Need to Schedule a Haircut? You Can Do This on Google

There’s no question that Google (the search site, not the company!) has made life a lot easier for many people. Finding a cake recipe or finding the right route to a particular location with only browser features are already common practice for many people, but the service lead will increase with a newly available option.

From now on, Google service users will have the opportunity to search for hairdressing salons and spa centers to schedule a break or session. If you wish, you can also use the Reserve with Google site to access this amenity.

“This feature is made possible through partnerships with the top scheduling providers you might already use, including Genbook, SalonRunner, Rosy, Yocale, and WellnessLiving. And soon we’ll be adding many more, including Booksy, Envision, MyTime, Schedulicity, Setmore, Shore, SimpleSpa, SuperSalon and TimeTrade,” <a href="https

ClassyStreet.com attempts is to bring these unsung heroes to the real world limelight so that the world not only praises their work but in reality these people get a better life also.

Mr. Debansh Das Sharma, Founder of Innovedge Solutions Pvt.ltd that owns classystreet.com in an interview with greatcompanies.in says that the company took such an initiative to provide a platform for the skillful handicraft workers, who lacked appreciation from the society.

Mr. Sharma provided some more insights on startup culture, success mantra and much more.

Interviewer: Please tell me something about the company.

Mr. Debansh: It is an online platform for traditional handlooms and handicraft. It is a platform to showcase the work of award winning and talented designers along with their profile and portfolio.

Interviewer: How did you come up with such an idea?

Mr. Debansh: We realized that it is important to bridge the gap between the people who don’t have the knowledge about such intriguing things and the designers who don’t have any platform to showcase their work and talent. These upcoming designers had to face the adversities of dishonest middlemen, and people who copied their designs. Many people started taking advantages of the skilled. Since then we wanted to take up the initiative of working with them directly. Also, we as customers didn’t trust the authenticity and genuinity of these items. So we developed a reliable platform to order handcrafted and hand loomed products.

Interviewer: What were the challenges you faced and what did you learn from them?

Mr. Debansh: Being a startup, one has to always face challenges. But we have always been courageous and dedicated to our goals. We believe in working with the attitude of giving our best to achieve the desired goal whatever comes our way. The problems would always exist, but the right decision and perseverance would take you forward.

Interviewer: What are the three things important for a successful business?

Mr. Debansh: A much-focused goal, a right plan and execution, and the attitude to overcome the challenges are the three things, I believe, are important for any business.

Interviewer: What would you advice budding entrepreneurs who are willing to start up their own business or facing challenges?

Mr. Debansh: One should always look for the best idea and something exclusive so that no one else can imitate or take the credit of coming up with the same idea. An entrepreneur should never copy while performing their daily functions or even just start a business because it is trending or it looks attractive.

They should rather work hard for something about which they are passionate and do that in a the systematic manner to get the best results.

Interviewer: What are some of your habits which make you a successful entrepreneur?

Mr. Debansh: I am a polite person, always ready to take up challenges. I think that is important for sustainability. Also, I always promote optimism. One should never think that they won’t be able to do something or achieve a goal; they should always give it a try.

I have also been much focused on only promoting handloom and handicrafts.

Interviewer: How does entrepreneurship change a person?

Mr. Debansh: Entrepreneurship comes with responsibilities and being responsible affects one’s persona. After becoming a businessman, they always forget about their circle and their own self, which is a very wrong habit. Someone who has the capacity to balance their personal life and the spirituality of business has more probability to become a successful businessman. One needs to be balanced and developed as an individual to reach heights. Being calm also comes with the essence of entrepreneurship.

Initially, I was not able to take up the responsibility which came along with the running of a business. But, eventually, I took certain steps to overcome my personal shortcomings and it is now also reflected on me as a human being.

Fast, Furious And Flying: The World’s Fastest Drone Passes 280 km/h

The fight for being the fastest is not reserved for traditional means: if you depend on the Drone Racing League, which organizes racing competitions between drones, the dispute will also be among the small flying robots.

The weapon chosen by the DRL, relatively unsatisfied to fly at 130 km / h with its Racer3 – model used by category pilots – was the RacerX, a drone capable of reaching an impressive 289 km / h.

The mark was enough for the ultra-high-speed flying device to be included in the world record book as the world’s fastest drone. For the record, however, the average speed between two passes in the space of 100 meters was considered: the official result was 263.1 km / h.

Performance is possible thanks to four 2500 kV TMotor F80 2407 engines that make the small propellers turn at an impressive 46,000 revolutions per minute.

For DRL competitions, the average speed should remain a little lower – after all; it’s hard enough to see drones flying at half RacerX’s top speed.

Oil Industry Begins to Feel The Impact of Electric Vehicles

It looks like the electric vehicles market has grown big enough to upset big people: Oil companies are reviewing their predictions about the market and realizing – perhaps a little late, that electricity-powered car is a near-inevitable future.

A study conducted by Bloomberg New Energy Finance revealed that OPEC, the Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries, has increased its forecast for the sale of electric vehicles by 2040 – from 46 million to 266 million units.

Other major companies in the segment, such as Exxon Mobil and BP, also decided to revise the numbers that were lifted last year, with the two companies raising their forecasts from 60 million to 100 million vehicles.

In all, the expectation of the oil industry is that the inherent arrival of the electric will reduce the demand for oil by 8 million barrels by 2040, equ

In all, the expectation of the oil industry is that the inherent arrival of the electric will reduce the demand for oil by 8 million barrels by 2040, equivalent to the current production of Iran and Iraq combined.

This could lead to stagnation in the demand for oil in the coming decades and a significant impact on the amount of money that is moving through this industry – about $700 billion per year.

“The number of electric vehicles on the streets will have serious implications for carmakers, oil companies, energy service providers and others,” explains Colin McKerracher, director of advanced transport analysis at BNEF. “There is a significant disagreement between how fast the adoption should be and the visions are changing fast.”

While some consulting firms estimate that electric power will account for 90 percent of sales by 2050, BNEF believes that the exchange of fuel for electricity will only happen in 2040, with 530 million new electric vehicles – or one-third of the world’s fleet – circulating around.

Get Access to the World’s Largest Collection of Cybercrimes

Cybercrime is a problem that has become increasingly dangerous and evolved. With that in mind, the UN has developed the Cybercrime Repository as a way to strengthen international cooperation in the fight against cybercrime.

Currently, the repository is the only tool worldwide available to file laws, cases and cybercrime practices in a database available for research. The information is divided into topics such as global cybernetic investigations, solicitation of stored traffic data, as well as incidents and real-time traffic collections.

According to Loide Lungamenti, head of the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC), the repository facilitates international cooperation by helping authorities to identify applicable crime laws elsewhere.

Lungamenti also claims that more than 80% of cybercrimes work as a form of organized activity, such as creating malware that requires cash value for the retrieval of personal information. And the danger is not only in computers and mobile devices but also in IoT (Internet of Things) devices, so all care and prevention are not enough.

Guiding the authorities correctly, the repository will allow the identification of future crimes based on those that have already occurred. Thus, it will be easier to know how to act and the right decisions to make when it comes to being prevented.

Scientists Want to Recharge Batteries With Body Energy

Batteries are a weakness of the mobile industry. Increasingly powerful, mobile devices require smart solutions to take better advantage of battery power and also recharge faster the power repository of a tablet or smartphone.

Thus, many researchers have sought alternatives to the traditional ways of powering a device. One of the bets is the use of mechanisms capable of collecting energy from the human body, thus dispensing with the use of conventional batteries.

This innovation would be of even greater use in the healthcare industry. If you imagine a device that needs battery power to continue working – like a brain or heart implant – having to remove it to “change the battery” may be something laborious and risky.

“If a device relies on batteries, replacing them would require surgery, then providing medical device resources is a significant advantage and can

This innovation would be of even greater use in the healthcare industry. If you imagine a device that needs battery power to continue working – like a brain or heart implant – having to remove it to “change the battery” may be something laborious and risky.

“If a device relies on batteries, replacing them would require surgery, then providing medical device resources is a significant advantage and can really affect people’s lives,” argues the professor at the University of Southern California in the United States, Dina El-Damak.

From the heat

The most obvious method when talking about this is to get energy from the movement, but many scientists do not bet on this mode for a reason also quite evident: not all devices can afford to function only when the carrier is in motion.

One option considered by some researchers is the piezoelectric method, which generates energy from the pressure applied to certain materials.

However, the favorite of scientists is the energy generated from the heat of the human body, something that we never fail to produce while alive. This method is called thermoelectric generation.

An example of this comes from the University of North Carolina, also in the US, where Professor Daryoosh Vashaee created a device capable of capturing the temperature difference a human body and the external environment to transform into electricity.

The big problem of this modality is the amount of energy obtained by the device, always very low and unable to charge a cell phone. Thus, the method can be applied only to objects that are highly energy-efficient, and they consume very little energy.

From friction

There are also initiatives that study energy creation from material friction – triboelectric generation – as the small generator set up by Georgia Institute of Technology professor Zhong Lin Wang. In this method, the researchers developed a wearable device capable of obtaining energy from the movement and friction between objects.

Although any material causes friction, the right choice can result in an even more efficient method than the thermoelectric generation, says Wang. This type of technology could be implemented in technological clothing, but also in body sensors, greatly expanding its possibilities.

Unfortunately, though, it’s hard to imagine that such a novelty will be available in the short term – Wang believes it takes at least three years before his frictional energy generation system hits the market.

Until then, the great example of this branch is the Matrix PowerWatch, a watch that uses thermoelectric generation to function and was created from a collective financing project.

Do You Know the Difference Between VPN and VPS?

VPNs and VPSs are very similar acronyms, but they mean quite different things; Do you know what they are for?

VPN

VPN is an acronym that stands for Virtual Private Network. This feature is intended to allow data traffic securely, ensuring users’ anonymity as they travel across the network, as well as access to a network even when the person is not physically close to it.

The VPN also allows the use of public networks in a secure way, since with it the information transits with protection.

VPNs are suitable for businesses that require data to be transmitted securely by ordinary users, such as an employee accessing your company’s internal network from home. The VPN also masks your IP to prevent possible blocking by region and for the user to remain anonymous.

In China, Facebook and Google, with all the resources, are blocked, but with the VPN you can access them frequently. The same is true in Arab countries, where all erotic sites or considered inappropriate are also blocked.

VPS

VPS stands for Virtual Private Server (Virtual Private Server, in Portuguese). This feature uses virtualization to split a physical server into multiple virtual servers.

That is, the same hardware can be split into multiple servers, so that each has its own peculiarities and capabilities, functioning as a stand-alone server with separate processing, RAM, traffic, and disk space.

VPS then guarantees autonomy to companies when it comes to configuring a system according to their needs and also to sites since the pages are hosted in a protected environment and with the guaranteed privacy.

VPS is indicated for those who need a non-giant server and can share physical space with other companies, guaranteeing quality service for a lower value than that charged by an exclusive server.
