Top 10 most intelligent animals in the world

Here’s a list of most intelligent animals in the world. The animal listed here is sorted by the level of intelligence. This list can’t be used as a scientific reference as this is just for your information. So If You have other more intelligence animals that should be listed here, please just comment on this post. So Let’s take a look at top 10 most intelligent animals in the world.

                                   1. African Grey Parrot 

 

African gray parrot is a species found in West and Central African rain forest. Parrots is famous to show that they can imitate human speech, but the African Gray can associate words with meaning and form small sentences. This bird communicate with each other through songs, calls, and body language. African Gray’s can easily be trained to have conversations and activities. They can be managed to imitate, create voices and imitate sound of household perfectly. One specific example is Alex birds. Alex can identify more than fifty objects, seven colors, five shapes, and a numeric value to six. Alex understands the difference between large and small, above and below, and even show emotion understanding by telling handlers “to go away” when he became bored with the test. Then there is the story of the African Gray Parrot in Nagarey, Japan lost from the owner, wounded, and sent to the animal hospital. While in hospital the bird began to speak with the vet says “I’m Mr. Yosuke Nakamura.” He also provides a complete home address to the last number. Pretty sure he was right and returned to the house, but not before entertaining the hospital with a song and dance.

Top Ten Ways to Meet Someone Online



Face the facts: it is getting harder to find someone in what most people would call the “real world.” Many people, then, just opt to search for love online. Some may judge these searchers as mostly desperate and lonely folks who can’t bother going out to meet somebody the “normal” way. Think about it though: what is normal these days? The Internet has played a vital role in the lives of modern people, so what’s wrong with finding someone online? Humans have a natural instinct to crave love, to enjoy being touched (physically and emotionally), and to love someone. When you finally find somebody that you can spend your life with, does it really matter how you found them?



10) You’ve Got Mail



Email
Thinking about his email add
How can anyone forget that heart wrenching and “aww”-inducing Tom Hanks and Meg Ryan movie? Email is what usually comes after chatting, but it can also be used for meeting people. It’s not exactly a traditional way of meeting someone, because you need the person’s address first before you can send them an email in the first place, but this is when common sense helps you out. If you are a curious and brave enough person, you can actually check out the addresses that are included in the forwarded emails that friends send you. This kind of technique is pretty old school, but old school techniques can work just as well. (Want to know why Emails are essential, read 10 overlooked functions of Email)

Red Beach is located in Panjin, Liaoning Province, in northeastern China. It is the largest and best protected wetland in the world with rare and precious red reed marshes. The ebb and flow of the sea forms the beach, while the infiltration of salts and alkali contributes to its red appearance. The 100 square kilometers of reed marshes turn color during September, becoming spectacular vistas. The well-preserved wetlands are also home to large numbers of wild birds, including red-crowned cranes and Saunders' gulls.  The beach is a popular tourist site for those who live inside and outside Liaoning Province. 10 more images after the break...

The Least Sexy Vampires of All Time

Sure, Robert Pattinson is hot. We get it. Kellan Lutz is, too. Sure. With the overabundance of sexy vampires in the Twilight movies and in shows like True Blood (yeah, yeah, Alexander Skarsgard), there seems to be a complete bias against those on the other end of the handsome spectrum. To combat the proliferation of "Sexiest Vampires" lists online, we sought the help of vampire expert Meredith Woerner, author of Vampire Taxonomy: Identifying and Interacting with the Modern-Day Bloodsucker and blogger for sci-fi site io9.com, to unearth the fanged men and women who aren't so easy on the eyes. Here, your guide to the famously unattractive vampires ... at least compared to R-Patz. Read more: Least Sexy Movie Vampires - Pictures of Ugly Vampires in Film - Marie Claire

Jamie Campbell Bower, The Twilight Saga
Despite the fact that there have already been three movies in the film franchise, it's not easy to find a mildly unattractive vampire in the lot. Woerner only offered up the Volturi, namely the white-haired Caius Volturi, from 2009's New Moon. Not only does his skin tone blend too seamlessly with his locks, but his red eyes are an embarrassment next to Edward Cullen's. Plus, unlike his super-power-wielding Volturi brethren, Caius has no known special power, which doesn't bode well with the ladies.

Amazing Naked Body Paintings Art


All of these were submitted by user that wishes to remain anonymous. I can’t blame him, considering improper debates some of our “immature” users started in previous body paint comments. I wish to remind you this is art, and I just hope all of you are mature enough to understand it. Even if these models were completely naked (which they are), it would still be art. Now when we cleared this, we can start describing these illusions. If you jump inside this article (or if you came here by optical illusion of the day widgets, you are already inside the post), you will see bunch of amazing camouflage body paintings. Some models like the first one, are painted in a way to camouflage with their background, and some are professionally painted to appear they are wearing clothes. Which one do you find most amazing? I like the first one most, because I’m big fan of camouflage illusions. Enjoy, and please share the link! You can also visit body paint category for more…

Make Him Want You More!

You know he likes you, but you don’t know how much, is it? And you are trying to find out what he thinks about you, hm? The best advice here is to keep at it and make him want you more. So much that he confesses his love for you. There is one golden rule to attract men – look good and avoid complexity. But that’s not all; there’s something more; and if you are looking for that ‘something more’, these tips will tell you how to attract a guy in no time and keep him wanting more. Keep reading.

Signs That A Guy Likes You

There he was. Smiling at me and on his way to come over and talk to me. I could feel my heartbeats go at double speed than the normal as he came closer and closer. He was tantalizingly close to me and we were almost to be locked into a kiss and ……Zap! The alarm went on and I could not reach the climax and get the much awaited kiss! Sigh! Never mind. At least in my dreams I was sure that the guy (handsome, reasonably good physique and on a slightly darker side) did like me. But when it comes to reality, I am sure it is not easy as this. I mean can you be 100% sure that a guy likes you? Okay, even if he does, would you vouch for the fact that he would like you as you want him to? Sounds confusing? Well, thinking about signs that a guy likes you and being on the lookout for them can really make you go crazy till something concrete happens about the relationship. In this article I will try and uncover these teeny weeny as well as sure indications that a guy is totally into you!

Getting Your Long Term Boyfriend To Propose To You

It’s been more than 5 years, but, has your boyfriend still not asked you for your hand in marriage? Do you see any signs that he will propose in near future? Do you know how to get your long term boyfriend to propose to you? If you answered all these questions in a negative, you need some help girl! You need a lot of help! Unfortunately, many women are dealing with the same situation as most of us are becoming career-savvy and giving tough competition to our male counterparts. These days, contrary to popular belief, men are more under the pressure of being financially sound and stable. This has put marriage on a back burner and more people from our generation are getting married late. But, this has definitely not stopped the men to move in with their partners in a live-in household. It is only natural if you start asking yourself whether he is taking you for granted. You may wonder if he even intends to get married to you. Did you know? The age at which people have their first wedding is now 26 for females and 28 for males. About 20 years ago, the same statistics indicated a 2 year younger trend for both sexes. In fact, half of ever-married New Yorkers, married first at an age older than 30 years!

Chinese chopsticks

Introduction to Chopsticks

Chopsticks are a pair of sticks, usually made of wood, used for eating Asian food. In Chinese, the old word for "chopsticks,",and also in some varieties of modern Chinese such as Hokkien, was zhù (箸 Pinyin:zhù, Minnan: tī). However, using the word “zhù” became a taboo on ships because it sounded the same as another word meaning "to stop" (住). Consequently, it was replaced by a word of opposite meaning, kuài (fast, quick), which evolved into the current term, “kuàizi.” This gradually spread until it became the word for "chopsticks" in most varieties of modern Chinese. The character for this new meaning of "chopsticks" (筷) for kuài has the radical for bamboo added to the character meaning "fast" kuài (快). The English term, “chopsticks,” is supposedly derived from the Pidgin English spoken in British Chinese colonies. The Chinese term, “kuai-tzu,” or “quick ones” became chop (Pidgin for “quick”) sticks.

Chopsticks come in many different forms. Bamboo tends to be the most popular material from which to make them. There is plenty of bamboo in Asia, and it is easy to split and extremely resistant to heat. Other popular materials have included wood and bone, and chopsticks made of precious metals were not uncommon among the wealthy in ancient times. It was believed that silver chopsticks would turn black upon contact with poisoned food, although this has since been disproven by modern science.

5 Greatest Love Stories with Happy Ending

Love at first sight or love everlasting: a feeling unknown or just unexpected… Everyone admits that love is wonderful and necessary, yet no one agrees on just what it is. Some say it is a feeling, and some say it is an impression. But I say love is, if true, the essence of our soul and subsistence. Like the famous canto… a game of beginning and a story without end… where each maid is a heroine and each man a friend…
Let me share with you some of the most famous true love stories in which the lovers never parted… but their love lasted for as long as they lived…

Napoleon and Josephine


The story of Napoleon and Josephine is one of the greatest love stories in history. They remained deeply in love with each other throughout their married life. There are various accounts of how Napoleon and Josephine had first met. But what is known as a fact is that Napoleon had fallen head over heels in love with her the moment he had seen her the first time. And his passionate love is reflected in his love letters which still exist, and very famous. It was most probably in one of the social gatherings that they had met each other. Napoleon was a national hero, had an up-and-coming career and was in great demand all over Paris. Josephine, on the other hand was previously married, had two half-grown kids and was 6 years older than Napoleon. It was a bit difficult to understand why Josephine was interested in Napoleon at all, because compared to Josephine Napoleon was penniless and lacking in social graces. But like they say, love if pure, binds no folds. And Napoleon too was most charming and generous. Regardless of all the discouragement of his family, he not only married Josephine but did everything for her kids. He generally did whatever he could to make them feel comfortable with him. As the legend continued, the love between Josephine and Napoleon only ever inflated with time.

Are In Love With Your Best Friend?

If you are in love with your best friend and if you express your feelings to him, there are two outcomes that you will most likely face. First is that he will say that he feels the same (I know this is what you want to hear) and the second is that he might tell you that he does not have the same feelings for you. If by any chance latter comes true, there is a possibility that you might lose the friendship that you share with him. Are you prepared to take this kind of risk?
The ideal relationship advice to deal with such a situation will be to give yourself some time to ponder over the whole situation before making any move. Take your time in knowing whether your feelings are really genuine or is it just an infatuation. If you are confused and thinking “Am i in love with my best friend?” then here are some signs of being in love which will help you to figure out your feelings.
Am I in Love with My Best Friend: Signs of Love
The first thing that all people who are confused and thinking,”how do i know if i am in love with my best friend?” should do is to look within and try to find out whether it is just a physical attraction that they have developed for their friend or is it something deeper? If you genuinely care for your best friend’s well-being, you go out of the way to make him/her happy and if you feel that you would do anything to see a smile on their face, then most likely you are in love.
When you are in love with someone, the other person is always on your mind. Thinking about the moments you two spend together invariably brings a smile to your face. You remember each and every of his likes, dislikes, whims, etc. When you go out, you make plans keeping the other person’s interests in mind. If you feel you are doing the same, it is one of the signs that you are falling for your best friend.
It is often seen that people who are in love want to look their best, especially when they meet the person they are falling for. Have you recently felt a change in the way you dress? Do you spend hours in front of the mirror or a beauty parlor to look beautiful and well-groomed? If you do, you could be on the threshold of falling in love.
When we are in love with somebody, we trust that person completely. In our heart we know that no matter what, this person will not break our trust at any point of time. Do you trust your best friend? Is he the first person that you go to whenever you receive a good news to share your joy? Or even your sorrows? If the answers to all these questions are in the affirmation, it means you trust your best friend more than anybody.
If after comparing your feelings with these signs of falling in love, you still are confused and wondering,”Am I in love”, then here is a quiz to help you clear your thoughts.
Am I in Love with My Best Friend: Quiz
  • Do you feel comfortable in your best friend’s company? Do you feel you can share anything under the sun with him?
  • Do you especially dress up just to appear physically attractive to your best friend?
  • Have you lately become slightly jealous and possessive about him/her?
  • Is your best friend on your mind all the time?
  • Do you listen and pay attention to each and everything your best friend says?
  • Do you trust him/her?
  • Do you find yourself totally un-attracted to even the hottest girl/guy around?
  • Do you feel that your day is incomplete if you do not talk/meet your best friend?
  • If your best friend asks you out on a date would you say yes?
If you answered in affirmative to most of these questions, then for sure you are in love with your best friend.
I hope now some of your confusion regarding “Am I in love with my best friend?” is dispelled. If you are genuinely in love with your best friend, it makes sense that you go ahead and tell him about your feelings. For a relationship to form, the feelings have to be mutual and you will never know your best friend’s feelings unless and until you talk to him. So, even if it’s a risk, its worth taking! Best of luck!

How to Decide That It’s the Right Time to Break Up

Breaking up with your boyfriend will be difficult and emotionally draining. It will be even more difficult if he is a long term boyfriend as your emotions are more entangled and you have developed a certain comfort with him. He may not be all that you wanted but you have somewhat adjusted to him and are now somewhat at peace with his faults. But the nagging problem is that you aren’t quite settled and at ease in your heart and mind with your long term boyfriend. You are unsure whether to break up with him or to continue in your unsettling but comfortable relationship. So how do you decide that it’s the right time to break up with your long term boyfriend?
You are unhappy most of the time. If this is how you feel most of the time when you are with him then the time is ripe for you to break up with your long term boyfriend. If the joyful times are few and far between then it is time. If the disappoints from who he has become are more than the great things that you see in him, then it is time. If most of your happy times are in the past then the time to leave has come.
Talking with him is like talking to a brick wall. Whenever you talk to him about your concerns and interest he just doesn’t seem to hear you. Now all men have to learn to really listen to their woman but if he makes no effort and you feel alone and alienated from him then it is time to seek help or to break up with him. If he doesn’t think it’s a problem and will not seek help with you then it is time to break up otherwise your loneliness in the relationship will cripple you emotionally.
He makes you feel less than you know you are. A boyfriend who makes you feel badly about who you are is one that you should dump today! This is usually a boyfriend who does not respect you or who you are as a person or one who just doesn’t know how to support you without taking over your life. Whatever his reasons for behaving like this you need to stand up for yourself and put a stop to it or break up with him.
Your core values are divergent. We often think that love conquers all but if your core values are on opposite sides of the spectrum then your relationship is in trouble; depending on how critical and divergent your two view points are. If the issues are critical and divergent where no compromise is possible then it is time to break up. If one of you gives in where the issues are critical and divergent then seeds of resentment and frustration are sown in their heart with a harvest of that is in your future.
He stifles your personal growth. A boyfriend who not only doesn’t support your personal growth but may even be your greatest road block to self development needs to be kicked to the curb. This is a man who seems threatened by you and what he sees as your successes. A man who sabotages you is not on your side and you need to break up with him.
There is no perfect boyfriend so you must weigh all the evidence before you conclude that it is time to break up with your long term boyfriend. You do know in your heart of hearts (intuition) when he is just not right for you…don’t you? Don’t let the fear of the unknown or of never finding another good man keep you in a relationship where you sell yourself short.

European Culture on the Breakfast Menu

Whenever I travel in Europe and receive a breakfast invitation, my acceptance is a must. Not because I am particularly keen about breakfast. On the contrary, I am someone who can easily get along with simply a breakfast tea.
But the breakfast culture in Europe is worth studying. Let us quickly turn away from the southern European bar breakfasts.

Aliens sighting in Alaska and East Arabia

 
The other night I went to cinema and saw the 2009 production by the young director Olatunde Osunsanmi, entitled The Fourth Kind.
The storyline brings us to the city of Nome in
Alaska,

where the protagonist Dr Abigail Tyler researches cases of alien abduction, until she becomes a victim herself.

Based on apparently authentic documentary material, the movie shifts between different levels of perception and leaves the viewer bewildered as to whose version of the story to believe. While the movie has to be rated as of shifting quality, the aspect that caught my attention was the startling similarity of the story with East Arabian folk tales I had come across during my own research.
The only difference was that the origins of the supernatural phenomena related in the Arabian tales were jinn – to some English readers better known as genies – and not aliens.
