History of Shoes

The earliest footwear was essentially sandal-like. It was meant to insulate human feet against the hard, spiky and jaggy surface, snow bound areas like Alaska and blistering hot areas in Middle East.

The oldest surviving pair of shoes is a pair of sandals from California that date to 9,000 years. They are simple sandals made of plant fibres. In the Middle Ages, people wrapped a single piece of hide around the feet and tied it with a leather thong.

Beginning twelfth century, European peasants started wearing sabot, a shoe made of single piece of wood following the example of the Dutch. In England, the sabot was improved upon by clog which had an upper made of fabric while the sole remained wooden.

The French aristocracy introduced pointed shoes, which were designed by Count of Anjou who in fact wanted to hide his own deformed feet. Aristocratic French women started wearing high-heeled shoes in sixteenth century, which led to the introduction of the phrase well-heeled meaning rich women.

Starting 14th century, BC shoes were made by hand using tools used in Egypt such as curved awl, scraper and the chisel-type knife. Later on tools like pincers, hammer, lapstones and a variety of rubbing sticks were also used.

The first industrial unit to mechanize the shoe production was set up in Lynn, Massachusetts in 1760. Jan Matzeliger, a native of Dutch Guiana who immigrated to United States in 1870 helped revolutionize the shoe industry by developing a shoe lasting machine that could attach a sole to the shoe in just one minute. Unfortunately he died a poor man in Lynn, Massachusetts.

Here are two interesting pieces on shoes:

The former First Lady Imelda Marcos of Philippines had around 3,400 pairs of shoes when she fled to Hawaii following the People’s Power Revolution in 1986.

The largest shoe size of 37 was worn by Robert Wadlow, who was the world’s tallest man at 8′ 11″.

Different kinds of shoes

Sports shoes

The earliest sports shoes called Pedila were worn by the sports loving Greeks in Homer’s time in 1000-700 BC. Sports shoes have to be specially designed using different materials to provide comfort and prevent injury. They are designed keeping in view the guidelines fixed by the American Orthopedic Foot & Ankle Society.

Sports shoes have, since 1960s, been generally made in all-purpose sneaker design though there is an overwhelming choice in sneaker type sports shoes.

Slip-lasted shoes are made by stitching the upper part like a moccasin and gluing it with the sole. This method makes for lightweight and flexible shoes with no torsion rigidity.

A board-lasted shoe has “upper” leather or canvas that is sewn to a cardboard like material. It provides more support and control to players with flat feet.

Some shoes are made by combining both the methods. A shoe like this may be a slip-lasted in the front and board-lasted in the back. They provide very good heel control and remain quite flexible as well. They are good for a wide variety of foot types.

Running shoes

Running shoes are designed to provide more cushioning impact, shock absorption and heel control to the runners and joggers They are designed to prevent shin splints, tendinitis, heel pain, stress fractures and other overuse syndromes.

Walking shoes

Sports persons need walking exercises for cardiovascular conditioning for which they need lightweight shoes. They allow extra shock absorption at the heels to reduce heel pain especially under the ball of the foot (the metatarsal area). Some walking shoes have a little rounded sole or “rocker bottom” which helps to move the weight from the heel to the toe.


Changing Scenario of School Shoes

In recession time companies are taking all possible initiative to increase the business volume. Naturally how they may lag behind in school shoes segment.

Education in India has been provided more importance since the beginning of human civilisation. It is mentioned in epics that in ancient times the kids were sent to Gurukul for education for a fix period of time where their all arrangements from education to their food, lodging, etc. were done by the Gurukul administration.

The structures of these educational institutions have been changed with time. Different religions opened study centers according to their faith and traditions. In present time too, there many educational institutions are there according to income diversity in society. These institutions are not only different according to income level but there is many other basis of segmentation. They are government, private, nursery, primary, junior, senior, kendriya vidyalaya, navodaya vidyalaya, etc.

Peoples from different income groups send their children according to their income potential to these institutions. These institutions have their own dress code which is mandatory to fulfill. One of them is shoe. Shoes are the most important part of their dress code.

In ancient times where children use khdaun made from wood for their feet, now many kinds of schools shoes are worn in schools today. In fact a school shoe has its own industry. The diversity of these school shoes are decided by the location, status and rules-regulation of the management of the schools. As in metro cities, fee of the school starts with somewhere Rs. 1500 per month which is Rs. 10,000 per month too in some cases. Often in such schools have rule to wear two-three types’ shoes in a week, for example, regular school shoes, PT shoes, sports shoes, etc.

Similarly, in small cities or town areas too there are different schools which can be diversified easily. The fee of such schools is in range of Rs. 200 per month to Rs. 700-800 per month. Naturally, the guardians of children of such schools will be from different income groups. Also the dress code of such schools will be different. However, in most of such school too there are trend of at least two pair shoes per week.

Also, the schools can be classified according to their administration pattern and financial arrangements, as in private schools the financial arrangement lies in their formulated boards and they fulfill their financial needs by fees. In government schools the financial arrangement and administration are done by the government representatives. It is perception that fee of government schools is not much which is correct to larger extent. Most of the government schools are navodaya vidyalaya, kendriya vidyalaya, inter college, primary schools, etc. which are exists from villages to metro cities. These schools too have their own dress code. However, guardians of the children studying in these belong to lower income group except some exceptions. Shoes of their dress are also accordingly.

In government institutions there is another group i.e. state board of different states. Every state has its own education board operated by state administration and there are many institutions recognised by these boards. Many boards are operating at national level too, as CBSE, ICSE, NCERT, etc. The schools recognised by these schools have their own dress code of their kind. Generally in such schools too there are trend of two pair of shoes in a week.

Apart from all these, now especially in metro cities another kind of school is taking place significantly and that is play-school. The trend of play-school is rapid growing. Generally, in such schools two years old children got admitted where learn while playing. However such schools don’t have the dress code but the children wear shoes which have their own identity in market.

Now many of the companies are engaged in the business implicit in shoes requirement of these schools. Not only tiny and cottage industries but multi nationals are in such companies. Some private institutions properly form a contract with these companies and the shoes of their dress code are available their stores only.

On the other side such government schools which arrange the education as well as fooding, lodging and dress of children, they purchase school shoes in bulk quantity by issuing the tender. Now the Government has implemented a law of mandatory education for children till age of 14 year. So, the Government itself arranges the other needs of the children apart from education. Government itself purchases and distributes the shoes to children.

Most of the footwear companies accept that business of school shoes has its own idenity which has dominance in footwear industry. Many companies announce their new range of school shoes from time to time. In most of these ranges belly shoes fulfill the requirements of girls while shoes made form leather, rexin and canvas cover the boys shoe necessity.

To tap the opportunities in school shoes segment not only small and national level companies but multi-nationals like Nike, Adidas, Bata, etc. are recording their presence. However, the centalisation of these big brands are limited to metro cities as these shoes can be bought by those guardians whose children are studying in highly paid schools. On the other side the shoe requirement of medium and low fee range schools is often filled by many small and national level companies like Relaxo, Lakhani, Paragon, Niio, Columbus, Lancer, etc.

But due to recession, school shoes business too hammered. According to an estimate from September 2008 to now the business volume of school shoes has been decreased. In these circumstances where small companies just follow the innovative and new designs by big international brands and they launch it lower price band in market. But the big companies have their separate research and development department. These departments continually innovate new designs with special features and facilities which are liked in market.

In recession time companies are taking all possible initiative to increase the business volume. Naturally how they may lag behind in school shoes segment. Hence every footwear company either big or small is launching new range of school shoes.


The History of Social Media Since 1994

The story and history of Social Media
The history of social media is an important milestone for business and websites. Social networking may seem like a fairly new marvel on the Internet with Twitter and Facebook being the two most popular, but in reality, social is not and never was just devised of these two platforms. In fact, Facebook and Twitter were rolled out nearly thirty years after social started on the Internet. It’s true that it was not until 2004 and 2006 when Facebook and Twitter kicked off that social media started to change the world and the way that people communicate online, but the truth is that social media started with email, usenet, the world wide web, blogs and AOL instant messenger. The history of the Internet is the history of social networking.

Social Media History
The phenomena of social networking blossomed in 1994 with the creation of Geocities, which allowed its users to setup websites modeled after certain urban areas. At that time, more than 1,500 web servers were online in 1994 and people were referring to the Internet as the Information Superhighway.

  • In 1971, a government organization called ARPA (Advanced Research Projects Agency) sent the first email.
  • In 1980, Usenet worldwide distributed Internet discussion system was launched and with it, thousands flocked to the message boards to discuss music, science, literature and sports.

These two events signal the dawn of social networking.

What do people do with social media?

  • Posting and sharing
  • Reading and viewing
  • Linking and commenting
  • Interacting with brands
  • Interacting with fan pages
  • Playing games
  • Chatting and messaging

What is social?

  • It’s huge. If Facebook were a country, it would be the third most populated in the world, behind only China and India.
  • The amount of video uploaded to YouTube every minute is more than 24 hours (double from the year prior).
  • The number of YouTube videos viewed per day is over 2 billion (double from the year prior).
  • The number of images hosted on Flickr is over 4 billion (that is 13 times more than the Library of Congress).
  • The number of companies using LinkedIn to find and attract employees is 95%.
  • The number of marriages last year between people who met through social media is 1 in 6, which is twice as many people who met in bars, clubs and other social events.
  • The average number of tweets per day on Twitter is over 27 million (that is 8 time more than the year prior)..

Who is social?
More than half of the human race is under the age of 30. So if you want to a sense of where the world’s media habits are headed, it makes sense to watch what kids are doing.

Reaching customers
Social media is the best way to reach your most influential customers, and the only way to reach your most cynical ones. Social media is the crack cocaine of the Internet. We want it, we need it, and we go through withdraw when we don’t have it.

The future of business and social
Social media is a way of thinking. It’s not about sales or ads or click-through rates. It’s about pursuing relationships and fostering communities of consumers. Businesses that wish to grow need to rethink their entire business marketing process. Social requires businesses to make plans because with social, customers are in the center and they are in control.

Level the playing field
Social media is dramatically leveling the playing field and connecting us like never before. So, forget your brand. You don’t own it. You can spend all sorts of time and money trying to manufacture public opinion, but ultimately it’s up to the public.

Social media is redefining everything.

  • How we work
  • How we play
  • How we learn
  • How we share
  • How we discover
  • How we create
  • How we complain
  • How we celebrate
  • How we mourn
  • How we applaud
  • How we influence
  • How we collaborate
  • How we investigate
  • How we evaluate

The rules of social media are basically the same as media.

  1. Listen
  2. Engage
  3. Be real
  4. Be respectful
  5. Have fun

Home on the Internet
Social media is the ongoing conversation of the planet. It’s the source of news, and more often that not, social is the home on the Internet. It’s the home page and the place where most people spend time on the Internet. Social media is the mainstream. It moves the media mouthpiece and constantly distributes to the hands of the public.

Making Social Media Work For Your Business

Social Media and the Development of the Web 2.0

Designed to be spread through social interaction, Social Media relies on accessibility and consumer usability. Taking full advantage of the wide spread use of the Internet, social media uses web-based technologies to engage singular media sources in dialogue with one another. Social media has brought democracy to the dissemination of information and knowledge, giving a voice to the general public, transforming the masses from content consumers to content producers. Social media has been defined by Andreas Kaplan and Michael Haenlein as “a group of Internet bases application that build on the ideological and technological foundations of Web 2.0 and that allow the creation and exchange of user-generated content.” Many business have started to take advantage of this “user-generated content”, also known as “consumer generated media”. The wide spread use of social media has taken the information age one step further into what is becoming known as “The Attention Age”

With so much content available on the web and so many voices contributing to web-based conversations, the question in play now becomes how to capture the attention of the masses and rise above the noise that has been created by the constant online media “buzz”. Distinguishing any one particular site, person or idea on the web takes a great deal of creativity and innovation. This need has created a whole new pool of professionals who specialize in driving traffic or attention to a specific Internet “site” or place. Now that everyone has a voice, the goal is to become an “authority” in a certain field or on a specific subject. Much of becoming an authority is developing a following.

Businesses large and small have begun to take advantage of this idea and the facility of user generated content and consumer generated media in order to use their customers as marketing tools. With a few simple incentives, business have to power to use their customers as promoters, increasing brand exposure and positive consumer feedback. With the extensive reach of social media sites such as Twitter, messages and information can be spread instantly to thousands of individuals across the globe.

Other forms of social media include networking sites such as Facebook and LinkedIn, online forums such as Wikipedia, media sharing tools such as YouTube and MySpace (also a social networking site) podcasts, social bookmarking, blogs, vlogs and social network aggregation platforms.

With the widespread use of online media and the prevalence of the Internet, it is in every business’ best interest to take full advantage of social media as a marketing and sales tool. In the United States, social networking accounts for 11 percent of all time spent on the Internet. Over a quarter of Internet page visits in the US were to top social networking sites. Twitter processes more than one billion tweets each month and averages about 40 million tweets per day. While these numbers may seem staggering, they are increasing every day.

There are many ways businesses can use social media and Internet marketing to their advantage. By creating their own online profiles, they can develop following online through sites such as Twitter, Facebook and LinkedIn, as well as distributing content through Wikipedia, a business blog and their website. Since the goal of social media is to start and spread conversation, businesses have to offer a point of intrigue, be it through interesting content or an incentive in exchange for participating in an information exchange.

Businesses can also use the information that sites such as Facebook offer about their users to target Internet advertising at a specific market. Since Facebook publicly shares information such as occupation, location, martial status, educational background and interests, it is easy to design and target advertising campaigns at a specific group of users.

If done right, online media can be used to have the consumer do the marketing. Similar to a store selling a t-shirt with their brand name printed across the front, businesses can use their customers as their own advertising tools. For example, if a business creates a Facebook fan page that they invite their customers to join by offering a simple incentive such as a coupon or access to “insider information”, their business name will be displayed on all of their fan’s profiles in the live newsfeed of all of their fans’ friends. By increasing exposure, they will expand their following, thereby gaining more customers.

Social vs Industrial Media

Media can be loosely defined as “a source in which people gain information, education, news, etc.” Online media is distinct from industrial media in that it is generally far less expensive and more accessible. Anyone can publish social media, whereas industrial media usually requires significant financial backing. While both social and industrial media have extensive reach, the ability to produce social media is available to anyone. Social media is also far more user friendly. Anyone with access to the Internet can create a Facebook profile or sign up for Twitter with no special training. Industrial media creators, on the other hand, have almost always received some sort of higher education specializing in the field. Perhaps where the two forms differ most is in the fact that social media has the ability to be published in real time. Whereas there is a time lag between an occurred event and the information being published in a newspaper, social media is broadcast instantaneously. It is true that news-reporters can broadcast live to television, but they can only be in one place at one time whereas social media users can send out information from thousands of different sources. Take the recent earthquake in Chile, for example. While a few reporters and camera crews could show live footage from a specific point of interest, anyone with a computer or cellphone could instantly send updates on what was happening from wherever they were, thus providing thousands of live information sources on what was happening in real time. Because of the nature of the Internet, social media is permanent whereas industrial media is destructible. Conversely, however, once industrial media is published, it cannot be edited or altered. On the other hand, social media can be changed almost instantly.

Web 2.0

The term “Web 2.0” first came into play just before the new millennium when Darcy DiNucci used it in an article she wrote about the future of the Internet. Whereas the web was once a static place for gathering information, it has now become an active forum for information sharing and development. The term started to become more widely used in 2004 when O’Reilley Media and MediaLive hosted the first Web 2.0 conference. Web 2.0 does not necessarily refer to complicated technology upgrades, but rather to how the web is used, and the modern ability to interact with it.

The idea of Web 2.0 centers around the idea of using the Internet as a platform. Users are able to do far more than just retrieve data. Users now have the ability to interact with site features (post comments, live chat, upload images, music and video, etc) as well as store, manage and own data that they post.

Social Media is a large part of the nature of Web 2.0. Being able to have live conversations, instantly broadcast information to thousands of users at the same time as well as interact with other sources (live or computerized) has transformed the Internet from a library into a playground.

So where are we headed next? Have we already crossed the line into a new iteration of the Internet? Have we entered into the realm of Web 3.0? The expansion of social media platforms and the web’s ability to track and connect user preferences suggests that we are indeed entering into yet another stage of how the Internet is used. Companies have a responsibility to keep up to date with these emerging trends as it is sure to effect the way we conduct business.

As a kid, Sri Guru Nanak learnt, other than the provincial dialects, Persian and Arabic. He was hitched in 1487 and was honored with two children, one of every 1491 and the second in 1496. In 1485 he took up, at the case of his brother by marriage, the arrangement of an authority accountable for the stores of Daulat Khan Lodhi, the Muslim leader of the region at Sultanpur. It is there that he came into contact with Mardana, a Muslim performer (Mirasi) who was senior in age. Gurdwara Nankana Sahib

Apparently, 1496 was the time of his edification when he began his central goal. His first assertion after his prophetic fellowship with God was “There is no Hindu, nor any Mussalman.” This is a declaration of preeminent importance it announced not just the fraternity of man and the parenthood of God, yet in addition his reasonable and essential premium not in any supernatural tenet but rather just in man and his destiny. It implies love your neighbor as yourself. Gurdwara nankana sahib also, it underlined, at the same time the basic spirituo-moral blend of his message. Joined by Mardana, he started his teacher visits. Aside from passing on his message and delivering help to the powerless, he strongly lectured, both by statute and practice, against position differentiations formality, icon love and the pseudo-strict convictions that had no otherworldly substance. He decided to blend in with all. He feasted and lived with men of the most reduced stations and classes Considering the at that point winning social practices and customs, this was something socially and strictly incredible in those long stretches of unbending Hindu rank framework authorized by the sacred texts and the strictly affirmed thoughts of distance and contamination. It involves extraordinary importance that at the absolute starting point of his main goal, the Guru’s first partner was a low standing Muslim. The contributions he got during his visits, were disseminated among poor people. Any excess gathered was given to his hosts to keep a typical kitchen, where all could sit and eat together with no differentiation of standing and status. This organization of basic kitchen or langar turned into a significant instrument of aiding poor people, and a core for strict get-togethers of his general public and of building up the essential balance, all things considered, classes and genders.


The Morning Erection Explained – What a Wake-Up Woody Means for Men’s Health

While most men don’t adore awakening with a firm neck or back, not many men whine when they awaken with an alternate body part that is solid. Ordinarily known as “morning wood,” it is completely typical for men – including young fellows simply arriving at sexual development – to awaken with a shaking erection first thing in the AM. Study this typically welcome wonder and how it affects penis wellbeing in the event that it begins to disappear.

Is morning wood ordinary?

Most men awaken to discover they are “popping a tent” in their jeans, a wonder that is a totally ordinary piece of a man’s sexuality. Truth be told, it is a generally excellent sign that demonstrates everything is working the manner in which it ought to be. Most men have various erections for the duration of the evening (3-5 or more), every one of which can keep going for 30 minutes or more. While most erections in the daytime emerge from openness to something animating – either outwardly, intellectually, or truly – an evening time erection doesn’t really mean a person is dreaming about or envisioning sex – however he could be.

What causes this early morning hi?

There are a couple of things that might be at fault (or to thank) for a morning erection. A full bladder is one of them. At the point when the bladder gets overfull, as it tends to during the evening, the pee advances up the urethra, which causes engorgement and an erection. In spite of the fact that this may help wake the man up to void his bladder, this might be actually quite difficult with an all out hard-on. A solid morning boo is additionally connected with certain rest cycles and is bound to happen when a man is in dynamic or REM rest – which happens a few times each night, just as not long prior to waking toward the beginning of the day – however men do have erections outside of REM rest. Drugs for erectile brokenness are additionally regularly connected with morning wood and could be the offender, however numerous men experience them without prescription.

Studies have discovered that it is entirely typical for both the quality and number of erections to continuously change over a man’s life expectancy. This move is in all likelihood connected with the common lessening of testosterone that comes as a man ages.
