Couple |Quarantine Together | Work Together | Stay Together

To all the couples out there who have to learn how to work from home together, we need to remember to make time for ourselves and think, think deeply!


Schedule a daily block of 15 minutes downtime to refresh your brain or pause for thought. It can be anything from meditation to a nap, a walk, or simply turning off notifications for thought.


Some quick notes to follow in the current situation:

1. Develop Routine Together:

When you work from home, building a routine together is really important. Follow the same routine when working from home as you do while going to the office. for eg: waking up, taking shower, getting dressed, having breakfast and get into work.

2. Communicate Each Other:

Like many of you, this is a moving train everyday, sometimes hourly and by the minute. Communication is the key with your spouse. Keep stopping each 30 minutes to say “can we have a quick meeting?” to chat about what the next part of the day looks like.

Over communicating seems to be really important right now. Sit down and ask if they are free to chat before just walking into the room to start a conversation, say what went well today, what do we need to do differently tomorrow, how can I shine for you tomorrow. Practice asking directly for what you need. 

3. Establish Expectations & Boundaries:

To avoid conflict, couples should work on establishing boundaries and expectations. Who is going to start with work first? How will you know when not to disrupt each other? What are the important deadlines you are currently working on? Couples need to set boundaries, and set hours of the day for a no-disturbance zone from this logging time to log out time”.

Have a clear conversation about what their needs and expectations are when you work from home. Having an unmet expectation doesn’t mean you were wrong, it just means that it’s time to check in with your partner.

4. Spend Time With Kids:

Since they establish a sense of connection and safety for parents and children, Security — is a huge piece of what you can give your kids right now. Make kids happy by helping them in craft making or funny game activities.

5. Create Memory:


Starting at 6pm, both of you stop working and spend time for watching family-friendly movies together or Play a board game together and take a turn having dinner together. As you stay together now, use this time to build a connection and create memories.

Be GRATEFUL you have a job that allows you both to work from home.

Prayers and thoughts for any of you who are not able to work from home at this time…stay strong and be positive💪.

The main upgrade on the P40 devices is the camera which takes the phone to another level.

Key specifications

Design

Its resolution is in between full HD and quad HD, which is around 2640×1200. The phone supports 90 Hertz refresh rate which is pretty smooth but not the best like 120 Hertz as in Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra. It also has the in-display fingerprint sensor with 30% larger sensing area and punch holes on the screen supports facial unlock, both sensors work really fast.

Camera

Huawei has always paid attention to their cameras and this device camera takes the best photos ever on a phone because it is built with the world’s biggest smartphone camera sensor. As we have seen over the last few years that cameras are becoming the biggest differentiating factor between flagships so they are slowly invading more and more back area of our phones.

This device has the quad-camera system with 50 MP main camera, absolutely massive  1/1.28 inch sensor, 40 MP ultra-wide camera and a 12 MP 5x optical periscope camera. Huawei said this camera can capture the kind of details where each picture can tell multiple stories at once. You can crop any part of a shot and still see enough details that all stand in its own right. Around the front, you get a 32 MP selfie camera which also works best in night mode and it captures 4k video.

Battery and Storage

It looks like wireless charging will be one of the frontiers to make a major jump in 2020 and Huawei is aiming to be in the lead. The battery in this phone is 4200 mAp which is not the biggest like Galaxy S20 Ultra but it supports the wireless charging and wired charging of massive 40W of power which is the best in the industry right now.

P40 Pro is pretty generous with 256 GB of storage and 8 GB RAM onboard and it is expandable using Huawei nano memory cards.

Performance

The device is powered by premium hardware including the latest Kirin 990 5G chipset and it uses updated software based on Android 10 which also supports 5G and everything works very fast. We also get IP68 water and dust protection and you can expect awesome gaming performance.

In Conclusion, despite having the class-leading specs and outstanding features, one can hold back buying this phone due to lack of Google services with no Google Play, YouTube, Gmail, etc. installed on the phone. But you can use the clone app to copy apps from your old phone which will transfer “most” but “not all” of your apps to your P40 device. Let us know your thoughts down in the comment below.

Samsung Galaxy Z flip review

Smartphones basically looked identical in the past few years. A traditional big glass slab on the front with a couple of hardware buttons for power and volume. Samsung has been leading the way with bringing the top-quality folding displays in the market. The Samsung galaxy Z flip is their take on how a modern touch screen smartphone can be combined into exemplary foldable form.

Z Flip Key Specifications

Samsung Galaxy Z flip specification

Design

Samsung Galaxy Z flip is Samsung’s second-generation foldable smartphone. Samsung says, this is the statement smartphone that demands attention and it is for people who want to “stand out”.

Samsung Galaxy Z Flip
Samsung Galaxy Z Flip

I would have to agree the ability to fold the phone in half is absolutely magnificent. We can now have a full-sized phone and compact design that takes up half the space and you can make it sit like a laptop, WOW!! It has been tested for 200,000 folds for every day for the next 3 years.

Samsung Galaxy Z Flip

The tiny front display shows the time, date, battery and also enables you to receive calls, which is very handy. But you will need to open the phone to truly see what’s going on inside.

The overall design of the phone is curvy and it looks wacky. On the upper right half corner is the volume rocker and power key which doubles as a fingerprint scanner. There is a nano sim slot on the upper left of the phone. The bottom half of the phone has a speaker and USB-C port with no headphone jack. You might find it a little difficult to open the phone with one hand without risking $1389 phone.

Display

Samsung Galaxy Z Flip Dispaly

The display is not as bright as other galaxy phones but it did reach a respectable 596 nits in bright lighting conditions. You can definitely feel the crease when you run the fingers on the screen but it not very noticeable while actually using the phone. The display is significantly prone to scratches compared to actual glass but there is no gap between the screens when you fold it up.

Samsung Galaxy Z Flip Display

Z Flip comes with good but not outstanding “HD plus 60 hertz AMOLED” screen but it’s large enough to properly enjoy the content.

Camera

The Z Flip’s camera set up is not as ambitious as what we have seen on the latest Galaxy flagships. It has essentially the Galaxy S10 camera with actually the omission of the telephoto lens. The camera doesn’t support 8k video recording and 108 MP photos as in Galaxy S20.

Samsung Galaxy Z flip camera

The microdisplay on the phone can be used to take photos. It has got the wrong aspect ratio to fit the whole image in but it’s enough to be able to roughly click a picture. You can take the selfies using the high-quality rear camera of the phone which is a big plus point.

Battery and Storage

Fold the Phone for wireless charging

Z Flip is limited to 256 GB of non-expandable storage and 8 GB of RAM and just 3300 mAp battery capacity which is fine but not great for $1389 phone standards. However, it features wireless charging with 15-watt fast charging and the battery is still good for one long day of use.

Performance

Z Flip uses last year’s Snapdragon 855+ chipset which is fast but it is around 15% behind Galaxy S20 phone. It doesn’t support 5G which might turn out to be a deal-breaker for people who don’t want to change the phone for another 2 years

In conclusion, Samsung’s most futuristic-looking smartphone is actually a generation behind in terms of capability. Slightly less good at every everything (design being the exception) and still on expensive side. This phone isn’t a fit for techie’s because of its specs and it isn’t a choice for casual users because of its price but it’s definitely the best foldable smartphone in the market and I think that’s what matter’s for the company.

Let us know if you would consider dropping $1389 for a WOW factor Z Flip phone.

How To Lose Weight While Being Quarantined At Home

Being quarantined at home is a golden chance to keep a track of your habits. Though being quarantined is the perfect way to protect yourself from contracting the Corona Virus but being at home the whole day often leads to unhealthy eating which further leads to weight gain especially when there is no activity.

Corona Virus Quarantine

Staying at home also helps you take out time to stick to a workout routine. If you are trying to lose weight for a long time, then make the best use of this time.

Do you too have got the permission to ‘work from home’?

If such is the case, then you must have been quarantined at home. Keep your diet and weight on track, while being quarantined at home.

Here are a few tips to follow:

1. Add Protein to Your Diet:


When it comes to weight loss, protein is the king of nutrients. Make sure you add enough protein to keep you fuller. With a little planning, eating under quarantine can still be tasty and nutritious. Foods that are naturally nutrient-rich include fruits and vegetables. Lean meats, fish, whole grains, dairy, legumes, nuts, and seeds also are high in nutrients.

2. Stock Up Healthy Snacks:

It’s very easy to fall for unhealthy snacks when you are home & getting bored or watching Netflix. Be aware when your hands are reaching for such foods or else you’ll gain weight.

3. Limit Your Intake of Added Sugar:


Please make your tea count. Make sure you do not use more than 2 teaspoon of sugar in whole day.

4. Drink More Water:


There is actually truth to the claim that drinking water can help with weight loss. Drinking a lot of water can be a useful tool in a dieter’s arsenal when weight loss is a goal. Drinking 8-10 glasses of water a day can be difficult, but with determination, you will be on the right track of using water to your weight loss advantage. Essential in these in order to increase your immunity & fight with virus.

5. Avoid liquid calories & white refined carbs:

Cooked Foods

Liquid calories come from beverages like sugary soft drinks, fruit juices, chocolate milk, energy drinks & refined carbs comes from white bread, pasta, pastry, sweets, breakfast cereals.

6. Get enough sleep & reduce stress:

I know it’s difficult enough for everyone of us to stay calm in such situation. But getting panic & overthinking won’t help either. Make sure you get 7-8 hours of peaceful sleep & meditate to reduce stress.

7. Stay active even if you are at home:

The gym might be closed, but there is, a easy way you can stay on track with your weight loss goals. Best home exercise is skipping. Do one thing but be consistent. For me skipping works the best.

Since the whole world is on hold & fighting corona virus, lets not sit idle! Time to Work on your body , mind & be your better version. Make the best of this time!!

The most expensive food(delicacy) in the world

If someone asks you to name the most expensive foods in the world, you might think of saffron, oyster or ice cream topped with 24k gold flakes. But there is a delicacy which will wipe your bank account in no time. 1 , 2 & 3. It’s Caviar.

Caviar

Caviar is the food that’s totally associated with pure luxury. Caviar is the dark slimy unfertilized roe (eggs) of wild beluga sturgeon fish in Caspian sea, which is certified food of choice for the rich and famous. And their single ounce can cost hundreds or even thousands of dollars. The majority of the world population have never even tried Caviar.

Sturgeon fish
Beluga Sturgeon fish (Credits: Wikipedia)

There are about 10 species of sturgeon including Beluga sturgeon, which produces the most expensive Caviar in the world. These sturgeon measures 6- 20 feet long and weighing up to 60 KG.

How expensive is Caviar

The Caspian Sea, Russian Beluga Caviar can cost up to $55 – $350 per ounce and $35,000 per KG. Almas white beluga cost about $25,000 per KG. Costs can vary by numerous digits depending Grade you are buying and who you’re buying from.

Caviar

According to the Guinness World Records, the most expensive caviar in the world comes from the Iranian Beluga, sometimes referred to as Black Gold. A single ounce costs $17,000.

Why is Caviar so expensive

Sturgeon fish
  • It is in relatively scarce supply and only a small population of sturgeon produces it. Sturgeon takes between 8 – 20 years to produce eggs which is a lot of time to wait around, continually feeding a fish. It is obtained from a slow-growing and slow reproducing fish.
  • Beluga sturgeon are considered an endangered species and is only produced in a few places on earth, so there are laws in various places forbidding its export or import.

How does Caviar taste like?

  • Caviar has a unique taste and special texture as you eat it. It’s very decadent, incredibly nutty and extremely creamy. The eggs pop gently in your mouth bursting with flavors. The individual pearls exploding in your mouth is absolutely delicious which leaves an extraordinary feel on your tongue.
  • It’s believed that fuller, rounder and lighter-colored eggs have the highest quality and best taste.

Caviar remains a benchmark of luxury and I think the magnificent Caviar is worth trying at least once in a lifetime.

Does this sanitizer kill coronavirus? Bath and Body works santizer review

Sanitizers have metamorphosized into an essential product in our daily life, courtesy coronavirus! Alcohol is the main ingredient is most sanitizers because Alcohol is effective at killing different types of microbes, including both viruses and bacteria.

At a concentration above 60 percent, Alcohol is effective at killing bacteris and viruses including coronavirus. That doesn’t mean higher the better, Note that a high amount of alcohol content might dry your skin very quickly causing it to be irritated. Broken skin can be more vulnerable to the virus.

Bath and body works sanitizers have 68 percent of alcohol content and it is enriched with shea extracts,vitamin E and aloe vera keeping your hands clean and soft.

Bath and Body works comes up with new scents every now and then. I love their mists and body washes. Few of my favourite scents are a thousand wishes, cherry blossom, wild blueberry and vanilla sugar.

Walking through the beautifully set variety of eye-catching self-care products, I would see these cute little sanitizers but had never tried them. Few days back, I was browsing through the net and came across these cuties and couldn’t resist my self from buying them. I ordered them right away, as I had to buy sanitizers anyways to deal with this pandemic.

I’M Really A mermaid“, “watermelon Lemonade“, “Cucumber Melon“, “ I like you a waffle Lot” and “pineapple Mango” were the ones I ordered.

Cucumber melon is a refreshing blend of crisp cucumber, watery honeydew, summer cantaloupe, sparkling grapefruit & sheer woods. It smells fruity with the initial note of melon and a light cucumber note afterwards. Gives you a very positive vibe. It’s my present favourite.

Watermelon Lemonade is a refreshing spritzer of watermelon, frozen lemon & poppies. It has a tangy fruity smell with lemony freshness. Reminds me of summertime. It smells really good.

I like you A waffle lot is a blend of smoky vanilla, sugar and sparkling water. I can hardly smell vanilla. It does smell like a waffle somewhere but I am not very happy how it smells on my hand. It reminds me of fried oil/butter, which isn’t quite a lingering smell.

Pineapple Mango is an exotic blend of fresh Pineapple Juice, Mango, Vine-Ripened Raspberry with Essential Oils. The sweet pineapple smells amazing right off the bat, with mango twist and floral notes. It takes you to the rain forest with its fresh tropical tingling fragrance.

I’m Really a Mermaid is an oh-so-fresh sea-inspired blend of Sparkling Tangelo, Sheer Sands, White Orchid, Island Driftwood & Coconut Water. It smells cool, clean and fresh like you just got out of the shower. You can’t go wrong with this one.

These sanitizers are formulated with 68% of Alcohol (effective enough to kill coronavirus), will come handy when soap and water are not readily available. Wash your hands, use sanitizers, moisturize and stay safe. 👩
