Hoodies Vs Sweaters - What Do Your Prefer?

Every year when the temperature drops and fall begins, everyone needs something to keep them warm. The question is: sweaters or hoodies?

The sweater is a famous piece of clothing that almost everyone knows about. The beginnings of the sweater date back to the mid-1800’s but became very popular in the 17th century with the French. Fishermen wore them on the cold seas, and they used to make them out of heavier materials such as wool. Sweaters can actually be made out of any material, but if you want to use it to add warmth you should choose from the most traditional materials such as wool or cotton.

So if the sweater is such a classic then why have a lot of people stopped wearing them? The answer is hoodies. Basically, a hoodie is like a sweater with a hood. Hoodies were first created in the 1930’s by a champion sportswear company that created the first hoodies for laborers in the frozen warehouses of upstate New York. Hoodies were also developed for track teams, football teams, and coaches who have to be outside in a lot of cold weather. After this, hoodies became a big item and served as a way for colleges and high schools to promote themselves. Nowadays, it is hard to imagine a cold winter or fall without one.

In recent years, sweaters have been going out of style and are being replaced with hoodies. Several students were asked whether they prefer sweater or hoodie, and they all said they prefer a hoodie over a sweater.

Keeping the market perspective in mind, Cyankart launched their winter collection early this November and it's easily been the most viral item in our online store's history. Check out the link below:

Harambe the gorilla didn't deserve to die, but neither did a child

No matter which way you look at it, the shooting of Harambe the gorilla at the Cincinnati Zoo & Botanical Garden this weekend was a tragedy. The 17-year-old male silverback was in the prime of his life, healthy and expected to be helpful in a breeding program aimed at increasing the number of the critically-endangered species in this world.

What's more, the 4-year-old child who managed to somehow get into the Gorilla World enclosure, and whose life zoo officials said was in grave danger, prompting the killing of a healthy animal, should not have been able to get anywhere near the animals.

Someone screwed up. Maybe a lot of someones.

But as the Internet has gone on and on (and on and on) about the happenings at the Cincinnati zoo this weekend, trying to pinpoint exactly who to blame, a piece of our humanity has been lost. Those pointing at the parents and the zoo both may have a point.

Those who are blaming the child, taking to social media to brand the child an "idiot," and much, much worse, do not.

Do you remember being 4? Do you remember what it is you did back then? Why you ate dirt or stuck marbles up your nose?

Do you remember not being allowed to do anything that adults could do, be it drive the car you really wanted to drive or shoot the gun you really wanted to shoot? Do you remember being wholly unaccountable for your actions because you were 4, and you couldn't be trusted to make life-altering decisions?

Still think the 4-year-old who crawled into the gorilla enclosure and was snatched up by Harambe was an "idiot" or worse?

The child did what children do. It wasn't a wise thing to do. It should have been thwarted by smart adults (whether that's on the zoo or his parents it's hard to say without knowing all of the facts).

Unfortunately, it wasn't.

Unfortunately, zoo officials at that moment in time could not wind back the clock. They couldn't make the parents mind their child a bit better. They couldn't rebuild the enclosure to ensure no mischevious toddler got inside. They were left with a decision that well-regarded wild animal expert Jack Hanna has called the correct one, one that he says was absolutely necessary to save a child's life.

A child's life.

Whatever went wrong in Cincinnati, the fact remains that a child could not be expected to pay for it. Harambe may not have deserved to die, but neither did a 4-year-old child.

Big Bang Theory: Best Episodes So Far

When The Big Bang Theory first premiered in 2007, no one knew it would become the massive phenomenon that it is today. Nine seasons later, the CBS series remains one of the most popular and widely watched sitcoms on TV. With the ninth season now concluded, we decided to take a look back at some of our favorite episodes from the show’s run so far. While there are obviously a lot to choose from, these 12 episodes (listed in chronological order) are some of the biggest standouts, highlighting the best of Sheldon, Penny, Leonard and the rest of the gang.

1. “The Middle Earth Paradigm”
Season 1, Episode 6

The guys attend a Halloween party at Penny’s apartment dressed in exactly the kind of nerdy costumes you’d expect: Sheldon as the Doppler Effect, Leonard as Frodo, Raj as Thor, and Howard as Robin Hood. Needless to say, they don’t exactly fit in with Penny’s friends, making for a series of hysterically awkward encounters. By the end of the night, Leonard and Penny have shared their first kiss and Raj wakes up in bed with a random girl. The episode is the perfect showcase of what The Big Bang Theory is about, at least in early seasons: four nerdy guys trying desperately to fit in and sometimes, against all odds, actually succeeding.

2. “The Barbarian Sublimation”
Season 2, Episode 3

In this episode, Sheldon gets Penny hooked to the world of gaming by introducing her to the PC game, “Age of Conan.” Penny, sick of getting nowhere in her personal and professional life, quickly becomes addicted, forgoing hygiene and work to spend days playing, eating Cheetos, and bugging Sheldon for ways to get to the next level. It’s one of the best early examples of the funny and unexpectedly warm relationship between Sheldon and Penny (aka”Shenny”). Plus, Penny realizing that she has to snap out of it while talking to Howard makes for a hilarious moment.

3. “The Bath Item Gift Hypothesis”
Season 2, Episode 11

It’s Christmas time and after finding out that Penny has gotten him a gift, Sheldon finds himself forced to reciprocate the gesture. Without knowing exactly how much she’s spent on him, he can’t make up his mind and ends up buying a bunch of gift baskets to cover his bases. When it comes time to actually exchange gifts, Penny presents him with something beyond his wildest dreams: a napkin used and signed by Star Trek’s Leonard Nimoy. Cue a hilarious Sheldon-sized freakout that results in the rarest of occurrences: a hug from Sheldon to Penny. 

4. “The Einstein Approximation”
Season 3, Episode 14

In this episode, Sheldon is once again grappling with a puzzle he can’t solve – specifically, a physics problem about electron behavior. After enduring sleepless nights and going to all kinds of crazy lengths to try to find an answer, he decides he needs to take on a menial job that will allow him to free up his mind. He ends up masquerading as a waiter at the Cheesecake Factory where Penny works, where he finally gets his answer. 

But the true highlight of the episode? When Leonard gets a call in the middle of the night that he has to pick Sheldon up at a local mall, where he is using the plastic balls in a children’s ball pit to build carbon atoms. As Leonard desperately tries to get him out of the pit so they can go home, Sheldon keeps diving in and popping out of the balls, shouting “Bazinga!”

5. “The Cruciferous Vegetable Amplification”
Season 4, Episode 2

When Sheldon works out that he won’t live long enough to download his consciousness into a robot body, he attempts to extend his lifespan by changing his diet and eating cruciferous vegetables. When those only serve to give him gas, he instead decides to build a “Mobile Virtual Presence Device,” which leads to countless funny moments. Case in point? Leonard trying to turn off Sheldon while driving his virtual presence to work and Sheldon trying to figure out how to open his office door, considering his device has no hands. Major bonus: Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak appears in one of the show’s best cameos.

Why Breaking Bad Is Better Than Game Of Thrones

Breaking Bad and Game of Thrones have been 2 of the greatest T.V shows of our time and in leagues of their own. Though they are kind of similar in genre, both being drama, albeit crime and fantasy respectively, I don't think there is any objective benchmark to compare the 2 and proclaim one to be better than the other.

However, as a viewer, I do have my favourites and I would any day pledge my heart to Breaking Bad than Game of Thrones due to the following reasons:

  1. The thrill and adrenaline rush that a person can get from BB is vastly superior to that from GoT if the person is someone who has read the GoT books beforehand and already knows the story. Though there sure is the anticipation of watching it on screen, the effect of being completely hit in the face by something unknown and unexpected is lost in this case. You already know what's going to happen and it is only 'about time'.

    There were episodes in BB which had TOTALLY unexpected twists and blows and left me clutching my heart in the madness. For me personally, the end of S05E13,To'hajiilee was one of such moments. I think I forgot to breathe for some time.
    IMDb has a little something to offer here: IMDb: IMDB's Top Rated Episodes - a list by mi286.

  2. GoT interweaves multiple plotlines with several noble houses, their kings, members, the mythical creatures beyond the wall, the fight for the Iron throne and a multitude of characters from Arya Stark to Tyrion Lannister. The point is, there is AMPLE scope for drama. There are infinite possibilities and theories that can be conceived, for such is the layout of the story. It is not as big a deal that the series is engaging and so endearing.
    But BB has just a single plot. Just a handful of characters that you can count off on your fingertips. And come to think of it, in the beginning, it is just this middle aged, overqualified chemistry teacher who wants to cook meth! It is just the everyday woes of an average man struggling to pay his bills, dealing with a surprise baby and a son who has cerebral palsy. It is just some ordinary man who's bogged down by his responsibilities. Now come on, how interesting CAN he get? But herein, lies the greatness of Vince Gilligan (the creator) and thus of Breaking Bad.
    Gilligan has beautifully turned this insipid, but morally righteous man into a ruthless drug lord (cook, to be more technical)  whose morality just vanishes into thin air by the end of the series. From a meek and gentle human, he becomes this manipulative bastard who could go to any lengths to protect his interests.
    Epicness through simplicity. Period.

  3. The level of intellect or knowledge required to enjoy BB to the last bits is minimal due to the same reason that things are pretty much straightforward with few characters and a single plotline. But in the case of GoT, you NEED to know all the characters, the houses and keep track of all those seemingly small characters who make an appearance here and there for they might weigh in heavily in the future. In short, if you don't know the people, their background, their interests and ambitions or can't place someone, you wouldn't understand a thing and thus not be able to enjoy it. Many a time, some of my friends who hadn't read the books would sit and read the Wikipedia pages for the corresponding episodes they had just finished watching to get the full crux of it. So yes, again, you HAVE to put in some effort to comprehend the whole thing. But with BB, no such difficulty is encountered as you just need to sit back and enjoy.

Why Dexter Ended The Way It Did

The eighth and final season of Dexter was an abomination marring a once-respectable TV series. With largely piss-poor new characters, killers and plot development, Dexter spiraled downward into a finale that defied not just odds but main character Dexter Morgan’s M.O. in life. But for all the questionable choices found therein, star Michael C. Hall is able to put the finale’s final scenes into a justifiable perspective, at least inside of Dexter’s head if no one else’s.

Hall recently took part in a Reddit AMA in promotion for his lead turn in Broadway’sHedwig and the Angry Inch, and he was of course asked about Dexter’s escape from Miami by faking his own death and eventual life as an Oregon truck-driving lumberjack. Here’s how he explained the serial killer’s mindset.

"Though…given what he’d been through, and his attempts to have his cake and eat it too in regards to indulging his compassion to kill AND have a more authentic life, his self-imposed exile did resonate.

I think Dexter came to believe that…anything he touched would eventually be destroyed and so he felt he needed to let it all go. Of course, Dexter is also a pragmatist and a self-preservationist so he didn’t do himself in. But rather put himself on hold.”

I kind of like that explanation. Like a neat freak gunshot victim who walks to the hospital because he doesn’t want to get blood in the car, Dexter found a way to reach a solution that worked for his more obsessive needs. Even if it spit in the face of years of yammering about his Dark Passenger never leaving him. Looking back, I would have been fine with Dexter just showing up in Paris as a blood splatter specialist name named Drexler. But it’s the life of a burly man for him.

In any case, it’s now time to start some pondering of our own over what Hall saying “put himself on hold” means in terms of seeing the character return in the future.

These Clever Pokemon Tricks Won't Get You Banned

Not all Pokemon Go players have the time and resources needed to play Pokemon Go as it should be played – and the game’s bugs and lack of a proper Pokemon tracker don’t make things any easier – so it’s understandable that some players are resorting to cheats. After all, catching them all is so appealing! But Niantic doesn’t like cheaters, and it recently revealed that bans could become permanent when it catches players cheating. That makes using third-party Pokemon Go mapping apps, GPS spoofing and other sophisticated hacks rather risky.

On the other hand, there are still plenty of cheats out there that work and won’t get you banned.

These aren’t necessarily as “dangerous” as faking your location in Pokemon or using a jailbreak iPhone app to pretended that you’re walking the map when in fact you haven’t even left the house. These are tricks that power users have figured out after extensive playing, and “cheats” that work because of the way the game is designed.

If you’re just starting out, then you may want to grab Pikachu as your first Pokemon. Just ignore the first five things that pop up and Pikachu will appear. A similar Easter Egg concerns the evolution of Eevee. Name an Eevee “Rainer” and you’ll evolve it into Vaporeon, “Pyro” becomes Flareon, and “Sparky” becomes Jolteon. It only works once, so choose wisely.

To level up faster, especially when you’re starting out, keep evolving Pokemon to get experience points. Combine evolution with Lucky Eggs and Incense to double your experience points – there’s also one shady trick that lets you extend the duration of some of these perks, but it might be the kind of cheat that’ll get you banned so we won’t explain it here.

One pro tip included in the list concerns Stardust. Definitely don’t use it until you hit level 12 or 15, as you’ll waste it on Pokemon that won’t be useful when your Trainer level increases.

Another thing you should know about is that the gym battles aren’t really balanced. They appear to favor the attacker, and you’ll be able to win each one if you know one important thing: the yellow “flash” that appears on the screen signals an incoming attack from the opponent, which means you can safely dodge and avoid it. Then hit back. Rinse and repeat until you’ve won.

GOT Season 7 Trailer. WHAT JUST HAPPENED!

With season 6 ending with such a bang, it's only been a few days since we finished watching the electrifying Winds of Winter & we're suffering a severe case of GOT withdrawal. With season 7 trailer just being aired, here are a few speculations that are going viral. 

Jon snow

We all know that Jon snow is not his real name and he is not a stark . There are various theories revolving around that. Is it true that R+L=J? Where R stands for either Rhaeger or for Robert Baratheon. Others believe that Jon is a still secret Targaryen, but that it’s not Rhaegar: it’s Aerys II Targaryen, Rhaegar’s father who’s better known as the Mad King. Or maybe Jon is full-on Stark: a product of incest between Lyanna and Ned. Well, we all have to wait for that truth to be disclosed

Arya Stark

Having Arya miraculously survive the severe stab wounds, murder the Waif, and declare to the Faceless Man she was Arya Stark, not no one, has only kicked speculations into a higher gear. It is being said that the faceless men never intended for Arya to truly become one of them. Instead, their aim was to train her only to get back to Westeros to act as their agent there. Also, that Arya never survived the wounds and waif succeeded in killing her. With Arya killing Frey, who murdered her mother and brother, is she going to kill Cersei next?

Cersei Lannister

With Cersei burning king's landing to the ground and her son Tommen committing suicide, will she finally be the queen sitting on the Iron Throne?. The spoilers are that she is going to make a cruel, chaotic and crazy-as-hell ruler. Forget Aerys II: we reckon Cersei could give the Mad King a run for his money any day. Her chances of being murdered are also very high,rumour has it that it’s going to be through Arya or Jamie.

Mother of Dragons

With Daenerys leaving for Westeros with her dragons, army, and a fleet of ships, speculation says to execute wedding plans would mean death for the mother of dragons. Another popular theory is that she wins the throne and falls in love with Jon snow only to find out later that they are blood-related.

Well, one thing is for sure that season 7, which is expected to release next summer is going to be the most exciting season with soo many mysteries being unlocked.

5 Hidden Secrets From The Sets of Big Bang Theory

In 2007, the big bang theory debuted on CBS. But the sitcom didn’t explode in popularity until reruns hit syndication. Since then, its season premieres have consistently ranked near the top of network TV ratings, and reruns dominate the list of most watched cable shows.

But for any shows this huge, there’s bound to be some big bangs behind the scenes too: 

  1. The Pilot Reconceptualization: The show that’s aired for nearly a decade is very different from the original pilot. Jim Parsons as Sheldon was originally a horn dog. His character was changed to someone mystified by romance. Kaley Cuoco’s Penny was also absent. Instead, the attractive neighbor was the unfriendly Katie, played by Amanda Walsh. Johnny Galecki wore suits instead of hoodies. CBS passed but asked creators Chuck Lorre & Bill Prady to rework the show and send another pilot. They did and made it to air in 2007.

  2. The Bernadette Vocalization: Bernadette's mousy, high-pitched voice, and loud moments of screaming rage didn’t come naturally to actress Melissa Rauch. Although she doesn’t sound like Bernadette in real life, she took inspiration from her own mother.

  3. The Paycheck Extortion: In 2014, production of the show’s eighth season was delayed due to contract renegotiations between the cast and warner brothers. Ultimately, CBS renewed the show for an unprecedented keeping it on the air through 2017. Jim Parsons, Johnny Galecki & Kaley Cuoco each secured a salary of 1 Million $ per episode. Meanwhile, Simon Helberg and Kunal Nayyar re-negotiated their new contracts collectively, ended up with salaries of around 750,000$ per episode. A settlement was reached the day before their old contracts expired, but the duo would have reportedly been written out of the show if they hadn’t accepted the deal.

  4. The Relationship Obfuscation: Kaley Cuoco has often appeared in tabloids due to her brief marriage to tennis player Ryan Sweeting. Still, she avoided the spotlight during her previous relationship, even though it was with a noteworthy co-star. Cuoco and johnny dated from 2007 to 09 and kept it a secret not only from the media but from the big bang cast and crew.

  5. The soft kitty misappropriation: Co-creator Bill Prady says he heard Sheldon's special calm down song at his daughter’s preschool. Assuming it was public domain, he added it to the show, where it’s been used multiple times and on big bang merchandise. In 2015, however, the family of a teacher named Edith Newlin sued CBS. Allegedly, the show lifted lyrics from Newlin’s 1937 song “Warm Kitty”. The main difference? The original 1937 lyrics switch the first two lines from the song we know now and love. The whole thing could make for one rich kitty.

Do leave us a comment to let us know what you’ve heard about the cast and crew of the big bang theory.

Here's Why You Should Always Carry A Notebook With Yourself

Sir Richard Branson, the billionaire founder of Virgin Group, is known for his wild lifestyle. Branson may be 64, but you can still find him kite surfing in the Caribbean and developing a commercial space airline called Virgin Galactic.

So when he proclaims a technique to be “one of the most powerful tools” he has in his “bag of business tricks,” as he does in his new book The Virgin Way: Everything I Know About Leadership, you’d probably expect something esoteric or complicated.

But, in fact, his secret weapon is carrying an old-fashioned notebook with him everywhere he goes.

It’s a habit he says he developed growing up with dyslexia. If he were to have a chance at remembering anything, he says, he needed to write it down. And as a businessman, it’s what he chooses to write down that’s made his deceptively simple habit so valuable.

He says in his new book that one of his favorite things to do as chairman of Virgin is to be his own customer and take notes from his own observations and questions. For example, when he took a Virgin America flight out of Las Vegas on a hot day, he made note of how both he and other customers had no desire to use the routine hot towel that an employee presented to him. He read his observations to the proper people and got the hot towels for similar flights changed to cold ones.

The handwritten note habit has come in handy in management, negotiation, and even legal situations—he’s submitted his notebooks as evidence in lawsuits. He writes:

“A typical situation would be when someone says, ‘Well, Richard, as I recall when we last spoke in early March, we agreed to get a draft proposal to you by the end of April,’ and they are totally discombobulated by a response of, ‘Well, no, at least not according to my notes of our last conversation. At 3:15 p.m. on 7 February you promised you were going to have the complete business plan to us by 31 March at the latest.’ Nailed!”

Branson particularly prefers putting pen onto paper rather than finger onto keyboard because a sheet of paper doesn’t have tempting distractions to divert his attention in a meeting.

And he also uses notes for his own amusement. When his daughter Holly was little, he would make note of all the funny things she said, like “Daddy, Daddy, I know what sex is! And you and Mummy have done it twice,” he writes.

He says those archived notebooks came in handy on his daughter’s wedding day.
