Strictly For Food Lovers

In Polarity Technologies Ltd we love good food! (I bet you already know that). We are huge foodies and we often find ourselves scoping out the latest and greatest places to eat. We are excited to go to new places and try different dishes, and Fork Food Market is the perfect excuse!

”The idea is to start a revolution in Cyprus for the thing we love most: FOOD! We want to introduce a new way of providing food, a way that is already established in other countries. 
So we decided to organise Fork Food Market, a mobile food market, which is organised from time to time in different areas and spaces. 
In each market, approximately 8 vendors have the opportunity to offer their food from mobile stalls. We strive to offer not only quality street food, but also healthy food! For this reason, we insist on homemade food from the best raw materials. Combining exceptional quality of materials and taste, as well as affordable prices”Fork says.

The upcoming events of  Fork Food Market will take place this Friday 1st of February 2019 & next Friday 8th of February, at the indoor market of The Old Nicosia Town Hall, opposite ”STOA”. Food will be available from 7pm to 11pm. The bar will be serving mulled wine and zivania to keep us warm and the DJ SixOneSix will be on the decks until midnight.

Check the Food Options below:

At Fork Food Market you will always find her serving you authentic Italian dishes such as lasagne and cannelloni always fresh and made with love. The main thing you will find at their stall though are their amazing pizzas! Some of the options are the Margherita (tomato sauce and cheese), the Piccante (spicy sauce, cheese and spicy salami) and the Colorata (sauce, cheese, ham, mushrooms, black olives, corn and coloured peppers).”

Pure Ice Cream by  Big Softie

Every recipe is produced in small quantities so there is always good quality control! The signature flavours of Big Softie are salted caramel and orange blossom.”

Traditional Tawian Food by Bao

Bao at Fork Food Market offers the choice of pork belly but also the vegetarian option of aubergine, both served with tasty sauces, fresh cilantro, homemade pickled celery and peanut powder.”

Nepalese Dumblings by MOMO

”The MOMO team is a new arrival in the Cyprus street food scene, coming to us with the traditional Nepalese Momo.  MOMO is a type of dumpling made of simple white flour and water and made by hand and requires trained craftsmanship. Usually filled with finely chopped vegetables such as carrot, spring onion, zucchini and Asian spices it can be served as a vegan option or stuffed additionally with minced chicken or pork.

Also, as part of the ‘healthier eating’ effort they have moved past ready-made sauces and frozen potato chips and they are offering homemade sauces like homemade ketchup and chimichurri sauce as well as the best homemade potato fries, all of which with no preservatives and added substances.”

Vegetarian and Vegan Creations by The Food Garden

The Tastier German Bratwurst by Top Dog

”The idea of Top Dog was to create a Hot Dog, but not the usual kind. After many tastings and searching they imported the German Bratwurst (Original & Pepperoni taste) from overseas & created ‘the tastiest German Bratwurst’ in Cyprus as many of their clients have commented. With their passion for taste and quality they found one of the tastiest bread rolls to use for their ‘dogs’ and also make their own homemade caramelised onion and sauerkraut as toppings.”

Facebook Is Outspending Amazon and Google to Dominate Voice-Activated Devices

Last year, Amazon and Google both backed their voice-activated devices with huge ad budgets across more than 28,400 TV airings, according to Spigot IncFacebook spent $131 million on TV alone during the fourth quarter to promote it’s video-conferencing device portal, amazingly outspending Amazon and Google (which is no easy feat)!

Tech companies are currently using TV’s brand-building power to promote their devices to a broad plethora of potential consumers. Experts are suggesting that the massive ad-spending trend will continue in the 2019 year, but indicate Facebook could potentially struggle with maintaining it’s aggressive ad spending.

The race for tech companies to control the living room is increasingly relying more and more on advertising, specifically TV advertising.

New to Running? Try This

Running helps people maintain good physical and mental health in countless ways. Some people though believe that running is not for them.

Apart from a healthy habit, running can actually be a fun activity and believe it or not, it can become ”addictive”.

If you are not the kind of person that enjoys solitariness, you can still run with a friend or you can even join a running club.

Some of the benefits of running with others are,according to LiveStrong, the below.

  • When running with others the time flies. Your focus isn’t on your watch because you are immersed in conversations.
  • When nobody is waiting for you to show up, it’s easy to talk yourself out of a run. But when another person is waiting for you it’s easier to commit to regular exercise.
  • Running with more experienced teammates is an excellent way to expand your running wisdom and optimise your running strategy.
  • Thanks to our human innate competitiveness, when you run with others you push yourself harder.
  • If you are sociable and you enjoy meeting new people, joining a running club is definitely a good idea.
  • Finally, you will discover of what you are cable of. Pushing yourself to the limits, mentally and physically, is the best way to increase self satisfaction and self esteem.

Many marathon races have already been scheduled for this year. The one that we are really looking forward to, here in Polarity Technologies Ltd, is Medochemie Nicosia Marathon which will be held on the 24th of February, 2019. Some people from Polarity Technologies Ltd‘s office will participate to the race, and they have already started training.

If you love challenges, as much as we do, then you should participate. If you enjoy meeting new people Medochemie Nicosia Marathon offers newbie runners free training. Click here for more.

We Got Treats From Japan!

Every now and then Polarity Technologies‘s team travels to other parts of the world.

We love travelling to foreign countries, especially to destinations with significantly different cultures from our. We even choose to extend our trips sometimes, in order to have the time to explore a bit more the area or nearby countries.

In an effort to share our experience with the rest of the team, we usually bring little souvenirs and local treats upon our return.

Alexandros Savvides, Polarity Technologies Ltd‘s Director of Accounting & Operations, has recently travelled to China for business and extended his stay, so he could visit Japan.

This was his first time in Japan, and based on his feedback his trip was an amazing experience. Given that Japan has a long history and a big reputation on desserts and treats, Alexandros couldn’t return to the office with empty hands.

He brought us some very interesting Japanese treats such us KitKat Wasabi &  KitKat Sake. He even brought us some … not-so-common snacks such us Shredded Dried Squid and Dry Cod with Sesame! Although we’ ve heard and read a lot about Japan, we’ve never been there. So this was a good chance for us to get a…taste!

The flexibility and freedom of our corporate culture, is something that we really love. It allow us more room and time to expand our horizons, live new experiences and grow.
