World’s most beautiful clock towers

A welcoming view in San Francisco San Francisco’s Ferry Building, a Beaux-Arts building with a 245ft-tall tower, was the city’s primary point for arrivals and departures between 1898 and the late 1930s, when the Golden Gate and Bay bridges were built. Inside, a 660ft-long skylit atrium that once provided access to ferries now houses shops and restaurants, including Blue Bottle Coffee and the Asian restaurant Slanted Door. It is especially crowded on Saturday mornings when a farmers’ market takes over the space in front and in the rear of the building, overlooking the bay. (Julie Clarke-Bush) Colombia's grand gateway From a mosque-like tower in Malaysia to one of London’s most iconic structures, these five landmarks were designed to stand the test of time. In Colombia, the four-sided Torre del Reloj gate grants access to the most charming part of Cartagena – a walled section of 18th-century mansions, leafy squares and street cafes. The tower and clock were added in 1888; in the foreground, a statue of city founder Pedro de Heredia keeps watch. (Guillermo Vasquez/Flickr) Prague’s macabre mainstay Clockmaker Hanuš, who perfected Prague’s Old Town Hall Tower in 1490, was supposedly blinded so that he wouldn’t make a more beautiful version elsewhere. As the perfect revenge, Hanuš stopped the clock from functioning, and it was 100 years before someone would figure out how to repair it. The clock is known for its 12 marching apostles; a skeleton on the right, depicting Death, starts the show by pulling on a string and looking at his other hand, in which he holds an hourglass. Then, two windows open, allowing the apostles to make their moves. A magnificent late-Gothic door in the adjacent house serves as the main entrance to the Old Town Hall. (Reed Kaestner/Corbis) Moorish notes in Malaysia Completed in 1897 by the British colonial administration, the Sultan Abdul Samad Building anchors Kuala Lumpur’s Merdeka Square. Its Moorish style can be attributed to the mosques that architect AC Norman observed while in India. The Union Jack flag was replaced by the Malaysian flag on 31 August 1957, and many national events have taken place here since. (Boris Henriot) A storied sight in London “Big Ben” was originally a nickname used for the gargantuan bell inside the London clock tower. These days, the moniker refers to the bell, the clock face and the 315ft tower too – though the beloved icon was officially renamed the Elizabeth Tower in 2012, as part of Queen Elizabeth II’s Diamond Jubilee celebration. Built from the inside out, the stone and granite tower got its finishing touch with the clock tower’s installation in 1859. The cast-iron minute hands proved too heavy, so they were replaced with today’s lighted copper hands. (Paul Hardy/Corbis)

Hey that's San Francisco! My home! =)
@yinofyang I am glad that you like it . Do you have any clock towers near yoour place ?
@nollakolla hey that makes sense though that Clock towers was used in the past that people could follow the church time. I remember seeing the documentary about that in Brugge .
I really love clock towers. This is a great card, Tap! They're beautiful and have so much history.
I think it was something related to religigous I think. As I remember a tour I had in Brugge, belgium, they said that since the town so small, and as this clock tower helps everybody in town would be able to know what time was it of the day. So they could follow their work. Or they could come to church. ! It maybe true or not, need to find out more

These Street Vendors Engage In A Battle Of The Bods.
So a few months ago, I wrote a card about the McDonald's Goddess, a Taiwanese fast food cashier that took the Internet by storm for her good looks and adorable sing-songy voice. Today, it was brought to my attention that there's options out there for the ladies too - in the form of hunky street vendors. Ladies, meet the guys serving up your streetside groceries with a little extra eye candy. (Warning: There's no way to write this without sounding like an issue of TeenBeat magazine. Gentlemen, please divert your eyes.) So the trend hit the Internet all thanks to Chen Yi-Tin, a Taiwanese part-time model turned street vendor that had his picture shared by women in Taipei after spotting him selling bean curd in a local market. Since blowing up the Chinese blogging site Weibo last summer, Yi-Tin's career's been on serious lock, grabbing him plenty of Instagram followers and campaigns modeling anything from fitness clothes to underwear. (GET ITTTT.) Not to be outdone, Malaysia soon called everyone's attention to their own male-model-slash-vendor Jordan Yeoh, who saw what Yi-Tin was going in Taiwan and thought, "Hey, why not go help my aunt and uncle with their durian stand?" And then, boom. Overnight Internet celebrity and fitness guru. Asia's social media game doesn't mess around. If you don't know what it is, durian is a fruit that smells a whole lot like used diapers. So I guess if your durian shake can still bring the ladies to the yard even though you smell kind of like where Chiquita Banana would go to die, you must be really, really, ridiculously good-looking. The vendor dude 'arms race' (pun intended) continued with Wang Xiang Hong, another Taipei native who's been pulling in droves of female consumers. As a busy college student, Xiang Hong never modeled professionally and was simply helping out a friend whose fruit stand was understaffed for a few months. However, Xiang Hong did get to enjoy a brief modeling career before enlisting in the military shortly after. Lastly, there's a Taiwanese cake shop employee simply known as "Cake Boy". (It sounds better in Taiwanese, I'm sure. Trust.) He first caught local attention after picking up part-time work at a streetside cake shop while attending college for sports, his specialty being volleyball. He began to go viral on Weibo after women visiting the shop noted his good looks pose something of a striking resemblance to various Korean pop stars popular in the region. (I know we've got some K-Pop fans here on Vingle. Do you ladies agree?) So what do you guys think of the hunky street vendor trend? Is it shameful vanity or smart business?

Ball Pit Parties For Adults?!
The average American adult might forget where they put their car keys, but they just as reliably remember playing in a ball pit when they were young. Be it at Chuck E. Cheese's or some rich kid's birthday, ball pits were seriously the pinnacle of the party - and no one seems to remember that more than Forward Motion founder Ryan Lum. Forward Motion, a non-profit that specializes in making 'bucket list'-level experiences come true, wanted to give San Francisco-based adults an opportunity to relive their childhood - with very grown-up twist - by throwing a ball pit party at a bar. (Kind of like your standard ball pit - but WITH BOOZE!) Apparently, the event was a year in the making - as it took a little time to fundraise enough money for the 40,000 ball pit balls used. However, once the ball pit party finally happened this month, it was a HUGE success - with swarms of people coming in and out to dive into the ball pit, cocktail in hand. "I talked to many of the attendees as they left the ball pit with a huge smile on their faces. I overheard people saying things like, 'my inner child is so happy right now'. People loved the idea [and] wanted to know if there will be more." For those of you who are in the San Francisco area and want to get in on this action, another ball pit party is planned to be held at the Monarch nightclub next month. However, never fear, everyone else. Forward Motion hopes to bring more ball pit parties to other adults-with-inner-children in the US. In the meantime, at least we have this sweet video of the action, right? Who would be down for a ball pit party? What other childhood things do you wish you could do all over again? Personally, I'd be down for making goodie bags with candy and cute erasers and stickers for all of my birthday parties. I mean, why do goodie bags even stop at a certain age?

7 tips for doing business with buyers of European spices and herbs
7 tips for doing business with buyers of European spices and herbs? 1. Respect cultural differences but do not think of your customers What is acceptable in your culture can create conflict in another culture, and vice versa. To build strength through cultural diversity in international cooperation, you need to manage expectations. The most relevant cultural aspects are listed below. However, please note that this is an exaggeration and may not be true of any business organization in Europe. Each company has its own culture, and everyone is different and cannot be made universal. It is safe to say that well-known retailers in the field of spices and herbs are generally professional, pragmatic, and sophisticated. Established retailers know the market well and have a good knowledge of product ranges and various quality features. They will enjoy contacting you and prioritizing technology. One of the best ways to increase your business communication skills and culture in general is to invest in training and coaching. A common trap in communication workshops is that they often miss out on individual approaches and are unaware of participants' progress. The way we communicate is part of our personality and cannot be changed by simple training sessions, no matter how interesting. So, use social psychology, and combine training with psychological training to get the best results. Language and values Your sales staff should have excellent English language instruction. This will be enough to contact many European purchasing managers. However, buyers from other countries appreciate it if you can speak to them in their native language. This is the case with Spanish-, French-, Italian-, Portuguese- and German-speaking countries. For example, France is showing significant growth in the importation of vanilla from Madagascar (a French-speaking country with a common heritage). Another example is Spain: they import more than 90% of European shares of dried peppers from Peru (a Spanish-speaking country with a common heritage). Structure and order At various levels, potential buyers in western and northern Europe are highly organized and like to plan everything in detail to avoid unexpected changes and delays. However, there is little difference between targeted markets. For example, in the Netherlands and France, business meetings are usually organized but not overly formal, starting and ending with a little talk. On the other hand, potential customers from southern European countries such as Spain and Italy will be more flexible and time-saving. Structure and order are also less effective during crowded trade events such as ANUGA or SIAL, when meeting times are very limited. Communication style When approaching European buyers of spices and herbs for the first time, it is important to be brief and to present quickly but clearly with your promise. This is especially important when you meet them during trade fairs. The communication style of some communities is seen as ‘circular’: people tend to provide detailed information on a key topic, which is often only mentioned at the end of a conversation. This is in contrast to the 'direct' communication style of Germany, Austria or the Netherlands and many other European countries, where people often start with the story and come to the details later. Another important aspect of communication style is emotional expression. For example, people in Britain, Germany, or the Dutch often monitor and control the amount of emotion they display at business meetings. On the other hand, in markets such as Eastern Europe, Spain, Italy, and France, emotional reactions are often the result of laughter, smiles, anger, or even spitting. Personal space is seen differently in southern Europe. People tend to be closer together than in western Europe, but this depends on the closeness between them. According to a recent study, Brits prefer to keep a meter between them and a stranger, 80cm from an acquaintance and just over 50cm from a close or close friend. Sovereignty in the workplace The power level between a manager (team leader, company owner) and a subordinate (team member, employee) are the characteristics of more companies than countries. At most spice and herbal remedies, the purchasing manager will not make a final decision regarding your gift before consulting with their manager. One of the reasons for this is to respect the relationship between the current providers and the owner of the company. It is quite common, especially for small companies, for sales activities to be carried out by sales managers, while import and purchase services are used by the owners or senior management. There are still other royal preferences related to company and country level. For example, their respective positions and powers are better defined in France and Germany than in the Netherlands. Also, the French and Germans use more decent manners in business situations. In some asset companies, subordinates tend to give higher status to their superiors. Potential Dutch customers may see this as a lack of performance, as they expect everyone to contribute to the meeting. . Tips: Get used to shaking hands. Physical contact, such as a handshake, is not uncommon in many Asian countries. This may make businessmen from other countries feel uncomfortable shaking hands. A strong handshake shows confidence and is preferred over a soft handshake, which may indicate indifference or disloyalty. However, as the Covid-19 epidemic, instead of shaking hands, many people switch to elbows or avoid contact altogether, using for example wai bow or heart donations. Speak clearly and clearly, but not too much. Words should be kept in a comfortable and pleasant volume. German, Dutch, and British customers may be uncomfortable with a loud voice, which may seem intimidating.
