Windows 10 Upgrade Is Free

Windows 10 Upgrade Is Free Even For Pirates

Windows 10 will be free announced Microsoft which came as a surprise to the industry as the Microsoft since its inception of its Operating system Windows have been charging fees for installing and using its operating system. Not only Microsoft is offering a free upgrade to its new operating system windows 10 to the people who have purchased it license but it is also offering a free to pirates(using a pirated copy of Windows).

Although this may have a dent in earning of Microsoft but its policy makers better know how will Microsoft earn its revenue. One of the reason for this drastic step can be that most of the notebooks are coming with free operating systems like Chromebook and others. Microsoft policy makers may have think that their operating system may lose market share if they keep on offering it for any price. Most of the people in world specially in third world countries like China, India, Pakistan and Indonesia use pirated copies of Windows operating systems. In some countries even 1 percent of the copies of Windows used are not original.

Another reason is that Microsoft may be switching its revenue model and also making its pirate users into legitimate users. As far as revenue is concerned Microsoft may shift its strategy to advertisement or hardware based model. People who use a pirated copy also are prone to get more malware as they do not get updates , patches and fixes from Microsoft. Microsoft Windows 10 is expected to come in the summer of 2015 and they users have to run an upgrade if they want to upgrade their operating system.

Another reason for giving free Windows 10 to users is that Microsoft policy and long term goal is to increase its user base and may offer some add on piece of software which users will have to purchase. Recently Microsoft have also announced that it will be discontinue its widely used browser (Internet Explorer). This browser was a part of Windows since last 15 years and this sudden discontinuation of IE in future windows releases also gives us clue that software giants are changing its policies. Also according to recent surveys the IE was losing to its rivalry like Google chrome and Firefox. Google Chrome is now the widely used web browser for desktop users and its user base is increasing .

Last year Microsoft make it free its operating systems for many devices using a smaller screen size as these devices were mostly low end devices. Also it makes its Windows free for some types of laptops recently and now its plan to offer its Windows 10 completely free will go a long way to determine the future of this company and its investors and is being viewed critically by other software vendors.

Facebook Messenger Payments

Facebook Messenger Payments

Facebook have enabled its users to pay their friends via messenger online. With the help of this feature users using their messenger can now pay instantly. To start with this service will be used for personal payments but it may be used for business payments some time in future. Other companies which does offer online payments are PayPal, Ali-pay, Google and Amazon. While this move will be a pleasant surprise for Facebook users it is not a good news for companies like Paypal which solely depends on online payments for its business.

It is also worth noting that to start with the Facebook will offer this service or free without any commissions. Facebook may impose a little fee in future but right now there is no fees on using this service. Facebook already used to take payments in the past when any one want to advertise on its network so they have an existing infrastructure for accepting payments.

The person who want to send payment have to do it from his credit card or debit card. The real strength of Facebook is its user base which exceeds one billion users. In many countries cellular providers does provide money transfer services and Facebook can also be a competition to them once it expands its online payment services all over the globe. Currently Facebook messenger payment services is only available in US.

Facebook also acquired a lot of land recently in Menlo Park, California and this shows that they are definitely planning to expand in to other domains and businesses. This move show that they are aggressive and with their large user base it is pretty easy for them to jump into any business and due to their user power they will have a definite edge.

If Facebook decides it wants to expand its services it could do it so that even the foreign workers who use to send money via Money gram, Westernunion or other services shift and use Facebook messenger payments rather than the existing method its using.

  • Fruits:

Fruit provides vitamins, minerals, fibre, antioxidants and water, which helps a body to stay healthy. Each fruit helps protecting the body in different own ways. It is important to choose a variety of fruits every day.
A kid should be encouraged to eat a variety of fresh, canned, frozen or dry fruits, rather than fruit juice. If a kid drinks juice, make sure it’s 100 percent pure and limit servings.
Eating fruit may also help protect against all kind of diseases such as heart disease, stroke and some types of cancers.

If you eat a variety of foods from each of these groups, your body will receive all the nutrients and vitamins it needs to function. That is why we need to eat a range of foods from all the food groups.

Risks & Reasons of Hypertension

Reasons of Hypertension:

Hypertension or high blood pressure, common disease these days also known as arterial hypertension, is a condition in which the arteries have persistently elevated blood pressure. It may lead to many health problems and may increase the risk of heart disease and stroke.
The term Hypertension means “Silent killer” since it has no initial symptoms for years but can lead to a long term disease and complications silently.
Every time the human heart beats, it pumps blood to the whole body through the arteries.
Blood pressure is the force of blood pushing up against the blood vessel walls. The harder the heart has to pump, the narrower your arteries and higher your blood pressure.

Nowadays technology has made our lives so simple that even Blood Pressure can be measured at home with an instrument known as Sphymomanometer.
There are 2 readings given as numbers on this instrument.
The top number is called the systolic blood pressure. The bottom number is called the diastolic blood pressure.
For example, 120 over 80
(mmHg).
where 120 represents the systolic measurement (peak pressure in the arteries) and 80 represents the diastolic measurement (minimum pressure in the arteries).

One or both of these numbers can be high. Normal and high pressure are defined as follows.

  • Normal blood pressure is when your blood pressure is less than 120/80.

  • High blood pressure (hypertension) is when your blood pressure is

    • 140/90 mmHg (Stage 1)

    • 160/100 mmHg (Stage 2)

  • If blood pressure numbers are 120/80 or higher, but below 140/90, it is called pre-hypertension.

Hypertension can also be classified as essential or secondary.
Essential hypertension is the term for
high blood pressure with unknown cause. It accounts for about 95% of cases. Secondary hypertension is the term for high blood pressure with a known cause, such as tumors, kidney failure, heart failure, aneurysm etc.

Causes of hypertension are usually unknown.
Several factors that have been highly associated with the condition include:

  • Smoking.

  • Obesity.

  • Diabetes.

  • Stress or anxious.

  • You are obese.

  • Aging.

  • Lack of Physical activities.

  • Drinking alcohol.

  • Over weight.

  • You take High levels of Salt.

  • Genetics – A family history of having hypertension problems.

These are unknown causes of hypertension – Essential hypertension.
It is said that your blood pressure level gets high as you get older. This is because your blood vessels get stiff as you age. Due to this your Blood pressure level increases and your chance of having a stroke, heart attack, heart failure, kidney disease, or early death.

Secondary hypertension is basically caused by a medical condition that is known cause which includes:

  • Birth control pills.

  • Kidney disease.

  • Tumors.

  • Heart failure.

One more and the dangerous form of hypertension is Malignant hypertension. It may happen because of:

  • Severe headache.

  • Nausea.

  • Vomiting.

  • Confusion.

  • Nosebleeds.

60 million people worldwide suffer from high blood pressure.
Uncontrolled blood pressure may be responsible for many cases of death, disability resulting from heart diseases.
According to research, “the higher your blood pressure, higher the risk”.
So the risk of dying of a heart attack is directly linked to high blood pressure, particularly systolic hypertension.

While cardiac disease only refers to disorders of just the heart.

This is called as coronary artery disease or coronary heart disease which happens slowly over time and is the main reason why people have heart attacks.
Other diseases might happen because the heart might not pump well, or because of the valves in the heart which can even cause heart failure.

Heart disease nowadays may be a leading cause of death, but that doesn’t means that we need to accept it as fate. It is a major cause of disability. Some risk factors such as family history, age, gender also have a big impact about having this disease.
