What was the Red Phone?

The Red Phone, also known as the Red Telephone, the Moscow-Washington hotline and the Hot Line, is a "confidence building measure" and communications system designed to decrease tensions and prevent accidental nuclear war by providing direct contact between the leaders of the United States and Russia. It links the White House (via the National Military Command Center) with the Kremlin.

This hotline was established in 1963 and links the Pentagon with the Kremlin (historically, with Soviet Communist Party leadership across the square from the Kremlin itself).

 Although in popular culture it is known as the "red telephone", the hotline was never a telephone line, and no red phones were used. The first implementation used Teletype equipment, and shifted to fax machines in 1986. 

Since 2008, the Moscow–Washington hotline has been a secure computer link over which messages are exchanged by a secure form of email.

Cat Ladder

Cat Ladder Why they call it like this .....  Because  you will use it exactly like how the cat use it...... check this  video below It's a ladder used for working on a sloping roof, with a hook at one end and pads to spread the load. Cat ladders are delightful contraptions that usually affix the the outside of a house or apartment building, providing a cat with easy access to the outdoors from a home that’s several stories up. This interesting cat ladder is built with small ledges enabling the cat to go from one to the other, but the tabby prefers to scamper straight up the middle, climbing the ladder. This well-trained cat comes when he’s call and climbs the ladder on command. Why they call it Cat Ladder check video below..... Thanks
