Holiday Swap – The Tinder of Traveling

Travel/AppWatch

One thing that can make your life richer without the moolah is traveling. Though, there’s a double-edged sword on that one because traveling can be costly.

Currently nicknamed the “Travel Tinder” by Business Insider, Holiday Swap is looking to disrupt the travel industry by making world traveling affordable.

It’s no question that people wish to travel more and more and for cheaper. If there’s a way to keep those costs down, it allows us to be able to gain more time back and be able to use that extra money in our pockets.

Holiday Swap is on its way to disrupt the travel industry by making it more accessible to more of us, particularly millennials. Millennials – everyone wants more with less – and they tend to save less money than people traditionally did before.

Technology has meant that the world is more accessible to us at the palm of our hands. And with this, they’re trying to allow a sharing economy, using the bed that you sleep in at night to give you that accessibility to save more money and spend it on the essentials such as flights, experiences, tours, and more.

The way Holiday Swap works is putting your place up there. It can be a room, a house, penthouse, or villa. Holiday Swap lets you set your preferences accordingly. Be as wild as you wish and swap with people. All you do is swipe and like the places – you’ll then match up.

What’s more is you can see who has liked you and start building your community. Once you’ve matched with people, you can chat with them and see if you want to swap with them on dates or if you want to be hosted by them. For example, you can go on and say, “I have these people I’ve matched within France so I’ll see if they’d like to swap with me on a certain date.”

Hey, Check Out this Sonogram of these Baby…Tiger Sharks? | NewsWatch Shark Week

By: Kassidy Coleman

 

Okay, so we’ve all seen sonograms of human babies, but have you ever seen a sonogram of a pregnant shark? Probably not. Recently featured on Discovery Channel’s SHARK WEEK, researchers caught a 12.5 foot pregnant tiger shark, discovered she was pregnant and carrying twenty frighteningly, very well-developed pups.

Just in case you missed it, here’s the video:

 

 

Honestly, we are a little freaked out by the very sharp teeth on these twenty baby sharks while they’re still in the womb, but it is pretty cool that this is the first-ever sonogram of a pregnant tiger shark.

 

In the past, it was fairly difficult for researchers to really study endangered sharks’ reproductive habits, which is essential to understand in order to help protect them. Scientists studying these sharks would have to kill the mother and their unborn in order to learn, which obviously isn’t realistic for when an animal is endangered. One researcher, James Sulikowski (also known by many as Dr. Shark), from the University of New England (UNE) wanted to learn more about sharks and their reproductive habits without having to kill and gut them.

 

So five years ago, Sulikowski completely adapted the sonogram technology we’re all familiar with that’s typically used on pregnant women, to be used on pregnant sharks and other endangered fish species, like the sturgeon.

 

Dr. Shark stated, “There is so much that we still don’t know, like where different species of sharks go to give birth. And so much that we think we do know, like the length of gestation of our local spiny dogfish that we are just now learning through the use of this technology and tagging that is just plain wrong. I love that. I love challenging accepted science. For me, it’s always about being inquisitive, testing what we think we know, asking what we don’t and figuring out new ways to come up with answers to questions we didn’t even know to ask just a few years ago.”

 

We are super excited to see this technology advance even further to help save the tiger shark as well as other endangered animals before it’s too late.
