The production of glassware by coiling strands of molten glass is a throwback to the earliest methods of glass-making
Glass would be the hardest material to use in the 3D printing process because it takes longer to cool down. But this method can only make one type of product. Still very interesting indeed.
“@b50: India has 125cr people. Only 2.2cr have a demat account, 3.3cr have equity mutual fund folio. #Sensex crash does NOT matter.”
“@b50: And finally, in terms of value, FIIs hold 22-23% of the market, vs 9-10% by local institutions. #Sensex crash does not matter.”

We were protected because Equity market is not considered a safe investment in India. So not many are invested in it. And ironically this latest bust will only make that belief stronger.

Quite surprised none of the big companies were in the 200. Videocon is only slowly turing around from its heyday. The other companies on the list need good global markets, so really surprised to see them in the green.

The rooms next to the waterfall would be so relaxing, but how safe would this be from floods etc. I guess a dam is a wasted space, this is a unique way to use it.

It’s important to note that the S-Pen can go in backwards with zero force. The pen is the same shape for its entire length, making backward insertion just as easy as forward insertion. It’s something that a person could conceivably do if they weren’t paying attention, and it’s definitely something a small child would do.

I am always skeptical of such design flaws. This looks like the same thing they said about iPhone 6 bending issues. Its not like people will actually bend their phones.
Having said that i will say i am more likely to put the stylus backward than accidentally bend my phone.
The creative habits of Demetri Martin
WHERE I GET IDEAS AND WHERE I WORK THEM OUT
I like to go for walks, ideally in places where I can daydream without getting hit by a car or anything like that. I do my more stationary work at home—on a treadmill desk. It gives me the experience of walking without having to turn around and come back. It feels productive and futile at the same time, much like my career.

This works both ways you get the excercise and the free time to think. Don’t forget to take few walks outside too.
A vegetarian diet is not just low on proteins, it may lack other nutrients too. Here’s how you can change that
Iron is required to make haemoglobin and its deficiency may lead to anaemia. Plus, our immune system is dependent on it for smooth functioning.
Get enough: Since most good sources of iron are non-vegetarian—chicken, eggs, sardines—it is hard for vegetarians to get adequate iron. The issue is compounded by the fact that the body does not absorb iron from plant foods as well as it does from meats. To get iron from plants, you need to consume a larger amount of vegetarian products. Sprouts, beans, seeds (sesame, sunflower and pumpkin), mushrooms, iron-fortified cereals and nuts (cashews, almonds, walnuts) are good sources.
To improve iron absorption, consume enough vitamin C alongside. Ideally, pair them together: Add lime juice to pomegranate juice, add orange along with seeds and nuts to your salad. Have more broccoli and potatoes (they contain both vitamin C and iron), suggests Tandon.

Nothing excited me from Nintendo’s press event.
I think Playstation won this years E3.
I miss those days of Real Madrid, when there were stars like Raul, Iker, who were amazing but relatively unknown outside Spain.
Real madrid was more about team performance than Individual players.
When a player came in to the team he was there for few years and some times decades.
Now its like a bus stop every season so many players come in and so many leave.
I want the old madrid back. After this years horrendous season we have a chance to rebuild. Here is my team for next season.
GK Iker Casillas
DF Raphaël Varane
DF Dani Carvajal
DF Sergio Ramos
MF Luka Modrić
MF Toni Kroos
MF Martin Ødegaard
FW Karim Benzema
The list is what my current squad would be. Even is they don’t succeed, one thing is for sure they will definitely play as a team.
