These cars won’t leave any footprint – in the environment!

The prior month, Mercedes announced their invisible car invention. Invisible automation is science’s breakthrough technology in the coming years, and it’s hard not to love the idea.

My concern with invisible car is safety. Numerous are accidents on pedestrians hit by cars. Imagine it increased because turn off the cars’ visibility – it’s risky and suspenseful to cross the road. It’s like they’ve blinded us and we only have our hearing senses to depend on.

It should not be taken literally though. Invisible car is only a marketing strategy of the ostentatious car brand. They are set to produce their F-cell vehicles in 2014, claiming it as “virtually invisible to the environment”.

The promise is vast – an electric car fueled by hydrogen and emits water vapor as a repercussion. It’s the best economical product I’ve known in years. It thrashed gasoline dependency of motor vehicles, a depleting resource, and used what is abundant to the environment – hydrogen (only the most abundant in the universe!)

It can travel up to 240 miles, the first of its kind, and it’s Mercedes made. I don’t think I’d want to see the pricetag.

But really, this is what invention is all about – making our lives better. And it’s time include mother nature in the equation of our decisions. Gasoline only pollutes our air and even spills in our oceans. Just let it be underground.

Would you drive an invisible car?

It’s crazy how PhotoShop can alter a person’s appearance.

Photoshop is digital’s gift of enhancement. Photos are now easier to save. Got a bad lighting then adjust brightness. Restore your grandma’s pictures and prolong the memory. Even pose with Egypt’s pyramids, Africa’s cats or Palau’s sea of jellyfish without crossing any border. All possible, believable, thanks to Adobe.

It’s an aide to enticing posters, invitations and all. Remember seeing a puffy burger from the menu, but the actual one you’ve got was half its size? The photoshopped burger made you buy it, but really deceptive. It served most, if not all businesses and individuals too.

It’s a fun and fulfilling software to peruse. It’s magical how pimples disappear within seconds, graying hair re-colored, and fat trimmed. A few of that enhancements are acceptable, but to render you to look a different person isn’t neat. It’s not you anymore.

What’s the most editing you did in a photo?

Cheap on labor, excessive on endorsement.

An elegant, dandy pair of Nike shoes would cost you around $70 to $150. Little did the public know that the production cost, meaning the materials, machinery, and rent that Nike spend in making a pair of shoe, is just $12. More intriguingly, the labor was just $2.75, or just 4% of the money the customers pay for a shoe with a check sign.

Workers in the production factory really earn a little percentage, and quite frankly are underpaid.

Most of the cost of the shoes came from advertisements. Tiger Woods, for instance, was paid $20 Million to promote the Nike golf division alone. In 2006, Nike spent $476 Million to get star-studded promotion of their shoes.

This engagement does not only apply to Nike. Before buying the Shape Ups Skechers shoes Kim Kardashian promotes, think of how much the noted Kardashian milks you some money. Just think of the workers who actually WORK and put together the materials to offer comfort for your feet and how they should get the percentage more. And think of how many hungry people will be fed, out of out-of-school children be educated, and millions of lives be improved when these shoe-makers’ cost of advertisement are focused on providing support for them.

Do they really need advertisements? People already know that Nike makes shoes, so why spend millions on promoting it more? We only have a pair of feet. Everytime we buy more than necessary, remember the children who travel to school using worn-out slippers or barefoot across rocky terraces and cross a river, even rivers.

Do you need a celebrity do endorse your shoes?
