Wealthy People Secrets


7 Secrets Wealthy People Know about Amassing and Maintaining a Fortune




Becoming wealthy enough to keep the wolf from your door doesn't mean an end to unwanted callers. For every newly minted billionaire, there are cautionary tales of the well-heeled undone by visits from the the tax man, the loan officer and Uncle Sam himself.

A fortune requires finesse. As well as a willingness to embrace financial exotica, trips to Bermuda and the drive to start your own business--as a survey of FORBES' knowledge of the world's wealthiest people reveals. Below are seven tricks, secrets and maneuvers regularly conducted by those with more than a shekel or two to accumulate and maintain their fortunes.

1. Start Your Own Business
Warren Buffett, chairman and CEO of Berkshire Hathaway (AP/Nati Harnik)Click over to FORBES' roll of billionaires, and you'll notice something if you dig into the biographies. Nearly all of the 1,426 billionaires  made their fortunes through an entrepreneurial spirit (or their fortunes come from a family member who created the business). Ten-figure sums aren't earned by rising through corporate ranks. They're made from creating the whole shebang from scratch. It will likely occur by happenstance, in the most unsuspecting of ways.Recall that the world's fourth richest man, the aforementioned Buffett, left the working world in 1955 with plans to retire. Shortly after, cajoled by a seven-person group of family and friends, twentysomething Buffett formed a partnership that laid the groundwork for his $53.5 billion fortune. He did so over a small dinner at the Omaha Club.

Samsung Galaxy S4 review


The everything phone for (almost) everyone


The good: The Samsung Galaxy S4 has Android 4.2.2, a fantastic camera, a powerful quad-core processor, and software solutions for just about every scenario -- including working as a TV/DVR remote. It's also comfortable in-hand and has NFC, a user-replaceable battery, and a microSD storage slot.

The bad: Its screen is dimmer than competitors', its plastic design gives it a cheaper look than rivals', and the Galaxy S4's power button turned on at undesired times. Not all camera modes work as promised, and a long list of software features can quickly overwhelm and confuse.
The bottom line: Its laundry list of features requires time and effort to truly master, but the Galaxy S4 is the top choice for anyone looking for a big-screen, do-everything smartphone.

Stricken boy’s dream comes true, thanks to clever photographer

Luka,12, has muscular dystrophy, but photos show him enjoying various activities
kid skateboard
Luka, 12, can’t ride a skateboard, go diving, shoot a basketball, stand on one hand while dancing, or even climb a set of stairs, but he can certainly picture himself doing these things, thanks to a clever photographer in Slovenia who made a dream come true.
Luka is stricken with muscular dystrophy and is unable to do the most basic tasks of everyday life, such as washing, dressing, and eating. From his wheelchair, he can only dream of playing sports or participating in other outdoor activities.
“The only thing he is physically capable of are tiny, yet extremely weak movements with his fingers,” award-winning amateur photographer Matej Peljhan, who is a psychologist at Luka’s school, told Huffington Post.
But Luka’s imagination is very much alive, and it prompted him to ask Peljhan if there was a way to put him into photos that show him doing different activities. Luka dreamed of seeing himself skateboarding, diving, playing basketball, and dancing.
So Peljhan put his own imagination to work.
After dismissing Photoshop as a possibility, Peljhan came up with the idea of posing Luka in various positions on a white sheet on the ground, creating scenes around him, and taking photos from above, photos that make it look as if Luka is in motion.
The result is a photo gallery called “The Little Prince.”
Clearly, Luka can now see himself riding a skateboard, diving, shooting a basketball, dancing, and climbing stairs.

Tips for Android APPS



How to manage and repair your Android apps

Tablets, smartphones, and PCs look different on the outside, but on the inside they rely on the same components: a processor, a GPU, memory, and a storage volume that holds an operating system, device drivers, and applications. Your phone and tablet have smaller screens and fewer peripherals than a typical PC has, but you still end up tapping and clicking your way through your data before pulling out a keyboard—albeit a virtual one—to get real work done.
And like a PC, a mobile device can become clogged with orphaned apps, boatloads of images or personal files, and other random bits of junk data. When that happens, the device may slow down, run out of storage space, or behave erratically. To deal with these problems on an Android tablet or phone, you have to know how to monitor and manage resources, move or delete data, and repair or remove obstreperous apps. Here’s how to handle those tasks.

Are wireless signals really dangerous


Are wireless signals really dangerous?
Using a headset is always a good idea

While we are surrounded by radio waves emitted by the Cosmos, we have only known about them since the 1890s, when wireless transmission was first demonstrated.
However, It wasn't until the late 1980s, with the advent of the first mobile phones, that radio transmitters first started entering the home, and even then, it took until the early-to-mid 1990s before mobile phones became commonplace. The mid-1990s also saw the first consumer use of wireless networks, and just as with phones, only took a few years to become mass-market products.
Look around a modern home and you will see that we are now surrounded by devices which emit radio waves, from our mobile phones to laptops and tablets, wireless routers, baby monitors, cordless phones, wireless games console controllers, some TV and Hi-Fi remotes (although most use Infra Red), wireless burglar alarm systems, Bluetooth headsets, keyboards and mice, wireless weather stations and more.

Business city on Ship


Will the World's Next Great City Be Sited on a 

Cruise Ship?



(Rendering via Houzz)
Curbed/Houzz - (Rendering via Houzz)

While the world has no shortage of pie-in-the-sky renderings for floating cities, a new proposal by Silicon Valley start-up Blueseed is perhaps the first to invokeentrepreneurial spirit and the American Dream in its soapbox pitch. Looking for a way to give foreign-born tech entrepreneurs access to the enterprising atmosphere of Silicon Valley, the founders of Blueseed are hoping to revamp an old cruise ship to create a community, of sorts, 12 nautical miles off California's coast in international waters, so international techies could live within commuting distance without a work visa. With a simple business tourism visa, denizens of the vessel could take a 30-minute boat ride to the mainland once or twice a week. Of course, creating an inhabitable community on water—one that people would live on six months or a year at a time—requires some interior design finagling, including incorporating lots of light and open space.

Christ of the Abyss


Christ of the Abyss is a submerged bronze statue of Jesus, of which the original is located in the Mediterranean Sea off San Fruttuoso between Camogli and Portofino on the Italian Riviera. It was placed in the water on 22 August 1954 at approximately 17 metres depth, and stands c. 2.5 metres tall. Various other casts of the statue are located in other places worldwide, both underwater and in churches and museums. The sculpture was created by Guido Galletti after an idea of Italian diver Duilio Marcante. The statue was placed near the spot where Dario Gonzatti, the first Italian to use SCUBA gear, died in 1947. It depicts Christ offering a blessing of peace, with his head and hands raised skyward.

Due to increasing amounts of corrosion and the growth of crustaceans, the statue was removed from the water and restored in 2003. A hand that had been detached by an anchor was also replaced. The statue was returned to the water with a new base on 17 July 2004. A second bronze sculpture cast from the same mould exists off the coast of St. George's, Grenada. This was a gift of the navy of Genoa for assistance in rescuing the crew of Italian vessel Bianca C destroyed by fire in the port of St. George's. The sculpture was placed under water on October 22, 1961.

Man Brilliantly Quits His Job to Pursue Dream Job With Resignation Letter Written on a Cake




If you're going to quit your job to pursue your dream job of making cakes for a living, then writing your resignation letter on a cake is definitely the right move.

Art with Acrylics and Epoxy Resin


Singapore-based artist Keng Lye meticulously produces three-dimensional works of art with acrylics and epoxy resin that lie somewhere between painting and sculpture. Using a technique originated by Riusuke Fukahori (see this video), Lye manages to produce the illusion of different animals swimming in water. The time-consuming process involves pouring resin into a bowl and then painting on top of it with acrylics, layer by layer.

Singapore-based artist Keng Lye meticulously produces three-dimensional works of art with acrylics and epoxy resin that lie somewhere between painting and sculpture. Using a technique originated by Riusuke Fukahori (see this video), Lye manages to produce the illusion of different animals swimming in water. The time-consuming process involves pouring resin into a bowl and then painting on top of it with acrylics, layer by layer.

Lye's labor-intensive approach requires the utmost patience and attention to detail, as each piece could consist of numerous layers. Altogether, the carefully plotted and executed layers present a rich sense of depth and life. After completion, the artist then photographs each piece as though it were just a still of real, living and breathing aquatic life in a bowl of water. Several requests have been made to purchase work from this series, known as Alive Without Breath, though it is currently unavailable. The artist hopes to sell some work, though he says it will probably be through an art gallery and admits, "[T]he problem with this kind of art is that it require[s] a great deal of time to complete, therefore they won't come cheap."

Best Muscle Cars


10 classic American muscle car



A muscle car might be defined as simply a high-performance two-door car made in the U.S., but to its fans it's much more than that. The muscle car is the basis for an entire subset of car fans, and movies such as "Bullitt" that have featured them prominently have helped create a lasting high-speed subculture. 


Karl Brauer, editor-in-chief of the online car review aggregator Total Car Score, is a self-described muscle car fanatic who characterizes these vehicles as his "primary passion." He provided CNBC.com with his list of 10 classic American muscle cars and some eye-popping estimates of their current market value.

"Vintage car collectors consider these must-have muscle cars, which is undoubtedly driving up the prices," Brauer said. He said that prices are likely to keep climbing, so if there's any time to buy a muscle car, it's now.

"The 1969-1970 Boss 429 Mustang, for instance, has skyrocketed in value over the past two years," he said. "If you're looking to buy you should act sooner rather than later. These vehicles will all likely cost more six to 12 months from now.

From the March 2007 issue: “This was a definite joint effort,” actress Demi Moore said of the 1950s canyonside house in Beverly Hills she renovated with her husband, actor Ashton Kutcher. For their renovation, the couple asked for help from Los Angeles interior designer Brad Dunning. “It’s their love nest,” said Dunning, “and they collaborated on it. They counterbalance each other very nicely. Both have tons of style and both wanted a stylish house. His strong input was functionality and comfort. Hers was style and design.” Pictured: The rear garden with a spacious deck and pool.
