BodyStepBodyStep is my second favorite Les Mills class. Go to their official website to find out the amazing number of calories you burn. I used to go to this class all the time in the summer when I could go during the day, but the nighttime class offerings are not conveniently timed for me. Think of it as informational checks and balances. I work in a medical library, and journals and research articles are often ranked on their or how often they are cited by other researchers. But that has created an unfortunate trend of journals wanting to publish exciting articles. So when you buyRead More →

Jingles have been around since the advent of commercial radio in the early 1920s, when advertisers used musical, flowery language in their ads. But it was on Christmas Eve, 1926 in Minneapolis, Minn., that the modern commercial jingle was born when an a cappella group called the Wheaties Quartet sang out in praise of a General Mills breakfast cereal. Executives at General Mills were actually about to discontinue Wheaties when they noticed a spike in its popularity in the regions where the jingle aired. Season 2 is so much better. From Season 3 on, it fires on all cylinders. Once they figured things out, theRead More →

Between 2003 and 2013, about 21 million households crossed that threshold, he said. Another 61 million households are expected to achieve those earnings by 2023.Older Chinese tourists generally like to travel in groups, said David Scowsill, CEO of the World Travel Tourism Council.China’s tourism boom is partially a result of government initiatives to encourage travel, such as building new airports. It’s all part of a bigger government plan to boost consumer spending and make the economy less dependent on manufacturing.Venturing further afieldChinese people tend to prefer traveling around Asia when they first set foot outside the country, but lately they’ve become more adventurous and areRead More →

China Xi offers another $60 billion to Africa, but says no to projectsChina has denied engaging in “debt trap” diplomacy, and Xi offer of more money comes after a pledge of another $60 billion at the previous summit in South Africa three years ago. Xi, addressing leaders at Beijing Great Hall of the People, said the new $60 billion will include $15 billion of aid, interest free loans and concessional loans, a credit line of $20 billion, a $10 billion special fund for China Africa development, and a $5 billion special fund for imports from Africa. AminAsadollahisaid delays on the project, especiallywith other pipelines likeRead More →

IMPORTANT: I have experienced this sensation and it is quite scary if you don’t know what it is early on I actually went to the doctor because I was worried there was something wrong (as is the first instinct when something feels weird with your head!). I also had dizziness, which I later found out is another symptom of this process. But never assume that something unusual is an ascension symptom. And there no way of really knowing if he useless or not by not giving him a try. You seem to be fixated on preconceptions and comparing him to more influential intellectuals as someRead More →

Bain’s investors and executives tended to do best when their companies grew in sales and profits. Sometimes that also translated into growth in the number of American jobs, but when that happened it was merely a happy byproduct of the core mission: fixing up companies to be sold at the highest possible price. In the entire history of private equity, it is doubtful that anyone’s financial reward was ever based on how many American jobs were created.. The defensive kill streaks like the IMS or sentry gun allowed me to keep enemies out of the drop zone by simply placing the IMS fairly close theRead More →

His tennis was just that good and his showmanship that compelling.What was most impressive and what no doubt helped drag Australia along for the ride was Kyrgios once again showed fight we haven always seen.His new found maturity was on show in his second round match against Viktor Troicki when he kept a cool head despite a mountain of distractions that included an interrupting spectator, a helicopter and technical difficulties. But was that a flash in the pan or is he really made of sterner stuff in 2018?It too early to say, but he went a way towards answering that question in style against Tsonga.Read More →

The Mitrice Richardson situation is so bizarre. “The creek bed in Malibu Canyon where Richardson naked mummified remains were eventually discovered is adjacent to a 21 acre ranch that is known for producing pornography. It is very secluded and has direct access to the creek bed. The key to solving the problem instead of repeatedly talking about it is a belief that there is a satisfactory solution. Caring about your partner’s wants and needs (as well as your own) is central to cooperation, but you cannot effectively meet your partner’s needs without his or her help. When your partner refuses to help solve the problem,Read More →

Nobody said this yet so I chime in for a job you really interested in, it worth actually rewriting your resume to make sure you tick all the boxes on the criteria. I have a “master version” of my resume which is very comprehensive every single job, slightly different emphasis on things, longer lists of keywords, etc. To match all different job kinds of descriptions and then I trim things out of it based on the job description itself.. I went to a crafting store, Michael’s, and specifically looked for cardstock that had a solid core feature. The paper is the color through and throughRead More →

I work in acute addiction with clients who have lost everything to the perils of drugs and alcohol. I work with people who have surrendered their families, their dreams, and their sanities all for a short rush of serotonin and dopamine. While motivation undoubtedly matters in one’s success, it isn’t always fixed. If you want to ban e cigarettes, then why not simply ban ALL cigarettes everywhere (and lose the sin tax in the process). Maybe the addiction to free money (from sin tax) is more powerful than any addiction to cigarettes. Yeah, that it..
