Сhoosing a Keyboard.

The choice of the keyboard depends on the way you use the computer. If it is used mostly for typing then the best choice would be the keyboard that has two separate parts: one for the right hand and another one for the left hand. But it works only if you type with both hands and all the ten fingers are used. If you hold a cup of coffee in one hand and type with the other one it is not going to be very convenient. Actually, the only method of typing that is going to work here is the one where you use all the fingers. If you prefer using computer as a multimedia center or a gaming console then you probably shouldn’t buy this type of keyboard. In this case it is better to buy a regular multimedia keyboard. Multimedia keyboards tend to have a big number of additional keys and they can be switched to the mode where standard keys have different functions.

Slow Food Movement vs. Fast Food Society

The modern world makes us face a great amount of different tasks and deal with them all at once. There is no time to sit down and relax or to think another moment or two, or even spend some extra time on eating. That’s why the industry of fast food is so popular in the nowadays society. Like a giant spider, it spreads its McDonald’s, KFS and Sbarro legs all over the world making us forget about healthy and naturally tasting food. However, a couple of decades ago a public movement has appeared which fights for returning the fashion on healthy products.

This movement is called Slow Food and was organized in 1989 in Italy by an Italian journalist Carlo Petrini. Originally it was supported by fifteen countries but now about 150 states promote Slow Food movement. It has its own manifesto which establishes concrete goals of this organization. Among them, for instance, is promoting the use of high quality products, explaining the damage caused by fast food, encouraging farming on the local and international levels, preserving the traditions and uniqueness of national cuisine and anti-standardization of taste.

My new favorite video.

Recently I was browsing through YouTube and I found this music video. From its very first seconds I understood clearly that that was something unreal and just pure magical to me.

Hope you enjoy their awesome music as much as I do!
