    Manometers and pressure gauges are the devices used to measure pressure force at a point of any fluid which may be liquid or gas.

    Manometers works on the principle of balancing the fluid column with the same or another fluid column generally with the fluid whose specific gravity is greater than the fluid in the first column so as to bring the pressures in two columns to an equilibrium condition.

    Pressure gauges are simpler to function and to understand as well. A pressure gauge consists of a series of springs that are compressed when in contact with any compressive force.

    The point where the pressure is to be measured is just connected to the pressure gauge, the pressure force induces compressions in the springs and pressure readings can be directly found in the dial gauge.

    Byju’s pay to BCCI a whopping Rs.1.56 crore for every ICC match and Rs.4.61 crore for each and every bilateral match. Actually, many do not know the fact that popular smartphone manufacturing company Oppo had transferred its BCCI advertising rights to online learning platform Byju’s in a deal that took place in September 2019.

    Which means, Oppo will no longer advertise its brand on Indian players’ Jerseys. What’s interesting here is that the deal between BCCI and Oppo ends in 2022 but yet, the company had decided to transfer its advertising rights to Byju’s for some reason.

    As per the rules, both the brands now have to pay BCCI an additional 10% fee as there has been a transfer in the rights. The official announcement from Oppo revealed that the company is now more focused on building manufacturing units across India rather than burning lots of money in advertising. The brand is now said to have enough popularity across the country to grow its sales year-on-year.

    Byju’s, on the other hand, is a very popular online learning platform in the country with over 30 million registered users out of which over 2 million are its paid subscribers. So, now, being the official sponsor of the Indian Cricket Team until 2022, Byju’s could be benefited a lot and already its revenue is surging up.

    Unacademy is a good online learning platform that consists of thousands of courses on almost every competitive exam in India. The platform was developed by Roman Saini who is a former IAS officer and so, it has got a lot of popularity in the country especially among all the IAS aspirants. In my opinion, Unacademy is good for IAS preparation as the platform comes up with many pros like live classes, live discussion, doubt-clarifying sessions, Mega Quizzes, MCQs sessions, etc.

    Unacademy is good for all those IAS aspirants who are looking for a perfect online learning platform which helps them prepare and crack this toughest exam by studying at home. The biggest advantage of Unacademy is its pricing structure. The pricing is very simple and straight with no strings attached.

    Union Public Service Commission (UPSC) exam courses are priced at Rs.8,000 per month. The highest plan you can opt for will cost you around Rs.48,000 per two years. The prices are very less when compared to all other offline options you have in the country. Because, any offline course would usually cost you over one lakh and so, this is the best option available to all the IAS aspirants.

    However, there are online learning platforms that are very popular as well. Byju’s is one such online learning platform that is preferred by many students. The only difference between Byju’s and Unacademy is the fact that Byju’s comes up with a whole single course for all the IAS aspirants whereas Unacademy is a mixture of courses offered by several teachers.

    In my opinion, Unacademy is not overrated. But, however, it is like any other learning platform which just helps you a little bit in cracking competitive exams like Civil Services Exam (CSE), NEET, IIT. The only thing you need to remember forever is the fact that your hard work and smart work are the two things that bring success to you.

    If a buyer backs out, he/she can still get the earnest money back from the seller.

    But, the seller returns back the earnest money only when the buyer comes up with good reasons like not happy with the house’s design, amenities, etc and this totally comes under house inspection.

    So, if a buyer is not happy after the house inspection, he can ask for a refund and the seller has to return back the earnest money as per the sales contract they both signed before depositing the money.

    Earnest money can just be seen as a security deposit to show some interest in a property and it will usually be returned in most cases.

    But, when the buyer is perfectly alright with the house inspection and backs out when he needs to complete the registration process, the seller can keep the deposit money with him. This rarely happens as most of the buyers will come up with their actual opinion soon after they complete the property inspection.

    In the case of Due Diligence Money, the deposit money will not be refunded to the buyer whatsoever. But this will not be the case with earnest money. It is something that is given in good faith and to impress the seller and to let him know that we are really interested in buying the property if it’s perfectly OK.

    In simple words, earnest money can be refunded if the buyer is not happy after the house/property inspection.

    Due Diligence Money is the amount a buyer gives a seller to show that he/she is serious about owning the property.

    When the seller accepts the money, he/she will give the buyer some time called the “Due Diligence Time/Period”. The buyer will have to clear all his doubts regarding buying the house like loans, down payments, inspection, etc and should complete the transaction within that given time period.

    During Due Diligence Time, the seller won’t sell the house to any other party as per the contract.

    If the buyer fails to fulfill the contract by not making the whole payment or fails to take a loan to buy the property within time, then the seller will have the right to cancel the due diligence contract and keep the due diligence money with him. And also, the buyer cannot demand to return the due diligence money as per the contract.

    The buyer can also move the court if the seller fails to fulfill the due diligence contract by selling the house to another person during the due diligence time. This is how due diligence money works and hope you got the point.

    When it comes to the difference between due diligence money and earnest money, you need to know that the only difference is due diligence money cannot be refunded as it’s an actual contract between the buyer and the seller. Whereas, the earnest money is the amount that can be returned back to the buyer as per his/her wish.

    Earnest money is something that you pay to the seller just to show that you are willing to buy the property before anyone else tries to buy. It can be returned back if the buyer later decides that the property is a good fit for him.

    I hope you got an idea about both due diligence money and earnest money.

    To add a location on Instagram –

    1. Open the Instagram app on your smartphone.
    2. Upload the video or picture that you want to share
    3. Use the Instagram filters to enhance the look of your photo.
    4. Now, click on “Add Location
    5. Type the location name in the search bar.
    6. Choose your location from the suggestions.
    7. Click “Share

    This is how you can add a location after uploading a photo or a video on Instagram. Also, you will be able to change the location of your previous photos and videos which were shared before.

    How to add a custom location on Instagram?

    To add a custom location on Instagram, you need to first create the location on your Facebook account. To do so – 

    • Check on your smartphone whether the location service is turned on or off. If it is Off, switch it On.
    • Open the Facebook app on your mobile.
    • At the bottom of the Share box, you’ll find an option called “Check-In
    • You’ll be prompted to enter your location name.
    • Type the name of your location and you’ll start getting suggestions.
    • If you do not find your desired location in the suggestions, click the “Add” button.
    • That’s it. Your new custom location will now be available on your Instagram app.
    • Open Instagram and share a new post or picture or video along with your custom location.

    Note: Every name you type in the location field may not be available as other people might have already created that. So, you can always try to be unique and type your desired name and save it as a custom location.

    What to do if your Facebook location doesn’t appear on Instagram?

    The most common reason for this to happen is – you might have created a location that isn’t near you or it’s in another state or country. This may trigger Facebook and Instagram algorithms to not show your custom location when you try to share a post. The best thing you can do when you get encountered with this situation is to create a location that you usually check In or the area that is nearby.

    If you think this is not the actual issue then, you may try changing the category of your location. This may help sometimes. Or else, you may have to Check Into the place frequently so that Instagram suggest you with the right place or at least a location that was created by other Instagram users. Also, try to share a picture with the same Check-In location on your Facebook account. With this, you can easily make your Instagram account sync with your Facebook account.

    If everything that I mentioned didn’t work for you, then there is nothing you can do except wait for some time for at least a few hours so that your Instagram account’s locations get updated and get synced from your Facebook account.

    Fun fact: Instagram is currently owned by Facebook. Facebook bought Instagram in April 2012 for a whopping $1 Billion.

    Hope this answer helped you in adding a location on your Instagram app. Upvote my answer if you find it helpful 🙂

    American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals or ASPCA will spend its money on providing shelters to all the pets across the United States. So, the money that you donate to ASPCA will help pets which have no shelter. ASPCA money is also utilized to organize several programs that educate people on how to be compassionate towards animals.

    ASPCA is a very well-known organization in the U.S which gets funds from almost every part of the country. It manages to raise funds worth over hundreds of millions of dollars every year which clearly shows how the organization is working hard for the welfare of the animals in the United States.

     

    Every dollar you donate to the ASPCA will not go in vain as the money will be spent either for the medical services to animals or for building shelters or for conducting several programs to bring in a change in the mindset of people in order to prevent any cruel act against animals in the country.

    However, same as many organizations, ASPCA also has its own functional costs or expenses. As per the official records, this non-profit organization spends more than 30% of its funds or revenue to pay salaries to its employees. As it is a huge network, ASPCA currently employed over 2 million people and so, the major amount of its funds go in the form of salaries.

    Also, the organization has to spend a lot of its money on its offices, infrastructure, maintenance, etc. So, around 12% of ASPCA money goes in the form of its office maintenance costs as it has offices all over the nation. What’s really interesting is that ASPCA spends over 15% of its total revenue for advertisements and promotions which in turn bring them money in the form of funds.

    So, I think you’ve now got a better idea of where ASPCA money go. Hope this answer helps 🙂

    Cincinnati is an awesome city that lies on the banks of the River Ohio. It is said to be one of the major cities in Ohio with some great history cherished by its people all the time. The city’s architecture is one-of-its-kind which dates back to the early 18th century.

    Before going to answer your questions, I would like to wish you a happy journey to the city of Cincinnati 🙂 and also, don’t forget to include the things that I mention in this answer in your trip itinerary. Also, let me know by replying to this answer if your friends liked my list of unique things.

    As we are talking about Cincinnati, it is highly important for us to know a bit about its history before we go into any other matters. According to many reports, the history of Cincinnati begins with Colonel Robert Patterson, Mathias Denman, and Israel Ludlow – three explorers settling down in the place. It is the time when this place came into light.

    Another historical fact about this city is – it had a total population of about 2,000 citizens during 1800s while the present-day population according to the 2018 census, it is 3lakh+ making it one of the most populous cities in the country.

    Unique things to do in Cincinnati –

    1) A visit to Cincinnati Fire Museum will make your day as you go through the valuable artifacts and the greatest history of firefighting. Your fun trip to Cincinnati will turn into an educational tour which lets you gain some knowledge as you check out the hundreds of years old tools, vehicles, and lots of firefighting stuff which blows your mind.

    Enter this historic firehouse at a ticket price of $8 per adult whereas there is an admission cost of $6 for children but it’s worth checking out this one.

    2) Another great place to visit in this city is the Cincinnati Observatory which was established in the 19th century and is toted to be one of the greatest historic spots with lots of astronomical stuff to explore. Cincinnati Observatory, which sits on the Lookout Mountain, is an oldest observatory in the U.S. with a mind-blowing refracting telescope installed in it.

    Make sure to visit this place during the afternoon hours between 12 pm and 4 pm. And also, it is open to the public from Monday to Friday every week. Enjoy exploring the space through one of the oldest telescopes in the country.

    3) The third one in my list of unique things to do in Cincinnati is checking out the Mushroom House which is located in the Hyde Park Avenue. What’s really fascinating about this house is – It is a real home with unique architecture which simply resembles a mushroom. People can get inside this mushroom house to find out super cool staircases, walls, and lot more which makes you feel like you are living inside a mushroom.

    These are some unique things to do in Cincinnati. To answer your second question, I only recommend you to take some essentials so that your backpack doesn’t become a burden to you. I think the history one was already answered in the above paragraphs.

    Nearby places and attractions – Newport Aquarium, Krohn Observatory, Cincinnati Zoo, and Botanical Garden, Cincinnati Art Museum, etc.
