I am not unlike most men when it comes to my body temperature. Sure, there may be an insulated section around my tummy affectionately referred to as a spare tire, but I'm sure that has nothing to do with my inability to handle hot weather. Thankfully dad bod is in, and when I'm sleeping, I like to snuggle up as much as anyone. Snuggling isn't nearly as effective though if it's not already cold.
Everyone has had that one moment where they spent minutes trying to find their keys, which they always inadvertently drop in the most obscure of places. At best, it's a nuisance. At worst, it can completely ruin your perfectly scheduled day.
Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone was the book that opened up the magical world of reading for many children. As the franchise grew, so did the number of children who owed their love of reading to J.K. Rowling's amazing series.
Among photographers and interior designers, there's a saying. They all say, "Lighting is everything," and it's true. The right lighting can make an otherwise unwelcoming place look cozy, and the wrong lighting can make a mansion look like a wreck.
As someone who is not necessarily technologically-savvy, hearing terms like "virtual reality" and "augmented reality" made me feel like I was living in an episode of The Jetsons. Those terms, for all intents and purposes, sound so other-worldly to an older gentleman like myself, that I never imagined I would ever consider purchasing that kind of technology. After all, how much could something that literally puts you in another reality costs? Hundreds, if not thousands, right?!
Once, not too long ago, I went to visit a very wealthy friend of mine. She lived on a sprawling property in one of the richest towns in my state. It was a town where crime just didn't happen, where police would come out just because someone was having a birthday party and needed parking assistance.
I'm going to go out on a limb here, but I think it's safe to say nobody in the world loves films more than me. And yes, you read that correctly Robert Ebert (it would be an honor if you're reading this, by the way).
If you have been looking at recent studies, it's becoming clear that the job market is undergoing a very extreme change. Many of the jobs that currently exist will no longer be around in about 10 years, and even more will be gone in 20.
It's no secret that kids need all the help they can get if they are going to succeed in life today. The most important asset children can gain during their formative years is an education that is strong in both STEM and creative fields.
