This is very important, very. The only thing I’ve noticed that visitors to Ireland of partying age get wrong, consistently, is the ’rounds’ system in a Pub.
If you are in a pub and drinking with anyone, stranger, friend, classmate, workmate it doesn’t matter and you are about to order a drink, it is extremely rude not to offer to buy your companions a drink too.

A woman who just recently gave birth in a Japanese hospital shared some of the pictures of the food that she had while staying in the maternity ward. And much to everyone’s surprise, the food was very enticing – based on how it was presented.
The unnamed woman stayed in a hospital in Japan for 12 days. During her time there, she took the opportunity to document all the food that they served by picturing them and sharing it on Imgur.
The police force is a ubiquitous presence around the world. No matter what country you go to, there’s some form of law enforcement. The process through which an aspiring police officer goes through varies depending on where in the world you are. Without a doubt, every country requires training before entering service. We’ll start with home before comparing police training around the world.
It is projected that by the year 2050 the people who make up our American melting pot will reach an ultimate level of mixed ethnic heritage, resulting in the minority truly becoming anyone who is of one racial background.
National Geographic decided to explore the look of the “average American” with a little help from photographer Martin Schoeller and a bit of digital manipulation, creating a series of portraits that show what these future Americans will look like.
