Need for Speed?
If you love an image (whether it's yours or someone else's) and want to make sure others get a chance to see it, you can “feature” it by choosing the “Spotlight” button.
When an image is Spotlighted, it receives enhanced visibility in premium spots throughout the site. Spotlighted images are rotated through these higher-visibility positions to ensure the best opportunity for the images to be seen by JPG users.
If you see a great photo that would make a perfect entry for one of our Shoot Out photo contests but it was uploaded by another user, now you can enter that photo in the contest and, if it wins, you get to share in the contest winnings.
Like a photo editor, if you've got an eye for great work, find it and submit it to a contest. If it wins, since you staked the entry fee, you'll take home part of the prize (the rest, of course, goes to the member who shot the image).
Collections are a JPG+ feature. You must be a JPG+ member to create new collections and to add photos to collections.

Yawning is just a symptom of moving into a relaxed state of being.
Yawning in public, then, is an ice-breaking signal.
It is condemned as impolite in a society which correlates relaxation with laziness.
On the other hand, in a slower paced society, relaxation is more abundant and so yawning is scarce.
This was my observation in rural India.
In our western society, practicing meditation can help realize this within your own body frame.
Here Ashish had fallen asleep on the Chai shop table where we were both sitting chatting for an hour or more.
No appolgies are expected. It is just the nature of everyday life in rural India. You're tiered, you sleep. No offence.
