10 Ways to Search Google for Information That 96% of People Don’t Know About. In our era of advanced technology and high-speed Internet connections, you can find information on virtually anything. In the space of just a few minutes, we can find recipes for the tastiest pie or learn all about the theory of wave-particle duality.

How to Find Product Sources on Pinterest - Chris Loves Julia. I shared this cool trick I discovered on Pinterest on my Instagram story, but since those disappear after 24 hours, and have had a few questions about it, I decided to share it here, too. So many times, our favorite inspiring spaces on Pinterest, are full of droll-worthy products and pieces that really make the space and are sometimes even the reason we pin a picture in the first place. So I was really excited to find a way to find the sources for these products within Pinterest! Let’s take Sugar Paper’s stationary display that I pinned from Lonny.com as inspiration for our One Room Challenge as an example.

I loved the shallow shelves, but I really really loved the straight-armed scones.

The 6 Secrets to Keeping Cut Flowers Fresh. When it comes to the time and effort put into maintaining the life span of a beautiful bouquet of flowers at home, the majority of us are slackers. It’s easy to forget that those $12-a-stem peonies aren’t just beautiful, they are also living things that need a little love and care in order to last more than a couple of days. Floral stylist Brittany Asch has been providing this sort of tenderness to stems and bulbs and buds her entire life, and teaching others to do the same since opening her studio BRRCH in 2013 in New York and, later, Los Angeles. She has designed wild, creative, and vibrant floral arrangements for the pages of magazines (including this one), film sets, museums, album covers, and much more.

She’s an aesthete, yes, but one with a diverse scientific knowledge of flora and how each variety should be properly handled. Buy bulbs or greenery. Look for fresh blooms. Cut and soak.

Aerial Yoga: Aerial Yoga Classes London: Flying Fantastic. Aerial yoga is a form of yoga which uses a low hanging, wide aerial sling hung like a hammock to aid traditional yoga postures by supporting your body weight. This helps to achieve these postures and deep stretches in a more relaxed way. Using a yoga hammock can help to decompress the spine and avoid some injuries associated with practicing these stretches and positions without the aid of the fabric. This weightlessness removes compression from the spine, providing greater comfort and vastly increased freedom of movement. Poses that would otherwise be restricted become more accessible with the support of the Yoga Swing, making this a great class for all levels - Irrespective of experience.

During my freshmen year of college I had a Western Civ. professor from the the Czech Republic, who out of no where one day, went on a tangent about Absolut Vodka. He demanded that none of us drink it because it is bottom of the barrell vodka that was just packaged very nicely to sucker American buyers, all in the name of Sweden needing a product to export.

Well, he was kind of right. Back in 1879, Lars Olsson Smith developed a new distillation method, called rectification, and is still used today. Before this revolutionary development, vodka in Sweden was dubbed “bränvin”, or we would call it, burnt wine. Guess what it was? Smith took on the wine and spirits monopoly of Stockholm, only to become rich and then lose it all, and have his vodka swallowed up by The Swedish Wine and Spirits Corporation. However, it was this corporation that brought Absolut to the rest of the world. As the 100 year anniversary approached, the company looked towards the U.S. market.

Hang on a few more weeks and head to the lot on a weekday starting in August. See, toward the end of the year, dealerships are making way for new models, and if you’re one of a few customers on a not-so-busy workday, they’re more likely to extend a better deal. Luggage: March Stores get ready for the summer travel season by rolling out new suitcases in May, so they like to clear out older stock a few months prior. Mattresses: Spring and Summer Holidays For some reason, mattress sellers love holidays.

Your Lifestyle Has Already Been Designed (The Real Reason For The Forty-Hour Workweek) By David Cain / raptitude.com Well I’m in the working world again.

I’ve found myself a well-paying gig in the engineering industry, and life finally feels like it’s returning to normal after my nine months of traveling. Because I had been living quite a different lifestyle while I was away, this sudden transition to 9-to-5 existence has exposed something about it that I overlooked before. Since the moment I was offered the job, I’ve been markedly more careless with my money. Not stupid, just a little quick to pull out my wallet.

As a small example, I’m buying expensive coffees again, even though they aren’t nearly as good as New Zealand’s exceptional flat whites, and I don’t get to savor the experience of drinking them on a sunny café patio. When I was away these purchases were less off-handed, and I enjoyed them more. I’m not talking about big, extravagant purchases. In hindsight, I think I’ve always done this when I’ve been well-employed — spending happily during the “flush times.” The Scale of the Universe 2. Smart Answers to Stupid Job Interview Questions | Liz Ryan. Uk.businessinsider. Intro to Solar Orientation [Solar Schoolhouse] Fly around your family tree with a new interactive website.

Misuse and failure of birth control are major contributors to the millions of unplanned pregnancies in the United States each year. When failure rates of contraceptives are mentioned, they usually refer to a given year of use. Less understood is that the risk of failure is compounded over time. The longer any method of contraception is used, the greater the probability of unplanned pregnancy — the same way that any small risk, taken repeatedly, grows in likelihood. This is true for all contraception methods, even in the highly unlikely event that they are used perfectly, every time.

These charts show probabilities of pregnancy while using each method, alone, for up to 10 years, by two standards: Typical use: This is the norm, reflecting the effectiveness of each method for the average couple who do not always use it correctly or consistently. Perfect use: A measure of the technical effectiveness of each method, but only when used exactly as specified and consistently followed. Spermicides. Bristol - Pinpoint local information.

BEDTIME STORIES FOR INSOMNIACS. Once upon a time there was a little country mouse who lived in a rickety old kitchen cupboard in a ramshackle house belonging to a hard-working farmer and his wife. Needless to say the farmer and his wife were poor.

But because they worked hard every day and were able to scrounge together enough to eat, they lived a reasonably contented but low profile life. And the little country mouse led a pleasant life as she enjoyed the beautiful countryside and there were always plenty of crumbs to be gathered after the farmer and his wife ate their simple supper. Now the little country mouse - being a mouse - had of course millions and millions of cousins. Presently the farmer and his wife retired for the night - (since they did a great deal of physical labor and had paid off their debts years ago, the farmer and his wife had no trouble sleeping).

The country mouse had often heard that life in the Big City was more elegant and sumptuous and she was curious to see it for herself. "Quick! "Whew! " Soft: ankles rehabilitaion and strenghthening .
