15 Most Fashionable Cufflinks For The Stylish Gentlemen
For centuries, cuff links have truly distinguished gentlemen. Anybody can button up a shirt and two cuffs, but it’s not just anybody who takes the time to go the extra mile. Cuff links are completely voluntary elements of style, and that’s what gives them such prominence. Sure, some see them as stuffy, unnecessary and bourgeois; they are those who never amount to much. Cuff links provide men the chance to refine their style. Given that they are really adornments, they are almost completely cosmetic, providing much more form than function. That doesn’t discount their place in men’s fashion; it actually carves it out. Aside from the watch, which is still a utilitarian piece, cuff links are the one wardrobe component that indicates attention to detail. You can’t deny the impact they have on both a button-up shirt and a classic suit. For those reasons and more, cuff links are the true sign of
style and civility.

How to become a Boss
To Be A Boss, You Must Think Like A Boss
A lot of people like to be the boss, to have their own business. But very few make it. The rest become workers. How can you be part of the first group? What does it take? Certain mentality’s prepare you to be a successful entrepreneur.
1.Don’t be stuck in a comfortable routine
Many people get caught in their own routine. They get up in the morning, drive to work, return home in the evening, have dinner, watch TV, and go to sleep. They repeat this process every day,
comfortable with the routine — and the check they receive every other week. This sort of mentality is counterproductive to advancing in life. And isn’t exciting either. You should always look for ways to improve your life, replace your comfortable routine with something exciting.
Starting your own business is a way to go.
2. Always search for new business opportunities
Every new business begins with the discovery and exploitation of a new opportunity — for example, a consumer need that is either unfilled or can be served better that it is served now. And it advances with the development of the right business model to address that opportunity. That’s why you should always look for new business opportunities, beginning with your office, home, neighborhood, or community. Then, come up with the right idea to address it.
3. Be a doer rather than a dreamer
A lot of people have good business ideas that they plan on executing, but they make these plans conditional on some catalytic event, ie a
perfect time to make this happen. In reality, there is no perfect time to do things. That’ why you should be proactive. Be a doer, not a dreamer.
4. Do whatever it takes
Don’t let small roadblocks stop you.Stick with the business idea, and execute. Take the steps that will turn your idea into a real business. That’s all that matters in the end — but it isn’t easy. It takes
patience, persistence and discipline to stay focused — patience to overcome the hurdles that stand between you and your goal; persistence to overcome the failures, setbacks, and temptations that may take you off course; and discipline to play the game right.
5. Have the right reasons to start a business
There is a misconception that business owners make more money and work less than people who work for somebody else. That’s not true, at least in the beginning. Besides, these are the wrong reasons to go into business. The right reason is to develop a product or a service that make a difference in people’s lives, as Steve Jobs, Bill Gates and many other celebrated entrepreneurs did in the past. And most important of all, you should enjoy what you are doing.
6. Be self-motivated
When you are a worker, somebody else—your boss — has defined the work to be done. That person tells you what to do and when to do
it, and keeps up with deadlines. When you are the boss, you must do all these things. That’s why you should be self-motivated, know what
you are doing, be punctual, and work out all the details.
7. Get in the right psychological state
Put yourself through a ruthless psychological test to discover your inner deficiencies, and do what you must to get rid of them before they pollute your relations with partners, associates and subordinates

Hennessy Cognac: The French Taste
Cognac is a French origin beverage which is a variety of Brendy. It is getting the name from the French city Cognac which it is generally produced. For a brendy to get a name of Cognac, production methods must meet strict and certain legal requirements. The brandy must be distilled twice in copper pot stills and aged
minimum two years in oak barrels. The cognac has the same structure of aging whiskies or wines. Most of the cognacs has been aged in oak barrels much more the legal requirement.
It is also called ‘Eau de vie’ in french which means the water of life. This is created by the distillation of the white wine which is very dry, thin and acidic. It can be made of only strict list of grape types which is called virtually undrinkable and very appropriate to be distilled and aging.
After pressing the grapes , the juice is left to ferment two or three weeks by adding wild yeasts which converts sugar to alcohor, neither sugar nor sulfur may be added. This fermented wine is around %7 or %8 alcoholic beverage and at this point the distillation period starts which raises to alcohol percentage of the spirit to %70. Distillation must be twice in the copper stills.
After the distillation the aging process starts. The
aging takes place in French oak barrels minimum of two years, during this two years the alcohol
percentage decreases to %40 by evaporation of the water and alcohol.
There is mainly four grades to explain the quality
degree of Cognac. These are;
V.S (very special), which is at least two years stored in cask
V.S.O.P (very superior old pale or RESERVE), which is at least four years stored in cask
X.O (extra old or NAPOLEON), which is at least 6
years stored in cask
Hors d’age (beyond age) is BNIC states is equal to XO but as a marketing it designates high quality product beyond the official age scale.
Around 88000 hectares area in six different named regions is producing grapes to create this cognac taste in France.
The most well known brands are Courvoisier, Hennessy, Martel and Remy Martin. Remy martin is one of the oldest Cognac brands and it is founded around early 18th century but the world’s largest cognac exporter is Hennessy which is delivering %40 of total cognac amount all over the world.
The best way to drink cognac is drinking neat. I advise you not to mix it with anything even do not put ice. Drink it straight and feel the taste while it goes from your mouth to your stomach.
The Right Dose of Exercise for a Longer Life
Exercise has had a Goldilocks problem, with experts debating just how much exercise is too little, too much or just the right amount to improve health and longevity. Two new, impressively large-scale studies provide some clarity, suggesting that the ideal dose of exercise for a long life is a bit more than many of us currently believe we should get, but less than many of us might expect. The studies also found that prolonged or intense exercise is unlikely to be harmful and could add years to people’s lives.
No one doubts, of course, that any amount of exercise is better than none. Like medicine, exercise is known to reduce risks for many diseases and premature death.
But unlike medicine, exercise does not come with dosing instructions. The current broad guidelines from governmental and health organizations call for 150 minutes of moderate exercise per week to build and maintain health and fitness.
But whether that amount of exercise represents the least amount that someone should do — the minimum recommended dose — or the ideal amount has not been certain.
Scientists also have not known whether there is a safe upper limit on exercise, beyond which its effects become potentially dangerous; and whether some intensities of exercise are more effective than others at prolonging lives.
So the new studies, both of which were published last week in JAMA Internal Medicine, helpfully tackle those questions.
In the broader of the two studies, researchers with the National Cancer Institute, Harvard University and other institutions gathered and pooled data about people’s exercise habits from six large, ongoing health surveys, winding up with information about more than 661,000 adults,
most of them middle-aged.
Using this data, the researchers stratified the adults by their weekly exercise time, from those who did not exercise at all to those who worked out for 10 times the current recommendations or more (meaning that they exercised moderately for 25 hours per week or more).
Then they compared 14 years’ worth of death records for the group.
They found that, unsurprisingly, the people who did not exercise at all were at the highest risk of early death.
But those who exercised a little, not meeting the recommendations but doing something, lowered their risk of premature death by 20 percent.
Those who met the guidelines precisely, completing 150 minutes per week of moderate exercise, enjoyed greater longevity benefits and 31 percent less risk of dying during the 14-year period compared with those who never exercised.
The sweet spot for exercise benefits, however, came among those who tripled the recommended level of exercise, working out moderately, mostly by walking, for 450 minutes per week, or a little more than an hour per day. Those people were 39 percent less likely to die
prematurely than people who never exercised.
At that point, the benefits plateaued, the researchers found, but they never significantly declined. Those few individuals engaging in 10
times or more the recommended exercise dose gained about the same reduction in mortality risk as people who simply met the guidelines. They did not gain significantly more health bang for all of those additional hours spent sweating. But they also did not increase their risk of dying young.
The other new study of exercise and mortality reached a somewhat similar conclusion about intensity. While a few recent studies have intimated that frequent, strenuous exercise might contribute to early mortality, the new study found the reverse.
For this study, Australian researchers closely examined health survey data for more than 200,000 Australian adults, determining how much
time each person spent exercising and how much of that exercise qualified as vigorous, such as running instead of walking, or playing competitive singles tennis versus a sociable doubles game.
Then, as with the other study, they checked death statistics. And as in the other study, they found that meeting the exercise guidelines substantially reduced the risk of early death, even if someone’s exercise was moderate, such as walking.
But if someone engaged in even occasional vigorous exercise, he or she gained a small but not unimportant additional reduction in mortality.
Those who spent up to 30 percent of their weekly exercise time in vigorous activities were 9 percent less likely to die prematurely than people who exercised for the same amount of time but always moderately, while those who spent more than 30 percent of their exercise time in strenuous activities gained an extra 13 percent
reduction in early mortality, compared with people who never broke much of a sweat. The researchers did not note any increase in mortality, even among those few people completing the largest amounts of intense exercise.
Of course, these studies relied on people’s shaky recall of exercise habits and were not randomized experiments, so can’t prove that any
exercise dose caused changes in mortality risk, only that exercise and death risks were associated.
Still, the associations were strong and consistent and the takeaway message seems straightforward, according to the researchers.
Anyone who is physically capable of activity should try to “reach at least 150 minutes of physical activity per week and have around 20 to
30 minutes of that be vigorous activity,” says Klaus Gebel, a senior research fellow at James Cook University in Cairns, Australia, who led
the second study. And a larger dose, for those who are so inclined, does not seem to be unsafe, he said.
