A World of Flavors in a Cup of Tea

by Tessa on September 29, 2014

There are teas for every flavor profile – green, black, yellow, and white tea, and many others. You will find a selection of flavors and tastes, from nutty and spicy teas to flowery, fruity, and chocolaty teas. There are also autumn, dessert, citrusy, earl gray, and straight teas. The history of tea begins in China. While tea drinking was a royal privilege for a long period, more and more species were planted, and tea shops opened doors with time. Today, we enjoy rare and exotic varieties such as guava papaya, Asian pear, mint green, silver needle, and many others. Delicious tastes and beautiful flavors are shipped from exotic and remote corners of the world.

Owning a car is a rite of passage for some students. Unfortunately though, owning a car isn’t as easy or feasible as riding the bus. While more than half the students surveyed said that it was important to have access to a vehicle during the school year, just over half of students use public transportation to get to school and work. Less than a third use their personal vehicle. Students who have not purchased a car yet identified the cost of fuel and auto insurance as their top barriers to ownership.

Generation Z is the next generation of buyers. They are digital savvy, born in a world that already had the World Wide Web.

Back to School

by Tessa on September 18, 2014

Back to school shopping is a common ritual for most students. In our August 2014 study, we surveyed students about their attitudes, expectations, worries and shopping plans this back-to-school season. We learned that while wanting to spend less this back-to-school season, many post-secondary students anticipate spending more. More than half of students surveyed agree that big ticket items such as laptops or tablets are worth the splurge and have electronics at the top of their wish list this back-to-school season. While much of their window shopping is done online, actual purchases are predominantly made on-site, with half of students going to big box stores (like Walmart) to do their shopping.

Coats of Arms Symbolism and Heraldry Symbols

by Tessa on September 15, 2014

The coat of arms is embroidered with heraldic and hereditary symbols and decorated with bearings. Its origins can be traced back to medieval Europe, with knights using coats of arms to establish identity. Today, many countries around the world have a coat of arms, including Spain, Somalia, Portugal, and Croatia. Some cities and provinces also have coats of arms, for example, Berlin and Hamburg. They are decorated with ancient elements and symbols derived from history. Elements such as crests, mottos, emblems, and double crosses are displayed as well as dolphins, fish, and other species. Many coats of arms incorporate coronets, wreaths, and shields that make them truly unique pieces.

It is safe to travel while pregnant. And pregnant women shouldn’t eat for two. There are strange customs and beliefs surrounding birth and babies. In China, for example, some parents potty train infants. While this saves a lot of money on diapers, infant potty training is uncommon in the West. If you live in Bali, your baby’s feet shouldn’t touch the ground for the first 3 months or so. And we have scientology. Scientologists argue in favor of silent birth. Noise of any kind can inflict trauma to the infant. Doctors and the scientific community question the benefits of silent birth. Noise and sensory experiences are important for the newborn.

The Google car is equipped with a plastic windscreen, wheel sensors, a radar and laser sensor, and a powerful processor. Self-driving cars offer many benefits – experts point out that they can save thousands of lives. Driverless vehicles are safe and more energy-efficient and will help minimize commute times. Many accidents are to blame on fatigue, distraction, lack of driving experience and skills, and driving under the influence. A driverless vehicle can help reduce serious incidents, crashes, injuries, and traffic-related deaths. There are some problems and issues, however, including potential legal challenges and the need to change safety standards. While driverless vehicles are quite safe, they are not 100 percent crash-free. Who is at fault if a crash or accident occurs?

Survey respondents want to improve their thighs and stomach area to be bikini-ready. They either buy specific swimwear to hide their love handles or try to incorporate more exercise to showcase a perfectly sculpted body. There are different workouts to build lean muscle and summertime confidence. Uphill walking also helps and so does strength exercise. Spend some time bikini shopping to find the right model…and size. It may come as a surprise, but swimwear size doesn’t match jean size. It is often larger. If you don’t buy this, incorporate slimming foods to be bikini-ready by Friday. There is plenty to do, but the bikini countdown is on.

Food Waste and Ways to De-clutter Earth

by Tessa on August 28, 2014

There are ways to improve your kitchen karma and conserve energy and water. Food waste is also a serious issue. About 20 percent of what we buy ends up in the landfills. Bits of food such as tea bags, apple cores, banana skins, and bones are thrown away. The problem is that there is food waste that is avoidable, for example, products that are not used by the use by date and overcooked food. Food waste and reliance on nonrenewable resources have serious social, economic, and environmental implications. Wasting food also means wasting energy for cooking, retailing, transporting, and growing crops. And bio-waste is already cluttering the planet. There are too many of us.
