Books are addressed as the closest friend of a human and are the closest thing we have to telepathic communication. Nelson Mandela said, “Education is the most powerful weapon we can use to change the world”. Books are incredibly powerful having the ability to teach us, move us, and influence the way we think.


It is amazing that someone could record their thoughts, observation, and experiences on the pages, and then someone else, completely unrelated to them can just read and learn from them and can apply in their lives.

European consumers will be able to use a single charger for all their portable electronics - an important step to increase convenience and reduce waste.

The European Commission, the executive arm of the European Union (EU), has announced plans for smartphone and other electronics manufacturers to fit a common USB-C charging port on their devices in an effort to reduce waste. In addition to phones, the rules will apply to other devices like tablets, headphones, portable speakers, videogame consoles, and cameras, reports The Verge. The decision will have a huge impact on Apple, as the company still uses its own Lightning connector to charge iPhones. The proposals only cover devices using wired, not wireless and a USB-C port is only mandatory for devices that charge using a cable.
