Ili Pika – Rarer And Cuter Than A Panda

ili-pika

CNN reported –

Native to a remote region of China, this tiny mammal, known as the Ili pika, doesn’t know it’s a member of an endangered species — and neither do most people. Rarer — and some would argue cuter– than the panda, there are less than 1,000 of these teddy bear-like creatures living in the Tianshan mountain range in the Xinjiang region of northwestern China, says conservationist Li Weidong. Li discovered the pika, formally known as Ochotona iliensis, in 1983 and named it after his hometown, Ili.

Dual-panel File Managers – FreeFile Review

dpfm

Dual-panel windows file managers, or Explorer replacements, put two instances of Windows Explorer in a single program window. They usually offer tabbed panels as well as other utilities. On my search for a dual-panel windows file manager, I found only minor differences between most of the free programs. FreeCommander seemed to best fill my needs, so I gave it a test run. This became a side-by-side test when I came across Windows Double Explorer. WDE unlike other file managers, uses Windows Explorer in its panels, rather than replacing it. For a month I ran both FreeCommander and WDE on the same Windows 10 PC. Both programs were fast and ran without any issues.
FreeCommander — Initially, I found the program to be less than ideal. Things improved once I discovered all of the options and customizations that are possible. Increasing the font size and enabling the ‘Tree’ and ‘Favorites’ on the left column greatly improved workflow. Like most file managers, panels can be tiled horizontally or vertically and are tabbed (for multiple Explorer instances in each panel). Several additional tools (File Shredder, Zip utility, Renamer) are available under the File menu. After a month, I still have not explored all of the options offered. The shear volume of options in FreeCommander can be daunting.
Windows Double Explorer — WDE is probably the simplest dual-panel windows file manager available. It offers very few options and customizations; and no additional tools are included. If you like Windows Explorer and are looking for a dual-panel option, WDE may be perfect. Sadly, it is no longer actively being developed.
— — — — The Bottom Line — — — —
I will continue to use FreeCommander as I prefer all of the options it offers. However, Windows Double Explorer is a good choice for those who prefer simpler software.

This set of photos on Imgur illustrate the differences between what we expect and what we find when traveling. Beautiful, pristine beaches and magnificent landmarks seem less appealing when the crowds arrive.

It’s Crazy – Gwyneth Paltrow Actually Sells This Crap

MoonDust-s

Actress Gwyneth Paltrow sells overpriced clothing and beauty products on her site GOOP. The worst of the lot are the Moon Juice supplements. These are mixtures of herbs and spices that are meant to be drunk. They claim to fix all that ails you – ancient crazy BS.

My favorite is the Sex Dust, which claims –

This warming elixir is designed to stimulate and cultivate sexual flow in both men and women. Ancient ingredients from ho shou wu to cacao and maca send sensitivity and power to all the right places, supporting primordial energy and vital essence. Bonus: As it nourishes sexual vigor, it also enhances creativity.

Only $60 (2 ounces) for some Ho Shou Wu to get your sexual flow flowing – buy HERE. Sorry, it’s sold out.

So, you might try Spirit Dust, which promises divine energy, expanding awareness, creativity, peace, and joy, $65 available HERE.
