Learn about an Alternative Source of Clean Energy

I had posted before about how eating less might help save the planet. But maybe there's an alternative approach so solving the energy crisis, and we might be sitting literally on a source of clean energy! Have you ever visited a children's museum or a museum of science? They always have an exhibit of a stationary bike connected to a generator powering a light bulb. Why hasn't anybody looked into this?!! The trick is to make this a collective effort. A single bike might power a laptop, but collectively we could power some homes. If all the gyms would connect all of their aerobic machines to a generator, they could produce a significant amount of energy. We could fill two birds with one stone: fight obesity in America by making people exercise at the generator gyms. This would mean that America would be #1 in Energy Source from its obese population. So next time you're eating a chocolate bar, remember that you might help solving the energy crisis one day.

Halloween evolved from it's Celtic origins of celebrating the Harvest to becoming a fun excuse for dressing  up. I never really went "trick or Treating" during Halloween, but I do dress up and eat lots of chocolates. So even though people grow up, let's keep Halloween going cause there's always a reason for dressing up. Let's see how this girl managed the transition of Halloween as a girl to Halloween as a woman.

Learn how to give a Hand Shake

Living in different countries, I've found myself in some weird situations while greeting where I didn't know if to give a hug, a kiss on the cheek, or hand shake with pat on the back. You can never go wrong with a solid, firm, international hand shake. Have you ever given a hand shake where the other person sneaks in too early and it feel like you're shaking a fish? Or when they get deep in there and your thumb gets all tied up? A proper hand shake goes a long way in most cultures, so learn the way.
