X23 was created for the cartoon tv show X-Men: Evolution. Interesting seeing what they're doing with her in this rated R movie version... <3

Ugh, Still Using Wikipedia? These Alternatives Are More Reliable
Even though Wikipedia is a good resource, it's not the best that the internet has to offer. You could be getting better results on different websites. Let's check some alternatives to Wikipedia.

"The one thing that can help boost overall reading ability, science shows, is practicing reading for comprehension. "

Ugh always with the practice...
California researchers looked at decades of research - and concluded speed readers don't remember what they read.

Whenever I feel a little down, I google and read threads from people who don’t understand how email works.

I also love that people who don’t know how email works … Refuse to believe that user error (their own or others) exists as a reason.

Let's not treat protests as new. Most inaugurations have had protests. Disagreement, concerns, and conflict are all healthy and constructive steps toward problem solving.
You get two guesses — and you'll probably get them right.

Getting into this podcast where they tell the original versions of myths. Not really getting why Disney renamed Princess Badroulbadour to the western name "Jasmine"
The story of a poor man who finds a being of unlimited power, and not only uses it to put food on the table, but goes a little farther to take over the kingdom and become the richest man alive.It's the original story of Aladdin, but it's

My podcast focuses on low-stress productivity. Mostly targeted at artists and designers.

Binge Watching = super efficient. As is Binge Doing / Single Tasking. I’m a huge binge doer.

Every other week I do a super short “Quick Tip”.

This one on multitasking I feel like could use a full episode in the future. The experiments linked to switching costs offer some weird surprises:

We get worse at our ingrained habits when we switch tasks. Bilingual individuals get worse with their native language when they switch between two languages.

We’re all have multiple types of activities in our lives. Diverse activities increase happiness. Just don’t try to do them all at the exact same moment.

It’s like watching Marvel’s Luke Cage and Game of Thrones at the same time.
Try this: Stop Multitasking. Focus on one task at a time. One aspect of one task. Multitasking even hurts well-practiced habits. A 1990’s experiment on productivity demonstrated that switching between two tasks slowed participants. The experiment was shared by the American Psychological Association. If a participated repeated the same task again and again, they were …

Their tactics are pretty aggressive. Continuous calls asking for me to extend my loan or take a new one. Sure the interest rate will be lower, but with the longer loan term you'll be paying more. I'd rather live on what I can really afford and work toward having savings. If you need a loan, they can provide it so there are advantages here. Set up a payment plan. Pay it off. Wouldn't use them again.
