These days we’re all about things being faster. We’ve all walked into a room and suddenly realized we can’t remember why we needed to be there in the first place.

Make A Cheap & Easy Solar USB Charger Photos by Joshua Zimmerman The craftster behind the very popular $3 solar-powered emergency radio is back with a new awesome project: a cheap solar battery charger with a USB plug. Zimmerman wrote, saying that he saw a lot of small solar powered chargers being talked about over Earth Day, but there was a big problem: "They're all quite nice, but also quite expensive. So, he came up with his own, using one of our favorite reusable items -- the ever wonderful Altoids tin. In looking for the cheapest way to accomplish the task, Zimmerman found that he could build a USB solar charger for under $30 (or $10 if be buys parts in bulk, though it's not likely you'll be buying bulk solar cells and DC-to-USB converter circuits). Zimmerman states, "The central brain of our project is a DC to USB converter circuit. It can be done with a Minty Boost kit, a premade circuit off of ebay, or grabbing one from a cheap USB charger.

Richard Cassaro » Research The Triptych Temples Of Atlantis Unprecedented New Archaeological Evidence That A Highly Advanced “Lost Civilization” Flourished In A Remote Age Older Than Recorded Time Did the world’s first cultures inherit the same high wisdom from the same more ancient but now-vanished Mother Culture? The ancient pyramid cultures all built these Triptych (Three-Door) Temples. Does this mean they shared the same religion? Like the pyramids, the presence of these Triptych Temples worldwide throws enormous weight behind the “Atlantis” theory—the idea that civilization has much older roots than presently accepted by science; that there is a major forgotten episode in human history; that an advanced ancient culture once flourished but was destroyed in a cataclysm; and that history’s first known cultures were inheritors of its legacy. There are two different versions of history. We already know the mainstream version found in history books. Above: No records exist of any contact between these civilizations.

5 Things Every Extrovert Should Know About Introverts - Family Five things Every Extrovert Should Know About Intr First off, there are those who are reading this who might not know which camp they fall into, the extrovert or the introvert. Chances are, the majority of those reading this will know, but for those who don’t, let’s define those two terms here very broadly.Extroverts tend to be those who are more energized when around other people. Introverts tend to be those who are more energized when alone with themselves. Many people tend to hold several potentially damaging misconceptions about introverts, but through no fault of their own.I’ve been on both sides of the extrovert/introvert fence, and I can understand why extroverts tend to view introverts in a negative light, socially speaking, so I thought it would be best to write an article dedicated to helping extroverts understand their often very misunderstood introvert counterparts. 1. 2. 3. 4.

Getting Others Mad May Be a Winning Strategy "Don't get mad, get even," may not be the best advice in all competitive endeavors. In fact, anger can sometimes help people win, new research suggests. When people are made to feel angry in a game of strength, they tend to perform better. In games of strategy, anger is a handicap. Competitors, however, seem to realize this, the new study suggests — and they take advantage of their opponents' emotions. "You shouldn't look at emotions as something irrational," said study researcher Uri Gneezy, a behavioral economist at the University of California, San Diego and authoer of the book "The Why Axis: Hidden Motives and the Undiscovered Economics of Everyday Life" (PublicAffairs 2013). Test of strength In the new study, published today (Jan. 13) in the Journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, Gneezy and his colleagues give a world-famous example of the power and peril of anger. The case is clearly an example of anger going awry for Zidane, Gneezy told LiveScience. Game of skill

Ultimate Guide for Speeding Up your Windows 7 Windows 7 is, finally, a great operating system. Advertisement Every version of Windows, has many services enabled, while many optimizing tweaks are not enabled by default.

16 things I know are true but haven't quite learned yet There’s a difference between knowing something and living as if it were true. At the end of 2013, these truths are all lingering on that awkward threshold, for me anyway. 1) The sooner you do something, the more of your life you get to spend with that thing done — even though it takes less effort (or at least no more) than it will later. It’s the ultimate sure-thing investment and I pass it up all the time. 2) I never regret working out. 3) Whenever I’m playing with my phone I am only shortening my life. 4) Nothing makes me more productive and in-the-moment than a clean house. 5) Minute-for-minute, nothing I do is more rewarding than meditation. 6) Creative work is something that can be done at any time. 7) Acting the way you want to feel usually works. 8) Ninety-five per cent of my happiness comes from having a home, a functioning body and something to eat. 9) Our minds are geared to manage much less than we typically end up managing. Goodbye 2013, you were great. Photo by David Cain
