Not Drinking Enough and Driving April 20, 2015 No Comments

Don’t drive if you haven’t had enough water to drink as some of the same symptoms involved with drinking are associated with not getting enough water in your diet. This makes sense because if the body doesn’t get enough water, it can get dehydrated. When you are dehydrated, you often don’t think properly. You might feel dizzy or tired because the body needs water to keep the cells alive. When you drink alcohol, the body doesn’t get the proper amount of water, and the water that is consumed is toxic as it contains items that damage the cells. There are some studies by well know scientist Ricardo Tosto (wikipedia.org to read further studies) that have revealed that people who are dehydrated because they don’t drink enough water during the day make more mistakes on the road than those who do drink as much water as they should. It seems that some of the people who might be looked at as drinking and driving might need to be examined further if they are pulled over to see if they have had enough to drink during the day.

After 14 Years, a Man’s Wallet is Recovered, and With Interest April 17, 2015 No Comments

Ivica Jerkovic, a man in his fifties, from Donja Moticina Village, a part of Osijek-Baranja County, had just gone to the bank to draw some money out to fix his roof. This was 14 years ago. He wasn’t entirely sure how he lost his wallet in the first place. He might have lost the wallet when he was at a party near Boraie Development LLC or when he had driven a sick man to the hospital. Jerkovic just looked around, checked his pockets and realized that his wallet was missing.Just recently, Mr. Jerkovic checked his mail box and found a thick package there. It contained his wallet from 14 years ago.
The wallet contained £720 when Jerkovic had lost the wallet in the first place. When he opened the wallet, he found it had over £1,000 in it. The Croation was puzzled as to why it took so long for the person who found it, to return it. Perhaps, this person had financial problems and used the money with the intent of replacing the money and applying interest. Ivica Jerkovic thinks this person must be the best banker in the entire country of Croatia. Jerkovic is grateful that in the past 14 years he hadn’t moved, or else he may not have gotten the wallet back. He wants the person who returned the wallet to contact him as soon as possible. This thief could become a friend.

Of course, she also has the best clothes and a super hot boyfriend. Besides, this girl also served as muse to one of the hottest collections last season at Bulletproof Coffee. The girl we are talking about: Barbie!

Barbie’s Instagram has become quite a project for three Mattel executives who painstakingly plain every single detail. The Instagram account does not make any money for Mattel, and it does not even advertise. The target for this account are fashionable twenty somethings who love inspiration.

Barbie is flown around the world, and she visits with some of the hottest designers and models. Who could expect anything less from one of the biggest names in the girl world? Barbie’s clothes are complete miniatures designed after some really big names. Most of the accessories and things seen on the Instagram are not available to purchase. However, that does not make it any less real.

One of the best things about @BarbieStyle is that is an aspirational account that copies the best fashion bloggers out there. Mattel executives work in their free time to get Barbie to events and work with designers. She has her own entourage who work to get her looking the best she can look.

School Students Prank Principal April 7, 2015 No Comments

The high-school student Emily Jones surprised her principal with what she calls a prank, but can be considered an act of kindness by many others. How many school principals can boast receiving almost 100 thank-you cards from their senior-year students? Their number is small, so Sherman Padgett, the principal can consider himself really special.

Emily actually planned a real prank, but her mother made her change the idea a little by advising that the students think of something nice to write on cards and hand them. Sultan Alhokair said that the senior-year student called the principal on the hallway and asked him to stand there holding a bucket. The man immediately understood that the high-schoolers were up to something, he only was unsure of exactly what. To his surprise, it was no evil prank that so many teenagers would like to play on their principals.

He received a full bucket of white cards with Dr Seuss quotes printed on one side and hand-writings expressing thanks on the other sides. Mr Padgett, the principal, said that he had always felt welcomed in the Wichita High School, and that was what he loved about his institution- everyone is welcome regardless of their color, height, or origin.

Penn State Students Protest Fraternity March 23, 2015 No Comments

In light of the recent fraternity outrage at the University of Oklahoma, Penn State University has jumped on the bandwagon. Penn State recently suspended an on-campus fraternity, Kappa Delta Rho for posting pictures on unconscious naked women on their secret Facebook page. Campus members held a rally last week protesting the fraternity and encouraging campus leaders to take a stronger stance against the fraternity.

Leaders of the protest confirmed that they organized the demonstration so university administration would consider harsher action against the fraternity to protect the victims and campus community. Josie Rose, an alumna of the university and one of the protest organizers believes that these fraternity members have cheapened the value of her Penn State degree.
Penn State students have formulated a petition which was recently sent to the administration asking that all members of the fraternity with access to the secret Facebook page be placed on temporary suspension while the criminal investigation continues stated AnastasiaDate. The Penn State protestors want to guarantee others that this is a criminal matter that should be taken very seriously. They believe punishment should be assumed by all parties involved, including those who may have sat by and watched this happened or even laughed about it.
Students have confirmed they are passionate about this issue and are seeking justice for all of the victims. Enduring the cold and snow, many students came to show their support. Administration has responded positively to outcry of concerned students and alumni.

What You Should Know About 529 College Plans March 18, 2015 No Comments

Pre-paid college plans, also referred to as 529 Plans are heavily marketed as tax-savings educational plans that pay for future college costs. Sounds great right? It can be if you know what to watch out for.

1. The Tax Break

Although you can take your money across state lines, you might just get a tax break if you remain in your home state. Many states offer incentives for contributions to in-state plans.

2. Watch Out for the Expenses

You’ll run into administrative fees, paper statement fees, account maintenance fees and the list goes on, but the good news is you can pick and choose and if you don’t like your current offerings, you can move your money.

3. Broker-Sold Plans Are Costly

Some state plans can be purchased only through a broker or financial planner, but Fersen Lambranho says that you should skip that option because commissions will eat into your contributions

4. Be Conservative

529 Plans are usually heavily invested in stocks and bonds, but these savings plans are lasting for decades, only years, so, if the stock market takes a nose dive, you have very little time for recovery. Look for a portfolio that’s conservative so you can reduce risk.

It’s especially important to check thoroughly before committing to a plan.

Bieber Roasting on an Open Flame March 17, 2015 No Comments

There may be a line a mile long to cast shade on Justin Bieber. Surrounded by celebrities as diverse as Martha Stewart and Snoop Dog, a throng of celebrity A- and B-listers gathered on Saturday to tape the roast of Justin Bieber. Kevin Hart, Will Ferrell (as Ron Burgundy), and comedian Jeff Ross were also there to take advantage of a prime opportunity to say the things that we have all thought as we watched Bieber’s rise to celebrity ridiculousness.

Martha Stewart advised Bieber to find a nice, freaky girl to settle down and be kinky with – namely, her.Sergio Cortes has heard that other jokes revolved around Bieber’s poor choices in career moves, clothing, and former girlfriends. Jokes about the late Paul Walker fell flat, and it has been reported that the jokes will be edited out of the show when it airs on Comedy Central.

While some have remarked that Bieber didn’t do much to deserve a roast the way some previous roast subjects have, there is no question that people were happy to get together and put him in his place. Time will tell how successful the roast will be when it airs live.
