How to Batch Change File Extensions for Windows Files. Recently, I came across a problem where I had to change the file extension on a bunch of Windows files from no extension to .JPG. Someone sent me a large number of files, but for some strange reason, they had no file extension, even though they were images! Once I added the .JPG extension to the end of the file, I was able to open the images. There are many other reasons why you may need to rename file extensions, so I’ll show you how you can change them one at a time if you have a small number of files or batch rename file extensions if you have lots of files. If you have a file with no extension, Windows will probably assign a generic icon to it.

When you try to open it, the Open With dialog will pop up where you’ll get a list of programs to choose from. Obviously, since there is no file extension for the file, Windows is not able to determine which program should open it. In Windows 7, click on the Organize button and then click Folder and search options. Command Line ren *.jpg *.png. Hands Down the Best Way to Kill Weeds and It’s Not Roundup. In 1970, John Franz, a chemist for Monsanto, discovered that the chemical glyphosate is a potent herbicide that kills just about every kind of plant material imaginable. In no time, the company gave its miracle weed killer the brand name Roundup. Farmers, especially, went wild for Roundup. Just one problem: It was nearly impossible to kill the weeds without also killing their crops. So Monsanto sent its chemists back to work to develop glyphosate-resistant, or “Roundup ready crops” that have had their DNA altered (genetically modified or GMO) to allow them to be immune to glyphosate.

There is one provable and very compelling reason to not buy Roundup: It’s too expensive! First I will give you the ingredients, followed by two Weed Killer recipes using them: White vinegar. Table salt. Dishwashing liquid. WEED KILLER FOR AREAS TO BE REPLANTED. New Research Surfaces Spelling Bad News For Tylenol: It Doesn’t Just Kill Pain… Researchers from Ohio State University have discovered that the commonly used pain reliever, acetaminophen, has a previously unknown side effect: it kills positive emotions. In the study, participants who took acetaminophen reported feeling fewer strong emotions when they were shown very pleasant or very disturbing photos, compared to those who took placebos. You might be thinking correlation doesn’t mean causation, but when you use the Bradford Hill criteria, and examine all of the other studies done regarding the psychological effects of over the counter pain killers, the picture becomes clearer.

(source)(source) Acetaminophen is the main ingredient in the commonly used pain reliever Tylenol and has been used for more than 70 years in the United States, but this marks the first time that this “side effect” has been documented. It’s the most common drug ingredient in the United States, found in more than 600 medicines, according to the Consumer Healthcare Products Association. (source) 3 Symptoms Of A Lost Soul. By Andrea Schulman| Lost souls are people who are spiritually adrift. For whatever reason, these individuals have blocked the intuitive guidance coming from their higher selves. In doing this, they have also cut themselves off from feeling the infinite love of the universe, and this leads to struggle, anger and sadness. As a result, a lost soul’s life is very challenging. If you are currently working to raise your vibration and follow your highest path, you probably find it difficult to interact with lost souls.

These individuals can be some of the most frustrating people to deal with because they radiate lower vibrational energy, and the way that they interact with others can be quite off-putting. However, if we want to help these people we must react with sympathy, rather than anger and hostility. So, here are some of the frustrating symptoms of a lost soul, and how best for us to react in order to help them: 1) Defensiveness Your best reaction to this defensiveness? 2) Closed-mindedness. 4 Ways to Remain Awake While the Rest of the World Sleeps.

Gary ‘Z’ McGee, Waking Times In a world where the majority of people are so conditioned by an unhealthy culture that they cannot even fathom equality or the eradication of poverty, nor even perceive them as socially viable, and merely write them off as “it’s just the way things are,” it helps to have some tactics to fall back on in order to prevent our slipping back into our old ignorant ways. As the majority of the world sleeps, we, the courageously awake, must discover new ways to remain diligent. Here are four powerful (and fun) ways to remain awake while the rest of the world sleeps. 1.) Keep Questioning Authority to the Nth Degree “Have no respect for the authority of others, for there are always contrary authorities to be found.” –Bertrand Russell Keep disrupting the disrupters.

Let's be honest: relationships are complex, no matter what kind of personality you have. And some truths are universal, like fighting is never fun. Romantic gestures are usually appreciated. Communication is definitely valued. Compromise isn't always easy. But a lot of these nuances are only heightened if you're of a more sensitive nature.

HSPs respond more productively to positive experiences rather than negative ones, Aron said. We need our emotions to be validated. We get bored easily. We're more emotionally reactive in our interactions. Our ideal date involves a little downtime. We pay close attention to what our partner wants. "They not just in tune to what's good for them but also what's good for others," Aron said. We don't expect our partner to wear their heart on their sleeve. Find Your Purpose Within Minutes. We live in a society that for thousands of years has judged you on how you look and on “what you do for a living”.

When I say what you do for a living, what I mean is what you do to make money. Most people think that money allows a certain level of freedom and abundance in their lives therefore most people look for jobs that won’t necessarily make them happy in the moment but will be the most tolerable while bringing in the most income long term from their place in society. I want to say that I do not have the belief that money is the only way to happiness. I will also say that in my opinion, I think it is also perfectly fine to enjoy monetary abundance. The problem comes in when people start to depreciate their personal value just because they aren’t making a certain income or have certain material possession or educational requirements. What does this have to do with you? So many people on this planet feel lost because they are doing things just to make money.
