  • Pizza Hut!

    Pizza Hut!

    https://popularbelieves.com/?p=1160(opens in a new tab)


    Pizza Hut is an American multinational restaurant chain and international franchise founded in 1958 in Wichita, Kansas by Dan and Frank Carney. They serve their signature pan pizza and other dishes including pastabreadsticks and dessert at dine-in, take-out and delivery chain locations. They also serve chicken wings on their WingStreet menu.

    The chain, headquartered in Plano, Texas, operates 17,639 restaurants worldwide as of 2020,[6] making it the world’s largest pizza chain by number of locations. It is owned by Yum! Brands, Inc., one of the world’s largest restaurant companies.


    Pizza Hut began on May 31, 1958,[7] by two brothers, Dan and Frank Carney, both Wichita State students, as a single location in Wichita, Kansas.[8] The now famous little brick building was close to their childhood home and stomping grounds. The Carney brothers grew up in the College Hill neighborhood amongst many life long Wichita families where tree-lined streets were filled with historical homes with a scenic park as their playground. Six months after their launch, later they opened a second outlet and within a year they had six Pizza Hut restaurants.

    On August 7, 2019, Pizza Hut announced its intention to close about 500 of its 7,496 dine-in restaurants in the US, by the middle of 2021.[25]

    On August 18, 2020, it was announced that Pizza Hut will be closing 300 restaurants after the bankruptcy of NPC International, one of its franchise providers. A company representative stated, “We have continued to work with NPC and its lenders to optimize NPC’s Pizza Hut restaurant footprint and strengthen the portfolio for the future, and today’s joint agreement to close up to 300 NPC Pizza Hut restaurants is an important step toward a healthier business.


    Pizza Hut products in the Philippines

    In North America, Pizza Hut has notably sold:

    • Pan pizza, baked in a pan with a crispy edge;
    • “Stuffed crust” pizza, with the outermost edge wrapped around a cylinder of mozzarella cheese;
    • “Hand-tossed”, more like traditional pizzeria crusts;
    • “Thin ‘N Crispy”, a thin, crisp dough which was Pizza Hut’s original style;
    • Dippin’ Strips pizza, a pizza cut into small strips that can be dipped into a number of sauces;
    • The P’Zone, a calzone with a marinara dipping sauce that comes in plain, Supremo, Meaty, and pepperoni
    • The Bigfoot pizza, its largest product
    • The Priazzo, a pie like pizza stuffed with pizza ingredients

    The “stuffed-crust” pizza was introduced on March 26, 1995. By the end of the year, it had become one of their most popular lines.[36]

    Regional differences are seen in the products and bases.[37] The company has localized to Southeast Asia with a baked rice dish called Curry Zazzle.[38][39]

    On May 9, 2008, Pizza Hut created “The Natural” pizza, which featured natural ingredients and was sold in SeattleDenver and Dallas. This was discontinued on October 27, 2009, in the Dallas market.

    In 1997, former Soviet Union leader Gorbachev starred in a Pizza Hut commercial with his granddaughter Anastasia Virganskaya to raise money for the Perestroyka Archives.[64] The ad “obviously exploited the shock value of having a former world leader appear… [and] played on the fact that Gorbachev was far more popular outside Russia than inside it”.


    Countries with active Pizza Hut locations

    Pizza Hut’s international presence under Yum! Brands includes:

    • Canada and Mexico in North America
    • Japan, India,[88][89] Bangladesh,[90][91] Pakistan, Sri Lanka, China, Saudi Arabia, United Arab Emirates, United Kingdom, European Union, Qatar, Philippines, Vietnam, Thailand, Malaysia, Singapore, Indonesia, Brunei, Hong Kong, Taiwan, South Korea, Myanmar, and Macau in Asia [92]
    • Egypt

    Pizza Hut’s China operations are part of the Yum! spinoff Yum China. Pizza Hut was one of the first American franchises to open in Iraq.


    Pizza Hut pizzas are commonly known to contain high amounts of salt.

    In the United Kingdom, Pizza Hut was criticized in October 2007 for the high salt content of its meals, some of which were found to contain more than twice the daily recommended amount of salt for an adult. The toppings that consumers prefer, however, (ham, sausage, bacon, etc.) naturally contain high levels of salt.

  • Safety !

    https://popularbelieves.com/?p=1149(opens in a new tab)


    Safety is the state of being “safe”, the condition of being protected from harm or other danger. Safety can also refer to the control of recognized hazards in order to achieve an acceptable level of risk.


    “After whiskey driving risky” Safety road sign in Ladakh, India

    Platform screen doors are primarily used for passenger safety

    There are two slightly different meanings of safety. For example, home safety may indicate a building’s ability to protect against external harm events (such as weather, home invasion, etc.), or may indicate that its internal installations (such as appliances, stairs, etc.) are safe (not dangerous or harmful) for its inhabitants.

    Discussions of safety often include mention of related terms. Security is such a term. With time the definitions between these two have often become interchanged, equated, and frequently appear juxtaposed in the same sentence. Readers unfortunately are left to conclude whether they comprise a redundancy. This confuses the uniqueness that should be reserved for each by itself. When seen as unique, as we intend here, each term will assume its rightful place in influencing and being influenced by the other.

    Safety is the condition of a “steady state” of an organization or place doing what it is supposed to do. “What it is supposed to do” is defined in terms of public codes and standards, associated architectural and engineering designs, corporate vision and mission statements, and operational plans and personnel policies. For any organization, place, or function, large or small, safety is a normative concept. It complies with situation-specific definitions of what is expected and acceptable.


    Safety can be limited in relation to some guarantee or a standard of insurance to the quality and unharmful function of an object or organization. It is used in order to ensure that the object or organization will do only what it is meant to do.

    It is important to realize that safety is relative. Eliminating all risk, if even possible, would be extremely difficult and very expensive. A safe situation is one where risks of injury or property damage are low and manageable.


    There is a distinction between products that meet standards, that are safe, and that merely feel safe. The highway safety community uses these terms:


    Normative safety is achieved when a product or design meets applicable standards and practices for design and construction or manufacture, regardless of the product’s actual safety history.


    Substantive or objective safety occurs when the real-world safety history is favorable, whether or not standards are met.


    Perceived or subjective safety refers to the users’ level of comfort and perception of risk, without consideration of standards or safety history. For example, traffic signals are perceived as safe, yet under some circumstances, they can increase traffic crashes at an intersection. Traffic roundabouts have a generally favorable safety record[3] yet often make drivers nervous.

    Low perceived safety can have costs. For example, after the 9/11 attacks in 2001, many people chose to drive rather than fly, despite the fact that, even counting terrorist attacks, flying is safer than driving. Perceived risk discourages people from walking and bicycling for transportation, enjoyment or exercise, even though the health benefits outweigh the risk of injury.[4]


    Also called social safety or public safety, security addresses the risk of harm due to intentional criminal acts such as assault, burglary or vandalism.

    Risks and responses

    Safety is generally interpreted as implying a real and significant impact on risk of death, injury or damage to property. In response to perceived risks many interventions may be proposed with engineering responses and regulation being two of the most common.

  • Manufacturing !

    https://popularbelieves.com/?p=1133(opens in a new tab)


    Manufacturing is the creation or production of goods with the help of equipment, labor, machines, tools, and chemical or biological processing or formulation. It is the essence of the secondary sector of the economy.[1][unreliable source?] The term may refer to a range of human activity, from handicraft to high-tech, but it is most commonly applied to industrial design, in which raw materials from the primary sector are transformed into finished goods on a large scale. Such goods may be sold to other manufacturers for the production of other more complex products (such as aircraft, household appliances, furniture, sports equipment or automobiles), or distributed via the tertiary industry to end users and consumers (usually through wholesalers, who in turn sell to retailers, who then sell them to individual customers).

    Manufacturing engineering is the field of engineering that designs and optimizes the manufacturing process, or the steps through which raw materials are transformed into a final product. The manufacturing process begins with the product design, and materials specification. These materials are then modified through manufacturing to become the desired product.

    Modern manufacturing includes all intermediate processes involved in the production and integration of a product’s components. Some industries, such as semiconductor and steel manufacturers, use the term fabrication instead.

    History and development[edit]

    Prehistory and ancient history[edit]

    See also: Industry (archaeology)Prehistoric technology, and Ancient technology

    Flint stone core for making blades, c. 40000 BP

    Human ancestors manufactured objects using stone and other tools long before the emergence of Homo sapiens about 200,000 years ago.[5] The earliest methods of stone tool making, known as the Oldowan “industry“, date back to at least 2.3 million years ago,[6] with the earliest direct evidence of tool usage found in Ethiopia within the Great Rift Valley, dating back to 2.5 million years ago.[7] To manufacture a stone tool, a “core” of hard stone with specific flaking properties (such as flint) was struck with a hammerstone. This flaking produced sharp edges which could be used as tools, primarily in the form of choppers or scrapers.

    Copper smelting is believed to have originated when the technology of pottery kilns allowed sufficiently high temperatures.[12] The concentration of various elements such as arsenic increase with depth in copper ore deposits and smelting of these ores yields arsenical bronze, which can be sufficiently work hardened to be suitable for manufacturing tools.[12]Bronze is an alloy of copper with tin; the latter being found in relatively few deposits globally caused a long time to elapse before true tin bronze became widespread. During the Bronze Age.

    Medieval and early modern[edit]

    The Middle Ages witnessed new inventions, innovations in the ways of managing traditional means of production, and economic growth. Papermaking, a 2nd-century Chinese technology, was carried to the Middle East when a group of Chinese papermakers were captured in the 8th century.

    First and Second Industrial Revolutions[edit]

    Main articles: Industrial Revolution and Second Industrial Revolution

    The Industrial Revolution was the transition to new manufacturing processes in Europe and the United States from 1760 to the 1830s.[23] This transition included going from hand production methods to machines, new chemical manufacturing and iron production processes, the increasing use of steam power and water power, the development of machine tools and the rise of the mechanized factory system.


    From a financial perspective, the goal of the manufacturing industry is mainly to achieve cost benefits per unit produced, which in turn leads to cost reductions in product prices for the market towards end customers.[43] This relative cost reduction towards the market, is how manufacturing firms secure their profit margins.[44]


    Manufacturing has unique health and safety challenges and has been recognized by the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) as a priority industry sector in the National Occupational Research Agenda (NORA) to identify and provide intervention strategies regarding occupational health and safety issues.[45][46]

    Manufacturing and investment[edit]

    Capacity use in manufacturing in the FRG and in the USA

    Surveys and analyses of trends and issues in manufacturing and investment around the world focus on such things as:

    • The nature and sources of the considerable variations that occur cross-nationally in levels of manufacturing and wider industrial-economic growth;
    • Competitiveness; and
    • Attractiveness to foreign direct investors.

    In addition to general overviews, researchers have examined the features and factors affecting particular key aspects of manufacturing development. They have compared production and investment in a range of Western and non-Western countries and presented case studies of growth and performance in important individual industries and market-economic sectors.

  • Chocolate!

    https://popularbelieves.com/?p=1086(opens in a new tab)

    Chocolate is a food made from roasted and ground cacao seed kernels that is available as a liquid, solid, or paste, either on its own or as a flavoring agent in other foods. Cacao has been consumed in some form since at least the Olmec civilization (19th-11th century BCE),[1][2] and the majority of Mesoamerican people ─ including the Maya and Aztecs ─ made chocolate beverages.

    Chocolate is one of the most popular food types and flavors in the world, and many foodstuffs involving chocolate exist, particularly desserts, including cakespuddingmoussechocolate brownies, and chocolate chip cookies. Many candies are filled with or coated with sweetened chocolate. Chocolate bars, either made of solid chocolate or other ingredients coated in chocolate, are eaten as snacks. Gifts of chocolate molded into different shapes (such as eggs, hearts, coins) are traditional on certain Western holidays, including ChristmasEasterValentine’s Day, and Hanukkah. Chocolate is also used in cold and hot beverages, such as chocolate milk and hot chocolate, and in some alcoholic drinks, such as creme de cacao.

    Although cocoa originated in the Americas, West African countries, particularly Côte d’Ivoire and Ghana, are the leading producers of cocoa in the 21st century, accounting for some 60% of the world cocoa supply.

    Mesoamerican usage

    Chocolate has been prepared as a drink for nearly all of its history. For example, one vessel found at an Olmec archaeological site on the Gulf Coast of Veracruz, Mexico, dates chocolate’s preparation by pre-Olmec peoples as early as 1750 BC.[6] On the Pacific coast of Chiapas, Mexico, a Mokaya archaeological site provides evidence of cocoa beverages dating even earlier to 1900 BC.[7][6] The residues and the kind of vessel in which they were found indicate the initial use of cocoa was not simply as a beverage, but the white pulp around the cocoa beans was likely used as a source of fermentable sugars for an alcoholic drink.

    An early Classic-period (460–480 AD) Maya tomb from the site in Rio Azul had vessels with the Maya glyph for cocoa on them with residue of a chocolate drink, which suggests that the Maya were drinking chocolate around 400 AD.[9] Documents in Maya hieroglyphs stated chocolate was used for ceremonial purposes in addition to everyday life.[10] The Maya grew cacao trees in their backyards[11] and used the cocoa seeds the trees produced to make a frothy, bitter drink.[12]

    Chocolate soon became a fashionable drink of the European nobility after the discovery of the Americas. The morning chocolate by Pietro Longhi; Venice, 1775–1780

    Until the 16th century, no European had ever heard of the popular drink from the Central American peoples.[13] Christopher Columbus and his son Ferdinand encountered the cocoa bean on Columbus’s fourth mission to the Americas on 15 August 1502, when he and his crew stole a large native canoe that proved to contain cocoa beans among other goods for trade.[20] Spanish conquistador Hernán Cortés may have been the first European to encounter it, as the frothy drink was part of the after-dinner routine of Montezuma.[9][21] José de Acosta, a Spanish Jesuit missionary who lived in Peru and then Mexico in the later 16th century, wrote of its growing influence on the Spaniards:

    Chocolate is commonly used as a coating for various fruits such as cherries and/or fillings, such as liqueurs

    Several types of chocolate can be distinguished. Pure, unsweetened chocolate, often called “baking chocolate”, contains primarily cocoa solids and cocoa butter in varying proportions. Much of the chocolate consumed today is in the form of sweet chocolate, which combines chocolate with sugar.

    White chocolate, although similar in texture to that of milk and dark chocolate, does not contain any cocoa solids that impart a dark color. In 2002, the US Food and Drug Administration established a standard for white chocolate as the “common or usual name of products made from cocoa fat (i.e., cocoa butter), milk solids, nutritive carbohydrate sweeteners, and other safe and suitable ingredients, but containing no nonfat cocoa solids”.[40]

    Chocolate is sold in chocolate bars, which come in dark chocolatemilk chocolate and white chocolate varieties. Some bars that are mostly chocolate have other ingredients blended into the chocolate, such as nuts, raisins, or crisped rice. Chocolate is used as an ingredient in a huge variety of bars, which typically contain various confectionary ingredients (e.g., nougatwaferscaramelnuts, etc.) which are coated in chocolate.

  • Animal!

    https://popularbelieves.com/?p=1074(opens in a new tab)


    Animals are multicellulareukaryotic organisms in the biological kingdom Animalia. With few exceptions, animals consume organic materialbreathe oxygen, are able to move, can reproduce sexually, and grow from a hollow sphere of cells, the blastula, during embryonic development. Over 1.5 million living animal species have been described—of which around 1 million are insects—but it has been estimated there are over 7 million animal species in total. Animals range in length from 8.5 micrometres (0.00033 in) to 33.6 metres (110 ft). They have complex interactions with each other and their environments, forming intricate food webs. The scientific study of animals is known as zoology.


    Animals are unique in having the ball of cells of the early embryo (1) develop into a hollow ball or blastula (2).

    Animals have several characteristics that set them apart from other living things. Animals are eukaryotic and multicellular.[16][17] Unlike plants and algae, which produce their own nutrients,[18] animals are heterotrophic,[17][19] feeding on organic material and digesting it internally.[20] With very few exceptions, animals respire aerobically.

    Reproduction and development

    See also: Sexual reproduction § Animals, and Asexual reproduction § Examples in animals

    Sexual reproduction is nearly universal in animals, such as these dragonflies.

    Nearly all animals make use of some form of sexual reproduction.[31] They produce haploid gametes by meiosis; the smaller, motile gametes are spermatozoa and the larger, non-motile gametes are ova.[32] These fuse to form zygotes,[33] which develop via mitosis into a hollow sphere, called a blastula.


    Predators, such as this ultramarine flycatcher (Ficedula superciliaris), feed on other animals.

    Animals are categorised into ecological groups depending on how they obtain or consume organic material, including carnivoresherbivoresomnivoresdetritivores,[44] and parasites.[45] Interactions between animals form complex food webs. In carnivorous or omnivorous species, predation is a consumer–resource interaction where a predator feeds on another organism (called its prey).[46] Selective pressures imposed on one another lead to an evolutionary arms race between predator and prey, resulting in various anti-predator adaptations.[47][48] Almost all multicellular predators are animals.[49] Some consumers use multiple methods; for example, in parasitoid wasps, the larvae feed on the hosts’ living tissues, killing them in the process,[50] but the adults primarily consume nectar from flowers.[51] Other animals may have very specific feeding behaviours, such as hawksbill sea turtles primarily eating sponges.

    The blue whale is the largest animal that has ever lived.

    The blue whale (Balaenoptera musculus) is the largest animal that has ever lived, weighing up to 190 tonnes and measuring up to 33.6 metres (110 ft) long.[63][64][65] The largest extant terrestrial animal is the African bush elephant (Loxodonta africana), weighing up to 12.25 tonnes[63] and measuring up to 10.67 metres (35.0 ft) long.[63] The largest terrestrial animals that ever lived were titanosaur sauropod dinosaurs such as Argentinosaurus, which may have weighed as much as 73 tonnes, and Supersaurus which may have reached 39 meters.

    Numbers and habitats

    The following table lists estimated numbers of described extant species for all the animal groups,[70] along with their principal habitats (terrestrial, fresh water,[71] and marine),[72] and free-living or parasitic ways of life.[73] Species estimates shown here are based on numbers described scientifically; much larger estimates have been calculated based on various means of prediction, and these can vary wildly. For instance, around 25,000–27,000 species of nematodes have been described, while published estimates of the total number of nematode species include 10,000–20,000; 500,000; 10 million; and 100 million.[74] Using patterns within the taxonomic hierarchy, the total number of animal species—including those not yet described—was calculated to be about 7.77 million in 2011.[75][76][b]

    lake is a naturally occurring, relatively large body of water localized in a basin completely surrounded by dry land,[1] with much slower-moving flow than any inflow or outflow streams that serve to feed or drain it.  Lakes lie completely on land and are separate from the ocean, although, like the much larger oceans, they form part of the Earth’s water cycle by serving as large standing pools of storage water. Most lakes are freshwater, but some are salt lakes with salinities even higher than that of seawater.

    Etymology, meaning, and usage of “lake”

    The word lake comes from Middle English lake (‘lake, pond, waterway’), from Old English lacu (‘pond, pool, stream’), from Proto-Germanic *lakō (‘pond, ditch, slow moving stream’), from the Proto-Indo-European root *leǵ- (‘to leak, drain’). Cognates include Dutch laak (‘lake, pond, ditch’), Middle Low German lāke (‘water pooled in a riverbed, puddle’) as in: de:Wolfslakede:ButterlakeGerman Lache (‘pool, puddle’), and Icelandic lækur (‘slow flowing stream’). Also related are the English words leak and leach.

    The majority of lakes on Earth are freshwater, and most lie in the Northern Hemisphere at higher latitudes.[13] Canada, with a deranged drainage system, has an estimated 31,752 lakes larger than 3 square kilometres (1.2 sq mi) in surface area.[14] The total number of lakes in Canada is unknown but is estimated to be at least 2 million.[15] Finland has 187,888 lakes of 500 square metres (5,400 sq ft) in area, or larger, of which 56,000 are large (10,000 square metres (110,000 sq ft) or larger).[16

    Tectonic lakes

    Tectonic lakes are lakes formed by the deformation and resulting lateral and vertical movements of the Earth’s crust. These movements include faulting, tilting, folding, and warping. Some of the largest lakes on Earth are rift lakes occupying rift valleys, e.g. Central African Rift lakes and Lake Baikal. Other well-known tectonic lakes, Caspian Sea, the Sea of Aral, and other lakes from the Pontocaspian occupy basins that have been separated from the sea by the tectonic uplift of the sea floor above the ocean level.

    Volcanic lakes

    Volcanic lakes are lakes that occupy either local depressions, e.g. craters and maars, or larger basins, e.g. calderas, created by volcanismCrater lakes are formed in volcanic craters and calderas, which fill up with precipitation more rapidly than they empty via either evaporation, groundwater discharge, or a combination of both. Sometimes the latter are called caldera lakes, although often no distinction is made. An example is Crater Lake in Oregon, in the caldera of Mount Mazama


  • Hyundai Sonata

    Hyundai redesigned the Sonata for 2018 bringing it in line with the rest of their products in terms of design and features. Up front the sedan gets the ‘cascading grille’ that endows it with an aura of luxury.  In the international market, the Sonata comes with a range of engine options to choose from – right from a 1.6-litre twin-turbo pushing out 178 horses to a 245bhp 2.0-litre twin turbo. 



  • Hyundai Santa

    A month prior to the global debut of the new SantaFe, Hyundai took the wraps off the new-generation model. here is a large honeycomb grille up front with the italic ‘H’ posing right in the centre. Just like the Kona, this one too has sleek headlights on either side and a large bumper.Under the hood, the SantaFe comes with three engine options – a 197bhp 2.2-litre diesel, a 2.0-litre diesel and a 2.0-litre turbo petrol. All three engines will come paired with an 8-speed transmission. The new SantaFe is likely to make its way to India in the first quarter of 2019.
