Then, the countrys property bubble burst. The bank lost huge losses and so did Quinn. The government nationalized the bank to save it, wiping away all of Quinns investments. They then seized ownership of Quinns companies and forced him off the board – leaving his family with less than 15,000 dollars across 3 bank accounts…

Naruatsu Baba

This Japanese businessman founded in Colopl in 2008 – known for making some of the earliest mobile games in the country. The rise of the phone gaming sent the company soaring to new heights and by 2016, Baba had a net worth of 1.2 billion dollars. Then, their flagship games of White Cat Tennis and White Cat Project started to lag in sales. Company shares fell 38% – wiping over half a billion dollars off Babas net worth.

 Eike Batista

In 2012, he was the richest man in Brazil and 7th on the planet with an estimated worth of $35 billion. He amassed his fortune through Brazil’s natural resources, mainly mining, oil and gas. Disaster struck when one of his oil fields proved to have a lot less oil in it than originally thought. His investors lost confidence, the company couldn’t keep up on its debt payments and by 2013, they filed for bankruptcy. In the space of a year, his $35 billion worth is significantly smaller…

And then, in 2008, the banking crisis hit – and it hit Iceland very hard. He was named as one of the key figures for the collapse of the countrys banking system. At the same time, he was also paying tens of millions in legal fees to defend himself during a bookmaking scandal.

Weird things that actually sold in vending machines

Published

By

They’re so continent and easy to use  until they swallow your money… I’ve probably lost thousands. Now you might think you know vending machines – they sell chocolate, drinks that kinda stuff – oh no, your’e wrong – I’ve got some list of crazy things sold in vending machines t

Used Underwear.

You thought I was exaggerating didn’t you? Japan is the home of many wonderful and weird things – this is definitely on the weird side of things. Many travel writers have visited Tokyo and found vending machines that claim to see used women’s underwear. They come in vacuum sealed packaging and cost 1,000 YEN, about 8 dollars, from machines known as Buruseras. It sounds bizarre and a bit hilarious but some people claim that they should be banned as they are a part of the sexuality of schoolgirls that parts of Japan have turned a blind eye too.

 Live Crabs.

How many vending machines do you know that sell living creatures – these do. They can be found in China where people have taken a liking to eat fresh crabs on the go. They might not look alive but they really are – they are kept at 5-10 degrees leaving them in a dormant state. They cost about 3 dollars and come in special packages called -Crab Villas- that are designed to make the crabs feel like they are in a cave – this apparently helps preserve the flavor. This is all presuming you want to eat one – you might decide that 3 dollars is a pretty good price for a pet crab. Just make sure you never tell it where you got it from…

Toilet Roll.

You’d think that toilet role wouldn’t be a thing you’d need to get if you were out and about unless something has gone seriously wrong. Well, you’re probably from a western country like me then where we take it for granted that public toilets will have toilet paper for you to use. This isn’t the case in some parts of Asia. In Japan, a whole industry has taken advantage of this and you can often find toilet paper vending machines in major cities. So, next time you have that emergency when you’re out and about – you better hope you have some spare change…

Mashed Potatoes.

Have you ever been staring at the chocolate or drinks in a vending machine and wondered – wheres the mashed potatoes? Whats going on? Well then you should probably move to Singapore where they have vending machines exclusively for Mashed Potatoes. Its called the Maggi mashed potato vending machine and it can be found in 7/11 stores there. You put your mashed potato cup under the spout, press the mashed potato button and wait for instant mashed potato with optional gravy. But really, it shouldn’t be an option.

Gold.

Have you ever wanted to buy a solid Gold bar. I don’t mean that chocolate bar we have in the UK, I mean a solid gold bar. In the United Arab Emirates, at the Abu Dabai Hotel, you can find Gold To Go vending machines. Its obviously for incredibly wealthy people who love with an insane amount of money who want to hold on to gold in case certain currencies devalue or the economy crashes.

The machine checks the daily price of gold every 10 seconds through the internet and will then dispense gold bars and coins up to 10 grams in weight. Sometimes I struggle to find change for the bus.

Salad.

I wasn’t sure to put this one on the list but I know some people will find it a bit crazy that there are vending machines in Chicago purely for salad. They start at 7 dollars 99 cents and you can get chicken, tofu, tuna and salmon for a few dollars more. Now, let me get this straight – I think this is a pretty good idea. People always say that good healthy food is hard to come by and the people who made these machines are hoping to change that. Its just crazy that they’re still in the shape of vending machines which we all associate with unhealthy snacks. Would you eat a salad from this?

Lego.

Lego boxes say its for ages 4 – 99 so we can all admit we still love lego until we reach 100. That’s why in Germany – you can sometimes find Lego vending machines, specifically in Munich Train station. It works just like any other vending machine and dispenses whatever the latest Lego series is – perfect for those long train rides. I would probably drop a lot of money into this thing if there was one on the way to work.

Pizza.

Some Italians claim that the rest of the world has ruined pizza and turned it into cheap fast food rubbish. So you might be surprised to know that the world can thank Italy for the Pizza Vending Machine. The Let’s Pizza vending machine literally makes the pizza from scratch. It kneads the dough, applies the sauce, the toppings you selected and then cooks it before finally popping it out at the bottom in a takeaway box. You can choose between Margarita, Salami, Proshootoe and Speck.

Marijuana.

We’re leaving in an age where a lot of western countries debating on whether to legalize marijuana. Some places are already way ahead of everyone else though. In Vancouver, Canada – if you have a doctors permit you can legally buy marijuana from special vending machines. They contain bags of the stuff alongside hash, oil and other extracts. The machines are not often hidden, quite the opposite in fact. However, there’s still a debate on whether or not this is actually legal. Sure, they say that only people with a medical ID can get it  but would it be that hard for anyone else to? Vancouver police have said they’re gonna keep an eye on it, what do you guys think of it all?

I think Ill stick to normal machines though. I’ve been thinking though, what would your dream vending machine contain?

Web design involves creating what the website should look like and how it should work

Published

Today I want to talk to you about the difference between web design and web development. These are two separate roles in the website creation process. Some people do both of them together, but not everyone does, as they do involve a very different skill set for each, and there are many jobs available for both design and development separately as well as together.

Essentially, if you want the short version, web design involves creating what the website should look like and how it should work, and web development involves building that design and bringing it to life as a functioning website.

Let’s go into a little more detail on each of those things. Designing a website involves taking a brief and the information that a client or company wants displayed on a website, and working out the best structure for it. Web designers think a lot about the user’s journey through the site, and arrange the information in a way that means they see the right content at the right time on their journey.

And they also think a lot about making that information really easy to consume. That part of the design process is called user experience, or UX as you may have seen it referred to as, but designers are obviously also responsible for the visual look and feel of the site. And that’s called the user interface, or UI.

What a website looks like is really important because you have to make sure that the design ties in with the company’s brand, and also that the information is easy to read and consume, and it’s just nice to look at. So just like with graphic design, web designers think about typography, about color, positive-negative space, and other design principles like that.

There are many different pieces of software out there you could use to design a website, but none of them are going to do the hard work for you. They’re all just tools to get your ideas down and create a visual file or mock-up to hand to a developer. And we call it a mock-up because it visually looks like a website, but it doesn’t function as one yet. Once the design is completed, that’s generally when the development side starts, and like I said, this involves taking that mock-up and bringing it to life through code so that it functions as a live website that you can put on the internet for people to use.

The base of a website is created using HTML, which organizes the structure of the site in code, and then CSS is used to style the HTML, that base structure, to make it match the colors and shapes of the design that the designer created. There are many different programming languages and not every web developer is going to know them all. They’ll generally have their own few that they specialize in, but HTML and CSS are the basics that you start with.

Developers are responsible not only for making sure that the site functions properly and matches the design, but also that the code is written cleanly so it can load really quickly for the user. And usually developers will use a text editor like Sublime or Brackets to write and edit their code. Hopefully from that explanation you can see what I mean about this being two different skill sets.

Designers need more of an understanding of design principles and creativity to come up with the layout that is unique and answers the client’s brief, and developers focus more on logic-based thinking and an understanding of how code and technology works.

Like I said at the start, there are some people who do have both of these skills, but it’s not essential to know the development side to be a web designer, or to know the design side to be a web developer. What is important though is having a basic understanding of both of those things. I’m a web designer, and I do have a good basic understanding of code, so that I can actually code my websites, but I don’t focus on that as a career because I much prefer the design side, and that’s where I’m best at.

However, having a basic understanding of how the website I’m designing is going to be coded is really useful to my design process, and I always love it when I work with a developer who has a good understanding of design, too, because it means that it’s much easier to work together.
