Top 15 Countries with the Largest Middle Class Population in the World

The differences in income and wealth distribution of a country can be seen nicely through ratio of classes in the society. Today we are taking the middle class into consideration as the best parameter showing these inequalities.

But, first, there is a problem of defining middle class which is not always easy and experts on the field also have some disagreements and different opinions:

According to CNN Money, the middle class is characterized by their place in five categories: income, wealth, consumption, aspiration, and demographics. By the income middle class represents the population whose income is in between that 20% of the poorest and 20% of the richest people. Since wealth does not have to be proportional to the income (having in mind savings for example), some characterize middle class being 3/5 of the country’s wealth. Consumption is one of the categories that might show better the position of an individual than income by the amount of spending. Then we have the aspiration, rather a non-directly measurable category, but showing the personal tendencies and possibilities through showing off the socio-economic status. And finally, there is a demographic category takes into account education, age, race together with income as wealth indicators.

Even though there is not a single definition of the middle class, it is more or less a thing that can be measured and compared globally. In short – countries with big middle class are usually those wit least differences in income and wealth distribution. In today’s world a middle class boom is seen in Asia and developing countries (but even though it encompasses millions of people it still represents a small proportion of these countries) while a slight shrinkage is seen in most Western European countries. To see more on this issue you might check out the article published by Insider Monkey concerning the Top 15 Countries with the Largest Middle Class Population in the World.

16 Best Karaoke Songs for Bad Singers

There must be a lot of people out there who love singing. Are you one of those people who spend a lot more time in the shower than necessary performing concerts and operas? If that is the case, you must love karaoke.

And here are some interesting things about karaoke that you probably didn’t know:

Let’s first begin with some fun facts. You probably do not know the origins of the word “karaoke.” Karaoke is a Japanese word which can be translated to something like empty singing with an orchestra (kara-empty, oke-orchestra). Karaoke was “invented” in the seventies by Daisuke Inoue who made a first karaoke machine so that he could “teach people how to sing.” The other reason Daisuke invented karaoke is that, as he says, he was the worst musician ever, and while playing drums at a local bar in Kobe he wanted to make his life easier by creating a machine that could do the work for him. Back then he couldn’t have dreamed that his invention would become one of the most popular entertainment devices.

Anyhow, if you really love singing but you are very bad at it, karaoke is a perfect thing for you? Why? Well, no matter how bad you are, the point of karaoke is having fun and socializing with your friends in pleasant friendly atmosphere. Karaoke are also a good thing for those shy people who are desperate to show their talents to others but just can’t.

If you are a bad singer with no music talent whatsoever, whatever the choice of the songs might be you will probably sound terrible anyway. But if you want to spare your audience a bit, you might be looking for some songs that suit you the most, and for that we have found perfect source for you - 16 Best Karaoke Songs for Bad Singers.

But some, on the other hand stick only to one thing, going to the very core of the thing they are doing. Nevertheless, the matter of choosing your favorite is one thing and choosing the places you want to visit is another. Some places are better for freeclimbing, others for hiking, some are top challenges not everybody would dare to do and so on. We have found a collection of suggestions which cover a lot of these, so you can check out the 11 Best Mountains to Climb in the World to get some ideas and something to think about for your future climbing career.

GPU (Graphics Processing Unit) in general includes support of graphics card, which was developed by NVIDIA (for personal computers) for purposes of acceleration of deep learning, analytics and engineering. So, while CPU (Central Processing Unit) works with several cores by sequential processing, GPU has many smaller units which perform tasks at the same time, which makes completing tasks faster. But, on the other hand, CPU, although not working simultaneously, works faster on completing individual tasks. And considering CPU vs. GPU in coin and cryptocurrency mining at home computers, opinions differ. Some people do both, but then face the hardware problems (overheating) and higher electricity bill (yes, cost of running the processor should also be taken in mind), while others use GPU or CPU only. Some of the leading GPUs for coin and cryptocurrency mining are NVIDIA and AMD nowadays.

Whatever your mining preference (and possibility on this matter) would be, it is good to know coin and cryptocurrency trends. That means you should follow them cautiously in order to make the best choice for mining.

A report of Ocean Healing Index organization notices that wealthier stable countries and regions with stable governance tend to have higher scores that impact the global ocean health, meaning that they care more about their waters.

8 Easiest Jimi Hendrix Songs to Play on Guitar

Jimi Hendrix was a music legend and one of the most iconic figures of 20th century. Even though he died at very young age, and thus not having a long music career, it can be said that all of the songs that were left behind him are very well known by generations and generations.

But, how easy it is to play Jimi Hendrix songs? It seems that chords and riffs used in his song are actually not hard. What makes Jimi’s songs hard if not impossible to copy is his playing style and unique way of improvisation and experimentation he had. For example, there is one chord which became his signature chord ever since:

…That is why, when looking for easiest Jimi Hendrix songs to play on a guitar, some would say that is impossible. That is why it cannot be easily decided which one is the hardest Jimi Hendrix song. What also made Jimi Hendrix guitar music recognizable is the “Hendrix chord,” or “Purple Haze” chord, which became somewhat of his signature chord. And that is dominant seventh sharp ninth chord (or 7#9), and that can be heard throughout his opus.

So, what are the easiest Jimi Hendrix songs to play on guitar? It is a simple question, but the answer might not be as simple. Because, as we have seen, if you want to copy Jimi’s style that might give you headache, but if you simply want to play his songs and get to know their structure than the job will be much easier.

Physical readiness is the most important part of the procedure of how to prepare for a marathon. If you are very beginner, any distance might seem long for you. But don’t give up!

7 Easiest Illegal Drugs to Make at Home by Using Legal Ingredients

Humans have been experimenting with drugs, it seems since ever. There have been many scientific researches that have shown that the use of psychedelic substances has a very long history with human species, and it seems that our extinct cousins Neanderthals knew about painkillers and psychedelics as well:

 Anyway, concerning human species, using psychoactive substances has a very long history. There is evidence for use of betel nut in Timor, which dates some 13,000 years back, which is still in the use today, just to name one example. Also, opium, mushrooms, marijuana, nicotine, and many other plants containing psychoactive substances have been found on many prehistoric archaeological sites throughout the world. There is also some evidence from 30- to 48,000-year-old specimens from El Sidrón cave in Spain that Neanderthals have also been using some painkillers and plants with psychoactive substances.

Since drugs have a long history, that means there has been a lot of experimentation with huge range of substances in order to make drugs. That is also what the recent centuries have brought, introducing synthetic drugs as well.

Many legal substances and chemicals when mixed together apparently can provide an illegal drug as a result. Since only a minor knowledge in chemistry is needed to produce these drugs, only the proportion and the amount of these substances is needed to know and almost anybody can make illegal drugs at their homes. And we are not counting thins like marijuana or shrooms here, since you do not do any chemistry in order to produce those. So, if you are curious to find out which illegal drugs can be made with some legal ingredients and chemicals, we have found an article dealing with, the 7 Easiest Illegal Drugs to Make at Home by Using Legal Ingredients.

10 Easiest Jack Johnson Songs to Learn

Jack Johnson is a popular musician who plays acoustic soft rock influenced by other chill music styles such as surf, reggae or folk music. These influences should not surprise you since Jack Johnson grew up on Hawaii having a surf career before becoming a musician.

But living on Hawaii, during his life he has encountered the consequences of pollution and waste in the oceans and pollution in general. That is why he made big moves towards spreading the awareness of these important issues. As you might already be familiar with this:

There are several non-profit foundations and social networks launched by him and his wife. The first foundation started by Jack was Kokua Hawaii Foundation in 2003. It is oriented towards schools and education of children about ecology and problems our planet is facing with pollution. The second foundation was raised in 2008 by Jack and his wife Kim, the Johnson Ohana Foundation for promoting and “supporting organizations that focus on environmental, art, and music education.” In the same year he launched a social network called All At Once, just to name some of his social web activities (which are not foundations), where people interested in environmental issues can easily connect and do some action in supporting plastic reduction in their communities, or growing organic food and promoting Farm to School movement.

Anyway, in his music he also tends to draw attention at these import issues, such is the case with one of his latest videos for the song “You Can’t Control It”.

Putting aside the environmental issues, music of Jack Johnson is great for playing since it is easy to learn. If you want to see which songs in particular, we recommend you to check out the 10 Easiest Jack Johnson Songs to Learn article published by Inside Monkey.

10 Easiest and Cheapest Luxury Cars to Maintain

Having a luxury car brings much other expense after buying one. This includes paying immensely high insurances, maintenance and of course repairs. These are the three inevitable things you will spend a bunch of money on if owning a luxury car. Just to give some examples:

Insurance is also among the important issues concerning your annual costs. Some of the most expensive brands concerning annual insurance, as well as the most expensive cars to maintain as we have seen earlier are Mercedes ($3,500 and more) and BMW (around $3,000) again. On the other side of the specter are Chrysler, Toyota, and Honda (with around $1,000 on average).
So, to summarize and add: you might find a fancy luxury vehicle in good condition for a low price no doubt, but be sure you can go on with that. Luxury cars have expensive insurance; repairs cost more, they often require premium type fuels and are usually harder to sell.

7 Easiest Jazz Instruments to Learn

If you are into the jazz music, you probably know how diverse and innovating jazz music is even after more than 100 years of its existence. The roots of jazz music go back in 19th century New Orleans, where various music styles were combined into a new musical expression. The first jazz, known as Dixieland jazz was inspired by ragtime and blues African-American music. Almost immediately after the first jazz orchestras were formed it has become one of the most popular and mainstream music styles not only in America but throughout the world:

After the establishing the unique, recognizable sound, since 1920s jazz has become the most popular music of its time, and became known as “Chicago” jazz style. During that time jazz has gotten the swing element, which has become one of the trademarks of jazz onwards. Legendary Louis Armstrong was the star of that era. That was the beginning of the Jazz Age, an era of the book of jazz music and development of unique artistic expression on other fields of art, which ended after some decade after, with the beginning of the Great Depression. Nevertheless during that time jazz music has become widespread not only in the US but throughout the world.

Apart from the Chicago style, new ages have brought new ideas and experimentations and that lead to creation and separation of many jazz subgenres. That has also introduced many new instruments into the jazz music. But some of the “classical” instruments that were used in first jazz bands include trumpet, violin, piano, saxophone, banjo, guitar, drums, string bass, clarinet to name the most common ones. Nowadays, there is a division of instrument groups that characterize a jazz band: horn section and rhythm section as the most important ones, and the others which include woodwind instruments, guitars, violins and whatever else.

In most US states, suicide is number 2 cause of death in these age categories.
There can be many causes that make someone commit suicide. The main leading cause is depression which is also on the rise.

Depression rates by state vary, and according to some data from Centers for Disease Control and Prevention for 2010, among the top depressed states are Mississippi (14.8%), West Virginia (14.3%), Alabama (13%), Oklahoma (11.3%) and Tennessee (11%).
Preventing suicide is very important, and especially recognizing first signs of problems, since a lot of them happens as a result of some mental illness. But on the other side, some suicides happen unpredictably, after some emotional breakdown such as financial problems or everyday life stresses. It seems that economic status is one of the major depression causes, having in mind that population below the poverty level is 2.5 times more stricken by the depression than the population living above the poverty level.
