As the title says, today’s subject will be about profitable plants. Whether you are an experienced agriculturalist or just a beginner and have grand ideas about profiting from growing specialty crops, a bit of new research and reminders are always welcome.

Agriculture is advancing on a daily level, we can notice, so it is good to be updated with the news if you are interested in this field. Regarding greenhouse business, there are plenty of new ideas and developments on this field. Apart from specialized stores and companies that provide modern greenhouse kits and additional equipment, there are also new technologies applied in greenhouses. Some of them include hydroponic technologies which use has shown as a great success:

In considering the most profitable crops to grow in a greenhouse, you should not limit on traditional growing only. Hydroponic and aquaponic techniques of growing plants are other solutions, for which you will need some additional equipment and setting for your greenhouse.  But with a bit more investment you will get much better results since it is much easier to provide the plant with nutrients it needs through water than through soil. Most of the plants have shown great results in terms of yield and health, and hydroponic systems and technologies are being upgraded constantly.

Apart from the hydroponics, you can always turn to oldschool traditional growing in your greenhouse. But whatever your choice would be, the first thing is thinking about which plants are the most profitable to grow in a greenhouse. We have found some interesting ideas on that issue on an article published by Insider Monkey - Top 8 Most Profitable Specialty Plants to Grow in a Greenhouse.

15 Most Respected Jobs in America in 2017

Is prestige a job brings really as important as job satisfaction, or salary for that matter? I would say it isn’t. And this article by Insider Monkey on the 15 most respected jobs in America in 2017 echoes my sentiments. While respect is indeed quite welcome and is in fact an element of job satisfaction, it is not everything. It is only just that: an element.

Having said that, I think it’s interesting to note the most respected jobs in the country as they give you a good idea of the views and opinions of the masses, and that is always a plus.

The article I linked above also indicates that the most prestigious jobs in the world are quite similar to the ones respected in the US. It says that: “Respect is a subjective concept, and although every country has different morals and values, the most prestigious jobs in the world have something in common with the most coveted jobs in America. The USA and the rest of the world agree that jobs that tend to assist citizens and societies in some way or the other are the ones that warrant the most appreciation. That is why doctors, military officers, nurses, firefighters, and similar jobs are always present on every list of occupations ranked by esteem, in the USA or otherwise.”

It is intriguing to know that while there are so many differences prevalent among various nations of the world, differences that even lead to violence sometimes, the values we hold dear remain the same. This fact is definitely something to keep you going, in a world where peace appears to be a concept for idealists. Some of you might accuse me of grasping at straws, but it is what it is.

12 States with the Highest Percentage of African American Population

It may not be interesting for many to note how different races are distributed geographically throughout the country but Insider Monkey has managed to make the topic quite intriguing with its piece on the 12 states with the highest percentage of African American population. Listing the Blackest states, coupled with amazing facts about the state of racism in the country, the article ends up being quite thought provoking.

Check out this snippet from the aforementioned article: “Let's consider Louisiana, for example, that holds a very high spot on our list, but has also been considered the most racist according to an analysis of tweets conducted by Abodo, based on the overall derogatory language used in tweets. The state was also ranked number 3 in anti-Black tweets.”

The above fact quite clearly shows how density of minorities in a particular area does not mean that that place will be tolerant. Maybe it just gives the state more opportunity to commit hate crimes? Of course, not all citizens of the US are racist. It is merely some White supremacists that have besmirched the name of many. But that does not mean that racism should be dismissed as a nonexistent issue. It is in fact prevalent in America and is highly significant. The matter has been more under scrutiny since Trump joined office and for good measure, but let’s not go into that, shall we?

20 Best Paying Jobs You Can Do from Anywhere in the World

“Jobs you can do from anywhere have become really popular in the last couple of years, and I know many people who travel a lot and earn money with the help of these “work anywhere anytime” jobs. In most cases, those are jobs you can do online without a degree; you just need to have certain skills, such as knowledge of English language or any other language, excellent writing skills, good command of grammar, or something else related to IT or graphic design. However, there are some other possibilities as well, especially if you are a very communicative person. For example, I have a friend who is a certified fitness trainer, with a lot of experience and knowledge. She has decided to travel the world, and before visiting a new country, she makes a research on the possible short-term employment while living there. That is how she sustains herself for a month or two. Yes, it sounds very adventurous and it is, but it’s definitely worth trying.

What new technologies offer is the fact that you don’t have to be present in a certain place in order to do your job well. Now that everything can be done remotely, we made sure to bring you the list of 20 best paying jobs you can do from anywhere in the world. Check it out and find the job that suits you best!

12 Biggest and Best Fireworks Displays Around the World

Fireworks were invented by Chinese, and were used during religious rituals, with belief that they could scare off evil spirits. It seems that today fireworks work much better against humans. Smoke and dust that contain heavy metals are obviously “great” for humans; and what do you think are leftovers from fireworks if not just that? Barium is poisonous and radioactive, but is great for vivid green colors in fireworks. Want some cancer? Whoops, I mean fireworks. Copper based colors are used for blue fireworks, and they release dioxins, which cause – you guessed it – cancer. Insidermonkey experts made a list of 12 biggest and best fireworks displays around the world.

Pretty much any color of fireworks has got some of the “healthy” components, including strontium, lithium, aluminum, rubidium and so on. Fireworks are a threat to health, and are especially irritating to those suffering from asthma. Water supply contamination, and acid rain are additional possible “benefits” of fireworks. A study, on Oklahoma lake, showed that within 14 hours after the fireworks, percolate levels rose from 24 to more than thousand times the mean baseline value! It took from 20 to 80 days for those concentrations to revert to normal levels. You might be interested in our list of the most celebrated holidays in the world.
