Where the world’s biggest coffee drinkers live

1 Comment
Not all coffee drinkers are made equal. By Roberto A. Ferdman  January 15, 2014
America might be famous for running on coffee, but it doesn’t run on much. Not compared to a handful of other countries, anyway. When it comes to actual coffee consumption per person, the US doesn’t even crack the top 15.
For much of Europe, and especially Scandinavia, the story is quite different. In a review in 2010 about Stieg Larsson’s hit Swedish trilogy, the New York Times wrote incredulously about how the books’ scenes seemed to always revolve around endless servings of coffee:
…everyone works fervidly into the night and swills tons of coffee; hardly a page goes by without someone “switching on the coffee machine,” ordering “coffee and a sandwich” or responding affirmatively to the offer “Coffee?”
But as it turns out—and as the Times soon thereafter learned—the coffee obsession has much less to do with Larsson than it does with Sweden. Or really, with all of Scandinavia, the Benelux countries, and bits of Eastern Europe. The Netherlands’ per-capita consumption of 2.4 cups a day is almost the same as those of the US, UK, Spain, and France combined.

Why You Should Learn to Run a Server Before You Learn to Code

1 Comment


To the disappointment of everyone who wants to learn to code so they can get rich or powerful, developer Dave Winer tells us that's probably not going to happen. He lists good reasons why you might want to learn to code, but recommends you learn to run a server first.

Learning to code is good if you have a calling, if you feel it's what you must do to express yourself. If you have ideas that you can implement in code that no one else is doing. Or if you just love the puzzles that programming is constantly presenting you with. You have to have a certain amount of self-hatred to love programming, between, because it's a grind. And to do it well you have to have a lot of all of these things.
You might think that by learning to code you get to be the Man Behind the Curtain, the all-powerful person who makes the digital world work. But that's not what coding is about. If you want power, and I've said this many times — rather than learn to code — first learn to run a server. That's real power. And it's far easier than programming.

Plus, running a server, Winer says is a gateway into programming. 
This advice echoes a previous perspective about learning to work with technology 
(only it's less dismissive of the benefits of learning to code).

Learning to code will not make you rich

Is this the end of christianity ?

Be The First To Comment

Christianity today is the most widespread religion of the world. Want to know how this
religion got such a popularity ? Well I am not talking about Jesus Christ. There are
lots of unanswered questions, and dozens of things still remaining to be proved, before
his existence can be proved, if you leave the blind faith apart, few have failed to bear
the testimony. The christianity religion got a huge support from very powerfull roman empire.
It assisted and involved itself in many activities such as rewriting of the bible, setting up
of religious head in Vetican city, and also initiating the crusades(religious war). The process
was further proceeded by the mighty british empire. They conquered, enslaved and colonised the
world , and they are the reason why we have churches and missionaries all around the globe.
Had they not been supported by these two, I personally doubt that christianity would had spread
as it has today. What do you think. I mean look at the other religions, Islam for instance. What
do you think ? Okkk...!

What you actually need to do is dig in deep down history, get some names, follow the trail,
study the cultures and compare them carefully with the minute details provided in the bible, and
you will come up with hundreds of mistakes. Study the history of Vetican city and Pope, look at the
series of events if you wish to know their intentions. Dig further deep in history and you will come
up with almost fifteen names whose biography is very much similar to that of Jesus Christ. "Horus" is
one among them who has biography 100 percent similar to that of Jesus Christ. Looks like someone has
created a religious figure for the world to worship.

"David Icke".

Hold onn my dear readers before you think that there is no God in the Universe. If a blind is not able
to see red color then does that denies the existence of red color ? No ! We have no extra senses to 
actually feel God, and very similarly that does not denies the exixtence of God. So what does that mean ?
Do Jesus Christ exists ? Search and thou shalt find...!

Note - Searching the history might take some unwilling effort, so I advise you all to go to "David Icke".
       Apart from getting the information about some extremely wierd stuffs going around the world, you
       will very closely come to know about Christainity. The name of book - "Biggest secrets of the world"

Warning - If you are afraid of change, then never read this book.

It's true that you can't do everything, but sometimes, you need some extra inspiration to put yourself out there and do the things that you really want to do.
