Find out who is running the world from the comfort of their boardroom below!
1. Google Inc./Alphabet
There may not be a person alive today who does not know the name Google. Founded in 1998, the simple search engine has blow up into one of the largest tech firms in the world. Their software is found in millions of devices, from smartphones to cars, and is used by even more people than that on a daily basis.

If there were a fountain of eternal youth here on Earth, it’d probably be owned by some large corporation like Estee Lauder or Microsoft and sold to the oldest, richest people. Unfortunately (or fortunately, depending on your outlook), such a fountain doesn’t exist, and humans are left with puzzled looks on their faces wondering how they can overcome a little thing called time.
Time etches deep grooves in our skin and faces and we grow older and wiser. Unless you’re Keanu Reeves, this is unavoidable. Luckily, there are certain things you can do to keep age lines at bay for longer, and the best thing is that these tricks are really simple to apply.
Below are 15 things you can do or need to change to look forever young!
1. Reduce your stress levels
A hectic work schedule doesn’t just take its toll on your brain and mind, but it also does considerable damage to your looks. The more stressed out you are, the quicker you’ll age. Nobody wants crow’s feet or smile lines before they hit 30, so to prevent these age marks, try to avoid stressful situations as much as possible. Also, make a habit of meditating or doing yoga to help release oxytocin, the calm and healing hormone, to help you deal better with stress and anxiety.
Success can be measured in many ways, but when it comes to how successful a movie is, what we’re looking at is their earnings. Movies can generate money through various revenue streams, but the most important indicator of a movie’s success or failure is how much it grosses at the box office. The number one highest grossing film to ever hit theaters is 1939’s Gone with the Wind which earned more than $3.5 billion. This is after adjusting for inflation, of course.
But that’s not what you’re here for. You’re looking for what films raked in the most green regardless of fluctuating currencies. Surprisingly, of our list of the 15 highest box office earners, only one of them wasn’t released within the last decade!
15. The Fate and the Furious (2017) – $1.2B

The next installment to this 19-year-old franchise will be released in spring of 2020.
In today’s world, most of us have reasonably fast-paced lives. This applies even more strongly to certain people like celebrities and businessmen. With so many projects, meetings and events to attend, these people are literally racing against time. As a result, they always prefer to wear shiny watches that are accurate and resistant to damage so that they can always be ahead of time. If you are planning to buy the perfect watch for your wrist, you must hear what famous people have to say about them. In this article, we will be covering the watch brands most commonly used by famous people.
This Swiss luxury watchmaker is probably one of the most highly regarded brands to this day and the first choice of numerous famous people. They are the pioneers of some significant inventions made in the watchmaking industry. These include the world’s first chiming and minute repeating watches, the first watch with tourbillon – a technology that defies gravity and the first watch that is resistant to magnetic field. The watch was worn by some of the most famous figures from John F. Kennedy to George Clooney and Nicole Kidman, from Prince William to Elvis Presley. It was also worn in almost all the Bond movies made after 1995. As you can expect, these watches were the most expensive accessories in the entire history of humanity. Elves Presley’s watch was auctioned for 2 million USD.
2. PATEK PHILIPPE CALATRAVA
The brand was first established in 1932 by Swiss watchmaker Patek Philippe. The design of the watches was inspired by the design principles taught at the German art school of the Staatliches Bauhaus. The first models only displayed hours, minutes and seconds, while the larger versions released after 2006 also displayed the date. The prices currently start from 19000 USD. This watch was regularly spotted on the wrist of Akio Toyoda, the president of the Toyota Motor Corporate.
Founded by Auguste Agassiz in 1832, this company is probably the oldest Swiss watchmaking company. In the 19th century, they focused more on pendulum clocks for houses. Later on, they also professionalized in producing stopwatches that could measure the time between activation and deactivation. This came in very handy in sports such as horse racing. Among its brand ambassadors and owners; Albert Einstein, Audrey Hepburn, Aishwarya Rai and Kate Winslet are the most notable. In fact, Einstein owned one pocket-watch and a wristwatch. His gold wristwatch was auctioned for half a million dollars in 2008.
4- ULYSSE NARDIN
This Swiss watch manufacturer was founded in 1846. During the 19th century, their emphasis was based on manufacturing timepieces to navies and shipping companies. In addition, their marine chronometers were used in the determination of time zones, which earned them several awards. Its 2001 model “Freak” received the award for the watch of the year, while the “Trilogy of Time” was a major breakthrough that indicated solar time, orbits, eclipses, positions of the sun, the moon and important stars. It was owned by Michael Jordan, Larry King and Jeff Bezos, who is the founder of Amazon.
5- TAG HEUER
Ever since its foundation in 1860, this Swiss manufacturing company not only manufactures watches, but also produces accessories, eyewear and cellphones. With the motto “Don’t crack under pressure”, they aimed to measure even the smallest units of time. Their model Carrera Calibre 360 was the first wristwatch that measured 1/100 of a second. This precision was further enhanced in 2012 when they produced the Mikrogirder that displayed 1/2000 of a second. To this day, it is still the fastest and the most accurate chronograph. This brand is extremely common and popular among Hollywood stars such as Brad Pitt, Leonardo DiCaprio, Cameron Diaz, Uma Thurman and Chris Hemsworth. In sports, Christiano Ronaldo, Lewis Hamilton and Maria Sharapova are among the owners of Tag Heuer.
The most expensive watch in the world was a Rolex Model worn by actor Paul Newman. Founded in London and based in Geneva, Switzerland, Rolex was among the first companies to start quarts watch manufacturing. Their groundbreaking achievements include the first waterproof watch in 1926. The accuracy of the watch was tested at the bottom of Mariana Trench at 11000 km depth and was as accurate as it was on the surface. Another invention was the self-winding watch in which the internal mechanism of the watch was affected by the movement of the arm. Also, they produced the first watch to display two time-zones at once. Rolex is commonly worn amongst sportsmen, especially athletes, tennis players and swimmers.
This Japanese manufacturing company is a world-leader not only in watch making but also in electronic devices, jewelries and optical products. Its watch manufacturing began in 1924. The first quartz watch and the first automatic quartz of the world were produced by Seiko. Its water resistant structure, durable steel and automatic winding capacities started to challenge the Swiss companies. Its rapid development also resulted in expansion of headquarters into various other countries including the United States. Seiko was used as the official timekeeper for main sports events such as Summer Olympics, Winter Olympics and FIFA World Cup. Another Seiko model was frequently worn by Nasa Flight Director Gene Kranz when he witnessed important events regarding the launching of Apollo 11 and 13.
Because it was established by the founder of Rolex Watches, it can be considered as a more affordable alternative to Rolex. Its main products involved those produced specifically for professional divers and the military. Just like Rolex, they also produced waterproof models as well as those resistant to extreme conditions. They also produced models with distinct alarming features. David Beckham and Lady Gaga are among the popular figures that prefer the recent products of Tudor.
9- NOMOS GLASHÜTTE
This is the most recent and the first non-Swiss watchmaking company on our list. It was founded in 1990 in the Saxony town of Glashütte, two months after the fall of the Berlin Wall. Since then, they have released thirteen watch models. While their products prior to 2005 were mostly mechanical, they have managed to switch to the automatic winding properties. Their recent products also included world time function. This watch was spotted being worn by the 42nd President of The United States, Bill Clinton.
This watchmaking company was founded in 1860 by Louis-Ulysse Chopard, a Swiss watchmaker from Bern. The company was then purchased by the German Scheufele family in 1963. Their products were renowned for the diamond &sapphire glass and the quality of the material. Their target customers were ladies as they also produced diamonds besides lady wristwatches. Recently, they have also been designing and manufacturing products for sportswear. Chopard has been a regular sponsor for events in France and Italy including Cannes Film Festival. The watch is also regularly worn by Dara Khosrowshahi, the founder of Uber.
11- AUDEMARS PIGUET
This Swiss manufacturer was founded in 1875 by Jules Louis Audemars and Edward Auguste Piguet. It is one of the few watchmaking companies that has been a family-owned business all along. Their 1972 model, the Royal Oak wristwatch was commercially very successful, being the first minute-repeating wristwatch. They also focused on ergonomic design by manufacturing some of the thinnest watches in the world. This watch has been owned by many athletes such as Lebron James, Leo Messi and Michael Schumacher as well as celebrities such as Tom Cruise, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Jay-Z and even the Kardashians. Apparently, someone was able to keep up with the Kardashians after all.
12- VACHERON CONSTANTIN
The foundation of this luxury watchmaking company dates all the way back to 1755. The founder Jean-Marc Vacheron was an independent watchmaker who was a close frind of Jean-Jacques Rousseau and Voltaire. His son had to deal with financial struggles during the era of French Revolution. Since the early periods, the company focused on creating watch complications, described as the features beyond showing only the hour and the minute. Their inventions included nonmagnetic timepieces that resisted magnetic fields. This quaint and elegant brand was owned mostly by artists and intellectuals. The list includes Marlon Brando, Elizabeth Taylor, John D. Rockefeller, Christaan Barnard, Salvatore Quasimodo, Napoleon Bonaparte and Princess Diana.
Even older than Vacheron Constantin, Blancpain was founded in 1735 in Switzerland. They have a very interesting and unique slogan that states “Blancpain has never made a quartz watch and never will.” They are against the idea of producing watches with digital displays as well. The production rate is also fewer compared to the other companies, so that each watch being produced is more personalized according to individual needs. Their inventions include the display of moon phases, small design that features self-winding and minute-repeating. Notable owners include Marilyn Monroe, Brad Pitt and Vladimir Putin.
14- IWC SCHAFFHAUSEN
Although based in Switzerland, it was founded by an American watchmaker in 1868. Their products are exemplar in the usage of titanium in watchmaking. They are also considerate of the environment and sustainable production which earned them an award in 2018 by World wide Fund for Nature for their commitment to sustainable manufacturing. They are also known for their magazine “Watch International” that gets released four times in a year.
This watchmaking company probably has the highest amount of patents to its name. Ever since their foundation in 1833, they have invented some of the world’s smallest calibre and the most complicated wristwatches. Its founder, Antoine LeCoultre invented the milionometre that was used in the size measurement of watch parts, which enabled a more precise practice in manufacturing, He also invented a keyless watch that only had a push-piece. Some of its owners are Robert Downey Jr, Bill Clinton and Elizabeth II.
Even though we might get the chance to visit every single country in the world, we still cannot consider ourselves having seen the world entirely. The reason, clearly, is the water that takes up more than two thirds of the surface. From the vast and deep oceans to small inner seas and lakes, underwater is a whole other level of mystery that we can’t easily unravel. Thanks to today’s technology and the developments in tourism, it has become much easier. So, you don’t have to drink a potion that will temporarily turn you into a mermaid to explore the historic sites or the wildlife underwater. Here are 20 suggestions for you to get in touch with what lies beneath. This article will wash away the fear of water that Jaws created all those years ago!
1- ATLANTIS, DUBAI
Dubai is always one of the pioneers when it comes to luxury and entertainment and it has an outstanding record when it comes to underwater tourism. Hotel Atlantis is a five-star hotel in the Palm Island of Dubai. Their underwater attractions include The Lost Chamber Aquarium where you can observe 65000 marine species and a fine dining restaurant immersed in the sea. The most unimaginable highlights, though, are the underwater suites. Imagine yourself falling asleep and waking up with only glass panels between you and the sea full of sharks. This is both scary and dazzling.
2- ITHAA UNDERSEA RESTAURANT, THE MALDIVES
With its turquoise and crystal clear water, Maldives has always been an all-time classic among travelers. How about looking at this beauty from a different perspective?

Today, the museum consists of 500 of these and demonstrates the harmony between the art and the marine life. The sculptures are all fixed to the waterbed and are made of materials that are harmless to the ecosystem.
4- MANTA RESORT, ZANZIBAR, TANZANIA
Zanzibar and vacation are two inseparable words, but if you are tired of lying on a hammock by the beach, how about trying a unique experience.

Since its opening in 2007, the reef has accommodated the cremated remains of 850 people and has still been expanding.
7- WEEKI WACHEE SPRINGS, FLORIDA, USA
If you don’t believe in mermaids, you are going to start questioning your beliefs after visiting here. Weeki Wachee is a large waterpark in Florida. What makes it stand out from an ordinary aqua park is the underwater theatre where female dancers wear fishtails and perform a choreography pretending to be mermaids. The place has been used as a filming location in many movies, TV shows and music videos. The park is located in Buccaneer Bay.
8- SUBSIX BAR, MALDIVES
Not everyone likes clubbing, but the idea of sweating on a dancefloor while surrounded by the gigantic Indian Ocean is intriguing enough to make you a hardcore clubber.

The place is renowned for its weekly events where DJs from overseas play and offer an entertaining show that lasts until dawn.
9- CHRIST OF THE ABYSS, ITALY
Statues of Christ are always magnificent no matter what your religious beliefs are, but an underwater version will inevitably raise the bar.

It was torpedoed by a Japanese submarine during World War 2 and ran ashore in Bali. However, a volcanic eruption in 1963 triggered a water displacement and submerged the shipwreck completely. Today, the area is extremely popular amongst divers visiting Bali. Its closeness to the surface of the water makes it very accessible.

18- SUBMERGED CITY OF SHI CHENG, CHINA
Beneath the artificial lake in Chun’an County of China lies one of the most intact ancient cities in the world. This ancient city is 1300 years old, however its submersion only occurred in 1959 when the government wanted to build a hydroelectric power station. Since the flooding was recent, there hasn’t been any erosion on the city buildings, so it might be worth a visit while the ancient city is still in good shape.
19- CLEOPATRA’S SUNKEN PALACE, EGYPT

Many artifacts have been removed and placed into the museums, but the main structure is still there including temple, main quarters and even an ancient museum.
20- GRÜNER LAKE, AUSTRIA
Have you ever wondered how having a picnic underwater would look like? The Grüner Lake, or Green Lake in Austria is one of the most scenic and regularly visited spots in Central Europe amongst hikers. In fact, Grüner Lake is only 1-2 meters deep in winter, but its seasonal expansion is a natural phenomenon. Because it is surrounded by snow-covered mountains, it grows drastically as the snow melts into the lake during spring time. As a result, the park surrounding the lake gets completely submerged in the water for a whole month at the end of the spring. Throughout May and June, you can dive in and explore the paths, bridges, trees and benches underwater.
In all honesty, when you here of the words “walk” or even “hike” you don’t immediately think of fun, adventure or thrill. What usually comes to your mind is taking a nature walk, looking at trees, spotting some birds, and taking in some fresh air.
However, after reading this list, your perception of these words will be altered greatly! We will list some of the scariest pathways in the whole world that are certified scary and have made many people shiver.

Huangshan Walkway (China)
To put it simply, this is a path that runs alongside a mountain and is found in the Yellow Mountains in the southern Anhui province in China.

The diverse climate and vegetation is home to some of the deadliest animals in the world. From the almost microscopic to the human-sized animals, these animals will give you enough discomfort to fear for your life in the best case scenario. The worst case scenario can even be death within minutes. Here is a list of 25 animals you need to stay away from.
GREAT WHITE SHARK
Great White Sharks were not called great for nothing. They are famous for their sizes, large enough to interrupt a police operation conducted on the sea. With a large life-span and speed up to 60 km/h, these sharks are the biggest threat to the marine mammals. Technically humans are not prey for great whites because of containing more bone and muscles and less fat compared to the sea mammals. That being said, they are likely to bite humans when encountered in blurry waters. They probably won’t continue with the attack since they don’t really like human flesh. However, the bites can be lethal in case of severe blood loss and tissue damage.

What happens With Your Body When You Stop Smoking?
Smoking is an ancient practice, and it was first used as a ritual. There is a wide variety of substances, dried plants leaves and other things that can be used to create a cigarette, but the most widespread cigarette is made of tobacco.
Even if sometimes it’s interesting and relaxing to have a cigarette with a friend, you probably know that smoking is a very bad habit for your body and for your health. This is the reason why many people try to quit smoking, but they aren’t prepared mentally and physically to do that.
Quitting smoking isn’t something very easy, that’s why many of those who are trying to give up on smoking don’t succeed. We will present you what happens when you stop smoking. Knowing those things you can anticipate and control your habits. It could be something very helpful because you’ll have bigger chances to stop smoking if you’ll know what happens in time!
Notice that some effects might be different for every person, and there are multiple factors that will influence your body behavior after you’ll smoke your last cigarette. Depending on how many cigarettes you smoke daily, what types of cigarettes you use (the percentage of nicotine in each cigarette) and many others, those things might vary in your case.
20 minutes after the smoke
Immediately after you stop smoking, your body will notice that. In the first 20 minutes your heart will establish the normal peace again, which means that you’ll have a close to normal blood pressure and pulse rate. Those are the first positive effects that you’ll be able to observe immediately.
2 hours after the smoke
After around two hours of no cigarette smoked your heart will be very close to the normal rate, so will be the blood pressure, but you’ll probably feel anxiety, maybe frustration, drowsiness or other sleeping problems. Those are symptoms of nicotine withdrawals, so don’t panic because it is normal if you haven’t smoking for two hours.
12 hours after the smoke
It is well known that a smoker inhales Carbon monoxide, which is transferred into the blood system. 12 hours after you quit smoking the level of Carbon monoxide from your blood will decrease, and the oxygen will take its place. This is an important thing that happens in your body, because you’ll have again a normal level of oxygen in blood. It is good to know that low level of oxygen in blood can cause serious health diseases, and some of the most known are the hearth conditions.
24 hours after the smoke
24 hours – no smoking and the risk for major health diseases will already be reduced.The studies show that the risk of coronary artery disease is very high for people who smoke, but once you quit smoking the risk will considerably lower in the first 24 hours.
48 hour after smoke

3 days after quit smoke
The quitting smoking process became very difficult in the third day after you decided to stop to smoke. This is the point when you’ll body will be nicotine free, but you will surely experience some things that might make you think to light a cigarette. Things like depression, muscular cramps, headaches and even sweating are common and you should do your best to overcome them.
2 or 3 weeks after quit smoke
If you’re here, you can consider yourself half way to the finish line because after2 or 3 weeks of no smoking you’ll have a considerably better shape than you had a few weeks or months ago. At this point you can start doing physical exercises because your body will start to regenerate and heal. Specialists say that after 2 or 3 weeks your lungs will work better, and they will be with 30% healthier than they were when you used to smoke.
after a month
After a month you quit your lungs will be almost fully recovered and they will be able to work efficiently. The coughing and breath problems will stop soon, and, depending on each person, after 9 or more months all the symptoms will disappear and also the need of smoking will be gone.
after 1 year
You can celebrate now because you just reached 1 year of no smoking, which is one of the most important things that you achieved in the last period of time. After 1 year the risks of health diseases will lower with 50%.
after 5 year
