Web Design and Its Evolution

Web design has come a long way since August 1991 when the first ever website was launched. Tim Berners-Lee published a text-based site on behalf of the European Organization for Nuclear Research. The site itself was informative only and in no way interactive. Primitive in its looks, content included hyperlinks and was actually removed from the web in 1993. It was later decided to reinstate the website due to the importance of human and technological development. Q: What's one of the biggest differences between websites of the early 1990's and those of today? A: The first website ever created was solely for informative purposes whereas today, owners can offer a wealth of information, sell products and services, provide platforms for social interaction and much more. All of this is carried out in a visually appealing manner. Q: Can we talk about speed? A: Absolutely! You may have been around long enough to remember the days of dialup internet. If not, its highly recommended you look into it. Those used to lighting fast fiber broadband will almost certainly be enlightened to learn the process of dialup and how this would mean the telephone (land line) could not be used and was somewhat slow and at times intermittent. Taking this into consideration, websites of 90's were based primarily around text. Design layouts were a concept of the future along with imagery,...

How To Boost Your Rats Immunity

As winter approaches, it’s important to turn our attention to how we can boost our rat’s immunity against infection and give them the best defence possible during what is often a vulnerable time for rats, especially the elderly. High humidity, coupled with the cold can create the conditions that affect the respiratory system of a vulnerable rat. This is due to the increase in the water element which can aggravate mucus conditions or those susceptible to them. It’s important to be aware that there is a greater need to balance the water element within the bodily system at this time, so that we can increase the body’s ability to cope with damp and coolness. In Ayurveda (an ancient Indian healing system based on maintaining balanced health), there is more aggravation of the water element during the winter months. There is a tendency for more mucus conditions to flare up. Therefore, it’s important to try and offset this tendency by creating ‘internal’ balance within the body whilst adjusting ‘external’ conditions to lower stress. We can do this by addressing the environmental factors that may aggravate a watery condition e.g. by using a dehumidifier, also avoiding sweet wet food, reducing stress and incorporating various immune building strategies (as suggested below). Some rats are more affected by an aggravation of the water element than others, especially those who have already been having...

Getting the Best Out of Landscaping Services

Most people know only about landscaping as a way to maintain their gardens like pruning some plants or taking out the weeds. But landscaping services can do so much more for a garden whether it's big or small. Landscaping is changing the appearance of a lawn or backyard. It can involve trimming the grass or pruning some branches of a tree but it can also entail building or adding on some structures to give a lawn or backyard more appealing. Landscapes can even add or remove some of the soil just to alter the feature of the whole layout of the land. There are so many ways for landscaping to improve the appearance of your backyard. Your backyard does not even have to be intense for it to have potential. Some people equate landscaping with mansions or large fields but even the most modest lawns can turn out to be wondrous landscapes if the design is right. With the right amount of budget and a little creativity you could have a beautiful lawn or backyard in no time. Before you start looking for an expert in landscaping, try visualizing first how you want your backyard to look like. Better yet, look at photos of beautiful landscapes online or in magazines so that you could have a more concrete idea on the appearance of your lawn. When you're ready to...

The One

To our modern eyes the concept of the One or Oneness is mystical and Eastern in origin and there will be found truth in this. But we can perceive this reality with our Western eyes. Try to imagine yourself as a grain of sand. You are nestled upon the beach, one of trillions and trillions of grains of sand. You are quite separate and yet also part of and similar to the whole. All you see around you are other grains of sand. But whilst you concentrate on those, you neglect to see the sky from which falls the rays of the sun that contain life and the drops of rain that feed the ocean that formed you. You do not see that those other grains of sand were formed in the same way as you and that they too come from the same rocks; you are all the same. And one day, in millions of years you will form as ancient sedimentary rock one again. In this way, we are all formed by the same methods, with the same energy. We all eat the same produce of the earth and drink the same water. We shall all return to this same earth from where we came and the earth shall one day return to the universe from when it came. Ultimately it will all 'roll-up' in the Big...
