We’ve all seen movies and heard horror stories about being buried alive. They sound pretty fantastic — and not fantastic like, “Oh awesome. That’s so cool.” But in the sense that it seems impossible and crazy.
But what if I told you it wasn’t so crazy?
Historically there was actually quite a bit of fear around being buried alive — maybe not overwhelming amongst all people in all cultures, but there was definitely some worry about this happening. Why? Because it did happen.
Medicine has come a long way, as we know, and still, there are medical mistakes and mysteries…
It goes without saying that we view the Holocaust as an atrocious event, and this article is in no way blaming Hitler’s drug-use for the atrocities he committed. But, it is interesting to see what state a man such as Adolf Hitler was really in.
We often hear about his ability to get a crowd going with his passionate speeches, or that he came into power at just the right time when the German people were looking for salvation.
It’s quite apparent that Hitler’s physical and mental health deteriorated throughout his reign, and it’s not far off to say he…
I was always curious about how people lived, and not just royalty or famous people, but the average everyday person. What did they eat? How did they cook? Which leads to…how did they go to the bathroom?
On a recent trip to Kyiv, I discovered the pretty amazing Museum of Toilet History. We were offered a guided tour, but being the nerdy historian I am, I opted to be the guide for my fiance and I. Needless to say, he was surprised about how much I knew…about toilets.

Herbs, plants and other natural ingredients were the basis of all medicine throughout history. It wasn’t uncommon that some of these remedies had no medicinal qualities whatsoever — there was a lot of trial and error to get to where we are today.
One interesting part of ancient medical history was the ancient Egyptian use of honey to keep out bacteria from wounds. They also used mouldy bread to prevent infections in wounds.
They may not have known exactly why these methods work, but now we have the science that explains how these procedures would have helped. We now know…
It’s worth jumping back a few centuries to take a look at the fathers of modern medicine and some interesting facts about how Humourism impacted and inspired medical thinking.
Hippocrates, often considered the father medicine, has been credited with the development of the theory of the four humours. Humorism gained more popularity later on through the writings of Galen and Empedocles who expanded on the theory, to include the four seasons and the four fundamental elements.
This theory dominated medicine and pharmacy for hundreds of years, despite having been disproven by many doctors and scientists since it’s development.
Finding the right partner to lease developers from can be a challenge. There can be a lot of unknowns…
Do they have the right technical skills? Will they be able to work well with my existing team?
There are some ways of determining if you’ve found the right fit. The best practice is to determine their developer’s communication skills, understand their recruitment process, and ensure that they’d be able to fulfill certain requests that go along with your companies processes.
Finally, take a look at the guarantees they offer. After all, it is your project, and you want to find…

A normal part of our childhoods was playing outside during recess and singing nursery rhymes, most of which had games that went along with them.
Ring Around the Rosie was one of those nursery rhymes, where we would all hold hands, stand in a circle, and turn while singing it. In the end, we would all let go of each other's hands and fall to the floor.
This can bring back so many fond memories for us, but the truth is, this nursery rhyme is speculated to be about the Plague!
The Plague, also known as the Black Death or…
Flutter is an SDK (Software Development Kit), which means it provides all the tools needed to develop a digital product. Developers who work with Flutter code in its unique language called Dart, which was developed by Google. Flutter uses Dart to translate applications into iOS and Android.
Flutter development is easy to learn for most developers, and Google puts a lot of effort into the development of this SDK. Since Flutter is open source, it is easier for developers to implement code — this is because anyone can contribute to the Flutter library as a developer. …
There are a lot of concerns and questions about working with a remote team. It may seem scary at first because it can be unfamiliar territory!
You can’t just walk into their office?!
What about time differences?
How will I be kept in the loop?
My plan here is to help you better understand how working with a remote team functions, take a look at common client concerns and demonstrate that these concerns are not as problematic as you might initially think. Also, it only makes sense to talk about the benefits of working with a remote team!
