“I’m so bored.” How many times a week do you utter that phrase? If it’s at least once, you’re in the same boat as roughly 63% of people . And according to the same report that drew that conclusion, how bored you are depends on several factors -- like location and other demographics. But chances are, we all have at least one common outlook on boredom: It can be remedied by the internet. That often manifests itself via mobile, where 90% of our time is spent on apps . And under the app umbrella, here's how our time is broken down : Messaging and social: 68% Entertainment (which includes apps like YouTube): 44% Gaming: 33% To add further insight, 70% of that time on mobile social apps is spent consuming media . What do these factors indicate? All in all, we use our mobile devices to stay amused. App developers are no dummies, either. The most strategic ones know that this boredom can be capitalized to earn revenue.

The chain has now taken the step to recall the product because it has a low level of thiamine...

It should also be done for commercial vehicles such as busses and trucks,” Gadkari said. Permits such as Contract Carriage Buses Permits, stage carrier permits, goods carriers, maxi cab, radio taxis and all India tourist permit are given to different categories of commercial vehicles by state governments. Getting and renewing these permits is a time-consuming and a costly affair for vehicle owners. Gadkari said he’s also working on a scheme where state transport corporations can get all their old buses converted to electric vehicles. “For both these schemes, we’ll be talking to state governments. To start with, we can go ahead and remove national permits at least,” he said. Gadkari has also proposed various subsidies for electric vehicles and is already in talks with the finance ministry to get necessary exemptions. Several factors including high vehicle cost, power outages, and dearth of facilities for eco-friendly disposal of batteries to curb pollution are the factors inhibiting Indians from buying electric vehicles.

China's explosive growth as the world's factory powerhouse is almost impossible to overstate: the largest migration in human history took place when 80 million young women left the provinces to come to the Pearl River Delta for the new manufacturing jobs, and China began building new megacities across its landmass to serve as the hubs for new factories and industries, consuming as much cement between 2011 and 2013 as the whole US used during the whole 20th century.

How do molecules rotate in a solvent? Answering this question is complicated, since molecular rotation is perturbed by a very large number of surrounding atoms. For a long time, large-scale computer simulations have been the main approach to model molecule-solvent interactions. However, they are extremely time consuming and sometimes infeasible. Now, Mikhail Lemeshko from the Institute of Science and Technology Austria (IST Austria) has proven that angulons—a certain type of quasiparticle he proposed two years ago—do, in fact, form when a molecule is immersed in superfluid helium. This offers a quick and simple description for rotation of molecules in solvents.

Alarming Statistics About Fast Food In America 50 million people are served daily in America by fast food restaurants – that is more than the entire population of Canada eating at McDonalds at the same time. 75 McDonald’s hamburgers are served every second. 44% of people are eating out at least once a week. On any day, 34% of children between the ages of 2 and 19 are consuming fast food. The average American is spending $1,200 annually on fast food. According to the American Beverage Association, American consumers, on average drink more than 54,000 gallons of carbonated soft drinks each year. The issue that I find the most troubling about these statistics is that in this day and age it is basically common knowledge that fast food is not good for you to consume and could actually be the cause of numerous health problems that are most prevalent today.

She was able to suggest cosmetic changes that would be cost- and time-effective such as refinishing the walls. One wall was given a slim brick façade and painted white, one was given horizontal wooden panels from floor to ceiling, some walls kept the existing concrete, and a few were covered in a palm print wallpaper. The process might have been more expensive and time consuming than the three had originally expected, but Autumn, Kari and Katie agree that the end result is well worth it. On my end, it was a really rewarding experience working alongside Autumn and Kari, two very different women, each knowing what they want and what a business needs in order to succeed, Katie shares. And they happen to be humble, genuine, and kind at the same time.

Verdict: 5/5 Test 4: Release schedule Not that a power user cares anyway, part two There are three popular development methodologies that Linux distributions typically adhere to fixed schedule, fixed feature and rolling release. There's the fixed schedule, as followed by Fedora, where they try to push a new release out every six months, and Debian, which pushes out a new major release roughly every two years. These distros, more often than not, are drastically different from one release to the next. Switching from one release to the next thus involves a fresh install, or at least a major upgrade. This is more time-consuming and painstaking than a rolling release. Next, we have the feature release model, as followed by Slackware. Here, instead of announcing a date for the next release, the distro is released when it's good and ready. The project decides on a number of features it wishes to implement in the next release and works towards incorporating all the new features into the distro, releasing it only when all of these have been added.

In the past, this was time-consuming as we pulled data from multiple places with multiple data-science experts looking at it and validating it. Between the November and February Bug Bashes, we had a small team of engineers work on creating a Power BI dashboard that would show progress on Quests completed, feedback items entered, bugs triaged, and whether teams and individuals inside of WDG were participating more than others. We did this to form a healthy competition between the 78 Windows Engineering Directors and their teams. Overall, this was a huge time savings for the Bug Bash Crew and was used heavily by the engineering teams. We also monitor the progress of our Windows Insider activity during the Bug Bash with this dashboard. Do you know that the most completed Quest was the one for our new Night light feature? And the Apps and Games category received the most feedback items from Insiders? Outside of the United States, Germany was the most active country to provide feedback, followed closely by India in second place.

He used his Trump brand that Americans had come to associated with luxury, celebrity, and wealth courtesy of ‘The Apprentice’ and Trump Tower. Although Clinton was a powerful brand as well, hers was less appealing to the people. It was also not associated with entertainment and luxury. Trump was the brand that most Americans aspired to become. Extreme Brand Message He was aware that choosing a candidate to vote for was a timing consuming decision for voters; a decision that carries a high risk if it fails. Trump knew what Americans wanted; he leveraged on their trust of the brand he had created to assure his customers, (in this case, the voters,) of the value they were going to get. He was offering the value, which was the centerpiece of his effective marketing. Trump created and offeredvalue’ by promising positive change in exchange for the time and risk or the ‘price’ that Americans, his ‘consumers’ were to pay for trusting him.
