17-facts-about-foxes-habits-bloodless-hunting-and-other-interesting-unknown-things

Despite the fact that foxes do not live with humans, they do not need special introduction. Thanks to folklore, children already at an early age get acquainted with a small animal, which compensates for weakness with cunning, but does not miss its own, if it is possible to offend a weaker one. Of course, it is worth separating the image of the fox, formed in our imagination under the influence of children's fairy tales and cartoons, from the real lifestyle of the fox.

 

As one of the most famous researchers, Charles Roberts, wrote, it is always difficult for a person describing the habits of highly organized animals to resist endowing them with some human traits. The notorious fox's cunning in real life appears only when the animal leaves the chase. At this time, the fox very skillfully winds around, confusing tracks, and can disguise itself in an instant, disappearing from sight.

 

On the hunt, foxes are quite straightforward. They operate according to the scheme “detection of prey - lightning attack - end of the hunt”. On average, foxes range in size from half a meter to a meter in length. The tail, which is approximately two-thirds of the body length, is counted separately. The maximum weight of foxes is 10 - 11 kg, while it is subject to significant seasonal fluctuations. Foxes are by no means exclusively forest dwellers. Rather, even, they can be conditionally attributed to the inhabitants of the forest-steppe and woodlands - it is in these natural zones that fox food lives and grows.

 

The fox is not only nicer than the fox hunter, he's a deal more useful –  archive, 1982 | Hunting | The Guardian

 

Geographically, foxes are found almost everywhere in the Northern Hemisphere, with the exception of extreme climates. In the Southern Hemisphere, foxes live only in Australia, where humans have successfully introduced them. However, the success of fox breeding in Australia is relative - they were turned on, desperate to cope with rabbits, but foxes, finding themselves on the smallest continent, preferred to hunt smaller fauna. The rabbits, to the desperation of the farmers, successfully continued to breed. Bemorepanda presents you some interesting facts.

 

1. Despite their small size, foxes are rarely hunted by larger animals. Of course, a wolf, bear, lynx or wolverine will not refuse the opportunity to catch a gaping fox. However, such a chance appears very rarely - foxes are attentive and fast. Purposefully, they practically do not hunt adult foxes. Young animals are in great danger. Even birds of prey hunt on it, not without success.

 

Taking into account the human factor - and the hunters, if possible, knock out foxes by the thousands - the average life span of a fox does not exceed three years. At the same time, foxes do not die at all because of the exhaustion of the body's resources - in captivity, cases were recorded when foxes lived for 20 - 25 years.

 

2. Foxes are practically not afraid of humans, so they are well studied and take root in captivity, allowing people to breed new subspecies. People living in rural areas naturally do not like foxes - red-haired beauties often destroy birds and small livestock. However, zoologists argue that the damage from foxes is often exaggerated.

 

3. English "Fox Hunting" fun did not come about because the villagers lacked entertainment. England is so densely populated that the last wolf was killed at the beginning of the 16th century. The disappearance of wolves has led to an unprecedented breeding of foxes, who have lost their last natural enemy. The consequences for the farmers were clear. Angry peasants began to organize massive fox hunts. They managed to kill some animals, but the noise raised by the crowd of “hunters” was more important.

 

American red fox - Wikipedia

 

The first mention of such a hunt dates back to 1534. The technology turned out to be more than successful - by 1600, specially bred dogs were required to hunt foxes. At the same time, economic processes were going on in England, which led to the deprivation of the peasants of free non-agricultural land, and fox hunting became the property of the nobility. It turned into a whole ritual with lush ladies' toilets, old-fashioned hunter's costumes, etc. At the beginning of the 21st century, after a short debate, the British Parliament banned fox hunting with the help of a pack of more than 3 dogs. One vote in the House of Commons was enough to abolish the age-old tradition.

 

4. There is a hunt for foxes without the death of these animals. This is still the unofficial name for sports radio direction-finding competitions. The role of foxes is performed by constantly working transmitters hidden in rough terrain. Athletes are armed with receivers. Their task is to find all transmitters in the shortest possible time (usually there are 5 of them). Fox hunting competitions were very popular during the Cold War.

 

The essence of the competition is very close to counterintelligence work to identify and eliminate intelligence channels of communication. Therefore, state structures, primarily the military and counterintelligence, supported the athletes in every possible way. The end of the Cold War and the rapid development of information technology devalued "fox hunting", and now only enthusiasts are engaged in this sport.

 

5. The caution and quickness of foxes forced hunters to invent several methods of hunting these animals. The fox is lured with a bait. The carcass of an animal or a large piece of meat is left in a well-shot place, and the hunters hide nearby. The fox is lured with decoys, and in recent years, two-module electronic decoys have gained popularity.

 

In them, the control path is in the hands of the hunter, and the luring sounds are emitted by an external loudspeaker. This design allows you to take the fox to a place convenient for shooting. Large companies of hunters practice hunting with a salary, with flags. Hunting dogs are used, both hounds and greyhounds, chasing foxes in the field (greyhounds also strangle fugitives themselves) and burrowing dogs, driving the fox out of the hole.

 

6. Despite the fact that fox hunting is popular wherever these animals are found, even the most successful hungry hunter will not be able to feast on fox meat in Russia. The fox is a very active predator, so there is practically no fat in the fox meat. This makes it extremely tough, fox meat is much tougher than the meat of other predators.

 

The refreshed carcass emits a very unpleasant odor, which is weakened, but does not completely disappear even after 12 hours of soaking in vinegar and salt. Finally, the rodents that make up the fox's diet are packed with parasites. Foxes have developed a very powerful immunity that humans do not have. Therefore, the meat must be subjected to long heat treatment. When boiling, the unpleasant odor reappears, so the only way to cook fox is stewing with a lot of seasonings and spices. The Scandinavians, striking everyone with their surstroemming - pickled herring - distinguished themselves here too. In Sweden and Denmark, foxes are raised for meat on special farms and even some of the products are exported. At retail, fox meat costs about 15 euros per kilogram.

7. Around the middle of the 20th century, foxes began to be bred and domesticated as pets. On a scientific basis, Dmitry Belyaev's group in Novosibirsk worked on this. A careful selection of the most intelligent and affectionate individuals gave results only after many years. D. Belyaev became an academician, a nice monument was erected to him and one of his pupils in the Novosibirsk town - the scientist and the fox sit on a bench, stretching out their hands to each other. But even many years of efforts did not lead to the development of a new breed. Scientists who continue to work on improving the behavioral qualities of foxes refer to their pets as “population” only. That is, it is just a large group of individuals living in a limited area.

 

8. Unscrupulous “breeders” of foxes have long managed to instill in cheating buyers the idea that a fox is the same dog, only a cat. In a sense, the animal is very loyal to the owner and, at the same time, cleanly and independently. And if the animal does not behave the way the owner wants, then this is the owner's problem. Only with the development of mass communications did the hapless fox breeders manage to share with the world the delights of keeping a fox as a pet. The character of the fox does not depend on the place of purchase, whether it is a special nursery, a reseller, or even the side of the road on which a potential pet was hit by a car.

 

Regardless of whether you got a rather extravagant pet for free, or you paid 10 or 80 thousand rubles for it, it will have extremely unpleasant behavioral features. He will shit anywhere; gnaw and dig wherever possible; make noise at night and stink around the clock. It is the smell that is the most serious negative property of the fox. It can be somehow accustomed to the tray (the contents of which will have to be changed at least twice a day), but the fox will never get rid of the habit of secreting the secret of the paranoid glands, which is unpleasant and painful in the eyes, with any strong emotion from love to fear. Therefore, keeping a fox pet is best in a spacious enclosure in a private house, but not in an apartment. But in any case, you need to take care of rubber gloves and strong detergents in commercial quantities.

 

9. Foxes adapt to almost any environment. There is little animal food - foxes easily switch to vegetable food, without suffering from this at all. It gets colder - we grow, to the delight of hunters, a thick undercoat. It gets warmer - the undercoat falls out, and the fox looks like a sick puppy. Even the color of foxes' fur depends solely on the environmental conditions.

 

If there are many predators in the habitat, foxes dig deep holes with branched passages and a dozen, or even more, exits. Such holes in area can reach 70 square meters. m. There are relatively few predators - and the hole will be short and shallow, and two or three emergency exits will be enough. In cold regions, the main entrance of the burrow faces south, in warm and hot regions - to the north, and in deserts and steppes - to where the winds blow less often.

10. "Fox hole" for some reason is called a type of residential buildings, similar to a hole, except for the location of the entrance on the slope. Modern "fox holes", projects of which are proposed by many construction companies, may not go deep into the ground at all - they are just structures, the walls of which are heaped with earth. Human "fox holes" have both advantages and disadvantages, but they have nothing to do with foxes, except for the name.

 

11. The tightening of hunting rules and environmental legislation everywhere leads to the fact that foxes are gradually approaching human habitation. It is much easier to find food near people than in the wild, than foxes enjoy and enjoy. On the territory of the countries of the former USSR, by and large, only residents of villages and small settlements located near forests suffer from them. It is impossible to fight thieves who destroy small animals. The law expressly prohibits shooting within populated areas only at rabid animals. To do this, you need to confirm the disease, which cannot be done without killing the fox - a vicious circle.

 

In Europe, foxes are firmly established in the largest cities. According to estimates of epidemiologists, about 10,000 foxes live in London. 86% of the townspeople have a positive attitude to the red-haired robbers who fight with dogs and cats, gut garbage bags, and shit wherever they have to. Humans, it turns out, feel guilty about animals that have been bullied for hundreds of years. In Birmingham, foxes became such a disaster that a special team had to be created to capture them.

 

The team did a great job, catching a hundred animals. They were taken to the nearest forest and released - it is inhumane to kill. The foxes returned back to the city (and it's good if they didn't bring friends and girlfriends with them) and continued their dirty deeds. The careless attitude of the townspeople towards foxes is surprising - foxes endure the most terrible infections, including rabies.

 

12. The sea fox is a stingray of a sizeable size (up to 1.2 meters in length). It lives off the coast of Europe, including the Black and Azov Seas, and along the entire Atlantic coast of Africa. Fox sharks can also be found in the water column. These are three species of predators, ranging in size from 3 to 6 meters. In theory, fox sharks are considered shy and not dangerous to humans. Flying foxes also belong to foxes solely by name. These are the largest fruit bats in the world, until recently they were combined with bats. The body of a flying fox reaches a length of 40 cm, and a wingspan of one and a half meters.

 

13. The English word “fox” - “fox” has nothing to do with the familiar phrase “Fox is the 20th century film company”. “Fox” in this case is the surname of an enterprising Hungarian whose name was either Wilhelm Fuchs, or even Vilmos Fried. Having arrived in the USA, the Hungarian changed his name for the sake of euphony and founded a film company. In 1930, the company was taken away from him during a hostile takeover. Fox - Fuchs - Freed fought but lost. From him the film company remained, as the song says, only the name.

 

14. "Desert Fox" - German Field Marshal Erwin Rommel, who in 1940-1943 successfully commanded German troops in North Africa. However, Rommel did not use any special cunning in the command. Like all successful German military leaders of World War II, he knew how to concentrate forces on a narrow sector of the front and break through enemy defenses. When there was nothing to concentrate, "Desert Fox" abandoned troops in Africa and went to Hitler to ask for reinforcements.

15. “Fox's tail and a wolf's mouth” - this is how some jokingly and some shaking with fear called the policy of General Mikhail Loris-Melikov in Russia at the end of the 19th century. Under Emperor Alexander II, Loris-Melikov, who became famous in the Russian-Turkish war of 1877-1878, was simultaneously the Minister of Internal Affairs and the head of the gendarme corps. The authority of the Ministry of Internal Affairs at that time included practically all domestic politics, from the basic sectors of the economy to the care of the weak and orphans.

 

In this post, Loris-Melikov had a "fox's tail" - he advocated the weakening of laws, the growth of public initiative, etc. Having moved to the office of the chief of the gendarmes, the general used the "wolf's mouth", not letting the revolutionaries go (in his understanding) ... The fox tail involuntarily outplayed the wolf's mouth - on March 1, 1881, Emperor Alexander II was killed, and one of the captured terrorists said that their leader had been arrested before the assassination attempt, but Loris-Melikov's charges did not receive any evidence from him about the impending assassination attempt.

 

16. Foxes are firmly included in the mythology of dozens of peoples, and their influence on a person can be exactly the opposite, regardless of the place of residence of the peoples. Koreans, Chinese, and Japanese compete in the degree of fear experienced by foxes. The transformation of an animal into a seductive woman with the subsequent torture of the victim through pleasures is not yet the most terrible outcome that lies in wait for a Far Eastern man. Kitsune (in Japanese "fox") spread the life of those to whom they came in the form of a beauty, to smithereens - they ruin merchants or drive rulers into disgrace. It is difficult to imagine what they did in medieval Japan with the men to whom Kitsune appeared in the form of a handsome young guy.

 

At the same time, in India, the North American Indians and a number of European peoples, the fox symbolizes prosperity, good luck or wealth. Christians already at an early stage identified the fox as Satan's accomplices - beautiful, wagging its tail, and even wool the color of hellfire. Nevertheless, some peoples, including the Slavic, have retained a negative but complacent attitude towards the fox. “We know, the fox, about your miracles”, “And the fox is cunning, and they sell its skin”, “The fox takes care of, the cat curls up to it” - these proverbs clearly indicate that people have long imagined the nature of the red predator.

 

17. Employee of the Voronezh Zoo Tatiana Sapelnikova told a very interesting case. Zoo workers had to determine the concentration of small animals such as mice in one of the forest areas. During a routine procedure, zoo workers set traps for mice. However, the work of scientists was greatly hampered by the foxes living in the district. For several years, zoologists set up identical traps, and the number of mice caught in them determined the size of the population.

However, over time, the tracks showed that someone was reducing the number of mice trapped in the trap by carefully removing them and eating them nearby. Zoologists realized that the fox is no longer guided by mice, but by the smell of people setting traps. After a short game of "catch me" they managed to lure the fox - the zoologists originally nicknamed him Ginger - into a kind of aviary. The fox was absolutely not worried about bondage. When the scientists managed to carry out the necessary experiment with mice, Ryzhik was released. He did not run far, and even two chanterelles appeared nearby. They themselves did not figure out how to find the mice and take them out of the traps, but they unmistakably appreciated the extraordinary abilities of the future groom.

top-100-interesting-things-from-wtf-facts-the-most-popular-facts-page-on-twitter

The concept of fact-checking came to new media from traditional journalism. More precisely, from the principles of the editorial office: an editorial filter is a necessary condition in the technology of a journalist's work. This technology is due to ethical principles: independence, objectivity, impartiality, accuracy. Due to the observance of these principles, the trust of the audience appears and the reputation of the publication is formed.

 

A fact is an event supported by reliable evidence. Different people may have different views on the same event, but you can't argue with the facts. That is why the fact should not only be established, but verified, rechecked and “cast in granite”.

 

Therefore, distortion of facts is a crime against objectivity and accuracy. Worse if it is a deliberate crime against independence and impartiality. It’s very bad when it’s a deliberate manipulative construct.

 

In modern digital communications, the concept of "factoid" is becoming more and more relevant. This is an initially non-existent fact, which, being published in the media, receives a lively reaction and assessment. And they, in turn, affect the picture of the world and the actions of people. The truth is not that important, in fact, if the effect is real.

 

Bemorepanda has prepared some interesting facts about everything in the world. WTF Facts is one of the most famous Twitter pages, here you will find a lot of interesting facts that will amaze you. Bemorepanda is at your disposal so that every day the most interesting things reach the screens of your devices.

 

Top 100 interesting things from WTF Facts

 

1.A speeding ticket in Finland

 

2.Free people in Mexico

 

3.Winning lottery

 

In Russia there is a famous story. This is very reminiscent of the episode of the cartoon about kolobok investigators, where the evil animal dealer Karbofos buys a porcelain elephant from a junk dealer, gets a certificate on him, breaks the now unnecessary trinket and says: "The elephant is bad, the certificate is good!" After that, according to this certificate, he leads a live elephant across the border. The rustic border guard stupidly looks at the certificate, correlates what is written in it with what he sees, and lets the animal across the border.

 

Likewise, people for the most part, following automatisms and stereotypes, trust the form, not critically perceiving the essence. There is a help - come through. On TV they said - it means the truth. Journalists won't lie! Even if the host of a popular talk show is in the frame, and not a journalist in the full sense of the word.

 

In the same way, various phenomena and events are actualized and legalized. Unconsciously or prudently, they are embedded in the form of "confirmed" facts in the information picture, as a result, distorting the entire canvas. This technique is actively used by propagandists, cyber fighters, network trolls and other manipulators of all stripes.

 

4.Support dogs in Zoo

 

5.Golden Arm

 

The fact checker's main weapon is doubt. Professional mistrust, reality check. Here, the logic and toolkit of fact-checking largely coincides with the methodologies and technologies of scientific work. Moreover, a course on source study specialized for historians can raise the level of quality of a journalist's work with sources by an order of magnitude. Be it living interlocutors or material carriers of natural and artificial origin.

 

Newspaper ducks, gossip, rumors, speculation, factoids, manipulations, irresponsible and malicious fakes, technical errors and typos - all this scum is opposed by fact-checking. This is a powerful weapon, which, alas, is often not well known to those who work in the field of mass communications.

elon-musk-best-75-funny-quotes-and-jokes-that-made-him-famous-in-2021

Elon Musk is an entrepreneur, engineer, inventor, investor, philanthropist and visionary. A lot of activities, right? Not nearly. If we list the number of companies he founded or is currently CEO, we fill another line - PayPal, SpaceX, Tesla, SolarCity, Hyperloop, OpenAI, The Boring Company, Neuralink, Zip2.

 

Elon Musk was born in Pretoria, South Africa and has had entrepreneurial values ​​for a long time. He currently has it all started when he founded Zip2 in 1995 with his brother. The business involved an online city guide, which at the time was in the realm of science fiction. He made his first money from selling it in 1999. He earned about $ 30 million for his share of the company. That's where the ascent began.

 

This was followed by a series of investments, from his next company, X.com, which later turned into PayPal, and then came Tesla and SpaceX, businesses that really brought him fame. Elon Musk is also known for his ambition to prevent a possible human extinction, bringing our species to the rank of "multi-planetary civilization" by creating a colony on Mars that can support life. He has often been ridiculed for his conceptions, which seem very "ahead of their time," but all the time he has proved us right.

 

Other ideas that Elon Musk came up with include Hyperloop One, the way he wants to reinvent the transportation industry, inventing a fifth way we can move. It is a vacuum tube through which pressurized capsules with speeds of up to 900-1000 km / h are to circulate, which is currently being tested. It would link, in the first phase, San Francisco to Los Angeles, and, in the other part of the world, Dubai to Abu Dhabi.

 

  1. “People work better when they know WHERE they want to go and WHY.” - Elon Musk
  2. “What really matters is a person's good heart.” - Elon Musk
  3. “I'm looking for a long-term relationship. I'm not looking for a one-night stand. I'm looking for a serious partner, a soul mate, things like that. If I'm not in love, if I don't have a stable partner, I can't be happy.” - Elon Musk
  4. “Big companies are built on big products.”- Elon Musk
  5. “I would like to die on Mars. But not during a fatal impact.”- Elon Musk
  6. “Life is too short for long-term resentment.” - Elon Musk
  7. “I like to be involved in world-changing actions. “- Elon Musk
  8. “I think we are at the dawn of a new era of space exploration.”- Elon Musk
  9. “When I was a kid, I used to say, "I don't want to be alone!"- Elon Musk
  10. “It's important for people to come to work and enjoy what they do.”- Elon Musk

 

 

After so many innovations in a very wide range of fields, you would be tempted to say that Musk doesn't have much time for anything else. Wrong. SpaceX created the world's first reusable orbital rocket and managed to reduce the cost of launching into space by a third. Asked at one point by a journalist if he didn't feel like he needed a vacation, Elon Musk responded by saying, "I once took a vacation and a rocket exploded. I'm not going to repeat this mistake. "

 

Space X has become a US government contractor and frequently flies to the International Space Station to carry supplies and food. Most of its launches take place on ramp 39A at Cape Canaveral, which is also the starting point for Apollo 11, the mission that took the first humans to the moon. The missiles used are their own products and are called Falcon, an allusion to the famous ship "Millennium Falcon" from the Star Wars series.

 

  1. “I don't create companies for the sake of creating companies, but to do the job.”- Elon Musk
  2. “The only thing that makes sense is to work together for collective enlightenment.”- Elon Musk
  3. “If humanity did not land on Mars during my lifetime, I would be very disappointed.”- Elon Musk
  4. “Patience is a virtue, and I am still trying to learn to be patient. It's a hard lesson.”- Elon Musk
  5. “In order for your voice to be heard in Washington, you have to make a small contribution.”- Elon Musk
  6. “It's OK to have all the eggs in one basket as long as you know what's going on in that basket.”- Elon Musk
  7. “When I say something, it usually happens. Maybe not immediately or scheduled, but it happens.”- Elon Musk
  8. “When something really matters to you, you do it even if you are unlucky.”- Elon Musk
  9. “Some people don't like change, but we have to accept it when the alternative is disaster.”- Elon Musk
  10. “People have to do exactly what they love. This will make them happier than anything else.”- Elon Musk

 


In addition to space travel and various tubes, Musk focuses heavily on the intelligent use of electricity. Tesla is proof of this obsession of his, the autonomy of the cars he created being the highest in the industry. The name is a tribute to the famous scientist Nikola Tesla. Musk is also experimenting with new technologies that he can implement on Tesla, such as Autopilot, which is already being implemented, in a somewhat more primitive way than he intends in the future.

 

Recently, Musk also invested in a startup called SolarCity, which plans to replace the traditional tiles you have on the roof of your house with some based on photovoltaic cells. They would be marketed at an extremely attractive price, incomparable to that of alternative technologies already present on the market. In short, you won't have to spend a lot of money on huge solar panels, but you can turn your roof into something like that. This technology will also be implemented on Tesla, the tailgate of the car will be replaced.

 

Seen as one of the most controversial startups in the world, Neuralink aims to integrate Artificial Intelligence into the human brain. Elon Musk co-founded this business in 2016, wanting to create a fusion between the brain and software so that man can take the next step forward. Among the benefits of this technology on the brain could be the increase in human memory capacity, as well as finding a way to interact more directly with digital devices.

 

  1. “There's a big difference between me and Tony Stark. I have 5 kids, so I spend more time at Disneyland than at parties.”- Elon Musk
  2. “If you wake up in the morning convinced that you will be fine in the future, then you will have a bright day. If not, no!”- Elon Musk
  3. “I think this is the best advice: to constantly think about how you could do things better and always ask yourself questions.”- Elon Musk
  4. “Do you want to be extremely rigorous about the best things you can do? Find the "faults" in your business and "fix them"!”- Elon Musk
  5. “I anticipate that in 30 years, most cars in the US will be electric, and I'm not talking about hybrid cars, but all-electric.”- Elon Musk
  6. “I believe that the purpose of life on earth means more than solving problems. It must have an inspirational purpose, even if the purpose is for the benefit of someone else.”- Elon Musk
  7. “I think it's wrong to hire a large number of people to solve a complicated problem. Numbers will never be the equivalent of talent in finding the optimal solution. Two people who know nothing are no better than one who knows.”- Elon Musk
  8. “It's not like we can burn coal in power plants. Coal is a finite resource and we need to find alternatives until we run out of coal, and by then, only God knows how many tons of carbon dioxide from the ground we send into the atmosphere.”- Elon Musk
  9. "A company is a group organized to create a product or service, and it's just as good as its people and how excited they are to create. I want to recognize a lot of super-talented people. I'm just facing companies ". - Elon Musk
  10. "Avoid hiring MBAs as much as possible. MBA programs do not teach people how to start companies. ”- Elon Musk

 


Contrary to the suggestive name, this startup of Musk is not boring at all, and the origin story is very interesting. One day, while he was stuck in traffic, Musk posted a message on Twitter saying that he would start digging some tunnels to solve the traffic problem. Said and done. As the company was founded at the beginning of the year, it could not quickly obtain testing permits in living areas. So he set to work in the backyard of SpaceX in California.

 

In private, Musk is very discreet. Its estimated wealth is 13.6 billion euros, ranking 80th in the top of the richest people in the world. The South African lives in the famous Bel-Air neighborhood of Beverly Hills and has 6 children from an older marriage. Now, he is with Amber Heard, Johnny Depp's ex-wife, a relationship with which he does not go out very often.

 

When he's not trying to change the world and take us to Mars, Elon Musk is a regular at surprise movie appearances. He had episodic scenes in "Machete" and, more recently, in "Why Him," a film that tells the story of a more nonconformist entrepreneur in Silicon Valley. He is also a big fan of the series "The Big Bang Theory", where he appeared in an episode, playing himself.

 

  1. "Being an entrepreneur is like eating glass and looking into the abyss of death." - Elon Musk
  2. "The brand is just a perception, and the perception will match reality over time. Sometimes it will be before, sometimes it will be behind. But the brand is simply a collective impression that some have of a product." - Elon Musk
  3. "Don't be fooled into believing that something works when it's not, or you'll be stuck on a bad solution." - Elon Musk
  4. "Failure is an option here. If things don't fail, not innovative enough." - Elon Musk
  5. "I am always optimistic, but I am realistic. Not with the expectation of great success I started Tesla or SpaceX ... I just thought they were important enough to do anyway. ”- Elon Musk
  6. "I always invest my money in the companies I create. I don't believe in using just other people's money. I don't think that's fair. I will not ask other people to invest in something if I am not prepared to do it myself. ”- Elon Musk
  7. "I think there is a lot of potential if you have a convincing product and people are willing to pay a premium for it. I think that's what Apple showed. You can buy a mobile phone or a laptop much cheaper, but the Apple product is much better than the alternative and people are willing to pay this premium. ”- Elon Musk
  8. "I don't create companies to create companies, but to get things done." - Elon Musk
  9. "I don't spend my time pontificating on high-definition things; I spend my time solving engineering and manufacturing problems." - Elon Musk

  2. "I think it's very important to have a feedback loop, where you constantly think about what you've done and how you could do it better." - Elon Musk
  3. "I think the best way to attract venture capital is to try to come up with a demonstration of any product or service that is and, ideally, take it as far as you can. See if you can sell this to real customers and you can start building momentum. The more you get, the more funding you will have. "- Elon Musk
  4. "I think we have a duty to maintain the light of conscience to make sure it continues in the future." - Elon Musk
  5. "I would have just asked things ... It would make my parents angry ... That I wouldn't have believed them just when they said something, because I would have asked them why. And then I would consider if the answer was sensitive given everything I knew. "- Elon Musk
  6. "I wouldn't say I have a lack of fear. In fact, I'd like my fear emotion to be less because it's very distracting and fried my nervous system." - Elon Musk
  7. "I'm interested in things that change the world or that affect the future and the wonderful, new technology in which you see it and say to yourself, 'Wow, how did this happen?' How is that possible? '"- Elon Musk
  8. "Actually, I haven't read any books on time management." - Elon Musk
  9. "If something needs to be designed and invented and you have to figure out how to make sure the value of the thing you create is greater than the cost of inputs, then that's probably my core skill." - Elon Musk
  10. "If something is important enough you should try, even if the likely result is failure." - Elon Musk

  3. "If you try to create a company, it's like baking a cake. You need to have all the ingredients in the right proportion. ”- Elon Musk
  4. "It is a mistake to hire a large number of people to do a complicated job. Numbers will never compensate for the talent in getting the right answer (two people who don't know something are no better than one), will tend to slow down progress and make the task incredibly expensive. ”- Elon Musk

  6. "It's very important to like the people you work with, otherwise your life and job will be pretty miserable." - Elon Musk

  8. "People should follow what they are passionate about. This will make them happier than almost anything else. ”- Elon Musk

  5. "The first step is to determine that something is possible; then the probability will occur." - Elon Musk

  8. "At SpaceX we have a 'strict no-rope policy.' - Elon Musk

  10. "When Henry Ford made cheap and reliable cars, people said, 'Nah, what about a horse? "It was a huge bet that he made and it worked. ”- Elon Musk

 

 

  1. "When someone has an innovative evolution, it's rarely a small thing. Very rarely, it is a small thing. It's usually a bunch of things that collectively are a huge innovation. ”- Elon Musk
  2. "When something is important enough, you do it even if the chances are not in your favor." - Elon Musk
  3. "It simply came to our notice then. That is, you only need to enter weeks between 80 and 100 hours each week. [This] improves the chances of success. If other people put in 40 hours of work and put in 100 hours of work, then even if you do the same thing, you know that you will achieve in four months what they need a year to accomplish. ”- Elon Musk
  4. "You have to say, 'Well, why did he succeed where others failed?' ”- Elon Musk
  5. "You shouldn't do things differently just because they're different. They have to be better. ”- Elon Musk

Geographers also want to answer confusing questions, such as "What time is it at the South Pole?" And other interesting things.


Earth or the Blue Planet, is the third planet from the Sun and the largest of the terrestrial planets in the Solar System. It is the only planet in the universe known to have life and hides a lot of amazing details.


Today through the prism of 100 folders you will discover new things from all over the world. In the meantime, you will be able to read curiosities about our planet. It's time for new acquaintances with Bemorepanda!

Planet Earth is part of the solar system, is the largest terrestrial planet, formed about 4.57 billion years ago and is the densest planet in the entire solar system. Read general information about planet Earth.


Planet Earth revolves around the sun in 365.26 days, and this period is known as one year. During all this time, the Earth rotates about its axis about 366.26 times. During gravity, the Earth interacts with other objects in space, especially the Sun and Moon, the Earth's only natural satellite.


Seasons appear on Earth because its axis of rotation is inclined relative to its orbital plane. The gravitational interaction between the Earth and the Moon stabilizes the Earth's orientation on its axis and gradually slows down its rotation.


The Earth's surface is 71% covered with water, mainly by the oceans, and the remaining 29% is made up of continents and islands that, along with other rivers and water sources, contribute to the hydrosphere.

The name of the planet Earth does not derive from Greek or Roman mythology, as is the case with the other planets that were named after gods and goddesses from Greco-Roman mythology. The word "earth" comes from the Latin word "pavimentum", which means "paved earth" or "level", "floor", "paved road", "smooth place", "pavement", "mosaic" or "weft".


Since its formation, the Earth has undergone many geological and biological processes. The Earth's atmosphere and oceans were formed by volcanic activity and expulsion. From here, water vapor condensed into oceans amplified with water and ice from asteroids, comets and protoplants.


More than 3.5 billion years ago, the Earth's magnetic field stabilized, and this prevented the solar wind from scattering the atmosphere.


Approximately 4.5 billion years old, the Earth was formed when a cloud of dust collapsed due to gravity, and like planets such as Mercury, Venus, and Mars, the planet Earth is a rocky, central core. which is surrounded by a mantle and a solid crust.

The shape is approximately oblique spheroidal and, due to the rotation, the Earth is flattened at the poles and bulging around the equator. Its diameter at the equator is 43 kilometers, larger than the pole-pole diameter.


The main deviations from the Earth's surface are: Mount Everest, 8,850 meters above sea level and the Marianas Pit, 10,924 meters below sea level.


The Earth's mass consists mainly of iron (32.1%), oxygen (30.1%), silicon (15.1%), magnesium (13.9%), sulfur (2.9%), nickel (1 , 8%), calcium 1.5%), aluminum (1.4%), the remaining 1.2% consisting of small amounts of other elements. Due to mass segregation, it is estimated that the core consists mainly of iron (88.8%), with smaller amounts of nickel (5.8%), sulfur (4.5%) and less than 1% trace elements.


The total area of ​​the Earth is about 510 million square kilometers, of which 70.8% and 361.13 square kilometers are below sea level and covered with ocean, the remaining 29.2% and 148.94 million square kilometers, respectively it is not covered by water and consists of mountains, plains, deserts, plateaus and other landforms.

Due to the swelling of the earth at the equator, the summit of Mount Chimborazo in Ecuador (20,700 feet or 6,310 meters) is the farthest point from the center of the Earth. Thus, the mountain claims the title of being "the highest point on Earth" (although Mount Everest is still the highest point above sea level). Mt. Chimorazo is an extinct volcano and is located about a degree south of the equator.


While at sea level, the boiling point of water is 212 F, it changes if you are higher than that. How much does it change? For every 500 feet of elevation increase, the boiling point decreases by one degree. Thus, in a city 5,000 meters above sea level, the water boils at 202 F.

Because the longitude lines converge at the North and South Poles, it is almost impossible (and very impractical) to determine which time zone you are in based on longitude.


Therefore, researchers in the Arctic and Antarctic regions of the Earth typically use the time zone associated with their research stations. For example, because almost all flights to Antarctica and the South Pole come from New Zealand, New Zealand time is the most common time zone in Antarctica.


The longest river in Russia and Europe is the Volga River, which flows entirely in Russia for 3,685 km (2,290 miles). Its source is in the Valdai Hills, near the town of Rzhev, and flows into the Caspian Sea in southern Russia.

At one point, in recent decades, someone started an idea to alert people that population growth was out of control, saying that most people who have ever lived were alive today. Well, that's a gross overestimation.


Most studies place the total number of human beings who have ever lived between 60 and 120 billion. Since the world's population is currently only 7 billion, the percentage of people who have lived and are alive today is only 5% to 10%.
