Neringa - Curonian spit is a very precious place for all Lithuanians. Most of us explore nature of the national park and enjoy sun and sea, however there is also a special architectural heritage to be appreciated. From cute wooden houses to experimental modernist buildings with this architectural guide to could have a lot of fun this summer. #discoverbooks

It is the first generation (or second at best) of wealth creation in Lithuania and the ones who got their fortune are still unwilling to loose control or hire someone to manage their assets. On the other hand, those who offer wealth management services more often than not are learning by doing.

The new English is International English. On the streets of London, in cities towns and villages all over the world, in bedrooms and in the glowing hands of waiting travellers a new language is being created, crafted by market forces, forged in freedom. No central committees approve our words. No government agencies will break our knuckles over punctuation or style. We are the Borg. We are anonymous. We are also named beneath pictures of ourselves sharing the most intimate facets of our personalities and lives. In the future there will not be a person on the planet who doesn't know a little International English. Hark the psychologists refrain : "how does that make you feel?" It's language Jim, but not, as we know it. This tumbling snowball of globalisation is accumulating the best concepts from every culture in the world. It is unstoppable. Yes you can feel saudade 🇵🇹 about this nouveau 🇫🇷 patois 🇯🇲 with its delicatessen 🇩🇪 of choices. We can debate if it's a glitch 🇮🇱 of history that this macho guerilla 🇪🇸 linguistic tsunami 🇯🇵 of new words and nuanced concepts is too gung-ho 🇨🇳 in scouring 🇳🇱 other tongues being a parasite 🇬🇷. What price this new tower of Babel? The youth of the world are forging a new world swearing at each other online and off in Russian, Arabic, Polish etcerata etcetera. I think its amazing but also a little concerning. Will Int. English inevitably break other languages and cultures as the decades pass? What do you think? What price this process /progress? 🤔

Hello, dear qooriors! I am pleased to join this human-to-human learning community. I live in Arusha, Tanzania, and I organize wild safaris in my country. I will be sharing a few facts & insights from a wild & beautiful Tanzania. Did you know that the largest African land mammal elephant (Loxodonta Loxodonta) has a very good sense of smell, good memory, however poor eyesight? They spent 18 hours a day eating. The group is led by an oldest cow known as the matriarch. They live 60 years to 70 in captivity. The photo below is the one I recently took in Serengeti National Park.

#blacklivesmatter is a crucial movement in history. Even though it can be difficult to talk about topics regarding rasicm (even though it is something that people of color have been dealing with for centuries) we all HAVE TO do our best. We need to educate ourselves and teach others about the struggles and the cruelty. This is very important. .

Zebra grazing down the crater! Ngorongoro crater was formed when a giant volcano exploded & collapsed about 2.5 million years ago. The cone of the volcanic caldera collapsed inwards and formed today's famous Ngorongoro caldera. This is the la rgest unbroken & unfolded caldera in the world. With 610 m deep, Ngorongoro is the home to the big five animals (lion, leopard, buffalo, elephant & rhino) and different bird species. Giraffes are not found in the crater because there is no acacia (food) for them.

Kristina Dryža on How Myths Influence Our Lives?Speaker, Author and Archetypal Consultant14 days ago
While I can’t physically be in the US this weekend to present at the Fates and Graces Mythologium, I look forward to beaming in via Zoom to discuss “The Archetypal Necessity for Descending into Hades.” And OMG, the program is an absolute delight for mythologists:

That's why I like to be on Qoorio, it really brings you out of your sociable and professional bubble...never knew about the existence of professional mythologists🙂👌👍 thanks for sharing Kristina Dryža. Looks fascinating stuff ..🔱
Getting ready for exams DOES NOT have to be stressful! 📝 To all my fellow schoolers, having a schedule and some sort of a plan is definitely a way to go. For example, I have created a personal studying calendar and for the first time I actually made it myself - pen on paper. 📝 Sometimes we can get lost in all the different apps and (ironically) get ourselves in a chaotic mindset. Having written everything down on paper, now i know what tasks I have to do and what I need to learn or revise. 📝 Sometimes we just have to go back to the basics :)

I can be a master of procrastination. Even if going though my senior year of high-school, I managed to work at Qoorio and move out of my parents' home, pushing important tasks away for one episode of Suits still happens from time to time. 🌳 Forest is one of million apps that I've tried to overcome this procrastination devil and I think it is of the most effective ones for me. Your goal is to set up a time that you will be completely focused and let your trees grow. After some time you can analyse your results, take pride in your forest and know exactly where all your precious time went. 🌳 No, Forest in not sponsoring this post. Jokes aside, highly recommend this free, yet amazing tool!
Sometimes even the closest relationships require a break... Just kidding, today's insight is not going to be super serious. Let's talk about followers. 📳 Yesterday I decided it was time to rethink who I was following and what impact instagram was doing to my life. As I said, nothing dramatic, just essential to a conscious content consumption! 📳 Usually I would look at who I was following from time to time and make minimal changes. But this time I knew I had to start from scratch - and I did. By unfollowing every single one of the accounts that I've been a follower of (roughly around 850 people). 📳 The only thing I asked my friends is to not take it personally. I am sure that I will follow a looot of people back after exams and when I have a better understanding of how and for what to use social media. But.. why did I do it in the first place? 📳 There was a time where I followed more than 1k, and the content flow was crazy. Now I got used to seeing 2-3% of the people I follow and that is weird. - I am still a believer that social media in itself is not bad. Usually it's our decisions that create the consequences. For example, if you feel self-conscious about your body and blame it on seeing instagram models in your feed all the time, does it make sense to even follow them? 📳 All I want is to surround myself with curious, intelligent, creative individuals and follow informative and trustworthy media accounts and projects. 📳 And a goal like this sometimes requires starting from zero.

Paulina Sofija NalivaikaitėCopywriter
Although not so dramatically, I also did a massive unfollow on Instagram half a year ago. I realised that I shouldn't follow people who induce my (subconscious) jealousy for them living 'better' or 'more interesting' lives while we know a lot of fake lies there. If content makes me feel jealous, insufficient, not 'beautiful' or 'rich' (or whatever) enough, it doesn't deserve a place in my feed. I'm still following ~45 accounts. That's my family, my friends, a few humor accounts, and quite a lot of animal pages, as they bring a smile on my face. 🐈🐨🦉

Cheetah is one of the cat families that are found in Serengeti, Tanzania. These are the fastest cats with a speed of 112 kph and the most successful hunters. Unlike other cats, they hunt almost entirely in the day time. Males are bigger than females and they are ones who defend the territories. Females reach reproductive age between 20-24 months, and they give birth about every 18 months with a high mortality rate. Cubs stay with their mother until the age of 16 to 18 months, at which point this family unit breaks up while the mother goes off to find a mate. Below is the picture I recently took. These are four males after they moved out from their families. What wild animals have you seen?

Andrius Baranauskas on Tech in Southeast AsiaProduct Executive Bringing Best Experiences Globallyabout 2 months ago
Earlier this week I had a chance to do my first podcast appearance… Great experience! As part of the prep for it, I asked myself – what were the key differences I observed as a Product Leader in Singapore/SEA compared to Europe? (1) Drive to create and hunger to achieve is enormous in the region. I’ve only seen anything similar in the US so far. Europe is… complacent in many ways. Why create something new if what we have is good enough? (2) Product Management is perceived very differently. Most of the product managers I interviewed early were really project managers – often getting things done that were thought through somewhere else by someone else. Product managers often have a business counterpart – in Europe, it is PM’s job in most cases. Situation changed and evolved over time though! (3) Excellence in craft is really high, especially among the technical people. Data Scientists, Engineers and others are often really really good in SEA. I’d dare to say significantly better. The flip side of that is they often lack interest in the customer and the business. Which makes the teamwork hard, especially if you try the Spotify model. (4) Importance of loyalty cannot be underestimated. At work, this often trumps ideas and work done. People you hire are often afraid to say something that falls out of line, even if they know better than you. Same applies to some of the VCs too in their relationships with the founders. (5) Differences between markets in SEA and Asia in general are much bigger than in Europe or West in general. However, the very average basic customer behaviour is strangely similar, be it in Europe or SEA. (6) Tech workforce is significantly more diverse in the aspects of nationality and gender. First 8 members of my product team at Carousell were all from 8 different countries! Yet somehow different nationalities form their own bubbles, which makes having a singular strong culture in the company much harder. (7) People strive for structure: career ladders, processes, tooling standardisation. A need for this manifests much earlier in the startup’s journey. In Europe, freedom is sought after a lot more. Exception here that I observed is Taiwan – levels of creativity there surprised me! Want to learn more about this dynamic region? Schedule a Zoom call with me!

Imagine a world where your ability to get a job or seek an education depends on a blood test. Immunity passports might be big a threat for our freedom. Is the world going backwards? What’s your opinion? ‘It has happened before. For most of the nineteenth century, immunity to yellow fever divided people in New Orleans, Louisiana, between the ‘acclimated’ who had survived yellow fever and the ‘unacclimated’, who had not had the disease. Lack of immunity dictated whom people could marry, where they could work, and, for those forced into slavery, how much they were worth. Presumed immunity concentrated political and economic power in the hands of the wealthy elite, and was weaponized to justify white supremacy.’
Ten reasons why immunity passports are a bad idea

There wasn’t anything that could have prepared me for my first full-blown anxiety attack. I felt like I was frozen in place but I couldn’t stop shaking. It was like I had tunnel vision; all I could focus on was the trigger and how overwhelming it felt, how I didn’t think I could overcome it, how it felt like no matter how hard I tried - I would never be able to do something about it. Was I not good enough? Did I do something to deserve this? My thoughts would come at a million miles a minute but also fixate on the same topic again, and again. It kept happening like a nightmare I couldn’t wake up from. I couldn’t escape it. I was so scared. What if I never fixed it? What if this kept happening? What if this was it, this was the end of it? Anxiety doesn’t always feel the same for everyone, but one thing is: it’s your mind and body being in a state of emergency when danger isn’t. Learning to recognise the signs of a panic or anxiety attack is key to learning how to self-soothe and get it under control again.

If you ever feel bad for burning out... don’t. It’s normal to be burnt out if you’ve been working hard on things, or even if you’ve been doing the same thing for so long. You might have all the luxuries in the world and you might still burn out. It’s okay, breathe - you’re allowed to have a moment where you’re not okay.
