If These Three Animals Die They Will Have There Funeral Like Human Beings

How Elephant do funeral

The experience when you someone lost loved ones is demeaning and leaves people with many questions without answers. It takes ages to forget while some people leave unforgettable memories. This has been observed to be replicated by some animals who grieve like human beings. Below are the 3 animals that they always have there funeral like human beings;

1. Elephants
Elephants interact with their dead members in a special but varied way. Several researchers state that these animals are very
smart and emotional. Something special about them is that even non-family members show interest whenever there is death.
“What the family was doing was interesting, but what her non-relatives were doing is also important. You see their investigation of the body. You see calves walking past and smelling it. It is amazing to see that level of fascination. Her family was distressed that she wasn’t getting up. But the larger population also was interested in her death," a Colorado State University doctoral student, Shifra Goldenberg, told National Geographic when sharing a rare 2013 video recorded at Samburu National Reserve in northern Kenya.

2. Dolphins
Besides land animals, creatures of the sea also mourn their associates. Dolphins have been observed guarding there dead on various occasions. They also respect human life based on incidences where they help humans facing danger in the waters.
Giraffes, baboons, geladas, macaques, gorillas and lemurs have also been documented participating in death rituals.

3. Chimpanzees
Chimpanzee mothers behave like human mothers when their children die. A chimpanzee mother continues to care for her little one after death until s/he decays beyond recognition.
"The behaviours expressed by this female chimpanzee when she first endures physical separation from her dead infant provide valuable insight into… the possible ways in which chimpanzees gather information about the state of responsiveness of individuals around them (hence learning about ‘death’)," Katherine Cronin notes in the American Journal of Primatology.

Eleven Facts About iPhone You Don't Know, You Won't Believe NO 5

Facts about iPhone

Apple is one of the top smartphone producers in the world with track record of premium devices, design and features. The latest on their list is the amazing iPhone 11 pro.

But how much do you know iPhone and the company behind it - Apple Inc? This post reveals some of the unknown facts of iPhone devices and how they started. Maybe you are aware of some of these facts but I am sure there are people that this will come as a surprise to.

Even me, the first day I read about some of this facts, I was marveled and since then, I have been combing to get more information about Apple and other smartphone makers. Read below articles for the facts;

1. There Was Another iPhone Before The Apple iPhone
Before Apple launched iPhone, there was another company that had the name 'iPhone'. The company was actually known as the Cisco Systems.

In fact, they litigated Apple for naming its cell phone, ‘iPhone’. The first iPhone by Cisco was a VoIP phone, which allowed users to make Skype calls without using a computer. Ultimately, both the companies reached an agreement, and have kept their rights to the name.

2. The iPhone Was Conceptualized in the Late 1980s
Back in 1983, the developer of Apple computer, Hartmut Esslinger, idealized a landline phone that had features somewhat similar to today’s iPhone and iPad with a stylus-controlled interface. Though, the design was never developed into a real Phone, it is surprising that Apple had the idea behind the iPhone many years before it was launched. Just imagine how the iPhone landscape and custom iPhone app development would look if that old prototype in 1983 had been released.

3. U2’s Bono Is In Every iPhone
If you look closely to your iPhone, you’ll find that the artist’s icon in your Music app is originally a silhouette of Bono Vertigo – the U2 singer.

4. The App Store Was The First Place To Download An iOS App Legally
One of the most interesting facts about the Apple iPhone is that the App Store is the only place to download free or paid iOS apps legally.

5. Samsung Manufactures iPhone Processors
Now this might surprise you greatly. While it is true that Samsung and Apple are arch rivals in the smartphone field, they both are partnered with each other. Samsung has a contract with Apple to make computer chips for the iPhone.

6. 2.2 Billion iPhones Sold So Far
2.2 Billion iPhones have been sold worldwide

7. iPhone Was the Invention of the Year
Seeing the popularity of Apple iPhone, Time Magazine named it as the “Invention of the Year” in 2007. It was indeed a revolutionary development.

8. The iPhone Was Codenamed Purple
In the early days when the iPhone was being engineered, the nickname for the new cell phone was, “Purple”. Even the iPhone section at the Apple headquarters was called “Purple Dorm” by the developers.

9. 2 Million iPhone Apps
According to the reports, there are over 2 million iOS apps available in the Apple app store (as of June 2016). With this, the Apple app store is the second largest app store after Android, which has over 2.2 million apps.

10. iPhone 4 Names Antenna-gate
The new metal design of iPhone 4 caused extensive problems among the users when it was found that calls were getting disconnected on holding the phone a certain way. Because of its severity, it earned the name, Antenna-gate.

11. Steve Jobs Pranked with Starbucks
It was in 2007 when Apple was introduced for the first time by CEO Steve Jobs. He made a prank call to Starbucks and ordered over 4,000 lattes and cancelled it immediately. This was certainly a good thing for the barista who took that call.

Additionally, an iPhone manager will help you transfer all photos, music, contacts, and videos to PC in one click. These are some of the iPhone facts which I think you should know.

You Might Be Scammed By Using This New POS Scam Going on, See How They're Scamming With POS

How they scam with POS

Year 2020 began with some sorts of dramas including scamming innocent Nigerians of their hard-earned money. A Nigerian business analyst has done well to call the attention of the public to a new POS scam that many are blindly falling victim to.

Read it before you fall victim, because these days, most people pay with POS than with physical cash even in stores and supermarkets.

“So there’s a POS scam going on with some vendors. You finish your purchase and present your ATM card for payment. Once it shows APPROVED, they’ll remove your card without letting it print out a receipt, hence, the POS will revert to DECLINED. If you complain, they’ll tell you to contact your bank, that they’ll reverse the payment. Because that’s the general expectation, anyone nearby (even other customers) will join them in saying the same thing.”

“Once you fall for that scam and pay again, your money is gone. The bank/merchant will reverse the money, but not to your account. It goes to the vendor’s account. You’ll just waste your time going back and forth between your bank and the vendor. This has happened to me before.

But according to my bank, the merchant refused to refund me because they claim to have already reversed the money. Since the reversal can’t be traced to my account, my bank is following up to find a solution. So, to recap, if your transaction shows DECLINED and debits you, your money will be reversed to your account. If it 1st shows ‘Approved’ then ‘Declined’, the money will be reversed to the vendor’s account.”

“You won’t get your money back without a fight. Be guided. As @oderathekid advised, when you’re done putting your pin, hold the POS until it shows you approved and prints the first receipt. When you put your pin and they immediately ask you to give them the POS, don’t listen to them. Protect your money.”

Please be guided, don’t fall victim to this POS scam this year.

Ten Amazing Facts About Earth You’ve Never Heard Before, Could No 7 Really Happen

If you already know that Mount Everest is the highest mountain on Earth, our planet is basically packed with freshwater and you think that's the only mind blowing thing about earth – you’re about to get the biggest shock of your life. Scientific discoveries are made every day, but not all of them get the necessary amount of exposure. We humans still live in the dark when it comes to facts about planet Earth because it’s almost impossible to get up to speed with the ever-changing facts that seem to be solid one moment and then change completely the other. For those of you who’d like to get their facts straight, we’ve gathered 10 mind-bending discoveries you’ve probably never heard before about earth. Below are some of the amazing facts about earth;

1. Earth’s Atmosphere
Did you know that the atmosphere of Earth has borders? It appears that at the altitude of 100 km above the sea level, there lies an internationally accepted line that’s called The Kármán line. Although Earth’s atmosphere stretches much further out into space, this line has been recognized by The World Air Sports Federation as the border separating our planet’s atmosphere and outer space.

2. The Tallest Mountain in the World
Everest has been generally considered the tallest mountain on Earth, but it is not quite true. It appears that Mauna Kea, a huge dormant volcano on Hawaii, is much taller if we take into consideration the part of the mountain that lies beneath sea level. If we measure Mount Kea from the base to the peak, we’ll get a height of 10,203 meters, while Mount Everest is ‘only’ 8, 848 meters high.

tallest mountain on earth

3. Earth’s Freshwater
We’ve grown used to believing that Earth is basically made of water. But is that water drinkable? It appears that oceans and seas c
omprise 97% of Earth’s water resources, which is salty water we cannot drink. This leaves us with only 3% of freshwater which can be mostly found in glaciers (70%) and Lake Baikal (20%).

4. The Driest Place on Earth
It’s a common belief that deserts are the driest places on Earth, one Atacama Desert in particular. Located in Chile, this desert hasn’t seen a drop of rain for thousands of years. Nevertheless, there’s a place that hasn’t seen rain for eons! The desolate lands of McMurdo Dry Valleys in Antarctica have been dry for 2 million years and will probably stay that way for twice as long. The winds there are especially ferocious and can reach speeds of 320 km/h.

5. The Moon and Earth Were One Planet
Scientists are still debating the origin of the Moon, but most of them agree that it’s most likely that it formed after Earth collided with a Mars-sized protoplanet billions of years ago. Swedish scientists believe that 4,533 billion years ago Earth was hit by an ancient planet called Theia that had an orbit similar to Earth’s. As the planets grew bigger, Theia’s orbit became unstable and the planet hit Earth. The debris left by the collision later formed the Moon we know today.

6. The Oldest Temple in the World
Not many people heard the name Göbekli Tepe, which is considered to be the oldest temple in the world. Archaeologists believe this megalithic temple made with huge stone pillars arranged in intricate circles was created by ancient hunter-gatherers, but evidence suggests that a far more advanced society created this monumental structure in Southern Turkey 12,000 years ago. This incredible temple is 7,000 years older than Pyramids and at least 6,500 years older than Stonehenge. Yet no carving tools were found on the site!

7. Continents Will Reunite in 250 Million Years
Scientists believe that around 330 million years ago all continents existed as one Pangea, which later split into Laurasia and Gondwana. As time went by, these two continents also split apart and formed the seven continents we live on today. Nevertheless, Earth’s continents are always on the move, and in some 250 million years we’ll all be living on the new supercontinent called Pangea Ultima. The world’s landmass will clamp into one, with a huge inland sea in the very heart of it – all that will be left of the once powerful Atlantic Ocean.

8. The First Mass Extinction Was Caused By a Single-celled Organism
It seems that Massachusetts Institute of Technology has finally solved one of the biggest ancient mysteries of Earth – what wiped out 90% of all species on Earth about 252 million years ago? It was not the only mass extinction in the history of Earth, but it’s been hard to pinpoint the culprit for this one. Scientists found evidence that it was not the volcanoes, coal fires, or asteroids that wiped out most of Earth’s life forms, but a new form of methane-producing microbes. Methanosarcina suddenly bloomed in Earth’s oceans, spewing methane into atmosphere and changing the climate of the whole planet.

9. Most of Earth Always Lies in the Dark
Here’s a fun thought to consider: as we know, 71% of our planet’s surface is covered by the World Ocean. Sunlight doesn’t go very deep into the water, in fact, it only goes as far as 200 meters! This means that the rest of the water lies in the dark that hasn’t been penetrated by rays of light for millennia. This also means that most of our planet always lies in the dark, whether it is ‘day’ or ‘night’ outside!

10. A New Garbage Continent
We all know that tons of garbage are dumped into seas and oceans, but what happens with it next? Nowadays there exist garbage patches (also known as vortices) that are basically patches of debris that gets into water from ships and their lost cargo. This garbage is moved all over the place by oceanic currents until it forms into garbage patches. The biggest garbage vortex we know of today is the Great Pacific Garbage Patch. Scientists speculate that one day all the trash that mankind pours into seas and oceans will come together to form a whole new island or even a continent.

Top Five World’s Highest-Paid Football Players of The Year, Who Is Your Best Player

Football is a sport that involve, to varying degrees, kicking a ball to score a goal. Unqualified, the word football normally means the form of football that is the most popular where the word is used. Sports commonly called football include association football (known as soccer in some countries); gridiron football (specifically American football or Canadian football); Australian rules football; rugby football (either rugby league or rugby union); and Gaelic football. These various forms of football are known as football codes.

Interest in football brings together millions of people from all around the world. For many of them tournaments are even far more exciting than watching movies: in football you know that “actors” are real people in real circumstances, the scenes have never been rehearsed before and no person in the whole world can know for sure how it all is gonna end up. Obviously you might be curious who the brightest stars of this industry are and how much they earn for what they do. Every year Forbes makes a rating of top highest earning football players in the world. Recent years brought some interesting changes to the list. Below are the list of most paid footballers;

1. Cristiano Ronaldo
Earlier the list was dominated by David Beckham, who retired in May 2013. In the last years of his career, he made more money from product endorsement than by playing fooball. Now that Beckham is out of the game, the first place belongs to Cristiano Ronaldo. Portuguese football star currently playing for Juventus earned $52 million in salary and $28 million from commercial activity. His five-year contract with Real Madrid worth of $206 million has helped him a lot in moving up the list. Not only he is the highest paid football player, but he also holds the title of the most popular athlete in the world.

2. Lionel Messi
The second place of the chart belongs to Lionel Messi. His last year income approached $61.7 million, two thirds of which was his salary with the rest coming from advertising. Messi, the pride of Argentina, currently playing for FC Barcelona, gained his popularity at a very early age. Within the next couple of years he is expected to make even more money than Christiano Ronaldo.

3. Zlatan Ibrahimovic
The third place, with the annual revenue $20 millions less than that of Messi, is held by the Swedish football player Zlatan Ibrahimovic. He plays for the French club Paris Saint-Germain. Unlike many others, he earned only 4 milliion endorsing the products, so probably if he gets that part going he will be able to move up even higher in the rating.

4. Gareth Bale
Another star from Real Madrid – Welsh player Gareth Bale ranks number 4 on the list of the highest paid football players of the world. He is just $4 millions behind compared to Ibragimovic’s income. However, he earns 2.5 times more through endorsement than his Swedish colleague.

5. Radamel Falcao
Radamel Falcao, who has recently entered the Manchester United club, holds the last position on the top-five list. Colombian football star earned $35 million last year. Due to the injury he was not able to participate in World Cup 2014, but he still managed to make $32 million.

As we can see, Ronaldo has steadily fixed his top spot on the list with the difference of almost $50 million compared to the fifth place, however next year can bring a lot of changes to the rating. No wonder players who provide us with the most spectacular moments get rewarded well – the amounts of money football stars earn are enormous.

Top Seven Most Beautiful Mosques In The World, They Are So Beautiful

Mosque is a place of worship for Muslims. Any act of worship that follows the Islamic rules of prayer can be said to create a mosque, whether or not it takes place in a special building. Informal and open-air places of worship are called musalla, while mosques used for communal prayer on Fridays are known as jāmiʿ. Mosque buildings typically contain an ornamental niche (mihrab) set into the wall that indicates the direction of Mecca (qiblah), ablution facilities and minarets from which calls to prayer are issued.

However, there are lots of mosques from all around the world but in this article we will be talking on the top seven most beautiful mosques. Here they are below;

1. The Holy Mosque/al-Haram Mosque, Mecca

This is the largest and probably most recognizable mosque on Earth. It is also the holiest site in Islam. The Holy Mosque can accommodate up to two million people during Hajj. That’s awesome, considering a regular football stadium can fit maybe a hundred thousand? It’s absolutely massive.

most beautiful mosque

2. Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque, Abu Dhabi

Unlike the Holy Mosque, this one can only fit about 40,000 people, but that’s still a ton. Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque also looks much better, and, apparently, it has the world’s largest carpet.

3. Dome of the Rock Mosque, Jerusalem

Dome of the Rock is located in Old Jerusalem in a place the locals call the Temple Mount. The legend says that under the Dome lies the spot from where prophet Muhammed ascended to heaven.

4. Hassan II Mosque/Grande Mosquée Hassan II, Casablanca

Wanna know why this mosque is so vertical? There’s a powerful laser at the top, that points across the sea towards Mecca. Maybe if the Earth was flat it would work, but sadly she’s got curves, and that laser probably misses the spot. Still, the building looks amazing!

5. Sultan Ahmed Mosque/The Blue Mosque, Istanbul

Better known in the world as the “Blue Mosque”, got its name from the 20-something thousands of blue ceramic tiles covering the insides of the walls. Looks cool!

6. Qolsharif Mosque, Russia

Top Four Most Stunning Buildings In The World That Get People Talking

In this article you will get to know about some weird buildings that will surprise you and wonder how they build it due to there structure and design. Below are to top four most stunning building in the world;

1. The Kunsthaus - Graz, Austria
The Graz Art Museum, designed by Peter Cook and Colin Fournier in 2003, is a must see for those who can really understand the latest tendencies in contemporary art. The huge “nozzles” sticking out from the roof are in fact solar panels which enable the building to generate its own energy and make it environment-friendly.

Thanks to the weird architecture and unique computerized lightning system which illuminates the building from beneath the transparent acrylic panels of the roof , the Museum reminds some supernatural creature and is sometimes even called a ‘friendly alien’. Being one of the world’s greatest exhibition venues, this highly functional and technical building meets all the requirements the most demanding modern art owners could only think of.

2. The Haines Shoe House - Hallam, Pennsylvania
The Haines Shoe House, designed by Mahlon Haines in 1948, is an example of the dramatic roadside advertising which was quite popular in the early 20th century. Mahlon Haines was a shoe salesman and the House is a copy of his best selling model – high topped work shoe. Haines never sold footwear from the Shoe, neither did he live there himself. Instead he invited people to celebrate anniversaries or sometimes even live there for a couple of days.

The advertising power of the House proved to be so strong that Haines never demanded any pay for living in it as the amount of shoes bought by the amazed visitors was tremendous and covered all the construction expenses. The Shoe House is still open to the public, so if you want to feel like a dwarf stuck in a huge cosy boot you should remember the address.

3. The Crooked House - Sopot, Poland
The Crooked House, designed by architects Szotynscy and Zaleski in 2004, is now home to the shopping center and definitely one of the most popular tourist attractions of Poland. Once you visit the place, a picture of you in front of the Crooked House is a must have, otherwise what’s the reason coming here?

When you look at the building you get really puzzled at first: it is hard to understand whether something happened to your eyes so that everything gets blurred, or you suddenly find yourself inside some fairy-tale where houses can be of any forms possible. The blue and green shingles of the roof make the building look like some fantastic fdragon, especially at night, when everything is illuminated. Though the building is asbsolutely astounding from the outside, there is not really much to see inside: a couple of shops and a coffee place may seem quite disappointing after all.

4. 30 St Mary Axe - London, UK
30 St Mary Axe, the skyscraper in the financial district of London, is more widely known as The Gherkin due to its unusual form. The building was erected in 2003 on the site of the former Baltic Exchange which had been almost completely destroyed by the bomb explosion 10 years earlier.

Though it has become one of the symbols of modern London and is a must see for every tourist alongside with Buckingham Palce and Trafalgar Square, it is not open to the public, so unless you have some business inside the building you can enjoy its beauty and grandeur only from a certain distance. Andf if you want to make some really good pictures in front of The Gherkin, make sure you come here on Sunday, otherwise you will meet thousands of office workers here who will make it quite difficult to enjoy the beauty of the landscape.

Top Ten Most Peaceful Countries You Can Travel To In The World Right Now, Wow! United States Is Still On The List

Most Peaceful Countries In the world

Peace is a rare thing these days. If you open up whichever news website or news app you prefer, all you will see is war. Thankfully, back in 2006, a Global Peace Index was invented to actually measure how peaceful a country is. You shouldn't be expecting America on this list due to US - Iran ongoing saga. Anyway, if you want to make a safe trip this period, Below are the top 10 most peaceful countries in the world;

1. Belgium

How can a country that perfected the art of brewing beer be anything but peaceful? It’s a small but somewhat overly complex country, sharing equal amounts of modern cityscapes and almost medieval historic parts.

2. Sweden

There’s not much certainty in life, but you can be very sure that if we’re looking at countries that are doing things right, Sweden will be quite high on the list. This is no exception.

3. Canada

The older, more intelligent brother of the United States. This country has amazing nature and free healthcare. Sounds like a truly peaceful place!

4. Finland

I mean, it’s another Scandinavian country. You can be pretty sure most of them will be in this list. All we see in the news is how amazing Scandinavia is and how happy all their people are. Finland is no different.

5. Japan

The most Western of Asian countries, Japan has really become a fascinating country. They have a high economy, a low crime rate and amazingly high happiness ratings. And it probably has more sushi than anyone can eat.

6. Switzerland

Money can’t buy happiness, but money can apparently buy peace. Their neutrality has given them quite a foothold in Europe and the fact that they welcome everyone’s big stacks of money probably helps too.

7. Austria

Being a country in the center of Europe isn’t always easy, especially if your country got a bit of a name because some dictator may or may not have been born there, but Austria seems to do just fine when it comes to being peaceful these days.

8. New Zealand

There’s a reason why they filmed the Shire from “The Lord of the Rings” there. It just looks peaceful, it’s no wonder people there are so calm and friendly.

9. Denmark

In true Scandinavian fashion, Denmark ranks extremely high on this list. Let’s all be honest: they’re probably so high on this list because whoever wants to move troops to Denmark has to go through Germany. Last time they tried to do that, it took half the world to make it happen.

10. Iceland

In all fairness, Iceland cheated on this list. Who’d want to attack a floating puddle of ice in the deep north of Europe? Exactly, no one. It’s a beautiful country though!

Wait! are you really expecting America on the list? lol! No, you shouldn't, cause America is one of the most dangerous countries to live in the world right now! Do you know why? Drop your comments below.

Seven Best Exercises That Help In Growing Of Chest Muscle In Men and Women

chest exercise

This article is all about some exercises you can do that will help in growing of chest muscle.

Ever heard the phrase “variety is the spice of life”? It goes without saying that you can plateau very quickly if you just stick to the boring traditional movements. Even while doing the body weight version, you must incorporate multiple variations. After all, the goal is to continually challenge yourself. But, I’m talking about real gains, so can body weight variations really do the job? Do I have to lift? You will get the answers to your questions in this article. Below are the seven best exercise you can do to help in growing chest muscle;

1. The Dumbbell Squeeze-Press

This particular exercise involves a range of motion that will mount extreme pressure on your pectorals. And you know that such pressure is a key necessity for muscle growth. Your chest will remain activated and engaged all through the movement.

2. The Batwing Fly

Apart from strengthening the chest muscles, the batwing fly involves a range of motion that will cause damage to, and lead to serious growth and expansion of, the chest muscles. It is performed with dumbbells in each hand, and the back flat on an incline bench.

3. The Dumbbell Squeeze Push-up

This is a reverse motion of the squeeze-press, only this time you’re using your body-weight. However, instead of having your palms flat on the ground, you should wrap them around dumbbells. Dumbbells are joined together, and as you lower down, your chest should touch them. Then, pause and squeeze for a bit, before coming back up.

4. Weighted Push-ups

Push-ups are, and will always remain the chest classic. Imagine how much more growth will be achieved by adding weights to the movement. Weights can be added flexibly, either you place an iron plate, or sandbag on top of your back, or you wear a weighted vest.

5. The Chest Fly

This can be done on a bench, but using cables will give you the most experience. Because, it creates a steady tension and recruits multiple chest muscles at once. The range of motion provided by the chest fly will fire up your pecs.

6. The Neck Barbell Bench Press

You shouldn’t do this unsupervised, and it helps if you’re using a spotter, or assisted bench press machine for safety. This exercise requires that you hold the barbell above your neck, and then press down to target those shoulders and upper chest muscles.

7. The Plyometric Push-up

With this range of motion, your heart rate is way up, so your chest muscles are working double time. It’s just like a regular push-up, except that you’re driving up with enhanced force (almost like jumping with your arms), and then, adding a small clap in between.

You Must Never Put These Foods Inside Refrigerator If You still Need It,Take Note Of No 3 and 8

foods you mustn't put in fridge

The refrigerator is without a doubt, the first place you would think of storing food items, especially perishable food items. And of course, it’s a great way to store food, lock the freshness in, and extend the life of most foods. But, aren’t you getting it wrong sometimes? Shouldn’t some of those foods be stored differently than your first modern-day refrigerator instinct? Aren’t they foods that don’t belong in your fridge?

Well, in this article you will get to know some food you are not suppose to be putting in fridge. below are some food you should never put inside fridge;

1. Hard Cheese

Hard cheeses usually undergo about 6 months of curing, and when this is done, it’s stable enough to be stored anywhere else but the fridge. Storing hard cheeses in the fridge hardens it more, so that it’s hard like rock.

2. Herbs

Just because herbs are fresh and perishable, doesn’t mean they should automatically be put in the refrigerator for storage. By doing that, you’ll get what you were trying to avert a lot sooner than expected.

3. Bread

Refrigerating bread actually causes it to age faster, become stale, and spoil. Not to mention, it dries it out. If you must choose refrigeration for your bread, the freezer is your best bet. You can toast some and it’s fresh as new.

4. Garlic

Garlics are best stored in ventilated places. Congested places and the refrigerator are wrong places to store garlic. Doing this will not only increase the acidity and mold, but it’s potentially injurious to your health.

5. Onion

Similar to garlic, onion bulbs don’t do well with refrigeration. Onions rot easily and a lot quicker with moisture. So, even while choosing dry places to store them, be mindful that you don’t pair them with potatoes in the pantry.

6. Potatoes

If you want your fries crispy and delicious, leave them lying in the pantry until your ready. The ideal temperature for your potatoes is room temperature - nothing too extreme. What the refrigerator does to your potatoes is; it converts all the delicious start to slimy sugar.

7. Honey

Fun fact: honey is actually a forever food - never going bad. You’ll love your honey a whole lot more if it were stored in the pantry, and away from temperatures that are too extreme. The refrigerator causes honey to crystalize, and it becomes almost inedible.

8. Eggs

Many people will disagree with this, since eggs are also kept in the refrigerator at the grocery store. As a regular practice, if your eggs were selected from the refrigerator, that’s how you should store them. However, fresh eggs are best left in the pantry.

9. Tomatoes

Refrigeration is the worst decision when choosing how to store your tomatoes (unless they’re pureed). Their texture, flavor, and freshness will be lost if stored in the refrigerator. Besides, they ripen faster outside the fridge.

10. Coffee

If you want your coffee to retain its aroma and taste, don’t put it in the refrigerator. The humidity of the refrigerator is not ideal for coffee and coffee beans. A freezer could be an option, but only in exceptional cases.

Here Is What Happens When You Use Your Towel More Than 5 Times Without Washing

Defects of dirty towel

I know most of us hate laundry but according to an article in Time magazine, towels should be washed every two days. I know, you bought the dark ones so stains and dirt won’t show up quite so easily; I did the same. This trick was supposed to make our lives easier, right? You do not simply use a towel one time. That is blasphemy.

The thing is, those towels are crawling with bacteria. The study conducted by Charles Gerba, a microbiologist at the University of Arizona, found coliform (bacteria found in human feces) in 90% of bathroom towels and E. coli in 14% of bathroom towels. These things are nasty whether we can actually see the evidence or not. And we can all confirm sharing towels with our kids elevates the disgusting factor. To them, it’s not a piece of cloth for wiping off their freshly scrubbed body parts but are also booger catchers, work well for cleaning up pee off the floor, and are a good place to store scabs and poop specs.

Soft towels are supposed to feel like hugs and unicorn kisses. Those hugs are laced with bacteria that like to chill in the loo. After all, bathrooms provide the perfect environment for that shit with their warm, damp climates. The good news is that even though your towels are crawling with germs, it probably won’t physically harm you. Even if we come into contact with the bacteria, we will be fine. Our bodies are adapted to being able to live in this environment with all of these microbes around.

While we may not get sick, we could risk infection if any bacteria gets into an open cut or wound. So when you cut your leg shaving in the shower, maybe don’t dry that area off unless you know you towels are free of poop particles.

The best way to protect yourself is to wash kitchen and bathroom towels often. People should wash any bathroom towels after about two days of use, particularly if you have young children in the house. And not just any rinse will do. Bacteria can survive regular detergent, so use hot water and a product with activated oxygen bleach to thoroughly clean towels. You may be able to go slightly longer before washing if you’re careful about keeping towels very dry.

As long as it’s drying completely between use, there’s almost no chance of passing bacteria from one person to another. Still, you’ll want to wash them at least once a week. And if they start to smell, you know you’ve let them go too long. The bottom line is that if you stay on top of cleaning both your hands and your towels regularly, experts say it’s very unlikely they’ll make you sick!
