April 28The evolution of the cash register
Employees steal money. They call it a mistake in accounting or something else, and it is something that is very hard to prove. The only way to prevent this from happening is to put in place very strong inventory management and accounting systems that are completely fool proof. This why the company called NCR, or the National Cash Register, the same company that is popular in making ATMs around the world, had invented. This is also why the prices of products were fixed to non rounded figures, because the employee had to open the cash register every time there is a sale to take out change.
This has evolved into digital cash registers now, with complete inventory management, thanks to computers and databases.
Things have become so good that the customer can see every product that is being billed as and when it is being billed on counter displays placed appropriately.
April 23The law supports both sides
The world over, this is the only problem with the law. It supports both sides. The only way you can win a case is by hiring a good lawyer for yourself.
For example, if someone gets hit by a truck in Texas, the person can claim that it was the truck driver’s fault, and the truck driver can claim that it is the person’s fault. So whose claim would win? Both parties should hire a Texas Truck accident lawyer each, and the one that argues best will win the case.
April 20Why people get old
There is no old age for animals. They are born, they grow up, and then they die. Only humans have old age. This is because the human species chose to live till the day they become grand parents.
At any point of time, the human body never has a cell that is older than 10 years. A 90 year old man will not have a single cell in his body that is over 10 years old. Skin cells die out very often and are replaced with new ones.
So why do people get old? The cells that replace the old dead ones are not exact copies of the ones they have replaced. There will be differences. At the least, these are not digital copies that you do on your computer to copy a DVD without any loss in picutre quality.
Remember the good old days of the video cassette recorder? Quality is lost with every copy. But with the digital technology, videos have gained immortality. And for humans to gain immortality, humans should be digitised too.
But this would happen only very long in the future, we can’t expect this to happen any time soon. For the moment, the best that can be done is to apply some wrinkle cream onto your skin, and try and look younter untill the skin becomes irrepairable.
April 20The Evolution of Hair
Hair first formed in mammals to keep the heat generated by the body right inside it. As Mammals are warm blooded animals tey generate heat on their own and are not like the fish that don’t mind the surrounding temeeratures.
Sheeps have wool, gorillas have think patches ofhar on theirbody too, but humans shed all his hair except in his head and a few other places as he chose to use the wool of the sheep to keep himself warm. So now that Humans have hair, they are choosing to groom it and make it look attractive. There is not much use other tan this for the Human hair. A mutant version of Humans are developing baldness in their later ages, and maybe after a few hundred generations, humans would no longer have hair on their heads.
So I guess we should enjoy it while it lasts. There are ways for hair loss prevention that can be followed to let that hair remain n your head for longer, or maybe forever.
