I can relate to you cause I have a kid too :) You can start with Lightbot, which is an App in Android and introduces kids to complicated concepts in programming through simple and funny games. Post that you can let him try Scratch. After that he should be ready for full fledged coding.

Try and contact civil contractors, builders or real estate developers in your city to find whether they have any supervisor jobs available.

Other than this you can also try contacting job consultancies in your city. When you visit them a resume that has your experience in the said domain would help you out the most.

Do dogs sweat?

On a hot summer day or after strenuous exercise, most pups let their tongues hang out of their mouths as they huff and puff or they lie outstretched on the cool floor. It's not uncommon for dogs to pant after a long run, but do they also sweat?
Dogs pant as a means of evaporative cooling: when a dog gets hot, it will open its mouth and breathe heavily. As water evaporates from the dog's tongue, nasal passages and lungs, this helps lower its body temperature.
While dogs primarily use panting to cool themselves down, they also sweat — but not where you may think
Dogs actually sweat through their paws, Carrier said. In 2011, she was working with beagles in her lab, and while checking to ensure their nails were well trimmed, she noticed something peculiar in several of the dogs. Paw pads are a specialized type of skin that's heavily keratinized, to make them tough for walking on, but these dogs had paws that were damp — and in some cases, they were even dripping with sweat.
In several of the animals, this led to a great deal of pain because the skin was softer and more delicate than a normal paw pad."It's like having an open blister," Carrier told Live Science.
Carrier's research was the first to describe hyperhidrosis, or excessive sweating, in beagles.
But the sweat glands in the dogs' feet may also serve another purpose, according to Carrier.
"They do have true sweat glands in their paw pads, [but] that's not enough to cool them down," she said.
Panting cools a much greater surface area than a dog's paws would. According to Carrier, experts speculate that sweat on a dog's paw pads actually has more to do with traction than temperature. In other words, it makes their paws tackier and better at gripping the ground.
"The one thing I always tell people is a normal dog foot should smell like they just had their paws in a bag of corn chips, because they do sweat through their feet," Carrier said. "It has a salty smell."
Dogs also have sweat glands in their noses, but again, they're not necessarily for cooling purposes, Carrier said. While it remains unproved, Carrier said the thinking is that a damp nose better attracts scent molecules to the olfactory center. The canine sense of smell is famous, and its power has recently been harnessed to sniff out diabetes, cancer, and even dangerous infections like C. difficile. A 2012 research study conducted at the VU University Medical Centre in the Netherlands trained a beagle to sit or lie down when the scent of the bacterium was detected. The dog performed with impressive accuracy, correctly identifying 25 out of 30 infected samples and 265 out of 270 controls.
In comparison studies, where they took fecal samples and did a side-by-side lab test, the trained dogs were nearly as accurate, if not better, than the test.

What was the reason for the popularity of Asbestos in various construction activities?

Asbestos was extremely popular as a roofing product since the 1920's. This was because of a lot of properties that asbestos had. It was found to be very versatile and could be used a wide variety of applications. It was found to be resistant towards heat. For this reason, it was used for roofing since it could both provide insulation from the heat and was fire resistant. As an added bonus it was also resistant to corrosion and adverse weather conditions.

It also had a long life expectancy of almost 30-50 year. Because of its durability, it was also used as a component in glues, mortars and finishing cement. Asbestos while used mostly on roofing products was also used for other purposes like pipe covering, insulation materials, drywall, siding etc.

It wasn't until many years later in the 1970's was the carcinogenic properties of asbestos were found out and its popularity reduced.

Which method is better to reduce weight - Reducing calorie consumption or increasing the rate of exercise?

1 user answered

Niteen Kumar, Raipur
User, Level 8 Contributor
The important thing to note in weight loss is to use up or burn more calories than what you consume. In general reducing calorie consumption through dieting seems to be easier for most people rather than exercising and other physical activity.

But in general doing both seems to be the better method of getting to that ideal weight. This is because exercising can help you burn more calories than just regular dieting. It will also help you maintain than weight loss. In fact, studies conducted have shown that people who lose weight via exercising are more likely to maintain it than people who lost weight via dieting. For people who lost weight through drastic dieting, they are more likely to gain weight within the six months after they stopped dieting.
