We all are watching TV with one eye on the big screen and one eye on the little one in our lap.
Especially when it comes to “event” programming, such as sporting events, award shows, or cult programming (Dr Who, Walking Dead, Game of Thrones, Dancing with the Stars) where you want to be part of the conversation immediately, watching TV while tweeting is almost de rigueur.
People in China are stereotypically believed to live longer, healthier lives – primarily based on their dietary habits. And as stereotypes go, that’s really not a bad judgement call to make on anyone’s part. Who wouldn’t want to be naturally considered healthier than those around you, solely based on your heritage or where you currently live?
Well, perhaps there’s something more at steak (HA!) than what we think is happening, diet-wise.
If you’ve been on a blind date, then you know the ritual: the awkward handshake to start, the awkward dinner and small talk, the awkward “should we kiss, hug, shake hands” moment at the end of the date, the awkward “how to say no to date number two” moment.
But some bars and restaurants have figured out a way to make it happen, and make a ton of money doing it. Whether they happen to be in the right place at the right time, or whether they’re a destination unto themselves, these TOP RESTAURANTS IN THE COUNTRY have proven that where there’s a will, there’s a way to make some dough in the food business.
Kids today are often considered too coddled when compared to how older generations were raised.
Everything from “participation medals” to “no score soccer games” to “teachers not allowed to mark papers incorrect” because it might hurt someone’s feelings are all a bunch of hooey for parents who had to endure the trials and tribulations of growing up themselves.
Whether it’s government interference or parents’ desire to truly protect their children to the extent of possibly going too far doing so, today’s parents have many things to worry about when it comes to raising their children.
We all have played BUZZWORD BINGO in our office meetings, conferences, and presentations.
Sometimes those corporate phrases are appropriate. Other times, it’s just a talking head trying to sound more important than they really are. Everyone knows they have a job to do (one would think), so we don’t need the demotivating words and phrases that oft-repeated without any real substance behind them.
We’re about to head into the holiday travel season, which – combined with everybody at the office trying to figure out how to use all their available vacation days before the end of the year – results in a whole lot of people going out on vacation at about the same time.
You could head out to the same old destinations you always do, but have you thought about doing something a little different, and maybe save some money doing it?
More and more Americans are being hit with higher grocery store bills, and it’s not all due to rising gas prices leading to an increase in transportation costs.
No, you aren’t seeing things when you browse through the “new low prices” sign at the grocery store — those “low prices” really aren’t lower than what they have been. In many cases, those “new low prices” are just a highlight of “hey, we don’t charge as much for this as the other guy is, but it’s still a higher price than you’re used to paying”.
