When does Black Friday and Cyber ​​Monday fall out in 2017? What should you consider buying?

This year, the black-market sale of Black Friday falls on November 24, traditionally on Friday after the American Thanksgiving. The marketers are already getting “amazing promotions” and “big discounts”, and we advise on what to consider in this consumer madness so as not to end up with an empty wallet and a heap of unnecessary things bought at a “promotional” price.

Is “Black Friday”which falls on November 24 , and the following Monday, November 27, “Cyber ​​Monday” about online shops is a good day to make big purchases? Marketers and sales professionals want to convince us that this is the reason for this media noise, colorful banners with percentages, battles for big TVs and designer handbags in the news, and a sense of consumerism. But how is it in reality? Is 24 and 27 November profitable to go deeper into the pockets?

So what to look out for while planning your shopping for “Black Friday” and “Cyber ​​Monday”? First, do not be fooled by the “magic” that day. It is often the case that we are tempted by the height of the discount we do not even consider whether a given purchase makes any sense. Would not discount a percentage of that blended smoothie would have us even if we did not drink a smoothie? Before any purchase you should ask yourself if we would buy a given product, if not a discount or a discount. If the answer to this question is “yes”, then it is worthwhile to put money on the counter.

It is also important to check that the price is indeed a discount. The normal practice of shopping is to short-term raise prices to lower them later. “Which?” In the year 2015, he analyzed the prices of 178 products that had been discounted as part of the Black Friday sale. It turned out that as much as 49 percent. Articles were cheaper at some time before or after the “Black Friday”, and real discounts this day only concerned … 8 percent. Products! Let’s not be fooled.

What’s more, purchased in consumer amusement can not usually be returned. In addition, they often have some damage or hidden defects. Sellers know perfectly well that customers who pull them off their hands will not pay attention to them, and evident conscience will only appear at home when the “fever” is already falling. And then it may be too late …

In conclusion, the “Black Friday” or “Cyber ​​Monday” can buy something at an extremely attractive price, but you have to be very careful and reasonable. Keep track of prices of our products in popular price comparisons available on the internet. These sites have a history of the price of thousands of articles, so you can easily see if Black Friday discounts are real or just a marketing tick.

Pope calls for peace in Holy Land in meeting with Greek Orthodox patriarch

Pope Benedict on Monday called for a multiplicity of efforts to achieve a “stable peace” and allow coexistence in the Holy Land during his audience with Greek Orthodox Patriarch Teofilo III.

 

“This meeting offers me the opportunity to once again convey my closeness to all those who suffer from the conflicts that have plagued the Holy Land for decades,” the Pontiff said before the patriarch and his entourage, who will remain in Rome until Wednesday.

Francisco stressed that “the uncertainty of the situation and incomprehension between the parties continue to cause insecurity, limitation of fundamental rights and abandonment of the land itself for many.”

“That is why I invoke the help of God and I ask all the people involved to multiply their efforts so that the conditions for a stable peace based on justice and the recognition of the rights of all can be given,” he added.

For this, the pope said, “we must firmly reject the use of any type of violence, discrimination and intolerance for people or places of Jewish, Christian or Muslim worship.”

“The Holy City, whose status quo should be defended and preserved, should be a place where all can live peacefully, otherwise the spiral of suffering will continue for all,” he argued.

In this regard, he especially addressed the situation of the Christian community so that “it is always recognized as an integral part of society” and that, as citizens, “they never tire of their own contribution to peace”.

On the other hand, Francis expressed his desire to progress “on the path of full unity” between the Catholic Church and the Greco-Orthodox, separated since the “Great Schism” of the eleventh century.

“I am well aware that some of the wounds of the past continue to leave a mark on the memory of many. We can not change the history, but without forgetting the serious lack of charity for centuries, let us turn side by side to a future of full reconciliation and fraternal communion “the Pope concluded.

“Amazon is doing huge damage to tax-paying retailers. Cities and states across the US are being affected – too many jobs being lost!” Trump wrote in his Twitter account.

This is not the first time that the American president has attacked Amazon, since in June he accused the company of “not paying taxes” for its internet sales.

Trump has already been irritated by the coverage of his government on The Washington Post owned by Amazon president Jeff Bezos and his tweets critical of the paper often include the name of the e-commerce company.

“#AmazonWashingtonPost, sometimes cited as the guardian for Amazon not to pay internet taxes (as it should) only gives FALSE NEWS!” Wrote Trump at the end of June.

On April 1, Amazon began to collect state taxes on its directly sold products, with the exception of five states that do not charge fees for the sale of goods: Alaska, Oregon, Montana, Delaware, and New Hampshire.

Still, Amazon’s new policy does not necessarily apply to independent sellers who market goods through the digital platform, which gives them an advantage over physical-based retailers.

Several states are pushing Amazon and eBay to force independent sellers who use their platforms to raise state taxes or detail their sales.

There will be third season of Stranger Things!

After the first trailer of the second season of Stranger Things appeared last year , now the creators of the famous Netflix series, Matt and Ross Duffer , have announced that there will still be more ST … but not for long.

In an interview with Vulture , the brothers confirmed that in effect, there will be a third season, peeero who also  are planning to launch a fourth season and with it to put an end to the series.” 

The argument they gave, is that by the time the fourth season is launched, the children we now find adorable will be ready to go to college, that is why they will “adjust history.” However, Ross explained in the interview: ” I do not know if we can continue to justify bad things happen to us once a year. They will have to leave that town! It’s ridiculous”.

In addition to the above, there is the fact that the Duffer brothers have a couple of projects aside from Stranger Things . According to them, “they are very bad being multitasking “, or doing several jobs at a time.

“We’ve talked to people like Joe Russo (of the Russo brothers), who knows how to dominate the world while making the best movie of all time, we speak of Avengers: Infinity War. That made me feel really bad about myself , “Matt said.

Ross added:  And then the fans tell us online: ‘Why are they taking so long ?!’, but there are so many details of Stranger Things that have to be made by hand. We’re a bit of a driver. ”

“I think the main objective now is to focus on a higher genre with a focus on the characters. And no more children on bicycles ” , concluded Matt.

While Matt and Ross have already let their point out, fans may not allow the show to end. Just remember what happened recently with Sense8 , that after announcing the cancellation of the show, its creator,  Lana Wachoski, was convinced by the fans to write a third season , of which it is not yet known if it will see the light, At least on Netflix.

The second season of Stranger Things will premiere next October 27. Then we leave the trailer that was released during the Comic-Con.

More and more real estate in Poland gets into the hands of foreigners!

Real estate on the Polish sea is increasingly reaching the hands of the people of Ukraine and Western Europe. It is estimated that even 40 percent. Real estate goes to foreigners.

Residents of other countries buy mainly apartments in Poland. Specialists say this trend is not over yet and this market segment will continue to grow. It is anticipated that more apartments will be bought by Germans, Austrians, Swiss, and French.

Data from last year indicate that 6,400. The housing has gone to foreigners, the largest group of which are Ukrainians, followed by Germany and the British. All indications are that the trend will be upward, as many Ukrainians are given a permanent residence permit in Poland and they decide to live in big cities where they are more likely to find a job. According to statistics, Ukrainians will soon buy every fifth apartment in Poland.

The CSO data show that 79,000 people were built in Poland last year. Housing, of which 7% They bought foreigners. According to the Ministry of Interior and Administration, this is about 24%. More than last year. Apart from flats in big cities, holiday destinations are also popular on the Polish seaside. They are particularly popular among the British, Germans and Scandinavians who come to Poland primarily because of the good and very favorable relationship between costs and revenue. There is also a positive geopolitical situation because the arrival of the Vistula is recommended as safe by most foreign ministries of the European Union.

Interestingly, Ukrainians are buying apartments in Poland, whose price starts at 10 thousand. Zł per square meter of surface to finish. However, the prices of apartments bought by the eastern neighbors can reach as much as 30,000. Zloty per meter of finished apartment. Many of these purchased and finished flats will, however, return to the secondary market again.

Drastically decreased the number of nurses from the EU applying for a job in the UK

We are dealing with a drastic drop in the number of nurses from the European Union applying for a job in the UK. A whopping 96 percent decline in the number of nurses from the EU application in the UK compared with the previous year.

During the first quarter of this year, only 46 nurses from the European Union submitted applications for jobs in the UK. It is a 96-percent decrease in comparison with last year when employment in the UK trying to up 1,300 nurses.

Currently, the NHS is to work up to 57,000 immigrants from the European Union, including 20,000 nurses.In September last year – three months after the referendum on Brexitu, the number of applications fell to 344, while in the first quarter of this year trying to work only 46 nurses.

British health service, which is a long time in a serious crisis, among others, by a lack of skilled workers is not able to cope with this problem without the recruitment of specialists outside the UK. After the referendum on Brexitu dropped the number of applications among skilled health workers from the EU and there is no doubt that the responsibility for this is the current policy of the British government, which throughout the year there took care of giving any assurance on preserving their rights to immigrants from the European Union after Brexicie.

6 advantages of learning a new language with an app instead of a course

If you want to learn a language and start talking right away, leave behind obsolete language courses and modernize your way of learning from YA. It costs little and is worth a lot.

Nowadays, rare is the thing that you can not do from your mobile phone.

From listening to the radio of another country, make the weekly purchase or tune your musical instrument until you review the vocabulary of that language that you have set out to learn with just one click.

In this article I want to highlight the main advantages of learning with an app, at your own pace, from the phone and on your own.

1. Be able to pass to your level automatically

You sign up for a language course. You arrive the first day, there are people from all sides with different levels of the language in question. The teacher asks some questions or sometimes passes a small test to assess the level of each … Does it sound familiar? The reality is that, regardless of the level you put on, you are always going to have to wait for the students to go a little slower or you will be with your tongue out trying to reach those who know a little more than you. It’s so hard to keep up with the rhythms … Better on your own!

Choose if you are a beginner, advanced or if you want to go directly to the course of sayings, animals, adjectives, etc. Never better, it’s in your hand!

2. Being offline is the new luxury, take advantage!

The greatest benefit of learning from your mobile is being able to choose the time and place, but the great advantage of an app like Babbel is the ability to download the courses and complete them without internet connection. In one way or another, your progress is always recorded in the cloud, so you do not have to worry about updating anything on the mobile or the computer. It does not seem to matter much, but it is much more useful than we think!

For example, in the endless queue of the supermarket with little coverage, that metro line where you do not have time to concentrate on a book but to do a couple of lessons of 10 minutes, that flight in which gives you time to fall asleep, To read a while and take advantage of the tranquility of being offline to get you to learn a little vocabulary. Take advantage of those dead moments!

3. The review tool helps to establish new knowledge

Review is almost more important than learning itself!

The possibility to review when you learn “without a teacher” is the best. Our memory is programmed to forget the things we do not use every day, therefore, the review tool is a LUXURY.

In the review you can review all the words you missed in the lessons, so forgetting them will be much more difficult. In an app that has more than 8500 hours of learning, this feature is VERY useful.

4. Only when you feel the motivation

Picasso said “inspiration exists, but he has to find you working.”

Well, the same thing happens more or less with any form of learning. He has to get you motivated. We know that there is no point in doing something when we are tired after a long day at work. That is why YOU DECIDE when it is the right time to spend 10 – 20 minutes in that new language.

5. Start talking from the beginning

Did you know that 73% of Babbel users feel able to have a little conversation in the new language after using the app for only 5 hours?

That means that if you start to learn intensively, you can introduce yourself and ask for a beer or ask where the bathroom is in that new language after a very short time. Start with the preparations for that trip you have in a couple of months, or with the exam that awaits you at the end of the course!

Remember that speaking and using the language is the key not to forget it.

6. Alternative and cheap option to language courses

Quoting my Mexican friend Hector, “Going to a course is so stupid obsolete!” And well … you’re right! Traditional language courses are far behind, are not renewed or adapted to the needs of today’s society: they remain anchored in the past, with their rigid schedules, their old-fashioned classes and their work material that includes books that were Written 20 years ago. Not to mention the price of a private language course, which can only be accessed by a few. Learning through a didactic app like Babbel costs little, and it’s worth a lot!

In addition, Babbel was named the most innovative company in the education sector by Fast Company magazine in 2016. We are constantly working to improve our courses and motivate users to achieve their goal. What’s yours?

It’s in your hands.
