If you are looking for a detective, it is first important to know what to look for in one. There are many investigators out there, but not all of them would be the right fit for you.

You need to be very careful when it comes to selecting a detective, as choosing a wrong fit can get you into serious trouble.

Without wasting anymore time, let’s have a look at some of the qualities of a good detective:

  1. Trustworthy

A detective should be trustworthy. It is quite understandable why it is the most desired quality.

When you hire a detective, you would be needing information that is classified and confidential. You cannot hire a person who would give your personal information to someone else as that can get you into real trouble.

Always go for a detective who understands the importance of confidentiality and promises to keep your secret a secret.

You can check this factor by checking testimonials and reviews online. Another good option is to speak to the person directly and see what kind of information they give to you. If they give more information than you asked for (about a private case), then it is not a good company to go for. This indicates the person does not trust boundaries as talking about other cases is generally prohibited.

  1. Affordable

This is a very important factor since money is scarce. You must make sure to pick a detective that’s affordable. Since insurance does not pay for such charges, it is important to be careful.

You should also ask about extra charges as some detectives may charge you separately for other expenses, including telephone calls and travel. For example, if you hire a detective to keep an eye on someone, the detective may be required to even travel out of country. This can add to the expense, so make sure to be clear about these factors.

  1. Experienced

Hire a detective who knows the job well. Experience can make a lot of difference in this field, since an experienced detective knows all the secrets and can find even hidden information.

You can ask questions related to experience and also find out the kind of cases the detective has solved previously. Someone with experience in your kind of case would be a better fit than someone who has no experience in handling similar cases.

  1. Good Links

Look for a detective who has good links throughout. The job of a detective is to find information, and for this reason they need a huge web of people they can trust.

Find out the detective how they plan on finding specific information and see if they seem reliable.

A good detective typically is available on an emergency hotline, ready to listen to your requirements. We are sure the tips provided in this article will help you make the right call. The secret lies in being careful and doing proper research.

SAN FRANCISCO — Facebook critics pounced Wednesday on a report that the social network plans to rename itself, arguing it may be seeking to distract from recent scandals and controversy.

The report from tech news website The Verge, which Facebook refused to confirm, said the embattled company was aiming to show its ambition to be more than a social media site.

Surgeons attached a pig kidney to a pair of large blood vessels outside the body of a deceased recipient so they could observe it for two days, and the kidney did what it was supposed to do.

Scientists temporarily attached a pig's kidney to a human body and watched it begin to work, a small step in the decades-long quest to one day use animal organs for lifesaving transplants.

Pigs have been the most recent research focus to address the organ shortage, but among the hurdles: A sugar in pig cells, foreign to the human body, causes immediate organ rejection. The kidney for this experiment came from a gene-edited animal, engineered to eliminate that sugar and avoid an immune system attack.

Killer Smog in Delhi.

Developed by the Indian Institute of Tropical Meteorology (IITM), Pune, a Decision Support System (DSS) that extends the ability of the existing air quality early warning system (AQEWS) to have decision-making capability for air quality management in Delhi-NCR was launched on Tuesday.

The website for the DSS ( is designed to help the Commission for Air Quality Management for NCR and Adjoining Areas (CAQM) by delivering quantitative information about the contribution of emissions from Delhi and its 19 surrounding districts; the contribution of emissions from eight different sectors in Delhi; and the contribution from biomass-burning activities in the neighbouring states.

These information would assist in managing the air quality in a timely manner, a release from the Ministry of Earth Sciences said.

The need was stated by the CAQM, which was formed by the Ministry of Environment, Forest and Climate Change, during a meeting held in January 2021.

Recently, the Commission reviewed the progress made by IITM and had in principle approved the current version of DSS for air quality management in the Delhi-NCR. The IITM has also developed a new website for DSS with the entire system made operational, the release said.

Union Minister of State for Earth Sciences, Jitendra Singh, while launching the website for AQEWS on the occasion of 'Azadi Ka Amrit Mahotsav' week organised by the Ministry of Earth Sciences, said, "DSS is a significant contribution to 'Azadi Ka Amrit Mahotsav' on behalf of MoES and IITM and suggestions are invited on this issue."

The website also has a feature whereby the users can create their own emission reduction scenarios (from 20 different districts, including Delhi) so as to examine the possible projected improvement in air quality in Delhi for the next five days.

"This information would explicitly highlight the most important emission sources responsible for the degradation of air quality in Delhi and suggest possible solutions to ameliorate the same. With a plethora of quantitative data, the AQEWS integrated with DSS could become a user-friendly tool for air-quality management in and around Delhi," the release said. (IANS/JB)
