According to this Japanese video, rolling down one window and opening and closing the opposite door a handful of times will quickly and effectively cool down a hot car. The video's only two and a half minutes, but unless you understand Japanese (or can read the Chinese subtitles), jump straight to the 1:52 mark to get the picture.

Znalezienie fachowej ekipy budowlanej z całą pewnością nie jest łatwe. Zdecydowanie odradzam korzystania z wszelkiego rodzaju ogłoszeń typu: tanio i szybko wybuduję dom.

The modern home is far bigger than the home of just 30 years ago – and far more cluttered! How can that happen? Basically, our demand for stuff is outstripping our ability to buy space – no wonder self-storage is one of the leading growth industries in the United States. Questions about runaway consumerism aside, what all this excess stuff means for most of us is more time spent maintaining our living spaces to keep some semblance of order in our lives. Most of us don’t want to spend our evenings and weekends – and more for work-at-home types – knee-deep in clutter, never sure where anything is, and constantly stepping over all those things that, for one reason or another, we just had to have.

What looks like a convivial scene is a waiter's nightmare: people at a table, chatting away, menus closed with drinks in their hands. Yet when Alex Martin, a 26-year-old waiter at Blue Smoke restaurant in New York, tried to take their order "they didn't even look up," he says.
The second you walk into a restaurant the waitstaff starts sizing you up to see what type of service you're expecting and how they should approach you. The Wall Street Journal has put together a list of some of the most notable cues you give off that define your service. If you know what you're doing, you can work the system for a better experience.
