After I found out about CBS's new reality show, The Briefcase, I knew I had to try and pitch a better idea to Mr. Les Moonves. My gut reaction is this new reality show will flop. There is nothing gratifying about watching struggling families try to rationalize who deserves to be financially helped more.
Move over people! There's a new biped in town: ducks. And they are getting their own traffic lane and beer (in England, at least). I discovered some helpful ways we can help our fine feathered friends. One of the main things that everyone should know is that bread (and chips) are not good for them or the environment.
If you haven't heard of Rhett and Link, you haven't lived. Ever since my daughter showed me footage of a 30-second commercial they created, I've been meaning to write about these two comedic geniuses. By trade, they are both engineers and lifelong pals.
As a student, I learned how to make the cheapest coffee taste fabulous. Actually, I think I inherited this ability from my father. And since I discovered the jaw-dropping cost of tuition these days, I decided it was time to let the cat out of the [coffee bean] bag.
If cats could talk, what would they say about us? How do they see us? Apparently, cats view us as clumsy, overgrown cats. We are their equals, though, not lesser - and they do love us. World renowned anthrozoologist John Bradshaw wrote a book called Cat Sense which has enlightened thousands of pet owners to the different ways cats communicate with us.
Besides man, beavers impact our planet more than any other creature. They are important to the life cycles of many animals, plants, and ecosystems. For hundreds of years, the beaver has been a national symbol of Canada. Find out how Canadians feel about our aptly named "busy beavers" and see how they build their magnificent dams and channels.
Google's improved Panda algorithm released earlier this fall has targeted low-quality content on even the largest writing platforms. It appears that quality is being rewarded over quantity. Thankfully, high-quality (small or medium-sized) sites such as InfoBarrel are leading the pack. I sat down with Ryan McKenzie and asked him a dozen questions.
With the holiday season almost upon us, many travellers will find themselves stranded at airports or staying with friends and family during inclement weather. Sometimes, a spare bed or two can mean the world to adults travelling with kids. Or, a guest has had one too many and shouldn't drive home.
Whether you realize it or not, we market ourselves everyday. When you go for a job interview, you are selling yourself. And keeping your job depends on how you sell yourself daily to the people you report to. If you run your own business, you might be selling your own product or selling the products of others.
Another Canadian comedian that I thoroughly enjoy watching or listening to is Scott Faulconbridge. He's proof positive that everyday life and situations can be hilarious. With impeccable comedic timing and physical gestures, Scott proves there's no need to exaggerate or add profanity to his act.
