cases, they draw even flatter salaries than their parents. But Are they blowing it up or sensibly saving it? Some of them go in for mutual funds and tax saving bonds. Some even go in for investments which give them tax breaks – insurance home loans, mutual funds savings schemes. In fact the average person taking a housing loan has come down from 35 to 25 in the last five years, now where they get their investment advice from? Some feel it’s a combination of friends, family, broker advisers the media. And the net.

Nature vs. Human

In the past, man’s worst enemy was nature. He lived under the continual threat of famine and pestilence, a wet summer could bring death to the whole nation and every winter was menace. Mountains stood like barrier between people and sea was less a highway than an impassable division. Today nature. thought still an enemy, is an enemy almost completely conquered. Modern agriculture assures us of an ample food supply. Modern transportation has made the resources of the entire planet accessible to all it’s inhabitants, modern medicine and sanitation allow dense population to cover the ground without risk of pestilence. True, we are still at the mercy of the more violent nature convulsions. Against earthquake, hurricane man has as yet, devised no adequate protection. At most times, nature is no longer formidable,she has subdued.
