28 Dignified Ways to Impress Everyone Around You. Post written by: Marc Chernoff Email Far more often than any of us like to admit, our actions are driven by an inner desire to impress other people. This desire is often reflected in the brand name products we use, the bars and restaurants we frequent, the houses and cars we buy and the careers we choose. But are name brand products, fancy bars, houses and cars really that impressive? Why? Consider the following questions: He drives a Porsche, but can he truly afford the car payment? You get the idea.

Now take a moment and imagine a person who loves what he does for a living, smiles frequently and bleeds passion in every breath he takes. Here are 28 dignified ways to impress everyone around you. We make a living by what we get. Be authentic. Of course, the coolest thing about this list is that everything you need to impress everyone around you is already contained within you.

Beaucoup de consciences s’éveillent sur des problèmes ou pratiques dans le monde perpétuées depuis trop longtemps et qui doivent désormais changer. Beaucoup de personnes désirent prendre les rennes de leur vie en mains et sortir du schéma imposé par la société, pour atteindre le bonheur et la vie qu’ils ont vraiment envie de vivre – pas une vie dictée par la télévision, les magazines, les films, les codes sociaux et toutes de sortes de clichés dénués de sens dont bon nombre souhaitent désormais s’affranchir. Le monde s’éveille aussi en matière d’alimentation.

This Device Provides Clean Water for Pennies a Day. Photo: WaterconePassive Solar One Step Water Condensation FTW! We wrote about the Watercone back in 2004, but considering how much TreeHugger's audience has grown since then, it's likely that only a handful of you were reading the site back then. I think it's time to have a second look at this very clever device that has the potential to help provide clean drinking water for millions of people who are lacking access to clean water (or if they do, maybe the access is intermittent and they could use a plan B). This could save many lives for sure. Read on for more details and a demonstration video. Photo: WaterconeStep #1: Pour salty / brackish Water into pan. Then float the Watercone(r) on top. Photo: WaterconeStep #2: The evaporated Water condensates in the form of droplets on the inner wall of the cone. It's also very durable, easy to transport (they stack easily), inexpensive to produce, and low-tech enough that it can be used even if no other infrastructure is present.

Aura - Learn to see your Aura image with your own eyes. What is the Aura ? Everything in the Universe seems to be just a vibration. Every atom, every part of an atom, every electron, every elementary “particle”, even our thoughts and consciousness are just vibrations. Hence, we may define the Aura as a electro-photonic vibration response of an object to some external excitation (such as an ambient light for example).

This definition is sufficient for the purpose of reading Auras, providing that we can train ourselves to see the Aura vibration.The most important property of the Aura seems to be the fact that it contains INFORMATION about the object.Aura around living (conscious) objects (people, plants ...) changes with time, sometimes very quickly. Aura around non-living object (stones, crystals, water...) is essentially fixed, but can be changed by our conscious intent. Web > web economy bullshit generator.

Corporate Bullshit Generator. 10 Insanely Awesome Inspirational Manifestos. There are certain messages that serve to get you “back to one” when you find you’re going off course. Whether you use tools such as a manifesto, a personal mission statement, a vision board or a list similar to Benjamin Franklin’s “13 Virtues”, taking the time to identify with one and then keeping it handy is worthwhile – and perhaps even imperative.

BUB is a very special one of a kind critter. More specifically, she is the most amazing cat on the planet.

Discovered as the runt of a healthy feral litter in a tool shed in rural Indiana, she was taken in as a rescue when it was clear that she would require special care. BUB was born with a multitude of genetic anomalies which all add up to one of nature’s happiest accidents. She is a “perma-kitten”, which means she will stay kitten sized and maintain kitten-like features her entire life. She also has an extreme case of dwarfism, which means her limbs are disproportionately small relative to the rest of her body and she has some difficulty moving around. She has very short, stubby legs and a weird, long, serpent-like body. Her lower jaw is significantly shorter than her upper jaw, and her teeth never grew in which is why her tongue is always hanging around. She is unlike any other cat in so many ways that some believe that she might actually be from outer space.

True, it may be very difficult and very hard to live, depending, but anyone who's driven, hiked, or camped in the American South West will have noticed that cities and ranches crop up where there's surface water or where there's been a well dug. Within the state of California, Nevada, Arizona, Utah, New Mexico, and Colorado, there are deserts, mesas, mountains, and forests where normally people never or rarely visit; not-so-secret places where there's water, access to a road within a day's hike, and where a fairly rugged individual may hide while remaining basically healthy, marginally well fed, and reasonably sane. In this section I'll look at two such environments, neither of which I would recommend, but one of which I'd suggest is a reasonable way to live in basic health while either on the run, hiding out from the law, old girl friends, the draft for an illegal war, putative wives and such.

I do not have much time to sew these days, but I do have time to show you how I make "fabric loops"...for functional purposes. There is such a loop included in the Colette Patterns Negroni Shirt. There are similar methods for making a length of tube to use for multiple buttons, however please note that this tutorial shows how I make a single flat loop for the specific purpose of replacing a buttonhole at the very top of a Convertible Collar shirt. ~Click Photos to return to blog, click your browser's Back Button~ To make a single button loop, first start by cutting a strip of fabric on the bias that is about 1" wide and about 3" long. Then as shown above, fold it in half width-wise (RIGHT SIDES TOGETHER) and "finger press" along the folded edge to make a center crease.

Now at your machine, pull out a long length of both the bobbin and top thread. As shown above, leave a loop of both thread tails behind the presser foot. Labels: More Sewing Tutorials.

Just retaining a single formula can mean pounding the same information into your skull dozens of times. If your computer hard drive had this accuracy, you’d probably throw it out. Unfortunately, you’re stuck with your brain. The good news is that you don’t need to learn by memorization. The vast majority of information is better stored in your head using a completely different system – learning through connecting ideas together. A few years ago, I noticed that smart people seemed to learn differently than most other people. While there are undoubtedly some genetic advantages that allow some people to learn effortlessly, I think part of this difference in success comes down to strategy. Is Your Brain a File Drawer or a Web of Ideas?

A computer stores information as thousands of electrical 1s and 0s in a linear fashion. However, your brain isn’t a sequence of bits and bytes, so this approach doesn’t make sense. 1. 2. 3. CATS. Fairyland :: Autonopedia: Practical Answers For Sustainable Living. Soler's Fractal Gallery: Three-dimensional fractals. These fractals are three-dimensional because, although they are two-dimensional pictures on the screen, they depict three-dimensional virtual objects that exist somewhere in mathematical space, in the same way as a perfect cube exists as a mathematical object.

Making three-dimensional fractals is like photographing a sculpture, whereas making two-dimensional fractals is like photographing a painting. With the three-dimensional fractals you can change the angle of view, alter the direction of lighting, move in closer, rotate the object and even penetrate the surface (ouch!). In other words, these three-dimensional images give flat views (just as photos do) of a three-dimensional world.

Moving from the flat plane to solid shapes means a whole new world to explore and I am excited about it. All the fractals here were made using the Visions of Chaos program, which is available at Softology. Here is a good explanation of how the mandelbulb was created plus some fine images. Snowflakes Up Close: A Small, Fragile World. If you’re one of those people who likes to ponder things while looking out a frosty window on a cold winter day, these pictures will clear up one of those long standing wonders: each snowflake really IS unique. Some look like roman columns, others circuit boards or spaceships.

Taken under high magnification using a microscope, these images bring a fragile and beautiful world into view.
