Two places to see in Vienna and not to miss

The same applies to Vienna as regards other “monumental cities” such as Venice, Florence, Budapest, and Prague. It is a city so rich in churches, museums, monuments, art, and culture that it would take weeks to visit everything properly. So, unless you have a lot of time and resources available, once in the city you need to make a selection of things to do. More than anything, however, we must tune in to the thousand-year history of the Austria capital, learning to appreciate its complexity, that mixture of ancient and modern where there is room for everything: from the majesty of the palaces symbolizing the Habsburg power, the modern and contemporary art of the Museums Quarter, the “green” atmosphere of the Prater, the largest public park in the city. Such a successful mix that Vienna has for years been at the forefront of almost all the world rankings that measure the quality of life. Quality of life that remains stuck to the millions of visitors who every year pours into the city to deepen the “Central European spirit” that has made it famous throughout the world despite all kinds of ups and downs. Here are the two places you must not miss.

  1. Ringstrasse

This is the most beautiful avenue in the world. This is the unanimous opinion of the Viennese, also shared by many tourists. Ringstrasse measures about 5 kilometers, starts and ends in a Danube canal and has a characteristic horseshoe shape. The building was commissioned by King Francis Joseph I of Habsburg. In fact, it was realized the uselessness of the medieval walls that, on the one hand, constituted a barrier between the Hofburg (the royal palace) and the neighborhoods of the city bourgeoisie; on the other, however, they had not prevented the entry of the Napoleonic troops into the city. For this reason, it was decided to break down the fortified walls and to replace them with a wide one tree-lined avenue where all the main city buildings began to rise. From the former Stock Exchange Palace to the Votivkirche (church built by Francesco Giuseppe as a vow to survive an attack by a Hungarian independence), without forgetting the University, the Parliament, the Town Hall (Rathaus), the museums of Natural History (Naturhistorisches Museum), History of Art (Kunsthistorisches Museum) and the National Theater of the Opera (Burgtheater). A gigantic work of urban transformation that went on throughout the second half of the 19th century according to the canons of historicist architecture that involved revisiting and updating the main styles from the past the classical style becomes neoclassical, the gothic becomes neo-Gothic, the Renaissance neo-Renaissance, etc.

  1. Stephen’s Cathedral

The Cathedral of Santo Stefano is a perfect compendium of the millenarian history of the city. The traces of Romanesque, Gothic and Baroque witness the evolution of architectural styles and, on the other hand, allows us to reconstruct the vicissitudes, wars and dynasties that have crossed the heart of Europe. To say, the bell tower of the North Tower, the mythical Pummerin, is said to have been built by melting the metal of the hundred and more cannon balls that the Turks threw against the medieval walls of Vienna. One of the largest and most beautiful bell towers in Europe has emerged. However, this is not the only record.

What Is Sleep Apnea?

Sleep apnea is a very serious and dangerous disorder in which breathing is interrupted and can potentially be completely stopped during sleep. Sleep Apnea often occurs to those with diabetes, weight issues and more. It’s not always caused by another health issue, but in the majority of people, a clean diet and weight loss can easily solve the problem.

Can Sleep Apnea kill you?

I’ve been asked many times whether sleep apnea can kill you. I have to be honest with friends who ask me this disturbing question because the truth is yes sleep apnea can kill you. It can halt your breathing completely and cause you to die in your sleep. This is why if you have severe sleep apnea it’s recommended to get an oxygen tank and breathing mask for when you sleep.

How serious is sleep apnea?

Sleep apnea is pretty serious. There are worse diseases and disorders out there and sleep apnea is fairly common, but the worse it is the more dangerous it is. On low levels of the disorder sleep apnea can be harmless, you may experience some loud snoring and occasionally be woken up, however on the serious levels you can die and breathing could be stopped.

How do I cure sleep apnea?

The first and easiest way to cure sleep apnea is to simply sleep on your back. Sleeping on your back reduces the restriction on your chest and lungs and allows you to take deeper breaths. Another easy and simple cure is to lose excess weight, often times people experience that the weight on their chest from the excess fat causes sleep apnea and difficulty breathing. Not only does weight loss help with a range of other health issues but it helps greatly with sleep apnea.

Overall the best cure is to get to sleep the quickest. I’ve seen videos like how to fall asleep fast that summarizes some great ways to fall asleep easily and get a good nights sleep.

VersionTech 2400 DPI Gaming Mouse Review

If you love your Multiplayer Online Battle Arena(MOBA) video games, you would understand how key a good mouse or thumb drive is to acing the deadly action where not are your click reflexes are tested but is also how quickly your mouse translates your responses to the screen that matters. With gamers making a lot of money playing and streaming gameplay online, the market is full of serious thumb tracks at a range of prices that can get the job done. The VersionTech 2400 DPI gaming mouse is a cheap but effective solution to your evolving gaming needs.

 

Features

VersionTech 2400 DPIThe mouse has an overtly graphic design on the exterior that is lit by a glaring LEDs inside that fit the mood of intense gaming marathons that you frequent. The mouse has a scroll wheel and an ergonomic design with rubber and skin friendly surfaces that make it easy for the mouse to be used for lengthy intervals, a must have for any good gaming mouse. The Versiontech gaming mouse can be connected to all 2.0/3.0 USB ports and does not need any drivers at all – all you have to really do is plug in the device to your PC/Laptop/Gaming console and start playing. The USB cord is also long enough to permit all kinds of adjustments in multiuser play. Also, the gaming mouse works on all different types of platforms – Windows Vista, Windows 8, Mac OS, Linux are all supported.

 

Finally, the key feature of the mouse is the four levels of adjustable DPI for the optical sensor in the mouse. You can choose between four different levels of sensitivity – 800/1200/1600/2400 DPI resolution. The varying levels are great if you use a lot of different surfaces to play.

 

Besides the scroll wheel, there are two side buttons on each side and an additional DPI button(to change the sensitivity) making it a total of six buttons. Also, the braided wire sync is provided with a defense magnet that prohibits interference when you are on multiplayer at a gaming conference or any other such gathering. This lets the mouse operate error-free at all times.

 

What are gamers saying about it?

The adjustable DPI is one great thing that users reviewing this mouse have appreciated. While it is often marketed that way, a large DPI is not always desirable and the four levels that you can control on the VersionTech gaming mouse really helps. Also, the futuristic design and the lighting that comes with it has received a bad rap, especially because it is more often than not just a red LED shining through. You can program it to change colors gradually but it is a hard job to do that and users more or less prefer to let it be. Professional gamers and experts such as Jeremy from TheTechInsider have stated that this gaming mouse is not as good as competitors in a similar price range.

 

Should you buy it?

The fact that the thumb scroll is so cheap is also great, especially for gamers who are not so serious(suppose they only play on the weekends) and beginners.

Why Do You Have To Wait For A Gate After Landing?

If you’ve ever been delayed after landing while the pilot announces you are “waiting for a gate to open up,” remember— it’s us on the other end of the announcement. And we’re just as frustrated as you. In fact, sometimes we can see open gates at the terminal, even as we make the announcement. We just aren’t allowed to park at them, because United’s management has no system to dynamically reroute the people and equipment needed. Most times, it doesn’t have to be this way.

A small investment would result in a dynamic gate assignment system, one which would assign landing flights to available gates, and direct ground support services to the appropriate place. The cost would be amortized in little time by the savings of on-time arrivals and downline on-time departures, not to mention fuel savings in this ultra-high-cost environment.

And in the Department of Simple Ideas, here’s one: We often take delays getting to the gate at the end of a flight because another plane is blocking our route to the gate. This could often be cured, and save time and fuel, by pushing back departing flights out of the way of the path other planes need to use to get to the gate. Pilots have to start engines and run two or three checklists after the plane is pushed back. This takes five minutes or more. If these planes are out of the way while the pilots do it, other planes can get in.  Experienced senior management would know that, or at least know enough to listen to those who do.

Tight Pilot Schedules Lead to Rampant Flight Delays

Pilot schedules built to incorporate only minimum days off leave no room for recovery when the schedules don’t fly as planned. In May, for example, some 50% of the pilots on some airplanes were assigned schedules built to minimum days off. Any burp in the system (thunderstorms for example) leaves no room for recovery since the pilot is at minimum days off and can’t fly anymore.

There is no feedback loop to the schedule builders from the actual operation. The crew scheduling group responsible for the day-to-day misconnections and cancellations for the real time operation is different than the schedule planning group. The day-to-day group knows that the lack of a pad or buffer doesn’t work, but there is no mechanism built by management to correct this, because any corrections would increase costs.

So the lack of communication and coordination increases misconnects, lowers customer satisfaction, and creates entirely predictable failures in the system. But management would rather pay these unbudgeted costs instead of increasing budgeted costs as required to do things properly. Short-term thinking, long term losses.

United’s Stock Price- Another Tilton Failure

When United exited Bankruptcy, its stock price was $40.83 a share.

On August 8th, its stock price was  $11.13 a share.

That’s a loss of 73% to shareholders. Over the same period, Continental’s share price declined 11% and Southwest’s share price dropped a mere 3%.

Instead of holding himself accountable, Glenn Tilton continues to blame external factors while creating additional wealth for himself.

It’s time for Glenn Tilton to go.
