We have been drinking our cold beverages with straws. Water, mineral water, any type of soda including coke, cold coffee, some cocktails so on so forth.
But we don’t drink beer with it.
But the history of straw begins with beer.
Around 3.000 BCE, Sumerians invented straw to drink their beers. during the fermentation process of beer, solid byproducts were sinking to the bottom of the cup, and they used straws not to consume them. The straw material was a gold tube inlaid with the precious blue stone.

I have never been a music oriented person, but I’ve always listened to it. Before university, I was listening via old style cassettes, then promoted to CD’s. Technology was so fast, I then moved to mp3-players, the ones like ice-cream sticks. Apple had iPod’s but I never had any of them. As soon as I got my first iPhone, I started using iTunes music, but it was very expensive. The app was expecting you to buy single songs at €0.99 or whole albums at €9.99.
Then at some point around 2013, I bought a Samsung cell phone, which also had…
After watching the Fringe series second time, I woke up with a huge question: Should a scientist test her experiments on her OWN children or on OTHERS’ one? Instead of forgetting the question, I decided to work on it about how different approaches exist in the real world.
I first tried to understand the definitions. So first checked the Wikipedia for it:

So we need to have a hypothesis first, like drinking 2…
We all live in hard times. We all need to have breaks between two meetings, two lectures, two very condensed tasks.
Why do we need a break? To clarify our minds, to think a little about our own presence, to realize where we are, what we are doing, how we feel ourselves. This is not a sleeping on the job. This is to clear our wellbeing from the infinite number of tasks to an empty spread of notebook.
However, we do not set our schedules on our own, other people fulfill whenever they see any empty slot. …
You may know that when you share or send any photo images from your iPhone’s, it may not be accessible by various programs and especially by the web forms. When you check the reason, the format of iPhone photos are HEIC, instead of what we already know: JPEG, PNG, etc.

Benjamin Moffitt’in kaleme aldığı Popülizmin Küresel Yükselişi, basit bir eleştiri olmanın çok ötesinde, popülizm tanımını felsefi bir yaklaşımla ele alıyor. 1860'lardan günüme dek tarihi boyutunu akademik bir dille okuduğumuz popülizmin güncelde hangi sorunlara yanıt aradığını ve hangi sorunlara yol açtığını anlatan Moffitt, kitabında, özellikle siyasi üslup konusuna hatırı sayılır bir alan ayırıyor.
Popülizm terimini sadece bağlamsal anlamda okumuyoruz kitapta. Liderlik, medya, halk, kriz ve demokrasi çerçevesinde tartışmalara da yer veriyor. Liderlerin, özellikle de siyasi liderlerin neden ve nasıl popülizme pay verdiği, medyanın rolü ile birlikte irdelendiğinde günümüz haberlerini okumak farklı bir boyuta kavuşuyor. Hemen her bireyi birinci derece ilgilendiren kriz…
Around two years ago, I was discussing alternative business ideas with my partner. We were discussing many ideas each and every night, from founding a creative agency to opening a niche market, we discussed pro’s and con’s of many ideas. Then when morning comes out, we were realizing the big challenges we would be facing if we continue those ideas. They were sometimes finance based, sometimes location based and sometimes know-how based.
Then at some time, we were talking about how we manage our individual financial balance. I was doing that via MS Excel tool. …
I always loved reading printed magazines. Even when I was a ten year old child, I was saving money to buy magazines, to read them and to collect. The subjects of the magazines varied by time: Youth magazines, science magazines, political ones, men papers, sports (and especially body building0 collections, business life. Anything was great to me, since I have always loved to read anything.
For last six or seven years, I discovered a non-classified magazine called Monocle, and it became one of my favorite leisures. …
