Think – Today: Why Do We Have A 24-Hour Day?

by Anura Guruge


sundialWhy 24? Why wasn’t it 20? Have you ever wondered? Pretty important to our lives. Most of us are slaves to time, but we are so busy that we never get a chance to think as to how time, as we know it, came to be.

Think first, then research, then THINK again. Think for the pleasure of thinking.

Yesterday’s ‘Think’: “Changes in the composition of the atmosphere” — 99% of our current atmosphere is made up of two gases: Nitrogen (78%) & Oxygen (21%). All the other gases, including the Carbon Dioxide (that gets talked about so much in the context of climate change), fall within the remaining 1%! Carbon Dioxide, right now, only accounts for about 0.037%. As far as scientists have been able to determine, this 99% Nitrogen/Oxygen composition, possibly with some ‘small’ variations, has been around for the last 200 million years! WOW. In the ‘early days’ and we are talking maybe a billion years ago there was much more Carbon Dioxide and considerably less oxygen. Photosynthesis by plants, where they absorb Carbon Dioxide and release oxygen, was a factor in changing the composition of the atmosphere.

WARNING: Amazon’s “Prime Photos” Can & Will Lose Photos! I Lost 192 Yesterday.

by Anura Guruge

Do NOT use Amazon’s “Prime Photos” IF you
do NOT want randomly lose photos!

I lost 192 photos yesterday.



You have now been WARNED.



Yesterday I told you, categorically, that Amazon’s “Prime Photos” was not ready for Prime Time.

That was before I discovered that Amazon had JUST LOST 192 pictures that I had uploaded and even put into two albums.

And that is the really SCARY part.

It allowed me to create two albums using the uploaded pictures.

I, of course, checked the albums when they were created.

Had the right number of pictures and the pictures were there.

Four hours later when I was going through the albums again Amazon said that these two albums were EMPTY — no photos.

That is unacceptable.

Luckily I had not deleted my original photos on my PC.

This is SCARY.

I have stopped using Amazon “Prime Photos”.

Be Aware.

Be very AFRAID.

Stay clear.


And I am an Amazon shareholder. So, I really do want Amazon to do well. I live off my Amazon shares! So when I say don’t use it you should take notice. {SMILE}
