By | February 2nd, 2017|Categories: Relationships & Social Life, Social life|Tags: , , , , |

I’d like to preface this article by briefly pointing out what I mean by being real. Being real is not the same thing as being cruel or malicious. Criticizing people, insulting them, and pointing out their failures for sport is not being real, it's being abusive. Being real is about taking the time and making the effort to be genuine with people, and it can make a big difference to your sense of self-worth and the quality of your relationships

Junk DNA? Or Does It Reveal The Source Of Our Mind & Intelligence?

By | October 19th, 2014|Categories: Science & Technology|Tags: , , , |

Have you thought deeply about the latest discovery in genetics? DUF1220 – “DUF” stands for a (protein) domain of unknown function –presumably “junk DNA.” But this one seems to be what distinguishes us as “human” and may correspond to greater brain functionality. In fact, we possess more than twice the amount of replications (copies) of this protein as a result of the instructions (code) of our genome than our nearest genetic relative –the chimp.

Fast food has an extremely bad reputation, wouldn't you think? But the truth is, you don't know the half of it! I spent much of my young adulthood eating fast foods. I wasn’t cooking much home prepared food because I was busy going to parties and hanging out with friends. Little did I know,  I was endangering my body and mind.

“The man who doesn’t read books has no advantage over the man who can’t read them” – Mark Twain Hey! What’s up? My name is Simon!

I love the power of Freecycle. With the use of few candles, you can achieve your free room heating and you can also save few bucks. I managed to get enough terra cotta pots to make six large candle space heaters. Now I made the mistake of using too many pots. With large ones on the outside, they were not as effective. So with a quick change out, we removed the largest pot and they performed perfectly. Now I
