How to find cosmetics or perfume manufacture and expiry date?

cosmetics and perfumes

It is quite easy to find cosmetics manufacture and expiry date by the batch code using free cosmetic calculator website: Checkcosmetic

Cosmetics with shelf life less than 30 months must be marked with “Best before” date according to common regulations in most countries. Such products can no longer meet safety requirements as soon as expiry date has been passed.

It’s not mandatory to have such labelling for the cosmetics with shelf life over 30 months. Most of these products should not be harmful even after the expiration, but they can change smell, colour, texture or simply become useless i.e. purchasing such products would mean waste of money.
You'll be very surprised by the volumes of cosmetic products with past expiry date sold online by some retailers...

Cosmetic calculator will help you to find out manufacture date of cosmetics or a perfume by the batch code or lot number, it also provides general information about product shelf life.

How to disable Gmail spam filter?

There could be many reasons why you would want to do this, most common - you get more and more good e-mails into spam folder.
Ironically, today in my Gmail spam folder I found message from Gmail itself called "Welcome to the new Gmail inbox"...

In short - you cannot disable Gmail spam filter, but you can create your own filter which will override Gmail spam filter in some way:

- go to menu Settings >> Filters >> Create a new filter
- in the field "Has the words" put this: from:(@)
- click on "Create filter with this search »"
- tick the "Never send it to Spam" option
- click "Create the filter"

This should work.

How to make Ice Tea?

Ice Tea

Tea brand Twinings suggested this Ice Tea recipe to explore the cool side of their Fruit Infusions:

It couldn't be easier to make a delicious fruit iced tea! Take 8 fruit tea bags (Twinings Cold Infuse teas are perfect!) and make a strong brew in a teapot.

Fill a glass with ice then half fill with your chilled infusion. Top up with something cool and fizzy - could be soda water, but a sparkling white wine would make for a more grown up treat.

P.S. Twinings offers the array of Kids Cold Infuse teas too!
Great way to offer kids healthy drinks.

Where to buy high quality freshly roasted coffee? (United Kingdom or Europe)

Whittard of Chelsea has been trading since 1886 with many years experience in importing and roasting coffee from all corners of the world. With an extensive network of gifted buyers, they’re able to bring together what they consider to be the finest collection of high quality coffee beans ready to be freshly roasted to order.

Coffee starts to lose it’s freshness the moment it interacts with the air around it; that’s why they’re strong believers in only roasting to order, and packing their coffees immediately in one-way valve, foil fresh bags. This way, the CO2 in the bags can escape, but air cannot get in. Using this method, their freshly roasted coffee will stay in perfect condition unopened for up to 9 months. Once opened, their coffee should be kept in an airtight container to extend the life of the bean. Coffee beans can also be frozen, providing an even longer means of preserving that freshly roasted taste an aroma.

Whittard of Chelsea currently offers over 30 sumptuous origin coffees, along with their very own secret recipe blends and flavoured coffees. With so many unique and varied flavours to try, they truly believe they offer beans for the perfect brew for every palette. They also offer fabulous gift hampers that make perfect presents for coffee novices and seasoned connoisseurs alike. Along with their extensive coffee range, Whittard of Chelsea also stocks over 25 loose-leaf teas; a refreshing break from the usual flavour lacking options at the local supermarket.

Everyone has his or her own preferred brewing method for coffee, and Whittard of Chelsea aims to cater for all requirements by offering a full spectrum of grind options, all the way from whole bean to Turkish grind and everything in between. Simply select your preferred method when adding to the basket and they’ll freshly grind your order before packaging.

How to get rid of toenail fungus?

There are quite a few ways to do it, but widely available without a prescription and seem most effective for moderate fungal nail infection are the following treatments:
  • Antifungal nail lacquer, such as Curanail (applied once a week for 9-12 months)
  • Canespro - ointment tube and set of waterproof plasters (applied every day for 2-3 weeks)
  • Weak solution of white vinegar - cheap and effective method: mix one part of white vinegar with two parts of water, soak the affected toe or just generously apply time to time solution to the affected toe nail by cotton bud for about 30 minutes daily after having a shower or bath, just before going to sleep. Do this until the fungus is gone. Although this method seems like quite a commitment it is very effective.

How to find position of particular aircraft anywhere in the world?

find position of particular aircraft anywhere in the world

Flightradar24 is a flight tracking service that provides you with free real-time info about thousands of aircraft around the world.
Flightradar24 has the largest online aviation database. The data is updated in real-time. Search for a particular flight, aircraft, or airport to get in-depth information.
Their service is currently available online and for your iOS (iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch) or Android device plus for Windows 8 and your Mac OS computer.

The technology this service uses to receive flight information from aircraft is called ADS-B. Roughly 60% of all passenger aircraft around the world are equipped with an ADS-B transponder. However, this percentage will continue to grow.

In addition to ADS-B data, Flightradar24 also displays data from the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA). This data provides full coverage of the airspace above the United States and Canada. However, this data is slightly delayed (up to 5 minutes) due to FAA regulations. Because of this delay, the planes generated from FAA data are of a different colour (orange) than the planes generated from real-time data (yellow).
