For us to get through the day, we carry specific items that we need. These are the things that will keep us entertained, help us with our tasks, and for our survival. The most common mistake for a lot of people is that they don’t prepare and anticipate. People are more reactive rather than being proactive. It means that they wait for something to happen before they even respond than being ready before an event unfolds.
We should be ready no matter what, and you must have the items for communication, for self-defense, for information, and even for purchasing. If you have all of the essential things, then you are more than ready to face even the worst-case scenario. So here is the list of the things that you need to have with you every day.

Of course, one of the most important things to know is the date and time. Today, watches don’t just tell you about the time. A lot of people don’t know that some watches have features that are important for survival. These enticing functions are the temperature gauge, chronograph, tide graph, moon phase, time equation, rotating bezel, perpetual calendar, and a GTM indicator.
Don’t settle for a watch that runs out of battery because it’s a useless watch. Purchase a watch that is durable, classy, high-standard, and will look good on you, and then the Hamilton American Classic watches should do the trick. These are classic and vintage vibe watches that include automatic and chronograph watches. The watch will surely suit your style and any clothes you wear.
The most important thing for daily survival is money. With cash, you can buy food, clothes, have shelter, and if you are bored, you can purchase something that will entertain you. If you are financially stressed, then money is the answer because it can help you get what you want and what you need. The value of money for people is high because some are saving for their needs in the future.
If you speak it philosophically, you cannot buy everything with money, but it is used to calculate a person’s status. If ever you are in a situation that you don’t have anything with you except for money, then you will still survive and get what you need. You only need to know how to spend, and on what to spend because getting money is not easy. It will take you time to have lots of it.
Communication is also vital for a person if they want to get through the day. While there a lot of ways to communicate with other people, a cellular phone is the most accessible way in terms of technological advancement. People get quickly bored with what they have, and that’s why we have smartphones so that we can access a lot of things, and it will keep us from boredom.

It is essential to have excellent communication with others. You will need to get in touch with your family, colleagues, or various health professionals. There are pieces of information that you cannot easily send through letter or email because it is inconvenient, but with the use of a cellular phone, it is more accessible. Life and death situations will make you realize the importance of always having a phone.
You might be wondering why you would need to carry a lighter every day, even if you are not a smoker. The answer is that it somehow serves a higher purpose in a survival way of life other than lighting a cigarette. With a lighter, you can light a propane stove for cooking and lit up a candle in case there is a power outage. You can also open a bottle using a lighter, but you need a little practice before you can do that. Last but not least is that you can offer it to your smoker friends or stranger, which is helpful to them.
No matter where you are and what time it is, always be prepared and simulate that worst-case scenario that will happen in your daily life. Know what you should do and what to bring so that if it happens, you are prepared and ready to face whatever is coming. Always carry with you those items listed above, and you are good to go.
Every child who grew up in the 90s and the early 00s has certainly grown up around Tom and Jerry, the adorable, infamous cat-chases-mouse cartoon. The idea of naughtiness and playing mischief had the standards that this particular series set for children and defined how much wreckage was funny enough.
The show's creators, William Hanna and Joseph Barbera initially named their characters Jasper and Jinx. They did not plan for the fame that Tom and Jerry brought them when they released a movie by the name of "Puss Gets the Boot". This movie featured a certain cat and mouse who were a notorious pair, named Jasper and Jinx. When the movie became a hit, the names of the characters were changed and the show shot to fame.
Tom and Jerry became a go-to cartoon for children in the early 00s, and it was one of those shows with a firm foundation, that had already been in the running for decades. The original template had been planned nearly 80 years ago, and the makers did not change it. The music that was played in the many episodes, made a breakthrough in its own way. It is the most easily recognizable melody with utterly nostalgic associations.

A set of supporting characters were defined for the show, to occasionally take the focus off the original pair. There was a large, black woman named Mammy Two Shoes and a bulldog who took Jerry's side. Mammy Two Shoes was discontinued because her character portrayed racist tendencies. A tall white woman replaced her, who was kinder and loved mice. Either of the women's faces was never revealed.
Today, Tom and Jerry is still a household name in homes where children love cartoons. There are a host of other shows besides this that aim to replicate the same aspects of the cartoon but do not come close at all. Despite the immense amount of violence in the show, it is a beloved pastime of parents and children alike.

One of India's leading private museums, the Museum of Art & Photography (MAP) Bengaluru, has released new primary research conducted by the ReReeti Foundation, on audience behaviour in India's cultural sector. While more than half of the respondents thought the arts and culture are essential, they rarely manage to make time for it. The majority (60.6 per cent), mostly young people under 30, felt Indian museums could present more engaging content, and most perceived culture as anthropological/ sociological. Of the diverse categories included, music emerged as the most popular cultural activity.
The report is based on a survey of 500 people, which included school and college students, professionals across sectors, homemakers and senior citizens. The first initiative of its kind in the cultural space, the report shares valuable insights into the behaviour and expectations of Indian audiences engaging with a broad range of cultural activities. As part of MAP's mission to foster meaningful connections between communities and the cultural sector globally, which includes its innovative digital programme Museums Without Borders, the report shares a wealth of insights that can help museums across the country understand their audiences better. As much as 60.6 per cent said Indian museums are not experimental enough, and can do more to create engaging content that is also relevant to surrounding communities.As much as 60.6 per cent said Indian museums are not experimental enough, and can do more to create engaging content that is also relevant to surrounding communities.

Speaking on the recent report, Kamini Sawhney, Director, Museum of Art & Photography (MAP), said, "MAP is focused on changing the notion of a museum in India, by enabling more relevant and inclusive programming, both online and in our space in Bengaluru. The audience research commissioned by MAP, and conducted by the ReReeti Foundation, provides valuable, and actionable insights which we hope will help museums across the country better understand their consumer base, improve decision making and deepen social impact." As much as 62.3 per cent college students and 47.6 per cent professionals/homemakers perceive culture as anthropological and sociological. Music was the most popular cultural event likely to be attended, followed by heritage tours and plays/comedy shows for Indian audiences.
Over 70 per cent of college students visit museums with family and friends; working professionals, homemakers and senior citizens also predominantly visit with groups/ spouses (indicating a need to focus on increased group programming/facilitation). As much as 68 per cent of people were optimistic about going outdoors for activities and events in 2021. As much as 60.6 per cent said Indian museums are not experimental enough, and can do more to create engaging content that is also relevant to surrounding communities.(IANS/MBI)

What is the best way to save Goa from deforestation?
Drinking feni, may well be the answer, says the secretary of the Goa Cashew Feni Distillers and Bottlers Association Hansel Vaz, who on Thursday said, that sipping the state's unique alcoholic drink and making it popular would directly aid the greening of Goa's hills and other barren landscapes.
"To get more cashews, we need to plant more trees. I always say, by drinking feni you will save Goa, because we will be planting more cashew trees and we will have greener hills. The beauty of cashew is you do not need fertile land. You can grow it on a hill which can provide no nutrition. We will be able to grow more trees, if we can sell feni properly," Vaz said. Vaz's comments come at a time when the hillsides of the coastal state have witnessed significant deforestation for real estate development and for infrastructure projects. Feni is manufactured by fermenting and double distilling juice from the cashew apple.

Addressing a press conference in Panaji, Vaz also said that the promotion of feni was also in sync with the Prime Minister's vision for India to go "vocal for local". "There is no conglomerate, multinational company owning the drink. So every time we sell feni, it is a direct cash injection into Goa. If you sell a feni cocktail in Calangute (a popular beach village), it makes a direct impact in Valpoi and Bicholim, because this money is going down there," the Association official said at a press conference in Panaji.
The Association held the media briefing to announce a road map ahead for the feni industry, especially vis a vis streamlining aspects related to production, standardisation and marketing of the brew to make it popular in other Indian states and abroad.
The efforts to streamline the state "heritage drink" comes a month after the Goa government notified a formal policy, 'Goa Feni Policy 2021', which covers 26 different varieties of feni distilled in the state. "There were many barriers related to feni, which the policy has now addressed," treasurer of the Association Tukaram Haldankar said. One such hurdle was the previous government classification, which described feni as "country liquor", which would deter tourists from purchasing the drink. The reclassification of feni as a state "heritage drink" has lent dignity to the brew which has been manufactured locally in Goa since the 16th century.

But there is more the government can do, along with the state's traditional distillers and manufacturers to promote feni, Haldankar said. "We request the government to allow the sale of feni in duty free stores in airports and cruise liner terminals. The government should also support us through the department of Tourism, so that feni can be promoted in its programmes. iIf you go to Scotland, they promote Scotch. Goa should promote its feni to Goa," Haldankar said, adding that traditional distillers should also be given subsidies and other measures should be taken to standardise feni, which he said, "would require further subsidies and financial assistance from the government".
"It should be a standard product like scotch, champagne," Haldankar said. "Like Mexico's tequila, Russian vodka and Japan's sake, we need to export our feni across the country and the world and the local distillers should also benefit economically," president of the Association Gurudutt Bhakta also said.
