There are plenty of ways that you can earn money from gambling. Whether you prefer to back horses, place bets on the outcomes of political elections or like to make wagers at a casino, there is the possibility that you can win – and win big. The thing with gambling is that you risk your capital whenever you place a bet so it is not as reliable a way to earn money as holding down a job, for example. Of course, you can gamble at home these days thanks to the services of online casinos in Canada and elsewhere. [Read more…]
Artificial intelligence (AI) is now used in many walks of life. The cost of both the implementation and application of AI is steadily falling. Accordingly, AI is becoming more accessible for smaller companies and even start-up enterprises. Therefore, it only takes the imagination of programmers to deploy it into new areas of human interactions.
For example, there are several areas in a casino where AI benefits businesspeople. AI can process the data of an entire client base within a few seconds, for instance. As a result, AI can easily predict the behaviour of certain gamblers, such as informing you of which player(s) might abandon their current game. What is most impressive is that AI will identify these players and offer them such bonuses, thereby encouraging them to stay. [Read more…]
Despite our increasing awareness of how our lifestyle and waste-disposal habits impact upon the environment, there is still a multitude of common household products which pose a threat to the ecology of our planet. Here is a roundup of some commonly used items whose green credentials are now very much under the spotlight. [Read more…]
Travelling, whether around your home country or to far-flung destinations, is fantastic. It can also be eye wateringly, budget breaking, bank account emptying expensive.
It doesn’t have to be that way (expensive, I mean. It should always be fantastic), and even the stingiest, cheapest cheapskates deserve a holiday. So, what do you do? Try your best to enjoy a staycation? That’s not a real holiday now is it? Staycations are not an option, but travelling cheaply is. Here are the cheapest possible ways to do it. [Read more…]
Everyone knows it’s just not possible to say what humans will look like in another million years. However, humans living at that time will likely to have had to cope with problems every bit as taxing as the issues faced by our own forbears a million years ago. Back then, Homo sapiens didn’t exist as a separate race. So around a million years ago, there was probably a handful of competing proto-human species roaming the earth. These included Homo heidelbergensis, which shared some characteristics with both Homo erectus and more modern humans, yet seemed to have a rather more primitive anatomy than that of their later Neanderthal cousins.

Anyone who has seen the classic science fiction film 2001: A Space Odyssey is aware of a few things. The first is that 2001, despite being some time ago now, did not offer the vast majority of the things promised in the movie. Well, Skype covers the video calls shown in the movie, but we’re a long way off from giant rotating space stations.
The second thing fans of the film will notice is that killer artificial intelligence software has not been achieved, which is enough to ruin anyone’s day. You would think by now we had at least managed to create an AI capable of pulling off a murder or two. After all, this is hardly the future we had all been dreaming of when the most we have is mildly sassy phone assistant software. [Read more…]
When the vehicle ferrying Meghan, Duchess of Sussex, stopped outside the Royal Academy of Arts for her first solo event since marrying Prince Harry, an assistant opened the door for her. Markle got out and, before the assistant could swoop into action once more, shut the door behind her – and the Internet went nuts.
Some users saw the simple action as the duchess’ down-to-earth approach to life coming through, while others seemed to think it was a serious breach of etiquette. According to etiquette aficionado William Hanson, it was not. Rather than royals thinking themselves too good to open their own car doors, it was simply a matter of security. [Read more…]
You may not realise it, but colour plays a major part in your life. Every day you are influenced by colour, and often so subtle is the effect that you probably don’t even register it is happening. Stop signs are red, as well as the rear lights of vehicles. Therefore the way you drive your car is directly linked to the colour red. It could be said, therefore, that the colour red determines your life, given that it so drastically influences how you drive your car. [Read more…]
Social media addiction has been an increasingly debated topic of late. The very nature of social media applications, it has been said, is designed to be addictive. In what is referred to as a positive feedback loop, users are encouraged to spend as much time receiving and sharing posts as possible, for nothing more than the input of being rewarded with “likes.” [Read more…]
Canadian rapper Drake has had a good year so far, and is now being referred to as the most popular entertainer in the world. This is no small accomplishment, and alone would be reason for the 31-year-old musician, songwriter and entrepreneur to be proud. But in releasing his latest album, titled Scorpion, Drake has managed to make world history in a truly profound way. [Read more…]
