Facts You Don’t Know About Google – The Internet Giant

Google was developed in 1998 by Sergey Brin and Larry Page. It was their research project at Stanford University to find files on the Internet. Google is 20 years old now and one of  the most influential companies across the World.

Here are some fun facts that you might don’t know about this internet giant.

1. Google isn’t the first search engine

It is probably not the first ever search engine. Several search engines were already operating before it. Like AltaVista, AskJeeves, Yahoo! and others but Google has a better quality of search and a simple, ads free home page that helped it prevail as the most popular search engine.

2. It was initially called Backrub

Larry Page and Sergey Brin first named their search engine as ‘Backrub’. Thankfully they changed the original name and change it to Google,  it means the mathematical expression for a 1 followed by 100 zeros.

3. Set a Timer

Google can also work as a timer. Just write ‘timer’ after any amount of time and it will start a timer. This is helpful for students and kitchen working ladies.

4. You can filter your Gmail account

If you add “+anything” to your Gmail address it will still work, which means you could sign up to certain websites using youremail+websitename@gmail.com and create a folder that all emails from that site automatically go into.

5. Google did not create ‘Android’

Google didn’t build android. It was created independently and then bought by Google for $50m. From the Samsung Galaxy S9 to the OnePlus 6, Google’s operating system for phones has become the main rival to Apple’s iPhone.

6. Do a Barrel Roll

It is one of the most fun facts. Just type ‘Do a barrel roll’ in search and the search engine will roll.

7. Play Atari Breakout

Just simple type ‘Atari Breakout’ on google images and you’ll find yourself playing the game for hours.

How To Lose Weight In Only One Week

The society that we live in, it can never let us be happy with the way that we are. Especially when it comes to our weight. We might pretend that we don’t care much about it. But secretly all of us do. And who doesn’t wanna look amazing when they pass by mirrors or for maybe someone special in JUST one week?

Here are a few tips to lose weight rapidly.

1. Drink mainly water

A sports or energy drink, fruit smoothie, or light beer — each serving contains about 100 calories. Yet these beverages don’t satisfy you the way 100 calories of food does, so they’re a waste. Other liquids may be high in sodium and carbohydrates, which trick your body into retaining water, puffing you out.
Water, on the other hand, has zero calories and carbs and little to no sodium, making it the perfect slim-down drink. And, strangely, it actually helps flush out excess water weight as well as jumpstart your metabolism.

If water is too boring, add lemon wedges or mint leaves using an infuser.

2. Swap Refined Carbs for Veggies

The simple carbs in white rice, spaghetti, and sandwich rolls can “wreak havoc on your weight because they’re digested very quickly, leaving you hungry and more likely to overeat later,” says Jana Klauer, M.D., author of The Park Avenue Nutritionist’s Plan.
Instead of replacing these foods with healthier whole-grain bread products, which contain filling fibers that can sometimes trigger bloating, sub in vegetables for the week: Instead of rice, try cauliflower “rice” made by grating cauliflower.

Instead of chips and dip, go for carrots and dip. The complex carbs from these vegetables are digested more slowly than simple carbs , so you’ll remain full longer. And because veggies are mostly water, they also help flush out excess water weight.

3. Do Cardio 30 Minutes a Day

Any workout that gets your heart rate up will burn calories. But you’ll use more calories if you pick a cardio routine that engages multiple muscles simultaneously, says Wendy Larkin, personal-training manager at Crunch’s Polk Street gym, in San Francisco.

Three to consider: spinning, cardio kickboxing, and boot-camp workouts. Half an hour of each torches 200 to 300 calories while toning up your arms, legs, and core so everything appears sleeker and tighter.

You’ll burn even more calories per session if your workout incorporates interval training: alternating short bursts of intense cardio with slower activity. Experts aren’t sure why it works, but trainers swear by it.

4. Drink Coffee an Hour Before Working Out

This is the one exception to the stick-to-water-only rule: Just as a coffee run makes your morning at work more productive, a pre-exercise cup of java with a splash of skim milk (about 11 calories) or black (just 5 calories) will energize your workout, explains Dr. Klauer. “You’ll burn more calories without realizing you’re pushing yourself harder.”

5. Do 36 Push-Ups and Lunges Every Other Day

These gym-class staples will help sculpt muscle, so you’ll sport a more streamlined appearance. Do three sets of 12 of each exercise every other day. “Push-ups target your upper body, while lunges work your butt, hips, and thighs,” says Larkin. Quick tip: Make sure your back and legs remain in a straight line during your push-ups; it’ll improve muscle tone. Also, you can build even more muscle with the lunges if you hold free weights in each hand while doing them.

6. Sleep 30 Minutes More a Night

That extra half an hour, whether you sleep 5 hours or 8, can refresh you enough that you will make better food choices (in other words, no quick sugar fix for breakfast in search of energy) and won’t feel lethargic and skip the gym, says registered dietician Esther Blum, author of Eat, Drink, and Be Gorgeous. More restful sleep (7 to 8 hours is best) also boosts your metabolism. And because your body builds muscle while you snooze, getting zzz’s equals better muscle tone.

7. Make One Food Sacrifice

Cutting out one indulgence — such as the chips you have with lunch or the chocolate dessert you eat after dinner — can subtract a few hundred calories from your diet, which translates into less flab, says Blum. “Your body won’t even notice their absence.”
