Today, as usual, I walked into the company kitchen to get coffee. When I open my own firm I will definitely get a similar kind of a coffee maker. After it's used, each individual pack is automatically disposed of my the coffee maker into a bin. Usually the people here are good at emptying it requires it after it made them coffee but today wasn't the case. Somehow it always happens that the small people in the company dont empty it out, which in many ways doesn't make sence. Many times when I had a problem with it, it was our VP or some other person up there at the top helping me. It seems like the small people think they are above emptying a bi. In a coffee maker, unlike the people at the top, so I called it a small person syndrome. I wonder if this is only the case in our company.

Emeralds are green colored Beryls. They are essentially the same stone as Aquamarine. Some other stones from Beryl family are Red Emerald, Heliodor and Goshenite. In Greek, emerald is smaragdos, but in Middle English the stone was called esmeralde.
Egyptians associated the stone with the rebirth and fertility due to its green color. It was thought to help in childbirth and improve fertility. Most natural emeralds have some flaw in them because they grow in other minerals. Emerald is also a birth stone of May.

Copper has a very wide variety of uses. It is literally everywhere. It is present in electrical wiring, cars, computers, etc. In addition to that, copper is used to create beautiful pieces of jewelry. One of the biggest and most famous examples of copper is the Statue of Liberty, it contains about 180,000 pounds of copper. The metal origins contradict with its wide technological use. The name copper comes from the Latin word cyprium, Island of Cyprus. The Island is the sacred Island of Aphrodite, the goddess of love. The metal was named after the island in Roman times because a lot of it was mined on Cyprus. Before that it was known as chalkos. In alchemy the symbol of copper is the symbol of Venus.
Brass is made when Zinc is alloyed with Copper.
