Happy 25th Birthday, Google. Thanks For Making That Difference!
Twenty five years ago, I didn't even know that Google existed, but it has made such a dramatic difference to my life, especially when I ran my small business, I don't think I could function properly without it now. The Google corporation has impacted our world to such a degree, it is easy to take for ganted how it has changed our quality of life, vastly increased our knowledge of our world and seamlessly blended itself into the way we think and live.
8 Amazing Gifts You Have The Power To Give!
According to the latest data from the UK Office for National Statistics (ONS) and the Census Bureau for the United States, there are at least 28% of the population of these countries living alone - that represents over 8 million people in the United Kingdom as of 2022, and more that 37.5 million people in the US. This figure has also been increasing steadily over the past few decades.
The Curse Of The Musical Legends
Take four famous musical icons whose children have tried to follow in their footsteps: Bob Marley, John Lennon, Frank Sinatra and Nat King Cole - legends in their own time, with Marley still making a great impact in ours. Having followed the progress of their children over the years, it became patently obvious to me that neither of these rich, wealthy and talented ofspring will ever be 'legends' like their fathers, no matter how hard they work and how desperately they wish to make their own name. In fact, they will always be hovering just over the sea of attention while being judged every step by their father's fame. Dad will always be hanging around like a sweet smell to remind them of their position.
You're Heartbroken...How To Remind Yourself That You're Worthy
A break-up can affect everyone involved in it, but it can be particularly difficult for the person who did not desire it. This is because he/she may be feeling a range of negative emotions, such as sadness, anger, rejection, and betrayal. They may also be struggling to adjust to the loss of their relationship and the changes it brings to their life.
How The Type Of Workers We Are Help Or Hinder Our Progress
According to a 2022 Gallup study, 67% of the global workforce is disengaged, feeling no connection to their work, and are less likely to be productive or loyal to their employer. That's the majority of workers! In the United States, the disengagement rate is even more at 69%.
Can Anyone Help A Friend With Their Low Self-Esteem Issues?
It seems that low-self esteem affects far more people than we might imagine. According to a 2019 study published in the Journal of Personality and Social Psychology, an estimated 80% of people experience low self-esteem at some point in their lives. The study also found that low self-esteem is more common among women and young people than other groups.
Key Ways To Get People To Like Us
Many of us worry about whether others like us or not. This is a natural human desire, as we are social creatures who crave connection, acceptance and belonging. Additionally, some people have genuine difficulty getting others to like them, while others find it almost effortless. However, worrying too much about others liking us - and their opinions - can be unhealthy, often lead to anxiety, depression, and other mental health problems.
Could You Be A Millionaire?
Most of us dream of striking it rich one day, but judging by the low percentage of millionaires in our world, it is obviously not such an easy thing to do. In fact, the statistics speak for themselves. In the UK just 5.4% of the adult population are millionaires (about 2.85 million people), while in the USA it’s even lower, only 4.4% (or 22.3 million adults). So how do the lucky few manage it? Do they all have anything in common?
How To Make Friends With One Simple Thing
It seems that most of us want to make friends, but find it difficult, as revealed by a Pew Research Center study which found that 72% of adults say it is 'somewhat' or 'very important' to have close friends, but only 44% say it is easy to make new friends. Our ability to make friends seem to depend on our personality, especially as some people are naturally more outgoing, confident, friendly, and good at putting others at ease which tend to draw others to them. Others who are introverted may find it more difficult to put themselves out there.
How Task Responsibility Decides 'Fairness' in Relationships
Many men are often blind to the connection between how few chores they do and how their partners feel about them! Yet if a woman feels like a servant in the relationship, it will affect her perception of her value and the intimacy of the union. Being the sole person to clean the toilet and wash the floors is definitely not an aphrodisiac, or any kind of turn-on! The message you send to your spouse when you do very little around the house is mainly one of a lack of respect for her or him. When there is a feeling of mutual respect and appreciation, both partners tend to give more and the relationship prospers.
Do You Believe In Love At First Sight?
Well, it has certainly worked for me on a couple of occasions. The second was when I set eyes on my ex-husband at an event and knew that the attraction was mutual immediately I saw him with his friend and spoke to him. We lasted nearly 30 years and were still in love by the finish, except that we had diverged so much in our values and expectations, we could not sustain the relationship on love alone because too much resentment and anger had crept in.
