It's all about moderation:
Most people, when trying to lose weight, obsessively count the calories they eat throughout the day. Although calorie information is easy to find and many people depend on it, it turns out that calorie information posted in restaurants and even on the back of food packages are not even accurate. http://vitals.lifehacker.com/why-you-can-t-...

It's okay; you don't have to be afraid anymore. This video from +TED-Ed shows you the right way to use the infamous semicolon. (In your writing, not your code.)

I use semicolons regularly; breaking the 2nd rule, however, may occasionally happen though.

The delicious power of a vacuum chamber.
If you want some pickles as soon as possible, but don’t want to go to the store, you can make your own at home in about 30 seconds.

Seriously, it's not like the beach is any better. 
You’ve probably heard that it’s not chlorine that makes your eyes red when you swim, it’s the chlorine binding with other people’s pee. I look at it a different way: there will always be gross stuff in pools. That’s why we put chlorine in them. Your red eyes mean the chlorine is working.

Upgrade your lunch - all it takes is a little prep, and a little hot water:
The most frustrating part of eating lunch at work is dealing with the microwave. Unless you time it exactly right, there is always a line and it usually smells strongly of popcorn. I’m here to tell you that you don’t need that microwave in your life; you can make tasty, fast lunches using hot water.

When a colleague is going through a personal crisis, it's wise to strike a balance between showing support and respecting their privacy.
When you spend over 40 hours a week with the same group of people, you can’t help but form bonds. Shared experiences at office, dealing with tough bosses, and frequenting favorite lunch spots can turn colleagues into personal friends. But when a coworker is going through a personal crisis, how do you show support while respecting their privacy?

Build a kite and let it fly.
Aerial photography is a lot of fun and you have a ton of options for doing it. These days drones are certainly one of the most popular, but balloons work too. If that’s all too much of an investment, Make shows you how to do it with a kite.

Try a box kite, which is really stable in the air but boring to fly. A delta conyne design is also good but not as stable. Use a dog stake screwed into the ground to hold your line.

Trust us, you'll get a better fit.
Whether you’re planning to buy a pair of hiking boots or just everyday sneakers, try to go shopping for them in the evening. You’ll end up with a better fit, and a more comfortable pair of shoes as a result. Here’s why, and it makes perfect sense.

If you're in a creative position, words like "introduce", "design", and "innovate" are good eye catchers.
If you like a job opening but don’t think your resume will get you an interview, you probably aren’t using the right words. Tweaking your CV with keywords related to different types of positions can get you through the door.
