The gravitational center of the earth is likely to fluctuate due to the orbit and the gravity of the moon and would therefore only be determined momentarily. See the animation I made of what I meant. Presumably the gravitation of the sun and the orbit of the earth around the sun also have an influence on it.
If "Center of the World" should mean "center of the Universe", then the center should be at the starting point of the Big bang. Or at the point from which the expansion of the universe started and relatively to it is still ongoing.
From a philosophical point of view, the center of the world is very fuzzy and cannot be determined with any certainty for the time being. :-)
Many religions have a center of their world. In example Christians and Jews see the center in the "Holy Land". Muslim in Mecca. Also from this points of view an answer is likely to be relatively unclear..
Because I know only one Hiver in real life, I wouldn't buy such cards very often. Maybe for his birthdays. However, I wouldn't mind receiving such cards from other people from time to time for my birthdays, at Yule or as gifts in between. ^^ I would even add it to my wish list for the Yules.
In order for such gift cards for hivers to be purchased by non-hivers, the payment would have to go through mainstream payment providers. My grandma would quickly despair of Coinbase and other exchange providers, in example.
Such cards could be really good bait to lure None-Hivers to the Hive. Would be a good idea for Hiveonboard.
First of all, thank you for developing and providing Quello. I really like it.
Currently the only feature I would miss would be a language switch. This could be realized by language-first-tags. Whenever the first tag indicates a known language, it could be sorted by the language switch.
Welcome to our wonderful Hive.
The answer depends on what you plan to do on Hive. If you are a blogger my answer would be to find your niche(s) and start blogging well. I am a blogger. So I can only give an answer for the blogging topic. (I am not experienced in the investment matter.)
Having a certain niche is very helpful in having fewer competitors and likely targeting interested users who can only or also can find the specific type of content on your blog. But be aware. A niche can also be so deep in the dark that nobody would care about the content in it. Even when other bloggers found your specific niche already for their own blogs, decide if it could yet be a niche in your own mother tongue.
Share your content regularly to generate interest and show that you're engaged. Always look at the quality of your posts (grammar, form ...). Be authentic, be yourself. If others have the feeling that you are only trying to get likes with little effort and fake entertainment, it will go bad.
The most users also very like images. Use photos whenever you can. Inter alia, most users usually choose to take a closer look at a post when they are interested in the cover image of a post in the listings. And they might decide against taking a closer look if the cover photo doesn't look interesting. The other side is the reading flow itself. Sample pictures and funny picture supplements can ease the flow and the fun of reading immensely.
Find appropriate tags to add to your posts. Tags categorizes your posts, so other users can find them easily by using keywords.
I've been playing it for over 2 months.
However, I've only been making progress for about 2 weeks. Because I purchased some cards. Winning cards during a session is very rare. But without good cards, there is no progress.
It is not directly pay-to-win. But it is pay-or-spend-a-lot-of-time-to-win.
Anyway, I love this game and its very beautifully painted cards. I recently completed the "Saturday headline" mission. Since then I have been earning at least 3000-4000 Starbits(1.5 - 2 Hive) a day. I will earn soon even more because I also bought the "Mid Range Guitar". So now I can play the higher missions whenever my pizza boxes and Wiskey bottles are full.
For anyone new in this game... Just raise your fans and your luck. Then it goes straight to Hollywood. And you need a lot of money in the show business. The really good cards (i.ex. for raising fans) are very expensive.
I would say across the board that the language of the ancient Maya is the hardest language for you. Just because I think this language is most dissimilar to your own mother tongue. How difficult a language is depends on the historical and current distance to your own mother tongue.
For example, my mother tongue is German. It is a Germanic language, such as Dutch, Swedish, Norwegian, Danish, Icelandic and English. I understand Dutch and English very well as German. I also often understand Danish well. With Swedish, Icelandic and Norwegian it gets a little more difficult and I have to listen carefully to understand something. These are all languages that have a strong historical relationship with my mother tongue. Although my mother tongue was also influenced by Latin, I understand at most 5 out of 100 words in Italian or Spanish. Aside from the intersection of Latin, these languages don't have many historical ties to my language.
For this reason, languages outside the Germanic language area should be very difficult for me, and languages that have no Germanic influence at all may be the most difficult for me to learn. The Japanese language should be the most difficult language for me to learn. Maybe it is the Arabian or the Mongolian language. But it's definitely dolphin. ^^
Apart from the similarity to your own language, it is probably also the complexity on which it depends whether the respective language is difficult to learn.
Which is your mother tongue?
I believe that the large crowds can be easily controlled by artificially created trends. Advertising departments of large companies such as Facebook as owners of WhatsApp can invest very large sums in such trend creations. They always show the potential new users that they have to join the trend in order not to stay behind. This works even if there is no real trend yet. Media is power. If you have the money, you do have the media, you do have the power, you do have the users.
A friend told me about the Hive and this nice community. I have rarely used social media lately before I came to the Hive. But it seemed interesting to me, because of the absence of direct censorship and the general credo of appreciation. Most Hivians put a lot of effort into their posts and hardly anyone plays the troll. This would also be reason enough for me to participate in the Hive.
Likewise the possibility to influence the politics of this community with my increasing HP attracted me to participate here.
So my goal is to write good blog articles and being a good Hivian, because I love the idea of this network.
I prefer to use cash, simply because of anonymity. So I purposely do not use credit cards or mobile payments.
There are some scandals in my country regarding the misuse of (digital) personal information by authorities. I don't want to give them more power than they already take themselves. And I also don't want my purchasing behavior to be profiled by corporations and that this information is resold.
It might help if as many hivers as possible would do a power-up from their liquid Hives so that there isn't as much liquid Hive on the go. And many more hivers would have to buy/invest in Hive Power every month.
