It’s Like Uber, But For Mangoes

A Saudi-Arabian entrepreneur has launched a successful mango delivery site.

Walk into any grocery store in Amman, Jordan, and you’ll be confronted with about 70 varieties of packaged mango juice. Saudi Arabia and the U.A.E are some of the top mango-importing countries in the world. And there’s nothing quite like a chunky mango smoothie purchased from a disreputable street cart on the side of some busy road in Cairo. The point is: people in the region fucking love mangoes. Now, they can have mangoes delivered right to their door through a service called Mango Jazan. It’s a delivery service that delivers nothing but mangoes.

Most of the Middle East’s mangoes come from India or Pakistan, but a small region in Saudi Arabia called Jazan has become well known for producing some of the juiciest mangoes around. It used to be pretty tough to get your hands on a box of Jazan mangoes—they’re primarily traded locally—but the region is now making them available to a wider consumer base through its delivery system. And people are really into it: Since the site launched in 2012, it has acquired 20,000 users.

“By selling products from the best farms, we would achieve another goal,” said founder Abdul Rahman Sahili. “Which is to help farmers market their products more efficiently and encourage them to increase their production.”

Major US phone carriers have yet to build out the infrastructure necessary to provide a consistent 5G experience, so Apple didn't feel it necessary to integrate the technology into its latest iPhone.

A dramatic new feature on the iPhone 11 Pro is its three camera lenses. The three lenses give users the the original wide, plus ultrawide and telephoto options.

We often dismiss our dreams as nonsensical dispatches from the mind while we're deep asleep. But recent research proves that our dreams can definitely affect our waking lives.

People often dream about their significant others and studies show it actually affects how we behave towads them the next day.

"A lot of people don't pay attention to their dreams and are unaware of the impact they have on their state of mind," said Dylan Selterman, psychology lecturer at the University of Maryland, says according to The Huffington Post. "Now we have evidence that there is this association."

It's fun to go to a party, talk to strangers, and try to guess where they're from just by their accents and use of language. It's called 'soda' on the East Coast and 'pop' in the Midwest, right? Well, it looks like a new study has been able to determine where a Humpback whale has been and who he's been hanging out with during his awesome travels just from his song.
