Objects You Know but Not Really: Wengie Tells All

There are things that we use each day and really have no idea what the capabilities of those items are in their entireties. YouTube personality, Wengie, understands this theory quite well and made one of her incredible videos  depicting how little we know about some of the most common objects in the world. The beauty blogger was intent to show her viewers some crafty things and she did just that, per usual.


Cosmetic Symbol


There is a symbol on most cosmetics that resembles a can with an open lid. Most have ignored this symbol directly because they believe it is irrelevant or that it has to do with marketing. What it really is, though, is an expiration date for that particular product. Tending to be either six, twelve, or twenty-four months, this symbol is important to recognize and follow.


The Pot Hole


Have you ever noticed the hole that is on every pot or pan handle? Some may believe that this is to hang said pots up, but it is actually to hold the cooking utensil you are using, specifically a wooden spoon. Designed to hold the spoon in place until it is needed again, this hole is useful in more ways than one!


Spaghetti Fork


The utensil specifically designed for spaghetti has a nifty hole directly in its center that few recognize as being useful. Some may opt to think that it is to drain water, but it is actually designed to measure out the proper amount of spaghetti, which is one serving. If you are cooking for three people, fill the hole three times.


Blue and White Erasers


According to Wengie, These erasers are half blue and half white. Due to the different colors, people believe that the blue side is for pen ink. It is actually for pencils and the white side is to smooth out the paper afterward.

How Online Reputation Management Agencies Are Winning The War Against Cyber Bullies?

With the rise of the Internet, cyber attacks and online scams are also increasing day by day. Among these, cyber bullying is becoming a common phenomenon that can destroy the reputation of common individuals. Due to the nature of the Internet, there is little that an individual can do to combat the cyber bully because most of the time, the attacker is anonymous who finds it easier to hide behind the online sphere. In simple words, the attacker can be anyone from around the world. IN addition, cyber bulling is becoming very dangerous because an increasing number of attackers are hiring third-parties in other parts of the world, who are not afraid to post negative comments to defame the victim. Unfortunately, these third-parties are difficult to stop because they operate from jurisdictions where local laws on cyber-crime are nearly non-existent.

According to Internet experts and crime analysts, cyber attacks on individuals can occur from anyone without a significant reason. Recently, law enforcement agencies have pressed charges against attackers who suggested that they defamed a person just because they were bored, and they had nothing else to do. However, the victim of the attacks have to pay a heavy price for the action because online harassment can create an ecosystem of harassment that doesn’t fade away, In fact, the online material becomes part of the individual’s online reputation. Such incidence can be very damaging as potential employees and other stakeholders can easily get access to such material, which further complicates issues.

Fortunately, online Reputation Defender agencies are playing their part by rectifying the problem. These companies have the resources and manpower to confront attackers. They solve issues by deleting fake entries from attackers and posting new entries that provide an accurate picture of the person. In fact, several high-profile executives and celebrities have also started using online reputation management companies because these companies have the contact and power to seek out attackers and force them to remove entries, where applicable. It will not be an overstatement to suggest that online reputation management agencies have succeeded where law enforcement and cyber-crime agencies have failed.


The Career of One Russian Education Entrepreneur

Alexei Beltyukov is an entrepreneur who began his career in medicine. However, he later decided that business was a better fit for him and got his MBA from INSEAD. Right after this, he proved his acumen in the field by launching various business ventures, all of which were successful. In 2013, he founded an angel investing club called Endemic Capital. Other ventures founded by him during this time were Mechanicus, New Gas Technologies and A-Ventures.

His most notable work, however, was done in the field of philanthropy and an online homework project called SOLVY where Alexei Beltyukov serves as COO.

Work at SOLVY – SOLVY is an online venture helping students in high school grasp the concepts of mathematics. This online system not only helps students solve their problems and clear their doubts in maths but also ropes in the teachers into the equations.

Teachers can access various topics and subjects, and check if their students are progressing as per expectations. The progress of the student can be tracked in the tool itself and when the entire class is enrolled, teachers can also ascertain whether all the students have properly understood the concept.

Teachers can offer instant feedback on student progress and help them with any doubts that may occur. The idea of SOLVY is to help students apply mathematical concepts to real life problems, thus making their knowledge more long lasting and practical.

SOLVY Beta Version Launch – Alexei Beltyukov became the Chief Operating Officer of SOLVY in February 2015 and within 2 months, the online project was ready to release a public Beta version which was successfully accomplished under Alexei Beltyukov’s leadership.

The project debuted in EdSurge’s LA tech conference in front of various experts and educators. The people present at the conference commended SOLVY and Alexei Beltyukov for their forward thinking, particularly on the company’s elimination of MCQ questions.

It was also mentioned that instead of pitting students against each other, SOLVY had turned maths into a quest for knowledge by encouraging mistakes so that children could learn to grow.

Alexei Beltyukov said that he was glad about the great reception of SOLVY and emphasized that SOLVY was to become a household name in the subject. He added that the idea was to ensure students were progressing even when they were outside the classroom.

Currently, Alexei Beltyukov is on the FORO Energy Board of Directors as an observer. His philanthropic works include the Russian Alumni Scholarship that was launched with his help at INSEAD.

Norka Luque is the Music Sensation That Was Found By Accident

Norka Luque is becoming a household name for her beautiful voice and faith based lyrics. The gorgeous girl came from good stock and she was always encouraged by her parents to use her musical abilities for good. In fact, they believed that she had music in her soul, so they got her both vocal and musical lessons at a very young age. Born in 1986, she is from the South American nation of Venezuela, and Caracas is her birth city. When she graduated from high school, she moved to France to study Business Administration. She graduated with a degree in Culinary Arts as well as Marketing. While she had degrees and titles, what she really longed to be was a singer.


Since Norka  was in the European community, she tried her luck with local bands in the area. She toured many cities and became a highly sought after voice as she traveled. During a stint in Miami, Florida, she ran into music producer Emilio Estefan Jr. Back in 2008, she was still very new to the music industry and was looking for her way in. Estefan immediately saw something special in her, and he signed her for a deal.


She recently released an album entitled “Tomorrowland.” Though Estefan is no longer her manager, he still supports her to strive for bigger and better things. What so many notice about this young star is that her lyrics are quite different. She is not singing about depressing subjects, rather, she wants to encourage others. Some have said she has the voice of an angel. She wants to be a positive influence on the music world, and it appears that she has already made a huge impact.


In 2012, the Latino Show Magazine did an exclusive story about her. They brought special attention to the song Milagro. The message in this song is positive and needed for those who are facing a personal crisis. It gives hope when there may be none left. While most pop singers are using lyrics that talk about their boyfriend/girlfriend leaving, hating their life, and being broke, Lupe’s songs are inspirational. She tends to talk about faith and hope. Being such an encouraging force in a negative world is hard, but she manages to motivate those around her. She’s still rather new in the music industry, but if the past couple years mean anything, it shows this girl is going places.
