New Zealand has always been famous for it’s outdoor activities, it is the number one destination in the world for extreme sports. However residents are now increasing spending more time indoors and engaging in online gaming like never before. The advance in technology and use of the internet have allowed for gaming to be possible almost instantly at any time.

Many games have made the transition into the digital world and games that would normally be found in new zealand casinos are now available online. Kiwis are a competitive nation, you only have to see the passion they have for their sports teams to understand why. The New Zealand All Blacks are the most formidable rugby team in the world and the Cricket team narrowly lost the Cricket World Cup in England this month. This is extremely impressive as New Zealand has a population of less than 5 million. With this passion and competitiveness, they are enjoying online gaming more than ever before and new websites are being created all the time for this particular market.

The mix of strategy, skill and luck make these games exciting for Kiwis around the country. Additionally some of the skill-based games are enjoyable to players as they improve certain aspects of the players, including judgment, analytics whilst offering a relaxing way to pass time.

Most New Zealanders live in or nearby the big cities of Wellington and Christchurch but there are many which live away in relatively remote places. In these areas, especially in the Winter months there are not many activities as during the summer. With this many spend an increasingly amount of time enjoying online activities.

New Zealanders are enjoying these online games, however close neigbours Australia are in front in terms of players. They are one of the countries with the highest number of players in the world alongside Canada. Both of these countries have taken to online gaming like no others.

When you travel to New Zealand , remember that whilst they are famous for cricket, rugby and outdoor activities, they have an increasing amount of dedicated gamers online.  The Kiwi’s definitely know how to strike a good work-life balance. They work hard and relax often, using their free time to enjoy all that their spectacular country has to offer. If you have ever seen Lord of The Rings then you will be amazed by the landscapes, all of the blockbuster films were recorded here.

Everyone has heard the news now that Facebook bought Instagram for $1 billion. Actually, it was a billion dollars worth of cash and Facebook stock, but whatever. Close enough. In the ethereal world of tech companies, it’s hard to know if $1 billion is a lot or a little to pay for, well, anything. Trends change, intellectual property is nebulous, and companies can’t keep making the same product or they die.

So while it’s tricky to figure out what a company’s capitalization (or the price of all its shares, public or private) is, it’s pretty easy to see that Instagram got really, really, really lucky in getting scooped by Facebook for a thousand million bucks.

Here’s an simplistic timeline of Instagram’s journey from startup to imaging clearinghouse:

March 5, 2010 – Instagram founder Kevin Systrom recieves $500,000 of seed funding to get cracking on his photography software. This means, on that day, Instagram was worth…$500,000. Not hard to see why.

February 2, 2011 – Instagram chases $7 million more in financing. The terms of the deal offer an Instagram a valuation of $25 million.

April 3, 2012 – Instagram, getting a little big for its britches, pursues $50 million more in venture capital, for a 10% stake in the company. That means the company, on April 3, 2012, was valued at $500 million. Remember that.

April 9, 2012 – Instagram is sold to Facebook for $1 billion.

Do you see the problem here? I feel like this would be a brain teaser in ‘Financial Highlights for Children’. It’s valued at $500 million, then six days later it’s sold to a really rich company for $1 billion. Rich companies don’t normally stay rich for very long when they pay twice market price for anything.

So what happened? 

Neither party is making any official explanations for the move, but the $50 million infusion was in the works about a month before it was announced. Tech companies, especially ones developing apps, can certainly experience huge gains over short periods. Look at Instagram’s geometric growth up to that point. But, there’s more to the story than just “Man! Instagram really appreciated quickly!”

Facebook is the internet’s largest photograph database. It’s the WORLD’S largest photograph database. They saw some competition in Instagram, especially after Instagram managed to move a million copies of its Android app in about 12 hours. So, they took out the competition before things got out of hand  (unless you count paying double market value for a company as “out of hand,” in which case Facebook definitely did NOT act before things out of hand.

Another possible factor: Mark Zuckerberg is really rich, and rich people never know what things cost.

2019 Update

Instagram would be worth more than $100 billion if it were its own company and not a Facebook division, according to Bloomberg. The valuation is based on an analysis Bloomberg Intelligence conducted.  This is unbelievable considering the simplcity of the app and ho it is less than 10 years old.

We all know the feeling of sitting on your couch in the evening as the weekend is coming to an end and realizing a whole new work week is ahead of you—the dreaded Sunday scaries. You’ve probably had this feeling for a long time, even as a kid when the weekend is over and it’s time to head back to school on Monday morning. But, Sundays don’t have to be scary. Giving yourself something to look forward to on Monday is a great way to keep yourself from dreading the end of the week. And, it’s important to make sure you spent the weekend relaxing. That way, you feel refreshed and ready to get back to work by the time Monday rolls around. If you find yourself panicking every Sunday night, help yourself relax and prepare for the week ahead with some of these tips to ditch the Sunday scaries.

1. Make Sunday Your Self-Care Day

The best way to get yourself ready for Monday is by treating yourself the day before. If you’re feeling your best, you’ll go into Monday with a motivated and productive attitude. In the morning, take your time enjoying your cup of coffee and read a book or a newspaper to kickstart your brain. Try not to put off weekend chores until the last minute as it will only make Sunday feel worse. Instead, turn Sunday into a self-care day and plan to do things that are going to make you feel good. Exercise in the afternoon by going for a run, playing a sport or riding your bike. This is a great way to still enjoy the day and setting yourself up for success. Practicing yoga or setting time aside to meditate can also leave you feeling great and mentally recharged. Whatever you choose to do, make it part of your weekly routine so you find yourself looking forward to Sundays instead of dreading them.

2. Plan a Fun Monday Event

One of the reasons we dislike Mondays is because it feels as if all the carefree fun of the weekend comes to a jarring halt. But, it doesn’t have to be that way. Sure, Mondays can be tiring after a day of work, but try to plan a weekly activity on this day to give yourself something to look forward to. It can even just be an at-home routine. Movie junkies might want to make Monday the night that they try to discover a new flick. Keep a list of movies you’re interested in seeing and start crossing them off each week. If you’d rather get out of the house after work, get your friends together for a weekly dinner out or meet at the brewery for a beer to help you unwind. Anything you can do to make Monday more fun will beat off those Sunday scaries.

3. Set a Weekly Goal for Yourself

While sometimes the best way to beat the Sunday scaries is by focusing on yourself and letting yourself forget about work for a little bit, other times it can help to get yourself in the Monday mood the night before. Make a to-do list to help you feel more organized and prepared on Sunday night. This may even give you a sense of empowerment that you already know exactly what needs to be done the next day. Then, set a weekly goal for yourself. This can be something small and simple and doesn’t necessarily have to be work-related. Having a goal for the week in mind will keep you driven and allows you time to reflect on your progress the following Sunday.

4. Read a Book or Watch a Movie Before Bed

Give yourself a chance to escape by falling into a great story, whether you prefer reading a book or settling in for a good movie. While hanging around the house, you can wear your vape around your neck so you can keep it by your side even while you unwind. Movies and books are the perfect forms of entertainment and a super helpful way to distract you from the work-related projects or issues that may start to creep into your mind on Sunday night. Give yourself the night off. After all, it is still the weekend for a few more hours.

5. Hang with a Friend

Everyone gets the Sunday scaries, so why not spend some time with friends to help you both enjoy your Sunday? Plan to grab lunch or chill at the house in the evening and bring your vape along so you can swap vape juice and experiment with new flavors. Spending time with your friends can distract you from the week ahead and remind you that we’re all in this together.

6. Avoid Going Out

If you’re going to meet up with your friends for a drink on Sunday, try to limit your alcohol consumption to just one or two drinks. The only thing that makes a Monday feel worse is fighting off a hangover first thing in the morning. This fits into the idea of self-care Sunday. Set yourself up for success by doing things that are going to make you feel healthy and productive, so you can start your week off on the right foot.

7. Plan an Activity During the Day

Many people make the mistake of saving their weekend chores for Sunday, but instead, try getting your errands done ahead of time and turn the Sunday scaries into Sunday Funday. If the weather is nice, head outdoors and play some cornhole, spend the day at the beach or invite your friends over for a backyard barbecue. Finding a way to enjoy your Sunday will leave you feeling refreshed and ready to go by Monday morning.

The Sunday scaries can set in at any time of day, but instead of giving in to the feeling, remind yourself that Sunday doesn’t have to be so scary. Spend the time pampering yourself to get your mind and body on the same page or head out for a fun day with friends. Most importantly, give yourself something to be excited about on Monday so you find yourself waiting for Sunday nights instead of dreading them.

Rolex DateJust is the classic dressy watch. This luxury icon is the modern symbol of the traditional timepiece, a fashion accessory that mixes peerless aesthetics with outstanding functions. Its lasting design transcends into a true example of exquisite style and subtle elegance. The DateJust defies conventions and restrains by boosting an enduring look that has spanned eras, becoming one of the most recognizable and popular watches on the planet.

In a continuous search for improvement and innovation, Rolex has developed and introduced in 1945 the world’s first wristwatch with an automatically changing date function. This certified, self-winding chronometer model is very appreciated by men with a preference for elegant and sophisticated timepieces. Its dressy appearance and fine choice of materials are the attributes that makes it suitable for classy attires.

The original Rolex Oyster Perpetual DateJust was launched with a 36 mm diameter case which at that time was considered the ideal size for a classic men’s watch. The increasing popularity of the DateJust replica watches collection determined the brand to create smaller men and ladies versions. The mid-size men’s size model measured 31 mm in diameter while the ladies model was 28 mm. The discrete dimensions of the DateJust represent an essential characteristic of this Rolex line.

In 1955, Rolex launched the Turn-o-Graph model that was basically a model which commemorates US Air Force pilots that were part of combat missions. This special edition watch has received the nickname “Thunderbird” and it featured a metallic rotating bezel with raised 60 minutes Arabic numerals that served for measuring time intervals. One of the most important achievements of this model is that it was won by Chuck Yeager when he broke the sound barrier for the first time. As a matter of fact, this timepiece served as inspiration for the creation of the Rolex Explorer, Rolex Submariner and Rolex Sea Dweller. All these watches have the same style of date aperture and rotating bezel that measures elapsed time.

Launch of the Oyster Perpetual DateJust II

In 2009, the brand surprised the watch world by launching the Oyster Perpetual DateJust II, an upgraded design that featured a larger case and an improved automatic movement. The new model had a 41 mm diameter case and it was presented with steel and yellow, white or rose gold Oyster bracelet. The classic style was offered with Rolex’s two classic bracelets: Oyster and Jubilee.

Numerous celebrities have been photographed wearing a Rolex on their wrist. This sleek and elegant timepiece is a real attention grabber and style icon. It emphasizes good tastes, wealth and a high social status. It has also been seen in some notable films. Patrick Bateman wore the Rolex DateJust 16013 in the movie “American Psycho” and a couple of male characters wore a DateJust in the movie “The Informers”. Both of these films are adaptations of Bret Easton Ellis novels. Bill Murray is another fan of the who used a black dial version in “Lost in Translation”. Also, the notorious Paul Newman sported a fabulous DateJust in “Color of money”.

The Rolex DateJust is a stunning timepiece that offers a rich palette of color and material combinations which perfectly reflect the style and personality of its wearers. The elegance is equaled only by its impressive accuracy and functional performances.

In our current digital landscape, it’s almost impossible to separate yourself from politics. When biased political statements and fake news can so easily infiltrate social media websites such as Instagram and Facebook, it’s important to know where you stand on certain issues. Part of knowing where you stand is also being aware of the fact that everybody’s lifestyle is inherently political whether you like it or not. Whether it’s the clothes you wear, which company is manufacturing them, or where you shop, you partake in some sort of political action whenever you choose your outfit for the day. Keeping that in mind, if you have to partake in some sort of political action, why wouldn’t you want to make it something you believe in?

Because expressing yourself politically is not just an important trend, but also a constitutional right, we’ve made a list of 3 of the best ways to express yourself politically with your clothing:

#1. Wear Political Merch

Want to show people who your favorite politician is? Buy and wear their merch! Chances are, the proceeds will go to their political campaign as well, so you can feel confident in the fact that you’re contributing something substantial to the cause. Another good option is to donate to a political charity. Through supporting them, it’s likely that you’ll get clothing and swag to go along with it, allowing you to proudly display your affiliation!

#2. Customize Your Own Shirts

By far the most effective way you can display your political view with your clothing is to design your own custom political t-shirt. As you’re only limited by your own imagination, you can ensure that you express your political views in the way that is most true to you. Whether you are looking to back a candidate, or show support for a specific social justice movement, the designs are only limited by what you can come up with! Custom Ink has a great selection of t-shirt styles ready for you to make your own – so click here to get started!

By far the most effective way you can display your political view with your clothing is to design your own custom political t-shirt.

#3. Make a Statement with Your Dollar

One of the most effective things you can do with your money is put it where your politics are. For example, giving money to organizations that don’t follow the same politics as you do is a way of contributing to those political causes. If a store you buy shirts at donates a portion of their proceeds to a political campaign you don’t like, show where your politics are by not shopping at that store anymore. It might seem difficult to not get your favorite products from a certain place, but in the long run you’ll show your politics on your metaphorical and literal sleeves! If you know a local business that supports good political causes, that’s even better! This also doesn’t mean you have to resort to different types of outfits—it’s perfectly possible to still have fancy fashion while also using your money wisely!

Open relationships are beautiful ones! Truth be told, our generation isn’t the first set of individuals to engage in it, however, it can be said without been too far from the truth that this generation has brought perfection to this type of relationship.

Herein this post, you would be learning basically, the benefits of an open relationships. The nitty gritty of everything you would enjoy as a partner in an open relationship, and how to bring up polygamy with your partner.

Albeit, before we move into the main deal, let’s get ourselves totally ready with knowing what exactly an open relationship is.

Many confuse open relationships for relationships who practice “public display of affection (PDA),” but it’s wrong. They’re two different situations.

So, a quick one; an open relationship is a type of relationship in which both partners in the relationship are given a free access to having sex, and a few times, emotional attachments to other people apart from their partners. The open relationship is part of the larger category of the non-monogamous relationship.

Just not to get things mixed up again, it is important you note that open relationships are different from swinging. Swinging is a relationship wherein the partners are purely sexual – nothing more. In this kind, the partners are given access to have sex with other people in parties. The main difference between the open relationship is simply the sexuality – swingers are in the relationship just to have sex, and no other plans of settling together, or thereabout. The benefits of an open relationship are also slightly different from those of swinging.

Open relationships are also different from polyamory. In polyamory, the partners are allowed to pursue even more than one committed relationship at a time. More like Polygamous marriage (although there are great differences too). All-in-all, open relationships can be regarded as the mid-point between swinging and polyamory.

So, after getting a perfect insight on what an open relationship is, then we are good to go to move to the main section of this article; the benefits of an open relationship.

The Benefits of An Open Relationship

Reading all that are above, you too should have realized that there is a whole lot of benefits in an open relationship.

Open relationships and flirting with strangers has even been proven to be good for your health.And just after this paragraph, I would be highlighting all of these benefits in details. We are good to go, right!

1. Lesser Responsibilities

Okay, so the direct opposite of an open relationship is the “closed relationship,” and I would be doing more of comparison henceforth.

Now, unlike closed relationships, wherein you need to commit your whole self to another person, and vice versa, an open relationship comes with fewer responsibilities.

In open ones, your partners, although do not care less, they are allowed not to get extremely committed. They are allowed to parry extra responsibilities. There is no need regarding your partner as an extension of yourself, which is one of the prerequisites of as closed relationship.

2. More Options

Open relationships create more options for partners. And the truth is, every human love having more options. More of everything. So, you see the catch? It’s always nice when you can flirt with other people without worrying about what your partner will think or react.

The beauty of the several option open to you is that it basically helps you get to taste more of life – having a better feeling of living. It’s both beautiful and interesting – because you would get to be open to several options, yet without having to get committed with any, or choose, but can just dabble through all of them.

This also gives room for experimentation and exploration, yet without having the risk of losing you relationship.

3. Extreme Honesty

Another interesting one from the whole lot of benefits of an open relationship is that it breeds honesty. An extreme one at that. Open relationship allows space for truthful communication between partners involved, and this in turn helps in easing the tension, and also eliminating every form of strain that could be present in the relationship.

Unlike closed relationships wherein dishonesty is the sun – overhead, open relationships negate that idea. This as well helps in easing partners of the load of pain they might go through upon realization that their other partner has been cheating. And this is why nowadays, we experience more break ups in closed relationships that in the open ones.

4. No Room for Cheating

Need we treat this again? Cause its quite self-explanatory. You almost definitely wouldn’t think about your partner cheating when there is actually nothing your guys are hiding from yourselves.

In an open relationship, your partner is always aware of who you’re hooking up with, places you visit, and all. With all of these, asides persons with personality issues, you wouldn’t want to even grow any form of suspicions towards your partner. And this exactly is what an open relationship is all about- freedom, yet without being accused of cheating!

5. Elimination of Monotony (Boredom)

Can you really get bored in an open relationship? Well, I wouldn’t really know, although it is a most likely no! Cause, both of you get to meet different kinds of people. You both get varied sex lives, and social life.

It’s quite simple actually; anytime you are with your partner, there is always this feeling first-time-ness. Like you guys just met. You feeling me? The freshness is there. And then when you both have sex, boom! The main deal. The affection just keeps growing, you know,

You both can’t just get bored, nor tired of each other. Except in extremely rare cases anyways. This as well helps in preventing you both from settling into the “familiar zone,” the “see-finish zone,” hence making thing keep getting exciting.

Conclusion

Truth be told, many a people doesn’t really fancy the idea of open relationships, although that are a few who would always say a yes to it. But really, open relationships aren’t that bad, and for me, it is one of the best schemes of curbing the menace of cheating and hurting one’s partner in a relationship.

Those are the benefits of an open relationship up-there. Do you have questions? Or would you like to share your experience in an open relationship? I would really want to hear from you, you know.

The debate about how vain an individual is, can always be a long and tedious conversation and usually leads to someone being offended; however, some individuals are and love to be vain and this is most apparent case with some drivers. The reason I brought this up is because I came across a controversial study the other day called ‘Doin It For The Gram’, from Manchester based Car Leasing firm All Car Leasing; which looked at social media habits as well as driving habits across the population of the UK. Part of the study looked at how often individuals post to social media and how age, location and gender can all make influences on how much you post.

The overall conclusion was that those who own private plates, modify their car and clean often were more than likely to post to social media than the other candidates; which you would probably expect. However, the interesting fact was that millennials (aged 24-34) were the most likely to post to social media. With 70% of them having posted to social media, and of that percentage, 68% of them were surprisingly females. The study therefore suggesting they are the vainest respondents. Because of the study, I wanted to support those who were flagged as ‘vain’ by creating a short guide on taking the best Instagram shots for cars to get the greatest number of likes!

Instagram Guide on getting more likes on car related posts: Use of Hashtags:

Although many people have stopped using hashtags these days it doesn’t mean that they are not effective; because they are! Instagram posed hashtags as a way to string content together in categories so people who don’t follow you can access your content through the hash amongst others. This means that more people will be able to see your pictures and therefore will increase likes as well. #car #throttle #boyracer

Using Filters and getting the best possible angle:

When taking pictures of your car, or anything for the matter, it is imperative to get a good angle for the shot. It may mean that you must sit on the floor to get the best possible angle, but it’s worth all that effort of getting back up! Having a good angle accentuates the look of the car amongst the background and this couples well with the use of filter’s as well!

Tagging your location:

Tagging your location may seem like it does nothing, but it provides more of a sense of personality and makes it easier for users to discover your photos. This goes well with writing a great caption as well, something that is witty and funny always entices people to like!

Post at the right time:

It also makes a difference as to when you post to Instagram and this goes for every social media. Posting mid-day when people are working is ineffective, as nobody will be scrolling through timelines at that moment in time. Posting just after work, or after an evening meal is the primetime for social media usage!

In the last five to ten years, dating apps such as Tinder, Bumble, and OkCupid have become extremely popular. These apps have been helping people to find each other, to hookup, and yes, surprisingly, to start relationships.

However, while many of these apps are extremely popular in the straight dating community, there is a lot of debate around whether or not hookup sites and apps are as effective and as widely used for gay men (and lesbians too).

The Influence of Grindr

Grindr is the most significant hookup site/app for gay men. This app was created in 2009. Since its inception, it has pretty much been the go-to site/app for gay men to find hookups. This app allows gay men to find an attractive male to hook up with without having to go to the bars or the clubs. Its convenience and its simplicity are the keys to its success.

Over the years, Grindr has been able to maintain its status as a great way for gay men to find hookups. In fact, Grindr still boasts 3.8 million daily active users. It has users in 234 different countries, and the average Grindr user spends 54 minutes on the app per day. So, if you had any doubts about whether or not gay men are still using Grindr to meet each other, the answer is definitely yes!

Other Great Gay Dating Apps/Sites

Despite the fact that Grindr is still the undisputed king of the gay male dating app world, there are a number of other apps and sites that gay men use frequently to hookup. Some of the other apps that gay men are using are GayFriendFinder, Outpersonals, Adam4Adam, Scruff, ManPlay, Gaydar, SilverDaddies, and Gays.com. Want even more? Here are a bunch of gay hookup sites with reviews.

Between all of these sites and apps, tens of millions of gay men are connecting with each other every single day to arrange dates, hookups, and connections. So, if you are a gay man and are wondering if you will be able to find a connection through one of these apps or websites, the reality is that it is almost certain that you will be able to find someone to at least hookup with on these sites.

Most of these sites and apps only cost a few dollars per month, which makes them highly affordable and highly convenient for the hordes of gay men who benefit from them. Their affordability is one of the main reasons why they are so popular. For less than a drink or two at your favorite gay bar, you can swipe on an unlimited amount of sexy singles and flirt to your heart’s desire.

Is it better to meet your man on a site/app or in person?

Many people claim that it is better to meet your boyfriend or hookup partner in real life because this means that it is more natural, or that it was “meant to be.” While it is true that it might feel more romantic to meet your partner in person under some sort of interesting circumstance, the reality is that it can be a lot easier to meet your man through a dating site.

You can also be a lot more objective when you are using a dating site because you don’t have to worry about hurting the person’s feelings if you reject them and seeing their sad facial expressions. All you have to do is swipe left and move onto the next handsome stud. With dating apps, there is no guilt, it is just pure lust.

However, once you start getting matches on dating sites and apps, you will still need to be able to have good conversational skills, just as you do in real life. But, because you are not having an actual in person conversation, you will get to prepare your responses better, which can make it easier to think of that perfect witty little thing to say.

Conclusion

There is no doubt that countless gay men are still using dating apps to find lovers. The only question is whether or not you are better off using dating apps or going to the bars to meet your gay mate.

If you are someone who is outgoing and who has no problem approaching people at bars, then you might be far better off trying to meet singles at bars. However, if you are more of a shy type of person, then you may prefer swiping on profiles on dating apps, where it is safer and easier.
