Knowledge / Beer O'clock: 10 beers that represent their country
« on: April 28, 2012, 09:06:20 PM »
Beer: a source of national pride, tax revenue and hangovers. Here are ten of the most famous beers in the world and facts you never knew about them.

1. Victoria Bitter - Australia



Served in classic stubby bottles, Victoria Bitter markets itself as the best cold beer. Detractors claim that’s because it’s only worth tasting when it’s near frozen. Despite that, it’s still the top selling beer in Australia.

2. Guinness - Ireland



This dry stout with a black hue is famous the world over. Two interesting facts about Guiness: A perfect pour should take 119.50 seconds and 110 million pints of Guinness are consumed each day.

3. Corona - Mexico



You can’t get Corona on tap, only from a bottle. But it’s a bottle that’s available in 170 countries. The classic way to drink it is with a lemon or lime squeezed in the top.

4. Tiger Beer - Singapore



Jason Statham is seen drinking Tiger Beer in the movie The Transporter and Jackie Chan wakes up with a Tiger Beer bottle in The Accidental Spy, proving there’s an undeniable link between action heroes and Tiger Beer.

5. Budweiser - United States of America



Wassup? Budweiser – the beer of America. But did you know that German beer regulations do not consider the American giant an actual Budweiser beer because it has too much rice in it? Strange but true.

6. Carling - United Kingdom




Carling was invented by a Yorkshire farmer back in 1818. First brewed in Canada and now owned by Coors, it doesn’t feel like a British beer – but it’s still the number one lager in the UK!

7. Duvel - Belgium



Duvel, a strong Beligan beer, means ‘devil’ in Dutch. In the 1920s someone who had sunk a few pints of this 8.5 per cent beer suggested the name and somehow it stuck.

8. Asahi - Japan



During the First World War, Japan forced German prisoners of war to work in the Asahi brewery to ensure production of beer didn’t halt. Today Asahi is as popular outside of Japan as it is within.

9. Carlsberg - Denmark



Carlsberg isn’t just popular in Denmark – it’s the leading beer in Russia as well. Interesting fact: it’s named after the son of the man who started the original brewery back in 1847.

10. Tsingtao - China



Deckard (Harrison Ford) orders this beer after killing the replicant Zhora in Blade Runner. Also, Clint Eastwood is seen swigging from a Tsingtao in the movie Grand Torino. If it’s good enough for them...

Travel / Grampians and Falls Creek - Australia
« on: April 25, 2012, 04:55:37 AM »
Last Christmas during my break I decided to go somewhere which wasn't planned as a friend of mine called me night before we had to leave.

The Grampians National Park

HISTORY & BACKGROUND:

Declared a National Park in 1984, The Grampians National Park is an oasis of diversity, set amongst the agricultural Western District of Victoria. The 167,000 acres house around a third of Victoria's plant species, and forms a safe haven for many species of marsupial and mammal.

The region has become immensely popular with a wide demographic, and understandably so - the park has something to offer everyone. Outlandish rock architecture is covered with gently undulating native forest . . . wildlife is abundant and viewable . . . the air is crisp . . . and during spring, the park vibrates with colour.

Whether you're a weekend visitor, eager to relax and enjoy the atmosphere - or a zealous rockclimber ready for a challenge - The Grampians National Park has something for you to delight in.

News Khabran / BMW drivers more likely to cheat
« on: April 19, 2012, 01:18:32 AM »

BMW drivers more likely to cheat, Illicit Encounters survey finds Save this story to read later From: news.com.au

What are these?
-BMW drivers the most likely to cheat, finds survey
-Audi the next most unfaithfull in the rankings
-Argued that more success means more risk taking


UNDER the heading of Stuff We Don't Need To Know But Will Read Anyway comes a survey that says if you own a BMW, you are more likely to have an extra-marital affair.

The survey, from UK-based dating website Illicit Encounters, claims to have polled its 640,000 members and found that 19.21 per cent of male members who admitted to being unfaithful were BMW owners, reported Carsguide.com.au.

Audi came in second as the choice of car for the wandering partners with 8.79 per cent, then Mercedes with 8.23 per cent, Jaguar (6.5 per cent) and Land Rover (4.94 per cent).

Illicit Encounters spokesperson Rosie Freeman-Jones says "there's an intrinsic link between success and cheating".

"Successful people are often risk-takers, and have got to where they are by setting their standards high," she says. "However, these people are also less likely to settle for unsatisfying relationships or monotony."

Knowledge / How to work with Mean Girls ?
« on: April 11, 2012, 09:41:49 PM »
Is there a particular person at work who just gets to you? Does she undermine you, belittle your achievements in front of colleagues or take credit that’s due to you?

Psychologist Meredith Fuller wrote her book Working With Mean Girls, after noticing an increasing number of her female clients coming to her after being bullied or “bitched at” by other women at work. If you’re working with a mean girl who’s getting you down, follow Fuller’s four-step plan before you think about walking out the door.

How To Avoid Office Politics

1. “Take steps to see if you can identify a pattern of behaviour by the other woman,” advises Fuller, who says to take notes of particularly nasty comments or actions by her that leave you feeling uncomfortable or victimised. Also, ask others whom you trust if they’ve noticed anything odd about the other woman’s behaviour towards you.

2. Decide the direction you want to take with your mean girl, offers Fuller. “If you are uncomfortable with ‘calling’ her on her activities, or suspect that confrontation may leave blood on the wall, it may be wiser to develop strategies to deflect her.” Fuller says to minimise the time you’re alone with her and be ready with responses if she comes at with you with more criticism.

Be Your Own Career Coach

3. If none of your tactics are working, it might be time to get serious and get some help, suggests Fuller. “Research the range of resources and support available - HR, organisational policy, protocols and procedures,” she says. Ask friends what they would do, or have done, in this kind of situation to see what might work for you, and ask a trusted colleague or mentor for advice.

4. “If you’ve exhausted all the possibilities for harm minimisation, and you recognise that your health is being affected [like stress, illness], you might consider a transfer, job change, or sabbatical,” advises Fuller. This might feel extreme, but remember, life is short and we spend the majority of ours at work. So if you’re not feeling happy, fulfilled and supported, start looking for a place where you’ll be appreciated.

Pics / Five creative projects for the avid photographer
« on: April 10, 2012, 09:24:34 PM »
With smartphones boasting excellent lenses and good point-and-shoot cameras becoming more affordable, photography has become a greater part of everyone's life.
Photography

Whether your smartphone is your primary lens, or you've adopted a dSLR that hardly leaves your side, this collection of tips can be enjoyed by just about anyone.

1. Make huge prints inexpensively. Like a neighbourhood Italian restaurant decorated with large canvas photos from the better days, your home can really get a lift from displaying large prints of family and friends. Most of us, however, will quickly dismiss this idea after a glimpse at the price of canvas prints. Sidestep this barrier with a simple tutorial from Jenny Komenda, who shows you how to make large canvas-style prints on the cheap.

2. DIY Instagram photo strips. Insta-addicts will love this simple tutorial that will help you turn your carefully edited Instagram shots into vintage-style photo strips to display in your office, gift to friends or use as a bookmark for your "old-school" books. Get the steps here.

3. Wood photo transfers. Photojojo, an awesome website packed with unique photography-related gadgets and novelty items, never fails with its DIY projects. This time around, the clever staff shows you how to transfer a photo to a wooden surface and create a one-of-a-kind piece of art where your photo takes centre stage.

4. Your headphones as shutter release. iPhone users, did you know? Your headphones can double as a shutter release, allowing you to take super-steady shots from a distance. This isn't a project, per se, but will become a go-to technique for any avid iPhotographer. Get the quick tip here.

5. A simple, effective portrait set-up. Gorgeous portrait shots often seem difficult to achieve. The immediate assumption is that the photographer must have used a high-end camera with an equally pricey lens. Sometimes that's the case, but in general, lighting and technique is more important than fancy equipment. Rachel Durik shows you her easy, DIY set-up over at her photography blog, Savour Photography.

Pics / DSLR Camera Modes & Common Terms associated with it
« on: April 03, 2012, 09:11:22 PM »
If your just learning about your camera then chances are you would have taken one look at the top of your camera and would have immediately became confused, however you don’t need to worry as i’m going to explain what each and every one of these camera modes does.




Automatic ([])

The automatic button really doesn’t need much of an introduction as you can probably guess by the name what it does.  The automatic button allows your camera to set all of your camera options “automatically” to produce the exposure that it thinks is correct.

Automatic mode doesn’t allow you to set the shutter speed, aperture, ISO or even the flash which often pops up and ruins your photos.  If you don’t know how to use your camera and start shooting in this mode I would advise against it as it won’t help you one bit and your images will more than likely come out terrible.

Program Mode (P)

The program mode is a mode for beginners to start to understand their cameras.  Program mode is similar to automatic in the way that it allows the camera to make the decision on which settings to use to correct the exposure.  Once the settings are selected you can easily change them for example if the camera thinks that the correct shutter speed would be 1/200 of a second but you think this is too slow then you can change it so it gives you a shutter speed of 1/400.

If you don’t know much about cameras I would recommend using this mode to start off with.

Aperture Priority (AV, A)

Aperture priority is a mode in which you set the aperture while the shutter speed will be automatically set for you to give the correct exposure.  This mode is useful when you want to achieve a certain depth of field, for example if you wanted a shallow depth of field (not much in focus) then you could set the aperture to your lenses lowest amount and if you wanted a wide depth of field you could set it to its highest aperture value.

Shutter Priority (TV)

Shutter priority is similar to aperture priority, this time however you only set the shutter speed and the rest is done for you.  This mode is useful when you want to tell the camera that you only want to shoot photos at a certain speed and not any lower.

Manual (M)

Once you have learnt how to use your camera you will want to be shooting in manual mode as much as possible.  While in manual mode you are able to change all of the settings as you see fit.  Aperture, ISO, Shutter speed and white balance settings can all be change to create the image you’re looking for.

Learning to shoot in manual will help you understand photography in greater detail and will allow you to produce good consistent shots each and every time.

Some commonly used terms :

What is aperture?



Aperture is the term used to describe what is simply the hole in the lens that light travels through to reach the camera’s sensor or film. This hole can be set at different sizes, and combined with shutter speed, you get the two main settings which control exposure. There is some maths involved to get the actual values, but to be honest, that doesn’t really matter. What’s more important is to know what aperture is, and what happens when you change it. Getting your head round aperture can be a bit of a hurdle, so hopefully this will help a little bit.

What is Shutter ?

Open/close


The shutter is a mechanical or electro-mechanical device which opens and closes a defined aperture to allow light to enter a camera to expose film or to allow an image to be recorded on digital media electronically. Shutters can also be used to control the exposure (the time they are open) to ensure the proper amount of light enters the system. Shutters can also be used to switch lasers, control the amount of light that is placed on a sample within a microscope, control x-rays, cut off light to protect sensitive equipment, etc.
