popsci.comGeologists think there could be a quadrillion tons of diamonds inside our planetIn a new paper published this week, an international team of researchers estimates that about 1 to 2 percent of the Earth’s cratonic roots are made of diamond. That might seem like a small amount, but that tiny fraction is makes up enough of these massive geological formations to account for a quadrillion tons of diamonds. That’s the number 1 followed by 15 zeros!

dogcollarfancy.comPopular Dog Collar MistakesPopular Dog Collar Mistakes A good collar, just like dog playpens for indoors, is an essential part of any dog training toolkit. Unfortunately, many people misuse and misunderstand these devices, and hence fail to reap their full benefits in terms of breeding an obedient, well-behaved dog. To avoid being one of those people - read on, as we explore some of the most popular dog collar mistakes. Using the collar as a quick fix When using a dog collar for the first time, we can sometimes be shocked at the results we achieve, and the immediate difference it seems to make in our dog’s behavior. We can often be just as shocked when the collar is removed, and those results seem to evaporate just as quickly as they arose! In the early days of using a dog collar, there is always a temptation to get carried away and see it as a quick fix to our problems. But to achieve enduring results with a training collar, we must proceed gradually and follow the correct processes and procedures. You see, a training collar is designed for training. Training involves daily repetition, time and hard work. A training collar is a useful tool in training your canine, but it offers no magic solution or shortcut. Overly long training sessions On the other hand, there is such a thing as training your dog too much. Long training sessions can lead to nothing more than disappointment and boredom, as you are forcing your pooch to undergo sessions that exceed his -quite limited - attention span. Some dogs have greater powers of concentration than others, but it is up to you to observe your dog and his reactions, and determine what length of training session will be most beneficial for him. An extra long training session is just as likely to be detrimental to your dog as a short one. Not training yourself also When using a training collar for the first time, you need to do your homework and learn how to use the device properly. Research, read, and follow whatever instructions came with your product. Again, you can’t just jump in and expect the collar to solve all of your problems. The correct set of techniques is required on YOUR part as well. Not understanding the purpose of a training collar A dog collar does not work by causing pain to your dog. In fact, hitting a dog has a detrimental effect in the long run, as it conditions your dog to fear it’s owner and certain objects – including the collar. Properly used, however, a collar creates a strong, bold personality – not a timid and fearful one. Failing to use the right level of force The aim of using a training collar is to get the attention of your dog – not to scare him. Use the level of correction that, first, gets your dog to pay attention – and then, ultimately, to follow instructions. There are many guides out there that can help you determine the level of correction required by your dog. Over-dependence on the collar Only enforcing the rules when your dog’s collar is on will in the long run produce a pet that is dependent on his collar. It is not the training collar, but you the owner’s reaction, whether it is on or not, that makes the difference.2
thecloudtraveler.comFirst Cruise Tips!I booked my first cruise to the Bahamas back in 2015. I was nervous but excited! For those out there that will be traveling by cruise soon or thinking about it, I have some great tips for you and photos from my first cruise! Tip 1: Research ports in advance. On a cruise, everything you’ll need including food, fun, cabins, ports is arranged. Read as much as you possibly can before your cruise. With limited time in port, it pays to hit the books before you go. And even if you’ve booked an excursion, after that three-hour snorkel trip, you might find yourself with several hours to kill. Tip 2: Pack Smart. Shore excursions will run, rain or shine. Don’t get soaked to the bone (or being forced to improvise with garbage bag ponchos, as other cruisers do). Some must-pack items are a lightweight, waterproof jacket, poncho, dry-bag, cool-weather clothing, comfortable shoes and formal wear. Tip 3: Don’t worry about cash on board. When you go through check-in, you’ll receive the key to your room. This “key” is actually like a credit card that you’ll slide into your cabin door to unlock it. But it actually does a lot more. …3
