Back in the 1970s, there were some interesting things came out of Detroit, and the Plymouth Superbird was one of them. With a wedge-shaped nose and an massive wing mounted on the rear trunk, the Superbird was something to behold. As you might imagine, there is a story behind these unusual cars and www.lynchchryslerdodgejeepram.com filled us in on the all the details. [Read more…]
Did you ever notice how you get a sudden burst of energy at the start of a new year? That’s no coincidence, nor is it a unique event. It’s a collective energy surge, which experts suggest is driven by hope. Maybe some people are hoping they’ll turn over a new leaf in the coming year. Others are hoping the new year will bring them better fortune than the previous one.
But can you translate this hope into a plan for success? You can, but that hope needs to be bolstered by a solid plan, otherwise you’ll end up like a farmer hoping that his crops grow even though he didn’t plant anything. [Read more…]
With a newborn son whose life I’m projecting way into the future, I’ve been thinking a lot about college lately. In the United States, going to college is the social norm. Everyone goes to college (pretty much). But should they? Let me point to three reasons why college is no longer necessary for success.
Every house has a first aid kit. That is basic knowledge. But do you have an emergency kit that will help keep you alive just in case you experience a natural disaster? At this point, many families in the Philippines are creating their own disaster emergency kits, if they havenâ€™t got one already. Some may think that it is taking caution to the extreme, but if you experienced what the Filipino people experienced in the past week, you will understand that it can make the difference between life and death.
Hereâ€™s what you need to prepare your own disaster emergency kit. Remember, you never know when you might need it.
1. Pack about 2,000 calories worth of food per person per day. Also pack drinking water. There are plenty of preserved and ready to eat food products in the market today. Just make sure that you replace your stock regularly based on the expiration dates.
2. Throw in some warm bedding. Fleece or wool blankets should be the priority as wool acts as a fire retardant. Both materials will keep you warm even if they get wet.
3. A first aid kit should also be included. Pack gauze, medical tape, painkillers, disinfectant, burn and wound cream, petroleum jelly, and blood coagulant.
4. Standard rescue items are a must: a flashlight, matches or a lighter, a whistle, some rope, a Swiss knife, and so on. Itâ€™s a good idea to invest in a flashlight and a radio that does not need electric power â€“ there are plenty of options these days.
5. Get a good bag to pack your stuff in. A dry bag (backpack style) is the best option as it is tough and waterproof.
Bottom line: pack only the things that you will need to survive.
Going back to the situation in the Philippines, there are still a lot of people who need aid in terms of food, clothing, and medication. Contact the nearest Red Cross chapter or the Philippine embassy if you want to offer your help. Even better, donate directly to the Philippine Red Cross by clicking below.
What would drive a man to end his family’s life. This is sad news, brace yourselves. You’ve heard that Ervin Lupoes has decided to end his life and his family’s. Authorities investigating this has mentioned the motive was because “he has no job and has five children”. Taking matter into his own hands he has ended what else he has for permanent worry-free blackness.
America is so deep into recession today that citizens are looking at quickly getting out of the challenge. Huge companies have announced that they will make major cuts on jobs that there are endless stories of anxiety and despair in the country. It is tough, and even “rolling with the punches” doesn’t seem to offer anything, not even a glimmer of hope.
America needs a savior, America needs The Savior. I believe this is the time to turn to God, our miracle-worker. America should not stand up proud, it should kneel down in humility, acknowledging it is no super-power after all, but powerless in crisis such as these.
